This week on The Cloud Pod, Justin is away so the rest of the team has taken the opportunity to throw him under the bus.    

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

JEDI: Play Nice

  • 🚸 Pentagon officials are considering pulling the plug on the star-crossed JEDI cloud-computing project. Reminds us of when we were kids and our parents took toys away when we couldn’t play nice together.

Amazon Web Services: We’ve Made All the Money

Google Cloud Platform: Smells A Bit

  • 😬 Google announces Agent Assist for Chat is now in Preview. Hopefully this is better than predictive text, which is often highly inappropriate.
  • 👃 Google releases a handy new Google Cloud, AWS and Azure product map. This press release has an Oracle smell about it. 
  • 👏 Browse and query Google Cloud Spanner databases from Visual Studio Code. We can see this being welcomed by developers.  

Azure: So Pretty

  • 🤣 Azure releases a new logo. We think it kind of looks like a Google icon. 
  • 🤗 Multiple new features for Azure VPN Gateway are now generally available. Really great features! 
  • 🤷 Enabling Azure Site Recovery while creating Azure Virtual Machines is now generally available. Something about this feels clunky.
  • 🤨 The next installment of the low code development series is now available. Spoiler alert: it’s not that riveting.   

TCP Lightning Round

⚡ Ryan blatantly stole Justin’s jokes but still takes this week’s point, leaving scores at Justin (7), Ryan (4), Jonathan (7).
