Episode 101: AWS plays the Parler games
69 / 100

On The Cloud Pod this week, news has been a bit slow coming out of the Cloud Providers; the team suspects they might be curled up on the floor in fetal position after the events of last year.

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.
  • Open Raven, the cloud native data protection platform that automates policy monitoring and enforcement. Auto-discover, classify, monitor and protect your sensitive data.

This week’s highlights

General News: Ryan Doesn’t Want to Wear Pants

Amazon Web Services: Family Time

Google Cloud Platform: Ruby Red

  • 👌 Google Cloud Function is bringing support for Ruby, a popular, general-purpose programming language. YES.
  • 📚 Google kicks off the new year with free Google Cloud training. We might just take them up on this!

Azure: In Azure We Trust

  • 😏 Azure SQL Database named among the top three databases of 2020. It doesn’t mean people like it, just that it’s popular.
  • 🦹‍♀️ Backup for Azure Managed Disk is in limited preview. Nothing says “no security concerns” quite like taking a copy of production data and storing it somewhere else. 
  • 🤗 Azure and HITRUST publish a shared responsibility matrix. We wanted to make a joke here but this is actually super helpful. 

TCP Lightning Round
