Cloud is Stacking Up Nicely By @IoT2040 | @CloudExpo [#IoT #DevOps]

The stack is the hack, Jack. That's my takeaway from several events I attended over the past few weeks in Silicon Valley and Southeast Asia. I listened to and participated in discussions about everything from large datacenter management (think Facebook Open Compute) to enterprise-level cyberfraud (at a seminar in Manila attended by the US State Dept. and Philippine National Police) to the world of entrepreneurial startups, app deployment, and mobility (in a series of meetups and talks in both the US and Asia.) I also attended the announcement of a very high-level report from the ... (more)

The upshot is that virtualization ends up just being a form of partioning; users view virtualized instances as no different from a single physical server. Gordon urges the end of skeuomorphism's reign of terror (my words, not his) now that containers are (back) in the news. So don't simply stuff "a hodepodge," as Gordon says, of operating systems versions along with you... (more)

PaaS Can Light Up the World By @IoT2040 | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

'Tis the season of light. With Diwali recently concluded, we've now entered the days of the Hannukah Festival, the Advent Season, the Nativity Fast, and in the Philippines, the onset of Simbang Gabi ("Night Mass"), a series of evening services as Christmas approaches. The Yule log is also burning metaphorically if not literally throughout much of the Western world. All center on the presence of light. As we enter the new year, fireworks will be obstreperously on display throughout the world, with the global light show extending into the Chinese New Year (literally, "Spring Festi... (more)
