I recommend adding ‘Cloud’ tag to cover Cloud computing topics that are not necessarily DevOps or Hardware related.
I second this, as long as the tag is “someone else’s computer”.
As usual with tag proposals, an excellent way to make the case if you want to would be to come up with a list of existing posts that you feel should be classified under it.
“cloud” seems really vague to me. We have devops, hardware, virtualization, but there isn’t a containers tag. Would adding a containers tag cover the bases?
The existing tags cover most of the container-related articles I can think of. If it’s about the low-level tech of containers, in the sense of OS-level virtualization, then virtualization seems fine (I wouldn’t reserve virtualization only for hardware virtualization). And if it’s about the whole orchestrating/images/deploying/etc. side of containers, then devops is a good fit.
here is something that I posted yesterday about Spotify moving to Google Cloud: https://lobste.rs/s/n8lqyn/announcing_spotify_infrastructure_s_googley_future
This does not necessarily qualify as virtualization or containers. It is mostly infrastructure / Cloud how about we add an ‘Infrastructure’ tag or a IaaS and PaaS tags?
