Recently I started working on an assignment, where the client wanted to use Huawei cloud as their primary cloud service provider.

Being relatively new in the market, Huawei Cloud has a good number of services to offer

Here I’ve created a list of all services offered by Huawei cloud and tried to compare them with similar services offered by AWS.

This list can be handy for people who are from AWS background and trying to build solutions on Huawei Cloud.

PS: As of today Huawei cloud only offer enterprise level subscription from India, so to deep dive into each of these services as an individual, we will have to wait for some more time…..

Thank you

Elasticbeanstalk environment can go down due to multiple causes, here are few instances, which I faced, and the steps I followed to resolve the issues.

Ran out of diskspace — Not able ssh to EB to find the issues, even the logs were not listing anything

Sol:

  • Increase the EBS root-volume to 50 GB(or as per the requirement)
  • Terminate EB instances
  • ASG will launch the new instances with increase root volume size.

IPv6 issuesNot able ssh to EB instances to find the issues, even the logs were not listing anything

Sol:

  • Disabled ipv6 on vpc
  • Terminate eb instances
  • ASG will launch the new instances with increase root volume size.
