Podcast: Antoine Coetsier – Exoscale

I am recording this week in Amsterdam at the Cloudstack Collaboration Conference and you will see various shows appear throughout this week and next that I’ve recorded while on the ground here.

Todays show is with Antoine Coetsier from Exoscale in Switzerland, a country very close to my heart. Exoscale are a Cloudstack vendor/partner but also a Red Hat partner too who are actively working with large and medium sized organisations moving to Cloud.

I recorded this show yesterday afternoon and feel somewhat like a 1940s journalist trying to get copy back to my news desk having had what I can only describe as the slowest tethered internet connection I’ve had in 10+ years or more to upload this at 1.2k/sec. Painful. Would have been quicker to send it by carrier pigeon. Technology, it seems, in 3G carrier relationships is just poor across Europe.

Come back later for more shows from the conference.

Podcast: Udo Seidel of Amadeus Talks Gluster/OpenStack

I was at the Gluster London Community event in London yesterday and listened to speakers there talk about Gluster and demystifying what it is and also how it has made an impact in the storage world.

One of the speakers there was Udo Seidel from Amadeus in Munich who is well known in Open Source circles and a great guy to talk tech to. We meant to record this in Edinburgh as he was also at Linuxcon but time ran out. So we reconvened and yesterday we put this ten minute podcast together for you.

Come back next week for some more great content. Remember you can subscribe to the show via iTunes on your iOS or MacOS device of choice or any platform via the RSS or my syndicated feeds.

Linuxcon Europe – Show 2 – Guy Martin

maxresdefault

Joining me at Linuxcon Europe for an overdue podcast is Guy Martin who works in the Open Source group within Samsung America. Guy is ex Red Hat and ex Collab.net and like me, an “old man” of Open Source, he’ll forgive me for describing him as such. I’ve wanted to get a microphone in front of him for a LONG time so I made the most of having him with headphones and a mic.

We talk responsibilities in OSS development, playing fair, briefly touch on ethics and the GPL as well as how OSS and Linux is shaping technology creation and adoption.

Join me later for three or four more shows and thanks to Guy for making time to record this show.

Podcast & streaming video – OpenStack

rmrhys

Apologies it’s taken so long to get the latest content online. The two recorded podcasts I had scheduled had to be dropped because of content issues / legal issues and having been on paternity leave and then conference travel time has got the better of me.

Yesterday we made up for it, Rhys Oxenham has a new role at Red Hat that we want to get out there and talk about and also there is a lot of cool stuff happening in OpenStack aligned with milestone 3 of Havana and open hybrid cloud in general.

The podcasts we recorded, the first we’re bringing you this week, the second one next Wednesday, however there is a break with tradition. If you’ve ever wondered how we do these podcasts especially on the road, I’ve made a video for you of the podcast which you can stream below.


Enjoy and come back next week for another show and some great articles.

Podcast: Arun Oberoi VP of Global Sales at Red Hat

arun

Another heavy hitting podcast this time featuring Arun Oberoi VP of Global Sales at Red Hat.

Well worth listening to, we talk Cloud, OpenStack, Red Hat growth and positioning, our community responsibilities. Arun is great to talk to, and to listen to, I remember recording this and having one of those “come to Jesus” moments when stuff slots into place. His legacy experience in the IT industry allows him to paint a picture with credibility and assurance.

Do take time out your day to listen to it.

Coming up next week a podcast with Karl Stevens talking Cloud Providers, CloudForms and much more, the planned podcasts with Rhys Oxenham and James Labocki are shelved until we can all get together at Red Hat Boston Summit.

Advance ticket discounting and more information on Summit can be found here.

Podcast: David Egts talks Secure OpenShift

If you hadn’t noticed theres a bit of a credit crunch on, it’s affecting every aspect of life including provisioning of every aspect of government and military forces and their supporting services and solutions bodies. Governments and the military use en ever increasing amount of Open Source technologies, and a lot of platforms that have grown up with open APIs and that fit secure accreditation regimes.

We’re talking DISA, STAX, how to get to secure PaaS using OpenShift and how we are helping defence (or defense for those over the pond that can’t spell) get to secured accredited trusted PaaS.

David Egts has been on a podcast here before and appears weekly on the Red Hat Gunnar and David show that I listen to avidly. David recently wrote a great article about how military platforms should not be deployed on proprietary PaaS solutions and frameworks, if you haven’t read it go do so before you listen to the podcast.

Thanks for this show also go out to Red Hat’s Paul W Frields who wrote the amazing Pulsecaster that sits on Fedora and that I used in a very different split channel mode this week thats allowed me to get this remote podcast out fast and in great audio quality considering there is 6000 miles between the two people talking. Also this week both David and I are solely using Samson GoMic’s and the entire thing as usual mixed using the free and open source Audacity DAW. The GoMic is a revelation if you don’t know what I’m talking about follow the link.

Come back soon for two podcasts next week talking CloudForms with James Labocki and OpenStack with Rhys Oxenham.

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.

brianstevens

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.
