In this Datanauts episode, we return to the topic of Serverless Architecture to dig deeper and delve into what we got right, wrong, or sort of in between. Our guest is the infamous Brian Gracely.
Designing for business critical applications takes some special consideration. On today’s Datanauts, we define what a business critical application is, and then sort out how, exactly, to deal with them from an infrastructure perspective. Insert your earbuds to hear Michael Webster from Nutanix chat through this discussion with co-hosts Chris Wahl and Ethan Banks.

Today’s Datanauts episode talks about why some organizations are moving away from the public cloud, including a lack of control over performance, and declining cost and complexity of running your own infrastructure.
The Datanauts talk with blogger, author, and tech guru Scott Lowe about open source software, the future of the data center, and what the notion of the full stack engineer means for the technology profession.
The idea of serverless anything makes infrastructure people giggle. Because serverless is made of servers. The Datanauts explore what serverless really means, and examine the implications for infrastructure engineers
The Datanauts talk about why and how operations folks can take advantage of Git and GitHub, share tips, and explore why they aren’t just for developers.
Today’s Datanauts show is all about learning new technologies. Ethan and Chris have each spent time digging into a technology that’s unfamiliar to them: building a DNS service using CoreOS for Ethan, and using AppVeyor to built a test environment for PowerShell scripts for Chris.
The Datanauts Silo Series explores how to determine how many resources to apply to a virtualized workload. We discuss how to properly size and configure tricky tier 1 applications and monster VMs.
An untested failover plan is a failover that won’t work when you need it. Therefore, test! The Datanauts talk about why, how, and what to do to get the most from a failover exercise.
Today’s Datanauts episode gets into the sticky details of integrating public cloud services, particularly AWS & Azure, with a production environment.
Yes, security people can be annoying and their requirements a pain, but security is also essential. Here’s how to build better, less adversarial relationships and rethink how you integrate security in the data center.
Skyport Systems is sponsoring the Datanauts podcast to introduce its hardened virtualization platform to the infrastructure engineering audience.
On today’s Datanauts episode we’re joined by Jason Edelman to dig into why the network has traditionally been so hard to automate, what tools are available, and how to get started.
On today’s episode of Datanauts we learn about Snap, an open source telemetry framework to make collecting, processing, and publishing data center metrics modular, dynamic, and open. Snap was originally developed by Intel.
The Datanauts delve into CoreOS, a lightweight, Unix-like operating system that aims to make deploying containers as simple as ordering Earl Grey tea on your food replicator.
Today on Datanauts, Tony Bourke joins us to share his experiences rolling his own distribution of OpenStack. We dig into the hows, whys, and the challenges.
The Datanauts discuss the career path of a technical professional to talk about how and when to update skills. They explore a few of the tools and technologies worth getting comfortable with.
The Datanauts explore the network and application issues that make moving VMs from one data center to another dangerous, and share ways to enable it safely.
Join the Datanauts for a ride to the land of GIFEE, or Google Infrastructure for Everyone Else. GIFEE is a combination of tools and processes to launch code and applications quickly and at scale. But is it relevant to you? Probably it is!
What does it mean for an application to be “cloud-native”? The Datanauts and guest Tony Bourke dive into the fundamentals of applications designed to live in the cloud.
On today’s Datanauts episode we talk about the VCDX, the highest certification available from VMware. Chris Wahl, who has two, shares his experiences on preparation and taking the exam.
The Datanauts talk pros and cons of adopting IaaS with guest Steve Winwood, a technical architect with direct experience in IaaS usage. We talk about when IaaS makes sense vs. building your own infrastructure, considerations for choosing a provider, how cloud app deployment is different, how to understand and manage costs, and more.
The Datanauts and guest Warren Frame, an infrastructure engineer, nerd out about scripting, continuous integration, and Windows PowerShell as the heart of a full-stack engineering journey.
In today’s episode of Datanauts, we talk about how the modern social nerd can squeeze every last kilobyte of value from the buffet of conferences, meetups, and events available to tech professionals seeking enlightenment and peer interaction.
