In this weeks episode we catch up with Whit Morriss of fame and infamy from the Juju new workloads team, who has moved to Ops at Simple
And Wayne Witzel - Formerly of the Juju Core Team, now a core developer at Ansible
We’ll cover topics ranging from Language Evolution, Monitoring, and Consultancy to humanops, and perspectives from Open Source consumerism. Lots to ingest in the final episode of the 2015 pre-recordings.
In this weeks episode, we catch up with the Juju Benchmarking team to discuss their new product launch - titled very appropriately: “Benchmarking”. This takes a fresh approach to performing repeatable, scalable, automated Benchmarking of your workload in the cloud, on prem, and in a variety of other scenarios.
Marco Ceppi as the project lead gives us the deep dive into why benchmarking is such a focus for the Juju team. Adam Israel provides insights into how to compose benchmarks for Juju Charms and what considerations were in mind when creating the benchmark actions. Tim Vansteenburgh covers the Benchmark GUI and how it aids in the human interfacing of Benchmarking.

In the spirit of getting a feel for System Zoo on air, it’s fitting that the first episode is catching up with Jesse Dearing. We’ll talk through what it’s like being a Site Reliability engineer of New Relic - an application performance management company. And how the culture of friendly engineering plays in his every day professional life.
