This week, your Speaking In Tech podcast hosts Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela are dropping it live from VMworld with special guests Stephen Spellicy, senior director product management and enterprise data protection at HP and Bryan Beal, director at cloud and service provider strategy at Brocade.

Greg, Sarah and Ed catch up on the VMware party so far, including how Sarah finally lost her VMware virginity – "there was no blood", she reassures us. Stephen gets a thorough grilling from Greg and Eddie on HP's backup strategy, while Bryan chips in on how the term "cloud" is now not only old-hat, but actually has negative connotations.

This week the team discuss:

  • VMworld party recap
  • Nicera and OpenDaylight SDN
  • HP pushing backup to the cloud
  • Evolution of Software Defined Networking
  • Stack orchestration beyond SDN
  • Backup as opex
  • Enterprises running low value workloads in AWS
  • Redefining cloud
  • And rubber unicorns
