154: The Cloud Pod Is QUIC and Rusty This Week
82 / 100

On The Cloud Pod this week, order in the court! Plus tackling those notorious latency issues with AWS Local Zones, things get quick and rusty with AWS s2n-quic, and GCP flexes with Dataplex data mesh.

A big thanks to this week’s sponsor, 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

  • 🚨 AWS takes on network latency issues — its customers’ #1 complaint — with AWS Local Zones.
  • 🚨 AWS is getting quick and rusty this week with s2n-quic, its new open-source protocol for Rust implementation.
  • 🚨 GCP announces Dataplex in Google Cloud is now generally available, enabling the creation of the data mesh view.

Top Quotes  

  • 💡 “We must be hitting some huge brick walls in web performance that are really hurting certain application workloads that require low latency, because if you look at both these announcements back-to-back, they’re really trying to improve performance.”
  • 💡 “This is definitely a hard problem for companies to solve. Data is not going to be uniform, and you’re going to have many different sources of it, and you want it to all play nice together so it’s usable across a larger view than it used to be. I like these types of solutions, where they’re applying governance and a way of doing things that’s not just everyone reinventing these wheels — which is what we’ve been doing up until now.”

AWS: Goodbye Network Latency?

  • 🌐 With AWS’ announcement of the global expansion of AWS Local Zones, will its customers’ number one complaint (network latency) be finally addressed? No doubt a good move forward.
  • 💨 AWS is also getting quick and rusty this week with the introduction of s2n-quic, the new open-source QUIC protocol for Rust implementation. For encryption nerds, this is it.
  • 👯 The general availability of AWS Backup for Amazon S3 is sure to be a great enablement — not to mention a massive cost saving for those using the age-old solution of full data replication between buckets.
  • 🧾 Amazon comes to the rescue with auto-adjusting budgets — something to add to budgets, not a tool to replace them. Super valuable nonetheless!
