    Kubernetes video Course 2. static website deployment

    In this video we will deploy a docker image containing a static website to Kubernetes. This will be a very short demo just to give you a feel of how Kubernetes looks. In a later section we will go through the process of creating the docker image but for now, just enjoy the show. This course has been developed on a windows laptop, but I have installed the linux tools for windows since it gives a nice bash terminal to work with. However, if you chose to use Powershell that should work as well. Since a production Kubernetes deployment needs multiple nodes, we will use minikube to install a single…

    PaaS Explained

    Hi, I’m Tessa Rodes and I’m a designer on IBM Cloud and today we’re going to talk about Platform as a Service, and it’s hard to define Platform as a Service without talking about its neighbors, Infrastructure as a Service, or IaaS, and Software as a Service, or SaaS. So, let’s start with the foundation here with IaaS. IaaS is a set of compute, networking, and storage resources that have been virtualized by a vendor so that a user can access and configure them any way they want. In design we have a concept of talking about users called personas, and the persona for IaaS is a System Admin, or…

    SQL Server 2019 | Query faster from any database. (Microsoft Ignite)

    (logo sliding) (upbeat music) – Welcome to Microsoft Mechanics Live. (audience clapping) Hoo. Coming up, we take a closer look SQL Server 2019, now generally available. We’ll look at its expanded role as a data integration platform allowing you to bring in data from any source including on the Edge for analysis. In fact, we’ll show you how data location becomes irrelevant with a scenario that goes from the ground to the cloud, and introduce you to Azure SQL Database Edge. So, I’m please to be joined today by Buck Woody, an applied data scientist from the SQL engineering team. Welcome! Thanks for having me on the show. – It’s…

    Serverless Computing Tutorial: The Service (Part 2)

    The following is a Coderland presentation about our newest attraction, the Compile Driver. Hello! This is Doug Tidwell for Coderland. In this video we’ll take a look at a serverless function that manipulates image data captured by the webcam next to the Compile Driver. Given a picture of a happy guest, the function adds a message, a date stamp, and the Coderland logo. As you can see, the results are striking. To get started, clone or fork our repo. It’s available at the URL on your screen. [https://github.com/redhat-developer-demos/image-overlay.git] The code follows the common Function as a Service convention of using JSON to move data. Obviously we’re using binary data here,…

    Rancher 101: How To Make Your Rancher Server Immortal

    Hang on just a second… [media ejected] Done. This morning I was going through an old box of technology bits and I found an old flash drive. On that flash drive was a Bitcoin wallet from 2011. In that wallet was more than a thousand Bitcoin. A thousand Bitcoin! That’s like… [doing math] A LOT. I just transferred all of the data over to this flash drive. This is an ultra-secure flash drive with a small lithium ion battery that powers a microphone and a chip with my voice imprint on it. The drive is encrypted, and if I’m ever in a situation where someome might steal the drive, I…

    SQL Server on Linux, Kubernetes and Containers

    (upbeat music) Hello and welcome. My name is Sanjay Soni, here’s a Microlearning readiness video. So Bob, I’ve heard it’s very hard to understand, anything about containers or Kubernetes. That is such a myth. (both laugh) Actually containers are a lot more simple, than people think they are, but I wanna tell you one quick secret, you just said SQL 17 today, and SQL 19 tomorrow, I’ve been sneaking in some 19 stuff on you, when you didn’t realize that, because of the great story of SQL Linux and containers running about, so when I showed you containers today, I might even just run it on 19, just to prove…

    Serverless Computing Tutorial: Deploying to Knative (Part 3)

    The following is a Coderland presentation about our newest attraction, The Compile Driver. Hello! This is Doug Tidwell for Coderland. In this video, we’ll take a look at Knative itself. We’ll cover the three parts of Knative, we’ll talk about how to install it on Minishift, and we’ll deploy our image processing code as a serverless function. With all that done, we’ll talk about ways to invoke the code from the command line and from the React front end we looked at in the previous video. So let’s talk a little bit about Knative. It has three components. Knative Build, as you would expect, builds and packages your code, Knative…

    Introduction to Big Data Cluster on SQL Server 2019 | Virtualization, Kubernetes, and Containers

    (cheerful music) Hello and welcome, my name is Sanjay Soni. Here is a microlearning, readiness video Let me welcome Buck Woody to the studio. Hi, Buck. Hey, how you doing Sanjay? SANJAY: Great to have you with us. It’s good to be here, it’s good to be here. Awesome. So, what do you do at Microsoft? I am an applied data scientist. I work on the Azure Data Team, so we work with SQL Server and all the other data platforms as well. SANJAY: I see, I see. So I know there’s a lot of buzz going around for AI and big data, first of all, is big data real?…
