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? What might be some of the next stages coming in 2021 or 2022?  FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

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

Todd has been a guest before, but Carmen is new. Tell us a little bit about both of your backgrounds.Topic 2 - Let start by talking about AzureStack, in a broader context. 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

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?

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

You’ve been at the forefront of really interesting tech in the past. Can you tell us a little bit about your background?Topic 2 - Over the last few months, we’ve been digging into newer distributed architecture elements (Jamstack, GraphQL, Serverless, etc.). But we haven’t dug into the role of data in these architectures. Help us understand this 4th generation architecture, or client-serverless, and the role of data.Topic 3 - Data is still stored somewhere, but its usage is now made up of a bunch of data coming together in various contexts. How does Fauna fit into this new world when clients and APIs play as much of a role as “the database”?Topic 4 - As you talk to people that come from a SQL / Relational-DB background, how does the discussion go in terms of how things change and some of the common bottlenecks/problems that Fauna can solve for them?  Topic 5 - Databases have traditionally been difficult to scale, protect, maintain, etc. How does you enable the data layer or API access to now follow a NoOps model? Topic 6 - Where are the best places for people to engage to learn more about how to not only use the Jamstack architecture, but apply the principles around Fauna for Data/API management? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Before we dig into today’s topic, can you give us a little bit of your background and how you became focused in this area? Topic 2 - Production used to be a pretty sacred and untouched environment. Now we’re seeing the need to create chaos in production, test in production, and know more about how things actually work in production. Let’s talk about this concept of “profiling”.  Topic 3 - People often talk about having to “instrument their code” to be able to get feedback. How does that differ from profiling, and what unique things does an application need to be profiled in production? Topic 4 - On the surface, this seems like it would add quite a bit of overhead to the applications. How do you manage to find the right balance of performance and visibility? Topic 5 - Help us understand how profiling fits into the bigger picture of all the tools needs - Logging, APM, Observability, etc? Topic 6 - Is there a profile of who needs profiling? Is this every application team, or just for specific applications (e.g. event-streaming, etc.)? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Give us an overview of the Managed Security Provider market and some of the ways it’s evolved since the pandemic started.Topic 2 - In today’s world, there no longer is a security perimeter for companies in the way they’ve known for years. What is replacing how companies define perimeters - is identity the new perimeter? Topic 3 - Can you talk about what kind of Identity management companies need today, and maybe talk through some of the nuances across the disciplines like Identity and Access Management (IAM),  Privileged Access Management (PAM), and Identity Governance and Administration (IGA). Topic 4 - Where does MFA (multi-factor authentication) sit within a strong IAM strategy? For example enforcing policies across cloud user accounts?Topic 5 - We’ve  seen some data suggesting over 80%+ of organizations are using a multi-cloud strategy, can you talk about some of the challenges around trying to manage IAM acros clouds? For example (Different policies, tools and terminologies across clouds) Topic 6 - The security world is beginning to talk about “unified zero trust security models”. Can you talk about what that means and maybe give us a background about DIvvycloud/Rapid7 and how they are working to solve a lot of these topics around IAM.  FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

You’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of things at Microsoft. Tell us about your current role, as well as how it’s been to see the transition at Microsoft from software company to cloud company?Topic 2 - Lets start with the concept of migration. Is there a framework that companies use to think about what to migrate to the public cloud?Topic 3 - Transitions and Testing feel like they are critical for any migration to be successful. How do companies manage to get through an application being in one location vs. being in the cloud? Topic 4 - As companies think about the economics &/or ROI of migration, how do they think about all the elements involved (e.g. cost to change an application, cost savings of not owning a data center, cost to re-skill existing staff or hire new, etc..)? Topic 5 - COVID-19 has changed everything these past 6 months. Have you seen the profile of a migration change significantly since the pandemic started, or have well-known migration profiles already in place? (e.g. different applications to migration, different pace of migration, etc.)Topic 6 - Do you find that migrations are being driven top-down at companies, or are they decentralized by groups? How are they being organized these days? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet
