A while back, as part of my new role, I began looking for opportunities to:
- Challenge the status quo, and,
- Connect people together that want to solve big problems.
(Luckily, the two are closely related.)
Recently, I was introduced to some fine folks at SiteOx in Franklin, TN (that's just outside of Memphis) that happen to have some really fast POWER8 systems that provide infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS).
I mentioned that previously unknown tidbit to some of my colleagues (who are are awesome Juju Charmers) to see if/how the service could be used to speed Juju Charm development.
As it turns out, it can! In case you missed it, Matt Bruzek of Juju Charmer fame, figured it all out and then wrote a concise guide to do just that. Check it out here, and then...
Thanks Matt, and thanks SiteOx.
