Noah Zoschke: Minimum Viable Infrastructure (https://nzoschke.github.io/mvi/)
Says Noah: "I'm building Convox, an open-source platform that expertly configures AWS to run and manage any application. In doing this I have discovered a minimal set of 12 cloud infrastructure services that form an architecture that supports any application.
Here I'll introduce the 12 service types that support our secure computing, application workload, and operational needs. I'll show how these services are used together to manage a secure computing cluster that can build Docker images for an app, roll out new images to production with zero downtime, and scale to handle any load.
Finally we'll look at the cloud computing landscape to see how all the cloud providers and software projects compare with offering these 12 service types."
Jeremy Pryzgode: Using the ELK Stack to Audit and Report on AWS Resources
In the dynamic world of the cloud and AWS one must collect metadata from resources that are ephemeral in nature. Learn how Stratalux collects and reports on AWS resources using Elastic’s ELK Stack and SQS. In this talk I will discuss how Stratalux collects AWS cloudtrail, cloudwatch and AWS Config data using AWS’s SQS service into an ELK Stack for auditing and troubleshooting purposes. Learn how Stratalux leverages CloudFormation Templates to configure AWS for this purpose and then report on this information using the ELK Stack.
