71 / 100

On The Cloud Pod this week, Ryan is in the doghouse and he’s been suspended (with full pay). Plus, we’re comfortably numb with AWS Cloud NGFW, GCP suspends hosts for big savings, and Azure is once again shutting the Front Door on us. 

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 Cloud NGFW cost calculations leaves us comfortably numb.  
  • 🚨 GCP boasts big savings by temporarily suspending unneeded hosts.
  • 🚨 Azure is once again shutting the Front Door with a new, modern cloud service.
