So you're thinking about going serverless: Don't assume it's magically faster and cheaper - AWS especially has variable costing that is difficult to predict before the time


"Deployment time went down by 20 per cent or so, but he was disappointed to find performance around 15 per cent slower than before. The shocker, though, was the cost. His app receives around 10 million requests per day. On Elastic Beanstalk, the cost was around $164 per month. On Lambda and API Gateway, it was going to be around $1,350 per month, had he not spotted the mounting bill and reverted."

Obviously, all cases are different depending on what you deploy but the more and faster options you choose, the more the cost goes up. I also found that with AWS the costing was complexity tied to the technical configuration and CPU usage and other factors, and I opted to move to Digital Ocean which was more fixed cost packages you choose from. "Scaling and high availability" means elastic costs as well...

Salespeople are quick to point out the benefits but make sure you get proper scenario-based costing with some limits in place otherwise you'll move from apples to very expensive oranges. As the article does point out at the end, one advantage of even expensive cloud services... Show more...

How Much Should Enterprises Worry About Vendor Lock-in in Public Cloud? Not so much with IaaS but SaaS is a different story


It is true that when we bought dedicated hardware in the years before IaaS cloud we were locked into that hardware for a period but any cloud-based Infrasture-As-A-Service offering you sign up for today and could cancel in 6 months with nothing lost as you move to a different provider (you pay only for what you use and when).

However, when subscribing to something more at a software (Software-As-A-Service) level like say Office 365 when you end that subscription you have just your documents but no more application to read or edit them. Office 365 does not include perpetual use of a desktop client version of the software. The same goes for Adobe Cloud. An obvious answer may be to rather save everything in open data formats like ODF, PDF, etc but most people do not do this and often this cloud-based software does not support those formats properly (for good reason,m why would they want you to be able to en your service with them?).

You could achieve similar results though by using something like Nextcloud (or Dropbox/GDRive) to sync and share documents created using free... Show more...

The #Earth might not be here #forever. A huge #solar #flare, an #asteroid #impact, or a #local #gamma-ray #burst - anything could wipe us out for #good. If we're looking for someplace to #escape to, there is one #planet in our #SolarSystem that is somewhat #similar to Earth, though we don't know much about it. It might even be #hosting some #microbial #life. No, it's not #Mars - it's #Venus.

Ich hatte letztes Wochenende ein schreckliches Erlebnis. Ich war bei meiner kleinen Cousine. Sie träumt davon YouTube-Star und Influencerin zu werden. Natürlich hat sie ein #iPhone und filmt damit alles was ihr vor die Linse kommt. Auf ihrem Laptop hat sie aber Windows 10 drauf. Wahrscheinlich ist so ein Apple Laptop zu teuer für sie. Um diesen Windows-Laptop durfte ich mich kümmern weil der wegen schlechter Wartung, mal wieder viel zu langsam geworden war. Ich säuberte also ihren #Laptop von unnötigen Programmen und defragmentierte ihre Festplatte. Wenn man bei #Windows 10 auf den Windows-Knopf unten links in der Taskleiste klickt geht so e...

Perils of Cloud Services - This weekend you better read those ebooks you bought from Microsoft – because they'll be dead come next week


If you bought an ebook through Microsoft's online store, now's the time to give it a read, or reread, because it will stop working early July.

That's right, the books you paid for will be literally removed from your electronic bookshelf because, um, Microsoft decided in April it no longer wanted to sell books. It will turn off the servers that check whether your copy was bought legitimately – using the usual anti-piracy digital-rights-management (DRM) tech – and that means your book can't be verified as being in the hands of its purchaser, and so won't be displayed.

This is the downside of most cloud services... if/when the cloud provider sells up or changes focus or shuts down you have zero control over the service and often the information too. In many cases, you won't have a working application to use the information. Be wary of the sales hype and be sure to keep to using open data standards and plan for exiting the cloud service.

So wurde die Zentralisierung von Angeboten und Nutzungsweisen im Internet weiter forciert und fortgesetzt.




Das Internet baut grundsätzlich auf Dezentralisierung auf.
Mit gutem Grund.
Fällt eine Einheit aus, fangen alle anderen intakten Einheiten den Ausfall ab.
Das ist praktisch und schlau.
Doch es scheint sich nicht besonders herum gesprochen zu haben.

Weder bei den Betreibern noch bei den Nutzern solcher Angebote.

Now cloud photo storage service Shoebox is shutting down May 22... Where will your favourite cloud storage service be in 5 or 7 years?


Before there was Google Photos, there was Shoebox (yes I know there was Picasa Webalbums but remember Google bought them and then shut them down). The app offered strikingly similar features, including automatic online backup of your photos and cross-platform access and sharing. Now, the service is shutting down. Users are no longer able to upload photos or videos, and media not exported by May 22 will be lost.

So we get announcements now almost every week or two about some cloud service being shut down. Many had become obscure and die without much notice being taken, but for many they have built up memories, journals, blogs, etc and invested a lot of time creating what they have done. Really if you want your memories to survive you need to print them out (and keep them in a real shoebox) or host it yourself (without forgetting to back them up).

In the digital era we are creating vastly bigger amounts of memories online but my biggest fear is that in 100 or 200 years we'll have to less to show from it than we have on paper from the 1800's today...

How to Unlink Dropbox Devices to Meet the New Limits for Free Users - Free users only get three devices now


Dropbox just did a crappy thing to its “Basic” users — free users, that is. The company quietly added a new caveat that limits these accounts to a mere three devices. To use your Dropbox account on four or more devices, you must pay for the service’s premium version, which will cost you at least $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year.

If you already had a free Dropbox Account before the switch, there’s good news and bad news. Dropbox won’t deactivate any devices if you exceed this new limit. So, if you have 10 devices synced to one free Dropbox account, they will all continue to work.

However, users who have more than three devices attached to their accounts will not be able to sync any new hardware until they unlink all but two of their devices to comply with the new limit.

Noticed how many cloud services are dropping offerings on their free tiers (ie. like Flickr) so it may be well worth your while considering alternative services that you can host your self without restrictions and often for much less. Like free open source alte... Show more...
