Welcome Mission Critical Cloud

It's time for a change. After years of satisfaction with the CloudStack community, we have today reached a point that our vision of the future is essentially different from some of our partners. We as a company need to increase speed, improve release cycles and encourage change in the cloud orchestration software. After almost a year of deliberation, Schuberg Philis has reached the decision to fork CloudStack and start in a new direction: Mission Critical Cloud all the way. read more >

Wrap-up from the Amsterdam Software Circus

Last week I attended the Software Circus, a 2 day conference in Amsterdam about devops, microservices and Docker (http://softwarecircus.eu/).    It was clear that the buzzwords of the conference were docker and microservices. There were various vendors which presented tooling around Docker, a number of talks about Docker security. Micro services was mentioned in almost every presentation. But it is clear that micro services only make sense in a devops organisation.... read more >

Workshop: hands-on CloudStack at DevOpsDays Amsterdam

DevOpsDays Amsterdam CloudStack workshop
Recently I hosted a CloudStack hands-on workshop at DevOpsDays Amsterdam, together with my colleague Fred Neubauer. It was really awesome to see all attendees building their own CloudStack cloud.

GPG on Keybase

Schuberg Philis published our GPG key for abuse@schuberphilis.com on Keybase!


One major problem with GPG is publishing your key in a trustworthy and verifiable manner. Keybase.io is directory of people and GPG keys, much like a phonebook. This is similar to standard GPG key directory servers.

The difference with keybase however, is that an entity can publish their public key, but also cryptographically link or prove certain web identities to that key, such as DNS, Twitter, Github, Reddit, etc.

Another added benefit of keybase is, that users who want to encrypt confidential text to us, but do not have GPG installed, can use: https://keybase.io/encrypt#schubergphilis

Simply enter your message, hit 'Encrypt', and copy paste the encrypted output in an email to abuse@schuberphilis.com

Please be aware that we cannot encrypt replies unless we have your public key.

Happy Encrypting!

State of the Cloud

Lots of people ask us, "What is your philosophy on cloud?", "How is it running in production?", "Do you see a future for public cloud?". Those questions made me wonder.

In this short blog post I will dive into what we are busy with from a cloud perspective. Believe me, it is still a fun ride. read more >
