Podcast: Mark McLoughlin, OpenStack Goodness

Mark and I have recorded a podcast before in Belgium four months ago today in fact, and on the back of all the interest at Red Hat Summit talking OpenStack and the buzz around OpenStack itself just being so hot I thought it was time to do another cast with Mark.

With Havana on the radar, with HeatAPI, TripleO, SDN and so many other projects and initiatives going ballistic I wanted to take his temperature and see what his take was on OpenStack Developer Summit that we both attended and also the road ahead.

Catch up as well with the OpenStack podcast I also recorded in Boston talking RDO with Perry Myers and Rhys Oxenham which is also worth a listen talking about Red Hat OpenStack, RDO and the plans that are evolving. You can find that episode on the Red Hat Summit Podcast page – here.

Podcast: Brian Stevens, Red Hat CTO talks OpenStack

brian

So today we have a very special podcast for you with Brian Stevens our CTO at Red Hat. Brian kindly recorded this with me, I’d meant to record this twice before, at GigaOM last November and then at ODS in Portland but Brian is always so damn busy I didn’t get a chance to get a microphone in front of him. I’m doing some more recording with the exec team in June in Boston for the official Red Hat Summit podcasting channel I’m setting up which I’ll blog more about in the coming weeks prior to Summit.

Brian is what I’d call a tech prophet, a thought leader in every way. He’s watched Red Hat evolve and he’s watched the market embrace Open Source and against that tsunami of demand he’s crafted and shaped supported technology offerings that have seen the company grow to fit customer ambition. That is no easy task to marshall.

He’s been a trailblazer for OpenStack, hugely supportive and very humble in how he’s ensured our contributory and community approach is transparent and very real. Hear more on the podcast. We talk OpenStack, the Red Hat RDO community release, the amazing HeatAPI project and we take you behind the scenes.

Not often you get to listen to the CTO of a $1bn+ company talk openly and honestly about tech, so take time out to listen to it, remember to subscribe via iTunes, Stitcher internet Radio or the RSS feed directly to the shows, for those that haven’t ever listened there is some thirty three hours of broadcasting there to catch up on.

Enjoy the show and come back soon for more unique content from the Cloud Evangelist podcast channel.

Podcast: Diane Mueller talks OpenShift Origin

Diane Mueller, the gloriously self styled “PaaS Queen” on our OpenShift team sat down with me at Openstack Developer Summit in Portland almost two weeks ago now and talked everything OpenShift Origin. Boy was it a doozie.. This lady is seriously amazing when it comes to understanding the PaaS marketplace and she needs you to listen to her. She had me at go when we were recording, held me in the palm of her hand the entire session and I would follow her into battle in a heartbeat folks.

Use OpenShift ? Use Heroku ? Thinking about PaaS ? Then you don’t want to miss this podcast, Diane is a heavy hitter and she has really started to blaze a trail at Red Hat since joining us earlier this year. You know when you have one of those “Come to Jesus” moments, someone flicks a light on upstairs and stuff falls into place ? Diane has that ability to shake the wheat from the chaff and demonstrates it in todays show.

Come back soon for two major podcasts on Cloud legality with Kuan Ho, and a discussion with Brian Stevens CTO of Red Hat talking OpenStack and Open Source.
