TWiGCP — “Istio 1.1, better Deep Learning VM images, and a GCP plug-in for VMware vRealize”
If you came here from This Week in Google Cloud’s video series here are the links for the topics covered this week :
Here are the main GCP stories for this past week :
“Istio / Announcing Istio 1.1” (istio.io). This is a release focused on performance and scalability. The control plane memory consumption was a particular area of focus.
“NVIDIA’s RAPIDS joins our set of Deep Learning VM images for faster data science” (Google blog). Try these one-click setup images if you’re into deep learning and haven’t already. You’ll probably find out that they’re incredibly useful and a true time-saver.
“Now generally available: Plug-in for VMware vRealize Automation” (Google blog). More reasons for VMware customers to manage and consume Google Cloud resources.
