Al on OpenStack, circa Nov 2017
“Its next few moves with new and existing projects, the acceleration of end-user adoption, multi-cloud management tooling, and the embrace of other open source communities will determine whether it stays a niche player in its private cloud habitat, or becomes an alpha competitor across all IT oceans.”

Multi-Cloud Begets Confusion, Calls for Automation
One reason is confusion over how enterprises define multi-cloud: Just over half of those polled defined it as including a combination of either public or private clouds along with on-premise infrastructure. (That is also a widely accepted definition of "hybrid clouds".) Meanwhile, 23 percent of respondents said multi-cloud includes all three: public and private clouds along with their own datacenters.

The multi-cloud myth: Why workload portability is still a pipe dream
‘“PaaS suppliers are actually quite IaaS agnostic,” says Cheung. “So to make an analogy, that means you can lift up the whole house and move the whole house to another place, and that would not require a lot of effort as long as all the underlying infrastructure is there,” he says.’

When should you turn to open source cloud?
'"Cloud Foundry is the standard-bearer for open source PaaS and Kubernetes for container management. NGINX is an open source load balancer that powers over 60% of the top 10,000 websites; AWS use it too. OpenStack is the de facto choice for an open source private cloud," he says.'

Air Force Intelligence Unit Goes Agile
Many astounding before/after factoids and a good description of applying an MVP approach.

Also: "First they directed that defense contractors target applications for their designated open architecture, the Distributed Common Ground System. The architecture amounts to a platform of modular and standardized parts, including VMware virtualization, the Cloud Foundry infrastructure as a service orchestration from Pivotal Software, Red Hat Linux, and hardware from EMC, Dell and Cisco, among other components. Nothing is added to the platform unless it's already industry proven, rather than the agency adopting an emerging technology and then trying to prove its worth by itself, Haga said."

At the same time, 31.4% of companies say that the top challenge to digital transformation is low digital literacy or expertise among employees and leadership. We also learned that 31% of companies view digital transformation as a cost center.”

IBM Builds Private Cloud Stack With Kubernetes And Containers
This week, Big Blue rolled out its new IBM Cloud Private software platform that is designed to enable enterprises to develop on-premises private cloud environments to accelerate app development and allow for easier movement of workloads between their private clouds and public clouds – not only the IBM Cloud but also those from other vendors. Similarly, IBM is leaning on open and container-based technologies for enhanced integration and portability of workloads. The IBM Cloud Private platform is built on Kubernetes, an open-source technology for container orchestration, and will support both Docker containers and Cloud Foundry framework.

By testing throughout the development cycle, and deploying onto an accredited platform, DCGS is able to apply the existing accreditation model using a software’s Certificate-to-Field with a Security Impact Analysis for each new capability. DCGS now operates with an established battle rhythm that has slashed the time for security accreditation/certification from 18 months to 30 working days.

Can agencies seize the moment for modernization?
Part of the problem, according to the General Services Administration's Bill Zielinski, is that many agencies still try to scope out modernization projects with highly specific technical requirements. "We define not only the business outcome that we're trying to achieve," Zielinski said at the FCW-hosted IT modernization event, "but we have that tendency to say, 'and this is explicitly how you're going to do that.'”
Such specific solicitations tend to produce near-identical proposals from industry, he noted, which forces agencies to select based on "lowest price technically acceptable" criteria. Worse, he said, that prescriptive approach denies agencies the opportunity to benefit from new and creative solutions that might surface if they simply described the business capability that's needed.

Cisco, Google Join Forces on Hybrid Cloud
The cloud initiative combines Google's (NASDAQ: GOOGL) de facto standard Kubernetes cluster orchestration platform for managing applications and services across hybrid infrastructure with Cisco's (NASDAQ: CSCO) networking and security expertise. It also leverages Cisco's push into hyper-converged infrastructure. Along with extending security to application containers and other micro-services, the deal would allow users to monitor application behavior running on hybrid platforms, the partners said.

The other pillar of the collaboration is Istio, another open source tool released earlier this year to help manage micro-services via what developers call a "service mesh network." Working with Kubernetes, Istio aims to provide a uniform means of connecting and managing micro-services.

Left in the lurchGlobalisation has marginalised many regions in the rich world
Between 1990 and 2010 the rate of economic convergence across American states slowed to less than half what it had been between 1880 and 1980. It has since fallen close to zero. Rich cities started pulling away from less well-off counterparts (see chart 1). According to the Brookings Institution, a think-tank, in the decade to 2015 productivity growth in American metropolitan areas was highest in the top 10% and the bottom 20% (where, by definition, the baseline was low). Struggling middle-income cities like Scranton fell further behind. A recent report by the OECD found that, in its mostly-rich members, the average productivity gap between the most productive 10% of regions and the bottom 75% widened by nearly 60% over the past 20 years.

Oracle reports its PaaS and IaaS revenue together, which makes understanding its IaaS growth difficult. FY16 to FY17 revenue increased from $0.9bn to $1.4bn, equivalent to 60% YoY growth. The company claims to have added 14,000 IaaS and PaaS customers to OCI since its inception, almost all of them existing customers of its licensed software. Oracle's overall revenue in 2016 was $37bn, so IaaS and PaaS still represent a small slice of the pie.
