They're baa-ack.... It's another enterprise and consumer tech cast hosted by The Dude of enterprise tech, Greg Knieriemen, cloud and storage playa Ed Saipetch and web2.0 maestra Sarah Vela. Storage architect Chris Evans is a guest on the show this week as they discuss Kim Dotcom, the Nexus Galaxy, and whether virtual and software-defined networking will ever be as widespread as server virtualisation...

This week we discuss:

  • The return of the prodigal Sarah;
  • Chris Evans talks storage architecture;
  • Greg gets his Nexus Galaxy.... but the trip to the store didn’t go well;
  • Ed addresses recent complaints about his language on the show;
  • Chris Evans becomes the official “Speaking in Tech” Ambassador to the UK; and
  • the run-up to Dell Storage Forum and HP Discover in June.

The Megaupload case starts falling apart

  • According to The Register, the case against Kim Dotcom appears to be falling apart because “Megaupload has never been served with papers in the US...” Oh... really?
  • The difference between privacy laws in the US and the UK.
  • Will file-sharing sites like Dropbox and Google Drive be impacted by file-sharing freetards?

All of a sudden software-defined networking (SDN) is the rage... and Cisco is getting kicked in the press.

  • How SDNs are different from traditional networks
  • OpenFlow ecosystems
  • Will virtual networking and SDNs achieve the prominence of server virtualisation ... or will it look more like storage virtualisation?
  • Chris Evans faces down the 10 Big Questions...
