Tapp helps you keep high service availability on the cloud
We are proud to announce that starting tomorrow 18th February there will be a new functionality available at Tapp: Disaster Recovery. We have prepared the screencast below to show you what it is all about and how it works, but to sum up, this functionality allows for automatic backup and few-click service restoration of your cloud servers on another provider. For the moment the service will be compatible with Dropbox and Amazon S3 but next week we will be releasing other backup end mechanisms.
How to use Tapp to deploy BigBlueButton multiconference system
As we promised last week, our screencast on how to deploy a videoconference service on the cloud is here. This screencast introduces firewall configuration through Tapp, since BigBlueButton, the chosen videoconference software, needs some ports open besides those for SSH, HTTP and HTTPS (which Tapp opens by default). As you can see Tapp can be very useful for the deployment of advanced and complex server configurations.
For the deployment of the service we have developed a Chef cookbook. We believe in contributing to the open-source community so we have open-sourced our bigbluebutton cookbook and you can find it here.
How to use Tapp to deploy Wordpress Blog in the cloud
We were thinking this week that many people are interested in deploying a blog server on the cloud and are prevented from doing so by the technical knowledge it requires. Tapp eliminates this barrier and we have released this screencast to show you how simple the deployment of wordpress on any of our supported cloud providers can be with Tapp. So please, watch it and if interested in playing with Tapp a bit, sign up into our beta program.
For the next week we are thinking of releasing a more enterprise-oriented screencast featuring a cloud videoconference service deployment.
