Alibaba Cloud OSS, More Than Just Storage

Software Engineering

When we talk about storage we often think about hard drives, USB sticks and devices of the kind. All those solutions are okay for personal computers (and even for servers to store the basic Operating System data) but, when it comes to scaling, we need something better. The main problem of using volumes in HDD […]

Using Alibaba Cloud DevOps Flow to automate an ECS Deployment

Software Engineering

Called just “Flow“, this is the long-awaited DevOps tool from Alibaba Cloud. Until now, this cloud provider didn’t have any CI/CD platform to help developers automate pipelines.

Migrate a WordPress site from Alibaba Cloud SAS to ECS

Software Engineering

Terms like “Cloud Computing“, “Cloud Server“, “Virtual Machine” or “Database” could be daunting for someone who is just starting. This is why I completely understand the people who are having a hard time deciding whether or not create a blog or e-commerce site. Even if you’re not an IT expert and have never created a cloud […]

Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch Tutorial & Optimisation

Software Engineering

Alibaba Cloud’s Elasticsearch Service has come a long way from when it was first introduced, and I believe it is ready for most production workloads. It wipes out most of the pain of operating Elasticsearch all by yourself, and letting you to focus on your application or business. Note that, if you’ve never set up […]

Using Serverless Devs to run a “Hello World” with Alibaba Cloud

Software Engineering

As you know, I’ve been talking and developing production-ready solutions in a Serverless fashion since 2018, which sounds “forever” in this IT world. In the beginning, I used the amazing tool called fun developed by Alibaba to deploy them, and this made my life easier since then. Apparently, Alibaba deprecated fun in favour of another tool called […]

Upgrading my MTBs rear disc from 160 mm to 203 mm

Aprendiendo Tailandés


Dados los pocos lugares donde se puede estudiar el idioma tailandés desde un punto de vista hispanohablante, he decidido crear mi propio material para aprender este idioma desde España. No pretendo que sea perfecto, pero a mí me sirve, ya que aglutino en un sólo sitio información que, de otra manera, tendría que consultar en varias […]

Host-based routing with Alibaba Cloud Kubernetes (ACK)

Software Engineering

When creating a multi-deployment platform in Kubernetes, you will quickly realise how many LoadBalancer-type Services you deployed. This is usually not a problem with a self-built, self-hosted Cluster, as you manage how things gets created. The problem appears when you use managed Kubernetes solutions like Alibaba Cloud ACK, as it will create an SLB (Server […]

Testing the Alibaba Cloud Elastic Desktop Service (EDS)

Software Engineering

Thanks to being an MVP Diamond I became one of the first to test this VDI product called EDS back in February. I was such an early adopter that at the beginning I couldn’t even write a post about this, as I first needed to help Alibaba Cloud’s EDS Product Developer to test several points of […]
