Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

And so today we kick off with Infosmack Episode 90, the world's best podcast about enterprise tech bar none.

In this week's broadcast - Infosmack's second outing on The Reg we learn that co-hosts Greg Knieriemen and Marc Farley have potty mouths. Who knew that big storage offered so many opportunities for scatological tomfoolery? And clean jokes too.

Today's guest is Greg Schulz, of the analyst firm StorageIO and together they chew the fat over NetApp's recent acquisition of Engenio and stuff such as:

  • Uncertainty about NetApp's Engenio purchase
  • What does this mean for Oracle?
  • Is Oracle now set to buy NetApp?
  • What's the impact for end users since Western Digital picked up HGST for $4bn?
  • How does Seagate react?

You can listen using the Reg Player below, or download the MP3 here.

Oh and another thing. The Infosmack guys are broadcasting live from central London on March 24. Venue is yet to be nailed down - but it will be a pub, that's for certain. We'll let you know the watering hole as soon as we know.

And another another thing: Infosmack is podcasting from SNW in Santa Clara, CA April 4 - 7. ®
