Our regular podcast, this week recorded live in San Jose, California, is back with your hosts Greg Knieriemen and Ed Saipetch – Sarah Vela is away.

Before getting down to the technology news of the day, Greg reveals he just checked into a hotel that he thought was holding a sports mascot convention. But rather than being a meet-up for people who support their college team, it was filled with... well, this. He was put on the 18th floor to avoid the, er, noise.

On to business, the podcasters have on board special guest Chad Sakac, senior vice-president for global pre-sales technical resources at EMC. Check out the agenda below, download the MP3, subscribe to it, or just press play to hear what's going on from the audio stream.
