state technologies

State Technologies on behalf of Amazon apprise you about Amazon Lightsail which provides a number of features designed to help make your project quickly come to life. Designed as an all-in-one cloud platform, Lightsail offers you a one-stop-shop for all your cloud needs. Take a look
to see how we can help you get started on the AWS infrastructure.  

Lightsail virtual servers
Lightsail offers virtual servers (instances) that are easy to set up and backed by the power and reliability of AWS. You can launch your website, web application, or project in minutes, and manage your instance from the intuitive Lightsail console or API.

As you’re creating your instance, Lightsail lets you click-to-launch a simple operating system (OS), a pre-configured application, or development stack – such as WordPress, Windows, Plesk, LAMP, Nginx, and more. Every Lightsail instance comes with a built-in firewall allowing you to allow or restrict traffic to your instances based on source IP, port and protocol.
Once your instance is running you can create custom alarms and be notified by email or text message when something is out of the ordinary.

Simplified load balancing

Lightsail’s simplified load balancing routes web traffic across your instances so that your websites and applications can accommodate variations in traffic, be better protected from outages, and deliver a seamless experience to your visitors.
Additionally, Lightsail load balancers include integrated certificate management, providing free SSL/TLS certificates that can be provisioned and added to a load balancer in just a few clicks.
You can request and manage certificates directly from the Lightsail console – and we manage renewals on your behalf.

Managed databases
Launch a fully configured MySQL or PostgreSQL database in minutes and leave the maintenance to Lightsail. With Lightsail managed databases, you can easily scale your databases independently of your virtual servers, improve the availability of your applications, or run standalone databases in the cloud. You can also deploy multi-tiered applications, all within Lightsail, by creating multiple instances that are connected to a central managed database, and a load balancer that directs traffic to the instances.
Lightsail managed database plans bundle together memory, processing, storage, and transfer allowance into a single, predictable monthly price.

Upgrade to EC2
As your cloud ideas expand, you can easily move to EC2 with a simple, guided experience. With this feature, Lightsail offers you the comfort of knowing that as you grow your website or application we can help you scale in a way that fits your needs.Upgrading is simple, you’ll take a snapshot of your instance and follow the step-by-step process in the Lightsail console to export your snapshot to EC2. You can then use the Upgrade to EC2 wizard to get your new EC2 instance up and running.

Access to AWS services

Amazon Lightsail uses a focused set of features like instances, managed databases and load balancers to make it easier to get started. But that doesn’t mean you’re limited to those options –you can integrate your Lightsail project with some of the 90+ other services in AWS through
Amazon VPC peering.

You can manage the services in AWS using the AWS management console, while still keeping
your day-to-day management in the Lightsail console. It’s the best of both worlds!

I will explain why the 24 GB Frame Buffer is a game changer for Memory bound application like Adobe Premiere and Mistika VR. I will compare the Titan RTX with my other graphics card – the Nvidia RTX 2080ti. If you have your eyes on the Titan RTX and looking for an upgrade in 8K stereoscopic VR video post-production. This is the video for you. Let’s dive right in! So the reason for my upgrade, if you follow my Instagram or facebook post, is I hit some kind of bottleneck on my 8K editing pipeline. I can’t deliver cut on time to the clients which lead to angry producer and angry clients. 8K editing and effects in Adobe Premiere,After Effects or blender eats a ton of memory b/c it’s all cuda accelerated playback it happens to fall on the GPU. So there are times where lots of immersive video filters or effects on my timeline, I’ll hit maximum memory allowance on the RTX card 11 gigabytes. To make thing worst, with third-party over clocking RTX will crash your system when you run out of frame buffer, which is the last thing you want. Titan RTX is NOT for everyone tho. If you are a VR gamer using the latest Oculus Rift S – you are not gonna benefit much from the Nvidia Titan Rtx graphic card. You better off stick to my other recommendation- the Nvidia RTX 2080ti or 2080. And if you are a serious VR gamer, well, you will also skip the Oculus Quest – the Oculus Rift S will be a better upgrade for you to leverage the Power of your gaming PC. Also, Nvidia Titan Rtx graphic card will not magically increase the playback and rendering speed of your current system unless you have a PC to match its power. To bring Titan RTX to its full potential,I ask Main gear to build me the PC dedicated to 8K VR editing and post-production using Adobe Premiere and After Effects. It is not a Gamer PC but a powerful workstation that can take on even 11K Insta360 Titan footage. I am not going to go into the detailed spec of my Main gear PC. This will be another video b/c it’s complicated. But just know, my CPU of choice is the Inteli9-9980XE – an 18 cores CPU with turbo boost to 4.40 GHz. Why not AMD RYZEN Thread ripper 2990WX with the 32-Core. There are many reasons why I choose Intel instead of AMD Thread ripper. But the most obvious one is Thunderbolt 3 support which I mentioned why in this video. Basically, my bottleneck on 8K 3D 360 production will be in the storage most of the time – and having a thunderbolt based RAID 0 drive like G-drive Shuttle XL or Laci 6-Big is essential. Okay, let’s take a look at my current Nvidia RTX 2080ti performance inside Adobe Premiere. Here is an 8K stereoscopic top and bottom project I did shot with the Insta 360 Pro 2. It won’t have a real-time playback no matter what GPU I used. So I will highly recommend you stick to my Proxy workflow right here. Premiere is kinda leveraging GPU acceleration- with CUDA for Nvidia Graphic Cards. But Premiere is not 100% utilize GPU render. So for regular 4k 2D video editing and rendering,you won’t benefit too much from Titan RTX. But for immersive video editing, all the effects or video filters you see here, are GPU accelerated. To easily see that, you can turn off Hardware acceleration and immediately see this RED warning bar. So to truly benefit from your fancy GPU, you need to make sure your video filters are all GPU accelerated. All native immersive video filters, Boris FX Continuum VR units, Mocha Pro, Mettle Mantra, Re:Vision Effects, and Neat Video denoiser you see here, are all GPU accelerated. Each decision you make on how to process your video footage will significantly impact your time spent on playback and render. And that is why so important to make smart choices. Not all VR video need sharpening if that mean saving you hours of rendering time. So my render of this 10-second 8K 3D video with all the immersive filters and ambisonic audio take around 17 minutes to finish. Looking at the resource monitor, both my CPU and my GPU are not maxed out. But the dedicated GPU memory is hitting 7.5- 8 GB. This is just a 10-second test. But for this video, which is 17 minutes long,way too long for VR, the GPU memory will entirely be hitting the 11 GB ceiling. You also see all the GPU stat here with the Task Manager and GPU-Z for reference. So now I switch to Titan RTX with the exact same PC from Main gear. Before I hit render. I open up Neat Video Version 5 here and take a look at the performance. When I use ONLY GPU render, I get average 1.03 frame per second, which is faster than CPU with 0.8 frames per second. I can relocate more GPU memory to this render to increase the speed, which I can’t on the RTX 2080ti 11GB memory. The total render time of the exact same 10-second clip took about 13 minutes to finish – which is 4 minutes increase speed. It does not look significant, but think about it, it adds up. The longer the clip and more GPU accelerated video filters, the more time you will save. That is more time you can be productive instead of waiting around or screaming at your PC. Take a look at the monitor here, the CPU is less taxing compared to the RTX 2080ti and we use 21.5 GB memory on this render – which is significantly higher. You also notice GPU resource is around 70%compared to 2080ti, which is around 50%. Is that mean Premiere is more optimize to Titan RTX? We don’t know. We are using the Studio
