As you can tell from my past few posts I'm looking for companies that are changing the world and this is one: http://2600hz.com which is a new platform for telecom services. Here the execs show me around their offices and give me a taste of what they do.
Even if you're not a telecom geek but you like tech, we're throwing this event. I think you'll like it. You should come :-)
And seriously, the list of CTOs lined up is pretty stellar. Vocalocity, PacWest, bandwidth.com's former CTO, FireSpotter labs, etc. You should consider it seriously.
Why not build a Facebook-style interface that focuses on how to get people within a company to share their work more seamlessly - could be updates from your NOC mixed with revisions to your project plan mixed with meeting reminders.
It's very well done. I'm impressed. I don't usually jump on new technology this quickly but here I am, signing up...
Process was damn smooth--basically just shut down three nodes (due to BigCouch's quorum system you want a minimum of three nodes in a cluster) and nuked Couchbase and all the data, installed BigCouch, clustered those three nodes, and then did one-off replication for each of the database from one of the still-live Couchbase servers to one of the members of the new BigCouch cluster.
Once the replication finished and I verified the document counts I shut down the remaining three Couchbase servers, nuked Couchbase on those, installed BigCouch, and added them to the BigCouch cluster.
Pretty amazing I could completely change my underlying infrastructure like this with no down time and do the whole thing in an evening with the bulk of the time spent just babysitting to make sure replication didn't show any write fails. Installing BigCouch was literally three commands in a terminal.
This is pretty basic stuff but I'll probably blog it all for posterity while it's fresh in my mind. I also wrote up what I think is a pretty definitive guide to Couch security which is still something that throws a lot of people, so I'll share that as well.
Still unbelievably happy with Couch overall and having a single BigCouch cluster instead of having to manage 6 single instances clustered behind a load balancer with continuous replication going (cool as that stuff is) is going to make life a lot easier.
These new phones are revolutionary for business and call centers. Shows all sorts of stuff when people call.
Yet another example of how Android is taking over stuff that Windows used to be used for.
