Your Uncle? (Photo by Stephen Foskett)

We’ve gone full circle, sort of, with a return of the wonderful Bob Plankers as our guest. You know, The Lone Sysadmin guy. The hosts enjoy is blog posts, and we sure do enjoy having him as a guest as well. After all, he was a guest in our fourth podcast¬†back in 2011 as well.

 

This time around, we talk about what all the cool kids talk about: Hyper-convergence, Fibre Channel vs IP Storage, the future of VMware and containers! Are we on fleek or what?!

 

And when you think about it, is open source really the drug dealer model, and is EMC turning into your local hood’s friendly¬†street pharmacist? And if so, what does that make Chad?

Three hosts, three guests. What could possibly go wrong?

Stephen Foskett and Matt Simmons from Tech Field Day join us for the first time, and by popular demand we welcome back Bob Plankers! Naturally most of the talk revolves around Tech Field Day #7 which is right around the corner, but we manage to squeeze in some vSphere 5 as well.
