Voter registration data belonging to the entirety of Chicagorsquo;s electoral rollmdash;1.8 million recordsmdash;was found a week ago in an Amazon Web Services bucket.
Amazon Web Services has joined the “Anyone-but-AWSrdquo; club, pledging its support to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation to better align with the Kubernetes crowd.
Itrsquo;s not as if the cloud giant had much of a choice: As much as AWS wanted to ignore Kubernetes into obsolescence, the gravitational pull around Kubernetes is simply too strong.

Although most people view the CNCF announcement as a big endorsement for Kubernetes, AWS has been far cagier, offering precious little information on what it plans to do.The big question is just how far Amazon will go to support the open source project voted most likely to “take down AWS,” as WS02 CEO Sanjiva Weerawaranarlm; said. Here is what AWS must do: Build a Kubernetes service.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, created to promote and develop technologies like Kubernetes and core components of the container ecosystem spawned by Docker, welcomed Amazon Web Services into its fold this week.Amazon comes on board as a top-level ("platinum") member.

According to Amazon'snbsp;Adrian Cockcroft, now a member of the CNCF's governing board, containers are the big reason Amazon's getting involved -- at least, initially.Amazon already has a major investment in container tech.
Itsnbsp;ECSnbsp;service provides managed containers that run via machine images deployed on clusters of EC2 instances.
Its older Elastic Beanstalk service can deploy and manage Docker containers, although they're scaled and managed via Amazon's own internal stack, not the CNCF's Kubernetes.

And users can always manually deploy Docker Enterprise Edition, a container-centric Linux such as CoreOS, or a Kubernetes cluster on EC2.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

An analysis of Amazon Web Services storage containers reveals troubling trend of misconfigured S3 buckets that leak data.
The “cloudrdquo; in cloud computing originated from the habit of drawing the internet as a fluffy cloud in network diagrams. No wonder the most popular meaning of cloud computing refers to running workloads over the internet remotely in a commercial providerrsquo;s data center — the so-called “public cloudrdquo; model.

AWS (Amazon Web Services), Salesforcersquo;s CRM system, and Google Cloud Platform all exemplify this popular notion of cloud computing.But therersquo;s another, more precise meaning of cloud computing: the virtualization and central management of data center resources as software-defined pools.

This technical definition of cloud computing describes how public cloud service providers run their operations.

The key advantage is agility: the ability to apply abstracted compute, storage, and network resources to workloads as needed and tap into an abundance of pre-built services.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Some people call them “cloud hacks,” which is perhaps more accurate than “cloud tricks,” but the enterprises I work with donrsquo;t like the term “hack.”Whatever you prefer to call them, here are three shortcuts you can create to achieve specific end states.[ The cloud storage security gapmdash;and how to close it. | The InfoWorld Deep Dive: How to make document sharing really work in Office 365. ]Cloud trick No. 1: Customize your console Both Amazon Web Services and Microsoft have consoles that provide a master control view of resources on their clouds.

Herersquo;s a shocker: Wal-Mart is telling some technology companies that if they want Wal-Martrsquo;s business, they canrsquo;t use Amazon Web Services. (Wal-Mart says it simply doesnrsquo;t want customers storing Wal-Martrsquo;s sensitive info on AWS.) Thatrsquo;s a tall order for technology companies that may have invested millions in their tech running on AWS.However, if you see it from Wal-Martrsquo;s point of view, Amazon.comrsquo;s retail business is costing it billions a year in lost sales, so why not fight back by reducing Amazonrsquo;s AWS income from not just Wal-Mart but Wal-Mart's customers? After all, Amazon.com refuses to sell products from Apple and Google that compete with its own streaming devices and services. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
The latest Garter Magic Quadrant report for cloud infrastructure is out. Usually, the release of a Magic Quadrant means I have to correct its findings when talking to my clients. Enterprises take these as gospel, managing by Magic Quadrant—and as a result picking their technology, often the wrong technology, for the wrong reasons.This time, I have good news: This cloud Magic Quadrant is one you can trust.In that chart, every provider in the upper right (the execution-plus-vision leadership quadrant)—Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, and Google—is truly a provider that matters in the IaaS space.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Amazon Web Services clearly dominates the field. One of the first clouds, AWS is todayrsquo;s leading choice for good reason.
It offers so many options and services under its virtual roof that itrsquo;s nearly impossible to summarize the breadth.

There are dozens of machine types to choose from, dozens of ways to store data, and hundreds if not thousands of software packages you can use to build out your environment.

Thatrsquo;s the definition of the 800-pound gorilla in the cloud.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here(Insider Story)
