👉 What is Identity-Native Infrastructure Access?
 
 
What the largest tech companies like Google and Facebook have discovered as they have grown their infrastructure is that traditional access control systems do not scale. Not only does the risk of a breach increase with each secret, but forcing developers to juggle hundreds of credentials to do their jobs limits productivity and encourages insecure workarounds.

The largest companies in the world have discovered that identity-based access is the way out of the dilemma.

This O'Reilly book will explain the concept of identity-based infrastructure access, and how it differs from more common older approaches based on secrets.

Using AWS Spot instances to leverage 90% Savings
 
 
Spot instances are ideal for Big Data, CI/CD runners, Instances leveraged with batch processing, and Development and Testing. They provide you with up to 90% savings. They are computing capacity that is not in use and available for a shorter period of time.

Spot Instances are provisioned by bid price rather than a fixed price per hour, if the current bid price exceeds the one offered, the instances provisioned get terminated and assigned to another AWS customer or allocated to on-demand requests.

Does Kubernetes really give you multicloud portability?   ✅
 
 
All in all, deploying to a managed Kubernetes can’t be considered fully portable (or the silver bullet for portability), as there are add-ons or services that you would need to install and manage to ensure the application is deployed and configured as it is supposed to be.

You are spending less time on the core components of the deployment topology, and most of the cloud-dependent configurations come into play when you wish to have critical capabilities.

Microsoft said it signed a "multi-year" deal with Nvidia to build a new supercomputer hosted in Azure and powered by Nvidia's GPUs, networking and AI software for training AI systems. Roughly two years ago, Microsoft announced a partnership with OpenAI, the AI lab with which it has a close commercial relationship, to build what the tech giant called an "AI Supercomputer" running in the Azure cloud. Containing over 285,000 processor cores and 10,000 graphics cards, Microsoft claimed at the time that it was one of the largest supercomputer clusters in the world.
 
 
Google's AmbiML team recently open-sourced KataOS, a provably secure operating system for embedded ML hardware. KataOS is based on the seL4 microkernel and is implemented in Rust.
