Podcasts from the Trenches

I was in Holland at the CloudStack Collaboration Conference and recorded a number of shows that have made it out via RSS but I haven’t talked about here. So as it’s the run up to Christmas today is a podcast bonanza with no less than four shows highlighted here for your aural delectation.

The first show I am bringing you here is with Tryggvi Lárusson of GreenQloud in Iceland. GreenQloud I wanted to talk to because they are 100% Green environmentally friendly. Using the thermal geological heat in the substrata of the Icelandic crust and hydroelectric power to power their datacentre. Big time Open Source user I wanted to hear from them about their startup and plans for growth.

The second show is with a good new friend Arjan Eriks of Schuberg Philis in Holland who are a major cloud provider working with upstream verticals and customers in specific niche marketplaces (regulated and auditable cloud needs to meet Dutch and EU privacy specific workloads). A company who make revenue and who grow based entirely on their Cloud ambition. Great guy – commercial and balanced and able to paint a picture to the listener of what customers want and how to retain them.

The Red Hat Cloud Provider Programme is a great way of you being able to both stand up a business and also to attract, and to retain custom. Talk to me offline for more info.

Remember you can listen via your chosen podcast client of choice by adding my RSS (http://cloudevangelist.libsyn.com/rss) or via iTunes, Podfeed, Stitcher or many of the syndicated sites that carry my content. In fact 90% of my readers now come from sites other than Cloudevangelist.org or redhat.com and that number is growing weekly. Just glad we put shows out that are easy to digest and to listen to.
