In this week's enterprise techcast, Ed Saipetch is steering the ship solo - live from Amsterdam. The lucky sod is in North Holland for Structure:Europe 2012, and has left Greg Knieriemen and Sarah Vela languishing in the States while he tears up canal-lined streets in the name of tech.

His special guests this week are Derrick Harris, co-chair of Structure:Europe and senior writer at GigaOm; Sam Johnston, director of Cloud and IT Services at Equinix; Joe Baguley, CTO for VMware in EMEA; and Tony Lucas, founder and SVP of product at Flexiant.

This week we discuss...

  • Structure Europe 2012
  • The momentum (or lack of) behind CloudStack and OpenStack
  • Cloud services vs products
  • C-level perception of cloud
  • Open source paranoia
  • Telcos are the worst providers of cloud service
  • The process problem
  • IT hoarders
  • Data center transition and the business value automation
  • Dynamic Ops and the future of vCloud Director
  • Software Defined Bullshit
  • Calling it a cloud doesn't make it so
