A developer over at StackMonkey wrote a bot that sells instances of his OpenStack cluster for Bitcoin, and the Twitter user @obitcoin is using it on Twitter. Truly we live in a frightening but awfully convenient digital age, made more convenient by devs like Kord Campbell, the developer in question.

3. Four Point DevOps Story

What solution or best practices do you see solving balkanized, silo development tooling, fractured governance, disconnected workflow, and incomplete status reporting when working with distributed outsourced teams or across internal teams?

4. DBaaS, OpenStack and Trove 101: Introduction to the Basics

While DBaaS is an interesting concept that introduces a completely new way of approaching an application’s database infrastructure, and can bring enterprises easily scalable, and financially flexible platforms, it should not be considered a silver bullet.

5. Creating a Simple Cluster with GlassFish

In this post, I’ll go through the first steps of getting Glassfish installed and clustered with Apache to proxy requests. All this will be set up using one CentOS and one Fedora instance, but the steps should require little to no tweaking for other Linux platforms.
