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.
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.
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?
Oh, and some of us has found an F-ing cool tool too.
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!
- 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?
Naturally we get into Podcasting for Cancer, which so far has had way more donations than anyone would have thought when it started. Other than that, well it´s mixed bag of topics really.
Go on then, have a nibble.
No guests. Yes, Seriously, no guests.
Just the three of us. Naked. Imagine that, or wait, perhaps not.
Anyway, here it is – Enjoy it if you got that mental image out of your head. If not, things might just get a bit weird.
- VMworld – Observations from people who were not present
- Hands-on Meth-Labs? Did Eric Sloof visit?
Obligatory vSphere 5.5 and new features discussion
Frozen Custard, really?
vCloud Director unofficial news (Since official-ish)
Should SDDC really be called vSoup? (We vote yes, surprisingly enough)
Cloud Standards Customer Council
everything else standardizes why not cloud?
APIs for fun, ?????, and profit
Halo Marketing – why stick with the same brand?
We are joined by Gurusimran Khalsa (vbrowncoat), “GS”, this time around. We´re not sure if it´s the summer holiday mode, or perhaps just general delirium, but for some reason this one goes off on a bit of a tangent.
Dutch Caravans? Really?
- VCDX Designs
- Troubleshooting difficult problems
- Is PernixData chocolate ice cream?
- VMworld 2013 – whats happening
- Chromecast, AppleTV and possible nefarious images.
- Idea to make your presenter life easier on the road by @BasRaayman
- DevOPs and The Phoenix Project
- VMworld 2013 speculations
- vCloud automation, Dynamic Ops and Openstack
And there it is. 35 minutes of mostly weird, geek laughter.
Two thirds of the Geek Whisperers Podcast join is for a decidedly non-techie serving of vSoup.
Naturally we get into a social media, the good, the bad and the ugly.
- Using social media correctly and incorrectly
- Is Community Social 2.0
- Getting weird IT guys to be extroverts
- BBS Systems the first Twitter type Platform?
- How Social Media created vSoup
- Is Social Media being used for any other professions than IT?
- Social media usage and challenges on the horizon
So there it is, a podcast with another podcast crew talking social media. Meta much?
Guess who´s back? Yes, yet again we get to philosophize with Mike Laverick.
Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K, and perhaps we´re all suffering from a mild form of hysteria, but this is a fun one!
Listen to this dude Rufus, he knows what he’s talking about.
Our most excellent list of topics include:
- “Mike’s Epic Journey to the vCloud“
- Mike’s new Role at VMware
- Can you turn a blog into a book?
- Evolution of vCloud director thru versions
- Other cloud automation tools
- VMware and Puppet
- Does 68+ posts on vCloud director make it too complicated? (or even 71 as it is at the time of writing)
- Usage cases for vCloud Director and other products
- 3rd party Virtualization stacks
And remember: be excellent to each other!
(ok, ok, I went overboard with the references in this one, but hey, I believe our adventure through time has taken a most serious turn.)
Nick, who blogs at nickapedia.com is as quick with his mouth as he is with his blogging, so you´re in for a real quickfire episode!
I´m sure we have missed something, but conversation items include:
- Nicks Career Transformation
- Automation – will it replace YOU?
- DevOPs and the next level of automation
- Puppet and how to make sure your underpants are on first.
- Automation with regards to the evolution of Tech
- API’s and their importance
Now, let us all hope that Chris figures out how many hats to wear, or if he remembered to put on underwear before pants. We do not want Chris going commando, trust me.
