It's another enterprise and techcast with Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela. This week, your hosts are grilling a special guest: EMC's Chad Sakac. Last night they spoke to the storage guru, prolific blogger and virtual geek – who become a senior veep at EMC in January – about his promotion and new responsibilities, Oracle buying Xsigo, what's up with VMware, virtual servers and more. It's a good one, so just press play...

Oracle buys Xsigo

  • Oracle's PR spins Xsigo as Software Defined Networking (SDN);
  • Chad: “Sorry Oracle, Xsigo IS NOT Software Defined Networking”; and
  • why it looks like a reaction to VMware buying Nicira.

VMware’s boldest move yet

  • The advent of virtual networking – with virtual servers combined with vSphere’s storage virtualisation
  • VMware is building the complete virtual stack
  • How does the landscape change now for VMware, EMC and their competitors?
  • Enterprise deployment of SDNs
  • How do EMC and VMware keep the VMware lovefest going?

Big changes at EMC and VMware

  • EMC’s President Pat Gelsinger is now the CEO of VMware and Paul Maritz is vice chairman at EMC
  • How does Gelsinger manage VMware’s ecosystem partners having come directly from EMC?
  • What’s next for CloudFoundry?
