Podcast: VMworld, HP’s PSG plans, and Apple after Jobs

VMworld posterVMworld this year was all about the shift to the cloud – which is natural for the virtualization software vendor. But how do its partners and customers feel about it?

Regular Podcast contributor Michelle Warren of MW Research was on hand for last week’s VMworld conference in Las Vegas, and joins the show to discuss the event and the mood of the virtualization giant’s channel partners. Plus, we discuss two of the hottest topics in the tech industry today – the potential fate of HP’s Personal Systems Group, and life after Steve Jobs for Apple.

Also on this edition of the podcast:

  • Ian Gallagher, director of collaboration engineering for Cisco Canada discusses the networking vendor’s twin TelePresence setups at tennis events in Toronto and Montreal, and how solution providers can craft the same kind of temporary hook-ups.
  • Greg Tobin of D&H Canada shares his thoughts as the distributor enters its fifth year in Canada and enters a new line of business.
  • David Poelhuber of Zerospam shares the details around Canada’s new anti-spam regulations and what they’ll mean to the channel community.
  • Andy Ingram of Juniper Networks on the company’s data centre strategy and why the data centre is the hotbed for networking competition and innovation.
