So Matt and I have been trying to record this for an age, technology and ambient noise from the construction crew extending our Westford office got in the way a few weeks back so plan B - DIY remote podcast over Google+ recorded here in the studio in the UK - what we ended up with was a really good tech chat about OpenShift, hosted on-premise PaaS and a deep dive into SELinux and the reasons both of us have for trying to persuade you to leave it on by default.

If you're into PaaS, use OpenShift, want to know where we are at with regards to releasing OpenShift On-Premise then you NEED to listen to this. It will at least make you even more excited (I hope) about the next two months of stuff coming out of Red Hat.

Matt, if you've heard him speak at Summit, or JUDCon (Google or search YouTube if you want to see re-runs of his talks, well worth the time spent doing it) is infectiously enthusiastic about both PaaS and security by default.

Download it, listen to it, comments welcome or questions - we're here to talk to you.

I was stood at GigaOM in Holland last week and got involved in a heated discussion over ITIL as a standard in cloud. Tried to point out ITIL is a framework not a standard. Took mental notes while I was there and the result is this short podcast where I can rant and let off steam. The power of the microphone is sometimes awesome and it let's me educate as well as try to show my enthusiasm for what we're doing here in Cloud.

Also I take time out to talk about the London Developer Day we're hosting at London South Bank University on the 1st November (thats next week !!) so if you haven't registered you need to do so asap right now.

Since the launch of the Technology Preview Red Hat OpenStack release a couple of months back a lot of people have acted surprised that Red Hat is actually the third largest contributor to OpenStack on a commit basis. We are 10000% committed to the success of OpenStack and some of our key developers are pushing key stable sources into the project.

One of these newer projects is HeatAPI which allows a lot of Amazon Web Services integration especially in the upcoming Fulsom release.

For a few months Steven Hardy and I have tried to find time in our schedules to record something and yesterday we managed to record a really good podcast that will appeal to all OpenStack developers.

Steven is also speaking at the London Developer Day (see my previous article) and we discuss this in the podcast.
