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.
