Under Augustus, a compromise was reached with the construction of a parallel canal. The part of the marsh above sea level was successfully drained by channels, and new agricultural land of legendary fertility came into being. Whenever the channels were not maintained, the swamp reappeared. Meanwhile, frequent epidemics of malaria at Rome and elsewhere kept the reclamation issue alive. Under Benito Mussolini's regime in the 1930s, the problem was nearly solved by placing dikes and pumping out that portion of the marsh below sea level. It continues to need constant maintenance. Italian confidence in the project was so high, the city placed by Mussolini in 1932 in the center of the marsh, Latina, became the capital of a new province, Latina.” There were German colonies (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_colonial_empire) - mostly in Africa.

Episode 188: The transit private/public partnership, and, yeah, still, of course, kubernetes shit of the week

Jul 20, 2019 42:29

Description:

There’s a couple kubernetes announcements this week: we mostly talk about Pivotal’s, and a tad on IBM. Plus, maybe scooters are actually good for cities and compiling source code for your infrastructure software is probably a bad idea. Don’t @ us. Buy Coté’s book dirt cheap (https://leanpub.com/digitalwtf/c/sdt)! Mood Board: Evil Hodor is cancelled. Must be this short to ride free. The full mullet of monitoring. There is no nuance to this statement. Just keep using VMware. If you’re compiling the source code, you’re gonna have problems. LAMP stack. Tell me how to do what I want, not why I can’t do it. Relevant to your interests Pivotal kubernetes stuff (https://content.pivotal.io/home-page/pivotal-build-service-now-alpha-assembles-and-updates-containers-in-kubernetes), alpha of running all the stuff on Kubernetes (PKS), Pivotal’s JRE/Tomcat product now GA. “PAS on Kubernetes is packaged as a tile for Ops Manager, and uses BOSH to deploy its system components. It requires vSphere, NSX-T, and Enterprise PKS. “ (“Tile” is Pivotal speak for “feature/sub-system/plugin/extension/component/product/etc.”) Good summary from NL coverage (https://www.computable.nl/artikel/techwire/digital-transformation/6706859/2499347/pivotal-lanceert-alfaversie-pas-op-kubernetes.html): Build Service: Easily automates container images for developers and offers companies audit and security controls that are needed to work with confidence on a large scale. Build Service is made possible by the CNCF Cloud-Native Buildpacks project and is co-developed by Pivotal. RabbitMQ for Kubernetes: Automates the implementation and management of RabbitMQ. In addition, RabbitMQ is configurable and offers a self-service experience for developers; Service Mesh: Automates the installation and configuration of Istio. This allows developers to drop apps to production quickly and safely. In addition, it provides secure networks that businesses need. Spring Runtime: It offers comprehensive support for Java environments, including OpenJDK, Spring Support and Apache Tomcat. The New Stack: The Pivotal Application Service Addresses Kubernetes Complexity (https://thenewstack.io/the-pivotal-application-service-addresses-kubernetes-complexity/). Pretty good summary (https://siliconangle.com/2019/07/16/pivotal-lets-developers-go-kubernetes-new-application-service/) of Pivotal Cloud Foundry as a whole: “Pivotal Application Service is a software application development platform based on the open-source Cloud Foundry project, which provides a range of clouds, developer frameworks and app services to work with. The idea is to make it easier for developers to build, test, deploy and scale up their apps on a variety of cloud platforms.” Taft (https://searchmicroservices.techtarget.com/news/252467009/Pivotal-tools-aim-to-ease-Kubernetes-complexity-for-developers): “This reflects an important strategic shift by Pivotal to acknowledge the importance of Kubernetes as an integral component of customers' application modernization programs, said Charlotte Dunlap, an analyst at GlobalData in Santa Cruz, Calif.” Jeffrey Hammond, Forrester (https://searchmicroservices.techtarget.com/news/252467009/Pivotal-tools-aim-to-ease-Kubernetes-complexity-for-developers): "For a while I've spoken to enterprises that are worried that they have to make a choice: PAS and Cloud Foundry, or go with Kubernetes and give up what they like about PAS. This makes it possible to keep what they like about PAS and work at a higher level of abstraction, without worrying about somehow missing out on all the innovation going on in the Kubernetes world." IBM kubernetes stuff (https://devclass.com/2019/07/16/ibm-unveils-trio-of-open-source-kubernetes-projects-and-not-a-red-hat-trick-in-sight/), at OSCON. ‘Appsody is pitched as allowing developers to quickly create microservices to their organisation’s standards and requirements, using pre-configured stacks and templates for “popular open source runtimes and frameworks, providing a foundation to build applications for Kubernetes and Knative deployments.”’ ‘Codewind, is a project to provide extensions to IDEs, starting with VS Code, Eclipse and Eclipse Che, to allow them to be used to build containerised applications.’ ‘As for Kabanero, this aims to bring together projects like Knative, Istio and Tekton, along with Codewind, Appsody, and Razzee, to allow users to “architect, build, deploy, and manage the lifecycle of Kubernetes-based applications.” The project includes “pre-built deployments to Kubernetes and Knative (using Operators and Helm charts)…so, developers can spend more time developing scalable applications and less time understanding infrastructure.”’ For Digital Transformers, It's About Fast-Moving Data. Here Are Three Ways to Speed Up (https://amp-news-com-au.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/amp.news.com.au/finance/work/at-work/atlassian-ditches-brilliant-jerks-in-performance-review-overhaul/news-story/82a5e2abba1939f51d68ae81db8f05bd).

Apple is reportedly planning to pay for exclusive podcasts (https://www.engadget.com/2019/07/16/apple-reportedly-plans-to-fund-exclusive-podcasts/?guccounter=1). Hot-take: 🙄 IBM and Microsoft get milly-ons from AT&T for cloud stuff: IBM (https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/16/ibm-signs-new-cloud-deal-with-att.html): ‘As part of the agreement announced Tuesday, AT&T will use Red Hat’s open-source platform to manage workloads and applications and “better serve” enterprise customers. AT&T and IBM will also team up on developing “edge computing platforms” that harness 5G networks and internet-connected devices.’ Microsoft (https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/16/microsoft-wins-multibillion-dollar-cloud-deal-from-att.html): Office 365, plus: “Beyond AT&T’s own internal use of Microsoft technology, the companies are working together on developing tools for artificial intelligence and high-speed 5G wireless, and plan to announce additional services later this year.” Also, coverage from Tim Anderson at (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/07/16/ibm_promising_easier_kubernetes_with_kabanero_package/) The Register (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/07/16/ibm_promising_easier_kubernetes_with_kabanero_package/). Google Maps now displays bike-sharing stations worldwide (https://venturebeat.com/2019/07/16/google-maps-now-displays-bike-sharing-stations-worldwide/) - cities’ traffic planning and management is fully disrupted, really. They (well, meaning us via taxes) have to suck up the capital costs and upset people while the usual tech people skim data for advertising profits. Plus, you know, we get really good transportation options. See opening prattle.

IBM Takes A Hands Off Approach With Red Hat (https://www.itjungle.com/2019/07/15/ibm-takes-a-hands-off-approach-with-red-hat/): “Given that it has been a decade and only 20 percent of the workloads have moved, there is a lot that is going to stay private and on premises, and we need a way to operate in all of these environments as opposed to having different siloes that can’t and have skills fungibility across all of them.” Symantec share price nose dives after rumored Broadcom biz gobble taken off the menu (https://www.theregister.co.uk/AMP/2019/07/15/symantec_broadcom_deal).

Episode 187: Beyond the Fitzgeraldian Theory of Cloud Barriers to Entry

Jul 13, 2019 1:07:15

Description:

With IBM closing its acquisition of Red Hat, we discuss the changing mechanics of an enterprise software business. Why do we think the big clouds will have such an indefinite hold on market leadership when every past tech leader has been disrupted and fallen? Speaking of, Broadcom is tryin’ hard to become a portfolio company. Also, security sucks, Coté finds video chats annoying, and he can’t keep all the camera lingo in his head. Buy Coté’s book dirt cheap (https://leanpub.com/digitalwtf/c/sdt)! Also: I wish I could turn other people’s videos off. Makes money, that’s a good strategy. Security through diversity, is that a thing? Breaking news, public cloud is a good thing. I’ve been replaced by software. What the fuck do I do with a histogram? Clicking auto fixed the photo fine. Flywheelin’. You can’t cut costs by cutting your employees legs off. It was something about FStop, and then I lost it. Relevant to your interests Zoom problems. Cloudera Sees Inspiration in Red Hat, Goes "All-In" on Open Source (https://www.cbronline.com/news/cloudera-open-source). Not sure what exactly this covers, vs. Hadoop itself.

Episode 185: Drink your own dog food

Jul 1, 2019 1:12:12

Description:

Drink your own dog food No matter the searing product strategy insight, ops is always left holding the bag. With few exceptions (like NSX), infrastructure software has to be free and easy to check out and even use. All product management and strategy decisions flow from that. Usually. Except when they don’t. Also, developers don’t pay for anything, they trick ops into it. Maybe that’ll change in public cloud land, but who knows? Buy Coté’s book dirt cheap (https://leanpub.com/digitalwtf/c/sdt)! Also: Dark green smoothies. Immediate value. Gotta schedule a phone call to optimize phone calls. A light under a bushel. Free bread crumbs to the public cloud oven. Don't feel ashamed, everywhere else is fucked too, cf. Lean accounting. OpenShift too expensive, but no one actually checked the price. Slit your wrists with a business card. “DJ Pull Request.” (https://www.google.com/search?q=%22DJ+Pull+Request%22&oq=%22DJ+Pull+Request%22&aqs=chrome..69i57.4507j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8) Brandon’s organic trash matter.

Episode 184: The developer survey bong talk SIG

Jun 21, 2019 52:34

Description:

Do organizations ever just want to do a good job? Not really. Also, after looking through a new developer survey: Developers change what they use, but pretty much stay the same. Also, half of the, still don’t use build pipelines or issue trackers. When will these kids learn? And Coté explains why Nietzsche’s Eternal Return thing (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eternal_return) seems unhelpful. Buy Coté’s book dirt cheap (https://leanpub.com/digitalwtf/c/sdt)! Also: Pretty hard stop in an hour. Slack Messaging Transport Protocol and The Cold Chain Drum-circle free zone at Vondelpark (https://www.instagram.com/p/By7WXhWiN4c/?igshid=5ryhtzgbt15h)! Like us on Facebook as we hate on Facebook As people would call it… bong talk. If I’m gonna do a good job I’m gonna need a good editor. Do .ini files still exist? Or has Microsoft gone all yaml? The back 1/3 of all sci fi movies and religions. Relevant to your interests The state of Developer Ecosystem in 2019 Infographic (https://www.jetbrains.com/lp/devecosystem-2019/) Only half use CI/CD? Been like that in surveys for many years, since 2012 or so. Also, only 44% use an issue tracker? Weird. Testing is pretty good with 70% doing unit testing. Kubernetes Turns Five: Cloud Native Goes Mainstream (https://content.pivotal.io/analyst-reports/kubernetes-turns-five) Open Core Summit 2019 (https://ti.to/open-core-summit/open-core-summit) This is a VC/startup conference, seems. Why cloud is the best defense against AWS (https://www.techrepublic.com/article/why-cloud-is-the-best-defense-against-aws/) I guess it’s some fanfic on OSS companies being good at running managed middleware services? Not too far fetched of an idea: they just need good SREs and the ability to reliably and cheaply run on public clouds. Kind of like selling against generics in grocery stores. Kubernetes and the future of cloud native: We chat with Kelsey Hightower (https://about.gitlab.com/2019/05/13/kubernetes-chat-with-kelsey-hightower/) TechExplorers: Kelsey Hightower (https://youtu.be/9OHNejqXOoo?t=988) Lots of people doing it wrong: gotta have cloud native apps; don’t build platforms?

Good attention to the whole life of a customer and paying attention total revenue across their “life,” e.g.:“A customer might spend 6 months scaling their deployment on their own. But if we could help them do that in 3 months, then we probably just pulled in our next sale by one quarter. “ What are the “average” prices for thing here? Analogously, you can bucket the pricing for all condemnts (with truffle oil being an outlier) in the $1 to $15 range. But not, like, $100. There must be some basic clusters of OSS pricing. (Expensive stuff is hard to sell in this funnel.) I suppose looking at avg. annual revenue per customer for all these OSS companies would get you there. “Bodies in Seats” - Facebook moderators (https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/19/18681845/facebook-moderator-interviews-video-trauma-ptsd-cognizant-tampa?stream=top) Even FB outsources!

(I want to write a very practical, “here, put these features in your software/do these projects/etc.” kind of write-up for various industries.) Most of the the innovations and responses - “digital transformation” are just getting better apps. Like, power companies that charge annually, my life insurance company with PDFs. E.g., Lemonade doing a claim for a Canadian Goose jacket for $979 in 3 seconds (https://www.lemonade.com/blog/lemonade-sets-new-world-record/), Zürich Insurance using AR with risk engineers (https://internetofbusiness.com/zurich-insurance-ai-iot-ar/)…Pivotal stories aplenty. The framing is basically (https://go.forrester.com/blogs/creating-the-cx-centric-utility/) “use these opportunities to reframe their relationship with the customer, leveraging the principles of customer experience and, in turn, will change their key processes and operations to deliver the CX-centric utility.” That is, better customer service, faster sales transactions (buying, whatever) with the customers, and easier research/comprehension (test out how long it takes you to find the details of benefits for your credit card - look up the price you pay for water - see what your total return on your retirement investing is, etc.). THIS IS ALL GREAT! BUT WHY SO HARD? (IS IT HARD?) My theory: this stuff isn’t hard, it just costs money and time. And just like developers don’t want to pay for anything, executives don’t want to pay for anything. Turns out, though, when you pay for something you get, you know, something.

Episode 181: There wasn’t a sign that said I was in a drum circle zone

Jun 3, 2019 1:18:21

Description:

You can now pay open source developers directly, well, those in the closed beta. Seems like a good idea, really. Also, the Commonwealth and Friends club doesn’t like Huawei, and thought lords can be bores. Hey! Want to get Coté’s book, a collection of writing on DevOps, agile, and THE DIGITAL? Go to leanpub.com/digitalwtf and use the code SDT to get $20 off (https://leanpub.com/digitalwtf/c/sdt) Digital WTF (https://leanpub.com/digitalwtf/c/sdt), so $5 total. And, if you want a free copy, contact Coté and tell him you’ll help market it (advertise it, put it in Twitter, by post to your uncle, whatever!) and he’ll send you a code for a free copy. Also: What kind of hippy were you, Coté? Any whistles? Low-tech rave. 3 slides in Guam. Thought-acting. New hire announcements need to be auto-deleted. Not for you. I can assure you conference organizers… I am not polished. YAML for good. No YAML for payment. It’s going to be more than $10,000 for LDAP. Can’t tell if I like American Gods, but I keep reading/watching it. German crossbow guys, aka, c (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48257713)rossbow bolt cult in Germany (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48257713). A crossbow only does d4 of damage.

Episode 179: I don’t know if it has a pickle plugin

May 16, 2019 1:17:20

Description:

I don’t know if it has a pickle plugin Salesforce synergizing at IBM and Red Hat, VMware buys Bitnami, and Linux Desktop market share analysis. Plus, pickles. Opening comments: The intersection between business books and dog vomit. Democracy sausage. Coté can’t get extra pickles (https://www.instagram.com/p/Bxh5ikuiFuK/). Let me close out this topic of pickles. It’s not Burger King. Enterprise Salespeople don’t get tattoos T-shirt currency arbitrage. Literally misspelled responsibility Tacos and IT transformation 7 layer burrito of IT transformation. BSD and Linux are the same, right? (Don’t email me.) Don’t watch Coté’s old videos (https://www.youtube.com/user/redmonkmedia/videos). Did the cat walk on your keyboard? Relevant to your interests VMware to acquire Bitnami (https://blog.bitnami.com/2019/05/vmware-to-acquire-bitnami.html): VMware’s desires (https://cloud.vmware.com/community/2019/05/15/vmware-to-acquire-bitnami/): “Upon close, Bitnami will enable our customers to easily deploy application packages on any cloud— public or hybrid—and in the most optimal format—virtual machine (VM), containers and Kubernetes helm charts. Further, Bitnami will be able to augment our existing efforts to deliver a curated marketplace to VMware customers that offers a rich set of applications and development environments in addition to infrastructure software.” Coté: so Bitnami is a thing that packages up software (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitnami) for you in (VMs?) containers and stuff, maybe with some Helm chart stuff for deploying to kubernetes? And a service that manages them in EC2? Jay@451 (https://clients.451research.com/reportaction/97114/Toc): “The acquisition will also help VMware support applications in various forms – including VMs, containers and Kubernetes Helm charts – across the different infrastructures. With Bitnami, VMware is also positioned to support ISVs and open source software components with Bitnami's catalog of curated, secured, certified components.” “VMware says it has acquired Bitnami for its multi-cloud competency and its Kubernetes expertise. VMware's acquisitions of CloudVelox, Heptio and CloudHealth have signaled its appetite for multi-cloud and Kubernetes.” The New Stack coverage: “Monocular, a service described by Bitnami as an open source search and discovery frontend for Helm Chart repositories.” https://thenewstack.io/vmware-to-acquire-bitnami-the-app-marketplace-platform-and-container-packager/ (https://thenewstack.io/vmware-to-acquire-bitnami-the-app-marketplace-platform-and-container-packager/) Holy high street, Sainsbury's!

As a result, or so Jordan claimed, the mart spends 30 per cent less on infrastructure, and regularly sees a 70-80 per cent improvement in performance of interactions on the website and batch processing.” Australian $50 bills (https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/may/09/australian-50-note-typo-spelling-mistake-printed-46-million-times) Symantec CEO Greg Clark steps down, stock drops (https://www.cnbc.com/2019/05/09/symantec-ceo-greg-clark-steps-down-stock-drops-.html?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter_axioslogin&stream=top) GitHub Package Registry: Your packages, at home with their code (https://github.co/2DZiJGY) JFrog and Sonatype watch out How Windows and Chrome quietly made 2019 the year of Linux on the desktop (https://t.co/FvmA86HFdU?ssr=true) It’s time for another installment of Coté’s Pedantry on Market Share Analysis (tm). Windows ships a Linux in a nifty VM. Chromebook market share was ~13% in Gartner’s 2016Q4 estimates (based on 9.4m Chromebooks (https://www.pcworld.com/article/3194946/chromebook-shipments-surge-by-38-percent-cutting-into-windows-10-pcs.html) shipped out of 72.6m laptops total (https://www.gartner.com/en/newsroom/press-releases/2017-01-11-gartner-says-2016-marked-fifth-consecutive-year-of-worldwide-pc-shipment-decline)). Meanwhile, Gartner estimates that something like 2bn mobile devices (phones and tablets) were shipped in 2016. Gartner said shipments for “PCs, tablets and mobile phones” was 2.33bn in 2016 (if I read the press release right (https://www.gartner.com/en/newsroom/press-releases/2018-01-29-gartner-says-worldwide-device-shipments-will-increase-2-point-1-percent-in-2018) - something around those numbers). …if you run-rate the Chromebook Q4 (which is very kind since Christmas and corporate end-of-year spending is in Q4), you get 2016 shipments of 37.6m Chromebooks. So, out of all types of computing devices, Chromebooks are, like 37.6m out of 2.3bn, or ~2%, right? Clearly: LINUX DESKTOP VICTORY! (I guess you could throw MacOS in there, but those who’d care say that was BSD or something, right? Even if you do throw them in and do *nix market share, what’s it like? Gartner says 2018Q4 (https://www.gartner.com/en/newsroom/press-releases/2019-01-10-gartner-says-worldwide-pc-shipments-declined-4-3-perc) Apple share was 7.2%, so add in Chromebooks and we’re at 9.2% - round it up for shits and giggles, and we’re at 10%.

The deal should also have a broad impact on enterprise DevOps since CloudBees – backer of the widely used Jenkins CI server – will add release management, orchestration, automation and other aspects of CD from Electric Cloud, a leading enterprise DevOps specialist. The combined offerings should help provide feedback for enterprises throughout CI/CD release processes, enabling and enhancing feedback loops that are critical to successful DevOps implementations. The move may also help both vendors address the use of cloud-native software such as containers and Kubernetes, as well as hybrid cloud infrastructures that span on-premises, public and private cloud environments.” Electric Cloud has ~110 employees, CloudBess ~400. Harness raises $60 million to automate continuous app delivery with machine learning (https://venturebeat.com/2019/04/23/harness-raises-60-million-to-automate-continuous-app-delivery-with-machine-learning/): “brings Harness’ total raised to around $80 million and values the company at $500 million, will be put toward R&D and hiring, said CEO Jyoti Bansal — particularly on the development, sales, and customer success side of the business.” (So, not marketing, HR, or finance.)

Episode 168: What executives actually want to hear

Mar 1, 2019 1:09:30

Description:

There’s a lot of notions about what IT executives actually want to hear in a presentation. It turns out that, like all of us, they just want to hear what they want to hear. Also, is kubernetes really a platform for building platforms, or just a platform? More topics: We can’t talk about blockchain until you’ve done your digital transformation. The Car Wash EBC. Dutch bread. The outcome is that my daughter is no longer hungry. No one ever likes the website. DevRel is Standup. I never get to the part where I deprecate myself. This sandwich is shelf-ware.

Episode 165: Lock-in is a lie, or, paying for Java support

Feb 7, 2019 59:43

Description:

Should you pay for Java support? Now you get to decide! It’s more kindle for the lock-in fire. Also, some uninformed commentary on “surveillance capitalism.” Solarwinds To learn more or try the company’s DevOps products for free, visit https://solarwinds.com/devops. Relevant to your interests Oracle Will Charge for Java Starting in 2019 (https://www.aspera.com/en/blog/oracle-will-charge-for-java-starting-in-2019/). What was Java treated like way back in the mid-2000s Sun days? Should you pay for this kind of thing? It seems like the answer is just to run an OpenJDK version (Oracle even has one) or pay for support. With OpenJDK you have to do updates/patches yourself…but, then, that’s why you don’t have to pay for it. Pay for it, and you’re paying someone else to worry about that. Forrester Report (https://www.forrester.com/report/Weighing%20The%20Options%20To%20Oracles%20New%20Java%20SE%20Subscription/-/E-RES147596): “The new subscription's prices for Oracle Java SE support — $25 a month per server core and $2.50 a month per Java client — apply to all Oracle Java SE commercial customers. Previously, only Oracle's Java SE Advanced customers paid support fees to obtain security patches among other benefits ($5,000 per processor, plus 22%).” Oracle to do two Java releases a year, but many companies are way behind and don’t like upgrading. Like, if you haven’t reached release management maturity: “Executing manual regression tests multiple times each year to stay on the latest version of OpenJDK will prove to be a labor-draining exercise, but so will automating existing manual tests and keeping them up to date.” Old stuff likes old pricing models: “For Java runtimes, however, monthly subscriptions have minimal advantage, as most applications are now stable workloads. Most customers don't need pricing that allows them to scale down, as they almost never will.” From their blog on the topic: “Under the best of circumstances, a technology base of Java’s size, age, and complexity can’t pivot within six months to new support structures carrying big potential additional costs.” Thieves of Experience: How Google and Facebook Corrupted Capitalism (https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/thieves-of-experience-how-google-and-facebook-corrupted-capitalism/). “surveillance capitalism uses human life as its raw material. Our everyday experiences, distilled into data, have become a privately owned business asset used to predict and mold our behavior, whether we’re shopping or socializing, working or voting.” If you’re not buying a product, you are a product “gets it wrong. Surveillance capitalism’s real products, vaporous but immensely valuable, are predictions about our future behavior — what we’ll look at, where we’ll go, what we’ll buy, what opinions we’ll hold — that internet companies derive from our personal data and sell to businesses, political operatives, and other bidders.” The question is: what’re other options? The latest (https://overcast.fm/+FOORYEgm8) The Weeds (https://overcast.fm/+FOORYEgm8) episode (Feb 5th, 2019) (https://overcast.fm/+FOORYEgm8) has a discussion of Facebook making you unhappy, and also compared to the TV rotting your brain meme.

Episode 162: The diapers.com effect, also, LTS and the mysteries of software pricing

Jan 18, 2019 1:04:37

Description:

Are we still on that open source licensing thing? Yes. “The most boring topic of all time.” Also, Slack's logo and long term support software monetization models: how do they work? Summary: “Diapers.com buster (AKA Amazon)” “What is someone really selling with LTS?” “Artful genitals.” “It’s not butt ducks” “I’ve had three dogs since then…” Microsoft laughed. This week’s cover art from TheNextWeb (https://thenextweb.com/apps/2019/01/16/slack-has-a-new-logo-and-umm-you-be-the-judge/). MONGO, MONGO, MONGO! MongoDB Issues New Server Side Public License for MongoDB Community Server (https://www.mongodb.com/press/mongodb-issues-new-server-side-public-license-for-mongodb-community-server) MongoDB not in RHEL 8.0 (https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8-beta/html/8.0_beta_release_notes/new-features#web_servers_databases_dynamic_languages_2) MongoDB "open-source" Server Side Public License rejected (https://www.zdnet.com/article/mongodb-open-source-server-side-public-license-rejected/) AWS vs. open source: DocumentDB is the latest battlefront (https://www.infoworld.com/article/3331903/database/aws-vs-open-source-documentdb-is-the-latest-battlefront.html) AWS gives open source the middle finger (https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/09/aws-gives-open-source-the-middle-finger/) AWS, MongoDB, and the Economic Realities of Open Source (https://stratechery.com/2019/aws-mongodb-and-the-economic-realities-of-open-source/) (Ben Thompson) Fine, fine…but music companies didn’t “sell” CDs, they sold music. Authors don’t “sell” printed books, they sell stories. They sell IP. The medium isn’t the product. “This trade-off is inescapable, and it is fair to wonder if the golden age of VC-funded open source companies will start to fade (although not open source generally). The monetization model depends on the friction of on-premise software; once cloud computing is dominant, the economic model is much more challenging.” There’s some ponderous gyrating between public cloud being good at managed hosting/services (they run the stuff well) vs. software (their features are unique/good). Ben’s follow-up (https://stratechery.com/2019/mongodb-follow-up-aws-incentives-batteries-the-iphones-missing-miss/#memberful_done) (subscription required): “ Atlas was only 8% of total revenue last year, which grew 57% year-over-year; that means that Atlas itself grew 330% year-over-year, from $3.3 million to $14.3 million. Of course cost of revenue grew 68% as well, thanks to a $4.1 million increase in hosting costs (AWS wins either way), but particularly given the addition of a free Atlas offering, those costs aren’t out of line.” So, with this “SSPL” thing, AWS would have to open source all of itself, or just the DocumentDB part? Here (https://www.zdnet.com/article/mongodb-open-source-server-side-public-license-rejected/): “The specific objection is that SSPL requires, if you offer services licensed under it, that you must open-source all programs that you use to make the software available as a service. From Mongo’s press release on SSPL, Oct. 2018 (https://www.mongodb.com/press/mongodb-issues-new-server-side-public-license-for-mongodb-community-server): “The only substantive change is an explicit condition that any organization attempting to exploit MongoDB as a service must open source the software that it uses to offer such service.” What would happen if AWS was all open source? Given that few companies could use OpenStack or make their own clouds (even with cloud.com and such), just having the code matters little to a successful cloud business, right? Or, maybe it doesn’t mean all of AWS, just the DocumentDB part. Which is, really, the in the spirit of the GPL. The competitive tactic of forcing competitors to open source their stuff is weird.

So the resources available to Diane may not have always been allocated in the right place, but the resource is there and he has to sit down and see what partners and customer are saying.” More: ‘This might take the form of a growth of the sales or go-to-market teams at Google Cloud, but essentially "enterprises need consistency and roadmaps to adjust as they go," Wang said, and Google Cloud needs to do better at delivering that if it wants to take a bigger chunk of the public cloud market over the crucial coming years. "Google has the opportunity, but the window is closing, so there is 18 months to two years to right the ship," he said.’ History (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-oracle-kurian-insight-idUSKBN0KL0BL20150112): built middleware business in the 2000s, Fusion ERP apps integration, cloud business.

Today’s recognized pillars of observability combine metrics, traces, and logs to enable DevOps teams to monitor system and application performance. But, these capabilities provide only limited insights into application performance because they ignore the user’s experience—a critical measure of application performance. Understanding if a system is slow or unavailable from an end user’s perspective is crucial in today’s digital world, even if the metrics are good and there are no alerts. Altogether, the combined functionality of Pingdom, AppOptics, Papertrail, and Loggly brings together real user monitoring, synthetic user monitoring, web and application performance metrics, distributed tracing, event aggregation, and log management to help proactively identify bottlenecks and accelerate troubleshooting. By bringing user experience, metrics, traces, and logs together with an easy-to-use, complementary toolkit, DevOps teams gain unmatched visibility into their cloud environment, so they can seamlessly follow an alert or issue from one product into another to resolve issues quickly and get back to focusing on the more proactive elements of their job.

Episode 155: Existing investments & business innovation fuel

Nov 15, 2018 1:21:45

Description:

Hybrid cloud and kubernetes with Cisco, and the latest beard analysis from the OpenStack community, and some spontaneous ERP and ethics of Facebook meandering - all this week in our power episode! Relevant to your interests Cisco Introduces First Hybrid Kubernetes Platform Support For Amazon EKS (https://www.forbes.com/sites/moorinsights/2018/11/08/cisco-introduces-first-hybrid-kubernetes-platform-support-for-amazon-eks/#426d8894cf62) “The Cisco Hybrid Solution for Kubernetes on AWS enables configuration of the Kubernetes-based Cisco Container Platform optimized for ease of deploying applications on Kubernetes across either Cisco-based on-premises infrastructure or the Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS).” I’m pretty sure this (https://blogs.cisco.com/cloud/simplifying-container-orchestration) means Active Directory now works with k8s: AWS and Cisco. https://alln-extcloud-storage.cisco.com/ciscoblogs/5bea023b0b27b.png The style, diction, and tone of this piece is some classic power-marketing, e.g., “first,” “only,” “Enterprises have been forced to make a tradeoff in these choices that they would rather avoid.” Also, notice the “I HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU THIS” side-notes here and there. Cisco’s site on it (https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/cloud-systems-management/hybrid-solution-kubernetes-on-aws/index.html), and press release (https://newsroom.cisco.com/press-release-content?type=webcontent&articleId=1952730). Developer value-propin’, from the Cisco PR quote: “Now, developers can use existing investments to build new cloud-scale applications that fuel business innovation.” And, elsewhere (https://blogs.cisco.com/news/accelerate-innovation): “Public clouds provide developers with platforms for rapidly developing and deploying applications, yet most enterprises have their own data centers that house important workloads. That’s why hybrid cloud is a requirement for most enterprises.” Well, at least their straight-up on pricing: “Pricing for software-only subscriptions will start at approximately $65,000 per year for a typical entry-level configuration. On AWS, customers pay $0.20 per hour for each Amazon EKS cluster that they create in addition to the AWS resources (e.g. Amazon EC2 instances or Amazon Elastic Block Store volumes) they create to run Kubernetes worker nodes.” SAP snaps up Qualtrics for $8B days before its expected IPO, will keep Seattle office (https://www.geekwire.com/2018/sap-snaps-qualtrics-8b-days-expected-ipo-will-keep-seattle-office/): “Qualtrics offers software-as-a-service that companies use to measure and manage their reputations with current and prospective customers as well as a similar service for internal use managing employees.” Report: Vista Equity Partners poised to pay $1.9 billion in private-equity deal for Apptio (https://www.geekwire.com/2018/report-vista-equity-partners-poised-pay-1-9-billion-private-equity-deal-apptio/) Report: Amazon picks New York and Northern Virginia for HQ2 (https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/12/tech/amazon-hq2-new-york-virginia/index.html) Google went down after traffic was routed through China and Russia (https://www.engadget.com/2018/11/13/google-outage-rerouted-china-russia/) Amazon Announces New York and Virginia as HQ2 Picks (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/13/technology/amazon-hq2-headquarters.html) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams Amazon’s imminent arrival in Queens (https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/11/13/18091104/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-amazon-hq-2-queens) OpenStack Expands With New Projects, Canonical’s CEO Is Not Thrilled (https://www.sdxcentral.com/articles/news/openstack-expands-with-new-projects-canonicals-ceo-is-not-thrilled-about-it/2018/11/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzRss&utm_campaign=sdxcentral) Red Hat Squeezes OpenStack, OpenShift Closer Together (https://www.sdxcentral.com/articles/news/red-hat-squeezes-openstack-openshift-closer-together/2018/11/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzRss&utm_campaign=sdxcentral) OpenStack expands focus beyond the IaaS cloud (https://www.zdnet.com/article/openstack-expands-focus-beyond-the-iaas-cloud/#ftag=RSSbaffb68) The Foundation keeps on the plan of expanding its portfolio.

This fit the market need in many cases, but posed significant challenges from a marketing and messaging standpoint, as the market understands product companies and service companies but is less comfortable with descriptions that don’t entirely fit into either bucket.” “None of [the open source tools developers love(d) so much] concerned VMware particularly, because as its early developer attention waned its popularity within the operations side of the house – and central IT in particular – boomed. Which has been good for the company generally as central IT has historically been less concerned both about software being open source and being free than developers, which has led to VMware becoming an enterprise datacenter standard which in turn led to its current $60.7B market cap – a valuation roughly double that of Red Hat’s, for context.” Related: El Reg (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/11/06/vmware_vmworld_europe_summary/) decoder ring (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/11/06/vmware_vmworld_europe_summary/).

Look, Red Hat and IBM are Pivotal competitors, good ones: we wish them success in this complex integration, it’s good they’re finally trying to fix their cloud portfolio, we’re hiring, etc., etc.. Let’s take it for mature-granted that we’d prefer enterprises be Pivotal customers than IBM/Red Hat customers. Now, let’s put that aside. This is an exquisite slide from their deck (https://www.ibm.com/investor/att/pdf/IBM-RED-HAT-Charts-10-2018.pdf): https://d2mxuefqeaa7sj.cloudfront.net/s_F8186D6801E202DEB03199A6D1F610BAB9CB91A2CFD988A2666F991EBC2E6CC0_1541067546607_image.png Easily the best corporate deck slide of 2018. First, this is a bold, good move. Acquiring Red Hat has always been a hill too high and it’s kind of mind-blowing that someone actually did it. The valuation here is sort of besides the point of anything impressive. In contrast, the GitHub valuation was impressive because GitHub is a one product company (please don’t email me about “community” as a separate product - sure thing, I agree). Red Hat is kind of everything IBM has missing…except public cloud. To be, I guess, contrarian and annoyingly not Pivotal-biased, I think it’ll be hard for IBM to fuck this up. On that last point, Ben Thompson (https://stratechery.com/2018/ibms-old-playbook/): “The company has spent the years since then claiming it is committed to catching up in the public cloud, but the truth is that Palmisano sealed the company’s cloud fate when he failed to invest a decade ago; indeed, one of the most important takeaways from the Red Hat acquisition is the admission that IBM’s public cloud efforts are effectively dead.” In other word, IBM is too late to catch-up to public cloud co.’s, it’d need to spend lots of capex to get close. Related, sick nerd burn: “Meanwhile, [IBM’s] aforementioned commitment to the cloud has mostly been an accounting fiction derived from re-classifying existing businesses” Fixing IBM’s cloud business. What was wrong in the first place? Things Red Hat has: RHEL revenue, JBoss developer presence, product/developer know-how, support know-how, OSS good-will, OpenShift as a k8s distribution: RHEL & IBM has a foot-print in most all enterprise stacks, but not public cloud(?) IBM knows how to eek out OS revenue, so does Red Hat. JBoss + WebSphere. At some point, IBM had a huge developer community. They likely do among enterprise developers (but even there, it’s been fading). Red Hat has developers - I assume. People do like kubernetes. The know-how and good will are interesting - added to IBM’s OSS equivalent (they still have that?) you have, potentially, the biggest OSS people around…? I’m not sure which standards bodies this allows them more control over, no which projects. Google and Microsoft are contenders here too. “Lock-in”: From the press release: “research shows that 80 percent of business workloads have yet to move to the cloud, held back by the proprietary nature of today’s cloud market.” (No citation provided. I will assume it’s from the Anonymous Galactic Research Board Whose IP Licensing Policy Prohibits Your From Citing Us By Name Because We Prefer to Peacefully Float In Space Like Those Rasta Dudes in William Gibson Books But The Good Early Ones Not The Weird In The Present Ones Except For the Blue Color of Bigend’s Suit Which Was Actually Pretty Cool - But Cuban Parkour Ninja Cults? Boy.) See also: Turns out Pareto was some kind of every single study ever genius. Shut it down, boys, turns out every survey result ends up in an 80/20 split. As ever, this topic vexes me. I take lock-in to mean: I don’t want to keep paying this rent-seeker, aka, “maintenance contracts - AMIRIGHT?.” I’m just interested in paying less. If you gave me a closed source offering that was free, I’d be just as happy. I don’t want to get trapped in an aging stack that isn’t evolving (e.g., I want to use node.js on UNIVACs, or something), so I need “the freedom to leave” to get the benefits of new technologies. I like having the source code for transparency, to make my own forks, and/or because rainbows and sandals. Like, seriously, what options do you have to move to? DIY stack - you’re going to take the IBM/Red Hat stack and run it all on your own, merging in new releases and patches, even forking and evolving it yourself. Will all the IBM stuff be available? What if you run on VMware or Azure or Softlayer? How do you rebuild that entire stack? So you just want to rebuild a little bit of it? If you throw OpenStack with KVM in there, plus whatever SDN and storage stuff you could get in open source, throw in some OSS network routing…you could get away with the only proprietary thing being chips and other rando hardware things. You’ll need some bare-metel BIOS/firmware update things. Begged question: how far (and up!) the stack do you want to be un-proprietary? Only use OSS Android on jail-broken phones? No iPhones, clearly, and toss out Safari, macOS, and Windows - maybe you can cruise in with some HTML5 stuff through Firefox and Chrome on the desktop and mobile, then on some Eclipse for GUIs? AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, AzureStack, Pivotal ready stack with VMware - perhaps you could take the thin k8s and PaaS layer from the Red Hat IBM stack and move it to those clouds? Will that work? Is it better, economically and innovation roadmap-ally than just sticking with IBM/Red Hat Alibaba and the other non-Western clouds. Same. MSPs like Rackspace. Maybe - the Rackspace people could just run whatever you want. See concerns of #1, plus the premium paid for “fanatical.” Maybe Rackspace has some SRE magic that allows them to do what you’d be doing at 80% of the cost, or something. I don’t understand this reasoning. How is IBM + Red Hat lack of “proprietary nature”? If I’m running an IBM/RedHat stack, can I just move off all my workloads over night, paying nothing to move and then run my workloads, like, perfectly? If I’m running on that stack, and then I want to move to Google Cloud, does that work? Where-else would I go? Can I just take my pods and throw them onto Azure? Also, if any of these are practically true - it’s a shitty business for IBM/Red Hat to be in, at least a huge risk for them to carry. Any time a customer cashes in on freedom to leave, that’s lost revenue to IBM/Red Hat. My point is: I wish we’d stop talking about lock-in and focus on more practical matters, namely, does the technology work, does it work in a good ecosystem/community (I can find and make it work with other stuff), does it evolve/innovate at a pace I like, and am I happy with the initial and ongoing costs. If the answer to all of those is yes, I don’t think people care about OSS versus closed. But what do I know, I don’t know such stuff, I just do slides. What really matters is getting the two sales forces to sell each other’s stuff, esp. accelerating OpenShift. The IBM sales force has to sell moving away from their traditional offerings (WebSphere, 3 tier, etc.) and instead sell modernizing to OpenShift. That’s fine, but a lot to ask. Also, the comp. plans might get dicey. Part of the point of modernizing is to reduce costs, implying a lower up-front deal-size and smaller ongoing deal-size. So, you’re asking the IBM rep to sell cheaper products, potentially. And if you’re not, see lock-in screed above on pricing. There’s not much upside to sales people here, aside from maybe holding onto an eroding market, but that’s years out, sales people are short-term focused by design. Red Hat sales people might fare better because they’re used to that deal size and can sell more; however, IBM sales people will resist these Red Hat people getting into their account and snatching their paper. All of this is not a killer, but likely the bulk of work that needs to be nailed to synergize maximally (my favorite type of synergizing).

Episode 152: Who put robots in my clouds? Oracle OpenWorld

Oct 24, 2018 1:11:40

Description:

There’s all sorts of cloud stuff coming out of Oracle OpenWorld this week, so Brando and Coté talk about the mouth-feel of the news. Related, Amazon’s attempts to get off Oracle in Ohio, iCloud dropping out, and JEDI problems. Sponsored by SolarWinds This episode is sponsored by SolarWinds and this week SolarWinds wants you to know about their DevOps tool: AppOptics. Today, there is a divide between application and infrastructure health metrics—and the lack of unified dashboards, alerting, and management. With SolarWinds AppOptics you get a bird’s-eye view across all your resources on a single pane of glass—but can also drill quickly into the details. AppOptics includes built-in integrations for over 150 cloud-first applications, instant visibility into server and infrastructure performance, robust custom metrics dashboards, and automated APM request tracing. It’s SaaS-hosted, easy to manage, and budget friendly. Over 275,000 customers trust SolarWinds for the performance data they need, and AppOptics lets developers and operations get back to doing what they love: delighting users.

Ellison makes convincing pitch on automation and security for Oracle Cloud 2.0...but can’t resist trashing AWS (https://diginomica.com/2018/10/22/oracle-openworld-2018-ellison-makes-convincing-pitch-on-automation-and-security-for-oracle-cloud-2-0-but-cant-resist-trashing-aws/amp/) Kurt’s summary of Oracle cloud stuff (https://diginomica.com/2018/10/24/oracle-openworld-2018-making-the-cloud-friendly-for-enterprises-that-distrust-cloud/), pretty good. Coté: Look, I don’t really know their portfolio well. It’s hard to follow cause it doesn’t show up in all my feeds like, well, everything else. I’m intrigued by their emphasis on performance and (to a lesser extent) cost. They really hit up the performance characteristics - I’m not sure they mention ease of use or “outcomes” very much. The focus on security (https://diginomica.com/2018/10/23/oracle-openworld-2018-the-iaas-security-story/) is bizarre. Not because they shouldn’t have these things, but because these things are, well, what they should have. Cloud vendors don’t go around chest thumping about how secure they are in the same way that bakers don’t go around chest thumping about how their food is edible. Performance pitching has always been Oracle’s thing (as those of us who used to read printed trade rags know (https://www.google.fr/search?q=Oracle+vs.+sun+ads&tbm=isch&tbs=rimg:Cct5Jmsu4-qNIjgq2wpB3sF3r_1pjEdCkZ1fAi3Xg3Y7F6SdwqDwrrXU_18_1gYTP9ZrXyNCJH93AlHRe5Sgjj3AlJuNCoSCSrbCkHewXevEY5MaxXMYSooKhIJ-mMR0KRnV8ARGteHXdYot7EqEgmLdeDdjsXpJxEudUWno7A7hCoSCXCoPCutdT_1zEV2S9aFgvsWIKhIJ-BhM_11mtfI0RDKnCqovVg_1cqEgkIkf3cCUdF7hEHpSQHkysqZSoSCVKCOPcCUm40EW3myYJY_1IlP&tbo=u&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiPh4j4tp_eAhWDx4UKHXGCD0IQ9C96BAgBEBg&biw=1680&bih=917&dpr=2)). It’s sort of indicative of easier sales: it’s all numbers in a spreadsheet, then you sort a column and it tells you which vendor to pick. Then there’s Oracle commentary on Amazon of how hard it is to move off Oracle, just barely wrapping itself in the mantle of “because our stuff works better,” when at the core it seems like the worst case of lock-in rent-seeking: ‘Oracle Chairman and co-founder Larry Ellison (https://www.cnbc.com/larry-ellison/) isn't buying it. On the company's earnings call in December, Ellison said Amazon "is not moving off of Oracle." He reiterated his point at an August event (https://www.cnbc.com/2018/08/07/larry-ellison-says-it-will-be-really-hard-for-amazon-not-to-use-orac.html), saying, "I don't think they can do it. ‘They've had 10 years to get off Oracle, and they're still on Oracle," he said. "And it's not going to be easy for them to use their own technology. It's not going to be cost-effective. I mean, it's really, really hard.’ ☞ This kind of talk is why we all love to hear “Larry” (as everyone calls him) talk. He’s like the Steve Banon of the IT industry. They should start demo’ing at DevOpsDays and O’Reilly conferences more. Topic: when pitching to “the community” is irrelevant, or, “CIOs don’t go to your shit conferences, nerds.” Now, to put me further out on on the ledge of not knowing Oracle well, they sell a shit-ton of ERP software. They could likely have a larger, positive impact on global productivity by making that ERP software better, no matter how good it is. In the coverage I’ve read, there’s little talk about how they’re revolutionizing ERP stuff - how “machine learning” is improving that. Can it figure out how to file expenses for me? Optimize a supply chain (what ever the fuck that means), etc.? For example, Oracle has the potential to turn all that Watson talk intro practical, everyday applications of “AI.” IBM doesn’t have an ERP suite (they just have re-selling and packaging other people’s stuff injected with Watson thingies - again, whatever the fuck that means) - but Oracle does, plus the foot-print of people using it. I’m sure there’s plenty of money in databases…but their potential to improve their customer’s life is probably more in apps. Diginomica had some ERP coverage: Park Hotels going from analog to digital in accounting (https://diginomica.com/2018/10/24/park-hotels-and-resorts-makes-the-cloud-its-destination-of-choice/), and an excellent example from Red Cross work on improving outcomes (https://diginomica.com/2018/10/24/american-red-cross-equips-volunteers-with-mobile-app-for-disaster-relief/). And then back to our regularly scheduled price/performance (https://diginomica.com/2018/10/24/oracle-openworld-2018-wells-fargo-and-halliburton-reap-the-benefits-of-consolidating-on-oracle-exadata/) talk. Kurt has some good, dry lines: Burn-town: “[Oracle’s] Cloud 2.0 looks more like Cloud 0.5” compare to: “My project look like science fair, your project look like section 8.” (https://genius.com/8200581) Amazon's move off Oracle caused Prime Day outage in big Ohio warehouse, internal report says (https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/23/amazon-move-off-oracle-caused-prime-day-outage-in-warehouse.html) “The outage, which lasted for hours on Prime Day, resulted in over 15,000 delayed packages and roughly $90,000 in wasted labor costs, according to the report. Those costs don't include all the lost hours spent by engineers troubleshooting and fixing the errors or any potential lost sales.” I assume Amazon has saved much more than that by moving off Oracle. Meanwhile, downtime effects us all: Apple iCloud down for (gasp!) hours (https://www.theverge.com/2018/10/23/18016512/apple-icloud-find-my-iphone-service-disruption-outage)!

Once you reach that number, each additional member reduces effectiveness by 10%.” Cloud Foundry Cult (https://clients.451research.com/reportaction/95834/Toc?ref=Email%3Amis): “The users we spoke with didn't just see it as a PaaS – it was the underlying philosophy of application delivery and management upon which future developments would be based. The Foundation claims Cloud Foundry saves, on average, 10 weeks of development time and $100,000 per app development cycle. In fact, in its own survey, 92% of users cite cross-platform flexibility as important. If these panelists are gaining such benefits, it's easy to understand why they are so enamored with it.” 300 VMs per admin is the magic number (https://clients.451research.com/reportaction/95810/Toc?ref=Email%3Amis): “Private clouds owned and self-managed by enterprises can be cheaper than public cloud. The magic number to beat is about $25 per VM-month at 100% utilization. If the cost of the whole stack comes in under this number, then even with the addition of labor to manage that private cloud, it should be cheaper than public cloud. Obviously, with better labor efficiency, unit costs versus public cloud are lowered further, and the relative value of benefits increases. Enterprises unable to achieve a labor efficiency of 300 VMs per engineer are unlikely to beat public cloud on price. ”Partially managed clouds have good economics. If an enterprise is able to manage just the datacenter element of a private cloud at a ratio of at least 400 VMs per engineer, that cloud may cost less to operate than fully managed alternatives. We believe enterprises could easily beat this ratio.” Related (https://www.networkworld.com/article/3313319/private-cloud/private-cloud-spending-is-increasing-not-decreasing.html): “Of that, private cloud spending [on hardware] reached $4.6 billion, an increase of 28.2 percent year over year. That's a significant increase, but not as great as the jump in spending on public cloud IT infrastructure, which was $10.9 billion, a 58.9 percent year-over-year growth.” Conferences, et. al.

Oct 18, 2018 1:12:53

Description:

Whether you’re in the Malaysian cement industry or not, there’s something for you in this episode: serverless vs. FaaS, Docker’s funding, Crossing the Chasm revisited, and GitHub actions. Sponsored by Datadog This episode is sponsored by Datadog and this week Datadog wants you to know about Trace Search & Analytics. Trace Search & Analytics allows you to explore, graph, and correlate application performance data using high-cardinality attributes. You can search and filter request traces using key business and application attributes, such as user IDs, host names, or product SKUs, so you can quickly pinpoint where performance issues are originating and who's being affected. Tight integration with data from logs and infrastructure metrics also lets you correlate these specific trace events to the performance of the underlying infrastructure so you can resolve the problem quickly.

The dogs under the desk people, plus, Elastic, Cloudera/Hortonworks, and hotel loyalty programs and breakfast buffets

Oct 11, 2018 1:16:22

Description:

Changing the “culture” at a large company is impossibly hard, few get through it. And, it’s little wonder, you’re usually asking them to do completely irrational things. In the context of Google shutting down Google+ and a small write-up of Blockbuster failure fairy tales, we spend time discussion the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” problem of digital transformation. We then talk about Elastic search and their recent IPO, and follow-up with some better commentary on Cloudera and Hortonworks merging - better than we did last week. Hotel breakfast buffet strategies and the Chase Sapphire series of cards. Oh, and before that Matt and Coté spend a good 10 to 15 minutes talking about hotel breakfast buffet strategies. Also, it’s episode #150 - yay us! Our first episode was on May 27th, 2014, where Coté’s lamp played a prominent role, and we did video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4S0_PzuYJJE&index=58&list=PLk_5VqpWEtiWnQ7od08nzkB32oT4gnDiP).

Put yet another way, company executives have a lot less power than you’d think. Related: WTF is “culture” (https://twitter.com/cote/status/1050246624881061889)? This week in IPOs: Elastic has a party, Solarwinds figuring one out (https://www.channele2e.com/business/finance/solarwinds-ipo-plan-update/). Elastic (https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/05/elastic-estc-ipo-stock-makes-debut-on-nyse.html): “The stock closed at $70 per share, representing a 94.4 percent rise.” Close of market on Oct. 10th (https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/ESTC?p=ESTC): $62.50 per share. 451 on Elastic revenue, Scott Denne (https://blogs.the451group.com/techdeals/ipo/elastic-adds-spring-to-the-fall-ipo-market/): “The developer of open source search software for IT log analysis, security analytics and other applications nearly doubled its top line in its fiscal year (ending April 30) to $160m, up from $88m a year earlier, while increasing the share of subscription revenue in its mix.” More: “Judging by Elastic’s offering, the [Q3] dry spell had little impact on investor appetites, setting up a favorable environment for Anaplan and SolarWinds as both look to price this month.” 451 on Elastic’s product, Nancy Gohring: “One of the most important messages that emerged from ElasticOn is that Elastic is positioning its software to serve as a platform for collecting and analyzing a wide array of machine data that can be used in a variety of use cases. With its recently announced APM UI and the forthcoming Infra UI, as well as the Canvas visualization capabilities, SQL-like querying and advancing machine-learning techniques, the Elastic Stack will be usable as a centralized platform for collecting and analyzing logs, events and metrics by constituents within a business including IT ops, security, executive leadership, product management and others.” So, Elastic is…an OSS (presumably) cheaper Splunk, but for general search not just IT? Or, wait, it is just IT stuff? Solarwinds: Coté hasn’t been able to parse out the Solarwinds deal. The big question is/will be, “so, did it make sense to go private, or could that have done whatever they’re doing by staying public?” Serverless and FaaS, survey shows confusion (https://thenewstack.io/add-it-up-serverless-faas/): “Despite attempts to educate the market, we still believe the word “serverless” connotes many different things, especially for the 79 percent of organizations that plan to adopt serverless architecture but have not planned to use FaaS in the next 18 months.” Coté’s old saw that “serverless” has just come to mean “doing programming on-top of cloud shit.” This is what Pivotal usually means when they say “cloud native,” versus the container kids who mean just “kubernetes,” at broadest, “containers.” Cloudera/Hortonworks follow-up: TPM (https://www.nextplatform.com/2018/10/05/hadoop-needs-to-be-a-business-not-just-a-platform/): “Cloudera has raked in $1.28 billion in revenues in the past six and a half years, while Hortonworks only brought in $808 million. Add in the venture capital of $1.31 billion in venture capital, plus $225 million that Cloudera raised in early 2017 for its IPO and the $100 million that Hortonworks raised in late 2014 from its IPO, and the total pile of cash that has come to the pair is $3.69 billion. Hortonworks still has $86 million of cash and Cloudera still has $440.1 million. But over that same time period, Cloudera has booked cumulative losses of $1.19 billion and Hortonworks has cumulative losses of $979 million, for a total of $2.16 billion. Both separately and together, these companies are burning the wood a lot faster than they can cut it.” TPM’s TAM summary, as suggested by the two companies: “The core market that Hadoop is chasing is comprised of three different segments, according to Cloudera-Hortonworks, and will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 21 percent between 2017 and 2022, from $12.7 billion to $32.3 billion. Within that, cognitive and artificial intelligence workloads represent a $14.3 billion opportunity in 2022, $4.9 billion for advanced and predictive analytics software, and $13.2 billion for dynamic data management systems (what we would call modern storage). In addition to that, the Hadoop platform is also chasing relational and non-relational database management systems and data warehouses, which is another $51 billion opportunity in 2022, for a total TAM of $83 billion. Even a small slice of this, which is what Hadoop currently gets today, could be billions of dollars by then.” Forrester on TAM penetration, Noel Yuhanna (https://go.forrester.com/blogs/cloudera-and-hortonworks-merger-a-win-win-for-all/): “We estimate that [just] 7% of organizations have completely migrated their traditional data warehouses to big data platforms. “ That’s 93% more left, assuming 20% capture for a leader, (shoddy percentage math follows)17 to 18%, I guess? Meanwhile, also from Forrester (https://www.forrester.com/report/Digital+Insights+Are+The+New+Currency+Of+Business/-/E-RES119109): “While 74% of global data and analytics decision makers tell us they will have invested in a big data lake by the end of 2017, we find that many of these are being kept on life support by the technology management shops that drove them.” Also, Forrester on HARK (Hadoop & Spark), Noel Yuhanna & Mike Gualtieri (https://www.forrester.com/report/Now+Tech+HadoopSpark+Platforms+Q3+2018/-/E-RES142699): “Distributed computing software and services that are rooted in open source Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark to store, process, and analyze data to find and use insights to improve customer experiences, create timely business intelligence, optimize business processes, and make decision making smarter and faster.” Like traditional analytics, but bigger and with more ML? 451 (Matt Aslett & James Curtis) (https://clients.451research.com/reportaction/95775/Toc?SearchTerms=Cloudera): “Although there are cross-selling opportunities and the two companies share an underlying open source foundation, there are also significant areas of product overlap and competing functionality, as well as a history of animosity to overcome.” Tamped down TAM: “Another way of looking at this is that the Hadoop market hasn't expanded enough to support the growth targets of two independent publicly traded companies, especially with the cloud providers to contend with.” Cloudera is the winner: “While the deal is being described by the companies as a merger, make no mistake that Cloudera is acquiring Hortonworks. After the transaction closes, Cloudera shareholders will own approximately 60% of the combined company, which will do business as Cloudera, with Hortonworks shareholders owning approximately 40%.” Products, Hortnworks: “Its primary product is the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), which consists of core Hadoop and some 20+ open source projects. But in August 2015, the company purchased Onyara, which was based on the Apache NiFi technology, and designed to enable users to collect, process and distribute data.” Products, Cloudera: “To date, Cloudera offers several products and while Hortonworks has adopted a pure 100% open source approach. Cloudera has a hybrid strategy, mixing open source with its proprietary tooling. The company's core offering is the Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub (CDH) – specifically targeted products are provided for data warehousing, operational database, and data science and engineering. Its cloud offering is Altus, a PaaS available on AWS and Azure.” 451 in another report (Agatha Poon) (https://clients.451research.com/reportaction/95135/Toc?SearchTerms=Cloudera), on Cloudera, June 2018: “At present, data analytics tools and offerings are driving regional opportunities with enterprises slowly but clearly moving out from legacy data warehouse platform to a new generation of data analytics platform, which is highly distributed and open standards based, Cloudera says. For machine learning and advanced data analytics, the company believes that data scientists will be the main users and strategic partners to boost future uptake. While data scientists can make use of algorithms to train the model into production data clusters, it could be a time-consuming and complex endeavor. With that in mind, Cloudera has stepped up its game by acquiring applied machine learning research startup Fast Forward Labs in late 2017, deepening its expertise in applying machine learning to practical business problems. The bigger Cloudera says it is committed to researching new techniques to resolve real-world business problems, building codes as well as providing customers with machine learning advisory services leveraging Fast Forward Labs' domain expertise.” Cloudera strategy: “Cloudera's proposition remains largely unchanged: lead machine learning in the enterprise, disrupt the data warehouse market for analytical and operational data workloads, capitalize on cloud adoption and drive innovation for simplification while mitigating data security risk. With cloud being an agent for digital transformation, the company has publicly announced its intent to lead with cloud innovation as part of the future growth strategy at the company level.” Conferences, et. al.

Now, it seems like it’s slowly moving to be the new word for PaaS, but more like the under-girding of PaaS. Also, went back to the NEMO recently.

Something like ~$360m based on trailing 6 months runrat’ed to 12 trailing. Also, likely non-GAAP reporting (not clear if it’s ACV vs. TCV), but whatever. Grind and stack: “EBITDA for that period was $56 million, nearly 23 percent year-over-year growth.” So: ~$112m profit, ~31% margins. That’s the kind of stable (they claim to run 70% of SAP apps), growing cash-throw-off that should make PE people drool on their Patagonia puffy vests: “Following last week's shareholder approval of Micro Focus' proposed sale of SUSE to EQT Partners for $2.535 billion, the transaction is expected to complete in the first quarter of calendar 2019, subject to customary regulatory approvals.” If my math (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tq65HkucftfmO7YUDpfAWEK7Eq3vb9DYfwYeuNqLQ1U/edit#gid=0) is right (it’s established that I don’t know how numbers work), clawing in all profits would pay that $2.5bn off by 2026: 8 or 10 years of holding growth and profit %.

“That was the problem: I was always Tech Matt.” The title says it all. Sponsored by Datadog This episode is sponsored by Datadog and this week they Datadog wants you to know about Trace Search & Analytics. Trace Search & Analytics allows you to explore, graph, and correlate application performance data using high-cardinality attributes. You can search and filter request traces using key business and application attributes, such as user IDs, host names, or product SKUs, so you can quickly pinpoint where performance issues are originating and who's being affected. Tight integration with data from logs and infrastructure metrics also lets you correlate these specific trace events to the performance of the underlying infrastructure so you can resolve the problem quickly.

Episode 143: Serverless now just means “programming”

Aug 10, 2018 59:43

Description:

After some rumination, Coté thins that the people backing “serverless” are just wangling to make it mean “doing programming with containers on clouds.” That is, just programming. At some point, it meant an event based system hosted in public clouds (AWS Lamda). Also, we discuss Cisco buying Duo, potential EBITA problems from Broadcom buying CA, and robot pizza. Of course, with Coté having just moved to Amsterdam, there’s some Amsterdam talk. Sponsored by Datadog This episode is sponsored by Datadog and this week they Datadog wants you to know about Watchdog. Watchdog automatically detects performance problems in your applications without any manual setup or configuration. By continuously examining application performance data, it identifies anomalies, like a sudden spike in hit rate, that could otherwise have remained invisible. Once an anomaly is detected, Watchdog provides you with all the relevant information you need to get to the root cause faster, such as stack traces, error messages, and related issues from the same timeframe.

Related, Istio 1.0 (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/07/31/istio_sets_sail_as_red_hat_renovates_openshift_container_ship/): “It is aiming to be a control plane, similar to the Kubernetes control plane, for configuring a series of proxy servers that get injected between application components.

But that evades rather than answering the question: What does the person who buys the share from you expect to get from it? The value of a stock in the market is supposed to be equal to the present value of its future cash flows, and there’s nothing about the stock itself that promises you any cash flows. Or you might say that Snap’s directors and officers have a fiduciary duty to you to maximize the profits of the company and the value of your shares, but even if that were true—it’s pretty debatable (https://www.amazon.com/Shareholder-Value-Myth-Shareholders-Corporations/dp/1605098132)—it continues to avoid the question. If Snap made massive consistent profits for decades, it would still never have to give any money back to shareholders, and the shareholders would have no way to force it to. “I own a 1/1,258,171,112 share of a massive pile of cash,” you could say, but you could never spend it.’ Improving intranet search, always a problem: Box buys AI thing (https://www.axios.com/box-acquires-file-search-tool-butterai-7d7fdd64-a633-4dfa-ae38-5b2d3186b448.html): “a startup whose software lets users search within files across multiple work applications.

Why would a company buy Docker? With “near triple digit revenue,” perhaps there’s a good business model to match the interest in free, but, in turn, why would an acquirer want to pay for free?

Episode 138: 8 Duffle bags, some permitted food enhancer and, GitHub goes to Redmond

Description:

GItHub got bought so we breakdown what it all means for devs and open source. Matt Ray offers expert tips on relocating your family aboard as Coté prepares to move to Amsterdam. Finally, we announced the first live in person Software Defined Talk meetup in July somewhere in Austin. Don’t miss it. GitHub got bought Price: $7.5bn in stock. Getting Microsoft stock now is probably good, should have good growth over next 3 to five years (the golden handcuff period, etc.). See the overview deck from Microsoft (https://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=https://c.s-microsoft.com/en-us/CMSFiles/calldeck.pptx?version=f3eef72b-35d3-95b2-4fda-73a47f805c7f). Very qualitative, not much (or any) business case numbers stuff. Will “operate independently,” Microsoft’s Nat Friedman to be CEO of GitHub, reporting up to Scott Guthrie. Does this imply Microsoft will be moving OSS stuff to the GitHub business? How does this fit with TFS, whatever “Sourcesafe” is now? Coté has no idea about the current state of that business, esp. w/r/t to git. Slides say there’s be the usual seamless integration in VisualStudio, also some marketplace thing additions (presumably, pull in GitHub repos). Don’t forget the private cloud version of GitHub, plus using it for cloud native/DevOps config storage and release management stuff.

IDC survey on digital transformation (https://diginomica.com/2018/05/30/whats-really-driving-digital-transformation-globally-idc-has-answers/) says organizations are motivated to get more “productivity” and be more competitive, among other survey findings. And, as always, “the biggest barriers are people oriented.” Get the Infor sponsored PDF (https://www.infor.com/content/analyst/Designing-tomorrow.pdf/?noRedirect=1) if you’re into this kind of thing. Infrastructure software is back (https://twitter.com/ritam/status/1002339901507899392)! Also, Amazon’s DB has huge growth. “Full Life-cycle Developers” (https://medium.com/netflix-techblog/full-cycle-developers-at-netflix-a08c31f83249) at Netflix Like SRE, but “platform ops.” Which is to say, something like, “shallow DevOps.” “Netflix created centralized teams (e.g., Cloud Platform, Performance & Reliability Engineering, Engineering Tools) with the mission of developing common tooling and infrastructure (https://netflix.github.io/) to solve problems that every development team has. Empowered with these tools in hand, development teams can focus on solving problems within their specific product domain.” “As additional tooling needs arise, centralized teams assess whether the needs are common across multiple dev teams. When they are, collaborations ensue. Sometimes these local needs are too specific to warrant centralized investment. In that case the development team decides if their need is important enough for them to solve on their own.” “we arrived at a model where a development team, equipped with amazing developer productivity tools, is responsible for the full software life cycle: design, development, test, deploy, operate, and support”…but not the infrastructure, common middleware and services, and “platform” that they run on. Just like SRE, eh? Which the post says. Use of the roads seems optional, and sometimes challenging to recruit for: ‘Netflix has a “paved road” set of tools and practices that are formally supported by centralized teams. We don’t mandate adoption of those paved roads but encourage adoption by ensuring that development and operations using those technologies is a far better experience than not using them. The downside of our approach is that the ideal of “every team using every feature in every tool for their most important needs” is near impossible to achieve. Realizing the returns on investment for our centralized teams’ solutions requires effort, alignment, and ongoing adaptations.’ Coté had dinner with Netflix tools engineer many years ago where they described exactly this. Question: what exactly is DevOps (now) anyways? Is it too expansive to be useful as a phrase, and instead a buffet of thought technologies? BMC changes PE hands (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-05-29/kkr-to-buy-bmc-software-from-bain-group-golden-gate-capital): Brenon@451 (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=95026&type=mis&alertid=1645&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_term=95026-A+sizeable+secondary+for+BMC): “Terms of the BMC secondary weren't released. However, early reports indicated that the price paid by the syndicate for BMC and the price received for BMC [$6.9bn five years ago] weren't radically different.” Same: “the software vendor that says it posts revenue of $2bn each year.” The reporters are like “I got no idea what the fuck these people do”: “Houston-based BMC builds various types of software solutions for businesses looking to manage and streamline their information.” “BMC has about 6,000 employees in 30 countries, according to its website.” “BMC has more than $5 billion in debt outstanding, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.” Annual Meeker Slide Fest: recording (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdjcdZqODoE&feature=youtu.be), slides (https://www.slideshare.net/kleinerperkins/internet-trends-report-2018-99574140).

Kubernetes Korner PodCTL #37 (https://blog.openshift.com/podcast-podctl-37-how-to-deploy-applications-to-kubernetes/) covers Helm and other deployment schemes - Very responsible Coté hasn’t listened to it yet. Nerd fight on forking (https://www.infoworld.com/article/3276009/open-source-tools/the-kubernetes-fork-open-source-purists-miss-the-point.html): Asay: “Enterprises want stuff that works. As much as we in the open source world chatter and fret about vendor lockin, enterprises have demonstrated a remarkable ability to shrug off that concern and buy deeply into Microsoft, Oracle, and, yes, Red Hat’s OpenShift.” Question: how close are we to going OpenStack on all this? Is that even a helpful question, or just trolling? “Kubernetes has, in fact, already lost the war to serverless,” James Governor (https://redmonk.com/jgovernor/2018/05/25/kubernetes-won-so-now-what/). By the time you hear this, Coté will have finally given a Kubernetes talk (https://twitter.com/cote/status/1002338318846083072). The State Of The Kubernetes Ecosystem (https://blog.spotinst.com/2018/05/20/kubernetes-ecosystem/): Overview of all the (vendor) players. “A Forrester study (http://i.dell.com/sites/doccontent/business/solutions/whitepapers/en/Documents/Containers_Real_Adoption_2017_Dell_EMC_Forrester_Paper.pdf) found that 66% of organizations who adopted containers experienced accelerated developers efficiency, while 75% of companies achieved a moderate to significant increase in application deployment speed.” “According to predictions from 451 Research, the market is set to grow from $762 million in 2016 to $2.7 billion by 2020” Important nonsense BA now part of TSA Pre (https://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2018/05/17/british-airways-tsa-pre-check/).

Scott Carey (https://www.computerworlduk.com/devops/chef-shifts-towards-app-automation-with-20-release-3677749/): “with the release of Chef Automate 2.0 during Chef Conf in Chicago this week, the company is focusing on building a platform on these three pillars: infrastructure, apps and compliance, setting the company up for wherever the future takes it.” CEO’s keynote summary (https://www.computerworlduk.com/it-leadership/chef-ceo-we-want-be-like-salesforce-3677935/).

Matt tells you how suck out some InSpec stuff from Terraform (https://blog.chef.io/2018/05/23/automatically-generating-inspec-controls-from-terraform/). How CapitalOne uses Chef (https://www.computerworlduk.com/devops/why-capital-one-completely-re-architected-its-chef-stack-on-aws-3677848/): “[M]ore than 15,000 nodes for dev, QA, and production environments, all hosted on AWS” They like public cloud (quote from 2017 article): “About 40 percent of our production workload is on AWS now. At 40 percent we are larger than Netflix on the AWS footprint, it's huge. We are not running a hybrid model - our focus is everything on cloud. There are data centre-based applications being transformed, re-written, re-engineered, thrown out, to get to cloud." Also, WTF is Helm? See: this talk from Amy Chen is really good (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQX5nokoqrQ), and this other one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZ1S2Gp47ng). OpenStack Summit So, it’s still NFV heavy with existing enterprise deploys? Plus, Mirantis us pushing for a CI/CD focus? Haven’t read the survey yet. Brief (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/24/networking_roundup_may_24/) Register (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/24/networking_roundup_may_24/) coverage (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/24/networking_roundup_may_24/): VMwware updates (https://www.zdnet.com/article/vmware-ready-to-release-new-openstack-cloud-program/), AT&T and others donate some code, Solarwinds adds in some more support. VMware likes NFV (https://www.zdnet.com/article/vmware-ready-to-release-new-openstack-cloud-program/): ‘VMware is targeting the telecom industry with this release. Gabriele Di Piazza, VMware Telco NFV Business Unit's VP of products and solutions, said in a statement, "VMware Integrated OpenStack 5 will enable customers to achieve the massive scale required to power Telco and private clouds globally, and address NFV and edge computing use cases as telecom networks evolve towards 5G."’ Shuttleworth gonna Shuttleworth (https://www.zdnet.com/article/ubuntus-mark-shuttleworth-pulls-no-punches-on-red-hat-and-vmware-in-openstack-cloud/#ftag=RSSbaffb68): “If you want OpenStack and Kubernetes support with vendor independence at a low price, Canonical is your company. If you prefer a partner, which offers a soup-to-nuts stack, but at a higher price, look to Red Hat. And, of course, if you're already wedded to VMware, you've made your choice. There's room for all these approaches to the 21st century cloud and containers.” Over on TechCrunch, in his layup (https://techcrunch.com/2018/05/24/openstack-in-transition/), Frederic Lardinois paints a picture of the current Story of OpenStack. “That current state produces fewer flashy headlines, but every survey, both from the Foundation itself and third-party analysts, show that the number of users — and their OpenStack clouds — continues to grow.” Mirantis, after $200m in funding, refocusing(?) on CI/CD with Spinnaker support, “shrunk from almost 1,000 employees to 450 today, but as Mirantis CEO and co-founder Boris Renski told me, it’s now cash-flow positive.” Boris: “I think that Spinnaker should become part of the Foundation. That’s the opportunity and I think it should focus 150 percent of their energy on that before it builds its own thing and before [Spinnaker] goes off to the CNCF as yet another project.” Caroline Donnelly (https://www.computerweekly.com/news/252441808/From-open-clouds-to-open-infrastructure-OpenStacks-evolution-continues) covers the quest to become a more general foundation for infrastructure stuff, started in 2015 with “The Big Tent” positioning. Side-note: Donnely’s and Lardinois’s articles are good example of doing good tech journalism (I mean, I always like more charts and TAM’s, but they don’t really do that over art Oath - could have also gotten a paragraph of “the kubernetes threat” backed up by usage momentum surveys - but, hey! - pretty good all around.). Relevant to your interests Coté’s three methods of dealing with grumpy people (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/14/devops_change_barriers/) when you’re digital transforming and DevOps’ing all the things, the The Register. All these GDPR emails. Oh for fuck’s sake! (Cf. Jon Collins interview (http://www.softwaredefinedinterviews.com/61).) What does Terraform do again? When is that company going to be acquired? Can IT finally deliver innovation without busting its own budget? Docker's CEO says yes. (https://diginomica.com/2018/05/22/can-it-finally-deliver-innovation-without-busting-its-own-budget-dockers-ceo-says-yes/) Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst On How He Plans To Win The Container Market (https://m.crn.com/slide-shows/virtualization/300104051/red-hat-ceo-jim-whitehurst-on-how-he-plans-to-win-the-container-market.htm). Docker, Inc. still on that cost take-out strategy (https://diginomica.com/2018/05/22/can-it-finally-deliver-innovation-without-busting-its-own-budget-dockers-ceo-says-yes/): “What we’re seeing at companies like MetLife or Northern Trust is they’re taking their app and infrastructure management cost, and cutting it in half. Let’s say that you can cut 50 million dollars out of your app and infrastructure management cost, which by the way, some of our customers are at. That’s 50 million dollars you can go spend on innovation. That’s not going to the CEO and saying look, I need another hundred million dollars in my budget. That’s freeing up 50-100 million dollars of your existing budget.” Bro. So the message is “Docker will cut $50m [annually?] out of your IT budget.” $12.5m a quarter in extra cash? That kind of shit could make quarterly numbers. Could that even be real? Bruh. Salesforce.com, Inc.

Code: SDT2018 Relevant to your interests Upbound emerges from stealth, raises $9M from GV to build a multicloud platform on Kubernetes (https://www.geekwire.com/2018/upbound-emerges-stealth-raises-9m-gv-build-multicloud-platform-kubernetes/) Another thing k8s doesn’t do…I guess? “The eight-person Seattle-based startup plans to build a platform that will let Kubernetes users interested in multicloud deployments build services that scale across multiple public clouds and help those companies deploy their applications across those environments.” DC/OS for all the DC/OS’es. It’s DC/OS’es all the way down. (I’m glad they linked to the wikipedia definition for “lingua franca.”) As Kubernetes grows, a startup ecosystem develops in its wake (https://techcrunch.com/2018/05/07/as-kubernetes-grows-a-startup-ecosystem-develops-in-its-wake/) This about 1/3 of what a good, internal strategy memo would be. Needs market-sizing, forecasts, and, well, more numbers. If it also said what action to take, you’d have most of it there. Is K8s Too Complicated?

There’s a lot of container and kubernetes news this week what with KubeCon. We discuss some highlights from there, including Google’s gVisor project, angling to make life more secure in cloud native land. We then discuss Red Hat’s Operators, Chef, and related ways to package up applications and related configuration for deployment onto cloud platforms. Plus, once again, we finally solve how to calendar better. This episode brought to you by: Datadog!

Episode 132: Capturing dumpling juice, the Pentagon selects AWS, & Thor

Apr 30, 2018 1:05:17

Description:

Eating dumplings, it turns out, is more complicated than just sticking them in your dumpling hole, as Coté found out in Bangkok thanks to a Singaporean friend (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dennis-sze-641a5b85/). We’re live-to-tape from DevOpsDays Jakarta this episode, just Coté and Matt Ray. We discuss the Pentagon’s stubbornness of (seemingly) picking just one cloud provider for their major cloud project and then have an oddly lengthy discussion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_Cinematic_Universe).

Relevant to your interests US military says “get of my lawn, you kids” to AWS mono-usage (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-04-16/pentagon-sticks-with-single-cloud-contract-but-doesn-t-say-why) ‘Rival contractors complain that the winner-take-all approach favors Amazon.com Inc., the biggest supplier of cloud services. But Pentagon officials made clear they have little patience for continuing debate over the issue. In response to a question on the “rationale for a single award for this contract,” the answer posted was blunt: “This rationale is not going to be published at this time.”’ More: “It was a decision the department made based on its needs, so adding context there doesn’t benefit us.” But, actually, it’s just one pick for now: “The contract, known as JEDI -- for the the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure Cloud Program -- won’t prevent the Defense Department from working with other cloud vendors in the future.” IBM doth protest too much? Check out Bloomberg’s layman’s definition of cloud: “Cloud services -- in which computing power and storage are hosted in remote data centers run by a third-party company rather than on-site in locally owned machines -- can make it easier for large organizations to move and integrate data across different platforms, quickly expand the data storage it needs based on usage and make system-wide security upgrades to software.” Not too shabby, and it thankfully doesn’t mention THE CYBER.

Apr 20, 2018 54:22

Description:

It’s hard to be a medium sized systems management (“monitoring”) company: you either have to niche it out and exit early, or go big.

Episode 130: CROSS-OVER BONUS! Christopher Luciano on Kubernetes & Istio - Software Defined Interviews

Apr 12, 2018 1:29:42

Description:

Why does kubernetes even exist, why don’t existing things work just as well for it? And then what kind of applications can you run on it, at least following the original intentions. Once we sort that out, we talk about the same for Istio. We also discuss hospital IT and how large companies like IBM decide which open source projects to work on. Also, Coté helps you turn eating sugar-encrusted pecans into a Buddhist moment. See original show notes (http://www.softwaredefinedinterviews.com/64) for more.

This week we recap all the important events at SXSW Interactive, explain why Netflix is not going to be an enterprise cloud vendor, discuss Microsoft's decision to open source Service Fabric and recommend never ordering the Bison Ribs.

We've been developing Service Fabric internally for Windows for close to a decade, and most of that time it was a Microsoft-internal platform, which means we have close to a decade's worth of internal Microsoft tools to migrate and processes to refine before we can put something usable out on GitHub.” Netflix could pwn 2020s IT security – they need only reach out and take (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/03/08/will_serverless_kill_the_container_star/).

Episode 124: “These pants are all too small,” or Dropbox and all the great public clouds

Mar 3, 2018 57:11

Description:

Dropbox made $1.1bn last year, which is mind-blowing. What can we learn from the way Dropbox wiggled it’s way into so many people’s lives (11m paying users, it seems) versus competitors like Box? Well, probably a lot more than where Apple, Spotify, and Dropbox run their stuff in - or out! - of the cloud, a topic we also discuss. Also, sheep-skin shoes are hot, too hot. Also, something about dtrace and zfs, I don’t know - just listen to it. This episode brought to you by: Datadog! This episode is sponsored by Datadog, a monitoring platform for cloud-scale infrastructure and applications. Built by engineers, for engineers, Datadog provides visibility into more than 200 technologies, including AWS, Chef, and Docker, with built-in metric dashboards and automated alerts.

Read more at: https://www.datadoghq.com/blog/forecasts-datadog/ (https://www.datadoghq.com/blog/forecasts-datadog/) What even is a “Dropbox”? Now that we know they generated $1.1bn in revenue (http://tomtunguz.com/dropbox-s-1/) in CY2017 (with -10% op margins, translating to a loss of $111.7m (https://www.barrons.com/articles/dropbox-files-s1-with-1b-revenue-lots-of-restricted-stock-1519420407) and actual cash flow)…we should probably contemplate how they fit in. 451 estimates a valuation at $8bn+ (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=94433&type=mis&alertid=1161&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_term=94433-Dropbox+opens+up+to+public+markets). More: “Dropbox has taken just over 10 years to go public since its founding in 2007, which we attribute to anxiety over its high private valuation, a sizable profitability gap, and the dour outlook often associated with the EFSS segment.” More from 451 (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=94433&type=mis&alertid=1161&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_term=94433-Dropbox+opens+up+to+public+markets): “Its net loss ($111m) shrank by nearly half from 2016 – a faster pace than its topline growth. Its relative sales and marketing costs are lower than most of its peers. The vendor spent 28% of its revenue on sales and marketing – half the level of Box, a fellow FSS compatriot that's half the size as Dropbox." Man, think of the shit-per diem an travel policies for last year. E.g., who knew they were so widely used by normals?! 11m+ paying users, they says (https://www.barrons.com/articles/dropbox-files-s1-with-1b-revenue-lots-of-restricted-stock-1519420407). (But (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=94433&type=mis&alertid=1161&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_term=94433-Dropbox+opens+up+to+public+markets), it’s 45 to 1 free to pay.) Do we think GDrive/G Suite is this big? I mean, it must be at least once you throw in Docs and GMail. Gartner’s 2016 estimates (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-alphabet-gsuite/googles-g-suite-is-no-microsoft-killer-but-still-winning-converts-idUSKBN1FL3ZX): “$1.3 billion in G Suite sales ranked a distant No. 2 behind Office’s $13.8 billion, according to 2016 data from Gartner.” Checks out (https://medium.com/@raj_57679/how-big-is-g-suite-within-alphabets-other-revenue-q1-2017-9823783abc97). Tech Co.’s using Google Cloud Apple on Google (https://techcrunch.com/2018/02/27/apple-now-relies-on-google-cloud-platform-and-amazon-s3-for-icloud-data/) for iCloud (but also AWS for the same), Spotify on Google (http://www.zdnet.com/article/with-spotify-google-cloud-platform-gets-its-anchor-all-in-customer/), Dropbox on their own cloud (https://www.geekwire.com/2018/dropbox-saved-almost-75-million-two-years-building-tech-infrastructure/) (see Ben’s “turns out!” analysis (https://stratechery.com/2018/dropboxs-cost-of-revenue-cost-of-revenue-and-churn-cloudy-dropbox/)). Does this matter for normals? “Dropbox is likely an outlier with its successful cloud data migration off AWS.” (http://searchaws.techtarget.com/blog/AWS-Cloud-Cover/Dropbox-is-likely-an-outlier-with-its-successful-cloud-data-migration-off-AWS) Wired’s write-up on the migration (https://www.wired.com/2016/03/epic-story-dropboxs-exodus-amazon-cloud-empire/) from 2016 Relevant to your interests Pants are sized wrong (https://www.esquire.com/style/mens-fashion/a8386/pants-size-chart-090710/).

Lots of people are interested in blockchain’s distributed ledger system as a potential way to cut out the middleman in transactions between manufacturers or retailers and their suppliers, but the number of people actually using blockchain technology for those types of services right now is quite small.” More: “The entire market for blockchain services in 2017 — and not necessarily cloud vendor-provided blockchain services — sits at $708 million, according to a report from WinterGreen Research cited by The Information. By comparison, Gartner said last September that it expects cloud services revenue will have reached $260.2 billion in 2017.” WinterGreen, sittin’ in hot tubs, smokin’ those L’s: “In that report, WinterGreen also predicts astounding growth of 757 percent in that blockchain market by 2024 to $60.7 billion, which is among the most dramatic forward-looking statements I’ve seen in a while.” The concept of the millennial is dead (http://www.channelfutures.com/channel-futures/why-are-we-still-talking-about-millennial-problem-workforce).

Episode 122: Don’t get wasted at sales kick-off, & Coté needs to stop being so pessimistic

Feb 16, 2018 57:27

Description:

It’s our annual surviving sales kick-off show. There’s some exciting developments in Coté’s life on the stage and trenchant tips from Matt and Brandon (spoiler: don’t get wasted!). We also discuss the odd trend of kubernetes now actually not being for mere mortals and then Coté complains about writing talk submissions for CFPs. Hard-hustle & shameless self-promotion Software Defined Interviews interview with Nancy Gohring (http://www.softwaredefinedinterviews.com/62).

Episode 121: Does GDPR work? Cisco/AppDynamics, Solarwinds, & Honeycomb

Feb 9, 2018 28:44

Description:

Due to Coté feeling weird (and, subsequently, being diagnosed with the flu), this week you get a curated selection of our new podcast, Software Defined Interviews (http://www.softwaredefinedinterviews.com/). There are two artisanal selected clips. First, a discussion with Jon Collins about GDPR - will it actually work, or just be another regulation eye-roller? Then, there’s a rapid fire questions session with Nancy Gohring of 451 Research - we talk about Cisco’s AppDynamics acquisition, ServiceNow, and Honeycomb. Both of these are just a tiny bit of the full interviews, which you should totally check out by subscribing to Software Defined Interviews: http://www.softwaredefinedinterviews.com/ (http://www.softwaredefinedinterviews.com/) Also, if you’re interested in the Datadog write-ups on monitoring RabbitMQ (https://www.datadoghq.com/blog/rabbitmq-monitoring/) and Java (https://www.datadoghq.com/blog/java-monitoring-apm/), check those out as well in addition getting a free t-shirt when you making your first dashboard by going to https://www.datadog.com/softwaredefinedtalk (https://www.datadog.com/softwaredefinedtalk).

Episode 120: RedHat buys CoreOS, Heptio DOES NOT have a distro - the kubernetes kids are over their Christmas hangovers

Red Hat buys CoreOS, 451 says the container market is worth $1.5bn now and will more than double by 2021, Heptio and Cisco put out Kubernetes distros.

Matt Rosoff (https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/30/red-hat-buys-coreos-for-250-mililon.html): “CoreOS has 130 employee…Docker, meanwhile, has raised more than $240 million.” 451 revenue estimates, July 2017 (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=92888), Jay Lyman: “CoreOS has about 120 employees [up from 75 reported in Sep 2016 (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=90146), “about 30 employees” in April 2015 (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=84913)], and estimated annual revenue in the $15-20m range.” Sep 2016 customers (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=90146): “CoreOS reports more than 1,000 paying customers across its products, with a solid group of CoreOS lightweight Linux clients and a growing number of Quay Enterprise and Tectonic customers.” Plus, Ibid.: “ The company says most revenue is coming from Amazon Web Services deployments, with some bare-metal, VMware and other deployments.” Good perspective on the big picture, from Al & Jay at 451 (https://451research.com/report-short?alertid=1035&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&entityId=94241&type=mis&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_term=94241-Red+Hat+acquires+CoreOS+and+a+larger+stake+in+Kubernetes+for+%24250m): “Red Hat's efforts will likely be worthwhile because Kubernetes is more than just container management orchestration software and is actually a distributed application framework that is very well timed with enterprise adoption and use of multi and hybrid cloud infrastructures.” Product description from the same: “CoreOS Tectonic wraps services – such as automated operations, application services, governance, monitoring and portability – around the Kubernetes container management and orchestration software. Automated operations have been a key focus of the latest CoreOS Tectonic update, with capabilities such as automated patching, failover and high availability and automated cluster deployment included.” CoreOS describes itself: “CoreOS is the creator of CoreOS Tectonic, an enterprise-ready Kubernetes platform that provides automated operations, enables portability across private and public cloud providers, and is based on open source software. It also offers CoreOS Quay, an enterprise-ready container registry. CoreOS is also well-known for helping to drive many of the open source innovations that are at the heart of containerized applications, including Kubernetes, where it is a leading contributor; Container Linux, a lightweight Linux distribution created and maintained by CoreOS that automates software updates and is streamlined for running containers; etcd, the distributed data store for Kubernetes; and rkt, an application container engine, donated to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), that helped drive the current Open Container Initiative (OCI) standard.” Synergy Corner! All ‘bout that k8s (https://coreos.com/blog/coreos-agrees-to-join-red-hat/): “Kubernetes is a leading container orchestration tool for organizations of all sizes, on its way to potentially becoming as ubiquitous as Linux….We are thrilled to continue this mission at Red Hat and work to accelerate bringing enterprise-grade containerized infrastructure and automated operations to customers.” But they also throw in that original mission: “our mission to make the internet more secure through automated operations.” 451 (https://451research.com/report-short?alertid=1035&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&entityId=94241&type=mis&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_term=94241-Red+Hat+acquires+CoreOS+and+a+larger+stake+in+Kubernetes+for+%24250m): “Red Hat will continue to support CoreOS customers as it integrates Tectonic and other CoreOS technology into its own offerings, primarily OpenShift. Red Hat also indicates it will open-source the Tectonic software as it has with previously acquired technologies.” More on what Red Hat will do with it (https://451research.com/report-short?alertid=1035&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&entityId=94241&type=mis&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_term=94241-Red+Hat+acquires+CoreOS+and+a+larger+stake+in+Kubernetes+for+%24250m): “Red Hat intends to leverage the CoreOS Tectonic container stack to bolster and enhance OpenShift and RHEL capabilities. In particular, Red Hat says the deal will help it to improve security of container and cluster deployments, enable portability of container applications across hybrid cloud infrastructures and further drive ease of use and automation in its software.” Combined market-share. This is based off early, CNCF surveys and such, but it’s likely a fine wet-finger-in-the-wind, from The New Stack (https://mailchi.mp/thenewstack/red-hat-takes-on-coreos?e=8cd1443862): “Our analysis of a CNCF survey (https://www.cncf.io/blog/2017/12/06/cloud-native-technologies-scaling-production-applications/) provides some answers. Out of the 34 CoreOS Tectonic users identified, five also use Red Hat’s OpenShift. Thus, the combined entity would still have just 14% of respondents using it to manage containers. Only 4 percent of Docker Swarm users said they also used Tectonic.” Wut? (https://451research.com/report-short?alertid=1035&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&entityId=94241&type=mis&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_term=94241-Red+Hat+acquires+CoreOS+and+a+larger+stake+in+Kubernetes+for+%24250m): “According to a 451 Research Advisors project survey of 201 enterprise IT decision-makers at large container-using organizations in April and May 2017, three-quarters [75%] of them indicated that container management and orchestration software, such as Kubernetes, is sufficient to replace private cloud software, such as OpenStack or VMware. “ Bad day for beards (https://twitter.com/brianredbeard/status/958455929694953473). Coté wrote a the first 451 report on them in 2014 (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=82252) - ain’t he precious! The wikibon crew says little revenue traction, and has a diagram (https://siliconangle.com/blog/2018/01/30/upping-bet-software-containers-red-hat-acquires-coreos-250m/). Some contributor boasting (https://twitter.com/openshift/status/958454802605846528): https://slack-imgs.com/?c=1&url=https%3A%2F%2Fpbs.twimg.com%2Fmedia%2FDU0dj7dW0AI5nlj.jpg More coverage: The Register (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/01/31/red_hat_coreos_acquisition/), click-slides at (https://www.crn.com/slide-shows/cloud/300098736/5-ways-red-hats-acquisition-of-coreos-will-shake-up-the-container-tech-landscape.htm) CRN (https://www.crn.com/slide-shows/cloud/300098736/5-ways-red-hats-acquisition-of-coreos-will-shake-up-the-container-tech-landscape.htm). The Heptio kubernetes distro…or not? Heptio releases it’s managed kubernetes service (https://blog.heptio.com/introducing-heptio-kubernetes-subscription-5415052ef374) (I get that right?) - how’d that Bluebox business work out? Or, wait, no: I think in this case, sometimes a distro’s just a distro (https://techcrunch.com/2018/01/30/heptio-launches-its-kubernetes-un-distribution/)….plz advise. Official page (https://heptio.com/products/kubernetes-subscription/), with a link to a PDF, even! Multi-cloud positioning (https://blog.heptio.com/introducing-heptio-kubernetes-subscription-5415052ef374) (they even italicized it!): “Just as container technology took off in large part to organizations’ move to the cloud, Kubernetes’ continued proliferation can be attributed to the growing importance of multi-cloud. Beyond the threat of lock-in to a single cloud provider — which is real — organizations need the flexibility to deploy applications in the environment where they are best suited. Kubernetes provides the right level of abstraction to deploy applications on a cloud solution and to an environment that looks and behaves the same on-premises.” # TAM: Container Cash Context “451 Research's Market Monitor expects the application container market to be worth $1.6bn in 2018 with a CAGR of 36% through 2021,” Al and Jay in the CoreOS acquisition write-up (https://451research.com/report-short?alertid=1035&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&entityId=94241&type=mis&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_term=94241-Red+Hat+acquires+CoreOS+and+a+larger+stake+in+Kubernetes+for+%24250m).

Just lookin’ to make things cheaper (https://www.axios.com/amazon-berkshire-hathaway-jpmorgan-form-health-care-mega-company-cd47db44-7ce7-493e-bc79-6065601830af.html), no big deal. No details, but a theory (https://www.axios.com/newsletters/axios-am-6e2331f2-8bae-47f0-bcd4-d0f6c8f5a204.html?chunk=6#story6): “Based on the executives who have been named to top roles at the new company, Jefferies & Co. analyst Brian Tanquilut said there is a good chance it will eventually try to negotiate prices directly with health care providers like hospitals, bypassing companies that act as middlemen.” Ben’s on that aggregation theory shit (https://stratechery.com/2018/amazon-health/): ‘The key words there are “commoditize and modularize”, and this is where the option I dismissed above comes into play, but not in the way most think: Amazon doesn’t create an insurance company to compete with other insurance companies (or the other pieces of healthcare infrastructure); rather, Amazon makes it possible — and desirable — for individual health care providers to come onto their platform directly, be that doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, etc…. After all, if Amazon is facilitating the connection to patients, what is the point of having another intermediary? Moreover, by virtue of being the new middleman, Amazon has the unique ability to consolidate patient data in a way that is not only of massive benefit to patients and doctors but also to the application of machine learning.’ The upshot of all of this, at the moment, is that there were no details given and much fan-boy speculation typed up. Which is fine, please fix US healthcare. A perfectly done story from NY Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/30/technology/amazon-berkshire-hathaway-jpmorgan-health-care.html): lots of context, much speculation, and all sorts of input.

(https://www.patreon.com/sdt) Everyone’s freaking out about tech companies. What they mean by “tech companies,” of course is the combination of Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon, and maybe Netflix. They (mostly) mean companies who are using tech to disrupt their industries (media, retail, entertainment) and using the business models of tech companies. The line is, to be sure, fuzzy, but these are not companies that make their money from selling hardware, software, or even IT services (like Microsoft, Oracle, Red Hat, SAP, Pivotal, etc.). This week, we look at one write-up of this freaking out from (https://www.economist.com/news/briefing/21735026-which-antitrust-remedies-welcome-which-fight-techlash-against-amazon-facebook-and) The Economist (https://www.economist.com/news/briefing/21735026-which-antitrust-remedies-welcome-which-fight-techlash-against-amazon-facebook-and).

Episode 118: Bad chips, garbage home IoT, & cloud spending

Jan 18, 2018 56:17

Description:

Sure, there’s something wrong with all those chips, but what exactly is it? More importantly, how would you exploit it and protect yourself from it. This week, we talk about All The Great Chip Problems. And we also discuss some recent IT spending and forecasts, including survey results going over public versus private cloud deployments. There’s also some home automation (IoT!) talk, namely, Coté needs to find the problem this great solution solves.

What are people doing with exploits? More IT spending in 2018, public cloud use growing 451 and IDC have some cloud forecast numbers out. Ent. software growth. Trad’l IT shrinking, but not too fast 451 days private cloud still the winner, but barely. 451 tracks by survey (https://blogs.the451group.com/techdeals/infrastructure-software/complexity-bolsters-valuations-for-infrastructure-software/) with plans to put workloads across the different types of infrastructure: https://d2mxuefqeaa7sj.cloudfront.net/s_EF670144310531D7873957CB4E18505EF5DF967F587843FC89C0EE55E5BFF033_1516203990094_image.png PaaS in not included (see a recent round-up of PaaS market-sizings (https://diginomica.com/2018/01/17/paas-business-case-higher-level-cloud-services-delivers-roi-competitive-advantage/), tho), but for 2019: public cloud totals ~37% (or 46.3% if you included hosted), private cloud 53.6% IDC’s tracks hardware spend (https://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS43508918): https://d2mxuefqeaa7sj.cloudfront.net/s_EF670144310531D7873957CB4E18505EF5DF967F587843FC89C0EE55E5BFF033_1516204083806_image.png Meanwhile, an analyst says Azure had a gain on AWS in Q4 (https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/12/amazon-lost-cloud-market-share-to-microsoft-in-the-fourth-quarter-keybanc.html): “Amazon Web Services had 62 percent market share in the quarter, down from 68 percent a year earlier, KeyBanc's Brent Bracelin and other analysts wrote in a note on Thursday. Microsoft Azure jumped from 16 percent to 20 percent, and Google's share increased from 10 percent to 12 percent, they said.” Also, more spending forecasts from Gartner (https://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/3845563): https://d2mxuefqeaa7sj.cloudfront.net/s_EF670144310531D7873957CB4E18505EF5DF967F587843FC89C0EE55E5BFF033_1516204339433_image.png The move to SaaS continuing: “Organizations are expected to increase spending on enterprise application software in 2018, with more of the budget shifting to software as a service (SaaS). The growing availability of SaaS-based solutions is encouraging new adoption and spending across many subcategories, such as financial management systems (FMS), human capital management (HCM) and analytic applications (https://www.gartner.com/smarterwithgartner/analyst-answers-the-biggest-challenges-for-data-analytics-leaders-today/).” Really, doesn’t that make the most sense for where to spend most of your priority? Clears out the under-brush. Perhaps there should be a split between “innovation” (customer IT) and “keep the lights on.” I often think bi-modal got lost in that distinction. Hey, that sounds like Big Data! ‘"Looking at some of the key areas driving spending over the next few years, Gartner forecasts $2.9 trillion in new business value opportunities (https://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/3837763) attributable to AI by 2021, as well as the ability to recover 6.2 billion hours of worker productivity," said Mr. Lovelock. "That business value is attributable to using AI to, for example, drive efficiency gains, create insights that personalize the customer experience, entice engagement and commerce, and aid in expanding revenue-generating opportunities as part of new business models driven by the insights from data."’ 451’s surveys show more IT spending too (https://blogs.the451group.com/techdeals/investment-banking/every-reason-to-shop-yet-tech-companies-still-empty-handed/): “fully 50% of the 872 respondents said their company is giving a ‘green light’ for IT spending. That was the highest reading since 2007, and 13 basis points higher than the average survey response for the month of November for the previous five years” The exciting world of monitoringobservability With Loggly, SolarWinds scoops up another log service (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=94096): “With the acquisition of Loggly, SolarWinds obtains an asset that was slow in getting started but has hit a patch of growth recently. As of September, we believe the company was on track to finish 2017 with roughly $10m in billings, up from mid-single digits in 2016. Founded in 2009 with a mission of offering a SaaS-based, easy-to-use logging product with helpful visualizations built using advanced analytics, Loggly had raised $47m in venture capital, including a $11.5m series D round in June 2016.” They estimate ~3,000 paying customers. Microsoft gets serious about monitoring (https://451research.com/report-short?entityid=94076&type=mis&alertid=975&contactid=0033200001wgkckaa2), pulling together it’s different things Nancy at 451 reports: “Microsoft's vision is to deliver tools that can offer a holistic view of services to application architects looking to optimize their software; performance information and debugging capabilities for DevOps and ops pros; insight into KPIs for executives; and information about customer usage to product owners. Microsoft doesn't yet have a cohesive offering for all of the above, but it has the pieces to enable it and has begun delivering on some integrations across products.” You may recall that Datadog acquired Logmatic.io back in the Fall (https://www.datadoghq.com/blog/datadog-acquires-logmatic-io/). Relevant to your interests Annual Letter from Planet Earth (https://www.l2inc.com/daily-insights/no-mercy-no-malice/annual-letter-from-planet-earth), Scott Galloway: a pretty good moral tent-pole for tech. Feel like a little kid in the container world? Welcome to the club (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/01/08/container_shock_not_everybody_is_doing_it/): “industry adoption more accurately reflected in 451 Research's survey data that pegs adoption at 27 per cent. Of those 27 per cent of enterprises that have container religion, just 52 per cent are running containers in production, according to the same survey. In other words, a mere 13.5 per cent (or so) of enterprises are running containers in production.” Finally, an explanation of that Cisco/Google partnership (https://451research.com/report-short?alertid=975&contactid=0033200001wgkckaa2&entityid=94056&type=mis): “CloudCenter is key to the hybrid cloud partnership that Cisco and Google recently announced, where CloudCenter will be used to integrate Google Cloud Platform services with on-premises datacenters. The integrated offering includes Cisco's Hyperflex hyperconverged infrastructure and Nexus 9k networking. Cisco is also leveraging its networking (CSR) and security (Stealthwatch Cloud) portfolio to ensure a consistent environment across the hybrid cloud. Google's Kubernetes container runtime uses Apigee to consume and manage APIs, as well as Google's range of cloud services, including machine learning and visual recognition. The open source Istio service management platform is key to the offering, supported in CloudCenter, providing traffic management, observability, policy enforcement and service identity and security for microservices. There will also be integrations to AppDynamics. Solution engineering efforts are underway, and Cisco and Google are working on predefined statements of work that can be executed by both companies' direct sales teams and by the partner channels. The joint offering will be fully supported by the Cisco Technical Assistance Center. The Cisco-Google partnership on hybrid cloud is non-exclusive, but Google is working closely with Cisco on the joint engineering work around open hybrid cloud.” Taking Stock of Cloud Application Platforms (http://rishidot.com/krishnan/platforms/taking-stock-of-application-platforms/): basically, he expects it to all go kubernetes.

Episode 116: Predictions &co.

Dec 20, 2017 1:01:35

Description:

What’s going to happen in 2018? No really knows, but people love predicting things this time of year. We can’t resist it so dip out toes in the same game and review some predictions from our friends at Gartner as well. Plus, a smattering of infrastructure software news and recommendations. Pre-roll SDT news & hype If you're not a dude, please take the listener survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SSCKN86) - we're all full-up on guys, need more ladies. Jan 16th, first Live Recording (https://www.meetup.com/CloudAustin/events/mzfzwnyxcbvb/) in Austin Texas - guest co-host Tasty Meats Paul. The newsletter now has two editions (https://us1.campaign-archive.com/home/?u=ce6149b4008d62a08093a4fa6&id=5877922e21), one at the end of this week coming, fools!

Predictions Coté, of course, used to do these: the last one, for 2015, at 451 (https://451research.com/report-long?icid=3305); 2009 at RedMonk (http://redmonk.com/cote/tag/predictions/) (boy, I sure was full of piss and vinegar back then); some nonsense from 2014 (https://www.bizjournals.com/austin/blog/techflash/2014/01/tech-trends-to-mind-in-2014.html); Coté: DevOps → SRE. Coté: I met someone who described themselves as a “chatbot developer” last week. The future is so bright I gotta wear shades. Ducy’s predictions (https://twitter.com/mattray/status/942834754520465408). Return to monoliths (https://twitter.com/kelseyhightower/status/940259898331238402). Survey of predictions from elsewhere Good God, man (https://twitter.com/cote/status/942834388764676099)! - something about the role of AI in appdev. “AIOps (https://www.gartner.com/doc/reprints?id=1-48R1FQY&ct=170803&st=sb)” - please, kill me now. (To be fair, I think it down-shifts to ML pretty quick-like. Still) Gartner’s mode-salad (https://www.gartner.com/doc/3829572/predicts--compute-infrastructure): “Through 2020, n-tier bimodal workloads will encompass 50% of existing Mode 1 workloads and 80% of new Mode 2 workloads.” I think this means: “50% of old applications will be n-tier, and 80% of new apps will be n-tier,” where “n-tier” means not “client/server, hosted and peer-to-peer architectures.” Serverless, Gartner (https://www.gartner.com/doc/3829572/predicts--compute-infrastructure): “By 2020, 90% of serverless deployments will occur outside the purview of I&O organizations when supporting general-use patterns.” This decade in kubernetes, Gartner (https://www.gartner.com/doc/3829572/predicts--compute-infrastructure): “By 2020, more than 50% of enterprises will run mission-critical, containerized cloud-native applications in production, up from less than 5% today.” Gartner’s PaaS PDF (https://www.gartner.com/doc/3828364/predicts--paas-innovation-accelerates), someone over there had an SEO-stroke: “Application leaders engaged in digital business transformation must master AI, event-driven design, serverless microservices, IoT and strategic integration to serve their business and customers well. Cloud platform innovation drives business leadership.” A good passage on why private PaaS is hard, from PaaS predictions piece (https://www.gartner.com/doc/3831577/predicts--application-development): “These [positive, PaaS] capabilities benefit the organizations and are a positive IT development. But they do not alone amount to a cloud experience. Their challenge is typically organizational. A private cloud requires a division of the IT organization into provider and subscribers, and establishment of a strict separation between them via a cloud services portal and suitable cross-charging model. Without a strict adherence to the isolation of providers and subscribers, there cannot be standardization. The self-service is compromised and without resource use tracking, it is hard to achieve the efficiency of elastic autoscaling and elimination of shelf-ware. In most organizations, the leadership is not committed enough to the vision of private cloud to make the difficult and high-risk investment that can stand up to the right organizational framework, policies and practices. Therefore, these PaaS frameworks have justifed their existence mostly through their support of newer cloud-native development models such as DevOps, rather than cloudiness features.” Relevant to your interests Shameless Self Promotion: best digital transformation joke of the year (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01R_QJqhz8M&feature=youtu.be&t=2m47s). Tech M&A prioritization, rough overview from 451 (https://451research.com/report-short?alertid=930&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&entityId=93944&type=mis): https://d2mxuefqeaa7sj.cloudfront.net/s_1996658A86AAF5C2B9B273C6B66098D42647E44D66FE719055C79420D4C90574_1513622598048_image.png Forrester Researcher: Containers, PaaS And Managed Private Cloud Will Drive Cloud Adoption Next Year And Beyond (http://www.crn.com/news/cloud/300096746/forrester-researcher-containers-paas-and-managed-private-cloud-will-drive-cloud-adoption-next-year-and-beyond.htm) - "It’s a waiting game for a comprehensive management platform." IDC predicts that in 2018, annual IaaS/PaaS service spending (OpEx) will be equal to new on prem infrastructure spending (CapEx) (https://twitter.com/matteastwood/status/941067595158978560) - “They” say public cloud will over-take private cloud in 2019. Meanwhile (https://www.gartner.com/smarterwithgartner/widespread-adoption-of-cloud-office-is-now-well-underway/): "In 2018, we expect 40% to 50% of business users to have moved their core collaboration and communications systems to cloud platforms. By 2021, more than 70% of businesses will be substantially provisioned with cloud office capabilities.” Last minute gift ideas Brandon: subscriptions like Spotify, NY Times - no one will do it though, no one wants to give this. Matt: experiences. Coté: cash for kids, trialling this year. Conferences, et. al.

AWS Strategy Update On Hybrid Cloud: “In the fullness of time — I don’t know if it’s five, 10 or 15 years out — relatively few companies will own their own data centers.

It will be a transition and it won’t happen overnight.” Link (https://www.channele2e.com/news/live-blog-amazon-web-services-ceo-andy-jassy/) More: ‘Is Multi-Cloud Real?: “We certainly get asked about it a lot. Most enterprises, when they think about a plan for moving to the cloud, they think they will distribute workloads across a couple of cloud providers. But few actually make that decision because you have to standardize on lowest common denominator when you go multi-cloud. AWS is so far ahead and you don’t want to handicap developer teams. Asking developers to be fluent in multiple cloud platforms is a lot. And all the cloud providers have volume discounts. If you split workloads across multi-cloud, you’re diminishing those discounts. In practice, companies pick a predominate cloud provider for their workloads. And they may have a secondary cloud provider just in case they want to switch providers.’ AWS re:Invent Preview Review ✔SaaS lunches will be eaten? ✔Amazon Kubernetes Service?

Episode 110: s/private cloud/hybrid cloud/ig

Nov 3, 2017 53:38

Description:

This week, if you can stand it, we talk about why kubernetes won (no solid conclusions are reached), the announcement around Cisco and Google, and IBM’s new private cloud stack, “IBM Cloud Private.” This week’s exegesis The Corporate Podcast, plus EBC’ing - sign-up and listen (https://www.patreon.com/posts/corporate-ebcing-15181785)! Last week we looked at The Lone Wolf Analyst, by way of Ben Thompson (https://www.patreon.com/posts/lone-wolf-15073204). This week in kubernetes Why did kubernetes win? (Nerds like to tinker, Google brand? Did the rest of us just need to buy more native advertising in The New Stack?) Cisco and Google https://d2mxuefqeaa7sj.cloudfront.net/s_209EE5C7BA94C1300EA3F28BFEF5BA18054817A141C02AC7895880D0A1E4AA6D_1509630972019_image.png Not really sure what this Cisco/Google thing i (https://www.enterprisetech.com/2017/10/25/cisco-google-join-forces-hybrid-cloud/)s. What does Cisco bring to the table? “Cisco's HyperFlex platform that includes management tools to enforce security and other policies as applications and services are released with greater frequency.” Private cloud bundling of kubernetes, Istio, all the great cloud natives. "This is what we hear customers ask for," Diane Greene. Big picture: what’s Google’s goal here? Is it really as simple as “on-ramp?” Even bigger picture: how did it kubernetes win? IBM’s private cloud stack https://d2mxuefqeaa7sj.cloudfront.net/s_209EE5C7BA94C1300EA3F28BFEF5BA18054817A141C02AC7895880D0A1E4AA6D_1509643774051_image.png So, is the “Blue Mix” brand out the mix? IBM page (https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/wikis/home?lang=en#!/wiki/W1559b1be149d_43b0_881e_9783f38faaff/page/Overview%20of%20IBM%20Cloud%20Private): “Overview of IBM Cloud Private.” Another announcement overview (https://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?infotype=AN&subtype=CA&htmlfid=897/ENUS217-466&appname=USN). “Is built on the latest versions of Kubernetes and Docker” - what that (https://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?infotype=AN&subtype=CA&htmlfid=897/ENUS217-466&appname=USN) mean? Jeffrey Burt (https://www.nextplatform.com/2017/11/01/ibm-builds-private-cloud-stack-kubernetes-containers/): “IBM Cloud Private can run on a variety of infrastructures, including the vendor’s own mainframe and Power systems, its hyperconverged infrastructure that runs Nutanix software, and IBM Storage’s Spectrum Access solution. In addition, it can run on systems from Dell EMC, Lenovo, Cisco Systems and NetApp, and can be deployed by such VMware, Canonical and other OpenStack distributions as well as bare-metal systems. The private cloud platform also includes such developer services for data analytics as Db2, Db2 Warehouse, PostgreSQL and MongoDB, developer tools like Netcool, UrbanCode, and Cloud Brokerage and open-source management software such as Jenkins, Prometheus, Grafana, and ElasticSearch.” Chris Mellor, (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/11/01/ibms_containerised_cloud_private/) The Register (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/11/01/ibms_containerised_cloud_private/): All the great middleware now in (Docker) containers: “IBM has provided containerised versions of WebSphere Liberty and Open Liberty, MQ, and DB2, plus Microservice Builder as software bundle components. For example, Cloud Private for Application Modernization provides Cloud Private capabilities plus WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, MQ Advanced, API Connect Professional, DB2 Direct Advanced and Urban Code Deploy.” Value-prop’in! “The standout aim is to help legacy apps transition to a more cloud-native style of construction and operation so that they can run inside a public cloud-like environment on-premises – private cloud – and connect to and/or be integrated with public clouds in some fashion. The destination in IBM's view, of the evolution of legacy apps is the hybrid cloud with private cloud as a stepping stone.” The white papers also mention “regulated industries” and the like. Goin’ for that enterprise cloud, hey, boy. Also: Coté’s highlights (https://cote.io/2017/11/01/ibms-new-private-cloud-stack-its-got-the-kubernetes-containers/), brief coverage from Tom Krazit at GeekWire (https://www.geekwire.com/2017/ibm-launches-new-version-private-cloud-built-kubernetes-support/). An oral history of “bursting”: from 2010 to 2017. Congress now follows you Kind of a dick move to not send the CEOs (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/11/01/facebook_twitter_google_senate_russia/). Holy Shit! “Revealing exactly what was smeared all over the internet during the 2016 elections would, we reckon, be like opening Pandora's box: it would allow citizens to join the dots between Kremlin-crafted lies, the gradual acceptance of those lies online, the discussion and even promotion of said lies on mainstream news networks, resulting in, presumably, dozens of clips of senators responding with indignation about made-up information. In short, everyone is going to look like a chump if it turns out everything argued over last year was based on nothing but Kremlin-devised myths and urban legends. Rumors, in other words, designed to destabilize American politics and perhaps install a preferred candidate in the White House.” Looks like my rep has been keeping up on Ben Thompson: ‘Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) asked: "Why should you be treated any differently to the press?" All three California outfits responded with a version of the fact that they are "platforms" and not publishers, that their content is user-created, and that they protect people's right to free speech and expression. Cornyn made it clear he was not persuaded. "They may be a distinction lost on most of us," he said.’ Speaking of (https://stratechery.com/2017/tech-goes-to-washington/)…Ben nails the analysis: “Facebook served [an estimated] 276 million unique ads per quarter, and my entire point was the same as Kennedy’s: there is no way that Facebook could ever review every ad, much less investigate who is behind them, without completely ruining their revenue model.” ‘What this hearing highlighted, though, is the degree to which the position of Facebook in particular has become more tenuous. The fact of the matter is that Facebook (and Google) is more powerful than any entity we have seen before. Magnifying the problem is that, over the last year, Facebook has decided to “take responsibility”, and what is that but a commitment to exercise their control over what people see?’ Tech industry doesn’t think/care about the effects of their products https://twitter.com/kumailn/status/925828976882282496 BONUS LINKS!

Episode 109: I’m getting Kubernetes Stockholm syndrome

Oct 21, 2017 51:16

Description:

Docker’s now into kubernetes, being the last major vendor outside of Amazon to latch the orchestration framework into its strategy. Yup, as usual, it’s pretty much just kubernetes business yappin’. This week’s exegesis We’ll be looking at (https://www.patreon.com/sdt) The Four (https://www.patreon.com/sdt) this week in the exeges (https://www.patreon.com/sdt)i (https://www.patreon.com/sdt)s podcast (https://www.patreon.com/sdt). Coté is vacillating between upset and ¯_(ツ)_/¯ $1 Class-action settlements Got my Apple iBooks pay-day (https://twitter.com/cote/status/920720718639370247)! It was $1.14. For $1.14, I don’t think any sort of crime was committed. Coffee costs triple that (double if you shop around). Sounds like a big waste of time and money. Did I ever tell you about that refund gift card from T-Mobile I got? For 3 cents? What the fuck I do with that? Soon we’ll all bow to kubernetes Docker adds in support (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/10/17/docker_ee_kubernetes_support/), official web-page with burger and brief value-props (https://www.docker.com/kubernetes), and over at (https://thenewstack.io/docker-fully-embraces-kubernetes/) The New Stack (https://thenewstack.io/docker-fully-embraces-kubernetes/). Now we can all just start The Battle of Death by a Thousand Value-props. E.g., hittin’ up that security angle hard-core (https://thenewstack.io/docker-fully-embraces-kubernetes/), talking about easily migrate-n-save for existing apps (https://thenewstack.io/docker-updates-legacy-application-migration-program/). Dave Bartoletti, Forrester: ‘said it's clear that Kubernetes has won at the orchestration layer. "There's too much mindshare around it," he said in a phone interview with The Register. "There are too many developers who just want this.”’…”Bartoletti said he expects vendors will try to move up the stack by providing security, integration, workflow, and managed services. He said Docker now will be free to focus on trying to be the best container platform for enterprises.” Looks like Bartoletti was the analyst sent around, he shows up in other coverage (https://cote.io/2017/10/17/docker-and-kubernetes/). Derrick Harris’s take (http://news.architecht.io/issues/intel-takes-on-nvidia-in-the-ai-data-center-and-docker-embraces-kubernetes-78832): “The problem is that it’s difficult to make enterprise sales when users want open source at the lower layers and to pay (real money, at least) at layers they deem more strategic. If that’s Kubernetes, then Docker either needs to support it commercially, or let someone else take all the revenue from the orchestration layer up while Docker keeps on spending money to keep the free part of the puzzle chugging. By supporting Kubernetes as part of Docker Enterprise, it now can make the argument that nobody understands containers better than Docker does, and there’s now no real reason to not pay for its enterprise version.” MTA IN DA HIZ-OUSE (https://thenewstack.io/docker-updates-legacy-application-migration-program/)! “We’ve seen 100 percent success rate for applications that meet our criteria across hundreds of Java and .NET applications (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjvQFtlNQ-M). Customers are able to see these results in five days or less. “Johnston added that some customers are able to double the release frequency of their software and cut total cost of ownership by 50 percent.” Snoopy on that shit: “MetLife applied this modernization pattern in one day to their Java application. They were able to look across their portfolio and identify 600 other applications that fit this pattern, for a 66 percent savings on total cost of ownership. That nets out to millions of dollars at MetLife. They have over 6,000 applications they want to apply this to.” Meanwhile, earlier this month, more for the whale (https://www.geekwire.com/2017/sec-filing-shows-docker-raising-75-million-funding-round/?utm_campaign=Revue%20newsletter&utm_medium=webfeeds&utm_source=feedly): “[Docker] has been putting together a $75 million funding round, which would bring the total amount of money raised by the company to $255 million.” IBM Wins the Cloud That revenue (https://www.forbes.com/sites/bobevans1/2017/07/28/ibm-beats-amazon-in-12-month-cloud-revenue-15-1-billion-to-14-5-billion/#2fc46d139d64)!

Episode 108: FIXED! MOLLE all the dongles, DevOps snipe hunting, & Docker (claims it) cuts cost by 50%

Oct 13, 2017 59:14

Description:

Has everyone gone kubernetes crazy? It seems like most buyers and sellers at least want it as an option and are, if you prefer the word, capitulating to supporting it. In past weeks most all vendors - even Oracle! - have announced support and road-maps for using Google’s container orchestrator in their cloud-native stacks. Also, Chef and Puppet have new suites of tools, Docker sets its sites clearly on reducing VMware costs, and there’s some new momentum stats on the Cloud Foundry ecosystem. Do people actually do the DEV-ops? DevOps sounds cool, but, SREs? See discussion over on Coté Show (http://www.cote.show/40). Chef launches Habitat Builder SaaS Habitat Builder for the People (https://www.habitat.sh/blog/2017/10/Habitat-Builder-for-the-People/) Adam Jacob’s commentary (https://twitter.com/adamhjk/status/917417673960644608) James Governor’s take (https://redmonk.com/jgovernor/2017/10/10/whats-on-your-plate-twelve-factortraditional-hybid-apps-and-habitat/) TNS coverage (https://thenewstack.io/chef-launches-saas-version-habitat-build/), plus, bold muscle-t choice! Celebrate it! We all succumbing to the cloud-native, even Oracle JavaEE off the Eclipse, to be more modular (again). Some deep kubernetes talk (https://www.nextplatform.com/2017/10/04/oracle-emulates-google-aws-cloud/). Chef (https://blog.chef.io/2017/10/09/habitat-builder-fastest-path-code-cloud-native/) and Puppet (http://www.crn.com/news/applications-os/300093676/puppet-launches-barrage-of-products-to-enable-new-age-of-software-automation-and-devops.htm) and Pivotal and supporting kubernetes. CF Summit EU Round-up press release (https://www.cloudfoundry.org/third-annual-cloud-foundry-european-summit-begins-today-in-basel/) - mostly more on kubernetes in the Cloud Foundry world (https://www.cloudfoundry.org/cloud-foundry-launches-container-runtime-default-container-deployment-method-cloud-foundry-using-kubernetes-bosh/). Some Istio mentioning, adding legitimacy to that effort; see Istio discussion in episode #96 (http://www.softwaredefinedtalk.com/96). James “my flight got canceled” Governor coverage (https://redmonk.com/jgovernor/2017/10/11/some-thoughts-on-cloud-foundry-summit/): “enterprises now account for more than 40% of Cloud Foundry’s membership” “Kubernetes too is seeing plenty of tyre kicking, but nowhere near the level of enterprise commitment [to Cloud Foundry] at this point.” “54% of Cloud Foundry target Amazon Web Services as a platform, that 40% of users are targeting VMware vSphere certainly [i]s” - I assume this is across all distros and OSS, which makes sense. In Pivotal land, it’s mostly on on-premises VMware, last I checked. Habitat and Cloud Foundry (http://https://blog.chef.io/2017/10/11/running-habitat-apps-cloud-foundry/) Programming Languages and Code Quality Large-scale overview of GitHub projects, their languages and their bug reports (https://cacm.acm.org/magazines/2017/10/221326-a-large-scale-study-of-programming-languages-and-code-quality-in-github/fulltext?imm_mid=0f7103&cmp=em-prog-na-na-newsltr_20171007) “The data indicates that functional languages are better than procedural languages; it suggests that disallowing implicit type conversion is better than allowing it; that static typing is better than dynamic; and that managed memory usage is better than unmanaged. Further, that the defect proneness of languages in general is not associated with software domains.” Docker as a cost-cutter Their CEO says you can slash costs by 50% (http://www.crn.com/slide-shows/cloud/300093681/docker-ceo-steve-singh-on-the-vmware-relationship-security-and-the-opportunities-around-containers-for-partners.htm/pgno/0/3). Meg Whitman says it’s more like 40% (http://www.crn.com/slide-shows/data-center/300093601/hpe-ceo-meg-whitman-on-upcoming-changes-to-field-compensation-the-impact-of-dell-on-hpes-vmware-relationship-and-why-hardware-still-matters-in-the-software-defined-era.htm/pgno/0/15). But partners make $7 off of every $1 of Docker spend (http://www.crn.com/slide-shows/cloud/300093681/docker-ceo-steve-singh-on-the-vmware-relationship-security-and-the-opportunities-around-containers-for-partners.htm/pgno/0/5) - does that math work? Scenario: I used to pay $2 for VMware (http://www.crn.com/slide-shows/cloud/300093681/docker-ceo-steve-singh-on-the-vmware-relationship-security-and-the-opportunities-around-containers-for-partners.htm/pgno/0/4), now I pay $1 for Docker (50% reduction). But it costs me $7 to get there, giving me a one time payment of net $8, and, hopefully, just $1 a year after that? (Never mind opex vs. capex GAAP-crap.) So, then: after 4+ years I’ll start saving money? (with VMware, I would have paid $2/yr., so $8 total, and with Docker over that four year period I pay $8 first year, $1 next three years, so $11 total - hrmm..where’s Excel when you need it?) Follow-up from 2011: so, Docker really is about replacing VMware…? Overall, this interview with Docker’s CEO is good stuff (http://www.crn.com/slide-shows/cloud/300093681/docker-ceo-steve-singh-on-the-vmware-relationship-security-and-the-opportunities-around-containers-for-partners.htm) for industry watchers.

Description:

This week, we look at an article from Susan Hall at The New Stack (https://thenewstack.io/kubernetes-1-8-arrives-improvements-simplicity-stability-security-storage-improvements/). Susan is a solid reporter, so looking at her piece allows us to discuss the world and machination of the tech press, what it’s like to brief them, and our imagination of what it’s like to be a tech reporter. See the much more detailed notes on this piece (https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/WP009-Just-another-kubernetes-article-3Ycdt0BnCTwnhHGzhVI7O). This week, the episode is free since we’ve been neglecting mainline Software Defined Talk. We hope you enjoy this sample.

Episode 106: Is “observability” just “instrumentation”? Or, monitoring sucks? No, you suck.

Sep 22, 2017 59:11

Description:

The DevOps kids have decided to come up with a new term “observability.” We get to the bottom of the WTF barrel on what that is - it sounds like a good word-project. Also, there’s a spate of kubernetes news, as always, and some interesting acquisitions. Plus, a micro-iOS 11 review. Meta, follow-up, etc. Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/sdt) - like anyone who starts these things, I have no idea WTF it is, if it’s a good idea, or if I should be ashamed. Need some product/market fit. Check out the Software Defined Talk Members Only White-Paper Exiguous podcast over there. Join us all in the SDT Slack (http://www.softwaredefinedtalk.com/slack). Is “observability” just “instrumentation”? Write-up (https://medium.com/@copyconstruct/monitoring-and-observability-8417d1952e1c) from Cindy Sridharan. This guy (https://medium.com/@steve.mushero/observability-vs-monitoring-is-it-about-active-vs-passive-or-dev-vs-ops-14b24ddf182f): “Thinking directionally, Monitoring is the passive collection of Metrics, logs, etc. about a system, while Observability is the active dissemination of information from the system. Looking at it another way, from the external ‘supervisor’ perspective, I monitor you, but you make yourself Observable.” So, yes: if developers actually make their code monitorable and manageable…easy street! It’s a good detailing of that important part of DevOps. Cloud Native Java (http://amzn.to/2jPJHcv) has a good example with the default “observability” attributes for apps, and then an overview of Zipkin tracing. Weekly k8s News Heptio gets funding (https://www.geekwire.com/2017/heptio-raises-25m-series-b-funding-round-kubernetes-takes-world/), now “has raised $33.5 million in funding to date.” I think we’ll cover this press release in a WP episode. Also, something called “StackPointCloud” now with the Istio (https://thenewstack.io/stackpointcloud-drops-istio-service-mesh-integration/). Mesosphere adding K8s support (https://techcrunch.com/2017/09/06/mesosphere-says-its-not-bowing-to-kubernetes/) - “Guagenti also noted that he believes that Mesosphere is currently a leader in the container space, both in terms of the number of containers its users run in production and in terms of revenue (though the company sadly didn’t share any numbers).” "I think it’s fair to call Kubernetes the de facto standard for how enterprises will do container orchestration,” Derrick Harris (http://news.architecht.io/issues/with-oracle-on-board-kubernetes-has-to-be-the-de-facto-standard-for-container-orchestration-73880). Is Kubernetes Repeating OpenStack’s Mistakes? (https://www.mirantis.com/blog/is-kubernetes-repeating-openstacks-mistakes/) - Boris throwing bombs Meanwhile, an abstract of a containers penetration study (https://redmonk.com/fryan/2017/09/10/cloud-native-technologies-in-the-fortune-100/), from RedMonk: "Docker, is running at 71% across Fortune 100 companies. Kubernetes usage is running in some form at 54%, and Cloud Foundry usage is at 50%” This update from the Cloud Foundry Foundation (https://www.cloudfoundry.org/update-containers-2017-research-shows/) is a little more, er, “responsible” in pointing out flaws. Instead it just says there’s lots of growth and tire-kicking: 2016/2017 y/y shows those evaluating containers went up from 31% to 42%, while “using” ticked up a tad from 22% to 25%, n=540. Oracle’s in the CNCF (https://techcrunch.com/2017/09/13/oracle-joins-the-cloud-native-computing-foundation-as-a-platinum-member/) club! K8s on Oracle Linux, K8s for Oracle Public Cloud. “At this point, there really can’t be any doubt that Kubernetes is winning the container orchestration wars, given that virtually every major player is now backing the project, both financially and with code contributions.” James checks in on Red Hat (http://redmonk.com/jgovernor/2017/09/21/red-hat-is-pretty-good-at-being-red-hat/). (https://techcrunch.com/2017/09/13/oracle-joins-the-cloud-native-computing-foundation-as-a-platinum-member/) Acquisitions & more! Rackspace acquires Datapipe (https://techcrunch.com/2017/09/11/rackspace-acquires-datapipe-as-it-looks-to-expand-its-managed-cloud-business/) “The reason we’re buying them is that we want to extend our leadership in multi-cloud services,” Rackspace chief strategy officer Matt Bradley told me. “It’s a sign and signal that we’re going for it.” Bradley expects that the combined company will make Rackspace the largest private cloud player and the largest managed hosting service. Datadog acquires Logmatic.io to add log management to its cloud monitoring platform (https://techcrunch.com/2017/09/07/datadog-acquires-logmatic-io-to-add-log-management-to-its-cloud-monitoring-platform/) Puppet Acquires Distelli (https://www.geekwire.com/2017/puppet-acquires-distelli-bolster-cloud-computing-automation-platform/), known for their Kubernetes dashboard. Jay Lyman at 451 (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=93381). Sizing Puppet: “The company has grown to more than 500 employees, and has estimated annual revenue in the $100m range.” Coverage from Susan Hall: “What we haven’t had up to this point is all the requisite automation for moving infrastructure code and application code through any kind of automated delivery lifecycle” and now they gots that. https://thenewstack.io/puppet-will-extend-infrastructure-automation-capabilities-distelli-acquisition/ “In May, the company launched its Kubernetes dashboard K8S. It allows users to connect repositories, build images from source, then deploy them to that Kubernetes cluster. You can also set up automated pipelines to push images from one cluster to another, promote software from test/dev to prod, quickly roll back and do all this in the context of one or more Kubernetes clusters… The Kubernetes service is offered as a hosted service or in an on-prem version. It provides notifications through Slack.” Google pays $1.1 billion for HTC team and non-exclusive IP license (https://www.axios.com/login-2487682498.html?rebelltitem=2&utm_medium=linkshare&utm_campaign=organic#rebelltitem2) Security Corner The Apple Effect? — Why BMW might get rid of car keys (http://www.autonews.com/article/20170915/OEM06/170919789/why-bmw-might-get-rid-of-car-keys) Don’t blame Apache — EQUIFAX OFFICIALLY HAS NO EXCUSE (https://www.wired.com/story/equifax-breach-no-excuse/) Is there anything to do here?

Episode 105: Kubernetes Rules Everything Around Me, VMworld, Pivotal Container Service

Sep 1, 2017 58:20

Description:

It’s VMworld this week, so there’s fresh news from the Dell Technologies universe to sort through. VMware releases it’s SDDC on AWS scheme and Pivotal announces its container service/stack, Pivotal Container Service (PKS). We discuss both, including a meandering overview of what PKS is and some theory about what enterprises actually want with all that VMware in public cloud. Also, the tragic story of airline and hotel upgrades, like pearls to tired business travelers. Misc. Australia is bigger than France (http://imgur.com/z02XGzQ). Checks out (http://www.texasmonthly.com/the-daily-post/how-big-is-texas-compared-to-other-land-masses/). Coté got the SSSS TSA search. What fun! Now you can buy kubernetes from Dell https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DIlS4bPUQAEcO6Y.jpg:small VMware/Pivotal/Google make a kubo distro (https://blogs.vmware.com/cloudnative/2017/08/29/vmware-pivotal-container-service/). Uses BOSH, NSX, and kubo to setup clusters. Will run on vSphere and Google Cloud, promises to work with other Google Cloud services, be continuously updated to be compatible with GCE containers. Also, VMware storage services and comparability with VMware systems management tools. El Reg coverage (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/08/30/google_vmware_and_pivotal_team_for_onpremises_kubernetes/), and also from The New Stack (https://thenewstack.io/pivotal-container-service-hard-wires-cloud-foundry-kubo-google-cloud/). TPM (https://www.nextplatform.com/2017/08/29/vmwares-platform-revolves-around-esxi-except-cant/): “The private PKS stack will use vSAN for storage, vRealize Automation for orchestration and governance, vCloud Director for provisioning, and vRealize Operations for monitoring. (So, in theory, one could run the PKS stack on the AWS cloud slices that VMware has partnered with Amazon to create, effectively creating a clone of GKE to run on AWS bare metal iron. . . .)” More laundry listing of the parts from Google (https://www.blog.google/topics/google-cloud/vmware-and-pivotal-launch-new-hybrid-kubernetes-solution-optimized-gcp/), that is, Google Cloud services you can use in a PKS environment: BigQuery, Bigtable, Spanner, Storage, SQL, Pub/Sub, Vision API, Speech API, Natural Language API, Translate API. A list of capabilities (https://twitter.com/cloudnativeapps/status/902674269125042176) from Cornelia’s(?) talk, and what BOSH does (https://twitter.com/cloudnativeapps/status/902607633168818176) (and, thus, does in k8 management). Use it for (https://pivotal.io/pks): “PKS™ is ideal for workloads like Spark and ElasticSearch, and when you need access to infrastructure primitives. Further, use PKS for apps that require specific co-location of container instances, and for those that need multiple port binds.” The Pod affinity thing here is for when you want to run multiple things grouped together, like with Spark, Elastic Search, etc. where you the different things go together. More value-props’ing (https://twitter.com/cloudnativeapps/status/902606759176486912): i.e., kubernetes on it’s own is hard. As Ramji points out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HErHINvyIA), PKS means you’ll get a consistent, standardized kubernetes/container technology across the Dell Technologies portfolio. Watters lays it out (https://twitter.com/wattersjames/status/902571713057001472). Positioning: guidance seems to be that PKS is mostly for large organizations, “enterprises.” PKS to GA in 2017Q4, pricing then too. Diagram here (http://www.techrepublic.com/article/vmware-partners-with-pivotal-google-cloud-to-launch-kubernetes-based-container-service/):. Some vendor exec story-time here (http://social.techcrunch.com/2017/08/29/pivotal-vmware-google-partner-on-container-project/), and Pivotal blog post (https://content.pivotal.io/announcements/introducing-pivotal-container-service-pks-the-simple-way-to-bring-kubernetes-to-enterprise-customers). So, you can run PCF and PKS side-by-side (https://twitter.com/cloudnativeapps/status/903048428581560320). See longer explanation from Chad Sakac (http://virtualgeek.typepad.com/virtual_geek/2017/08/vmworld-2017-pivotal-container-services-pks.html): “historically, [Dell Technologies’] point of view on the container/cluster manager abstraction ecosystem wasn’t clear” https://d2mxuefqeaa7sj.cloudfront.net/s_57F3D537859409EDBA712760195C49AEF69FA177BC08164311E795F7016DE1F9_1504121396993_PCF+ERT+and+PKS.png See also this pro'er diagram (https://twitter.com/cote/status/903344343003664386). Lots of emphasize on a unified, compatible approach/GTM: “We now have a Cloud Native/Digital Transformation stack where there is a SINGLE target we are furiously running towards now as VMware, Pivotal, and Dell EMC – no mis-alignment, no differences in PoV. “ Market context: (https://cote.io/2017/06/02/451s-container-orchestration-usage-survey-notebook/) You may recall Coté’s summary of the CoreOS commissioned 451 survey (https://cote.io/2017/06/02/451s-container-orchestration-usage-survey-notebook/), which linked to a 2016(?) Gartner survey (https://www.gartner.com/document/3574617) where 18% of respondents had containers in production, with 4% being “significant production” That CoreOS/451 survey (https://cote.io/2017/06/02/451s-container-orchestration-usage-survey-notebook/) had a very important footnote: the survey respondents were already running containers already. It was more about which container orchestration platforms they liked. It was hard to do conclusive ranking of container orchestrators since people were using multiple ones. But, if you lump together CoreOS’s kubernetes distro with generic kubernetes, kubernetes wins out over Docker Swarm, 49% vs. 36%. Meanwhile (https://www.gartner.com/document/3782167): “By 2020, 50%+ of global enterprises will be running containerized applications in production, up from <20% today.” RedMonk’s “developers are the kingmakers” theory (https://thenewkingmakers.com/), more (http://redmonk.com/sogrady/2010/09/09/the-new-kingmakers/). SDDC on VMware Run the VMware stack on AWS, out of beta (http://www.eweek.com/virtualization/vmware-goes-ga-with-its-development-cloud-on-aws): “For the IT and software development sectors, the deal means that VMware mainstays such as all its software-defined data center ware—vCenter, NSX, vSphere, VSAN and others—will run on AWS instead of VMware's own cloud.” Pricing (http://searchaws.techtarget.com/news/450425287/Enterprises-weigh-VMware-Cloud-on-AWS-as-vendors-pivot-cloud-strategies)? ”The three-year contract costs $109,366 per host, which would save about 50% compared to the on-demand hourly billing rate, according to VMware. Another program can cut costs by up 25% based on their on-premises VMware product licenses, as long as those on-premises products remain active…. There are separate charges for IP and data transfers, as the standard AWS egress fees still apply. Each host has 2 CPUs, 36 cores, 72 hyper-threads, 512 GiB RAM and local flash storage.” - ”the estimated total cost of ownership for VMware Cloud on AWS is up to $0.09 per VM per hour, according to VMware” More pricing info (https://www.nextplatform.com/2017/08/29/vmwares-platform-revolves-around-esxi-except-cant/) from TPM: “The base on demand price for this server is $8.3681 per hour, which works out to around $6,109 per month.” Cloud-context, from Derrick Harris (http://news.architecht.io/issues/but-does-aws-really-need-vmware-71628): “Look at the companies’ most-recent fiscal years—2016—during which VMware grew about 9 percent to just over $7 billion in revenue, while AWS grew about 45 percent to more than $12.2 billion in revenue (https://www.geekwire.com/2017/amazon-web-services-posts-3-5b-revenue-47-last-year/). It’s on pace for about $16 billion in revenue in 2017.” And, more from Derrick (http://news.architecht.io/issues/but-does-aws-really-need-vmware-71628) on public cloud companies ever elusive quest to grab on-premises workloads and revenue: “There will continue to be a lot of big workloads running inside company data centers. If AWS and Google really want a shot at owning them, they’ll probably need to get their hands (and code) a little dirty by going to where those applications live and showing there’s a better way of doing things.” It makes you wonder if a strategy for public cloud companies going behind-the-firewall is just wishful projection on the on-premise set’s part. 451 surveys a predicting (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=93256&type=mis&alertid=678&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_term=93256-Featured+Data%3A+By+2019%2C+60%25+of+IT+workloads+will+run+in+the+cloud) that by 2019, 60% of work-loads will run on cloud technologies (across public, hosted, and private), with under 25% on private cloud (hosted/managed and on-premises). VMworld, in general Round-up of news (http://www.zdnet.com/article/vmworld-2017-everything-you-need-to-know-about-vmwares-hybrid-cloud-strategy/) from Larry Dignan - lot’s of security stuff, of which Coté has no clue. And, of course, the VDI/desktop stuff. It’s like the old Project Octopus era vision of VMware. Delving into VMware financials (https://www.nextplatform.com/2017/08/29/vmwares-platform-revolves-around-esxi-except-cant/), and some product portfolio strategy typing. VIO, VMware’s OpenStack distro has a few production users, but, “for the most part customers are deploying it for their development and test environments, where programmers want to embrace OpenStack and the IT managers want to keep everything on a VMware substrate” VIO pricing: “The other thing that is new with VIO 4.0 is that it is no longer free. Starting with this release, VIO will cost $995 per server socket in a Datacenter Edition, but customers who are using VIO in conjunction with the vRealize management suite will be able to get it for $495 per socket. That is just the price of the perpetual license; reckon another 18 percent or so on top of that for annual support.” Chad Sakac explains all the stacks (http://virtualgeek.typepad.com/virtual_geek/2017/08/vmworld-2017-continued-advances-in-hybrid-cloud-diy-choices.html), how it does hybrid cloud, etc. BONUS LINKS!

Episode 104: “When I go to the grocery store, I just buy the bananas” - Amazon/Whole Goods, J(2)EE, building your own kubernetes stack

Aug 25, 2017 1:03:19

Description:

Come Monday, we’ll see what full-on “digital transformation” looks like when Amazon fully owns Whole Foods. Also, Oracle is looking to move JEE to a foundation, closing out a long era of Java stewardship: how will “open source” like this work in a mature market? We also discuss the trend of private equity buying tech firms and GitHib’s write-up of building their own platform with kubernetes and series of small bash scripts. Traveling to China Coté is a terrible work-trip tourist. AA 263, DFW to PEK (https://www.seatguru.com/airlines/American_Airlines/American_Airlines_Boeing_787-8.php?flightno=263&date=), seat 19K. Exit row seat is good, but the front part of the airplane looked good too (rows 8 to 13?). Pack some breakfast tacos. This VPN situation is a mess, rather, I didn’t prepare correctly. Sometimes Cloak works, sometimes it doesn’t. LTE seems better than hotel wifi, but the speeds are high. Amazon Whole Foods update All done on Monday (http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=176060&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=2295514), August 28th. See (https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/08/24/technology/whole-foods-amazon-lower-prices-prime.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&_r=0&referer=)NY Times (https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/08/24/technology/whole-foods-amazon-lower-prices-prime.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&_r=0&referer=) article (https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/08/24/technology/whole-foods-amazon-lower-prices-prime.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&_r=0&referer=) as well. John Mackey (http://one.npr.org/?sharedMediaId=527979061:528000104) interview. Cheaper private label (I think they were top three or five sold in US). Return items in Amazon lockers. Cheaper groceries is cool, but for us, the interesting/instructive things to watch will be how Whole Foods goes full on digital transformation (or, even more eyebrow raising, does not!). Will they move everything to AWS? true Omni-channel and digital madness. Alexa: ”You look fat in that t-shirt, Michael, would you like me to order you some organic kale smoothies from Whole Foods?” Also, the potential for a culture clash seems high. As a side-effect, expect grocers to be trying out new computer stuff more, and observe their experience. How will the razor thin margin set cope with Amazon who’s been consistently rewarded for loosing money? Walmart and Google Hub thing (https://www.digitaltrends.com/home/google-walmart-voice-ordering/), Andrew on the AI winter (https://twitter.com/littleidea/status/900577868383637504). The Undying J(2)EE Oracle looking to open source it (https://adtmag.com/articles/2017/08/17/java-open-source.aspx), move it to a foundation. This worked out relativly OK for Java proper. It was hella weird, though, and I’m not sure the OSS version ever gained traction: maybe for, like, whatever Google, AWS, and Azure’s JRE is. Using this as a competitive ¯_(ツ)_/¯ is dicey, most people who compete here do open core themselves…so you can’t really say it’s bad; and if Oracle’s goal is to move it away from Oracle, you can’t say that Oracle is mismanaging it, etc. John Waters’ round-up of opinions (https://adtmag.com/articles/2017/08/23/java-open-source.aspx), pretty predictable. Steve Yegge’s Kotlin Writeup (https://steve-yegge.blogspot.com.au/2017/05/why-kotlin-is-better-than-whatever-dumb.html), The RedMonk Programming Language Rankings: June 2017 (http://redmonk.com/sogrady/2017/06/08/language-rankings-6-17/). Kubernetes at GitHub Just a few bash scripts (https://githubengineering.com/kubernetes-at-github/), eh? Here, hold my beer (https://thenewstack.io/github-goes-kubernetes-tells/). Real world discussion about moving one of their most popular services to Kubernetes. Sounds like the real deal, but there are a few bumps in the road. # PE to do 25% of tech M&A At least the analysis (https://blogs.the451group.com/techdeals/investment-banking/meet-the-new-buyer-of-your-tech-company/) confirms this notion. That said, the underlying numbers are weird: “Between direct acquisitions and deals done by portfolio companies, PE firms are on pace to purchase roughly 900 tech companies in 2017.” Who exactly are these 900 tech companies? Speaking of, a PE firm bought ThoughtWorks. ICO stuff (http://www.investopedia.com/terms/i/initial-coin-offering-ico.asp), Coté is confused. BONUS LINKS! Not covered in show. Alibaba Dwarfs Amazon That’s a lot of revenue growth (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/alibabas-revenue-growth-dwarfing-amazon-michael-spencer). Not on the cloud computing side yet, but definitely on the retail side. Coté: what’s the deal with Alipay being so hard to setup for Yankees? They really, really want a bankcard.

Episode 103: AI is no longer limited by the garbage that is UNIX

Aug 17, 2017 57:15

Description:

AWS plods on with new capabilities, this time with an AI and enterprise app migration focus, plus, AI: is it actually a thing? We also discuss Microsoft acquiring Cycle Computing and how HPC fits into cloud, also what exactly HPC is and how you measure vibrations passing through a human torso. But most importantly, we’re joined by Andrew Clay Shafer (https://twitter.com/littleidea) in this episode, standing in for Brandon. Removing rebel-slaver memorials Good job (https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/08/16/us/baltimore-confederate-statues.html), Old Bay land. There’s more cities too (https://www.axios.com/what-other-states-are-doing-with-confederate-era-statues-2472806400.html) on the case too. You like white papers? We got white papers Four new Pivotal white papers (https://content.pivotal.io/white-papers/running-microservices-on-pivotal-cloud-foundry): CI/CD, microservices, PCI (wake up! wake up!), and The Scary Clam (BOSH). We discuss them with the co-author of all of them on this week’s Pivotal Conversations. (https://soundcloud.com/pivotalconversations/pci-bosh-cicd-and-microservices-whitepapers-galore-with-jared-ruckle) Also, check out the Members only podcast if you like white papers, which you probably do, because you’re listening to this bullshit.

Jul 21, 2017 1:02:33

Description:

“Which chasm is being leaped by this hot dog app?” Sniffing out a huge market in hot dog apps, Amazon might start a messaging app. Also, Google has their ant-data gravity device out and Basho seems to be shutting down. We discuss the wonders of Snap’s hot dog app, the mystery of Amazon’s lack(?) of brand allegiance, and giving up on kale. “Share price down? I gotcha bro.” Dancing Hot Dog (https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/talkingtech/2017/07/11/snapchat-hotdog-meme-explained/468211001/). Amazon to Start a Messaging App Link (https://www.theverge.com/2017/7/16/15978920/amazon-anytime-messaging-app-rumor) I get the whole need to control networks, but it seems like we’ve kinda saturated a lot of these (Allo, is this thing on?). Why not just buy Slack? (Wasn’t that a rumor (http://www.businessinsider.com/amazon-interested-in-buying-slack-2017-6)? Could this be that diapers.com-style retaliation.) 80m Prime customers Twitch and “Stimpy.” The pair of people doing Minecraft. @profgalloway Uber driver on Whole Foods acquisition.

So, by “data,” they mean not only CSV files, but also VM images? HRM! Data gravity, from Dave McCrory (https://blog.mccrory.me/2010/12/07/data-gravity-in-the-clouds/). Someone finally made a data gravity chart: https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-SnFabcStXhM/WW4SEhj6adI/AAAAAAAAEIE/wd6Yqlbt9FELUxsvTc2F92GZDZq2I-_6QCLcBGAs/s640/transfer-appliance-2.png Rackspace managing Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Google Cloud, etc. Brandon Butler summerizes (https://twitter.com/BButlerNWW/status/887367272263766020) Techcrunch on the announcement (https://cote.io/2017/07/18/rackspace-partners-with-pivotal-to-launch-managed-services-for-cloud-foundry/) List of core stuff (http://www.zdnet.com/article/rackspace-launches-pivotal-cloud-foundry-managed-service-spins-up-managed-google-cloud-platform-beta/): Management of upgrades, releases, and integration of services. Multiple cloud options with Rackspace managing Pivotal Cloud Foundry across private clouds and Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, OpenStack. Support and service level agreements with 99.99 percent uptime and 15 minute response on emergency issues. PCF services put another way (http://sdtimes.com/rackspace-pivotal-cloud-native-app-development/): “...on any public or private cloud as well as on customer-owned infrastructure…. The Managed Pivotal Cloud Foundry solution will feature 24/7 management for troubleshooting, managing updates, feature releases, and integration with various services; multi-cloud capability; and on-demand expertise for handing version updates, feature enhancements and other technical updates.” Check out dem success numbers: “Fortune 500 customers using Pivotal Cloud Foundry to build, deploy, and run their legacy and cloud-native apps have experienced 2,000 percent increase in developer productivity, as well as a 50 percent reduction in IT costs due to platform automation” Basho Shuts it Down “The Reg was obviously keen (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/07/13/will_the_last_person_at_basho_get_the_lights_oh_too_late/) to put the claims in this story to Basho, but we’ve struggled to find anyone still working at the company to answer us.” Kafka, Casandra - WTF is going on in NoSQL-land, is this shit done yet? Sep. 2016 451 profile (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=90267): “While open source did not fully disappear, the company's primary focus moved from a support and services model to a subscription-based model. Today, Basho reports that support and services make up 10-12% of total revenue, with subscriptions taking up the rest.” “In 2015 Basho cited more that 200 customers and approximately 120 employees. Basho reports similar numbers this time around, except with a higher average deal size among its customer base. Average deal size is greater than $100,000, with high single-digit-customer deals exceeding $1m in total contract value. From 2014-2015, Basho reported a 50% increase in total contract value, a 45% increase in billings and a 50% increase in growth revenue.” Let’s do math...so...oh wait, left my Monte Carlo simulator in my other car. Products: “While both products share some underlying commonalities, they both address certain use cases. Riak KV is a key-value-based NoSQL database promoted generally to address use cases for content storing of session data, log file data, profile data and chat messaging data, particularly with gaming and gambling applications. Basho points out the product's resiliency and scaling capabilities, with integrations to Spark and Redis. Riak TS, on the other hand, is a database geared toward time-series data, with an emphasis on IoT use cases. Specifically, Riak TS can be used for gathering weather, seismic and traffic data, as well as for financial trading data. Time-series data has more structure, so Basho has added functionality to describe the data schema and the ability to query the data with SQL.” Coté was on Speaking in Tech Listen in (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/07/19/speaking_in_tech_episode_270/) BONUS LINKS!

Episode 99: Private cloud is the Reuben sandwich of clouds, or, Shafer’s Theory of (Private) Cloud

Jul 14, 2017 1:00:28

Description:

Microsoft will ship it’s private cloud stack, Azure Stack, in September. Will this work? Will people buy it? What could you even put in that cloud? You can feel that pull people have towards private cloud, so we’re looking forward to what happens. On a related topic, by our reckoning, kubernetes to small to have already fallen. Also: the elusive Baltimore accent, Oracle and containers, and recommendations. Meta, follow-up, etc. Where does Matt Ray find all these stories?

Watching The Keepers, and it’s reminding me of John Water movies, but I can’t figure out the patterns of the accent. Season three of The Wire has samples. Oracle Enters the OCI-runtime with Railcar - Oracle, the dark-horse of The Container Wars Link (https://thenewstack.io/oracle-opens-oci-container-runtime) Rust! Also Smith and Sidecar Oracle requires joint copyright assignment though… Azure Stack, coming in September Charges by consumption (https://venturebeat.com/2017/07/10/microsoft-azure-stack-hardware-available-to-order-ships-in-september/) - how MIPS-y! “Compute charges start at .8 cents per virtual CPU per hour and go up from there, while storage starts at .6 cents per GB per hour. Those charges will be included in customers’ invoices for their overall use of Microsoft’s public cloud platform.” Hardware via partners: “The exact pricing for Azure Stack hardware, including support contracts, will be up to each individual manufacturer. Microsoft is working with Dell EMC, Lenovo, HPE, Cisco, and Huawei to make the hardware available, and the first machines should be available in September.” IDC estimates private cloud HW at $34bn or so runrate (based on 3Q2016 estimates) (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/01/16/worldwide_quarterly_cloud_it_infrastructure_tracker_q3_2016/), with 8% q/q growth. So, not too shabby there. This doesn’t include software, Microsoft’s take. Scott Guthrie (https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/07/10/interview_with_microsofts_scott_guthrie/?page=2): “We talked to lots of customers who said, please don’t do that [allow so much customization that it's hard to debug problems]. The model we came up with instead was to work with a large spectrum of hardware providers, HP, Dell, Lenovo, Cisco and Huawei. Those are the five largest server manufacturers in the world. They will have systems that start with three nodes, not massive big purchases, that you can unbox and plug in. And have a fully working cloud in a day or two. Regardless of whom you call, we own the whole solution.” Pivotal Cloud Foundry will run on it (https://rcpmag.com/articles/2017/07/10/azure-stack-partner-preorders.aspx) Microsoft has a rocky road of delivering on private cloud. But, I’d wager the get it this time. We discussed this on the most recent Pivotal Conversations (https://soundcloud.com/pivotalconversations/its-private-cloud-all-over-again), along with other delightful ephemera. K8s Days May Be Numbered Matt Asay strikes again! (http://www.infoworld.com/article/3204597/open-source-tools/kubernetes-days-may-be-numbered-as-open-source-changes.html) Funny how OpenStack is now a cautionary tale. See Coté’s weasly, non-position on OpenStack in his May Register column (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/05/22/window_closing_on_openstacks_future/). I thought Cote’ was going to write this one up? (see below) “Whitepaper review” a la The Weeds! You have to be careful how you read that 451 survey. On Asay’s 71%, Coté wrote (https://cote.io/2017/06/02/451s-container-orchestration-usage-survey-notebook/): On that note, it’s easy to misread the widely quoted finding of “[n]early three-quarters (71 percent) of respondents indicated they are using Kubernetes” as meaning only Kubernetes. Actually, people are using many of them at once. The report clarifies this: “The fact that almost 75% of organizations reported using Kubernetes while the same group also reported significant use of other container management and orchestration software is evidence of a mixed market.” Read: they’re trying everything. Nothing has won yet. Proving Asay’s point, but also defanging his link-bait lead. “It seem far-fetched that Kubernetes could be heading for a fall” - there is no fall to be had because ascension hasn’t yet begin. The core base of 201 people are organizations already using containers, so it doesn’t include organizations not using containers. In a broader survey (where, presumably, not every enterprise was already using containers), of 300+ enterprises, production container use was: 19% in initial production, 8% were in broad production implementation. This isn’t to say there hasn’t been huge growth in this space, but it’s the huge growth of small numbers. This survey (though sponsored by CoreOS - I’m always suspicious of sponsored surveys, having worked on them myself!) is definitely worth paying attention to (as well as ongoing 451 and Gartner work here). Just make sure you read it right and don’t get too excited. See Coté’s Notebook for more (https://cote.io/2017/06/02/451s-container-orchestration-usage-survey-notebook/). (Related: I’ve been thinking we should do special, “paid members only” [in Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/sdt)?] “whitepaper review” episodes. Because, let’s be honest: only people who liked us enough to pay would be interested in that.) Alright, now some vendor-sports: So, can a vendor be successful if they “chase” the standards? Do you need to be in OpenWhisk, and OCI shit to operate in this space? Do you need to be Java EE compliant? There may be no money in OSS, but maybe it’s the kingmaker, to steal O’Grady’s line (http://amzn.to/2sVtmms). BONUS LINKS! Not covered in show. Could Facebook run on AWS? Lots of fun speculation with sizes of services and numbers of servers (http://blog.sqlizer.io/posts/facebook-on-aws/). From now on, this is the only content to send to people asking about running private cloud. “In the real world it clearly wouldn’t make sense for Facebook to migrate over to AWS.“ First of all (https://youtu.be/X9ELENWZqLE)... As John Willis would say, “I wanna be Ashlee Vance when I grow up.” Look at that guy: he’s kickin’ it no undershirt with the button-up style. Writes for Bloomberg, and only let’s just enough sass through in his tone to keep his broad, concise appeal but still have style that harkens back to his Register days. And he wrote that Elon Musk book. CASH MONEY! Second: “serverless is someone else’s server” manifest in 3D Third, a lot of people ask me, “Coté, how do I get a job like yours?” Writing a lot of posts like this is one answer. Thriving in a “Post AWS World” Link (https://www.packet.net/blog/how-to-thrive-in-a-post-aws-world/) “Why You Can Have the Advantages and Still Not Win” Touches on some of the previous conversations of anti-trust, how do you operate with a Goliath in your market? Distributions are Becoming Irrelevant Link (https://blog.flameeyes.eu/2017/06/distributions-becoming-irrelevant/) “The distribution users are, for most of the biggest projects, sysadmins.” Nice history of how developers and distros have long been at odds. Coté: I recall reading this. Did I get the summary right? gems show that people will subvert the gate-keeper of being in the distro, thus, there is no power of a distro: people will just assemble whatever they want. Docker x10’s this. Linux distro people fight too much and are, sort of, bags of dicks that are making the evolution of distros slow and further irrelevant. Hey, guys, “can’t we all just get along?” Future of Serverless? Link (https://www.morethanseven.net/2017/06/26/predictions-for-the-direction-of-serverless-platforms/) - that’s a helluva headline..

Jul 6, 2017 57:11

Description:

Looks like we’ll be getting cheaper organic food what with Amazon buying Whole Foods. What exactly is the strategy at play here, though?

Episode 96: An AWS private cloud strategy, kubernetes aplenty, microservices by yaml, & detailed hot-dog creature analysis

Jun 3, 2017 1:07:01

Description:

The cat-nip of Mary Meeker's Internet Trends report is out this week so we discuss the highlights which leads to a sudden discussion of what an Amazon private cloud product would look like. Then, with a raft of new container related news we sort out what CoreOS is doing with their Tectonic managed service, what Heptio is (the Mirantis of Kubernetes?), and then a deep dive into the newly announced Istio which seems to be looking to create a yaml-based(!) standard for microservices configuration and policy and, then, the actual code for managing it all. Also, an extensive analysis of a hot-dog display, which is either basting itself or putting on some condiment-hair. Alternate Titles I've seen this hot-dog before. I’ve been doing this since dickity-4 I’m sticking with the Mary Meeker slides, you nerds go figure it out Mid-roll Pivotal Cloud-native workshop in DC, June 7th (http://connect.pivotal.io/Cloud-Native-Strategy-Workshop-DC.html). LOOK, MA! I PUT IN DATES! DevOpsDays Minneapolis, July 25 to 26th: get 20% off registration with the code SDT (https://devopsdays-minneapolis-2017.eventbrite.com?discount=SDT) (Thanks, Bridget!).

Internet Trends 2017 300 plus slides of charts (http://www.kpcb.com/internet-trends) Computes! Coté’s notebook (https://content.pivotal.io/blog/analysis-of-mary-meeker-s-internet-trends), summary of summary: Google and Facebook make a lot of ad money. The Kids like using smart phones, the olds like using traditional telephones. One of them will die sooner. Voice, image recognition, etc. China is pretty much a mature market, and it’s huge. India has potential, but doing business there is hard and you need more Internet in a pocket rollout. The public/private cloud debate is still far from over. But, AWS, Microsoft, and Google have pretty much won. Bonus: there’s surprisingly little funding and exits this year. Would Amazon sell some private clouds? Isotoner and Hephaestus - All the new container orchestration poop Coté: Catching up on all this week's container poop & as always, my first reaction is “oh, I thought the existing stuff did all that already..so." Managed service for Tectonic as a Service (https://thenewstack.io/coreos-takes-cloud-portability-tectonic-release/) - so, keeping your Kubernates cluster software updated? Presumably enforcing config, etc? However, not all done, still working on the complete solution. But, there’s an etcd thing ‘As a first step, Tectonic 1.6.4 will offer the distributed etcd key-value data store as a fully managed cloud service. “It’s the logical one to offer first because it is everything else gets built on it,” Polvi explained. The data store “guarantees that data is in a consistent state for very specific operations,” he said, referring to how etcd can be essential for operations such as database migrations.’ Another etcd description (https://blog.heptio.com/core-kubernetes-jazz-improv-over-orchestration-a7903ea92ca): “etcd is a clustered database that prizes consistency above partition tolerance… Interestingly, at Google, chubby is most frequently accessed using an abstracted File interface that works across local files, object stores, etc. The highly consistent nature, however, provides for strict ordering of writes and allows clients to do atomic updates of a set of values. So, you need locks for - dun-dun-dun! - transactions! Queue JP lecturing me in 2002. Then there’s Istio (http://blog.kubernetes.io/2017/05/managing-microservices-with-istio-service-mesh.html): Istio (https://istio.io/)?! Whao! Check out the exec-pitch (https://istio.io/blog/istio-service-mesh-for-microservices.html): “ Istio gives CIOs a powerful tool to enforce security, policy and compliance requirements across the enterprise.” And Google (https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2017/05/istio-modern-approach-to-developing-and.html): “Through the Open Service Broker model CIOs can define a catalog of services which may be used within their enterprise and auditing tools to enforce compliance.” I love their idea of what a CIO does. “An open platform to connect, manage, and secure microservices“ SDN++ overlay for container orchestrators from Google, IBM & Lyft - once you control the network with the “data plane,” you add in the “control plane” (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/what-is-istio/overview.html#architecture) which allows you to control the flow and shit of the actual microservices. Tackling the “new problems emerge due to the sheer number of services that exist in a larger system. Problems that had to be solved once for a monolith, like security, load balancing, monitoring, and rate limiting need to be handled for each service.” And, you know, all the agnostic, multi-cloud, open stuff. Thankfully, they didn’t use a bunch of garbage, nonsense names for things. Let’s look at the docs (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/what-is-istio/overview.html) (BTW, can you kids start just putting out PDFs instead of only these auto-generated from markdown web pages?): First of all, these are good docs. Monkey-patching for the container era: “You add Istio support to services by deploying a special sidecar proxy throughout your environment that intercepts all network communication between microservices, configured and managed using Istio’s control plane functionality.” The future! Where we all shall live! “Istio currently only supports service deployment on Kubernetes, though other environments will be supported in future versions.” Problems being solved, aka, “ways you must be this tall to ride the microservices ride”: “Its requirements can include discovery, load balancing, failure recovery, metrics, and monitoring, and often more complex operational requirements such as A/B testing, canary releases, rate limiting, access control, and end-to-end authentication.” Also: Traffic Management (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/traffic-management/overview.html), Observability, Policy Enforcement, Service Identity and Security. Does it have the part where it reboots/fixes failed services for you? So: you monkey-patch all this shit in (er, sorry, “sidecar”), which controls the network with SDN shit, Istio-Manager + Envoy (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/traffic-management/overview.html) does all your load-balancing/circuit breaker (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/traffic-management/handling-failures.html)/canary/AB shit, service discovery/registry, service versioning (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/traffic-management/request-routing.html#service-model-and-service-versions) (i.e., running n+1 different versions of code - always a pretty cool feature), configuring “routes,” what connects to what (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/traffic-management/rules-configuration.html), I don’t think it provides a service registry/discover service (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/traffic-management/load-balancing.html)? Maybe just a waffer thin API (“a platform-agnostic service discovery interface”)? Question: what does this look like in your code? The (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/policy-and-control/mixer.html) thing 12 factor-style passes a configuration into your actual code. Here, you’re adding a bunch of name/value pairs (which can be nested) and also translating them to the name/value pairs that your code is expecting...on an HTTP call? Executing a command in your container? As ENV vars? And then, I think you finally get ahold of the network to reply back with some HTML, JSON, or some sort of HTTP request by (https://istio.io/docs/tasks/ingress.html)., So, big questions, aka, Coté mental breakdown that only Matt Ray can cure: Er...so this all really is a replacement for the VMware stack, right? And OpenStack? Or do you still need those. What the fuck is all this stuff? It just installs the Docker image on a server? And then handles multi-zone replication, and making sure config drift is handles (bringing up failed nodes, too)? So, it’s just cheaper and more transparent than VMware? What’s the set of shit one needs? Ubuntu, Moby Engine (?), Moby command line tools, etcd? Actuality kubernetes code? What’s Swarm do? And then there’s monitoring, which according to Whiskey Charity, is all shit, right? Where’ my fucking chart on this shit? Please write two page memo for the BoD by 2pm today. Meanwhile: Oracle’s cool with it (https://thenewstack.io/oracle-joins-kubernetes-fray/), “WTF is a microservice” (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14414031), compared to SOA/ESB and RESTful (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1441150), and James Governor tries to explain it all (http://redmonk.com/jgovernor/2017/05/31/so-what-even-is-a-service-mesh-hot-take-on-istio-and-linkerd/).

There are other 'cloud IDEs,' including Codeanywhere, CodeRun Studio, Neutron Drive and ShiftEdit.

Episode 94: The Donnie Berkholz Episode, "Freedom in health-care: a regular 'heck of a job, Comey' situation," DevOps & security, & Canonical's IPO ambitions

May 17, 2017 59:35

Description:

In a too rare spate of social commentary, we start talking about the price of hipster avocados in Australia and US health insurance. With one of our favorite analysts moving over the enterprise side, we talk about what it'd be like going through that door. We then wrap up talking about Canonical's IPO talk, related OpenStack market discussion, and then use CyberArk's acquisition of Conjur to discuss the state of privileges access management (PAM). We end, as always, with recommendations, including some CostCo discussion.

Donnie Berkholz at Carlson Wagonlit He Tweetered it (https://twitter.com/dberkholz/status/862706228127965184): "to help them with their DevOps journey." He's a VP! (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dberkholz/) - exec level #AchievementUnlocked He says: " With an all-new CEO and CPO/CTO, we're making a major pivot to become a software company focused on travel, rather than a travel agency with some apps." It'll be fun to see (hopefully!) what his group actually procures, uses, and does.

In particular, "Ubuntu has been gaining more customers on the big five public clouds." 5? Still, there is "no timeline for the IPO." First, Shuttleworth wants all parts of the slimmed down Canonical to be profitable. Then "we will take a round of investment." After that, Canonical will go public. The S1 filing is going to be fascinating. Mirantis still into OpenStack, Coté was straigh-up wrong (https://techcrunch.com/2017/04/19/mirantis-launches-its-new-openstack-and-kubernetes-cloud-platform/): "The new platform allows users to deploy multiple Kubernetes clusters side-by-side with OpenStack — or separately."

Coté talked with a CyberArk SE at DevOpsDays Austin, they had a booth! 451 report from Garrett Bekker (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=92456&type=mis&alertid=473&contactid=0033200001wgKCKAA2&utm_source=sendgrid&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=market-insight&utm_content=newsletter&utm_term=92456-A+whiff+and+a+homer%3A+CyberArk+misses%2C+but+adds+DevOps+security+with+Conjur+pickup): "privileged access management (PAM)" "Conjur [founded in 2013] marks CyberArk's third acquisition, following the 2015 pickups of endpoint security vendor Cybertinel for an undisclosed sum and Windows least privileged management and application whitelisting firm Viewfinity for $30m. CyberArk paid $42m in cash and we estimate a multiple slightly north of 10x trailing revenue, potentially boosted by a competitive bid. Once the transaction closes, 20 Conjur employees will join CyberArk." Conjur's "three core products are Privileged Access Management for managing 'secrets' such as SSH keys, Dynamic Traffic Authorization for controlling and brokering access to resources, and Compliance Monitoring for real-time reporting." Founded in 1999, CyberArk "went public in September 2014 and is currently valued at about $1.7bn, with 2016 revenue of $216m." JJ on avoiding SSH (http://www.cote.show/21), Coté Show #21.

GNU GPL Stands Up In Court Keith Collins, Quartz write-up (https://qz.com/981029/a-federal-court-has-ruled-that-an-open-source-license-is-an-enforceable-contract/). Appears willful, embedding GPL software implicitly accepts the license. It's over (http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=98d5ec53-ce49-40fc-a2e4-7a1c84a2aa46): "Ghostscript—an interpreter for the PostScript language and the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF)." It has dual-licensing, a la MySQL and friends. "Hancom issued a motion to dismiss the case on the grounds that the company didn't sign anything, so the license wasn't a real contract." "[Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley] denied the motion, and in doing so, set the precedent that licenses like the GNU GPL can be treated like legal contracts, and developers can legitimately sue when those contracts are breached." This has come up for Artifex as well, back in 2008 (https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20081104/1621182738.shtml). Not sure what this lawyer-cant is (http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=98d5ec53-ce49-40fc-a2e4-7a1c84a2aa46), but: "A few aspects of the decision are of particular interest to the open source community. For example, Hancom argued that Artifex could not plead breach of contract for violation of GPL and could not request specific performance of the terms of GPL. Hancom also argued that copyright damages were not available because the GPL grants royalty-free rights." More: "Here, in denying a motion to dismiss, the District Court only holds that the claims may proceed on the theories enunciated by Artifex, not necessarily that they will ultimately succeed."

Check out Coté's summary of a recent Brian Gracely post on the OpenShift momentum (https://cote.io/2017/05/01/red-hat-openshift-momentum-highlights/). Cloud Rules Everything Around Me As summarized by Derrick (http://news.architecht.io/issues/architecht-daily-it-s-earnings-and-ipo-season-for-cloud-and-cloudera-55782) (via CNBC (http://www.cnbc.com/2017/04/27/microsoft-azure-growing-faster-than-aws-google-cloud-behind.html): AWS brought in $3.66 billion in revenue, which was up 42 percent from last year. However, year-over-year growth dropped from last year’s first quarter. Microsoft’s “Intelligent Cloud” unit, which includes Azure, grew 11 percent, to $6.8 billion. Microsoft doesn’t break out Azure revenue specifically, but said Azure saw a 93 percent increase in revenue over last year. Google Cloud is buried somewhere in “Other Bets” on Alphabet earnings, a segment that grew 50 percent to $3.1 billion. What’s the Halo Effect on this? It’s easy to blame the big vendors for shying away from public cloud but it was some scary shit, business-case wise, back in 2008. Verizon sells cloud stuff to IBM (http://www.zdnet.com/article/ibm-to-snap-up-remnants-of-verizons-cloud-managed-hosting-business/). Docker is now Moby, wait what?

A commercial district of some synthetic user testing thing? "Through SOASTA solutions, Akamai customers will then be able to test optimizations at scale prior to deployment and validate the business impact of those optimizations once they are live in production.

We discuss the continual rise of Kubernetes, with Amazon as seemingly the main hold-out. This leads to a not-too-painful discussion of the stat of open source, at least how companies are using it tactically.

Do they really expect anyone else to use something built for Ebay by Ebay and find use? Rip out Magnum in OpenStack and toss it in there? I'm always skeptical about adoption when I hear about non-software companies open sourcing a big project. -Matt There can only be one Netflix.

While we might bemoan EDS and GBS downsizing, there's endless money in the "solution" sales (tech + meatware). And - I'm sure the deal decks are saying - with SaaS penetration at 20-30%, there's a shit-ton of churn in IT in the next 10-20 years, all requiring services. Most importantly, the G2000 and governments will want to hire "trusted" brands, like Accenture, to help them. On the other hand, maybe that goofy Accenture touch screen in ORD will now be a way to touch-screen up Oracle wares: God help us.

Episode 90: These strategies work really well except for when they’re totally fucked

Mar 16, 2017 1:01:01

Description:

While it's unknown how much time you should let your kids play Minecraft, it's equally unclear at the moment who'll win the second cloud wars. Between Google, Azure, AWS, and all the others, how companies differentiate themselves and what customers will buy on isn't sorted just yet. We discuss Google Next, Pivotal's momentum announcement, and serious theories for Okta IPO'ing. Pardon the shoddily formatted show notes below, Coté was in a hurry to get to Spring Break. Google NEXT Competing on features? Or just pricing and brand? The "complete solution." Richard summarizes announcements (https://www.infoq.com/news/2017/03/google-cloud-next) More from Google... (https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2017/03/Google-Cloud-Platform-your-Next-home-in-the-cloud.html) Cheaper, faster, more data centers Google Cloud Dataprep for cleaning up data for ingestion Cloud Opinion's Keynote Day 1 (https://medium.com/@cloud_opinion/google-next-day-1-keynotes-45c78be3dbfc) "Differentiation from other cloud providers — "we are Google, damn it" isn't working too well" Hangouts to take on Slack (http://www.theverge.com/2017/3/9/14864552/google-hangouts-chat-update-announced-slack-group-messaging-video)? This space is getting crowded Customers (http://fortune.com/2017/03/06/google-cloud-event/): Snapchat, Evernote, Disney, Coca Cola, Home Depot, Whirlpool. Hosted container builder service (https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2017/03/Google-Cloud-Container-Builder-a-fast-and-flexible-way-to-package-your-software.html) Pivotal was the Google partner of the year (https://twitter.com/phillip_webb/status/839506314975821825)!

Episode 89: The Shit Show Matrix, or, they’re following the playbook which is basically unprofitable

Mar 9, 2017 1:06:58

Description:

Docker’s new enterprise SKUs and, once again, the open-core model. Also: IPO mania with Snap and MuleSoft. In discussion Docker EE, we start with a discussion on how socket-based pricing may seem goofy, but all pricing schemes are pretty weird, so you gotta choose one. We then try to dissect what exactly you get with the enterprise edition and conclude that we should have done more prep work. Mid-roll Coté wrote about Java at The Register (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/03/03/pizza_roaches_and_java/).

Many of our customers have gone down this path and ended up not wanting to support the life of their own platform...which doesn’t match the pace of innovation that the Cloud Foundry community can follow.

Episode 88: Docker is just cheap VMware, right?

Feb 18, 2017 1:00:02

Description:

There's tell that some people just look at containers as a cheaper way to virtualize, eschewing the fancy-lad "cloud-native stuff." We discuss that idea, plus "the enterprise cloud wars," and also our feel that Slack is actually a really good tool and company.

Episode 87: Snap's cloud billions, Google's social, Monitoring Startups considered hard, DHS wants your passwords

Feb 11, 2017 59:11

Description:

Snap is looking to spend billions on AWS and Google Cloud over the next five years. We talk about what exactly that could be for, then check in with Google's social strategy and thermostat strategies; meanwhile, the America Fuck Yeah crew wants to start gathering passwords at the boarder. Also, Brandon lays out the case that an open-core monitoring startup is a hard row to hoe. Also, Baltimore is not in Maine. (But Coté is pretty sure it actually is.) Mid-roll Coté: we're a media sponsor for DevOpsDays Baltimore (https://www.devopsdays.org/events/2017-baltimore/welcome/), March 7th to 8th. No discount code yet, but we're getting one.

A criminal is just gonna let you see their stuff? They'll just delete it, set up fake accounts, etc. It's not like popping the trunk for a thief and finding lock picks and guns in the boot: with digital crime tools and weapons, you can hide and subterfuge. And then the only people getting harmed are innocent people. What the fuck is wrong with these people, and more importantly the shit-for brains who voted for them?

Meanwhile, AWS at ~$10bn for 2016 with something like 20-23% profit margin (OpInc based on 2016Q4 numbers (http://venturebeat.com/2017/02/02/aws-posts-3-53-billion-in-revenue-in-q4-2016-up-47-from-last-year/)), Azure and GCP catching up (http://www.geekwire.com/2017/cloud-report-card-amazon-web-services-12b-juggernaut-microsoft-google-gaining/): MSFT is probably $5-6bn, depending on how you categorize it.

Other thing to get worked up about: eliminating remote work IBM on that colo shit (https://twitter.com/cote/status/829739491850022912) Brandon is safe! (He lives in Austin.) Coté: I won't deny that working in smelling range is the best. But, the gains never feel like enough to enforce it. Plus, mega-city congestion and resulting classist systems, cf. The Wealth of Humans (http://thenewstack.io/review-automation-wake-call-fill-vacuum-tech-ethics/). It's a problem that should be solved, not embraced.

Episode 86: Life after artisanal pork rinds (i.e. tech M&A), CostCo Down Under

Jan 31, 2017 1:01:52

Description:

With a flurry of M&A over the past few weeks, we discuss some of the more popular ones: AppDynamics, Trello, and Apiary. These kind of buys are all about what the acquirer plans to do with the new “asset” and the financial health of the company being acquired. We discuss these recent acquisitions, including who the “losers” are. Also, the low-down on CostCo in Australia! Mid-roll Coté: I’m speaking at DevOpsDays Charlotte (https://www.devopsdays.org/events/2017-charlotte/agenda/), day two keynote, I think. Use the code SDT to get 25% off!

Also, in the “grim” vein, Coté reviews some books on "automation," (http://thenewstack.io/review-automation-wake-call-fill-vacuum-tech-ethics) which John Allspaw rightly says (https://www.facebook.com/drunkandretired/posts/10155023406864169?comment_id=10155023650914169&comment_tracking=%7B%22tn%22%3A%22R%22%7D) should be called "new technology," fair enough.

Jan 21, 2017 48:45

Description:

In part two of Coté navel gazing, we discuss Coté’s life as an analyst and strategists. Matt Ray is off in Australia-land, so it’s just Brandon and Coté. We discuss: what IT analyst work on; working with marketers that have poor, nothing new material; learning how to function inside a large company in the executive suite; M&A and investment bankers, getting shit done in large companies (it’s always slow), like Project Sputnik.

Episode 84: 2017 Predictions: cloud, containers, AI

Dec 22, 2016 1:07:22

Description:

After speculating on GitHub’s business we throw out our 2017 predictions. We cover AWS, containers, AI, and government IT. Since holiday family time is coming up, Brandon also suggests some simple family IT help-desk tasks - like backup - and throws out the stretch goal of discussing 2FA at the dinner table. Mid-roll Coté: Come see me January 10th in Phoenix (https://www.meetup.com/Arizona-Cloud-Foundry-Meetup/events/236191762/), 5:30pm at the Galvanize Office. Free parking! Coté: Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.9 is out. It adds in Google Cloud & Azure support, so you’re all multi-cloud ready; it will run 250,000 containers concurrently; you can now auto-scale on based on new metrics like HTTP Latency and HTTP Throughput, so when your app seems slow to users, the platform kicks in to make it go faster (previously, CPU; Spring Boot developers will see handy diagnostics info about their apps with new Actuator (diagnostic thing) integrations; devs can use PCF to run “tasks” (one time processes); and, of course, a slew of security updates are bundled in.

Episode 83: I think the word we object to is "DevOps"

Dec 17, 2016 54:22

Description:

...Statler and Waldorf talk with Fozzie ...What's the "OpsOps" of DevOps?. ...Never say you're going to spend $1bn on anything What exactly is DevOps? We dare to discuss that at first and then get into Amazon's new managed hosting offering. There's some new container news with containerd from DockerInc land, and some little notes on Azure's features and Cisco's InterCloud shutting down. Also, we find out which Muppet each of us would be played by in The Muppets Take Over Software Defined Talk. Mid-roll Coté: Come see me January 10th in Phoenix (https://www.meetup.com/Arizona-Cloud-Foundry-Meetup/events/236191762/), 5:30pm at the Galvanize Office. Free parking! Coté: check out my interview with Tony at Home Depot about their first year being cloud native, on Pivotal Cloud Foundry (https://blog.pivotal.io/pivotal-conversations/features/045-cloud-native-at-home-depot-with-tony-mcculley). They went from 0 to ~150 apps in their first year. Like, real, business critical apps that you probably end up interacting with (pro tools, paint), plus internal facing apps.

It's called managed cloud." (http://venturebeat.com/2016/12/12/amazon-launches-aws-managed-services-to-help-more-big-companies-adopt-cloud/) "This is actually a thing.

"Designed for the Fortune 1000 and the Global 2000, this service is designed to accelerate cloud adoption" AKA "We're eating our partners" AKA "RACKSPACE: YOU'RE UP!" Coté: Is this like a service desk and a runbook for spinning up AWS stuff? Plus actual AMZN staff to "manage" the infrastructure like patching and such right? Coté: I was just talking with someone yesterday who's mission was "optimize how we do IT without me telling you what I want to do with IT." That is: lower costs and give us the ability to do whatever we may want in the future in under a year's planning/effort.

They are increasingly using a new style to build networks that relies more on software and less on high-end, expensive hardware." Sharwood@ElReg (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/12/13/cisco_to_kill_its_intercloud_public_cloud_on_march_31st_2017/): "OpenStack public clouds have an unhappy history: Rackspace felt it could build a business on the platform, but has since changed tack. HP pulled out of its own Helion public cloud. If Cisco is indeed changing direction, the OpenStack Board has some interesting matters to ponder." Theory: AWS means on-premise IT is over-serving. You actually don't need all that. Incumbent vendors succumbed to the strategy aphasia of the disruptor's' dilemma (weren't willing to sacrifice/take eye off the ball of existing success and revenue) and lost to Amazon's lower capabilities, lower price approach. WHEN WILL TECH PEOPLE LURN? There was this talk several years ago that was all like: "well, obviously, we shouldn't compete strategy-to-strategy with Amazon. We should provide the enterprise version!" Apparently, that was dead wrong. People confused Apple's ability to sell at an insane premium with the market not caring about x86 &co.

More Docker usage numbers from DataDog (https://www.datadoghq.com/blog/3-clear-trends-in-ecs-adoption/)! "ECS adoption has climbed steadily from zero to 15 percent of Docker organizations using Datadog. (And more than 10 percent of all Datadog customers are now using Docker.)" How do I read this? Does it mean adoption is fast after an initial tire-kicking? "In the 30 days after an organization starts reporting ECS metrics, we see a 35 percent increase in the number of running containers as compared to the 60-day baseline that came before. Using the same parameters, we see a 27 percent increase in the number of running Docker hosts."

Episode 82: Attack of the two-pizza teams

Dec 9, 2016 57:10

Description:

...Eventually, someone has to clean up the leftover pizza. ...That sweet OpEx. ..."Easy to stay." Amazon came out with a slew of features last week. This week we discuss them and take some cracks at the broad, portfolio approach at AWS compared to historic (like .Net) platform approaches. We also discuss footwear and what to eat and where to stay in Las Vegas. Footware Kenneth Cole slip on shoes (http://amzn.to/2gH6OzD). Keen Austin shoes, slip-on (http://amzn.to/2h2gveX) and lace (http://amzn.to/2ggll4y). The Doc Martin's Coté used to wear, Hickmire (http://amzn.to/2hlPnIJ).

Episode 80: The case for flying Southwest and Oracle buying Dyn, and containers

Nov 29, 2016 45:37

Description:

With all the domestic, direct flight, the gang lays out the case for Southwest. Coté salivates at the prospect but is worried about sitting next to chicken cages, but there's plenty of $500 shoe sales people on board. We also discuss Oracle buying Dyn, AWS's power, the looming cloud success of Microsoft, and, of course, containers. Octogenarian style: It’s episode 80! The Brittle Bones Anniversary. Feedback & Follow-up At least one person came correct (https://twitter.com/scrub/status/800844876908789760) and said CostCo. I think we’re now in the 2,000 to 2,500 downloads range (https://twitter.com/SoftwareDefTalk/status/803315322996555781). Good job listeners! Mid-roll Coté: stop the container madness and just use Pivotal Cloud Foundry (http://cote.io/pivotal). Coté: the Cloud Native roadshows are over, but check out the cloud native WIP I have: - or, just check out some excerpts on working with auditors (https://medium.com/@cote/auditors-your-new-bffs-918c8671897a#.et5tv7p7l), selecting initial projects (https://medium.com/@cote/getting-started-picking-your-first-cloud-native-projects-or-every-digital-transformation-starts-d0b1295f3712#.v7jpyjvro), and dealing with legacy (https://medium.com/built-to-adapt/deal-with-legacy-before-it-deals-with-you-cc907c800845#.ixtz1kqdz). Matt: Dec 1st and 2nd - DevOps Days Australia 20% discount code - SDT2016 (https://ti.to/devopsaustralia/2016-sydney/discount/SDT2016). Matt: Sydney AWS Meetups: December 6 (https://www.meetup.com/Amazon-Web-Services-Sydney-North-User-Group/events/235116364/), December 7 (https://www.meetup.com/AWS-Sydney/events/230091220/). Oracle Buys Dyn Coté needs a dial-a-friend on this one. Fleshing out their cloud coverage (https://www.oracle.com/corporate/acquisitions/dyn/index.html) This is what Coté frequently concluded when doing cloud strategy (https://twitter.com/craig_tracey/status/800742523270402048) Softlayer and AWS compared (https://medium.com/worm-capital/does-ibm-have-an-accounting-problem-in-softlayer-ccafd582059c#.5fcng7ctc) Sorry Oracle, Taking Down AWS is Alibaba’s Job “Alibaba Cloud president Simon Hu has said the company is working to surpass AWS within four years.” (http://www.itnews.com.au/news/aws-rival-alibaba-to-open-sydney-data-centre-442145) We’ll see if YUGEly can wrap his head around IaaS protectionism. Skyliner.io “You only get one hill to die on, so choose wisely” (https://blog.skyliner.io/the-happy-genius-of-my-household-2f76efba535a) New AWS-native PaaS from Etsy/Stripe/SquareSpace veterans Coté: I feel like I’ve read this blog post before. Maybe I even wrote it? So much typing. Microsoft Joins the Linux Foundation - we’re beyond the cats and dogs mirror! Steve Ballmer is spinning in his grave (https://www.linuxfoundation.org/announcements/microsoft-fortifies-commitment-to-open-source-becomes-linux-foundation-platinum) More than just Linux (http://www.infoworld.com/article/3142128/open-source-tools/4-no-bull-takeaways-from-microsoft-joining-the-linux-foundation.html) Add to this Visual Studio on the Mac (http://www.theverge.com/2016/11/14/13621116/microsoft-visual-studio-coming-to-mac). Google joined .Net Foundation (https://cloudplatform.googleblog.com/2016/11/Google-Cloud-to-join-NET-Foundation-Technical-Steering-Group.html) Windows, internet, phone, cloud BONUS LINKS! Not covered in show Recent Coté Nonsense “Largile” (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/11/21/largile_for_management_babies/) Recent DevOps books review (http://thenewstack.io/review-understanding-devops-putting-place-even-scale/). Red Hat wants to make Kubernetes boring (and successful) They’ve certainly made OpenStack boring (zing!) “Not that Red Hat is calling Kubernetes "boring." (http://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-red-hat-aims-to-make-kubernetes-boring-and-successful/) Instead, they're calling it "Enterprise-Ready," which is basically the same thing.” I dig that Matt Asay style. Dude knows how to pick a quick topic. The End of General Purpose Computing More precisely, as the title says “The End of the General Purpose Operating System“ “What we're witnessing in the market is the development of vertically integrated stacks” (http://www.morethanseven.net/2016/11/05/the-end-of-the-general-purpose-operating-system-as-it-happens/) “In all of these cases the operating system is an implementation detail of the higher level software. It's not intended to be directly managed, or at least managed to the same degree as the general purpose OS you're running today.” Apple Drops AirPort Routers I’ve got 3 of them, pretty solid (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-11-21/apple-said-to-abandon-development-of-wireless-routers-ivs0ssec). We don’t talk about Apple much here. Possible topic: what’s up with Apple now-a-days? Trump vs. Tech “Now we will have a president whose affinity for high-tech seems limited to Twitter bullying” (https://backchannel.com/tech-ceos-nightmare-a-president-totally-at-odds-with-their-values-20dd7b01e037#.tbk9vft4z) Interesting when you think that the heads of Google, Microsoft, Apple and probably Amazon (Bezos owns Washington Post) are all at odds with Trump. Facebook is trying to not piss anyone off. Not sure if we want to talk about it, so maybe it’s just a show note. MacOS Security and Privacy Guide Lots of practical tips for a safer Mac experience (https://github.com/drduh/macOS-Security-and-Privacy-Guide) Black Friday & Cyber Monday "the sweet smell of cyber dealz" (https://twitter.com/rachelbinx/status/803335197785632769) Recommendations Brandon: Left, Right, Center (https://www.amazon.com/Left-Center-Right-Dice-Game/dp/B005UP14VY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480369890&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=dice+game+left+center+right&psc=1) Matt: Thanksgiving in Sydney: http://www.musicalsoupeaters.com/thanksgiving/ Magpie Attacks (http://www.musicalsoupeaters.com/swooping-season/)!

Episode 79: From a vegan, clothing optional co-op to working with banks and oil companies - Coté’s professional life, part 1

Nov 17, 2016 54:49

Description:

How does one go from living in a vegan, clothing option co-op working on a philosophy degree to hustling enterprise software? That's the story of Coté's career that we discuss in this episode. Matt Ray is out, getting the bills paid, so Brandon interviews Coté about how he got here, professionally. We end the story around 2011; maybe we'll pick up next time it's just the two of us. Show Notes House of Commons Co-op (http://www.iccaustin.coop/hoc/), Austin, Texas. See some pictures (https://www.flickr.com/search/?user_id=12261156%40N00&view_all=1&text=HoC) of a simpler time there. I think this (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Zachary_Newton) is that Victorian Literature professor. He's the one that taught me how to use books as tools (https://cote.io/2009/01/05/writeinbooks/), writing in them and whatnot. A typical day at BMC (https://www.flickr.com/photos/cote/58711356). Always lots of jokes (https://www.flickr.com/photos/cote/63256825/), there. See more pictures (https://www.flickr.com/search/?user_id=12261156%40N00&view_all=1&text=bmc). In 2005, Coté wrote two pieces on IBM Lotus stuff: one on "Workplace for Business" (https://cote.io/2005/10/25/workplace-for-business-strategy-execution/) and another on how I thought they should move it to Eclipse (https://cote.io/2005/12/22/put-the-outlook-killer-in-eclipse/).

Episode 78: Trump's possible effect on tech, plus, containers

Nov 12, 2016 1:21:21

Description:

We discuss possible effects that the Trump presidency will have on the tech world. The ideas are more or less known, but the details and whether they'd be enacted are sketchy and unreliable. Before that, of course, we talk about containers. This episode features Brandon Whichard (https://twitter.com/bwhichard), Matt Ray (https://twitter.com/mattray), and Coté (https://twitter.com/cote). Mid-roll Matt: Dec 1st and 2nd - DevOps Days Australia 20% discount code - SDT2016 (https://ti.to/devopsaustralia/2016-sydney/discount/SDT2016). Coté: Nov 16th - Cloud Native Roadshow in Omaha, next week (https://pivotal.io/event/cloud-native-workshop/omaha). Coté: Various dates - Pivotal Cloud Native Roadshows (https://pivotal.io/event/pivotal-cloud-native-roadshow) - Cincinnati - Nov 10 (https://pivotal.io/event/pivotal-cloud-native-roadshow/cincinnati); St. Louis - Nov 14 (https://pivotal.io/event/pivotal-cloud-native-roadshow/stlouis); Hartford - Nov 16 (https://pivotal.io/event/pivotal-cloud-native-roadshow/hartford); Denver - Nov 18 (https://pivotal.io/event/pivotal-cloud-native-roadshow/denver); New York - Nov 22 (https://pivotal.io/event/pivotal-cloud-native-roadshow/newyork); Los Angeles - Nov 28 (https://pivotal.io/event/pivotal-cloud-native-roadshow/losangeles). K8s Operators Stateful applications for K8s, a shot at Mesos (https://coreos.com/blog/introducing-operators.html)? Prometheus & etcd first examples (spark? hadoop?) This begs the broad question: so, what’s CoreOS’s business posture now? Azure Container Service, now with K8s Those Microsoft folks will just put anything that looks tasty in their cloud (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-container-service-the-cloud-s-most-open-option-for-containers/) - what a reversal from the Microsoft we grew up with. Docker in Production: A History of Failure From this dude’s perspective (https://thehftguy.wordpress.com/2016/11/01/docker-in-production-an-history-of-failure/): a failure of product management and stable releases. Bugs, documentation spotty, cleanup scripts, kernel support (Debian!?), aufs & overlay & overlay2, 7-hour outage with no post-mortem “Docker only moves forward and breaks things” “The docker hype is not only a technological liability any more, it has evolved into a sociological problem as well.” A retort… that mostly agrees (https://patrobinson.github.io/2016/11/05/docker-in-production/) “boring tech is what makes money” shiny tech makes resumes? Mesosphere Jay Lyman on the momemtum (https://451research.com/report-short?entityId=88226): “Mesosphere does not disclose its number of paying clients, but says it has dozens of large enterprise customers, its primary target. The company says its experience supporting software deployments in production is among its key differentiators, helped by the use of Apache Mesos by companies such as Twitter, Netflix, Airbnb, PayPal and Yelp, which was featured in a 451 User Deployment Report. Mesosphere says its focus is customer deployments of 500-1,000 nodes per day in production. It also says the bulk of its customers are licensees with professional services accounting for less than 10% of its clients, which tend to move to its subscription software.” TrumpTech, aka, “Putting the 400 lbs hackers on diets.” Turns out there is some marginally clear policy, just not McKinsey title mode versus white papers (http://www.vox.com/2016/11/10/13584390/donald-trump-first-100-days). Jonathan Shieber@Tech Crunch (https://techcrunch.com/2016/11/09/what-does-a-president-elect-trump-mean-for-silicon-valley-nothing-very-good/): "The biggest question facing millions of Americans this Wednesday is: just how much of what Donald Trump said on the campaign does he intend to actually try to make happen." (For example, Korea (http://www.vox.com/world/2016/11/10/13585524/donald-trump-phone-call-south-korea-park-geun-hye).) Dave Lee, at the BBC has a good laundry list: “Uncertainty, frustration and an increased fragility for the global home of tech innovation. Mr Trump certainly won't want to go down as the president who destroyed Silicon Valley, but the concern here is that of the few policies that have been explained in detail, some seem directly at odds with each other.” 10% repatriation program (http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderdaily/2016/11/09/apple-adobe-cisco-citi-focuses-on-big-techs-big-trump-tax-windfall/) - tech companies have tons of cash abroad: Historic rates (http://www.investopedia.com/terms/r/repatriation.asp): “At the highest tax rate, corporations must pay 35% to repatriate capital, minus local taxes charged by countries in which the funds are held.” Hardware: “AAPL (93% of $230bln), CSCO (91% of $64.6B), IBM ($8.2B total cash, undisclosed % of cash held overseas but note 58% of earnings are from non US operations), HPE ($10.0B total cash, undisclosed % of cash held overseas but 65% of earnings are from non US operations), HPQ ($5.6B total cash, undisclosed % of cash held overseas but 65%-70% of earnings are from non US operations), JNPR (94% of $3.2B).” Software: “Specifically, some of the mid and large cap companies that have large cash balances “trapped” offshore are likely to benefit from being able to return a portion of this cash to shareholders. We note companies with high gross cash balances trapped offshore include: ADBE (85% of $4B – from 2015 10-K), ADSK (86% of $2.1B), CA (76% of $2.7B), CTXS (80% of $2.45B), FTNT (38% of $1.2B), ORCL (76% of $56B – pre-N), MSFT (96% of $113B – pre-LNKD purchase), RHT (42% of $2.0B), SYMC (93% of $5.6B – post-BC), VMW (77% of $7.5B), VRSN (68% of $1.9B). We believe the chances increase of a larger share repurchase or (lesser chance) dividend from these companies.” Apple & Amazon are not in a good situation (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/11/09/tech_trump_silicon_valley/) - they’ll be a good test of WTF happens. Meanwhile, tech stocks dropping a bit (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/tech-stocks-plunge-for-second-straight-day-after-trump-win-2016-11-10). Ovum has a shit ton of quick analysis, all free (https://www.ovum.com/us-presidential-election-2016/): Fear of US public cloud companies, globally (https://www.ovum.com/will-trump-presidency-mean-public-cloud-computing-2-2/). Remember the freak-out from NSA stuff? Same idea. I think the Gemans got over it. Outsources (https://www.ovum.com/providers-prepare-trump-presidency-potential-impact-global-delivery-2/): “A massive curtailing of H-1B visas, for example, will mean providers will need to make immediate shifts in what they’re able to offer customers locally, unless or until they’re able to compensate with talent.” “For providers, there’s also the unanswered question of the impact on US government spending.” [Education](https://www.ovum.com/trumping-expectations-now-us-public-sector-2/ - some proposals for de-centralizing, meaning fragmentation of IT spend. Government talent, regulations, and spending (https://www.ovum.com/trumping-expectations-now-us-public-sector-2/) - “If there is a large exodus of high-caliber and skilled staff, how will departments fill the gap? It also raises the question of funding for programs aimed at modernizing tech in the federal government such as F18 and FedRAMP. Trump might reduce the barriers to swapping out tech and push down expenditure that way.

I’ll be re-jiggering the podcast back end again, so expect some annoying weirdness (fireside.fm appears to be awesome, if expensive) So who’s buying Twitter? Tyler Cowe’s short term focus and going private escape hatch. VMware and AWS “VMware Cloud on AWS” “The service will be operated, sold and supported by VMware (not AWS) but integrate with the rest of AWS’ cloud portfolio (think storage, database, analytics and more).” https://medium.com/@cloud_opinion/aws-blinked–20cddbb537ed#.9cuvcp75o “these customers will go to Cloud, but its really a glorified co-lo.” “AWS should be encouraging customers to develop their workloads to take advantage of Cloud ( microservices, serverless etc ) and not delay it further.” InfoWorld piece: They keep talking about hybrid cloud, but what does that mean here? Just “we use multiple cloud types/providers,” or one application running across different clouds? “As part of the deal, VMware will be AWS’s preferred private cloud partner and Amazon will be VMware’s preferred partner in the public cloud.” Some MSP action: “One of the key differences between this deal and the one VMware announced with IBM in February is that this service is being offered and managed by VMware.” “Interested customers can request access to the service’s private beta starting Thursday, but VMware doesn’t expect the service to be live until early next year. General availability of VMware cloud on AWS will have to wait until even later in 2017.” Brief 451 note No data in DevOps Google Devices Roundup, and AI interlude Revisiting the Apple or Google ecosystem question. I hate having to think about ecosystems when buying electronics. And AI. Walt Mossberg Thinks Siri is Dumb Wired Interview with Obama - dude knows AI. BONUS LINKS, not covered in podcast Container Madness! Nothing much new, just content to riff on Microsoft shipping Commercially Supported (CS) Docker Engine Red Hat and containers - relabel, transitioned from originally a PaaS to CaaS. DockerCon coming to Austin Opentracing joins the Cloud Native Computing Foundation Announcement Open tracing Luke transitions to new Puppet CEO Luke’s announcement in Twitter Luke is one of the main people who started all this stuff, based on annoyance of BladeLogic, cfengine, etc. Did I ever tell the one of how I did a terrible sales job getting Reductive Labs signed up with RedMonk? The new dude looks like the real deal of enterprise infrastructure.

Really Dark Horse: IBM. This Week in Tech PE: HPE Spins off Software They got divested (https://techcrunch.com/2016/09/07/hewlett-packard-enterprise-to-spin-off-software-assets-in-8-8b-transaction/) “HPE will be retaining tools that support the company’s cloud and infrastructure businesses but will be spinning off tools for application delivery management, big data, enterprise security, information management, governance and IT operations management.” From what I know of HPE, this seems to be overlapping. I’d love a list of “stays vs. goes” Q3 2017, and you thought Dell/EMC was slow Where does this leave HP? Will they acquire more SW or stay a “systems” company. It makes you realize how “small” their SW group was. Coté’s notebook on this topic (https://cote.io/2016/09/07/hpe-software-sold-for-88bn-to-micro-focus/). Also, Thoma Bravo says it gets, like, 20-45% returns on assets it takes private (https://cote.io/2016/09/12/thoma-bravo-getting-20-45-returns-on-taking-tech-companies-private/).

Episode 71: Unbreakable Docker, or, elephants, er, like other elephants

Sep 3, 2016 1:15:38

Description:

Eventually, you have to decide how your open source software is going to make money, and your partners probably won’t like it. That’s what the dust-up around Docker is this week, it seems to us. We also talk briefly about VMware’s big conference this week, and rumors of HPE selling off it’s Software group to private equity. Listen above, subscribe to the feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/SoftwareDefinedTalk) (or iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/software-defined-talk-podcast/id893738521?mt=2)), or download the MP3 directly (https://aphid.fireside.fm/d/1437767933/9b74150b-3553-49dc-8332-f89bbbba9f92/ea25eafd-1d31-4f4f-a3a6-efad5b9cd5a5.mp3).

They learn about dangers such as rocks, and animals (e.g. the blue-ringed octopus), and also about surf conditions, such as rip currents, sandbars, and waves. Older Nippers also learn some basic first aid and may also learn CPR when they reach the age of 13." Can someone explain this “Docker forking” hoopla? Coté’s write-up (https://cote.io/2016/09/01/deciding-where-the-docker-ecosystem-will-make-money/). Docker Inc. doesn’t want to be a commoditized building block (http://thenewstack.io/docker-fork-talk-split-now-table/) From a Red Hat person (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/forking-docker-daniel-riek): “The conflict started to escalate earlier this summer, when Docker Inc used its controlling position to push Swarm, it’s own clone of Kubernetes-style container orchestration, into the core Docker project, putting the basic container runtime in a conflict with a notable part of its ecosystem. Docker Inc. then went on to essentially accuse Red Hat of forking Docker - at the Red Hat Summit no less. After that, Docker Inc’s Solomon Hykes came out strongly against the efforts to standardize the container runtime in OCI - an initiative his company co-founded.” Re: that episode where we discuss Docker ecosystem challenges (https://cote.io/2015/04/17/sdt30/): “Yet on a regular basis, Red Hat patches that enable valid requirements from Red Hat customer use cases get shut down as it seems for the simple reason that they don’t fit into Docker Inc’s business strategy.” A fight over where to draw the line between free/open/commodified and costs/proprietary/competitive: "And while I personally consider the orchestration layer the key to the container paradigm, the right approach here is to keep the orchestration separate from the core container runtime standardization. This avoids conflicts between different layers of the container runtime: we can agree on the common container package format, transport, and execution model without limiting choice between e.g. Kubernetes, Mesos, Swarm." Don't bring a pistol to a bazooka fight. Enterprises love RHEL - have you ever tried to sell Ubuntu into organizations? It’s like what selling NT must have been like.

Samsung Buys Joyent Joyent notes (https://www.joyent.com/blog/samsung-acquires-joyent-a-ctos-perspective) Coverage from Venturebeat (http://venturebeat.com/2016/06/15/samsung-buys-cloud-infrastructure-provider-joyent-will-keep-operating-as-standalone-company/) "Until today, we lacked one thing. We lacked the scale required to compete effectively in the large, rapidly growing and fiercely competitive cloud computing market. Now, that changes," Microsoft acquires LinkedIn Press Release from Microsoft (http://blogs.microsoft.com/firehose/2016/06/13/microsoft-to-acquire-linkedin/) M&A Synergies Theoretical WTF'ing: Slideshare, extended to all Office formats (https://twitter.com/monkchips/status/742379875667955713).

Also (http://www.recode.net/2016/6/13/11921064/microsoft-ceo-memo-linkedin-ceo-memo): "Massively scaling the reach and engagement of LinkedIn by using the network to power the social and identity layers of Microsoft's ecosystem of over one billion customers. Think about things like LinkedIn's graph interwoven throughout Outlook, Calendar, Active Directory, Office, Windows, Skype, Dynamics, Cortana, Bing and more." 433 million professionals in LinkedIn (from MSFT internal memo (http://www.recode.net/2016/6/13/11921064/microsoft-ceo-memo-linkedin-ceo-memo)). ...but it's probably all the same people, tho (https://twitter.com/MYDemaray/status/742386678363361280). "Along with the new growth in our Office 365 commercial and Dynamics businesses this deal is key to our bold ambition to reinvent productivity and business processes." (MSFT CEO, from MSFT internal memo (http://www.recode.net/2016/6/13/11921064/microsoft-ceo-memo-linkedin-ceo-memo)) Ads and dumb-AI context: "This combination will make it possible for new experiences such as a LinkedIn newsfeed that serves up articles based on the project you are working on and Office suggesting an expert to connect with via LinkedIn to help with a task you're trying to complete. As these experiences get more intelligent and delightful, the LinkedIn and Office 365 engagement will grow. And in turn, new opportunities will be created for monetization through individual and organization subscriptions and targeted advertising." (MSFT CEO, from MSFT internal memo (http://www.recode.net/2016/6/13/11921064/microsoft-ceo-memo-linkedin-ceo-memo)) LinkedIn growth since Dec, 2008: "Our team has grown from 338 people to over 10,000, our membership from 32M to over 433M and our revenue from $78M to over $3 billion." (MSFT internal memo (http://www.recode.net/2016/6/13/11921064/microsoft-ceo-memo-linkedin-ceo-memo)). Others from memo: Lydia training inline in MSFT apps; paid content in MSFT apps (a la Spiceworks); HR and recruiting. Deal PR deck (https://ncmedia.azureedge.net/ncmedia/2016/06/msft_announce_160613.pdf) - pretty good. I can see how the social graph and all the "semantic web sit" in LinkedIn, crossed with MSFT assets works well. One take on ads, doesn't like the Office angle, cause privacy, but oh wait: Google Apps and GMail (http://marketingland.com/microsofts-linkedin-acqusition-represents-huge-opportunity-bing-ads-180572) It's the 1 dataset MS can keep out of Facebook and Google's hands. https://trackchanges.postlight.com/9-things-microsoft-could-do-with-linkedin-2aec55c2bc72#.iv7cofd13 "Microsoft could improve LinkedIn": Microsoft designs for people who have to do boring things with computers in order to make money.

The price tag values LinkedIn at 8.2x trailing revenue." "The company [Microsoft] must find new ways to differentiate. Integrations with LinkedIn offer potential functionality that will be challenging to duplicate. When the two companies are joined, there will be multiple ways that LinkedIn's member network, and the data from that, will go into improving Microsoft's Office and Dynamics apps, besides the other benefits from running a combined company." "LinkedIn's tools for recruiters account for 58% of the $860m in revenue it generated in the first quarter of the year [so, $3.440bn run rate]. When combined with educational material from its Lynda.com acquisition, HCM tools make up 65% of sales. Tools for marketers and premium subscriptions (including its offering for sales teams) each make up less than 20% of the business, and are the slowest growing parts of the business." "Microsoft is the world's largest software developer, with about $100bn in sales and a $400bn market cap."

Twitter's kinda big deal, maybe you've heard of them. Over 1000 services manage Twitter, over 1,000,000 cores. http://twitter.github.io (http://twitter.github.io) Heron is a newly open-sourced replacement for Storm. Supporting all of our own code isn't sustainable, need an open source community. The Ellen Degeneres photo tweet from the 2015 Academy Awards knocked a couple of services over. 25% traffic spike, hit 255k/tweets per second. 2016 Academy Awards had 2x the traffic, no failures. 30,000 node Mesos cluster (probably largest). "We don't like being the biggest of anything, we find the edge cases." 130,000,000 containers launched daily. Some of their acquisitions were in public cloud, they don't move them in-house. They're actually pushing new services out to AWS where they can. Vine, TellApart, Crashlytics, MoPub, BlueFin, etc. Ad-serving is mostly in AWS. Users: Time Warner, Twitter (30,000 host deployment), Apple Siri. What exactly is scheduling? BMC CONTROL-M (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMC_Control-M) Coté gets Matt to "checks out" his crudes understanding. (Spoiler: Checks out.) Serverless, what’s the deal?

Cost Cutting Perks in Silicon Valley More from the snack-track files (http://www.businessinsider.com/cost-cutting-at-dropbox-and-silicon-valley-startups-2016-5). Employees at Kabam, the online-gaming startup worth $1 billion, recently felt like there was a decrease in the number of office snack stands. Although the company denies it, some believe the snack stands are now placed more sporadically in order to reduce the employees' frequency of snack consumption by making it a little harder to get to them. No Uber in Austin Brandon sets us straight on the details. Coté defends the uber-haters. Will Containers Replace Hypervisors, Almost Certainly Yes TL;DR; is the title :) (https://cloudscaling.com/blog/cloud-computing/will-containers-replace-hypervisors-almost-certainly/) Randy Bias, the "pets vs. cattle" godfather, makes a strong case for hypervisors being on the way out. Once all the legacy apps are re-written to be in containers (cloud native) or decom'ed (you know, in the future (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmzpdd4pWvM&feature=youtu.be&t=1m19s)), and we don't want to run multiple OSes (so don't need the driver handling that hypervisors give us)...no need for hypervisors. QED. Cloud chief Diane Greene on how Google can beat Amazon and Microsoft A brief interview (http://siliconangle.com/blog/2016/05/06/cloud-chief-diane-greene-on-how-google-can-beat-amazon-and-microsoft/) "Q: How will Google differentiate against AWS and Microsoft? A: Only 5 percent of workloads are in the public cloud. Effectively you're riding another company's innovation curve for free. We've open-sourced a lot of technologies like Kubernetes and TensorFlow. As we add more features, we'll be able to share a lot more strengths with applications." - can OSS be used to attack on-premises cloud? Not in my tater salad (https://twitter.com/Oak2278/status/537436262097907713)! BONUS LINKS! Apprenda buys Kismatic "Apprenda will also take the lead in building out Windows support for Kubernetes, which has been Linux focused," said Sinclair Schuller (http://fortune.com/2016/05/19/apprenda-buys-kismatic/), chief executive of Apprenda. Do you even pop-up, bro? (https://apprenda.com/blog/apprenda-acquires-kismatic/) Apprenda pivoted towards Kubernetes recently, Kismatic was building "Enterprise friendly" Kubernetes "Per Incident" pricing (https://apprenda.com/kubernetes-support/) is really hard to scale.

Gartner actually "likes" OpenStack OpenStack and Gartner: The Facts - Alan Waite (http://blogs.gartner.com/alan-waite/2016/05/03/openstack-gartner-facts/) Good representation of many things: how difficult it is to be "part of the conversation" with a paywall. The perception of Gartner is usually skewed Tip: always read the primary source, be it a Gartner PDF or a talk, etc. Ping Pong and the Tech Bubble? "Falling table-tennis sales give a peek into the economics of Silicon Valley, where the right to play on the job is sacrosanct" (http://www.wsj.com/articles/is-the-tech-bubble-popping-ping-pong-offers-an-answer-1462286089#:K4CFGVr2Ylj1GA) Seriously?

Episode 61: Baltimore is not the same as Annapolis. Also, they like crab there

Apr 29, 2016 48:16

Description:

OpenStack is crawling its way into the plateau of productivity, we submit, during this week of the OpenStack Summit. We also discuss the recent Docker survey findings, and some overly precise number on private vs. public cloud adoption. Coté also manages to insult the entire Eastern seaboard, esp. Annapolis.

"Because Docker makes it simple and easy to push software out, isolate issues and roll back, over 63% of organizations report a reduction in their MTTR which impacts overall software quality and customer satisfaction." Cloud about to get HUGE "CIOs report that 16.2% of workloads are currently running in the public cloud, and that in five years 41.3% of workloads will run in a public cloud. This suggests at least a 20% CAGR in public cloud workloads over the next five years. In our view, a near- tripling of the public-Cloud-based workload mix represents a monumental architectural shift, which shows no signs of abating and is likely to create a major ripple effect across the entire technology landscape." - "Amazon Seeing 'Momentous' Change of Guard as Public Cloud 'Booms,' Says JP Morgan" (http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderdaily/2016/04/14/amazon-seeing-momentous-change-of-guard-as-public-cloud-booms-says-jp-morgan/) How does Wall Street work, again?
