CodeTalk: Key Market Dynamics for Kubernetes, AWS, and Microservices
For this week's episode, we're offered a hard reset on market dynamics for Kubernetes, AWS, Microservices, and Containers from one of our favorite distributed computing thinkers, Bryan Cantrill (CTO of Joyent).
Hope you enjoy the show!
In this episode, we'll answer questions and dig into topics like:
How has AWS become what Microsoft was in the 1990s, when Windows' success was a foregone conclusion? The challenge when you become so dominant, is that you become vulnerable to the Innovator’s Dilemma. And, where is the ceiling for AWS? We'll offer a break-down of the mythology that AWS is the loss-leader for Amazon’s retail business.
When does it make sense to own and operate your own cloud? When companies like Samsung buy companies like Joyent to operate their own, what does that look like for the rest of Fortune 500’s rent v. buy calculus?
Kubernetes’ crown as the lingua franca for container orchestration brings its advantages for container adoption momentum, but issues with containers in production carry steep operational complexity (this is distributed computing, after all)… and Kubernetes should heed the “complexity death lesson” of OpenStack.
- When microservices burn down the ranch, what starts in the good name of simplicity also has the potential to result in cascading system failure, where often the technical debtors are long gone to new jobs while others are left back at the ranch dealing with the inferno. Here, you'll get a western-themed discussion about microservices gone wild in production, complete with a "yak-shaving" reference.
