ARCHITECHT Daily: Eric Brewer knows a lot about open source and cloud infrastructure
By ARCHITECHT • Issue #75 • View online
I’m going to take the opportunity up top today to direct readers to my writeup of the latest ARCHITECHT Show podcast, which features Google VP of infrastructure (and CAP theorem deviser) Eric Brewer. He provides a treasure trove of insights into areas such as open source, containers, the cloud computing market (ranging from competition to the economics of buying RAM) and the rationale for custom machine-learning processors. 
It’s a really good and wide-ranging discussion, and you’ll at least read the highlights linked to above, if not listen to the whole thing. If you’re interested in the thinking behind Google projects and products such as Kubernetes and Spanner, you’ll definitely want to listen.
Also, just a note as we approach the 20th ARCHITECHT Show episode this week. I’ve been fortunate to have a lot of great guests on the ARCHITECHT Show since starting it in January, many of whom are at least partially responsible for creating some of today’s hot technologies and companies. Among them:
Other guests includes founders and engineering leaders from companies such as: Google, Kaggle, GitHub, Instagram, DigitalOcean, DataDog, Honeycomb, Bonsai, Segment, Sapho, Metamarkets, Joyent, Backblaze. 
If you haven’t been listening, you can find highlights and listening options for all the ARCHITECHT Show podcasts here. If you have been listening, thanks (and feel free to tell your friends)!
