Does it come from the features, from the distribution, from the creator(s), or from how it is run?Do customers value ‘free”, or “stability” or “customizability” (features) or “operationalization”? How much of an advantage or disadvantage (or neutral) is the OSS companies offering cloud services across clouds? UNKNOWNS AND UNCERTAINTIESHow will the VC community view the changes in competitive landscape and licensing? How does it impact their future funding models?FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet
Joseph “JJ” Jacks (@asynchio, Founder/General Partner OSS Capital) talks about how Commercial OSS has evolved, coopetition with cloud providers, and what's next for Commercial OSS business models and communities. SHOW: 492SHOW SPONSOR LINKS:CloudZero - Cloud Cost Intelligence for Engineering TeamsBMC Wants to Know if your business is on its A-GameBMC Autonomous Digital EnterpriseDatadog Security Monitoring Homepage - Modern Monitoring and AnalyticsTry Datadog yourself by starting a free, 14-day trial today.

For those that don’t already know you, tell us a little bit about your background, and some of the things you’re focused on today. Topic 2 - You’ve been tracking the commercialization of open-source projects for quite a while now. What big trends have you seen evolve over the last two decades (from Red Hat to MongoDB) Topic 3 - Even in the face of new OSS-centric offerings from the cloud providers, we still continue to see companies getting funded. What is the sentiment in the VC-communities about what the new competitive landscape looks like? Are there new rules in the game? Topic 4 - We’ve recently seen MongoDB and Elastic changing their licensing model to SSPL. The stock of both companies continues to rise. Is what they are doing a short-term “fix” to a competitive threat, or a critical mistake? Does licensing need to evolve as a company matures? Topic 5 - Are there fundamental shifts in how OSS companies are created and eventually operationalized happening now? Topic 6 - Where do you see commercial OSS trending over the next 5 years, and what big changes need to happen to make those realities happen?FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Tell us about the concept and some of the things companies can do to embrace it?  Topic 4 - LinearB is a tool/platform that gives teams visibility into what’s happening with projects (status/velocity), backlogs, bottlenecks, etc. How do you think about transparency and accountability for teams, since software projects can get fairly complex? Topic 5 - How much does it help in conversations with business leaders, who might not have as much understanding of how development teams work, to have the data trends right in front of them?Topic 6 - You make a point that you can see “burnout” happening within teams or around individuals. What are some tips to reduce that, or address it in ways that it can lead to better long-term conditions within teams?FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Your focus is on something called “DPUs”. Help us understand what a DPU is, and the core technical challenges it solves. Topic 4 - As we see DPUs start to come into use, design/architecture-wise or SmartNICs, what are the key things that architects need to think about? And who is thinking about DPUs - infra architects, AI teams, etc? Topic 5 - Where are the most common places where we’ll see DPUs / SmartNICs deployed today (how are they offered)? Can common applications take advantage of them, or do they need to be written to be DPU-aware? “Putting a computer in front of the computer”Topic 6 - Give us some perspective on what the next couple of years might look like as this amount of processing and throughput becomes available, affordable and distributed to different platforms and clouds. FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Tell us a little bit about your background, and what makes you passionate about helping analytics teams improve their businesses? Topic 2 - Can we start by talking about how you think about Analytics teams vs. Data Science teams vs. AI/ML teams? Are these different only in name, or are their functional/skill differences, or places where one group is more appropriate than others? Topic 3 - Let’s talk about Analytics in the context of workflows. Are you seeing it still be mostly a business analyst “offline” function, or are more workflows and applications introducing more “real-time” analytics capabilities? Topic 4 - We talk a lot on this show about DevOps and Developer Productivity, in the context of more frequently changing applications. How does that apply to Analytics groups? Where do they have bottlenecks today? How do they get around those bottlenecks?Topic 5 - How do platforms like the Alteryx Analytics Platform help teams improve their analytics velocity and productivity? And how much do you find that the right tools help improve how teams organize, or do they need to be well organized to best take advantage of the right tools? Topic 6 - Can you give us some examples of the types of results that companies often achieve when they better align their analytics teams to self-service and automated environments?FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

You’re both really well known in the DevOps communities, but give us the TL;DR of your backgrounds for anyone not familiar with your work. Topic 2 - Whether people are tired of the term “Digital Transformation” or not, change is a huge part of our industry, especially as it relates to corporate culture and organization. What’s the framing for that type of discussion in 2021? Topic 3 - I’ve heard you both say “technology is easy, people are hard”. How do you think about these conflicts of transformation, whether people’s individual motivations aren’t always aligned to a business goal? Topic 4 - One of the biggest differences between existing companies and start-ups is the level of self-service that they build around their systems. The self-service systems allow experimentation, allow automated deployments, etc. But is there a way to bring a concept of automated governance to these end-to-end models? Topic 5 - Oftentimes transformations are aligned with cloud-native technologies, cloud-native apps. The model of Ops in a cloud-native world is different. What are some of the areas you both focus on to make cloud-native Ops successful, or better aligned to the technology part of transformations? Topic 6 - What are some of the best and worst “getting started” steps that you see various groups (or companies) take in their transformation journeys? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

We’ve known each other for a while. You’ve had tremendous success in Leadership, Product and Marketing roles in the past. Tell our audience a little bit of your background and what ultimately brought you to your role at CEO of Observe. Topic 1a - For people that aren’t familiar, what does Observe bring to the market? Topic 2 - We wanted to do a little “before-and-after”, and focus on what it means to be a “Cloud-First” company. What are the most obvious differences between a company like Observe and a company like Dell or EMC?    Topic 3 - From a product perspective, how do you think about roadmaps and the ways in which you enable new features for customers? Since Observe runs only in the public cloud, how much do you need to think about integrating with the native cloud services? Topic 4 - You have deep expertise in creating marketing messaging, but so much of how customers learn about your products is no longer the company website. How do you think about reaching potential customers, or generally getting your message into the market?Topic 5 - Traditional IT was often aligned to centralized buying and architecture groups. How much does Cloud-First change the consumption models for companies - experimentation, on-demand usage, dealing with scaling issues, etc.Topic 6 - Overall, what are some of the biggest lessons you’ve learned about the Cloud-First approach as you’ve transitioned over the last 3+ years. FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

We’ve known you for quite a while, going back to working together on very early Cloud stuff. You’ve always enjoyed being focused on complex, distributed systems. Tell us what you’re focused on these days. Topic 2 - Let’s talk about this concept of “event-driven” and flow. Where did it come from, what does it do, why is it valuable to application designers?   Topic 2a - What is a “flow” and how is it related to event-driven?Topic 3 - Events are data. We’ve had relational databases for data, and then we had NoSQL or eventually-consistent databases for data. Are events a new type of data, or a new way to deal with data in a different context?  (channels, replays, etc.)Topic 4 - Can we talk through an example of an event-driven application, or an event-driven integration between multiple organizations? How is it new/different? What unique capabilities does it bring now?  (Kafka, IoT, API Gateways, etc.)Topic 5 - Cloud made IT self-service. Serverless made Ops become on-demand. If I’m a business leader, what does event-driven give us?  Topic 6 - Where are we in the maturity of event-driven architectures?

Did anybody miss them? Did anybody do them well? More companies adopted the public cloud, since they couldn’t get into their data centers.But we also found out the public cloud isn’t infinite resources (e.g. Azure had to prioritize existing customers, healthcare customers). Long-term investments matter. Did you have a favorite video conference service in 2020?AWS: $46B, Azure: $30B-ish , GCP: $12-13B, Alibaba: $6-8B - Azure still doesn’t break out their revenues.OSS-companies are growing their Cloud/Managed business (MongoDB, Confluent, RedisLabs, Red Hat, etc. - as well as others like VMware, Nutanix)More companies are going cloud-only in their offerings (Snowflake, Tecton, Observ, etc.). Atlassian is moving away from the on-prem offerings (over next couple years)ARM chips made their name in mobile phones, and now they are poised to take over desktops and public cloud (cheaper, faster) - NVIDIA bought ARMAWS had an outage just before Thanksgiving - nobody is actually sure how AWS works behind the scenes. Hybrid Cloud is now officially a thing - AWS, Azure and GCP all have offerings, as well as every traditional vendor. 2021 PREDICTIONS: Our 2020 Predictions from last yearAaron’s PredictionsGitLab gets gobbled upEvent Driven Architecture (FaaS/Serverless) hits early majority status(agreeing with Brian) 2021 will be the

The “brand” has been in the market for quite a while, but it really went through an evolution about a year ago - different services add, different buying options, etc. Help understand the broader AzureStack story.Topic 3 - When most people think of HCI, they think about Compute, Storage, and VMs - simplifying the complexity of those systems. Now the world is moving more to the cloud, but on-premises still remains. Let’s talk about the concept of HCI becoming an extended cloud service and how that’s evolving.Topic 4 - VMs, Containers, Backup/Recovery, Auto-Updates are now all built-in to AzureStackHCI. Which group (or groups) is managing AzureStackHCI in a typical company? Topic 5 - How important is it to support disconnected (from the cloud) AzureStack HCI instances? Can there be scenarios that are partially-disconnected? Topic 6 - Are you seeing any new or unexpected use-cases because of COVID-19, or now that HCI can be viewed as an extension of the public cloud?  FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Tell us about some of your most recent projects, and all the places where people can find your training? Topic 2 - Let’s talk about the State of Kubernetes, level of maturity of users/usage. Where do you think we are at the end of 2020? Topic 3 - Who do you find are trying to learn and use Kubernetes, more Infra/Ops, or AppDev, or somewhere in between (DevOps, DevSecOps, SRE, etc.)?Topic 3a - Where do you see people succeeding, and where are they still struggling to adjust to the requirements of Kubernetes? Topic 4 - The ecosystem of projects around Kubernetes (immutable Linux, Operators, Service Mesh, Prometheus, OPA, Serverless/Knative, etc.) has gotten very broad. How do you find people are dealing with all these moving pieces? Topic 5 - There are a lot of ways to engage with Kubernetes these days - DIY (OSS), vendor distributions, Kubernetes on your laptop, web IDEs, Hosted Services (simple & complex). What do you recommend to people, or do you see trends about how people best engage with Kubernetes? Topic 6 - Do you think it’s OK that Kubernetes doesn’t have a “developer model”, but rather many different options? Do you think this evolves in 2021?  FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

It’s always exciting to talk to new companies. You were doing some pretty interesting things at Uber prior to starting Tecton, so tell us a little bit about that experience and then what motivated you to start Tecton? Topic 2 - There are lots of Data/AI/ML tools and platforms out there. Tecton talks about “great models need great features”. Give us a high-level overview of the Tecton platform and the perspective you bring to solving complex business problems.Topic 3 - After reading the papers on the Uber Michelangelo platform, it’s clear that today’s interactions aren’t a bunch of individual “decisions”, but layers of decisions made on ever-changing data (the UberEATS example). Why does business need a new approach to how they interact with data? Topic 4 - When I think about earlier approaches for companies to “harness data for analytics”, there was always the problem of data silos. Do you find that companies need to organize themselves different, not just organize their data, to be able to overcome those silo challenges? Does it take a much more product-centric approach vs. the traditional “analyst” approach?Topic 5 - Every new company and platform needs to find product-market fit. What do you see as early “fits” for the Tecton platform? Topic 6 - How much data-science expertise does a company need today to be able to leverage Tecton, and how much does the platform lower the barrier to entry? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

We’ve been following your work for a while (Nicira, OpenShift networking, etc), but tell our audience a little bit about your background.Topic 2 - A few years ago I wrote an article that said, “if you’re in networking, the #1 skill you should learn is Linux”. Why has there been so much shift from “traditional networking” to so many new capabilities being implemented in software, and specifically Linux?Topic 3 - Help us understand these two new concepts - eBPF and Cilium. It’s new packet filtering, it’s container networking, it’s multi-cluster networking, it can help with observability - lots going on here. Topic 4 - What are some of the gaps in today’s networking/filtering/observability stacks that can improve with eBPF/Cilium?   Topic 5 - We’ve seen quite a few companies evolve from expertise in an open-source project to commercial offerings. What lessons have you learned from other companies that shape how Isovalent will both go-to-market and also engage with ecosystem partners? Topic 6 - What are some of the common use-cases or applications you see that highlight the value of the Isovalent stack? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

The world of SAP has evolved quite a bit over the last decade. Tell us about your background and what led you to focus on bringing SAP to the cloud.Topic 2 - A decade ago, SAP was very focused on this new HANA database and most people still thought of them as an ERP company. Since then, they have bought a lot of companies, especially in the SaaS space (SuccessFactors, Concur, Hipmonk, Qualtrics, etc.). Can you give us a high-level overview of what relationship SAP has with their customers these days?Topic 3 - Lemongrass is focused on helping customers move SAP to the AWS Cloud. What types of applications are being moved, and why are customers moving them?Topic 4 -  Lemongrass talks about 5 Waves of Innovations to get SAP into AWS (Migrate, FinOps/SysOps/DevOps, 4/HANA, Big Data, AI). Where are most customers on that journey today? Does it tend to be consistent across industries? Topic 5 - AWS often talks about a “shared responsibility model” for application-availability or security. How does that model apply to SAP applications, and what role does Lemongrass play for customers on an on-going basis?Topic 6 - Have you seen the pandemic change how companies are looking at their SAP environments and whether or not it makes them do more in the cloud? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet
