121: Blue Origin finds new “dummy” to go to space
76 / 100

Is sending the former CEO of one of the biggest technology companies in the world to space a good idea? On The Cloud Pod this week, the team discusses the potential economic catastrophe that could follow if Jeff Bezos becomes space junk. 

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.
  • Jumpcloud, which provides cloud directory services, enables remote access, eases onboarding and offboarding of users and enables zero trust access models.

This week’s highlights

General News: Frenemies 

Amazon Web Services: Watch This Space

Google Cloud Platform: Sneaky Sales Tactics

  • 🤷 Google announces the release of container-native Cloud DNS for Kubernetes. Powerful building block or Achilles heel? 
  • 🤔 Google announces new capabilities for Cloud Asset Inventory. Makes so much sense to come from the provider because they know what you have.   
  • 🤭 Google releases new Microsoft and Windows demos on Google Cloud Demo center. This is absolutely not a sales tool… 
  • 😺 Introducing Google Cloud Service, Kf for Cloud Foundry, on Kubernetes. Another good pathway to Google.
  • 🐍 Google’s Artifact repository now supports Java, Node.JS and Python. We think it’s great it’s included Python.  
  • 🧞 Google is releasing a fully managed zero-trust security solution using traffic director. We wish there was a demo for this.
