So Say SMEs in Virtualization and Cloud | Cloud Supremacy: Public, Private, Hybrid

In this week’s episode of So Say SMEs in Virtualization & Cloud, Todd and I discuss Private Clouds with VMware, Public Clouds with Amazon and race for Cloud Supremacy between the two market leaders in Private and Public Clouds respectively. We also discuss VMware’s Hands-on-Lab Cloud Performance hardening and Amazon’s statement around high performance on their Public Clouds.

Let us know what you think.

Thoughts From the Floor at AWS re:Invent 2013

I spent all my time during the conference hours at re:Invent Central aka the AWS Solutions Floor. So my conversations were primarily with folks who stopped by the Gravitant booth. My observations from these conversations were: (1) AWS is easy to consume but hard when managing multiple accounts and getting a handle on pricing; (2) Hybrid Cloud initiatives are in full swing; and (3) cloud services brokerage will emerge beyond a nascent technology in 2014.

See you in the Clouds because that’s where all services aim to be!

I am looking forward to my first AWS re:Invent event. Come visit me in AWS re:Invent Central at Gravitant’s Booth #1012 to learn how Gravitant Cloud Broker helps cloud managers get a grip on their AWS clouds.

Personally, I am interested to see how the AWS community compares to the VMware community and what the current overlap is between users of the market leader in public cloud and the market leader in virtualization. I will be attending CloudBeers on Tuesday at 8PM at Public House at the Venetian. I will also try to get in on the Pub Crawl conversations.

See you at AWS re:Invent 2013!
