Technology Short Take 90

Welcome to Technology Short Take 90! This post is a bit shorter than most, as I’ve been on the road quite a bit recently. Nevertheless, there’s hopefully something here you’ll find useful.



Cloud Computing/Cloud Management

  • Google is rolling out Kubernetes 1.8 to Google Container Engine; this blog post talks about some of the new features and functionality.
  • Lior Kamrat has a multi-part series on an architecture that blends Mesosphere DC/OS, Azure, Docker, and VMware vSphere. Check out the beginning of the series here.

Operating Systems/Applications


  • I’m clearly behind the times in some of my reading, as this great article by J Metz was just brought to my attention recently. J does a good job of laying out the various competing forces that drive product/technology evolution and selection in the storage space, though one might argue these same forces are at work in other areas besides just storage.


Career/Soft Skills

Thanks for reading! Feel free to hit me up on Twitter if you have feedback or would like to share a link I should include in a future Technology Short Take.
