Gonzo Video: Forklift Ready Infrastructure, Database Market Opens, Show Me the Money

I hope you have been enjoying the Opinionated Infrastructure series over the last week or so – I have been exploring what’s going on in the world of big data and integrated systems in a video series sponsored by IBM. The first few shows came out well, but my partner in crime, uh, Benny Crime is more than capable of being a little gonzo. Me too, I guess. So anyway, I would just like to share 3 videos that we made that hopefully have an enjoyable immediacy. The last in particular… well, watch it.

So here I talk about the database market and the current disruption we’re seeing, with in memory computing meeting open source to create new challenges for the incumbent- Oracle.

Or the need to offer servers you can load on a truck and deliver to a data center as pre-integrated modular building blocks.

And finally, the green screen episode, looking at industry economic models, data, integrated systems – show me the value. The Stack is So Money: Age of Data.

This series was sponsored by IBM PureSystems. We’re running a Google Hangout to talk about opinionated infrastructure tomorrow, Wednesday October 3rd. You should check it out.

  1. Isn’t the reason Oracle is hard to displace by the likes of IBM may have something to do with its developer-centric approach. On a local level, Oracle holds and sponsors many DBA user groups. What is the IBM or Sybase equivalent?

    • hey james. you say developer centric, then say it runs DBA events. two very different constituencies… 🙂 but your point is well made nonetheless- the historical focus on practitioners is salutary.
