I am fascinated by virtualization technology in general and have invested a lot of my time learning about the VMware ecosystem in particular. I am very proud of my home lab. And now I'm starting to wonder if I should get rid of all of it and focus on cloud based infrastructure.
I want to supplement the processing, storage and network capacity of my home lab, but I'm not eager to make additional investments in hardware. I started to look at Amazon Web Services and was blown away. The array of resources is dazzling and the pricing structure makes sense.
I have been using Amazon Glacier to archive all of my data. I'm ready to start learning about cloud servers and networking using Amazon Web Services EC2 and VPC technology.
I was starting to read the relevant AWS documentation and was really impressed. Just when I put down those things, this article came to my attention.
My next series of projects will be about extending my home lab into the cloud.
