John Foley has a newsletter on Cloud databases. He published research on the top 20 vendors and products.
GCP has launched the next version of cloud functions. It is significantly better than other FaaS and its own previous generation. You can spin up large instances to run functions and also for long processing time, reduced cold start latency, and much more.
DevOps Roadmap 2022 - I shared this article a week ago. It is based on my personal experience and advice. Read it if you are from a DevOps or Cloud Native background.
Tools to Explore

Steampipe is an open-source project which allows querying all popular cloud resources such as AWS, GCP, Azure, GitHub, Kubernetes, and many more via its plugin-based approach. Each cloud is treated like a schema and its resources are tables. So you can use it for multi-joins of data from various sources. It is used in auditing, checking compliance and for any automation needs, you may have around these resources.
Regula uses Open Policy Agent to check compliance against Terraform and Kubernetes manifests and strengthen the security of the workload. It works for GCP, Azure, AWS, and Kubernetes. It can be integrated into the CI pipeline or as a pre-commit hook in your local git.
Prometheus’ queries are sometimes hard to write. Promlens will make your life easier if you have to write a lot of queries in Grafana / Prometheus.
