Introducing the Paremus Service Fabric

This post is the first of a series of videos that will introduce and explore the capabilities of the Paremus Service Fabric; a distributed, highly modular, self-managing OSGi based platform.

This first episode demonstrates the creation of a Service Fabric in the Digital Ocean public Cloud environment. Having created a Service Fabric – we then review the Fabric’s management capabilities and deploy a simple example of a modular microservice based application.

Reality is Wondrously Complex

From the atoms in my coffee (Mmmm Union Roast – actually now my Harveys Elizabethan Ale ? — typos courtesy of the latter) to the interactions of individuals that collectively define the earths eco-system, and on a smaller scale human societies; reality is wondrously complex. To cope with this we create abstractions. The abstractions we create, and an understanding of the dependencies between these abstractions allow us – to some degree – make sense of reality. In some quite old posts (2008 no less! (more…)

We are in Amsterdam at Structure Europe 2012 this week and Richard Nicholson, our Founder and CEO, took part in a lively panel discussion earlier today on The Evolution of Private PaaS Solutions.

The other panel members included: Bart Copeland – CEO, ActiveState, Ruben Daniels – Co-Founder and CEO, Cloud9 IDE and Johan den Haan – CTO, Mendix.

GigaOM have recorded the whole Structure Europe event and Richards panel session can be found in the following GigaOM blog post.

The recording of the panel is well worth a watch. There is lots of interaction, views and opinions from all of the panelists.

Hope to see you at OSGi Community Event in Ludwigsburg next week.


Structure 2012

Our founder and CEO, Richard Nicholson, will be at Structure 2012 in San Francisco this week (20-21 June) participating in a panel discussing “The gap between applications and infrastructure” along with Luke Kanies (CEO, Puppet Labs), Stephanie Tayengco (VP of Network Operations and Engineering, Logicworks) and James Urquhart (VP of Product Strategy, enStratus).

Abstract: Everything we do in the cloud is about supporting the delivery of your application. Between the application and the big iron that powers it, there is a layer of management and software that orchestrates magic. This panel brings together differing viewpoints about application and infrastructure management, the gaps in between, and why now more than ever you should be paying attention to the different approaches and their impacts on your organization.

If you are attending Structure this week be sure to look up Richard and listen in to the panel discussion.
