speaking_in_tech Greg Knieriemen podcast enterprise

It's time for the weekly Speaking in Tech podcast, hosted by Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela - although Sarah is out and about yet again enjoying SXSW 2013. But the guys are joined by special guest Brian Gracely, vice-president of solutions at enterprise-grade cloud software maker Virtustream and co-host of the Cloudcast.Net podcast.

This week the trio discuss:

  • Sarah is still not back yet from this year's SXSW.
  • Greg is on the move for work and recording the podcast from a hotel over a weekend when there's no one else on travelling on business - three words: lounge lizard hell. 1980s and 1970s covers bands, you name it.
  • A quick review of the Cloudcast.net podcast.
  • A charity fundraiser involving doughnuts and a five-mile run, aka "eat, run, vomit".
  • The skinny on Virtustream and what it's like to work in a startup after years in globo-corps.
  • How to juggle application workloads in the cloud, starting off with the large code-bases first and moving onto the "low-hanging fruit" of simpler software last.
  • VMware tweets a leak.
  • Shake-ups at EMC-owned VMware.
  • The big challenge for cloud-service providers.
