“You may get a new physical server once a month, you may get a new VM once every ten, fifteen, or 20 minutes. You may get a new container once every ten seconds.” -Kenaz Kwa, Puppet It didn’t take long during our conversation with Puppet’s Kenaz Kwa and Tyler Pace to understand the challenge of

Modern Accountability in Multi-Cloud Management
