I'm joined on the podcast today by Max Cooter who is editor of CloudPro Magazine for a remotely recorded podcast, Max in Sussex me in windy wet Wiltshire for a podcast I've been meaning to record for some time but last time we tried we couldn't get diaries to sync. Technology allows us to do next best thing other the ether and this is the result we recorded yesterday. We originally aimed to record 8-10 minutes but the discussion got deeper and we ended up putting a lot of things on the table that are vitally important to decision makers and to cloud in general.

I let the session run and listening back when I was mixing the session in the early hours of this morning I am glad I did because here you have a podcast that might just make people start making notes and thinking about their own plans and provisioning and thinking about the structure of their ambitions in Cloud.

Max is a heavyweight, he talks Cloud for a living but gets to see a lot of the actual cloud metrics and deployments across the entire industry so is more "clued up" than most analysts due to exposure. We've worked together on a Dell Think Tank before and we were both out at GigaOM Structure in Amsterdam last year (Max is pictured above on the left during one of the fireside chat sessions).

We talk governance, regulation, security, privacy, PRISM fallout for Cloud, we talk Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider Programme, service providers and the need for conformity, PaaS and OpenShift. CTO and CIO pressures in the datacentre - theres a whole wealth of stuff going on.

Do take time out to listen and come back next week where I have a podcast with Tim Kramer my colleague of way way too many years talking OpenSCAP, Cloud Security, OpenShift and the Cloud Security Alliance. Don't miss it we're going to make some people sit up.

So I'm currently on the road for Red Hat again. Six weeks of travelling, planes, trains, automobiles and maybe even a camel this time. Am in London in a rented ex LOCOG apartment on UK leg of the Red Hat Partner event. Next week I'm in Portugal on event duty, I'm in Egypt, Spain and Amsterdam in short order after.

Tonight I thought I'd reflect on some of the stuff I've seen and heard and also muse / ponder on the position of suppliers and partners in the evolution and growth of Cloud. As I travel around I will be recording using my mobile rig and doing a lot of podcasts and interviews as well as posting pics.

If you want to listen to this it's sub 10 minutes and tries to paint an aural picture of the state of the nation from a partner perspective as well as level some of the playing field. If you are a Red Hat partner who couldn't get to tour maybe this will help you with some adlib non scripted perspective of my take on tour and Cloud tech.
