Relationships matter in the Cloud

There is also a one kind of interesting relationship between an application and its infrastructure. That relationship is about to change a big time when applications will be more cloud native and they demand fully automated cloud based infrastructure through APIs.

How to farm your servers

There is quite an old anecdote in IT how to classify your servers running your services. And it still seems to hold true in the era of cloud computing - at least it has for now. It states, that you should divide your farm to pets and cattle and treat them accordingly.

The Golden Cage of Public Cloud

Cross-cloud portability, that one great argument against using specific cloud provider to it's full extent. This is also kind of often used by competing cloud providers as a leverage to get at least some business from a client coming their way.

The Golden Cage - Term used in IT to represent a vendor lock-in situation, where customer is forced to stay within a vendor, a product or a service because of architectural, contractual or other specific reasons, which make "escaping" too complicated or expensive

Cybercom invest in both OpenStack and AWS. Is that a stupid strategy?

Why OpenStack?

OpenStack is a free and open-source software platform for cloud computing, mostly deployed as an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) in own data centers.

Why AWS?

In the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Worldwide, for the 6th straight year, Gartner placed Amazon Web Services the number #1 public cloud service provider.

Public Cloud - Someone else's Data Center or something else?

There's been some time this one internet meme has been going around. It says: "There is no cloud - it's just someone else's computer ".

You might agree with this statement, or you might not, but it's a good catch phrase. And good catch phrases are easy to relate to.

But if you think on a bigger scale, not just computers or servers, but on an enterprise level and on a data center infrastructure level. Is it actually that here is no cloud, there is just someone else's data center.

A quick look to Cybercom Cloud upgrade

Cybercom Cloud is based on OpenStack technology. We have run OpenStack since 2013. Our first installation ran on Folsom release and since then, the setup has been reinstalled two times. First at the end of 2013, it was replaced by a new Grizzly cloud with Neutron networking, and second time on 2014 when we moved to Icehouse release by building a new cloud. On 2015 we decided to make another upgrade, and this time we made a non-disruptive in-place upgrade.
