Long Time, No Blog

ya… kinda forgot about this blog, been a bit busy.

Figured since I’m starting a new adventure, player one is ready, I would start posting again.

OpenStack was fun, it was a challenge, and looking back from then to now, so much has changed for me.

I now support multiple production clouds running thousands of VM’s each on Ubuntu based OpenStack clouds deployed via MAAS and Ansible. The control planes are in LXC with ZFS backing and the API endpoints are using HAProxy with Anycast.

We run Rally, Spinnaker, Jenkins and packer and yet…. I’m bored.

Time for something new, time for Kubernetes.

I’m starting to play with K8s, learning the ins and outs, the joys of PKI (with Vault) and building containers within containers.

It’s hopefully the start of a new direction (SRE Dev), a new dungeon to explore (Calico), and learning code (Go) for fun and profit.

We’ll see what happens…
