1. We’ll Miss You, Harry Weller, Our Partner, Mentor, & Friend

    Harry Weller, General Partner leading NEA’s east coast venture practice, passed away unexpectedly on November 19, 2016. We reflect on his powerful presence in our lives. He looked into this world and bypassed the routine—working fiercely, shaping vivid insights, sharing a smart magic, driving others forward emphatically and lifting them up generously. He knew that noise was just noise and broke past it. He had the rare wisdom that an explorer finds and shares. Our profound sympathy and love go out to Harry’s family and friends.

  2. The Next-Generation Cloud CMDB: Ludwig Code

    A CMDB for APIs is a crucial aspect of Fugue, and one area where running your operations with Fugue offers a lot of value to you. Fugue's CMDB is an effect of our declarative model for configuration, built around our typesafe, compiled Ludwig language. Once it is run as a process in Fugue, that declaration is made real and immutable with machine precision.

  3. Why We Built Ludwig — a DSL for the Cloud of Today and the Future

    Fugue uses a new domain-specific language, Ludwig, to describe infrastructure configuration. Before we started building, we looked around for what we wanted, but didn't find it all in one place. We want typical things you do in cloud to be easy, and not feel like programming. We want users to get great error messages, fast. We want a program that compiles to almost always work in the cloud. We want sophisticated work to be possible, but safe, predictable, and shareable.

  4. Fugue Emerges to Solve Complexity of Operating at Scale in the Cloud

    Fugue announces the availability of its cloud-native solution for fully automating the deployment, operations, and enforcement of cloud infrastructure at scale. We're also introducing our leadership team! Check out our latest blogs, our new website, and learn about Fugue at the AWS Summit in New York on Thursday, August 11. Come by Booth 254, talk with our representatives, and get a firsthand look at how we can help you radically simplify cloud infrastructure complexity.

  5. Fugue Computing: Next Generation Infrastructure Automation Is Here

    The elastic compute systems of any given enterprise are now distributed across tens, hundreds, thousands or more physical nodes running an ever-growing array of cloud services, but there is no central coordinating function to act as a nexus for control and trust. In the midst of this unwieldy reality is an even more compelling reality—that the cloud is not, in fact, merely a collection of infrastructure. It’s the world’s first global computer. And, just as we abstracted the hardware of individual computers decades ago, we can abstract the distributed hardware of the cloud and radically simplify operations complexity.

  6. See Fugue's Cloud Operating System in Action at the AWS Summit Santa Clara

    Our team is showcasing Fugue's cloud operating system at the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Summit in Santa Clara, CA, today, July 13. Come by booth 420 to talk with our representatives and get a firsthand look at how we can help you radically simplify cloud infrastructure complexity. Last month at the D.C. Summit, Fugue CEO Josh Stella spoke on immutable infrastructure to a packed house—standing room only. Check out that video here!

  7. Fugue Extends Value of AWS Cloud, Kicks off Summer AWS Summit Tour

    Washington, DC – June 20, 2016 – Fugue Inc., a venture-backed software startup developing a system for continuously and automatically building, optimizing, and enforcing cloud infrastructure, has announced that CEO Josh Stella will be speaking at the AWS Public Sector Summit in Washington, D.C., on June 20-21, 2016. The team will be demonstrating Fugue's cloud operating system at booth 1008.

  8. Computing Cryptographic Hashes for Cyclic Dependencies

    Implementation of cryptographic hashes is theoretically not that hard, given a good cryptographic library. However, things get trickier when we want to allow dependency cycles. At that point, we get a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem. We need resource A’s hash to compute resource B’s hash, but that in turn depends on B’s hash again! Let's study the problem and solve it.

  9. Architecting a Serverless Web Application in AWS

    For some time, we’ve been using AWS Lambda with SNS topics and votebots, but we hadn’t tried anything big with it. Until now. The Serverless framework gave us the push we needed. Our goal? To power an application useful to a business function via an API built with AWS Lambda and API Gateway, harming no EC2 instances in the process.
