DevOps’ish 139 Notes

Every week I comb through 1000s of articles that get curated down to about 100 URLs eligible to be in DevOps'ish. Those URLs land in a notes file that end up being source material for the newsletter. Being in that group of ~100 links is an achievement and should be lauded. In the immortal words of former US Vice President Joe Biden, "This is a big fscking deal." It's a shame when I have to choose between having too many links or someone's special thing getting featured in the newsletter. Read more →

138: Jeez JEDI, language ladder, killing K8s, floppy finished, and more

Let’s talk about JEDI. Not the lightsaber wielding kind, it’s US Department of Defense’s Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI) kind. JEDI is a $10 billion, single-award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract for the largest Department in the US government’s cloud business. The competition had been whittled down to AWS and Azure but, Oracle has been pitching a Larry Ellison sized fit over it. Actually, Oracle has protested JEDI’s selection process almost since its inception. Read more →

136: It is done, unicorn languages, Weave Ignite, you can’t handle the CORS, and more

Q&A: IBM’s Landmark Acquisition of Red Hat. It is done. Aside from extra meetings from too many Red Hat folks, I have seen zero change. I’d like to talk more about the whole acquisition process from my point of view since it was announced, at some point. Overall, from my perspective, the process was smooth. I commend Red Hat and IBM leadership for keeping the chaos to a minimum. Here’s to next week and hopefully fewer meetings! Read more →

Deep Cuts is a podcast that looks at the news behind the news. Things that were significant but didn’t make the newsletter for one reason or another.

134: Kubernetes Security, multicloud marvels, BGP bungle, Bill’s biggest blunder, Big Blue blows through EU, Big Red roiling JEDI requisition, and more

I spent a lot of time this week struggling with an odd problem. How do you make a multicloud platform without having to do a ton of work? I was trying to figure out why it’s so damn hard to get a multicloud platform going. People want this for various reasons but, struggle with it. Why? What was I trying to do?
