APAC Virtualization Podcast

All things virtualisation in the APAC region

Wanted: new host for APACVirtual Podcast

I hope everyone has had a great start to 2014! The purpose of this post is really to put my hand up to say I’m not able to give my best to APACVirtual anymore with my work commitments and to shout out to the community to hand over the project to someone with fresh enthusiasm and interest.

I’ve finally realised that I’d prefer to do few things half well than lots of things badly and as a result of this I’d like to ask if anyone would be interested in taking over the Podcast?  It would be a shame to see this podcast finish at episode 83.

So before looking forward, let’s look back and bask in some of the highlights of my hosting the podcast: -

  1. VCDX podcast with some great attendees
  2. VSA podcast
  3. vCloud Powered Service Providers
  4. Coverage of various VMworld/vForums/VMUG User Conferences
  5. Virtualisation Podcast Roundup
  6. Engineers Anonymous series, I think these was the best podcasts I did, some great information on being in Presales, an Architect, Evangelist, TechMarketing, Marketeer
  7. SDN & Virtualisation from a Network Engineer
  8. Technology interviews with a number of Vendors
  9. Openstack and Open Compute.

Let me know if you’re interested via twitter @cswaters1 and thanks for listening/participating!

Now is your chance to join the APACVirtual hall of fame previous list of hosts: http://apacvirtual.com/meet-the-hosts/ that include @andreleibovici @DemitasseNZ @Rodos @RomanT Look where they are now!

Episode 82 – APACVirtual / vSoup mashup live at VMworld Barcelona

Episode 82 - APACVirtual / vSoup mashup live at VMworld Barcelona

We tried to organise a live podcast for this episode, but the scheduling gods were against us so it ended up being a pre-recorded affair, apologies!  But it was great finally meeting the guys and getting the chance to criticise with some like minded individuals :-)
vSoup Special Edition #6 What? No Potato?!
In this special VMworld Europe recording, we are joined by Craig Waters from the APAC Virtualization Podcast and our usual VMworld stand-in, Ed Griegson. For once, Christian managed leave Norway and join the party, but this time Ed is missing.

This is decidedly the most ghetto recording we have done; Recorded on Craig’s iPhone connected to Christian’s microphone via Bluetooth with the same microphone connected to Ed G’s Macbook for power. Ed talks via a Skype connection on Christian’s iPhone which in turn is connected to an external speaker.

All of this just because the vBrownbag Crew packed their things together on wednesday. Slackers.

Oh well, enjoy this weird (yes, it´s back) roundtable discussion of all things VMworld, and a few things that are not. Oh wait, why did we need a stand in? Turns out we did not need one, but Ed G is always good fun.”

Check out the guys at vSoup on their podcast over at vSoup.net
