Day Two Cloud 086: AWS Succession – Ham Sandwich Edition

This week’s episode of Day Two Cloud is an open discussion between me, Drew Conry-Murray, and Ethan Banks regarding the successor to Andy Jassy as AWS CEO. Drew had made an off-hand comment suggesting that Amazon could put a ham sandwich in charge of AWS and it would still perform just as well. I challenged Drew to argue his point, and Ethan took up the counterpoint. It’s a lively discussion and I highly recommend giving it a listen.

Cloud Field Day – VMware

I will be a delegate for Cloud Field Day 5 on April 10-12. During the event we will be attending presentations from several vendors, which will be livestreamed. Before I leave on this grand adventure, I wanted to familiarize myself with each of the presenters and consider how their product/solution integrates with cloud computing. I’m also interested to hear from you about what questions you might have for each vendor, or topics you’d like me to bring up.

Day Two Cloud Podcast Launched

In case you didn’t notice, the Day Two Cloud podcast has officially launched! Big thanks to Tim Warner and Kenny Lowe for being the guests in the first two episodes! There is a lot more great content coming. I’ve got ten more episodes already recorded, and two more scheduled. If I stick to a fortnightly schedule for publishing, that should take me through July. That is pretty ridiculous!!! Needless to say that I am already considering moving to a weekly schedule.

I’ve had a few people ask me about where the podcast is hosted, what topics I might be interested in, and what my process is for publishing. The process for recording and publishing is a whole post unto itself, but I can address the other two topics here.
