Our weekly Speaking in Tech podcast is back with Greg Knieriemen - and for this week's episode, special guest Rodney Rogers.

Greg's co-hosts Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela are away, so we welcome Rodney, a serial entrepreneur and chairman and CEO of Virtustream, who is gently quizzed on how one should go about building an IT company in today's tough economic times - and how to pit a public cloud upstart against mighty giants Amazon Web Services and IBM.

  • Redefining cloud resource metrics: MicroVM (uVM)
  • The NSA scandal and skepticism of public cloud
