  2. Adrian Cockcroft on Microservices, Terraservices and Serverless Computing

    Summary: For our inaugural podcast QCon chair Wesley Reisz talks to Adrian Cockcroft, who works for Battery Ventures where he advises the firm and its portfolio companies about technology issues and also assists with deal sourcing and due diligence. Why listen to this podcast • Over the last year a large number of frameworks and libraries for building microservices have emerged and we’re seeing a lot of rapid change. • The stack you choose will often be based on the main language you use, so for example Netflix’s stack is language agnostic but the tooling is very Java-centric. • Architectural choices can have a profound impact on success, so some-thing as simple as an overly long timeout with retries can cause your system to suffer from a congestion collapse problem. Have a large timeout at the edge, and progressively smaller and smaller timeouts as you get deeper into the system. • Start with a monolith and move to a distributed architecture when you need to because of team size or to get better separation of concerns. • Other disruptive trends include “serverless architecture” like AWS Lambda, and open source itself which is perhaps the true definition of disruptive. More on this • You can access our in-depth coverage on microservices http://bit.ly/1SRnFz3. • You can als…

  3. a16z Podcast: All About Microservices

    "Incremental change may be good theory, but in practice you have to have a big enough stick to hit everybody with to make everything move at once". So shares Adrian Cockcroft, who helped lead Netflix’s migration from datacenter to the cloud — and from monolithic to microservices architecture — when their streaming business (the "stick"!) was exploding.

    So how did they — and how can other companies — make such big, bet-the-company kind of moves, without getting mired in fanatical internal debates? Does organizational structure need to change, especially if moving from a more product-, than project-based, approach? What happens to security? And finally, what happens to the role of CIOs; what can/should they do?

    Most interestingly: How will the entire industry be affected as companies not only adopt, but essentially offer, microservices or narrow cloud APIs? How do the trends of microservices, containers, devops, cloud, as-a-service/ on-demand, serverless — all moves towards more and more ephemerality — change the future of computing and even work? Cockcroft (who is now a technology fellow at Battery Ventures) joins this episode of the a16z Podcast, in conversation with Frank Chen and Martin Casado (and Sonal Chokshi) to discuss these shifts and more.

  9. a16z Podcast: So Where Are We on the ‘S-curve’ for PC Devices?

    There have been a number of new device announcements this past month — from Google’s new Pixel phone (the first time they made their own phone on the hardware side as well) to more recently, Apple’s announcements around a new Macbook Pro and innovations in touch (including a Touchbar that replaces function keys and bringing TouchID to Macs); and then Microsoft, which among other things announced a new Surface Studio — an all-in-one touchscreen desktop PC. How do these change the future of work?

    Turns out, even seemingly small interface improvements could have significant consequences for user behavior. Just look at touch. More broadly, though, what happens when a software maker becomes a hardware maker? Or when we’re in the middle of an architecture shift, as we are right now with x86 to ARM processors in mobile (and beyond)?

    It’s all about where you’re at on the "S-curve" of innovation (a concept first coined by Gabriel Tarde and expanded on Everett Rogers in his theory of innovation diffusion). And sometimes, the best is the last… But how can we tell where something is on that curve? The right comparisons matter here, and a16z’s Benedict Evans and board partner Steven Sinofsky try to make them in this episode of the podcast!

  10. Camille Fournier on The Chubby lock service for loosely-coupled distributed systems

    Meetup: http://www.meetup.com/papers-we-love/events/203968372/ Paper: http://static.googleusercontent.com/media/research.google.com/en/us/archive/chubby-osdi06.pdf Slides: https://speakerdeck.com/paperswelove/camille-fournier-on-the-chubby-lock-service-for-loosely-coupled-distributed-systems Audio: http://www.mixcloud.com/paperswelove/camille-fournier-on-the-chubby-lock-service-for-loosely-coupled-distributed-systems/ ——————————————————————————————————————————————- Sponsored by Beatport ——————————————————————————————————————————————-

    Description ———————- Distributed consensus is often discussed in terms of algorithms: Paxos, ZAB, RAFT, etc. But while the algorithms may be more or less mind-bending, for me the more interesting aspect of distributed consensus is creating systems that support it for the general use case. This paper, on Google’s Chubby lock service, is the story of happens when a system stops being a polite theory, and starts getting real-world use.

    To anyone who has worked in depth as a distributed systems engineer, Chubby is a beautiful paper. It is not a paper about algorithms and their limits, or a toy fringe system created by grad students to test a hypothesis. It is a paper tha…
