What percentage of Kubernetes workloads run on ? I seem to remember the number was 51% last year...?

More interesting number over time is what percentage of AWS runs on k8s. Think that trends to over 25% before too long....

Wait, tell me more. I’m not sure I completely understand what you’re saying. What percentage of AWS workloads overall are running K8s? Is that what you’re saying?

Right. Clouds started with relatively proprietary APIs, trending to open communities defining their core more over time. See also Kinesis —> Kafka.

Imagine an AWS where over 50% of their workloads run against an OSS community API. That’s the world that’s coming imho.

Might take years but network effects of open software will be larger than any single cloud even at AWS scale imho. Unix —> Linux

This isn't quite a "trending toward", as you suggest. There are benefits to different approaches, abstractions, and APIs. Many of our customers select simpler abstractions that scale, but many also select open source. I do not see a zero sum game here, and AWS invests in both.

I think you are being too trusting by far. People like PgSQL, bring them in with slightly proprietary PgSQL (RDS), up-sell to completely proprietary PgSQL (Aurora), lock in with some Aurora-only features ... profit! Aping an OSS API is the opposite of a good faith engagement.

Not really an AWS specific trend. Look at all-in on —imagine their install base pattern 5 years from now — Google Anthos OSS focus..etc. all compounds the network.

Remember when Java vs Microsoft was a battle? I do, and Microsoft was as powerful as any company ever then...now not even a hint of debate left after things like Netflix OSS patterns all Java only...

yes, but not certain what point you are making ‘Cloud’ was built on open source foundations from day one see also: Xen

"All-in" makes it sound like they're not investing in the core products of vSphere, vSAN, and NSX. But they're investing *even more*. They're using the AWS cloud to be able to deliver value to customers faster & continuously via a fully managed service.

just sharing a network effect I see developing -- not here to argue on the internet...customers are loving my white board session on this trend.
