Vulturization: 'Privacy' is fightin' words to cloud touters – they get angry

Plus: Canadians have figured out OpenStack ... surely the end is nigh?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Podcast The Register today starts a new podcast series Vulturization, hosted by yours truly. We're honoured to have as our first guests on the show Cloud A, a Canadian OpenStack cloud provider.

We explore what it's like to be a cloud provider in Canada, whether the NSA's rather liberal attitude to individual privacy has been a boost to their fortunes, and why they call themselves "the hat incinerators".

Being as these folks stand up OpenStack, I also took the time to find out what it's like to work with the community and whether it's really as much of a pain to work with as everyone claims.

Why did Cloud A choose it? Did it customise it? The answers to these questions and more are available in our first Vulturization MP3.

Listen to the podcast using the player below, or download it here. This is our first edition of Vulturization, so your feedback is welcome. ®
