The Hot Aisle – Platform 3, Are you doing it wrong? with Randy Bias – Episode 13
The Hot Aisle is hosted by Brent Piatti (@brentpiatti) and Brian Carpenter (@intheDC). Joining us this Episode is Randy Bias (@randybias), VP of Technology for EMC in their Emerging Technology Division and Director in the OpenStack Foundation. Randy helps us navigate through our questions on how customers are either starting out in Platform 3 or Mode 2 architectures, as well as how those who still have Platform 2 / Mode 1 are either trying to straddle both worlds. There are certainly right and wrong ways to accomplish these objectives as an Enterprise, which asks the question: “Platform 3, are you doing it wrong?”. We discuss Randy’s participation in multiple different boards and advisory roles, his start into OpenStack (as well as how he got Mirantis started!), and what he’s been tasked to do at EMC after his company CloudScaling was acquired last year.
