Want to hear a quick and funny wrap-up of everything - well, everything important - that happened in tech this week? El Reg's enterprise and consumer kit gurus Greg Knieriemen and Ed Saipetch are here to discuss the business of tech, the tech of storage, and the quality of watered-down bourbon. They also chat about why SpaceX founder and Tesla Motors and PayPal co-founder Elon Musk would want to sidestep PRs and dive straight into the ring with the NYT reviewer who thought his 'leccy car wasn't up to scratch in cold weather.

This week we welcome special guest Neil Levine, VP for Product for storage firm Inktank, who joins the SIT crew to shed light on how open source is progressing in the enterprise.

This week we discuss:

  • Watered-down tech
  • Tesla test drive debacle
  • Catching up on Inktank
  • Open source as a business model
  • Barriers to object storage
  • OpenStack and CloudStack adoption
  • Software defined... by APIs
  • Open file systems impact on "Big Data"
  • Open source in the enterprise
  • Legacy data... and the challenge of accessing it
