vSoup worried that RightScale is trying to steal their mojo.

Bergen, Norway – Milton Keynes, UK - Zürich, CH -  The attention of the vSoup Podcast has been drawn to the fact that RightScale acknowledges it’s existence to the point where vSoup is being used as an internal term in their organization. The vSoup Podcast wishes to state that it has no prior knowledge about this and was not aware of any known usage of the term beyond it’s original intention.

While the vSoup Podcast acknowledges that the name is brilliant, there are worries that the incorrect usage of the vSoup term might lead to confusion and cloudification of it’s good name and reputation. The vSoup Podcast therefore wishes to clearly state that the term was coined, and subsequently used, by a group of three individuals with no prior podcasting experience. The first episode of vSoup was released in January 2011, which clearly pre-dates any usage on RightScale’s behalf.

No guests, just hairy wizards. If that doesn’t scare you, give it a listen as we ramble on about things like the Swiss Navy, VMware Airwatch, Simon Long moving to the US and adaptation rates on new technology. We even talk about tablets, and the Top vBlog Vote 2014. Thanks everyone for voting us #2 in the Podcast category!

As for the recording itself, well, some time things don’t really go according to plan, even if you don’t have a plan to begin with.

What a feeling, being’s believing!

This time we have Vaughn Stewart from Pure Storage. As since this, thankfully, is audio-only we have no idea if he was wearing leggings or not. Just like Irene Cara we have moved past that awkward third album phase, and discuss a few topics ranging from epic bus rides, all flash storage arrays (AFA) to upgrade issues. Oh, of course, the VCP recertification policy gets some airtime as well.

It clocks in at an hour, so there better be some content in there somewhere.

Once in a blue moon, when the stars align just right over the northern hemisphere, wonderful things happen. We don’t know if that was the case here, all we know is that we are joined by Matt Northam from Nutanix.

Naturally we talk about the pending VSAN release, converged infrastructures and Nutanix.  Has virtualisation reached the same complexity levels as it’s predecessor? Also, since Matt has a dark history in security, we touch on that too.
We also get some rare insights into Ed and how he works. Both professionally, with his current migration project, but also when he starts arguing with his own echo for some reason.

Once again we go commando, that is without a guest. We get into the Wardrobe malfunctions and public speaking and the FeedForward VMUG initiative. Monster VMs, and 1 to 1 virtualization, is it really an option, and why?

A little storage discussion regarding RDMs, NPIV and Christian shares a story about 3Par / StoreServ reclamation and SCSI UNMAP issues.

Obligatory VCDX talk is of course obligatory.

Another naked one, with just the three of us. Budgets and accounting, and Christian kind goes on a rant. And this podcast thing, does anyone really care/listen to them?

Oh, and Google buys a bit of hot air/smoke Nest, is that an internet of things or an internet of Google?

And we couldn’t resist, should VCDX design samples really be available?

 

Yay, we turned 40. Collectively that is.

For the first recording in 2014, we do it like the last time; Three guys hosting, no guests. Except for General Purple that is.

Other than that, we talk a bit about Chris’ career change, business travel, hypervisor footprints, Windows Server Clusters and filer appliances. Also, does virtual appliances add or reduce complexity?

Kendrick Coleman’s JumpSquares, his very own cloudy thing, and we might have a suggestion or two for it as well.

Oh, and some of us has found an F-ing cool tool too.

Reloaded, huh? What does that mean? Well, basically we have decided to refresh ourselves a little bit, and change a couple of things. It only took us 38 recordings over nearly three years to decide to change things up.

This episode has no guests, and that might just be how we roll in the future, unless we happen to have a guest with us. Don’t worry though, this will mean that there will be more vSoup than ever before, in fact it means that we have grown to that age where being regular is important…

Anyhow, we get into a few topics this time too, things like stacks, blades, SDS, unprofessional social media usage, the Nordic VMUG conference and yes, Christian is writing a book.  Ed hopes it is erotic fiction, but to be honest, the world is not ready for that.

Anyway, we hope you enjoy the newish format, listen in for more details.

vSoup @ VMworldIn this special VMworld Europe recording, we are joined by Craig Waters from the APAC Virtualization Podcast and our usual VMworld stand-in, Ed Griegson. For once, Christian managed leave Norway and join the party, but this time Ed is missing.

This is decidedly the most ghetto recording we have done; Recorded on Craig’s iPhone connected to Christian’s microphone via Bluetooth with the same microphone connected to Ed G’s Macbook for power. Ed talks via a Skype connection on Christian’s iPhone which in turn is connected to an external speaker. Simple, right?

All of this just because the vBrownbag Crew packed their things together on wednesday. Slackers.

Oh well, enjoy this weird (yes, it’s back) roundtable discussion of all things VMworld, and a few things that are not. Oh wait, why did we need a stand in? Turns out we did not need one, but Ed G is always good fun.

hoff-stoagie-300x200Chris Hoff. Better known (at least on Twitter) as Beaker is our guest in this one. How we managed to pull that off, is still beyond us, but hey, it all worked out beautifully.

Just like his Twitter stream, this one is a constant barrage of fun, knowledge and insight (and some random things, after all this guy has tweeted over 80k times).

Grab a Hoffacc[h]ino from your favorite caffeine dealer, try to sit still and have a listen!

Topics:

  • Why has Hoff been quiet on twitter and does Twitter in fact cause rage?
  • Infosec career evolution
  • SDDC and changes in attack surfaces
  • Security bolted on vs. baked in
  • Onion shaped security model: Just add parsley or cut the onion differently?
  • Are people the weakest security link?
  • NSA, Prism and snooping

Lets all hope we are able to release a new one after this, who knows.

I always feel like somebody’s watching me.

And I have no privacy.
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me.
Who’s playing tricks on me?
