speaking_in_tech Greg Knieriemen podcast enterprise

Pop on your headphones: Greg Knieriemen and co-host Ed Saipetch are back with another enterprise tech-cast and this week they've bagged a very special guest in the form of George Reese, co-founder and CTO of enStratus. It's fair to say he knows a little bit about cloud computing and storage. The guys discuss media doom-and-gloom about the cloud (who us? *innocent face* - Ed), object storage, OpenStack, Wi-Fi light bulbs and more...

This week on SIT:

  • Catching up with Eddie
  • EnStratus evolution
  • Cloud and the barrier to the enterprise
  • Managing multiple clouds at once
  • Netflix fails to own its failure, passes the buck to AWS
  • Enterprise IT shouldn’t be trying to boil the ocean
  • Amazon Web Services doesn’t need an enterprise plan
  • Technology buying is broken
  • OpenStack is getting the buzz... but is it gaining customers?
  • The object storage challenge
  • Home automation and Wi-Fi light bulbs
