Last week I had the opportunity to interview John Engates, CTO of Rackspace after his appearance on the Cloud Supersession at HITEC in Austin, TX. In the interview we cover a topics such as:
- Compare and contrast Cloud v. Virtualization strategies
- Advice for customers struggling with how to justify ROI for the cloud when they have existing infrastructure investments
- Security in the cloud
- OpenStack for private and hybrid clouds
The cloud computing “supersession” was moderated by Horseshoe Bay Resort CIO, Lyle Worthington and featured Infor’s Senior Vice President of R&D Javier Buzzalino, PAR Springer-Miller President and CEO Larry Hall and Charles Henderson, Trustwave’s Director of Application Security Services in addition to Engates.
