    Data Protection Software Doesn’t Solve Ransomware Issues

    The rise of massive ransomware outbreaks has led to a number of strategy changes, including the pivot of disaster recovery and business continuity companies into marketing their solutions as an effective way to stop ransomware. But are these products really going to solve the issue? Or just treat the symptoms of the wider problem?

    You Need To Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone If You Want To Learn

    You Need To Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone If You Want To Learn

    Techies are inherently curious, and magic happens when they step outside their area of expertise and really dig into something new. That’s what we’re talking about this week on the On-Premise IT Roundtable with a set of delegates from Tech Field Day 24. We’re mixing disciplines and breaking down the walls between industry verticals and learning about everything from IoT to storage to container management to smart networking. When we see things we don’t know, we can spot novel approaches and try to bring them to our own realm.

    Will Working From Anywhere Destroy Enterprise IT?

    Will Working From Anywhere Destroy Enterprise IT?

    With a hybrid work model now a reality for a growing number of enterprise employees, IT departments are now rethinking the way they deploy their resources. One of the big questions is what happens during the next upgrade cycle. Are IT budgets going to be cut? Do we need full-featured devices in an office no one is going to visit? Should that spending be shifted to the end users or to cloud services? Will working from anywhere be the end of enterprise IT?

    Service Mesh Is a Use in Search of a Problem

    Service Mesh Is a Use in Search of a Problem

    Today, it seems like every cloud vendor is pitching a service mesh, but is this really necessary? In this episode, Calvin Hendryx-Parker, Ned Bellavance, and Jason Benedicic join Stephen Foskett to discuss the value of a service mesh to modern application stacks. In theory, a service mesh facilitates communication between services and microservices in modern applications. It also provides a data and management plane to today’s scalable applications and can improve security and flexibility. But a service mesh is built of proxies, and this adds multiple layers of complexity to already-complex containerized application platforms. Before companies deploy a service mesh, they should consider whether the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.

    Hype and Reality Are Not Related

    Hype and Reality Are Not Related

    The history of information technology is bound up with hype. In this discussion, Tech Field Day 24 delegates Paul Stringfellow, Robert Novak, and Craig Rodgers discuss the endless parade of hype with Stephen Foskett. Whether it’s 5G or edge or disaggregated infrastructure or the cloud, every technology goes through a wave of hype before it becomes reality. How can we tell what a technology will really deliver and what’s just marketing talk? The famous Gartner Hype Cycle is more about marketing than the reality of technology adoption, and a product can be good or bad regardless of the amount of hype surrounding it. That’s one thing the delegates are watching for during the Field Day events! Amazingly, hype can even be productive in pushing change and adoption of new concepts, and even product development to meet these inflated expectations.

What’s the Premises of this show?!

I’ve listened to this show many times and even participated on it as a guest and find it to be really enjoyable. It’s pretty hard hitting and digs into the depth of some topics that other podcasts, blogs and media just tend to not cover at all! Love it!

TracerX-1 ,

Great!

Really like the podcast info related to off and on-premises cloud info. Grammar nerd alert....it's "on premises", not "on premise". :-)

Kidsmeller ,

Fresh

The intro voice reminds me of Chris Parnell in Hot Rod. So AM radio! So fresh & so clean! Great choice, and keeping it very hip while keeping up with the IT community.
