CLOUD NEWS

  • Cloudera to go private as KKR & CD&R grab it for $5.3B - Back when Hadoop was top banana in the data storage space, Cloudera was flying high, but in 2021, movers to the cloud are looking for more automation. This data analytics company was no fool - they see going private as a way to fund their evolution.
  • Getting Started with Amazon ECS Anywhere – Now Generally Available - Still have to run applications on-prem? AWS is now making it easier to manage with its new version of ECS (Elastic Container Service), which allows you to use the same container orchestration software you’d use remotely. Your on-prem applications just got leaner!
  • Oracle pledges to power global operations with 100% renewable energy - Mega enterprise software provider Oracle is talking a pretty big game, projecting 100% renewable energy in all their facilities by 2025. They’ve already gotten a head start with all their European Cloud regions currently running this way.
  • Salesforce, AWS announce extended partnership with further two-way integration - Salesforce, meet AWS. AWS, Salesforce. Building on their existing partnership, developers building with both will now be able to access data from either platform and have that appear as if native in both cases. This should open up a whole new world of ease of development.
  • Google announces the Firmina subsea cable between the US and Argentina - South America is about to get more connected. Google’s newest subsea cable project vows to improve access to its cloud services in a region that, at present, boasts only one Google data centre over in Chile. Expect a faster, smoother experience, developers!
  • Google opens Workspace to everyone - Heard about this one? Here’s everything you need to know about Google Workspace (formerly G-Suite) with all the new bells and whistles, now open to everyone - minus the price tag. The idea was to enhance integration for a more seamless working experience across Gmail, Docs, etc. Rumour has it their “Spaces” is a ringer for Slack…
