It's another episode of El Reg's best and only podcast, bringing you everything you need to know about the goings-on in enterprise and consumer tech. This week's episode is hosted live from Cisco Live by Ed Saipetch and Greg Knieriemen (co-host Sarah Vela is MIA). Ed and Greg sweat it out with special guests Greg Ferro, host of the Packet Pushers podcast and chief global network architect at Canopy Cloud; Ethan Banks, network engineer and prolific blogger; Amy Lewis, comms ninja and community cat herder at Cisco Data Centre; and Chris Wahl, Cisco Live blogger.

There's a lot going on in this one. Greg is following Amy on Twitter again, Amazon's not reeeeeally the baddie when it comes to traditional IT bods, plus, if you're trying to build a cloud, you might want to plug in and download.

Other hot topics this week:

  • Cisco Live in Orlando

  • VCHS and the public cloud
  • Bridging private and public cloud
  • Amazon is not taking business from traditional IT
