In this week’s episode of the Structure Show, Derrick Harris recounts his big data adventures at a Chicago data mining show and Microsoft’s(s msft) latest open-source project. Hint: It has to do with YARN and Hadoop. And we’ll discuss whether VMware(s vmw) and Amazon(s amzn) are getting cozier, like collaborators if not exactly allies.
Then, brace yourselves, North Bridge Venture Partners partner Paul Santinelli is aboard to provide his take on the software-defined networking segment — including some VMware SDN dirt — and whether anyone can topple Amazon Web Services off its public cloud perch.
If you know Paul (pictured at left), you know that getting an informed, often inflammatory, opinion out of him is about as hard as falling off a log.
Update: And don’t forget to come back next week when our guest will be Greg DeMichillie, director of product management for the Google Cloud Platform. Due to a scheduling faux pas (mine), Nebula CEO (and former NASA CIO) Chris Kemp will be on August 28.
Hosts: Barb Darrow and Derrick Harris
