I thought I’d label 2015 as the year of the surrendering to the cloud. And by this I do not mean that mass adoption that every software vendor was waiting for, but surrendering to (1) the fact that cloud is now pervasive and it is no longer up for a debate and (2) to the dominance of Amazon Web Services.

Why the developer cloud will be the only one
It has been a while since my last blog. My new engagement with Flexiant is keeping myself so busy with customers that I have plenty of reasons to think a lot but not enough time to write what I'm thinking about. Customers are indeed one the most interesting...

I blogged some time ago about "How to Prepare a Self-Configuring WordPress Image with Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator"
This is the first in a two series blog post that explains how to use Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator facilities to completely automate a Wordpress deployment.

My thoughts on the Inktank acquisition
Following the news today regarding the acquisition of Inktank by Red Hat, lots of people - me included - started to wonder how would this potentially conflict with the Gluster acquisition completed by Red Hat itself nearly two years ago. Twitter has been ho...
