Cloud lock-in is a thing
I like what I'm reading, but I don't think this goes far enough for me as a hobbyist trying to build home compute environments similar to the enterprise ones where I work, but without using cloud services, licensed products, or being locked-in to a vendor. Specifically, I was just looking at rolling out some traffic monitoring services inside Docker containers, but that requires me to use their cloud service to "host my deployables" or get my own Git server, which requires a license (or so it seems) to do the Enterprise Github server, otherwise I have to... wait for it... use their cloud services, or a similar provider. This has led me back to doing all my own code and tool hosting internally on an svn repo. Which seems to be the best alternative to Github, when you don't want to do your version control in a cloud. I guess I need to keep looking, but you'd think you can build out some cool enterprisey stuff at home, and then you find out your OS repo does not support the latest Python, or they have an old version of salt-stack, and what about Puppet non-enterprise? Oh, the mind boggles at what could be an easy build at home, into a work-like trek through the wilds of open source, but with that cloud catch 22.
