For those bright eyed amongst you the podcasts stopped broadcasting new content on June 12th 2014. I'm not going to go into the long and rather bizarre story now as to why the podcasts stopped, I've eluded to it on the Podcast page you can access by clicking this link or the menu above.
From that page you can access ALL the archived shows from The CloudEvangelist Website and Red Hat Summit Radio 2013 and 2014 archived thanks to the wonderful folk at Stitcher Smart Radio where the show was also broadcast from and remains.
If you want to subscribe to an RSS there is a listing for one on the podcasts page that remains live.
Apologies for broken embedded links - I won't be going back through the site to repair/replace them as this site is all but deprecated with new current activities.
Tom Nicholls from the British Standards Institute joins me today on a podcast talking secure cloud best practices, governance and the Cloud Security Alliance STAR programme that the BSi is now not only endorsing but promoting heavily to sit alongside ISO standards.
I was in Holland at the CloudStack Collaboration Conference and recorded a number of shows that have made it out via RSS but I haven't talked about here. So as it's the run up to Christmas today is a podcast bonanza with no less than four shows highlighted here for your aural delectation.
The first show I am bringing you here is with Tryggvi Lárusson of GreenQloud in Iceland. GreenQloud I wanted to talk to because they are 100% Green environmentally friendly. Using the thermal geological heat in the substrata of the Icelandic crust and hydroelectric power to power their datacentre. Big time Open Source user I wanted to hear from them about their startup and plans for growth.
The second show is with a good new friend Arjan Eriks of Schuberg Philis in Holland who are a major cloud provider working with upstream verticals and customers in specific niche marketplaces (regulated and auditable cloud needs to meet Dutch and EU privacy specific workloads). A company who make revenue and who grow based entirely on their Cloud ambition. Great guy - commercial and balanced and able to paint a picture to the listener of what customers want and how to retain them.
The Red Hat Cloud Provider Programme is a great way of you being able to both stand up a business and also to attract, and to retain custom. Talk to me offline for more info.
Remember you can listen via your chosen podcast client of choice by adding my RSS (http://cloudevangelist.libsyn.com/rss) or via iTunes, Podfeed, Stitcher or many of the syndicated sites that carry my content. In fact 90% of my readers now come from sites other than Cloudevangelist.org or redhat.com and that number is growing weekly. Just glad we put shows out that are easy to digest and to listen to. Remember, your feedback and your emails matter. If there is a show you like - tell folk, retweet it. This stuff is free and it's designed to help you.
Now this was a fun show to record, talking to a realworld cloud architect at one of Hollands leading new technology companies Schuberg Philis who sponsored the Cloud event we've been attending this week.
Funs is one of two of their architecture team tasked with helping companies in Holland in the Schuberg Philis growing portfolio of customers to get to cloud safely, navigating governance and privacy regulation and ensuring their workloads and data are successfully transitioned to cloud.
Hope you enjoy the show more to come later if I still have power and bandwidth to get them out pre my flight back to the UK.
