Work Tech Blog Issue 2019.48

Estimated reading time: 2 mins

Blog issue number 2019.48 is about cloud and some other interesting topics.

Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

We are starting to evolve to use the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) beside the other big ones. Together with our consulting partner NordCloud we consolidated our already existing GCP accounts and prepared some other stuff around. There are still some tasks left open, but we will be ready to go soon. Nevertheless this week I have started to poke around with some pretty cool features. The preemptible instances in GCP are a real bummer - especially if you have workloads like CI/CD pipelines. Well, I am pretty sure that we will give it a try with our GitLab on-premises installation.

CFP DevConv.CZ 2020

Sadly, my CFP's were not elected for the DecConv.CZ in Brno 2020. But I am going to submit them for the DevOpsCon Berlin 2020 CFP soon. Never give up!

Elastic Cloud Enterprise

This week we had our second onboarding call with the Elastic support team. It's cool to work together with you now too!

AWS RDS CA change

If you did not noticed it, AWS is going to rotate their Certificate Authority! If you are using encrypted database connections, which you should, you should plan this change soon. We did the change in our maintenance window during this week.

Closing

  • Doing Linux since 2000 and containers since 2009. Like to hack new and interesting stuff. Containers, Python, DevOps, automation and so on. Interested in science and I like to read (if I found the time). Einstein said "Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited." - I say "The distance between faith and knowledge is infinite. (c) by me". Interesting contacts are always welcome - nice to meet you out there - if you like, do not hesitate and contact me!
