PWK is a K8s playground which allows users to run K8s clusters in a matter of seconds. It gives the experience of having a free Alpine Linux Virtual Machine in browser. Under the hood Docker-in-Docker (DinD) is used to give the effect of multiple VMs/PCs.
A cloud-native organization's goal is to provide its business with an effective, sustainable means of innovating. This eBook shares cloud-native practices and technologies to fully automate the application stack infrastructure layers.
For physical infrastructure, Digital Rebar functions as a fully integrated Cobbler/Foreman + Ansible Tower (or Juju + MaaS) with the added bonus of being able to configure RAID, IPMI and BIOS. Furthermore, Digital Rebar is not opinionated about scripting tools so you can mix and match Chef, Puppet, Ansible, SaltStack, or even Bash.
For cloud infrastructure, Digital Rebar provides a hybrid cluster install like Terraform, but with an ongoing iterative operation and upgrade strategy.
Should at least be buzzword-compatible. #cloudcomputing
Der Schwerpunkt der Konferenz liegt auf dem Enterprise Einsatz der Cloud Computing Software OpenStack. Namhafte Entwickler und Vertreter großer Unternehmen werden die Einführung und den Betrieb von OpenStack anhand von Best Practices und Case Studies vorstellen.

Ebenfalls keine gute Nachricht ist das Intercloud-Ende für die Initiatoren der Open-Source-Cloud-Software Openstack, auf der die Cisco-Cloud-Plattform basiert. Vor Cisco hatte schon HP seiner Openstack-Cloud-Lösung Helion den Stecker gezogen. Auch Openstack-Mitentwickler Rackspace hat der Lösung mittlerweile den Rücken gekehrt.
Over the last year I've spoken with many people at large organizations in the thick of improving how they do software. This “journey” goes by many names: “digital transformation,” putting a “cloud strategy” in place, or as my company Pivotal puts it, becoming “cloud native.” Some are annoyingly clever enough to just call it “what we’ve always done.”
