"Ryan Dahl, the creator of Node.js, said the following while he was talking about Node's concurrency model:[...] I think Node is not the best system to build a massive server web. I would use Go for that. And honestly, that’s the reason why I left Node. It was the realization that: oh, actually, this is not the best server-side system ever." (in 2017)

unveiled Tesla’s computer chip, designed and built entirely in-house, that the company is using to run its supercomputer, Dojo. Much of Tesla’s AI architecture is dependent on Dojo, the neural network training computer that Musk says will be able to process vast amounts of camera imaging data four times faster than other computing systems. The idea is that the Dojo-trained AI software will be pushed out to Tesla customers via over-the-air updates.
“This is not intended to be just limited to Tesla cars,” said Musk. “Those of you who’ve seen the full self-driving beta can appreciate the rate at which the Tesla neural net is learning to drive. And this is a particular application of AI, but I think there’s more applications down the road that will make sense.”
“We basically want to encourage anyone who is interested in solving real-world AI problems at either the hardware or the software level to join Tesla, or consider joining Tesla,” said Musk.

"In a recent article in the Ably Engineering series, Ably's engineer Maik Zumstrull explained why real-time messaging platform Ably does not use Kubernetes.
Kubernetes is, without doubt, a very hot topic and is attracting a lot of interest from developers and companies. It aims to provide a platform to automate deployment, scaling, and operations of containers across clusters of hosts. Kubernetes has become one of the preferred solutions to manage container-based and microservice-oriented platforms.
Ably platform runs on AWS and, although all of their software is deployed in containers, it does not rely on Kubernetes or other runtime layers for their orchestration."

"Businesses and governments are signing up for a mix of providers, cherry-picking features and playing the vendors off against each other to keep costs down, company executives and cloud analysts say. It is opening up business opportunities for runners-up like Alphabet Inc.’s GOOG Google, Oracle Corp. ORCL and International Business Machines Corp., though Amazon and Microsoft remain dominant and still account for the lion’s share of cloud revenue.
