How Wayin does Cloud Orchestration

I've already mentioned this on Twitter and LinkedIn, but just in case you missed it: I'll be speaking tomorrow night at the Triangle AWS and Triangle DevOps joint meetup at Argyle Social in Durham, NC. I'll give a quick overview of cloud orchestration and Wayin Hub. Then I'll dive into the details of how we automate deployment, scaling and backups for Wayin Hub using AWS and AWS Cloud Formation.

As a little teaser, here's a GIF animation of my automated deployment slide:

Scott McNealy's Wayin weighs in on the election

Nice coverage of Wayin in CNN Money:

Scott McNealy's Wayin weighs in on the election - Fortune Tech: Nearly 30 years after he co-founded Sun, and two years after the company sold to Oracle (ORCL), one of the tech industry's most outspoken and colorful executives is back. Only instead of selling servers and software to businesses, he's trying to get consumers, sports teams, and corporations -- and politicians -- to embrace a social media tool that's a little hard to define: It is part polling app, part interactive media tool (think Twitter), and part enterprise service.

The polling software at the heart of Wayin is super easy to use. It allows you to create basic questionnaires, on the web or using a mobile app, by selecting an image and asking a question. Pick a photo of the Fab Four, ask Who is your favorite Beatle?, and bingo, the answers from your followers will start trickling in immediately.
