All is forgiven Google Cloud who needs pokemon go anyway ?

Thanks #AWS @amazon for locking us out of our brand new domain and email system for a whole week because we didn’t reply to your email in 48 hours!

So much for being a smooth switch to route53, Your admin forms and procedures suck ! We should have stayed with @godaddy

We’re now looking to go hybrid on the cloud now, maybe you should do too?Forget terraform… where’s that link again…oh yeah

Coming soon our honest cloud comparison between #Azure #AWS and #GCP

Not all cloud platform consoles are hard to use, some are actually noticeably better than others. Say goodbye to scroll bars ( on Azure) say goodbye to Java applets that don’t work ( AWS)

The cloud doesn’t need to be complicated, hard to use or slow to get used to nor 100%rocket fast.

But then again I like RDS , EFS and ELB, I like Eleastic services. Can google cloud actually deliver? Can they stop me smashing my latop screen every time #Azure makes me scroll up or down ?

Well there’s one way to find out. Good ol’ suck it and see

Probably best not to listen to media hype about #containers #Kubernetes or #openstack. If you cant do godaddys DNS job, why bother ?

I don’t like Pokemon go anyway so am i fussed about google supporting it ? Are you up for a change to your #cloud provider?

Do I care what cloud provider or technology @ITV or @Netflix or @Bloomberg are meant to be using at the moment ? or Deutche bank for that matter? Maybe you don’t have a lot of IT staff to help you. Maybe you just want whats best for your business without spending £1000 a day for a consultancy ? Do you need some impartial advice ?  Do you , Do you REALLY!?

If so contact me via linked in

I’ve heard rumors that some people now use iCloud or Google drive or even Dropbox to save pictures or files into.

But if you have Amazon Prime, are you aware you get “unlimited” photo storage for FREE?

It’s not just a deal till this Easter either!

Why is Postgres database so popular ?

Neither MySQL nor Oracle are going to lose their places as the Top 2 most popular database technologies in the world anytime soon, to PostgreSQL or anything else. The trends, however, favor PostgreSQL. In part, this is because oldsters appreciate its steady reliability. Hipsters, however, are also glomming onto the virtue of boredom
