Episode 102: The Cloud Pod is NOT OK
64 / 100

It’s a Wednesday so things could be better, but spare a thought for the team as they battle Mother Nature on The Cloud Pod this week.

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: The Elastic Kerfuffle

Amazon Web Services: Let’s Talk

Google Cloud Platform: Making Peter’s Dreams Come True

  • 🤗 Google announces the general availability of its comprehensive zero trust product offering, BeyondCorp Enterprise. An amazing name for a product.
  • 😃 Google launches Cloud Operations Sandbox to bring Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) culture to its customers. A really good way to learn about something that’s been around forever.
  • 😭 Introducing WebSockets, HTTP/2 and gRPC bidirectional streams for Cloud Run. But then the security team tells you it’s not supported and you have to rip it out.   
  • 🏃‍♀️ Build your own workout app in five steps, without coding, on AppSheet. Peter’s app won’t count past one step or one ounce.
  • 🤷 Google wants to help you work at warp-speed in the BigQuery UI. We don’t know if this is radical but it’s nice.
