1. Immutable Infrastructure Realized: Fugue Computing

    We at Luminal are launching our new vision for computing: Fugue. Fugue embodies a set of core computing patterns that rely upon automating the creation and operations of cloud infrastructure, short-lived compute instances, and simplification of compute instances.

  2. What's A Fugue?

    We thought it would be fun to have our friends, music professors Laura Renninger and Shaun Amos, answer that for us in this short video blog about the fugue in music. Enjoy!

  3. #Pipeday: The 50th Anniversary of |

    At Luminal, we're unabashed fans of Unix and the Unix Philosophy. Last year, we marked the 49th anniversary of the Unix pipe (|) and we'd be remiss not to mark this year's golden date. We thought it would be fun to turn it over to members of our growing team to find out what the | means to them.

  4. A Future of Cloud

    A Future of Cloud wraps up our three part series with a vision of clouds that become dynamic markets, that support ubiquitous movement of compute resources, and that usher in genuine fidelity of systems through native cloud patterns. This series also includes our previous posts, Minimum Viable Cloud and More than the Minimum.

  5. More than the Minimum (C>M)

    Beyond Minimum Viable Cloud (MVC) are metaprogramming capabilities that allow you to compose and orchestrate systems efficiently across compute resources. Those capabilities are the centerpiece of mature cloud implementation.

  6. Minimum Viable Cloud

    Minimum Viable Cloud (MVC) refers to baseline features that cloud providers must offer in order to fully deliver on the promise of cloud. MVC allows developers and users to leverage intrinsic cloud patterns that are emerging and will continue to emerge for years. We explore those here.

  7. Something as a Service

    Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS) definitions enabled us to create generalized categories in the face of messy and irresolvable realities. This is a necessary act for decision-making, but it carries with it the possibility of misreading scope. Continued adoption of the defined buckets rolls on in a manner that doesn't account for other perspectives, ones the taxonomy was never intended to preclude. A limited perception takes hold in the marketplace and in the media, filtering to the general public.
