Anyone know of any good resources or knowledge bases on cloud technology?

This has been a Krallum request

Repatriation seems to be a buzzword cropping up.

People tired of paying for shit they don't actually own? I think enterprises jumped to the cloud when it was the in thing and are finding out that it is just as expensive, maybe even more so in some situations, than on-prem computing.

Thoughts?

I work primarily on a project deployed to Google Cloud via Kubernetes. Almost all the Kubernetes projects that have followed get deployed to our "on-prem" data centers now instead.

I honestly never gave a shit about it in the first place. Went to India a few years ago to get a crash course on the project that focused heavily on managing the apps with Kubernetes but couldn't care less about the Kubernetes bits. The VP who started the project singled me out and asked whether I was getting everything I needed, and I told him straight up that the way I saw it, I wasn't going to be the one managing deployments for the most part anyway, because I am an application developer. The deployment of the application to whatever environment doesn't concern me too much.

I could tell he wasn't happy about it, but he said I had an "interesting perspective." Cut to a few years later, I'm the technical project lead for the project now. I still don't give the first shit about the details of its deployment. I begrudgingly run the deployments with an internal tool that abstracts all the Kubernetes stuff away anyhow, and it's all coordinated with Helm behind the scenes. Huge fucking yawn in my opinion.

As an app developer I could see your lack of concern. It shouldn't be - that's not what you get paid to care about.

But as an infrastructure architect, I wish these companies would make up their damned minds.

on-prem is only cheaper if your app doesn't matter or you're at a scale greater than that of some of the services CSPs offer themselves. when you factor the entire TCO, most company supply chains arent even within an order of magnitude as efficient as those of aws, google, or ms. so even with 50-80% margin you typically see from CSPs you're well ahead of rolling your own

Take a simple python or node.js app and deploy it on Lambda or Cloud Functions. Learn CDK or Pulumi (if not AWS).
