January General Meeting

Learnings from Running a Free Public Cloud for 10 Years

Speaker: Micheal Jones, Technical Operations Manager, Cybera

Over the past decade, Cybera has provided the Rapid Access Cloud as a free computing resource for Albertans. We'd like to think there has been a healthy mixture of good (and bad) decisions for our users over that time period. Please join us as we reminisce about the last decade of cloud evolution: self hosting, virtualization, containers, container orchestration, network virtualization, and the decline of Windows on cloud. What has stood the test of time, and what has not? How can we better identify a "fad" versus something that will more likely change the industry? Where should Cybera's Rapid Access Cloud go from here?

Micheal Jones is the Technical Operations Manager for Cybera, where he oversees the team that, among other things, hosts and enables the services and infrastructure that many organizations in the public sector have come to rely on. He came to Cybera from the world of film and television (where he tackled an interesting variety of IT issues). As well as brewing a fine cup of coffee for his colleagues, he was also instrumental in building Cybera's Rapid Access Cloud.
