Is there Buc-ee’s bubble? Fighting a bad network connection, we discuss cloud-native versus cloud-immigrant applications and the platforms that support them. We also briefly touch on AWS and HP seeming to exit the public cloud.
Wither “Data center Operating Systems”
- Everyone has got a container-based platform for stateless app madness, including Microsoft.
- CoreOS gets $12 million from Google Ventures and has a new Kubernetes dashboard Tectonic.
- “Tectonic is a commercial product, and with this release, we have decided to launch our commercial products under a new brand, separate from the CoreOS name.”
Microsoft’s Nano Server and Hyper-V Containers
- Nano servers.
- New containers.
- Some analysis by Tim Anderson.
- TPM on the Windows Server footprint: “With Microsoft trying to get an installed base of more than eight million Windows Server 2003 machines upgraded before the middle of summer, when tech support ends, this year was not a good time to muddle the market message with a new server version of Windows.” But does this apply to “legacy” workloads, or is it the same “only-cloud-native-apps-need-apply story,” as for most container platforms?
- Get some popcorn! “Amazon is planning to break out AWS financial in its next earnings report, which drops April 23.” What will we want to see?
- New stuff.
- NFS for AWS.
- Machine Learning?
- Workspace Application Manager?
- Container service out of beta (Docker, Docker, Docker.)
- Lambda out of beta.
HP Public Cloud Re-positioning
- HP Cloud is no more?
- See also Ben Kepes, ZDNet.
- Twitter thread on HP with analysts like Lydia weighing in.

- OpenStack losing luster?
- “The worst thing for OpenStack right now is Red Hat,” McKenty says.
- As I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, with the entire software industry working on one project (minus Amazon and Google), how could politics and in-fighting possibly derail it?
- Oh wait, OpenStack’s fine but boring.
- “OpenStack, ultimately, is a feature not a product. And that’s not a bad thing.”
