Forbes just declared the incident response company PagerDuty to be “the new cloud unicorn” after the company announced an additional $90 million in funding. This new round gives PagerDuty a billion-dollar-plus valuation and puts it on par with other cloud tools like Slack and GitHub. So, we saw that this was creating quite a bit of energy at PagerDuty Summit in San Francisco this week.

Hello, welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we review the week’s hottest news in cloud native technologies/at-scale application development and look ahead to topics we expect will gain more attention in coming weeks.
This week, we recorded the podcast live at the Sensu Summit, which took place live in Portland. Joining us this week are Google Developer Advocate Kelsey Hightower and Sensu CEO Caleb Hailey, to discuss the challenges of microservices monitoring. Many traditional monitoring tools, such as Nagios, or even Amazon Web Services' CloudWatch, fail to capture the full picture of what is going on within a system, the panel agreed.

On this week's episode, we talk with technology evangelist Ravi Lachhman from AppDynamics, a sponsor of The New Stack, about the rise of software development kits for container orchestrators. Also joining us today are TNS Managing Editor Joab Jackson and Editor-in-Chief Alex Williams.
Lachhman wrote a post for us this week about packaging your applications for delivery in this new, complicated cloud-native world where clients and end users want choice as to where and how to install your product.

We discuss the 1.0 release of the Istio service mesh as well as a new private container registry project at the Cloud Native Computing Foundation called Harbor. We also speak with TNS editor-in-chief Alex Williams about the ServerlessConf, which was held this week in San Francisco.
The CNCF is a sponsor of The New Stack and it's been busy assembling open source projects to create a full cloud-native stack. Until recently that stack was missing an essential piece — namely, a container registry. This week VMware donated its open source container registry to fill out this part of the stack.

Microsoft announced on Monday that it was acquiring GitHub. And that’s all the Internet could talk about for a few days. TNS Managing Editor Joab Jackson wrote a piece for us summarizing the acquisition and some of that initial Internet reaction. And Scott Fulton examined a Plan B for developers who may be nervous about projects pulling out of GitHub and leaving a trail of broken dependencies.
And now that we’ve had some time to sit with it a bit we are starting to understand some of the other, longer term implications that this deal will have for developers.

This week on The New Stack Context podcast, we delve into the latest project from our resident hardware hacker, Dr. Torq, offer a summary of last week's ChefConf conference.
Last week, TNS Editor Alex Williams attended ChefConf in Chicago where he hosted a day of podcasting. We’ll hear his top takeaways from that event, including the latest on InSpec, Chef’s compliance automation tool. The company just announced an integration with their its version of Automate - the company’s automation platform. Williams says InSpec is really innovative and could be big for the Chef’s cloud native strategy going forward.
We also spoke with Dr. Torq, who has been writing for us regularly about his Raspberry Pi and machine learning project called Hedley, the robotic skull.

Hacker News and the Twitterverse were alight this week with discussion of Datadog engineer Jason Moiron’s blog post titled “Is Kubernetes Too Complicated?” This article hints at a Kubernetes backlash afoot, with ongoing concerns about its complexity. We speak with TNS correspondent Scott Fulton, who has a TNS article summarizing these issues.

This week on The New Stack Context we talk with CircleCI CEO Jim Rose about a three-part series of posts he just wrote for The New Stack about the metrics that the company has found are useful for measuring an organization’s DevOps performance. The series is full of lots of data and graphics to help explain some standard metrics like mainline branch stability, deploy time and deploy frequency. Rose spoke to us about the report CircleCI put together, how they came up with those metrics, and how they can be useful for DevOps teams.

Fulton had the chance to talk with CoreOS CEO Alex Polvi and Red Hat’s vice president for OpenShift Ashesh Badani, for a story on TNS. He got the lowdown on what “may” happen to products like Tectonic and Container Linux now that they’re part of Red Hat’s portfolio. “May” being the keyword here.
