Vincent Bernat has a really in-depth article on IPv4 route lookup on Linux (and one on IPv6 route lookup as well). and their product (VirTool Network Analyzer) is aimed at providing some operational visibility into OpenStack virtual networks. I saw a demo of the product—it looks quite handy, and provides a pretty fair amount of information to help operators figure out what’s happening “under the covers.” Operating Systems/Applications.

Expanding the Cloud - Amazon S3 Reduced Redundancy Storage.

All Things Distributed

Werner Vogels weblog on building scalable and robust distributed systems. Four years later it stores over 100 billion objects and routinely performs well over 120,000 storage operations per second. Under the covers Amazon S3 is a marvel of distributed systems technologies. It is the ultimate incrementally scalable system; simply by adding resources it can handle scaling needs in storage and performance dimensions. All Things Distributed.
