Fitting the modular Mirage TCP/IP stack together

A critical part of any unikernel is its network stack -- it's difficult to think of a project that needs a cloud platform or runs on a set-top box with no network communications. Mirage provides a number of module types that abstract interfaces at different layers of the network stack, allowing unikernels to customise their own stack based on their deployment needs. Depending on the abstractions your unikernel uses, you can fulfill these abstract interfaces with implementations ranging from the venerable and much-imitated Unix sockets API to a clean-slate Mirage TCP/IP stack written from the ground up in pure OCaml! A Mirage unikernel will not use...

Google GCE Interface to CloudStack

Gstack, a GCE compatible interface to CloudStack Google Compute Engine (GCE) is the Google public cloud. In december 2013, Google announced the General Availability (GA) of GCE. With AWS and Microsoft Azure, it is one of the three leading public clouds in the market. Apache CloudStack now has a brand new GCE compatible interface (Gstack) that lets users use the GCE clients (i.e gcloud and gcutil) to access their CloudStack cloud. This has been made possible through the Google Summer of Code program. Last summer Ian Duffy, a student from Dublin City University participated in GSoC through the Apache Software Foundation (ASF)...

Setting absolute date based Amazon S3 bucket lifecycles with curl

For my local backup regimen I use flexbackup to create a full backup twice a year and differential/incremental backups on a weekly/monthly basis. I then upload these to a new amazon S3 bucket for each half year (so each bucket corresponds to the a full backup plus the associated differentials and incrementals). I then set the bucket's lifecycle to archive to glacier (cheaper offline storage) from the month after that half year has ended (reducing costs) and to delete it a year after the half ends. It used to be possible to do this via the S3 web interface but the absolute date based options seem to have been...
