114: The Cloud Pod looks forward to rewriting Terraform code... again
72 / 100

On The Cloud Pod this week, the team admits to using the podcast as a way to figure out what day it is. Justin also relents and includes Azure news because he couldn’t handle any more Oracle mobile apps announcements. 

A big thanks to this week’s sponsors:

  • Foghorn Consulting, which provides full-stack cloud solutions with a focus on strategy, planning and execution for enterprises seeking to take advantage of the transformative capabilities of AWS, Google Cloud and Azure.

This week’s highlights

General News: Not Cool News

  • 💣 The FBI arrests a man for his plan to kill “70% of the internet” in an AWS bomb attack. 70% is quite a stretch but we’re sure it would have caused a crappy day for a lot of people.  
  • 🥳 Hashicorp has released its Boundary 0.2 release with several new features. We’re really excited about this. 
  • 😐 Announcing HashiCorp Terraform 0.15 General Availability. If you believe it, this is really great news. 

Amazon Web Services: Good At Compromising

Google Cloud Platform: Colossal

Azure: Someone Out There Cares

  • 👍 User data through Azure Instance Metadata Service is now generally available. It would be great to use this with VMWare. 
  • 🙂 Microsoft announces encryption is now supported at the host level with AKS. Compliance people will be happy with this one.
  • 🙁 Microsoft announces plans to establish its first datacenter region in Malaysia. Just an announcement — don’t get too excited because it’s not opening yet. 

TCP Lightning Round

⚡ Jonathan takes the cake and this week’s point, leaving scores at Justin (6), Ryan (3), Jonathan (6).
