Solving the Cloud Skills Shortage

Why has AWS partnered with NetApp to deliver AWS FSx ONTAP? This same question popped into Keith Townsend’s head at this past Cloud Field, where he attended as a delegate. Take a look at Keith’s thoughts on this partnership and what solutions have been created because of it.


Managing the Control Plane: AWS

AWS drives the evolution of cloud computing. Widely seen as the industry leader in the field, they don’t put on the brakes when it comes to growing services and adding new features. The Gestalt IT staff writes that AWS’s development of Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) “greatly simplify deploying, managing, and maintaining a container orchestrator system.” Check out the Gestalt IT take on the latest from AWS and check out the AWS presentations on our website!

Writing for Six Feet Up, Calvin Hendryx-Parker focuses on Cloud Field Day presenter Amazon Web Services. As a delegate at Cloud Field Day, Calvin was able to see AWS present on how they are working to simplify the cloud experience for their users.

VMware on AWS VPC Route Table Example

At Cloud Field Day this month, Alex Neihaus got a deep dive into VMware’s AWS integration. When this was first announced in 2016, he saw it as two walled gardens put next to each other. After the event, he’s beginning to see some portholes getting put in to see to the other side. Alex saw the presentation as confirming that VMware fundamentally perceives AWS as a hardware platform for its hypervisor, rather than a virtualization platform. He has a lot of interesting takeaways, so be sure to read the whole piece.
