Microsoft releases Open Service Broker for Azure OSBA version 10

first_imgMicrosoft released version 1.0 of Open Service Broker for Azure (OSBA) along with full support for Azure SQL, Azure Database for MySQL, and Azure Database for PostgreSQL. Microsoft announced the preview of Open Service Broker for Azure (OSBA) at the KubeCon 2017. OSBA is the simplest way to connect apps running on cloud-native environment (such as Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, and OpenShift) and rich suite of managed services available on Azure. The OSBA 1.0 ensures to connect mission-critical applications to Azure’s enterprise-grade backing services. It is also ideal to run on a containerized environment like Kubernetes. In a recent announcement of a strategic partnership between Microsoft and Red Hat to provide  OpenShift service on Azure, Microsoft demonstrated the use of OSBA using an OpenShift project template. OSBA will enable customers to deploy Azure services directly from the OpenShift console and connect them to their containerized applications running on OpenShift. It also plans to collaborate with Bitnami to bring OSBA into KubeApps, for customers to deploy solutions like WordPress built on Azure Database for MySQL and Artifactory on Azure Database for PostgreSQL. Microsoft plans 3 additional focus areas for OSBA and the Kubernetes service catalog: Plans to expand the set of Azure services available in OSBA by re-enabling services such as Azure Cosmos DB and Azure Redis. These services will progress to a stable state as Microsoft will learn how customers intend to use them. They plan to continue working with the Kubernetes community to align the capabilities of the service catalog with the behavior that customers expect. With this, the cluster operator will have the ability to choose which classes/plans are available to developers. Lastly, Microsoft has a vision for the Kubernetes service catalog and the Open Service Broker API. It will enable developers to describe general requirements for a service, such as “a MySQL database of version 5.7 or higher”.

Political pundit complains about fourlegged seatmate gets destroyed on Twitter

first_img Share NEW YORK — Twitter strikes again, effectively shaming a well-known political pundit for complaining about sitting next to a dog on a plane. But not just any dog, mind you. This one sported a bow tie and a goofy, lovable grin, effectively making him the world’s most adorable pooch.The pundit in question is Mark Halperin, a senior political analyst for NBC News who recently flew a Delta red-eye flight. Despite the many comforts that come with flying first class, Halperin took to Twitter to complain about his seatmate: a bernedoodle named Charlie who showed up for his flight dressed to the nines in a pink bow tie.Seriously, @delta??!? pic.twitter.com/j9pZlcDyAU— Mark Halperin (@MarkHalperin) April 22, 2017According to Slate, Charlie was flying in his own seat next to his human, Delta flight attendant Anthony Pisano, and was temporarily positioned between Pisano’s legs when Halperin tweeted a photo with the caption “Seriously, @delta??!?” But rather than finding support in Twitter-land, Halperin was eviscerated by people who quickly came to Charlie’s defense.More news:  A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to [email protected]_j_roth wrote, “Wait are you somehow bothered by this?” while @HollyAnderson hilariously tweeted, “hope the dog asked to be moved”. @mampdx called out Halperin personally, saying that she “can’t believe they inconvenienced that dapper dog by allowing you on the plane”.After getting a beating on Twitter, Halperin appeared to backtrack on his comment, tweeting: “We were abt to take off on redeye. Dog was cute. I was sharing pix & expressing surprise owner/dog hadn’t been put 2gether.”According to Pisano, the seats were arranged A-BC-D, with Charlie sitting in 6A, Pisano in 6B and Halperin in 6C. He said Halperin called a flight attendant over because he refused to sit next to a dog. The attendant then asked Pisano if Halperin and Charlie could switch seats so that Halperin could sit by himself. He agreed, but also noted that Halperin was rude and refused to look at him as they switched.Whether Halperin really was just surprised by the separation of man and his best friend, there’s one thing we can all agree on: Charlie just won the Internet. We’re betting he’ll have his own Twitter account in the days to come. Travelweek Group Tags: Delta Air Lines, LOL Posted bylast_img read more
