Google OpenSources its Containers manager. Great news for the Cloud world.

If you have a look at the very GitHub project page (https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/kubernetes) you'll get as surprised as me about the claim "Kubernetes can run anywhere!". Will it be so among their close competitors too?

It's so simple we're still still amazed about it's potential to boost multi-cloud concept.
 
We've opensourced Hydra, a framework to allow active-active multi-cloud service provisioning. The key point are client-side load balancing, service discovery and uber-fault-tolerance:

Hydra servers run in each cloud, accepting technical and functional load info. It will suggest from server-side a ready-for-you server (worker) list to provide a given service.

Client-side consumers will do the calls among the list in its preferred algorithm (shuffle, round-robin, always first and next if failure...). Hydra itself  is self managed as another service.

Why running all your processes in one single Cloud? Hydra could become a "Process Liberation Army" in the Cloud ecosystem.

Extremely interesting approach of Goldman-Sachs to a MongoDB private cloud. I suggest you all to dig from slide 6 to 15, mainly in the process definition. Enjoy.

What companies call Private cloud is, as far as I have seen, no more than anticipating the purchase of unneeded HW, hoping that a number of internal customers will squeeze in it in the near future. Someone anticipates de money and probably gets a scale discount that future projects can benefit from, as well as immediate availability that traditional models can only dream off.

But one of the key benefits of real Cloud is that you pay what you use. Rent, not buy. If the project is terminated, you just cancel de rental. If you overestimated capacity, you just scale down and pay less. If the team takes a week off, you do not pay a penny for the development and test environments during that week. How do "private clouds" deal with this?

"Private cloud" is a nice marketing name but to the typical implementation I would give it a more realistic name of "buying HW in a smart way".

As you may have realized, the name, the logo and the description of the community have changed, but not the spirit behind it. This has been done to reflect that all the posted opinions belong to the posters, not to any precise company.

Those are great news, because it will become even freer than before (which it was quite a lot). The only restrictions from now on are just two: do not spam and do not disclose private information of your company.

Keep on posting really good stuff as always.

Who said JavaScript was slow? Believe it or not, the video you can admire here has been taken running JavaScript code (1.000.000 C++ lines ported to Asm.js, the fastest subset of JavaScript) calling WebGL primitives in a browser... :-o

We're not the biggest Google customer anymore (110,000 employees). We've been overrun by an entire nation (10,000,000 students, teachers and parents). Curiously, I'm not sad but proud of having the right decision in the right moment :-D

The visionary behind such a good decision was +PEDRO SUJA GOFFIN, also member of this community, which makes me even prouder.

Anyway, I guess we're still the largest corporate customer ;-)

How many Albert Einsteins have died without a chance to share their gift to the mankind? Be prepared for a worldwide new threshold in the intelligence standard. I'm beginning to feel dumber and, thinking of my offspring, I'm happier to let them live in a better world.

Besides I agree on NFC thoughts, embracing Bitcoin will hurt their position with worldwide regulators. With this sentence PayPal has made it harder to get allowed by the system to sell financial products, because BitCoin is not good or bad, it is out of the system. There's no Schrödinger Bank, in and out of the system at once.
The leader of the payments business looks to the future and says Bitcoin is a good idea -- but not yet actually a currency. Tap-to-pay, meanwhile, is a dud. Read this article by Stephen Shankland on CNET News.

I believe this tool is great for the challengers in the IaaS arena. Yes, Amazon has a customer portfolio that might be reluctant to try other players like Google Compute Engine. So, how can challengers break the "I trust what I know" barrier?

With almost no investment in load balancing, these customers could try a multi-cloud solution for their apps, where the "best" cloud gets the majority of the traffic. Definition of "best" is a customer decision. It can be "best response time", maybe "best cost per request"... tailored to customer needs.

So, several IaaS vendors can be put in a sane competition based on actual performance and not only on reputation gained in the past....

Great for challengers!!!

The three "S" that are the existence reason of any cloud:

Speed - Scale - Survive

Nowadays Cloud Computing is the only way to achieve all of them at once.

I agree DRM is a good thing for a wider adoption of pure HTML apps. I didn't read the standard yet, but I'm thinking of a slightly different usage:

How about using it to protect API data transfer? or maybe the very downloaded script code? even further: getting security tokens out of the browser inspectable side?

Worth of a digging...
W3C's decision to publish a DRM framework will keep the Web relevant and useful.

You all know I do love Node.js, and some of you have noticed me one of its competitors (maybe the only one) Vert.x is getting quite a momentum. You can get in the video a personal opinion about the comparison by yourself.

My position: 

- Vert.x is a great (huge) piece of SW. It covers most of the XXI century demanded programming paradigms.

- Maybe it covers too much. Some things it offers are not going to be used ever by average programs (including large corporations ones).

- It claims you have to deal with the low level detail to do hard things in Node.js but, I assume it as adding black magic layers to the framework: If you don't know how it's working you'll misuse it for sure. It reminds me of EJBs which they were a good thing in theory. Extending the event bus to a wider scope than the thread (multi-host, client side...) amazes and scares me a little bit at once.

- Even though it's Open Source, there are two corporations behind it: VMware and Oracle (in the Java side). I'm thinking of the Oracle/Google legal dispute and the Vert.x author project withdrawal when he left VMware: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/01/14/opensource_ownership/ just a little bit disturbing.

- Finally, Vert.x is prepared for a share-nothing asynchronous-only programming model, BUT it natively offers some scape tools to do other kind of programs. Maybe you'll end up using a technically great new toy to do old tricks. I've never missed what they're offering me to compete Node.js

Anyway, we're playing around Vert.x because it's a engineering masterpiece and the benchmarks look great (we're doing our own). Maybe I'm wrong but it smells like an overkill for most uses. Once we test it I'll change my mind if it worths it. Coherency is for weak people, you know ;-).
