What's New in Tech

Google Cloud Networking Incident #19009. Small network problem causing dropped packets led to a cascading effect of failures that took hours to recover. Google did shed some load to recover the issue. Check out the full post mortem.

Planes aren't flying and some grounded due to a national GPS issue in USA. GPS is tier-0 infrastructure if we can't fly without it.

Upcoming Changes to Our Cloud Business. Joyent is shutting down their on-demand cloud offering and focusing on single-tenant cloud. There isn't a lot of room for smaller cloud providers when the big companies are really really big.

Why We’re Relicensing CockroachDB. In order to respond to growing competition of AWS and other cloud providers offering hosted OSS services, CockroachDB will add a restriction that it may not be used in a commercial database-as-a-service (DBaaS) without a license agreement with Cockroach Labs.

GoCD is a continuous delivery tool created by ThoughtWorks. It’s great to see the continued progress on GoCD with the new Kubernetes integrations–and you can check it out for yourself at
