It’s a hipster thing, don’t worry about it – Software Defined Talk #029


Is there Buc-ee’s bubble? Fighting a bad network connection, we discuss cloud-native vs. cloud-immigrant applications and the platforms that support them. We also briefly touch on AWS and HP seeming to exit the public cloud.

With Brandon Whichard, Matt Ray, and Coté.

Microsoft’s Nano Server and Hyper-V Containers (Matt)

  • Nano servers
  • New containers

  • Some analysis by Tim Anderson.

  • TPM on the Windows Server foot-print: “With Microsoft trying to get an installed base of more than 8 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?

Weekly OpenStack Check-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 1 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.”
