Video Spotlight - EMC's "All About Talent"

I was recently given the opportunity to "speak" to the roughly 4000 Global EMC Systems Engineers through a bi-weekly segment called "All About Talent" put together by EMC Human Resources.  The focus was a quick < 2 minute video spotlight with me talking a little about the "who, what, and why" of The Hot Aisle podcast that myself and Brian Carpenter do on a weekly basis.  Below is a screenshot of the email that was sent out:

I am humbled and proud to be an EMC SE and to be able to have this opportunity to spread the nerd word to all my techies out there.  I hope this helps you get to know me a bit more and gets you excited to listen to The Hot Aisle.

The Hot Aisle – What’s Your Storage Sign? I’m a Torus. with Barak Michener – Episode 43

Barak Michener (@barakmich) Software Engineer for CoreOS (@CoreOSlinux) joins us this week on The Hot Aisle to talk about Torus, their take on the modern distributed storage system. Your hosts Brent Piatti (@BrentPiatti) and Brian Carpenter (@intheDC) break down how Torus approaches software defined storage, why distributed storage is the right fit for containerized workloads, how Torus integrates with things like Kubernetes & VMware, and how GIFEE is the motto at CoreOS (Google Infrastructure for Everyone Else). So slip on those comfy running shoes because we’re about to do a mental marathon that you’ll want to see to the end.
