Frameworks Round 2

TechEmpower

On Tuesday of this week, we kicked off a pair of EC2 instances and a pair of our i7 workstations to produce updated data. We dive right in with the EC2 JSON test results, but please read to the end where we include important notes about what has changed since last week.

Framework Benchmarks

Authors Note: Were using the word "framework" loosely to refer to platforms, micro-frameworks, and full-stack frameworks. This is an EC2 test run on a pair of Large instances. We ran each test on EC2 and our i7 hardware. Starting again with EC2.

Choosing Internet Platforms

SoCal CTO

The topic is: Betting Your Company On An Internet Platform? Especially when there are things like: Amazon S3 / EC2 / AWS outage this morning. However, these platforms could be interesting for prototype and pilot solutions. The other conclusion was that you need to have a migration path from the platform.
