I wrote a few days ago about my first failed attempt to do this. After some perseverance, and with some lessons learned along the way I’m pleased to say that I now have it working. Given that VXLAN (at least in the Linux kernel implementation) needs multicast I’m still not sure that this is a good idea, as it won’t work in (almost every one of the) public clouds. The main thing that stopped me on my first try was repeated kernel panics when connecting a couple of VMs together over VXLAN.
JeffConf have posted the video from my talk there on LessOps (or should that be ‘LessOps), which is how I see operations working out in a world of ‘serverless’ cloud service:VIDEOThe full playlist is here, and I’ve also published the slides:Like this:Like Loading...RelatedFiled under: cloud | Leave a Comment Tags: DevOps, LessOps, NoOps, serverless
In a note to my last post ‘Safety first‘ I promised more on this topic, so here goes…As software learns from manufacturing by adopting the practices we’ve called DevOps we’ve got better at catching mistakes earlier and more often in our ‘production lines’ to reduce their cost; but what if the whole point of software engineering is to make mistakes? What if mistake is the unit of production? This begs the question of what is a ‘unit of a good’ with software?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
