Spring has sprung, which means we’ve finally escaped one of the most extreme winters in recent memory. Weather.com says we should prepare for more large-scale climate events that will cripple power grids, resulting in prolonged power outages. Part of being prepared means having a back-up power supply, and companies like Goal Zero are here to help. Goal Zero’s smallest kit, The Guide, can power or charge your smartphone or tablet, and can be re-charged via USB or by plugging it into a solar panel, like the Nomad 7. GoalZero’s Escape 150 can power just about anything with a standard A/C power cord, like your laptop or camera, and can be re-charged through A/C or through the Escape 30 Solar Panel Briefcase. For prolonged blackouts, something like Goal Zero’s Extreme 350i Power Kit do the trick. I recently used it to power my MacBook Air and a satellite phone, as well as a small refrigerator. I can tell you from personal experience: when you need a solar-chargeable power supply, you’ll be really happy you have one.

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...
