Over the last couple weeks I've been exploring the challenges companies encounter in managing public cloud infrastructure. I've met with about a dozen technology companies to date, talking primarily to operations and engineering professionals. I've spoken to both large and small users (largest was running 4K instances, smallest 20), across multiple different cloud providers. My goal has been to identify the areas in which we as a community are struggling the most with systems management.
For those of you who have or will be taking the time to meet with me, your insights are much appreciated. For those of you who want to participate but are not in my direct network, please drop me an email and/or take this survey.
I will return the favor by summarizing the trends I've heard in an upcoming blog post.
Thanks and look forward to talking to you.
