dMon.io - About

 

Idea

dMon.io (Device MONitor) is the idea and implementation of a few technology enthusiasts that are just trying to make monitoring things easier.

Technology (beware of buzzwords)

This site and service are "serverless". Technically there are servers involved, but every function exists in a tiny micro-environment that often just exists for a few milliseconds and then goes away. The only relevant persistence is provided by DynamoDB and Cognito (for user accounts).

The dMon.io API runs completely on AWS, as an API Gateway, talking to Lambda, which reads and write objects to DynamoDB.

The dMon.io site also runs complately on AWS, as an API Gateway, talking to Lambda, as a python / jinja2 / flask framework site, again talking to DynamoDB, and packaged up and pushed by zappa.
