With Coté worn out from travel and confused with expenses, we talk about the unique-ish problems of selling software to government agencies. There's 6 problems they have, and three types of motivation for changing up their enterprise software. We also (mostly ignorantly) talk about Cloudera and Hortonworks merging, as well as filing expenses.

There’s lots of monitoring and systems management M&A and funding this week, so we talk about the cycle of systems management companies. It seems like Atlassian is starting up and operations product line with the OpsGeniue acquisition, and PagerDuty has a whopping valuation at $1.3bn.

After some rumination, Coté thins that the people backing “serverless” are just wangling to make it mean “doing programming with containers on clouds.” That is, just programming. At some point, it meant an event based system hosted in public clouds (AWS Lamda). Also, we discuss Cisco buying Duo, potential EBITA problems from Broadcom buying CA, and robot pizza. Of course, with Coté having just moved to Amsterdam, there’s some Amsterdam talk.
Episode 141: Broadcom acquiring CA, AT&T acquiring AlienVault, the mysteries of cloud native vendor product management
July 12th, 2018 | 1 hr 7 secs
We try to discern the strategy behind two acquisitions this week: Broadcom buying CA and AT&T buying AlienVault. Seems fine. Meanwhile, you get to join conversation as we talk about how much different product management seems at cloud native vendors than traditional, “enterprise product management.”

Why would a company buy Docker? With “near triple digit revenue,” perhaps there’s a good business model to match the interest in free, but, in turn, why would an acquirer want to pay for free? We speculate wildly, and without spreadsheets. Also, lots of people have been funded, there’s a new bundle of kubernetes releases, and we discuss t-shirts.

There’s a new IaaS magic quadrant out that we finally take a look at. Plus, with some nerd-fighting in the kubernetes world, we discuss the point of all these blinking cursors.

“Packaging,” let’s talk about it - still your beating heart, dear listeners! We discuss the news, eats, and entertainment from ChefConf and then dip into the news from the OpenStack summit. As we meander between those two we also talk about kubernetes Helm, packaging, and how Docker is (they say) going to save you $50m in computer costs.

Conference season is upon us so we recap all the announcements from Google I/O and Microsoft Build. We also discuss the Mesosphere funding and attempt to deceiver what exactly they are doing with DC/OS. Finally, we have recommendations for Mother’s Day gifts, making kid lunches and some talk of the Lego Millennium Falcon.

There’s a lot of container and kubernetes news this week what with KubeCon. We discuss some highlights from there, including Google’s gVisor project, angling to make life more secure in cloud native land. We then discuss Red Hat’s Operators, Chef, and related ways to package up applications and related configuration for deployment onto cloud platforms. Plus, once again, we finally solve how to calendar better.

Eating dumplings, it turns out, is more complicated than just sticking them in your dumpling hole, as Coté found out in Bangkok thanks to a Singaporean friend. We’re live-to-tape from DevOpsDays Jakarta this episode, just Coté and Matt Ray. We discuss the Pentagon’s stubbornness of (seemingly) picking just one cloud provider for their major cloud project and then have an oddly lengthy discussion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
