Now Open: AWS Region in Tokyo I have made many visits to Japan over the last several years to speak at conferences and to meet with developers. I really enjoy the people, the strong sense of community, and the cuisine. Over the years I have learned that there's really no substitute for sitting down, face to face, with customers and potential customers. You can learn things in a single meeting that might not be obvious after a dozen emails. You can also get a sense for the environment in which they (and their users or customers) have to operate. Long story short, we've just opened up an AWS Region in Japan, Tokyo to be precise. Although I can't share the exact location of the Region with you, I can tell you that private beta testers have been putting it to the test and have reported single digit latency (e.g. 1-10 ms) from locations in and around Tokyo. Existing toolkit and tools can make use of the new Tokyo Region with a simple change of endpoints. This offering goes beyond the services themselves. -- Jeff;

使用Amazon CloudFront实现质优价廉的CDN加速网络 « 写一点 发现我自己好像和Amazon的云服务杠上了,在使用S3云存储服务备份并保管自己的文档后,昨天晚上我又瞄上了Amazon的另一个云服务:CloudFront。 CDN是什么?CloudFront又是什么? 这一节内容适合非技术型用户。 CDN是Content delivery network(内容分发网络)的简称,这一技术以往只应用于大型商业性网站。 这一系列过程都是完全自动实现的,并且在配置好后,对于网站的内容提供方(例如正在写这篇文章的我)也是完全透明的。 简而言之,通过使用CDN,可以有效提升全球各地访客打开网页的速度。 CloudFront则是由Amazon提供的一套覆盖全球的CDN网络。 根据介绍,Amazon的CloudFront目前在全球下列地区建立了提供CloudFront服务的数据中心: 美国 维吉尼亚周,阿什本 德克萨斯州,达拉斯/沃斯堡 佛罗里达州,杰克逊维尔 加利福尼亚州,洛杉矶 佛罗里达州,迈阿密 纽约 新泽西州,纽瓦克 加利福尼亚州,帕罗奥图 华盛顿州,西雅图 密苏里州,圣路易斯 欧洲 阿姆斯特丹 都柏林 法兰克福 伦敦 巴黎 亚洲 香港 东京 新加坡 因此只要使用CloudFront服务,就等于可以通过上述遍布全球主要地区的缓存服务器,为您的网站提供加速服务。 如何收费? 首先有一个问题需要注意:如果使用CloudFront服务,等于需要创建一个“来源服务器-AmazonS3-缓存服务器”这样的路径。 因此来说,这种工作模式下,对于S3,等于需要支付在S3中存储所有缓存内容的费用(按月收取),支付S3的传入和传出网络流量,以及S3的传入和传出请求处理费用各一次(从来源服务器传入S3的请求收取一次,从S3传到某一台缓存服务器的请求收取一次)。 听起来比较复杂,关键这里面涉及到S3的相关处理,以及CloudFront缓存服务器的相关处理。 至于具体的费率,可以在这里看到: 针对不同地区的缓存服务器,具体的流量和处理费用有略微差异,其中日本的费用最贵。 本网站的整个目录下所有文件,包含php,以及png等,全部加起来大概在257 MB左右,就算整200 MB。 因此每月,通过CloudFront分发15 GB数据的费用为:15 GB * $0.201/GB = $3.015 如何使用? 如果您也使用DreamHost提供的虚拟主机或VPS,那就最简单了。 至此,全部设置工作就都搞定了。

notification - How to add SMS text messaging functionality to my website? - Pro Webmasters Wicket - Navomatic The Navomatic application shows the use of border components and links to create a navigation component that can easily be dropped into any web page. In all the Wicket examples, you have to put all files in the same package directory. This means putting the markup files and the java files next to one another. It is possible to alter this behavior, but that is beyond the scope of this example. The only exception is the obligatory web.xml file which should reside in the WEB-INF/ directory of your web application root folder. The link in the navigation to the current page is automatically turned into italic text to indicate to the user what page they are on. When you click on the Page2 link, you get the following screen. As you can see, Page1 has no special style anymore, and Page2 is now displayed in italics. To create a reusable navigation component we are going to use a org.apache.wicket.markup.html.border.Border component. Border markup Border usage Rendered markup Page1.html

SQL Server Service Broker: how to determine overhead or max performance How to make Google index AJAX content (with Django) - Pornark IBM doesn't care about node.js people - blog I've been working with and contributing to the node.js community since 2009. I've authored a lot of modules, I've help recruit a lot of good people into the community, and I'm fortunate enough to have regular communication with all the core members. I remember when node's FS module required three nested asynchronous calls with insane arguments to actually read or write a file. For all of these reasons I list above, I become considerably disappointed when I see an article like this appear on IBM Developer Networks. Normally if I encounted such an unresearched and misleading article on the internet I'd just ignore it. A major recurring theme I noticed in the article was a complete lack of mentioning any node.js module authors, any github repos, or anything about npm and the npm module repository. node.js was built on Github. Early in the article I found this line explaining how node.js works internally: "...node solves the problem by changing how a connection is made to the server. Ahh!

best practices - How did you find the slow performance in your application The Official web2py Book Ajax While web2py is mainly for server-side development, the welcome scaffolding app comes with the base jQuery library[jquery], jQuery calendars (date picker, datetime picker and clock), and some additional JavaScript functions based on jQuery. Nothing in web2py prevents you from using other Ajax libraries such as Prototype, ExtJS, or YUI, but we decided to package jQuery because we find it to be easier to use and more powerful than other equivalent libraries. We also find that it captures the web2py spirit of being functional and concise. web2py_ajax.html The scaffolding web2py application "welcome" includes a file called views/web2py_ajax.html which looks like this: This file is included in the HEAD of the default "layout.html" and it provides the following services: "web2py.js" does the following: It also includes popup, collapse, and fade functions for backward compatibility. Here is an example of how the other effects play well together. Consider a test app with the following model: effects

Service Broker Message Forwarding Service Broker message forwarding allows an instance of SQL Server to accept messages from outside the instance and send those messages to a different instance. An administrator can use message forwarding to: Provide connectivity between servers in different trust domainsSimplify administration by creating a single centralized instance that holds the routing information for a domainDistribute work among several instances When forwarding is enabled, the routing table in msdb.sys.routes determines whether a message that arrives from another instance is forwarded. Each Service Broker message contains a maximum lifetime and a count of the number of times that the message has been forwarded. An instance that forwards a message does not acknowledge the message to the sender. The management view sys.dm_broker_forwarded_messages contains information about messages that are currently in the process of being forwarded by the instance.
