Most EC2 instances are not intended to be publicly accessible, being assigned private IP addresses valid only within a specific virtual private cloud. However, sometimes an EC2 instance needs to be accessible to the public, like a web front end that needs to be accessible via the Internet. AWS makes this possible through the use of elastic IP addresses, and here Brien Posey shows you how to do it..
Cloud application monitoring specialist Datadog published a report on AWS Lambda, the cloud giant's serverless computing platform, finding it's enjoying tremendous popularity among AWS users, especially those who are also using containers.
While the AWS lead is huge, reports indicate the cloud giant's growth rate roughly matches the industry average while several competitors are outpacing it, but they have a long way to go to usurp the champion. In the meantime, they have to settle for bigger pieces of an exploding pie.
