The Periodic Table of DevOps Tools (by Xebia Labs)

Some things are so good that they just need to be shared. This interactive table (original) was created by Cloudcast alum XebiaLabs (Eps#182). It's not only a great way to represent all the tools that are being created, but it's clickable to give you more in-depth information on each item.

Nicely done, XebiaLabs team!

The Cloudcast #206 - Experience Building Large-Scale Clouds

Description: Aaron and Brian talk to Jeff Dickey (@jeffdickey; Chief Innovation Officer @Redapt) and John Griffith (@jdg_8, Software Engineer @SolidFire) about the evolution of Redapt, best practices for building large-scale clouds, comparing OpenStack to Docker communities and how the ecosystem is changing from Vendor to SP to VAR.

Links from the show:

Topic 1 - Tell us about yourself and some background on Redapt.

Topic 1a - You both have OpenStack background. Why are you here at DockerCon?

Topic 2 - Aaron knows Redapt from his day job, but you really got on our radar the past few weeks with a bunch of announcements recently (eg CoreOS Fest + Tectonic). How did Redapt get involved with delivering solutions around these new Cloud Native frameworks?

Topic 3 - What you do is really a next-step in how companies are able to build or consume these new Cloud Native frameworks. How does Redapt go about pulling these systems together?

Topic 4 - We talked yesterday about your team. How do you keep the talent levels up to date on your team?

Topic 5 - Redapt is well-known in the cloud circles. What best practices can you take from your learnings and apply them to all these Enterprise and Mid-Market companies that want to do all the cool stuff we hear about here at DockerCon?

Free Ticket to OSCON - Tell us Your Open Source Journey

One of the coolest things about partnering with O'Reilly Media is that we get to give things to The Cloudcast community - including FREE passes to their excellent events.

For Velocity, we were able to give a free pass to Jordan Stone (@Cheddz) from Notion. He won our contest to tell us about his coolest project, and his Wireless Home Monitoring solution looks pretty cool to us.

For OSCON, we're giving away another free pass. This time, all you need to do is tell us about your journey to using open source software. Here's an example. Either send us a link via Twitter (to your blog or GitHub account), or drop us an email to We'll pick the winner in the next week.

Interested in more great stuff from O'Reilly OSCON?
