Introducing Amazon Web Services’ cloud at eCOMExpo 2015


Last week, the Claranet team joined the 2015 edition of OMExpo & eCOMExpo that took place Madrid, one of the biggest annual meeting points for marketing and e-commerce professionals in Spain. ¿Our mission there? To present the benefits of Amazon Web Services’ cloud.

eCOMExpo 2015

Last 27th and 28th May, Claranet participated in OMExpo & eCOMExpo –a double event dedicated to the marketing and e-commerce industry– promoting Amazon Web Services’ adoption. During those two days of intense work, more than 300 visitors passed by our stand, and around 50 people attended the conference about Amazon Web Services for online shops by Guillem Veiga, Country Manager Iberia of Amazon Web Services.


Distributed apps: Microservices and containers in AWS


We are just some days away from registering to 2015 AWS Re:Invent, so it is the perfect timing to rescue one of the most commented concepts of the past edition, which is just really the trend right now (and we are sure it is going to define the forthcoming years paradigm): microservices as a deployment method for distributed apps in the cloud.

When we talk about microservices we mean splitting the application components so the service we provide is a result of the cooperation between smaller applications with a clear defined purpose.

Amazon EC2 Container Service


Docker and the era of the container


Since the EC2 Container Service  was introduced at AWS Re:invent 2014, both the service itself, and container technology in general, have been causing a bit of a stir. Docker is the word on everyone’s lips (even Microsoft’s) and the overall consensus for 2015 seems to be that containers have arrived and they’re here to stay.


Container virtualization technology, also known as operating-system-level virtualization, is nothing new. Support for this technology has been available for years, practically since its beginnings in the form of chroot or jails in FreeBSD.
