It's another recap of the week in tech at El Reg's sole podcast - coming to you live from England's capital this week. Join your host, Greg Knieriemen - Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela remain Stateside - for a wrap-up of all the latest in consumer technology, and specifically storage. This week, Greg is joined by two special guests: Chris Evans of Architecting.IT and El Reg's brand-new guest blogger Martin Glassborow, otherwise known as StorageBod. London readers are invited to join them for a StorageBeer at Aldgate's Dispensary pub. In the podcast, they discuss object storage (a great idea, but no one seems to know what to DO with it); the Reg fraternity of bloggers and podcasters; what makes a decent beer; cloud hype; British politics; the divisive power of former Blighty prime minister Maggie Thatcher; and more...

This week we discuss...

  • Catching up with Martin and Chris
  • Good British beers
  • StorageBeers TONIGHT in London
  • The challenge of object storage
  • The real cost of public cloud storage
  • Reconciling cloud hype
  • Data retention in the cloud
  • The evolution of long-term archives
  • Data retention, privacy and geography
