IaSQL and Skyplane: Open Source Projects to Boost Your AWS Deployment

As the cloud editor for InfoQ, I often cover news about cloud open source projects. The two that really caught my attention in 2022 are iasql And skyplane,

IaSQL is a project that provides infrastructure as SQL on AWS and that can be configured to manage existing deployments, linking the AWS account to the IaSQL instance.

Skyplane is an open source tool developed at UC Berkeley to optimize the transfer of large datasets between cloud providers, reducing transfer times and costs. It forms an overlay network on top of cloud providers so that it can route around congested cloud network links.

Below you can find articles I wrote about the two projects. Have you tried any of them? Do you have other recent open source projects to recommend that helped you improve your deployment to the cloud or migration to AWS? Let me know in the comments or on LinkedIn .

Infrastructure as SQL on AWS: IaSQL is Now Open Source and SaaS

IaSQL, the company behind a service that models AWS infrastructure using SQL, recently announced that IaSQL is open source and available as software as a service. Mapping Cloud APIs to SQL tables, IaSQL manages a two-way connection between an AWS account and a hosted PostgreSQL database to describe an AWS deployment. Read more at InfoQ.

Open source Skyplane aims for faster and cheaper data transfer between clouds

A team of researchers from RISELAB at UC Berkeley have recently released Skyplane, an open source tool to optimize the transfer of large datasets between cloud providers, reducing transfer times and costs. Designed to be cloud agnostic, Skyplane currently supports transfers between object storage on AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure. Read more at InfoQ.
