Take a Network Break! On this week’s episode we’re joined by network architect and author Russ White.
We continue our public cloud analysis with a focus on music streaming service Spotify, which announced a move to Google Cloud Platform. We debate whether business or technology decisions drove the move, and examine Google’s reputation for killing products.
We scope out a rumor that Cisco may be partnering to launch a hyperconverged product, and get creeped out by big data efforts to track and direct employee health.
Apple fires back at the FBI with its own motion in court to counter the FBI’s order, VMware exec Martin Casado departs for storied VC firm Andreessen Horowitz, and EMC makes a curious move into NFV.
We wrap up with a lighting-round review of news and financial reporting from Mellanox, Infoblox, and Palo Alto Networks.
