L8ist Sh9y Podcast
From Rob Hirschfeld’s post on this newly launched podcast:
We feel there’s still room for deep discussions specifically around automated IT Operations in cloud, data center and edge; consequently, we’re branching out to start including deep interviews in addition to our initial stable of IT Ops deep technical topics like Terraform, Edge Computing, Gartner Symposium review, Kubernetes and, of course, our own Digital Rebar.
This past week our guest was Mark Thiele of Apcera where we covered Mark’s thought on why public cloud will be under 20% of IT and culture issues head on.
