Deploy and scale data-rich applications in minutes and with ease. Mesosphere DC/OS includes everything you need to elastically run containerized apps and data services in production.

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Cloud Zone (January 09 - January 16). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Going Rogue with PaaS: Bringing Shadow IT into the Light

  • Shadow IT, aka Rogue IT, has a bad rep. And it probably should. It can compromise security, increase IT costs, result in dangerous leakage of data and IP, and get people fired. It also generates friction and thus expands the already too wide rift between developers and IT.

2. Networking Predictions: 2015 Edition

  • Happy New Year! The year is off to a great start and we are excited to see what 2015 will bring to the networking space. I have a few predictions of my own (think policy and disaggregation) that were recently published in Network World. What are your networking predictions for 2015?

3. Sharing Azure Active Directory SSO Access Tokens Across Multiple Native Mobile Apps

  • This post will cover how to share access tokens to AAD resources across multiple mobile apps. This is very useful if the enterprise (or any mobile app vendor) wants to provide convenience for the users by not asking them to authenticate on every mobile app the user has.

4. The Azure Portal A to Z

  • This post takes a very direct route into bringing you up to speed about what is available. As its central starting point, this post uses the portal to describe the technology that is available. A new portal is also underway at Microsoft, and includes technology not found on the original portal.

5. The Cloudcast #176 - Dev,Ops & VC Perspective on Modern Apps

  • Aaron and Brian talk to former Netflix Cloud Architect and current VC Adrian Cockcroft about how to properly position products/tools/services to Devs vs Ops, the role of open-source in accelerating adoption, how open-source companies can make money, and some tips getting DevOps adopted within the Enterprise.
