[Links of the Day] 03/12/2019 : Update Framework, Good Runbook, 50 years of computer architecture

  • Update Framework : this looks highly promising, the Linux Foundation is teaming up with CNCF to deliver a secure way to maintain and update system even in the face of adversity. Knowing that there is an update to apply is already half the battle and this framework seems to go a long way to help you with this and tackle the next half efficiently.
  • Good Runbook : what is a good runbook, how to structure it and how to apply it. Runbooks are the basics of the standard operations procedure in case of failure. Often overlooked as an afterthought, the runbooks in your company should be carefully designed to be easily understandable and applicable. As more often than not, the person who wrote the runbook won't be the one executing it on the next failure. 
  • 50 Years of Computer Architecture : a nice historic recap of the evolution of the processor architecture and where we are going. The mainframe CPU history is just worth a read alone. [slides]
