Link: GKE On-Prem

Networking considered hard: “The amusing thing is that they wanted to connect a GKE On-Prem install running on VSphere for the demo. They could not get a public IP, so they just used MiniKube. Frankly, I think the demo at #GoogleNext2018 was far more amazing connecting MiniKube.”

Still a lot of stuff on-premises, and people want to move it to public cloud:

‘More than 80 percent of respondents have more than 100 applications under their purview, and a solid majority have a good deal still managed on-premises. The survey finds 74 percent stating at least half of these applications are on-premises. Another 71 percent of respondents see many of their on-premises applications as mission-critical to their business.’

How they’re moving apps:

‘Yet, the report’s authors state, “enterprises are choosing the path of most resistance, unintentionally creating a self-induced cloud skills gap.” That consists of cloud migration strategies that require the highest degree of IT skills — 49 percent cited refactoring or rewriting applications as their primary modernization strategy.

‘One in five, 20 percent, say they are rewriting core applications from scratch using cloud-native PaaS services. Another 28 percent are refactoring applications for the cloud using cloud-natuive and traditional applications. Another 20 percent are outright replacing applications with SaaS-based applications. About 12 percent are taking a “lift-and-shift” approach to simply move entire applications to hosted services.’

Link: Finally, a more coherent IBM story?

‘IBM is pushing their cloud hard than ever before. Even though it is mostly IBM Cloud Private, this is the first time I heard a more consistent hybrid cloud story. They have moved away from OpenStack (completely) and CloudFoundry (for the most part) and building a good hybrid cloud story using Kubernetes. Both he product team and services team seem to be quite excited about the opportunity Kubernetes offers them. Kubernetes on Bare Metal as a service is a step in the right direction. Unlike OpenStack and, to some extent, CloudFoundry, Kubernetes gives IBM a chance to have a more unified story from their infrastructure assets to middleware assets. Their “One Cloud Architecture” push is directed in this direction and helps IBM tell a consistent story across their entire portfolio.’

Link: IBM Brings Kubernetes Service To Bare Metal

‘By extending its managed service to dedicated servers, IBM can deliver Kubernetes in a form that fits any organization’s cloud strategy, he said, such as building a cloud-native machine learning app, processing large workloads or migrating apps that ingest large amounts of data. “This gives developers greater control over where their workloads reside and enables them to isolate workloads to specific servers,” McGee said.’

Link: The Hidden Costs of Cloud Adoption

Despite it being aw some, you still have to pay for public cloud, and it’s pay as you go:

‘“Cloud is an inexpensive and easily accessible technology,” the infrastructure survey concludes. “People consume more, thereby spending more, and forget to control or limit their consumption.”‘

So:

“the market analyst found that 34 percent of enterprises polled said they have over the last year moved applications and data from a public cloud to either hosted private or on-premises private cloud.”
