The case for flying Southwest and Oracle buying Dyn, and containers
Episode 80 · November 29th, 2016 · 45 mins 37 secs
About this Episode
With all the domestic, direct flight, the gang lays out the case for Southwest. Coté salivates at the prospect but is worried about sitting next to chicken cages, but there's plenty of $500 shoe sales people on board. We also discuss Oracle buying Dyn, AWS's power, the looming cloud success of Microsoft, and, of course, containers.
Octogenarian style: It’s episode 80! The Brittle Bones Anniversary.

Oracle Buys Dyn
- Coté needs a dial-a-friend on this one.
- Fleshing out their cloud coverage
- This is what Coté frequently concluded when doing cloud strategy
- Softlayer and AWS compared
Sorry Oracle, Taking Down AWS is Alibaba’s Job
- “Alibaba Cloud president Simon Hu has said the company is working to surpass AWS within four years.”
- We’ll see if YUGEly can wrap his head around IaaS protectionism.
- “You only get one hill to die on, so choose wisely”
- New AWS-native PaaS from Etsy/Stripe/SquareSpace veterans
- Coté: I feel like I’ve read this blog post before. Maybe I even wrote it? So much typing.
Microsoft Joins the Linux Foundation - we’re beyond the cats and dogs mirror!
- Steve Ballmer is spinning in his grave

Recent Coté Nonsense
Red Hat wants to make Kubernetes boring (and successful)
- They’ve certainly made OpenStack boring (zing!)
- “Not that Red Hat is calling Kubernetes "boring." Instead, they're calling it "Enterprise-Ready," which is basically the same thing.”
- I dig that Matt Asay style. Dude knows how to pick a quick topic.
The End of General Purpose Computing
- More precisely, as the title says “The End of the General Purpose Operating System“
- “What we're witnessing in the market is the development of vertically integrated stacks”
- “In all of these cases the operating system is an implementation detail of the higher level software. It's not intended to be directly managed, or at least managed to the same degree as the general purpose OS you're running today.”
Apple Drops AirPort Routers
- I’ve got 3 of them, pretty solid.
- We don’t talk about Apple much here. Possible topic: what’s up with Apple now-a-days?
Trump vs. Tech
- “Now we will have a president whose affinity for high-tech seems limited to Twitter bullying”
- Interesting when you think that the heads of Google, Microsoft, Apple and probably Amazon (Bezos owns Washington Post) are all at odds with Trump. Facebook is trying to not piss anyone off. Not sure if we want to talk about it, so maybe it’s just a show note.
