Managing Multiple Python Versions and Packages

After spending a solid afternoon researching and working on deploying multiple Python versions and packages, I realized how much confusion and lack of authoritative posts exist on this subject. There are lots of opinions and suggestions out there which may not be correct at all or more often the case, half correct. It’s a pretty tricky subject with a myriad of potential pitfalls. In this short post, I hope to provide some guidance from my own learnings. Continue reading

The Evolution of Blockchain from Crypto to DApps

I remember buying my first bitcoin back when it was still hovering around ~$100. It’s an understatement to say things have sure changed – and, not just in terms of what Bitcoin is now worth (market cap just under $1 trillion), but also with the ecosystem, exchanges, trading/investment vehicles, and flood of other blockchains and respective cryptocurrencies that followed. From the paper that started it all came an avalanche of ideas and innovation embracing fundamental paradigm shifts in how transactions, currency, digital assets, and even applications can be viewed and utilized in a different way. Blockchains

Although I wish I could go back in time and follow-through with plans to sell all my assets and go all-in with Bitcoin, I am still excited for the future and what’s to come from what started with the first implementation of blockchain with Bitcoin to what has now morphed into something larger. In this short post, I talk about the initial use of blockchain with Bitcoin and how it has evolved beyond its initial use for digital money or cryptocurrencies into a platform for decentralized apps (DApps).

Web3, DApps, and Cloudflare IPFS and Ethereum Gateways

One of the interesting areas I’ve been reading-up and working on past few months has been Web3. Web3 can be viewed as a new iteration of the Web incorporating technologies that exhibit characteristics of decentralization, trustlessness, immutability, inherent verification, while also providing transparency. Additionally, Web3 moves away from the aspect of a single entity controlling user data such as we’ve see in the current Web 2.0 model. That’s a mouthful, and I’ll briefly explain some more below and also follow-up with an additional blog post going into more details when time is more on my side :-). Continue reading

Nutanix Clusters on AWS – Hibernate Hosts to Lower Cloud Spend

Nutanix Beam - Nutanix Clusters on AWS Savings When Cluster is HibernatedI’ve written a few prior posts on Nutanix Clusters on AWS: Nutanix Clusters on AWS – Hybrid Cloud and Multicloud Platform, Nutanix Clusters on AWS – Getting Started and on Nutanix Beam: Optimize Cost Across Public and Private Clouds with Nutanix Beam, Nutanix Beam – Chargeback and Tracking Spend Across Clouds. In this post, I marry the two and use Nutanix Beam to demonstrate how the Hibernate/Resume functionality in Nutanix Clusters can be used by customers to lower their cloud spend when using Nutanix Clusters in AWS. Note, Hibernate/Resume functionality is still in Early Access as per shown in screen shots further below. Continue reading

Nutanix Beam – Chargeback and Tracking Spend Across Clouds

Nutanix Beam - Track Spend Across Multicloud Environments
My prior post on Nutanix Beam, Optimize Cost Across Public and Private Clouds with Nutanix Beam, provided a brief intro and described some of the basic functionality of Beam and how it can be used to define a cost control strategy for both multicloud and hybrid cloud scenarios. In this post, I build on top of the prior post and show an example of how customers can leverage capabilities in Beam to track cloud spend across teams, business units, and even across multiple clouds.

Nutanix Clusters on AWS – Getting Started

Nutanix Clusters on AWS
Nutanix Clusters on AWS is available globally across 20 geographic regions and 61 availability zones. See the Nutanix Clusters website for the most up-to-date information. In my prior post, I discussed the availability of Nutanix Clusters on AWS, use cases, and unique advantages. In this post, I walk through how you can easily get started deploying Nutanix Clusters in AWS and leverage for hybrid cloud and central management. For additional information, check out the Nutanix Clusters on AWS Getting Started documentation here. For fun, I also deployed Nutanix Clusters on AWS in Augmented Reality using my Microsoft Hololens 2 augmented reality headset – if interested, you can see the demo here. Continue reading
