5 Questions Everyone's Asking About Microservices (Question 1)

One of the joys of my role is that I’m often talking to customers (or potential customers) about their concerns, their plans, and their strategies for moving their business forward based on open source technologies.

This article touches on five questions, in no particular order, that everyone should ask about microservices. It's based on experiences from interactions with organizations in the process of conquering microservices for existing development and for delivering modern applications.

3 More Pitfalls Everyone Should Avoid with Hybrid Multicloud (webinar)

hybrid multicloud
Back in 2018 we put together the first version of the talk about 3 pitfalls everyone should avoid with hybrid multicloud.

This talk was recorded and such a popular talk that it was top rated at Red Hat Summit 2018. It also garnered attention with a few of our customers which resulted in a tour through the middle of the US to present on-site.

After all this, we published a four part series of articles that outlines our thoughts. Later that year we were approached to help with a book you can now download for free, Multicloud Portability for Dummies, which is strongly based on the articles.

So let's look at the upcoming sequel.
