  1. Get Your Cloud, See Your Cloud—A Full View with Fugue

    Fugue's new Composer maps your application’s cloud infrastructure with automated, interactive diagrams that show your whole system in real time and the relationships between system components. You can zoom and inspect. You can quickly discover configuration errors and compliance violations. It's introduced with Fugue’s Transcriber—your tool to scan existing AWS cloud services in an account and automate their translation for easy Composer mapping. It doesn’t matter how you stood those services up. You'll see everything with Fugue. The new features are in beta and they're free.

  2. A Holiday Season Kickoff at AWS re:Invent 2016 — Gifts From the Cloud

    We’re a couple of weeks out of re:Invent and its dizzying buzz—the slew of service and feature announcements, the industry tracks and community meetings, the Mini Cons, the integration and how-to session deep dives, the intensive networking, the mall of sponsors with every manner of product presentation … even festive bling from the ever-present registration DJ. We’ve had some time to digest it all and think about a few of the more compelling offerings. Let’s zero in on a handful of this year's provocative developments.

  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 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.

  5. 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.

  6. AWS Lambda and the Evolution of the Cloud

    Lambda is the first service offering to illustrate that the cloud is a global, general-purpose computer with a particular architecture. You gain near infinite scalability and very low cost compared to compute instances or containers.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Why AWS re:Invent 2013 Mattered

    The level of energy and excitement at re:Invent was something none of us had experienced at a software conference before. There are likely many reasons for this, but we primarily attribute it to the fact that AWS has established itself as the undisputed front-runner in cloud with significant momentum among developers and ISVs.

  12. Your Beautiful Baby VPC on AWS: Part 1

    Most of the features of Amazon Web Services (AWS) are low risk in terms of changing your mind later. However, one place on the AWS platform where you really need to get things right from the start is in your Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) design.

  13. Immutable Infrastructure: Networks

    If you work with network infrastructure, you know that it has a tendency to drift away from its original configuration, or "grow warts." There are many tools that attempt to solve this problem. Fugue brings automation and control of networks one step further by ensuring networks remain in the state intended when they were deployed.
