First there was the wheel, and you have to admit, the wheel was cool. After that, you had the boat and the hamburger, and technology was chugging right along with that whole evolution thing. Then there was the Web, and you had to wonder, after the wheel and the hamburger, how did things make such a sudden left turn and get so messed up so quickly? Displaying all the symptoms of having spent 30 years in the technology news business, Scott Fulton (often known as Scott M. Fulton, III, formerly known as D. F. Scott, sometimes known as that loud guy in the corner making the hand gestures) has taken it upon himself to move evolution back to a more sensible track. Stay in touch and see how far he gets.

The New Stack Founder and Publisher Alex Williams sat down at the IFX infrastructure conference with one of the companies looking to apply the speed, delivery, and, most importantly, the resilience built into software teams to the infrastructure side. After over a decade at Microsoft followed by more than a year at AWS, Luke Hoban, CTO of Pulumi, was ready to build something that helps developers work with the cloud. The way to bridge the chasm and bring the application development and infrastructure on either side closer together.

Google and other tech giants can be hard examples to follow. As organizations rush to scale their infrastructure on a mix of on-premises and cloud environments, especially on Kubernetes, they often struggle when trying to store and analyze data from stateless sources. A lot of the traditional storage databases have not worked at the scale needed, while the early cloud services, such as AWS and Google, developed their own storage environments internally.
“Kubernetes was very much focused initially on the stateless workloads and didn't do a very good job, to be perfectly honest, of providing any kind of support for storage, other than to the extent that you could connect to an existing public cloud provider,” Quinton Hoole, technical vice president of Huawei’s Futurewei Technologies, said. “I think that's evolved a lot over the last several years, as there are many different cloud native database [options]. People are starting to do serious stateful workloads in the cloud and in Kubernetes, in particular.”
In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast recorded live at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2019, Sugu Sougoumarane, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer at PlanetScale, as well as Hoole, discuss what tools and approaches organizations can take to store and manage data from Kubernetes and containers.
They also cover how storage and database-management tools are catching up to organizations’ often complex infrastructure needs. However, finding the right tool mix is not easy.

Pivotal’s Corey Innis’ job function, on paper at least, falls under the traditional category of software developer or engineer. Indeed, their “official” business title is staff software engineer at Pivotal. But instead, Innis says they have claimed another job title that is more reflective of what they actually do. Innis’ true title, they say, is “software craftsperson.”

APIs have certainly evolved beyond the first application programming interfaces (APIs) of the late 1960s to become the focal point of software development today.
But during the past three to four years, APIs have also evolved to become fully integrated with DevOps and front- and back-end development. Among the benefits APIs offer, well-developed APIs serve integral role allowing organizations to realize their business goals more efficiently and rapidly.And APIs continue to evolve, of course. Beerinder Rodey, senior product manager at TIBCO Software who works with the company’s Mashery API management product, discussed APIs’ recent developments with The New Stack’s Joab Jackson, managing editor, at the Cloud Foundry Summit North America in Philadelphia.
