We're always fascinated by the potential of IoT to create smarter and frankly downright cooler cities to live in!
“Smart city” is a term we are going to be hearing a lot more of in the coming years. It’s thought that by 2020 we will be spending $400 billion a year building

How CEOs Should Lead To Strengthen Legacy http://buff.ly/1BdBo7p
It was late at night and I was still working. I was tired, it had been a long day, and I was overwhelmed. I parachuted in on my developer to make sure he was working efficiently.

My brevity probably came across a little too strong.

People often ask me, why don't you just use OpenStack? Why does +CloudSigma waste it's time with it's own stack? Well, we actually get a lot more done and have awesome & unique features. We're reactive to customer feedback and more. Here's a great talk on why +OpenStack isn't the cloud nirvana many may have hoped.

There are a lot of ways to optimize your cloud servers. Here's a guide to tweaking performance:
One of the great features about CloudSigma is the ability to choose optimized server settings that work great right out-of-the-box. At server creation time, if you aren’t using the quick server create tool, you’ll find under the Properties tab an “Optimize for” option. This allows you to tweak your server for Linux, Windows, BSD or even Solaris. In this blog ... Read More

Manage Docker resources with cgroups
Last month I spoke at ApacheCon about Cgroups. It appears as very few Linux users (including yours truly until not too long ago) are familiar with Cgroups and their power.
