Episode 376 - How To Stop Being A Cloud Skeptic (w Melissa Palmer)
IT admins are raised on skepticism and there's an entire security philosophy centered around distrust, right? So, so when you start talking about managed services and what we like in the cloud and what we see in the cloud, you start to run into a lot of IT admins that simply do not like it. And we've invited one.
Melissa Palmer (also known as vMiss) joins us to tell us all about her cloud skepticism and how Azure VMware Solution with Azure NetApp Files helped her see the light about the usefulness of cloud.

Episode 373 - Medical Imaging on Amazon FSxN for NetApp ONTAP
Medical imaging is a prevalent cog in the healthcare industry. Millions of images can be stored in a single location and provide use cases not just in radiology, X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and EKGs, but also for post-op wounds, dermatology and more. Medical imaging is being extended into more use cases, such as digital pathology, where slides are scanned for later analysis. These millions of images have to be stored somewhere, and more and more hospitals are looking toward the cloud to provide that data storage - specifically AWS FSx using NetApp ONTAP storage.
In this episode, Sasha Paegle of AWS and Kim Garriott of NetApp talk about the Amazon FSxN cloud solution for Medical Imaging.
Episode 372 - Jetstream Software And Azure VMware Solutions on Azure NetApp FIles
Jetstream Software offers one of the premiere backup and recovery options for VMware in the cloud and we invited Dennis Bray to tell us all about it. Dennis really knows his stuff, which is why he uses Azure NetApp Files for his customer demos.
We've got a good partnership with NetApp and back to this idea of using cloud based technologies and trying to help with cost efficiency, resource utilization, efficiency and the like. When Azure NetApp Files became available with the Azure VMware solution, then it was natural for us, right? Here's a way now that the customer can scale the storage that they require for this DR, or for just for production for that matter, but we're thinking about DR. They can scale the storage for that private cloud without having to add additional AVS notes, right? So from our perspective, and likely the customer and NetApp's perspective, there's real value here. - Dennis Bray, Jetstream Software
Azure VMware Solution with Azure NetApp Files is a proven cloud solution - a first party service within Microsoft's Azure ecosystem, which is why customers feel secure in using it for their enterprise NAS workloads.
Episode 371 - Azure VMware Solution in the Financial Sector
When dealing with storing data in the cloud, trust becomes a critical component for customers - especially ones in the financial sector. If you can't trust the solution you've chosen, then you'll always be looking over your shoulder. Azure NetApp Files is a proven cloud solution - a first party service within Microsoft's Azure ecosystem, which is why customers feel secure in using it for their enterprise NAS workloads.
In this episode, we talk to a customer (Mark Sahadeo) in that industry about how they're using Azure NetApp Files for their Azure VMware Solution workloads.
