Great to be making a splash in Singapore today, talking OpenStack in Action with partners like 1-Net. And we managed to check off an item on Claire's list yesterday with high tea at Raffles!

Accelerating development means giving developers the tools to be great wherever they need to run them. Delighted to see Juju charms of the AppScale PAAS, now instantly available on every cloud. Enjoy!

Go, #Ubuntu in every sector (cloud, desktops and phones)!! Just don't forget many of us will use "real desktops" for a loooong time, yet   ;-)
Godspeed!

Take St Patrick's day and add a double Streisand effect for comic relief. Perfect.

I for one welcome my military junta overlords.

It is not what you do, but what you are seen doing. Which is at odds with a world increasingly online, where privacy is eroding. Still, modern Thai Culture™ was only invented around 1940 (when mandates were made requiring 'polite' traditional dress, not topless) so it is unsurprising people still get it wrong sometimes and require the enlightenment of the Ministry of Culture to explain what their culture is. http://thaiwomantalks.com/2011/05/01/toplessness-in-thai-culture-the-mammary-truth/ for a writeup of the last time MoC put on this song and dance.

Mexico, thank you for a great day's discussions on OpenStack in action! And thanks for your colourful hospitality. Will be back soon. Looking forward to a LatAm coastal weekend and more Stacking in São Paulo on Monday :)

Charles puts it very eloquently - Juju gives you a service oriented modelling system that transcends operating systems and clouds.
 
I've spent my week diving deep into deploying #Windows  Workloads with #Juju .  Thanks to our friends over at +Cloudbase Solutions  I've come out the other end very successful in my endeavors. The experience is very native and akin to what I see deploying workloads on Ubuntu. Its still very new, very much pioneering as Support has (rather silently I add!) landed in the 1.21 series of Juju to support deploying Windows workloads!

This is simply amazing to me - we've got two ecosystems that at one time were literally at odds with one another, now sharing workloads seamlessly. I think I said it best at FOSDEM 2015 - "We're giving you a declarative language to define your deployments, and make them inter-operate. We get out of your way so you can innovate" 

This work that's been done primarily by CloudBase is an awesome testament to what a vibrant community can do! I applaud you Cloudbase, this has been an excellent journey together. I look forward to seeing what the future brings for you and your travels down the road with Juju.   #deployhappy

Companies building larger private clouds often want to buy the same hardware that runs the biggest public clouds, and now they can!
 
This week, QCT and Canonical extended their partnership to next-generation managed cloud. Read our original announcement here.

We are products of our complex history. To suppress history and historical figures is to lose your own identity, and worse, to lose the memory upon which change is built.
Professor Jonathan Jansen, President of the South African Institute of Race Relations, has described the  #RhodesMustFall movement as “anti-educational and anti-progressive” and questions the justifications given by those who have benefited from Rhodes Scholarships to now “spit” in the face of British colonialist Cecil John Rhodes.

Has been a fantastic few days in NYC building clouds and discussing both elastic and snappy systems, large and small. Lovely to have been here in spring but now, apparently, winter is coming :)

Brazil is one of my favourite places in the world, even when it's demonstrating. Yesterday in São Paulo we demonstrated - OpenStack, MAAS, Juju, SDNs! Lovely to see friends and technologists again. Also, good to see citizens speaking out against the wrongs in their society.

Love the idea of teams reusing one anothers work that easily. Now we just need to get those Atlassian charms available to anyone with a single command!
 
I got to play with a bunch of these technologies, recently, when setting up Atlassian products on a little mini-cloud for my group at work. What has been great, already, has been the ability to do extremely fast recoveries and, since our deployment has already worked out so many bugs, other groups have started to setup Atlassian installations and for them it is as simple as drag-and-drop. Another great benefit is being able to test upgrades and changes on developer machines, risk free, then deploying with mere seconds of unnoticed downtime.

+Anders Sandblad​ they are a huge headache! Probably my worst experience ever installing a piece of software (which is why I ended up with the task instead of a System Administrator). That is why I like Juju and Charms so much: I don't have to remember the dozens of steps I took to make things work. Just modify a script and drag-and-drop! I ended up making a charm for each: Crowd, Jira, Confluence, Stash, Crucible/FishEye and Bamboo. Unfortunately, the hosts they were built on were so limited by our IT/IS department that I couldn't make them as reusable outside the company as I would like. (All files hosted on a local server because internet access from the hosts is not allowed. Stuff like that.) I'm a Phabricator fan, personally :). It is MUCH nicer, in my opinion, at least.

This was a great intro for my company, which is Windows-centric, to the huge array of tools available from the Linux community that they have been missing out on.
