Garman reiterated that AWS is working on a VMware version of Outposts – expected in the second half of the year. This will likely lead to a strange situation where Amazon will sell VMware into enterprise data centres.

Still swinging:

> "Jeff Bezos gave the command, 'I want to get off the Oracle database.' And they've been working on this for a few years to try to get off Oracle Database, and get on to the Amazon databases. It's taken Amazon, which is dedicated to doing this, several years, and they are not there yet. Nobody else is going to go through that forced march, to get onto Amazon databases, if Amazon can't even get there without this effort."

AWS’s Snowball Edge
A private cloud box from Amazon:

> The Snowball Edge Compute Optimized with GPU includes an on-board GPU that you can use to do real-time full-motion video analysis & processing, machine learning inferencing, and other highly parallel compute-intensive work. You can launch an sbe-g instance to gain access to the GPU.

It has Lamda and EC2 capability, targeted at data
manipulation and getting it into (and out of?) AWS. There’s a lot of IoT stuff in AWS now, opening their platform up to things like smart cities, power grid management, and thermostats and lights and shit.

Google Cloud Revenue
> When asked about Google’s on-premises strategy, Pichai said the company is “thoughtfully looking at it,” and cited its partnerships with SAP, Pivotal, and VMware. Google also has a hybrid-cloud product with Cisco and its own Kubernetes-based GKE On Prem available to early access customers.

> On-premises data centers remain “a big, big requirement for customers,” and these partnerships help Google address those companies’ needs, Pichai said. When it comes to hybrid cloud, “we are thinking about how to do that better,” Pichai said. “Our overall approach to cloud hybrid modernization I think is the right long-term direction and so we are doing that.”

Cloud Foundry Cult
Owen covers CF Summit Basel:

> “The users we spoke with didn't just see it as a PaaS – it was the underlying philosophy of application delivery and management upon which future developments would be based. The Foundation claims Cloud Foundry saves, on average, 10 weeks of development time and $100,000 per app development cycle. In fact, in its own survey, 92% of users cite cross-platform flexibility as important. If these panelists are gaining such benefits, it's easy to understand why they are so enamored with it.”

> Private clouds owned and self-managed by enterprises can be cheaper than public cloud. The magic number to beat is about $25 per VM-month at 100% utilization. If the cost of the whole stack comes in under this number, then even with the addition of labor to manage that private cloud, it should be cheaper than public cloud. Obviously, with better labor efficiency, unit costs versus public cloud are lowered further, and the relative value of benefits increases. Enterprises unable to achieve a labor efficiency of 300 VMs per engineer are unlikely to beat public cloud on price.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation Accepts Harbor Into CNCF Sandbox
“Harbor is a privately hosted registry, which allows running either on-premises or in any of the major cloud vendors, making it a possibility for organizations that cannot use a public container registry or want to implement a multi-cloud strategy. Harbor started as an internal VMware project and became open source in 2016. Multiple partners, including companies like Pivotal and Rancher, either use Harbor for their container-based environment or work together with Harbor to give the possibility of running the project on their infrastructure. For instance, the Pivotal Container Service includes Harbor as its built-in container registry. For Rancher, Harbor is one of the packages you can deploy to provide a container registry. Moreover, Harbor gives the option to set up multiple instances of these registries on several of these platforms simultaneously and allows replication between them. Through the signing and vulnerability scanning capabilities provided by the project, it turns these into trusted resources.”

Networking considered hard: “The amusing thing is that they wanted to connect a GKE On-Prem install running on VSphere for the demo. They could not get a public IP, so they just used MiniKube. Frankly, I think the demo at #GoogleNext2018 was far more amazing connecting MiniKube.”

Enterprises taking path of greatest resistance to cloud, survey shows
Still a lot of stuff on-premises, and people want to move it to public cloud:

'More than 80 percent of respondents have more than 100 applications under their purview, and a solid majority have a good deal still managed on-premises. The survey finds 74 percent stating at least half of these applications are on-premises. Another 71 percent of respondents see many of their on-premises applications as mission-critical to their business.'

How they're moving apps:

'Yet, the report's authors state, "enterprises are choosing the path of most resistance, unintentionally creating a self-induced cloud skills gap." That consists of cloud migration strategies that require the highest degree of IT skills -- 49 percent cited refactoring or rewriting applications as their primary modernization strategy.

'One in five, 20 percent, say they are rewriting core applications from scratch using cloud-native PaaS services. Another 28 percent are refactoring applications for the cloud using cloud-natuive and traditional applications. Another 20 percent are outright replacing applications with SaaS-based applications. About 12 percent are taking a "lift-and-shift" approach to simply move entire applications to hosted services.'

Finally, a more coherent IBM story?
‘IBM is pushing their cloud hard than ever before. Even though it is mostly IBM Cloud Private, this is the first time I heard a more consistent hybrid cloud story. They have moved away from OpenStack (completely) and CloudFoundry (for the most part) and building a good hybrid cloud story using Kubernetes. Both he product team and services team seem to be quite excited about the opportunity Kubernetes offers them. Kubernetes on Bare Metal as a service is a step in the right direction. Unlike OpenStack and, to some extent, CloudFoundry, Kubernetes gives IBM a chance to have a more unified story from their infrastructure assets to middleware assets. Their “One Cloud Architecture” push is directed in this direction and helps IBM tell a consistent story across their entire portfolio.’

IBM Brings Kubernetes Service To Bare Metal
‘By extending its managed service to dedicated servers, IBM can deliver Kubernetes in a form that fits any organization's cloud strategy, he said, such as building a cloud-native machine learning app, processing large workloads or migrating apps that ingest large amounts of data. "This gives developers greater control over where their workloads reside and enables them to isolate workloads to specific servers," McGee said.’

The Hidden Costs of Cloud Adoption
Despite it being aw some, you still have to pay for public cloud, and it's pay as you go:

'“Cloud is an inexpensive and easily accessible technology,” the infrastructure survey concludes. “People consume more, thereby spending more, and forget to control or limit their consumption."'


"the market analyst found that 34 percent of enterprises polled said they have over the last year moved applications and data from a public cloud to either hosted private or on-premises private cloud."

The era of the cloud’s total dominance is drawing to a close - Life on the edge
A bit of an over-statement. What they want to say is "lots of new computing from IoT and pocket devices," or something.

"many new applications have to act fast. According to some estimates, self-driving cars generate as much as 25 gigabytes per hour, nearly 30 times more than a high-definition video stream. Before so many data are uploaded, and driving instructions sent back, the vehicle may well already have hit that pedestrian suddenly crossing the street."

Vendors talk about why AzureStack is good for their markets
This is especially true in “industrial Internet of Things” applications, where the likes of ABB and GE collect data from sensors on their equipment and analyze it to help with things like predictive maintenance and capacity planning. Often, for performance and/or security reasons, the compute gear that does the analytics is placed directly on oil rigs, power plants, factory floors, in mines, and so on. Sometimes it’s connected to the cloud, and sometimes it isn’t.

“The message from our customers was, ‘We will only start this journey with you if you can put all the infrastructure we need on our premises, isolated from the internet, so we can be assured of security, of governance, of adequate latency for decision making,’” Ciaran Flanagan, group VP and head of ABB's Global Datacenter business, said. He predicted that for industrial IoT, between 60 percent and 70 percent of processing, transactions, and data management is going to happen at the edge.

Multi-Cloud Begets Confusion, Calls for Automation
One reason is confusion over how enterprises define multi-cloud: Just over half of those polled defined it as including a combination of either public or private clouds along with on-premise infrastructure. (That is also a widely accepted definition of "hybrid clouds".) Meanwhile, 23 percent of respondents said multi-cloud includes all three: public and private clouds along with their own datacenters.

IBM Builds Private Cloud Stack With Kubernetes And Containers
This week, Big Blue rolled out its new IBM Cloud Private software platform that is designed to enable enterprises to develop on-premises private cloud environments to accelerate app development and allow for easier movement of workloads between their private clouds and public clouds – not only the IBM Cloud but also those from other vendors. Similarly, IBM is leaning on open and container-based technologies for enhanced integration and portability of workloads. The IBM Cloud Private platform is built on Kubernetes, an open-source technology for container orchestration, and will support both Docker containers and Cloud Foundry framework.

Elephant in the room: Doug Cutting on Hadoop and core enterprise tech going open source • The Register
Here, I'm mostly interests in the idea of managed private cloud crossed with open source: you don't expect public cloud companies to open source their stuff, so would you expect managed private cloud vendors to keep closed too?

Also, open source is still only something considered for infrastructure software, not so much applications.

Commentary from 451’s Peter ffoulkes: The transformation of IT to a ‘client service’ model is notable and gaining momentum. While this is occurring in many forms, cloud-oriented projects are consolidating in an activity level at three times the level of other supporting projects, with internal private cloud projects leading the pack at 37%. Over the last year of the Cloud Computing Study there has been some pullback of public cloud activity. While these projects still outweigh traditional IT or ‘cloud-readiness’ projects at a similar level, there has been a small but noticeable shift toward private cloud project activity. (via
