We have had Git around for more than 15 years, and during that time, it has become a standard de-facto to share code and track code changes. While Git is a superior version control system to most of what we have seen before, it has been 15 years since the first release. Should we be looking for new ways to approach version control systems? Is the time right for the next generation of tools in this area?
Our first episode was about Infrastructure as code, and we feel that it is time to revisit the topic after almost two years. Another reason is the release of the second edition of Infrastructure as Code book by Keif Morris. Thus, in this episode, we revisit the definition of Infrastructure as code and try to summarize what has changed over the years. We hope you like it!

This time we are talking unikernles! Ian Eyberg from NanoVMs joins us to discuss how far this technology is from prime time. And it turns out that you don’t have to be a kernel developer to take advantage of unikernes. Today, there are tools available to package, distribute, and run them locally as well as in the public cloud. While talking to Ian, it felt that the state of the technology is very similar to Linux containers at the beginning of 2010x, just before Docker made Linux containers available for everyone.
The real cloud lock-in is security! Every service/cloud provider has its own levels of granularity regarding resources. Cloud engineering is mainly about compute, storage, and networking and how to make them scale. Scaling security is often left out as it is hard to measure on so many levels.
We think that it is a myth and that we can measure how many steps it takes to add, modify or remove access rights. It all starts with monitoring, knowing what is there in a cloud infrastructure is a very good first step. By making it easy to see and manage access rights, we make it easier for ourselves to keep resources secured.
