    Episode 84: 2017 Predictions: cloud, containers, AI

    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. Go to cote.io/pcf19 (https://cote.io/pcf19/) to check out my highlights and see a link to a longer, more detailed post. Feedback & Follow-up Nice review from Kiyoto (https://twitter.com/SoftwareDefTalk/status/811247748511055872)! We’re in the 2,500 downloads an episode range now - thanks listeners! Show Notes GitHub Bloomberg cover their recent year (https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-12-15/github-is-building-a-coder-s-paradise-it-s-not-coming-cheap). ...losing $66 million so far for 2016 - what would GitHub be spending that on? Did some upload a lot of JPGs to their repo? 'Sitting in a conference room featuring an abstract art piece on the wall and a Mad Men-style rollaway bar cart in the corner, GitHub’s Chris Wanstrath says the business is running more smoothly now and growing. “What happened to 2015?” says the 31-year-old co-founder and chief executive officer. “Nothing was getting done, maybe? I shouldn’t say that. Strike that."' “Secular” (http://www.cnbc.com/id/47266526) growth.

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

    ...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. Feedback & Follow-up The Doc Martin shoes: Hickmire (http://amzn.to/2hlPnIJ). Thanks to Chris Short (https://twitter.com/ChrisShort/status/808339167604338688). The DevOps App dev vs. IT service delivery. DevOps Kung Fu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DEToXsgrPc), Adam Jacob's talk on the inclusion of everyone in the org chart in DevOps What is DevOps without Dev? Is there OpsOps? AWS Managed Services Amazon will manage your shit now, with real live peoples (https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/aws-managed-services-infrastructure-operations-management-for-the-enterprise/) "This is actually a thing. 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. It's called managed cloud." - this is a good example of the more subtle way of "paying off analysts." (https://twitter.com/cote/status/809205833586409472) More like: changing their minds. "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. Bezos doesn't like meetings without a memo http://static2.businessinsider.com/image/5851aebfca7f0c24018b5b6f-2400/ap16349721408436.jpg Don't Sleep on Microsoft Damn, that's a monstrous URL (https://pages.email.microsoftemail.com/page.aspx?qs=773ed3059447707dab3a47fc5c2937dcbf750d2a6d7e8feab247991209f258cd86e8606f2837501c341831b6f3896ebcb5673dff86feb6303e458a94181db250c28f58237fd3b737cd39c6339094ff6800649c38da065423db508d0369c1992e) GPUs, HANA, Media Services, Machine Deep Learning, Data Lake, Single-instance virtual machines Coté: I hear data is a thing. And AI. Cisco Shutting Down Their InterCloud Coté's audition for an ElReg headline writer: Cloud InterRUPPTED $1 Billion isn't enough (http://www.businessinsider.com.au/amazon-claims-another-victim-cisco-kills-its-1-billion-cloud-2016-12), "score another body bag win for the unstoppable Amazon Web Services" "Meanwhile, the cloud providers like Amazon, Microsoft, and Google aren't using a lot of Cisco gear. 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. Docker Contributes Containerd Docker-engine standardized container runtime for the industry (https://blog.docker.com/2016/12/introducing-containerd/) Engine vs. Machine (https://docs.docker.com/machine/overview/#/whats-the-difference-between-docker-engine-and-docker-machine) Check out this TheNewStack story for a new strategy slide (http://thenewstack.io/docker-spins-containerd-independent-open-source-project/): Containers in Production! Round-up of some container survey poking (http://redmonk.com/fryan/2016/12/01/containers-in-production-is-security-a-barrier-a-dataset-from-anchore/) n=338 respondents Sidenote: Jenkins win. Good job biffing that one Oracle. But then again: is there any money in it? "This leads us to a very difficult operational problem – how do we ensure security, and understand the makeup of an application while still allowing developer velocity to increase." 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."

AWS is already there, probably Azure soon. I wonder if there's a deficiency in Google's offering that it's more of a consumed resource than a platform a la AWS? Plenty of management in AWS already?

    ...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).

I couldn't read it all! So, what's the role of Lambda here? It seems like the universal process thingy - like AppleScript, bash scripts, etc. for each part: if you need/want to add some customization to each thing, put a Lambda on it. What's the argument against just going full Amazon, in the same way you'd go full .Net, etc.? Is it cost? Lockin? Performance (people always talk about Amazon being kind of flakey at times - but what isn't flakey, your in-house run IT? Come on.) BONUS LINKS! Not covered in episode.

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

    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: 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/)! Play your music at 10x slowdown, makes for good ambient listening. It’s up on GitHub if you want to do it to your own music collection (http://slowradio.rumblesan.com/), currently Ogg-only :( Coté: It Follows (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_Follows).
