We join <a href="http://www.johnmwills.comJohn in the car as he's driving to pick up his kids and while I have a weird voice from a cold. We start out talking about Amazon EU, launching AWS in Europe. This gets us into a discussion about the geographic importance of cloud computing when it comes to performance and regulation.

This gets us into a recent conversation I had where a vendor had been trying to convince a customer to get into way over-priced cloud computing. Sometimes, on-premise will be just fine, not to mention cheaper.

I bring up a recent write-up by Dave Rosenberg about using cloud and SaaS at one of his past companies, and then John tells us about listening in to the recent Oracle on AWS call. We re-cap the Zoho CloudSQL news as well.

As I was at Cisco C-Scape this week, I go over the cloud and IT related content and impressions I gathered over in San Jose.

Mixed in somewhere here we talk about counter-intutive interview tips like: something they want you tell them the question is confusing because that’s what your job is going to be like.
