How microeconomics help boost application performance, Part II

In my last post, I talked about how I keep my approach to application performance simple – I use my one semester’s worth of microeconomics knowledge to continuously evaluate the supply and demand sides of my application architecture. What can go wrong, right? 🙂 One of the points we’ll explore further in this post is that supply shouldn’t be viewed simply as… read more

What’s interesting is that that… read more

Top DevOps Tools We Love

The word DevOps is a portmanteau of “development” and “operations”. However, anyone who knows “The Phoenix Project” by Gene Kim et al. will agree that its radius is much wider than what the term suggests: it’s a melting pot that combines principles from Agile Software Development and Lean Manufacturing with the aim to reduce friction and improve collaboration by honing a culture of… read more

Network in the Cloud is No Free Lunch

If you have your applications running on AWS or a similar cloud-based solution, you’ve effectively “outsourced” your networking to the cloud as well. Of course, this can be of great value. Most significantly because it frees you from maintaining physical network infrastructure. Not having physical access to your network doesn’t, however, mean that you’re free from taking care of your network. Let’s see why you need network monitoring in… read more
