Apache and Nginx are two of the most popular web servers in the open source community. between them, they are responsible for serving over half of the traffic on the internet. Both services have Pros and Cons that need to be taken into account when working out which solution to implement. This article explains how you can use apache2buddy to help tune your Apache2 installation when your dealing with large web applications or large volumes of traffic.
I’m pleased to announce that Idea 11 is one of the first Public Cloud Specialised partners for Palo Alto Networks in Australia, and the first in Queensland.
Meeting the requirements of this designation demonstrates our commitment to delivering Palo Alto Networks solutions on the AWS platform, and we’re excited to share this designation of our capability and experience.
Here at Idea 11 we work with our customers to deploy Amazon WorkSpaces. A lot of WorkSpaces.
In an enterprise, one annoying aspect of the client is the Registration Code. This code is used to tell the WorkSpace client where to connect.
Now obviously just telling the end users to enter this code isn’t the most seamless user experience we could want and usually results in a few helpdesk calls.
So this is how you can configure this code automatically for your end users.
What a year 2017 was. In addition to our AWS Rising Star Partner of the Year award, we were honoured to receive additional awards placings – the Australian Financial Review Fast 100, CRN Fast 50 and Deloitte APAC Fast 500.
Each of these awards is measured differently, but all are based on business growth. The AFR Fast 100 (formerly known as the BRW Fast 100) is measured on three year average growth rate, the CRN Fast 50 is measured on single year growth rate, and the Deloitte APAC Fast 500 is three year cumulative growth rate.
We’re ecstatic to be recognised publicly for what we’re doing. Ultimately, this is a byproduct of what we aim to do – excellent work for our customers, every day.
What is Amazon AppStream 2.0?
Appstream 2.0 is Amazon Web Services’ latest fully managed service that allows anyone to securely stream windows applications directly to a compatible HTML5 web browser. Previously only available in limited regions world-wide, it’s now available for deployment in Sydney.
What problems does AppStream solve?
You’re a software vendor:
- You’re a software vendor wanting to break into the Software-as-a-Service landscape, but have a heavy GUI client based application. SaaS apps where primary delivery is by Windows Forms or some other technology that is not able to be delivered via web browser. Reduce time to market rather than re-writing your software to be web browser friendly.
- Simplify environment management to just your application rather than the complete operating environment.
- Looking for an additional revenue stream hosting your application, instead of having customers install in their own environments.
AWS Cognito is a fantastic product that handles everything to do with your app’s users, so you don’t have to. You don’t have to think about authentication, user profiles, user management, or ensuring that passwords are handled properly. AWS Cognito also handles federation with other systems.
I was asked a question recently;
I’ve used the Serverless framework to create a small app to support internal business functions. It’s a private application and we’re using AWS Cognito to secure it, but we need to use our Office365 logins. Is it possible to set this up?
In this post, we look at implementing AWS Cognito with federation against Office365. I’m assuming that you are already using API Gateway, AWS Lambda and AWS Cognito to provide login functionality. It’s not immediately obvious to federate Cognito with Office365, so I thought it would be good to put together a short tutorial.
Let’s get started!
It’s been an exciting time with a whole stack of new features coming out of the 2017 Amazon re:Invent conference. Today I thought I’d focus on one of the newly released Machine Learning services, which really excites me – Amazon Comprehend. It’s a powerful tool to help facilitate your decisions and understanding.
The AWS Website describes it like this:
Amazon Comprehend is a natural language processing (NLP) service that uses machine learning to find insights and relationships in text. Amazon Comprehend identifies the language of the text; extracts key phrases, places, people, brands, or events; understands how positive or negative the text is; and automatically organizes a collection of text files by topic.
Essentially what it means is that you can feed Amazon Comprehend qualitative data for processing. For example, Online Store reviews, Customer Surveys, to perform an analysis and understanding at scale!
While our award winning TechOps team has been focussed on delivering dedicated support and expert advice to our customers, we have quietly outgrown the space in our current office.
So we’re excited to announce that Idea 11 is expanding and we’ve locked in some more space right next door to our existing office @ Brisbane Technology Park.
Every year over 950 Australian children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer. Every week nearly three Australian children and adolescents die of cancer. We think this is a tragedy. Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia has made great strides in medical research and their aim is to put an end to childhood cancer.
Organisations constantly produce information and data at a rate like never before. This data can unlock secrets in your business which in turn can help you make intelligent decisions.
Previously, it’s been very difficult because of the availability of compute and storage constraints. Big Data is a large volume of structured and unstructured data that can be analysed for insights. We use an analogy to help describe Big Data and the process of data gathering to clients.
We call it the ‘Data Spider’.
