August has been a hazy month under the wave here at Tidal Migrations and in the cloud community at large; check it out!
Recommended Migration Order:
- Reports might just be the bane of your existence, but clients and stakeholders need those deliverables. With the one-click application assessment generator you’ll be breathing a little easier, but with the new Recommended Migration Order feature, you’ll be able to target that low-hanging fruit just as easily.
- Keep your eyes and ears open for the next Migration Enablement Workshop this September in Toronto. If you’re interested in becoming a cloud migration ninja, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and include WORKSHOP in your subject line - you can see what we did at the May workshop.
- If you’re looking to access our past webinars, they’re also available on demand after you register.
- Hundreds of exposed Amazon cloud backups found leaking sensitive data - Cloud users were given a few weeks to double-check that they weren’t exposing any public EBS snapshots this month, before one good samaritan released one hell of a shepherd’s crook.
- A Seasonal Report on Developer Trends in the Cloud: Remote Work Edition - Developer life in the cloud seems pretty enviable, but don’t tear up your brick-and-mortar lease just yet: working from home has its drawbacks.
- Terraform vs. CloudFormation on AWS - August appears to be a month of fighting in the cloud, with the Serverless vs Containers rap battle, as well as the Terraform vs CloudFormation smackdown. Place your bets…
- Introducing Certificate Transparency Monitoring - Get alerted if someone creates an SSL certificate for your domain, and thwart phishing attacks in their tracks.
- Introducing the BigQuery Terraform module - Google tells us our Cloud Foundation Toolkits aren’t worth a hoot without BigQuery, but the good news is it’s made its debut and is taking automation by storm.
- Python the latest language to slither into Microsoft’s serverless Azure Functions service - Another (possibly epic) rap battle we’d watch would feature Microsoft’s Azure and AWS, the former having right-hooked the latter with their recent adoption of Python, though adoption of the language is not quite as easy breezy as it might seem.
