Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Cloud Zone (Sept 26 to Oct 2). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Everything You Need to Know About the Shellshock Bash Bug

The hype says that Shellshock is in the same league as Heartbleed. But in all seriousness, it does have the potential to be a biggie, so I wanted to put together something definitive both for me to get to grips with the situation and for others to dissect the hype from the true underlying risk.

2. The Cloudcast #162 - Building and Managing Scalable SaaS Services

On this episode of the Cloudcast, Aaron & Brian talk with Manoj Chaudhary (CTO & VP of Engineering @loggly) about building and managing massively scalable SaaS applications.

3. High Availability in Horizontally-Scaled Applications

The networking industry has a somewhat unique relationship with high availability. For compute, storage, and applications, failures are somewhat tolerable because they tend to be more isolated (a single server going down rarely impacts the rest of the servers).

4. On Docker and Kubernetes on CloudStack

While the buzz around Docker has been truly amazing and a community has grown over night, some may think that this signals the end of the cloud. I think it is far from the truth as Docker may indeed become the killer app of the cloud.

5. Bernard Golden: PaaS, Standards and Open Source

Last but not least in my series of four videos from the Cloud Standards Customer Council is an interview with Bernard Golden. Bernard, who is the VP of strategy at ActiveState, provided an industry perspective talk entitled: What Should PaaS Standards Look Like.

Learn how moving from a traditional, on-premises delivery model to a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy is a high-stakes, bet-the-company game for independent software vendors. Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.
