When you are running out of space on your server

an easy way to extend your disc space on VM

…in most cases you have 2 options. Because we are living in Cloud and VPS era – it’s not a big deal. You can always bump up your volume and after while you can enjoy bigger more expensive instance with more space. But sometimes you need just a space for a while or… just something for a backup ? You can always use s3cmd , gsutil or another tool. Imagine that you have just regular folder on your drive, with almost unlimited space.

Why AWS is better than Rackspace

Why AWS is better than Rackspace

I’m huge fan fan ow AWS services. It just works – don’t need any kind of support, prices are really good. No issues whatsoever. But – of course my nature ask me to check out other options. For example Rackspace . So I registered account, filled out my business and credit details. Just to give a small background – got registered business since 2011 in Australia. I filled out my CC details, phone number and so on. Pretty standard process. I logged in, and start playing with their interface (pretty slow, but I shouldn’t complain yet). The best is about to come…

Why I don’t recommend mailgun…

Couple months ago I listed services having API for sending and receiving emails . One of them was mailgun – I was using it for a while since… yesterday. My account was locked without any valid reason. Something related with SPAM: http://documentation.mailgun.com/razor.html Reference: #rzr01. Because I know exactly what emails are being sent using my accounts (I keep track of each email coming out from the system) I was really interested how it could happen.
Amazon AWS finally in Australia

Amazon AWS finally in Australia

Finally we can enjoy power and speed of Amazon AWS services, in Australia but… so far we can’t get full experience, it’s only for two services – Amazon Route 53 and Amazon CloudFront . So… in simple words we can enjoy with 100% SLA DNS service and global CDN with edge location based on Sydney.
