    Hands On AWS - Massively Scalable Image Hosting Using S3 and CloudFront - Part 2

    Hands On AWS - Massively Scalable Image Hosting Using S3 and CloudFront - Part 2

    In episode #109 of Mobycast, we started our discussion on how to build a massively scalable image hosting service. We talked about the general architecture and then dove deep on how to handle image uploads.

    But uploading is only half the solution. We also need to allow downloads of the images. Turns out, downloading is a totally different game.

    In this episode of Mobycast, Jon and Chris finish their two-part series on building an image hosting solution. We discuss in detail how to enable downloads of files with the help of CloudFront, a global network of edge locations that makes it easy to achieve massive scale.

    Hands On AWS - Massively Scalable Image Hosting Using S3 and CloudFront - Part 1

    If you are building software apps, at some point you will likely need to build an image hosting service (let's be honest, probably more than once!). Image hosting is a core feature of many apps, and it's important to get right.

    We all know the best practices for building image hosting in the cloud. Start with Amazon S3 for the uploads. Then serve them up with a CDN like CloudFront. Easy, right? Well, as usual, the devil's in the details.

    In this episode of Mobycast, Jon and Chris kick off a two-part series detailing how to build a massively scalable image hosting service. We share hard-won tips and tricks so you can avoid common pitfalls when building your own solution.

    This is the fifth and final episode that we’re re-releasing from back when we told Chris’s personal story of starting Viathan, which was a software startup built to create one of the first internet scale databases. In this episode, we compare Viathan’s pre-cloud architecture to that of DynamoDB. They’re less different than you might expect!

    Replay of Ep 40 - The Birth of NoSQL and DynamoDb – Part 2

    Welcome to Mobycast! This is the second episode that we’re re-releasing from back when we told Chris’s personal story of starting Viathan, which was a software startup built to create one of the first internet scale databases. You’ll get to see how his work in the early 2000’s/late 90’s was instrumental to what later became the databases that we count on today. Anyway, the reason that you should listen to this is not because it’s a fun story but because we’re asking you to trust us here at Mobycast when we tell you what we think is the best way to do distributed systems and cloud-native development, and what better way to learn to trust us than to listen to how Chris got started in this whole world…

Timeless Topics

Many of the episodes should be your go to reference source on easily digestible topics like Docker Tips and Tricks, Database theory, and just Docker and AWS in general.

Awsome content here

I'm listening to a great episode right now. I'm not technically savvy with this sort of stuff... Even still, the conversations are easy & interesting to listen to.

Exceptional podcast on all things DevOps

These 2 guys are the perfect pair. Jon and Chris are great together. Good luck in finding anyone with more knowledge than Chris Hickman. Overall incredible podcast!
