Not long ago, I tweeted this:


What was it in reference to? What I’m trying to do with ITS757. There’s two principles I have yet to see a compelling rebuttal:

  • You can do most things cheaper in-house, and;
  • You can hope to compete with the big guys’ reliability and security

Who’s this bad news for? Those who’ve invested a lot of time playing Minesweeper getting vendor and security certifications.

For my stuff, I chose to go with the totes-not-evil big G. Maybe there was someone else I could have chosen, but I have experience, a discomfort level with their stuff.

Could I have made pretty graphs about it? Sure. Could I have done weeks’-long analysis? Absolutely. Would I recommend a customer have me do that? You bet.
