Using ChatGPT to assist multi-cloud scenarios

I have generated Terraform codes for the same Ubuntu VM with OpenAI’s Chat GPT-4 and compared the VM prices per region in a fancy table. HCL code results are quite accurate, however, I would not trust price comparison due to outdated information. You can get adjustable results in minutes saving lots of human research time.

Oracle Database service for Azure – linking subscriptions

As part of my multi-cloud research, I wanted to test Oracle Database Service for Azure. In this article, you will see how to sign up for the new service and how to link Oracle and Azure accounts. I used Frankfurt datacenters, Azure MSDN, and OCI paid account (Free Tier does not work) using my private Azure Active Directory.

Multi-Cloud

Why multi-cloud is the way to go? VMware and Oracle perspective.

While cloud migration is still a popular topic during customer discussions, I have noticed that more and more customers are considering an exit plan from one cloud (vendor lock-in) to another cloud meaning there is an increase in multi-cloud migration demand. VMware, Oracle, and SAP are the major workloads in on-premises data centers today. Based on my research both VMware and Oracle are very vocal about the importance of having a multi-cloud strategy.

AWS

AWS Site-to-Site VPN using MikroTik RouterOS

There are two ways of approaching this challenge. (#1) running MikroTik virtual appliance (CHR) in AWS (#2) using Virtual Private Gateway, a “cloud-native” networking solution provided by AWS. Each solution has its own benefits.

Hands-on Lab blog

I am running an advanced multi-cloud hands-on lab environment and sharing my experiences on cutting-edge technology to save time for everyone interested.

My primary instest is migration and modernization of VMs, containers and database workloads.

Interview videos

I am lucky to have great friends at both Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, Oracle Cloud and VMware. We agreed to record quick 2-3 minute videos seeking together the future of IT workloads.
