Recorded last week, in this episode John and I catch up on the IT management and cloud related news, like:

  • BMC & Cisco: using BladeLogic for the Unified Compute, Mainframe 2.0 thingy. Talk with BMC was all about “model first” approach to virtualization automation which is like what the Puppet guys talk about.
  • Cloudera – packaging for Hadoop, “Cloudera’s Distribution for Hadoop” (RPM); web-based config tool for Hadoop; wants to be a “stand-alone data management company.”
  • Sun Cloud (El Reg coverage, even better detail here) – Hadoop interest. Hosted at Switch Communications in Las Vegas – nice Ashlee Vance piece on them from awhile back.
  • There’s also several rumors we go over: IBM and Sun and some more nutty ones.

Disclosure: IBM, Cloudera, Sun, Groundwork, and others are clients.
