I’m always interested in what’s happening at Canonical and with Ubuntu. Last week at Hadoop World I ran into a couple of folks from the company (coincidentally both named Mark but neither Mr. Shuttleworth). Mark Mims from the server team was willing to chat so I grabbed some time with him to learn about what he was doing at Hadoop World and what in the heck is this “charming” Juju?
Some of the ground Mark covers
- Making the next version of Ubuntu server better for Hadoop and big data
- (0:34) What are “charms” and what do they have to do with service orchestration
- (2:05) Charm school and learning to write Juju charms
- (2:54) Where does “Orchestra” fit in and how can it be used to spin up OpenStack
- (3:40) What’s next for Juju
But wait, there’s more!
Stay tuned for more interviews from last week’s Hadoop world. On tap are:
- Todd Papaioannou from Battery Ventures
- John Gray of Facebook
- Erik Swan of Splunk
- Nosh Petigara of 10gen/MongoDB.
- Ubuntu Juju Delivers Cloud Server Magic
- Ubuntu cloud update — OpenStack, Eucalyptus, Ensemble & Orchestra
- Hadoop cluster with Ubuntu server and Ensemble
Pau for now..
