The IT Management & Cloud Podcast

The IT Management & Cloud Podcast

Canada

The IT Management Podcast is a mostly weekly conversation between John Willis and myself on the topic of data centers, computer infrastructure, and cloud computing. You know “IT Management.” Both of us have backgrounds in this space - John much so more than me with his long history in the Tivoli world - and enjoy talking at length on the week’s news, new ideas in the space, and the history of the IT Management industry. We’re also often lucky enough to have on prominent innovators and users in the IT Management space and occasionally do special episodes of a topical nature, such as from conferences or with special guests. (If you’re interested in being on or know someone you’d like on, drop us a line.)

Episodes

067: Fried chicken, Docker Swarm, tech journalism, or, "but that sweet @MattRay interpolation, tho."  

 

Is anyone minding the business side of these container orchestration plays? That’s the main topic we discuss after doing over recent Docker announcements. We then discuss the state of tech journalism and throw out a free business plan for left-ish fried chicken slinging.

Summary

With two surprise acquisitions this week we have a lot of synergies to discuss. We cover Samsung picking up Joyent, and Microsoft buying LinkedIn. Highly related is a recent article trying to explain what’s going on with private equity buying tech companies. Then, we discuss the big news from chef we’ve been waiting for: the announcement of habitat.

We lacked the scale required to compete effectively in the large, rapidly growing and fiercely competitive cloud computing market. Now, that changes,” Microsoft acquires LinkedIn Press Release from Microsoft M&A Synergies Theoretical WTF’ing: Slideshare, extended to all Office formats. Login with LinkedIn + AD = SSO won. Also: “Massively scaling the reach and engagement of LinkedIn by using the network to power the social and identity layers of Microsoft’s ecosystem of over one billion customers. Think about things like LinkedIn’s graph interwoven throughout Outlook, Calendar, Active Directory, Office, Windows, Skype, Dynamics, Cortana, Bing and more.” 433 million professionals in LinkedIn (from MSFT internal memo). …but it’s probably all the same people, tho. “Along with the new growth in our Office 365 commercial and Dynamics businesses this deal is key to our bold ambition to reinvent productivity and business processes.” (MSFT CEO, from MSFT internal memo) Ads and dumb-AI context: “This combination will make it possible for new experiences such as a LinkedIn newsfeed that serves up articles based on the project you are working on and Office suggesting an expert to connect with via LinkedIn to help with a task you’re trying to complete. As these experiences get more intelligent and delightful, the LinkedIn and Office 365 engagement will grow. And in turn, new opportunities will be created for monetization through individual and organization subscriptions and targeted advertising.” (MSFT CEO, from MSFT internal memo) LinkedIn growth since Dec, 2008: “Our team has grown from 338 people to over 10,000, our membership from 32M to over 433M and our revenue from $78M to over $3 billion.” (MSFT internal memo). Others from memo: Lydia training inline in MSFT apps; paid content in MSFT apps (a la Spiceworks); HR and recruiting. Deal PR deck - pretty good. I can see how the social graph and all the “semantic web sit” in LinkedIn, crossed with MSFT assets works well. One take on ads, doesn’t like the Office angle, cause privacy, but oh wait: Google Apps and GMail It’s the 1 dataset MS can keep out of Facebook and Google’s hands.
https://trackchanges.postlight.com/9-things-microsoft-could-do-with-linkedin–2aec55c2bc72#.iv7cofd13 “Microsoft could improve LinkedIn”: Microsoft designs for people who have to do boring things with computers in order to make money. It’s the 9–5 software vendor. Previous big acquisitions: Nokia for $7.2bn, Skype for $8.5bn, Xamarin for $400m. From 451 M&A coverage: I-banker stuff: “Microsoft will pay $196 per share to acquire LinkedIn, a 50% bump up from where it was trading ahead of the deal announcement, although well behind the $250 each share was worth in November. The price tag values LinkedIn at 8.2x trailing revenue.” “The company [Microsoft] must find new ways to differentiate. Integrations with LinkedIn offer potential functionality that will be challenging to duplicate. When the two companies are joined, there will be multiple ways that LinkedIn’s member network, and the data from that, will go into improving Microsoft’s Office and Dynamics apps, besides the other benefits from running a com
065: The High-level WTF on "Scheduling"  

 

We spend this week talking about workload scheduling, starting with Mesos. It’s a fun ride from CONTROL-M to Lambda, along with Cloud Foundry and serverless. So get ready to beat a horse into glue. Plus, how to handle gifts for father’s day and the usual recommendations at the end.

Twitter’s kinda big deal, maybe you’ve heard of them. Over 1000 services manage Twitter, over 1,000,000 cores. http://twitter.github.io Heron is a newly open-sourced replacement for Storm. Supporting all of our own code isn’t sustainable, need an open source community. The Ellen Degeneres photo tweet from the 2015 Academy Awards knocked a couple of services over. 25% traffic spike, hit 255k/tweets per second. 2016 Academy Awards had 2x the traffic, no failures. 30,000 node Mesos cluster (probably largest). “We don’t like being the biggest of anything, we find the edge cases.” 130,000,000 containers launched daily. Some of their acquisitions were in public cloud, they don’t move them in-house. They’re actually pushing new services out to AWS where they can. Vine, TellApart, Crashlytics, MoPub, BlueFin, etc. Ad-serving is mostly in AWS.

063: The Snack-Tracker, Uber in Austin, & Tater Salad

Employees at Kabam, the online-gaming startup worth $1 billion, recently felt like there was a decrease in the number of office snack stands. Although the company denies it, some believe the snack stands are now placed more sporadically in order to reduce the employees’ frequency of snack consumption by making it a little harder to get to them. No Uber in Austin Brandon sets us straight on the details. Coté defends the uber-haters. Will Containers Replace Hypervisors, Almost Certainly Yes TL;DR; is the title :) Randy Bias, the “pets vs. cattle” godfather, makes a strong case for hypervisors being on the way out. Once all the legacy apps are re-written to be in containers (cloud native) or decom’ed (you know, in the future), and we don’t want to run multiple OSes (so don’t need the driver handling that hypervisors give us)…no need for hypervisors. QED. Cloud chief Diane Greene on how Google can beat Amazon and Microsoft A brief interview “Q: How will Google differentiate against AWS and Microsoft? A: Only 5 percent of workloads are in the public cloud. Effectively you’re riding another company’s innovation curve for free. We’ve open-sourced a lot of technologies like Kubernetes and TensorFlow. As we add more features, we’ll be able to share a lot more strengths with applications.” - can OSS be used to attack on-premises cloud? Not in my tater salad! BONUS LINKS! Apprenda buys Kismatic “Apprenda will also take the lead in building out Windows support for Kubernetes, which has been Linux focused,” said Sinclair Schuller, chief executive of Apprenda. Do you even pop-up, bro? Apprenda pivoted towards Kubernetes recently, Kismatic was building “Enterprise friendly” Kubernetes “Per Incident” pricing is really hard to scale. Perhaps Brandon has comments on open source business models. “[I]t is what most would call a dynamic market.” Digging into Microsoft’s Cloud Numbers Charts! Microsoft has something like $102.6bn cash on-hand. Smoke ’em if you got ’em! Internet Giants Resume Data Center Spending “Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook spent a combined $23 billion in 2015 on capital projects. During an investment flurry from 2011 to last year, the companies’ combined capex nearly tripled.” “Parsimony at Alphabet is all relative. The company’s $9.9 billion in capital expenditures for 2015 was nearly more than the combined capex spending of Microsoft and Amazon.” Facebook Sponsors the Republican National Convention The social network says its participation — which will include a lounge — should not be interpreted as an endorsement of any candidate, issue or political party.

OpenStack is crawling its way into the plateau of productivity, we submit, during this week of the OpenStack Summit.

This suggests at least a 20% CAGR in public cloud workloads over the next five years. In our view, a near- tripling of the public-Cloud-based workload mix represents a monumental architectural shift, which shows no signs of abating and is likely to create a major ripple effect across the entire technology landscape.” - “Amazon Seeing ‘Momentous’ Change of Guard as Public Cloud ‘Booms,’ Says JP Morgan” How does Wall Street work, again?

If you’re in the container orchestration space, do you need to open source your platform? We use Mesosphere’s recent open sourcing of it all to discuss that topic, plus marketing in the container world and an ongoing arm-chair stratagizing of what’s going on the infrastructure software market right now with respect to containers.

With Matt and Brandon fresh back from IBM’s InterConnect conference we talk about IBM’s announcements - mostly cloud related. It looks like IBM is doin’ alright, well, except for all those quarters of revenue decline aside, but maybe that’s the just what has to be stomached to evolve. We also discuss working with the corporate editorial desk and the concept of “serverless programming.”

After discussing PCI and the proper sound track for reading such stuff, we go over the 2016 RightScale cloud survey (it seems cloud is a thing!). We talk a bit about what’s so attractive about Docker and IDC’s estimate that global IT spending in 2016 will be around $2.6T, with the US seeing growth but the rest of the world sort of slowing down. Also, our instant coffee recommendation.
