Dgraph launches Slash GraphQL, a GraphQL-native database Backend-as-a-Service

Dgraph Labs, the startup behind the popular eponymous graph database, today announced the launch of its Slash GraphQL service. Slash GraphQL is a fully managed GraphQL backend service that is, of course, powered by Dgraph. As Manish Jain, Dgraph’s CEO and founder (and one of the engineers behind Google’s massive graph database infrastructure), told me, the team considered simply launching a basic managed version of Dgraph. But the team decided to go well beyond this instead. Back in 2019, the...

The $10B JEDI contract is locked, loaded and still completely stuck

The other day I took a moment to count the number of stories we’ve done on TechCrunch on the DoD’s $10 billion, decade-long, winner-take-all, JEDI cloud contract. This marks the 30th time we’ve written about this deal over the last two years, and it comes after a busy week last week in JEDI cloud contract news. That we’re still writing about this is fairly odd if you consider the winner was announced last October when the DoD chose Microsoft, but there is no end in sight to the on-going drama th...

Tracking Original URL Through Authentication

If you read my other post about refreshing AWS tokens, then you probably have a use case for keeping track of the original requested resource while the user goes through authentication so you can route the user to that resource once they’re authenticated. A simple idea of going directly to the link can get a little confusing once you add authentication in the mix. Even more confusing when the authentication flow reloads your web app and you can no longer rely on in-memory state. In this post, I ...

Diffblue launches a free community edition of its automated Java unit testing tool

Diffblue, a spin-out from Oxford University, uses machine learning to help developers automatically create unit tests for their Java code. Since few developers enjoy writing unit tests to ensure that their code works as expected, increased automation doesn’t just help developers focus on writing the code that actually makes a difference but also lead to code with fewer bugs. Current Diffblue customers include the likes of Goldman Sachs and AWS. So far, Diffblue only offered its service through a...

Google Cloud Anthos update brings support for on-prem, bare metal

Open Source Sustainability is Really a People Problem

Matt Asay, a former COO of Canonical now working at AWS, argues that the question of open source sustainability "is really a people problem." But to make the case, he cites comments by Tobie Langel, formerly W3C's testing lead (and a former member of Facebook's Open Source and Web Standards Team) who's now founded an open-source strategies consulting firm whose clients include Mozilla, Intell, Google, and Microsoft. Much of the "open source sustainability" discussion has focused on the one thi...

Just what would an enterprise company like Microsoft or Oracle do with TikTok?

By now you’ve probably heard that under pressure from the current administration, TikTok owner ByteDance is putting the viral video service up for sale, and surprisingly a couple of big name enterprise companies are interested. These organizations are better known for the kind of tech that would bore the average TikTok user to tears. Yet, stories have persisted that Microsoft and even Oracle are sniffing around the video social network. As TechCrunch’s Danny Crichton pointed out last week, ba...

A market research firm says Google Cloud is now the leading cloud in the retail industry, partially because retailers don't want to work with Amazon Web Services (GOOG, GOOGL)

The market research firm Canalys named Google Cloud the leading cloud in the retail industry.  That's notable, given that rivals Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure are seen to dominate the overall cloud computing industry. Under CEO Thomas Kurian, Google Cloud has placed its focus on appealing directly to six specific industries, including retail — a strategy that includes hiring sales and marketing staff dedicated to that purpose.  Canalys says that in Google Cloud's ability to offer adv...

Google Cloud partners say that the company has gotten more flexible since Thomas Kurian took over as CEO. That flexibility can be seen in how it gives customers wiggle room when it comes to the finer points of their contracts — like allowing them to take credits that were intended for one Google Cloud service, and allowing them to apply them to other services.  The company has also expanded its outreach to partners, including by giving money for sales and marketing to developers who build soft...

Trump administration announces major midband spectrum auction for 5G

5G is increasingly coming into focus as a set of technologies that has the potential to dramatically expand the quality, bandwidth, and range of wireless connectivity. One of the major blocks to actually rolling out these technologies though is simply spectrum: there just isn’t enough of it available for private use. 5G needs spectrum at very low frequencies to penetrate buildings and increase range, and it also needs high frequencies to support the huge bandwidth that future applications will r...
