Think about the cloud as a massive global computer . That paradigm—with developers and users managing hyperscale cloud services within its framework—means tapping into a kind of pattern recognition. Cloud data centers, substations, and fiber are physical components of a cloud motherboard. Genuine cloud operating systems like Fugue can be built..

For several years, cloud adoption by developers, tech companies, and enterprises has been gaining momentum. Global cloud spending is accelerating and market forecasts are impressive . The cloud is often thought of as a collection of remote data centers. It’s generally used that way by organizations when they first experiment with it—or even when.

We're big fans of immutable infrastructure at Luminal (the company behind Fugue ), and we're not shy about it!
 

Immutable infrastructure brings a variety of benefits, including:

 

  • simplifying operations,
  • increasing system reliability, and
  • continuous deployment with fewer failures.

 

To that end, we're excited to collaborate with O'Reilly.

In two previous posts, I explored the concepts of "Minimum Viable Clouds" and "More than Minimum Clouds."

 

To recap, a Minimum Viable Cloud must:

 

  • be an SOA
  • hide implementation
  • be fully automated
  • be a utility
  • have global fault tolerance
  • be Opex

 

A cloud that is More than the Minimum must:

 

  • promote stateless, distributed compute

The M in MVC (Minimum Viable Cloud) implies that there are additional capabilities in a mature cloud implementation beyond those outlined in our previous post, which introduced MVC . Recall those sine qua non MVC requirements:
 
  • Clouds are APIs
  • Clouds are SOAs
  • Clouds Hide Implementation
  • Clouds are Fully Automated
  • Clouds are Utilities
  • .

Every time a new, hot technology appears on the scene, many companies with old, boring technologies slap a sticker on the front of their product, proclaiming it to be a torchbearer for the new tech. It's something of a parlor trick. Certainly this has been the case with cloud technologies. As a result, there's a need to differentiate things that.

Several years ago, NIST produced documents (SP 800 145 & 146) that made admirable and compelling efforts to categorize cloud service offerings with the tripartite taxonomy already in use: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). NIST sought to tighten loose definitions. This was about as.

I've noticed recently that I'm getting quite a bit of grey in my beard. While there are many downsides to being an aging geek (I can't pull all-nighter coding sessions any more without hell to pay for several days), one of the benefits is gaining some perspective on how innovations play out over time. I started building software in the late '80s.

Cloud infrastructure services have allowed our field to gradually abstract computation tasks from long-standing physical restraints. As cloud infrastructure adoption increased, we realized the power and efficiencies of quick deployments and elastic scaling, giving birth to the DevOps movement. We've been steadily directing more of our attention.
