Top three mobile application threats

Podcast

speaking_in_tech Greg Knieriemen podcast enterprise

It's another episode of El Reg's podcast, bringing you news, views, and rumours about enterprise kit, hot flash models (the enterprise kind, don't be a perve), consumer baubles, hip-hop gorilla memes, next week's StorageBeers (at London's Lamb and Flag pub from about 17:30 on 25 September, all welcome) and more...

Hanging out in – yes, it's true – a live Google+ Hangout this week are all three SIT presenters: Greg Knieriemen, Sarah Vela and Ed Saipetch. This week the podcast was recorded from a live Google+ Hangout with special guest Vaughn Stewart, formerly of NetApp, currently at Pure Storage and, apparently, often snugly zipped up in a gorilla suit.

The crew chat about hurdles to adopting flash storage – mostly money and the fact that enterprise bods don't want to spend it; how VCs are so happy to fund hardware startups but keep the wallet firmly shut when it comes to software and services plays; and how Vaughan worked his way up from the mailroom installing filers to where he is today (see vid below)...

This week we discuss:

  • VMworld recap and best parties
  • Ed's CloudBeat recap
  • Vaughn leaves NetApp for Pure Storage
  • The Gorilla Suit
  • Vaughn's mom
  • Chromecast giveaaway
  • VMworld Barcelona
  • StorageBeers in London, 25 September
  • Ed's bed
  • EMC's big announcement
