Podcast Show Notes: Conversations in the Cloud

The centerpiece of every OTN Architect Day event is a panel discussion the gathers all of the session speakers togehter to respond to questions from the audience. I generally try to record these discussions, usually by stiking my iPad on top of one of the PA speakers, with mixed results. Fortunately, the A/V tech at the venue for the Los Angeles event, held on October 25, 2012, had the necessary gear to get a good-quality recording of the panel discussion. So starting this week the OTN ArchBeat Podcast will feature highlights from those discussions.

    Members of the Architect Day panel respond to an audience question about what happens to traditional IT roles in a cloud environment.

    The panel offers advice and examples in response to an audience question about dealing with mission-critical applications.
  • Listen to Part 3: All Clouds Are Not Equal
    The panel responds to a challenging question about cloud strategy with a discussion of enterprise-grade cloud services.
  • Listen to Part 4: Cloud Security and Auditing
    The last segment in the series is short discussion in response to an audience question about auditing and security in the cloud.
