1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. The Problem With Early Standardization

    When a new technology that has broad relevance arrives, it tends to develop along a lifecycle that is more or less similar to that of other innovations over time. It may or may not follow the diffusion of innovation, dependent on market adoption of the technology. Understanding this lifecycle is a prerequisite for knowing when and how to apply standards successfully.

  4. Cybersecurity's New Frontier

    The exterior walls of Luminal’s downtown Frederick headquarters are made of brick. But the company isn’t focused on walls. Its software aims to make a computer system more secure from the inside, instead of relying only on exterior defenses.

  5. Announcing our $3.8MM Series A

    We’re excited to announce that Luminal has closed a $3.8MM Series A financing round with Core Capital Partners, Maryland Venture Fund, New Enterprise Associates, and other investors. The round includes the conversion of $1.1MM in convertible debt the company raised in August 2012.

  6. Why We're Porting To Python 3

    We knew Python was the right choice, but we had lingering doubts about our decision to continue avoiding Python 3. After taking a closer look, we found that things had changed drastically since the last time we'd seriously considered this question, and the scale was no longer decidedly tipped against Python 3.
