Look into my eyes, take me to the clouds above

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Podcast Last week's Nekkid Tech was all about the future of tape as a storage medium and back-up software lock-ins.

This episode, Greg Knieriemen and trusty sidekick Ed Saipetch (@edasi) shift a gear and chat about cloud hosting, big data, Mardi Gras and er, divas. Joining them are Dell storage evangelist Gina Minks (@gminks) and Diva of Disruptive Technologies Christina Weil (@c_weil).

This week's topics:

  • Christina's corporate apartment in New Orleans
  • The Cloud Connect conference, customers and expectations
  • Crystal the Unicorn
  • The cost of hosting with Amazon versus in-house
  • Cloud bandwidth costs and constraints
  • Big data failures
  • Christina's Mardi Gras outfit
  • Whitney Houston
