Episode 4 – Interview with Nasuni CEO, Andres Rodriguez

Published last year in Storage - 0 Comments

Welcome back to the Tech Fugitives podcast.  Today Kyle and Mark deliver on their promise to bring you in depth interviews with Storage Supplier Execs.  Under the hot lamp for questioning today…. Andres Rodriguez, CEO of Nasuni.  Fresh off of a $38 Million dollar round of funding thru Goldman Sachs,  Andres is clear on his vision and what’s happening in Storage.

Life is Good, When you’re The Most Interesting Man in Storage…

Andres has done more than turn a glass of wine into a beer.  He’s turned his vast experience from the NY Times and elsewhere into a powerhouse storage company.  Consider these highlights:

  • Philosophy has roots from Akamai
  • New approach to iNode structures
  • Kyle has WAFS and Legend of Voltron flashbacks
  • Andres makes bold stability claims…forces The Fugitives to invoke required sacrifices to Problem Management gods.

Finally, Andres’ answer to Mark….No, Nasuni is NOT just the next hill to die on.  You should be dying to listen to The Tech Fugitives, so get started now.

We hope you’ll have a good laugh with us!  Thanks for giving us a listen!

Episode 3 – The Russians are coming, with a FB account and wad of cash

Published last year in Uncategorized - 0 Comments

Welcome back to the Tech Fugitives podcast.  Today Kyle and Mark talk about “Cleaners”, Sharks, Horses, and Pigs, well Bacon….but you get the idea.  Everything tastes better when it’s wrapped in bacon…You’ll see!

Snatch was wrong…It wasn’t zee Germans.  It was zee Russians & Zuck!

 

Now $100 Thousand Dollars is a LOT of money.   But if you’re a Russian intelligence arm, $100K and 470 fake Facebook accounts can stir up a lot of trouble.  Kyle and Mark stir this pot and sprinkle in a sitting US Senator, Russian “Security Software” and a large brick & mortar retailer.  Let it simmer, then serve.

 

The Tech Fugitives also check their credit score at Equifax and discover that we recently purchased land in the Florida Keys and transferred our combined wealth to a Nigerian Prince.  It’s cool though, we’re going to get that money back seven fold!  Despite our good fortune, we will still pick apart the slow response of Equifax after the recent hack.

In a show of good will, The Fugitives provide new marketing strategies to Oracle.  In light of the recent lawsuit brought to them for screwing their sales associates, Kyle and Mark guide Ellison to rock solid strategies for success that don’t involve sucking the livelihood from his staff.

Finally, If you’re wondering what Cloud Computing and Horse Racing have in common….You’ve come to the right place.  Frankly, if you’re with the Tech Fugitives, you’re DEFINITELY in the right place!

We hope you’ll have a good laugh with us!  Thanks for giving us a listen!

Episode 2 – The buffet: All you can eat Oracle, China, OpenStack and Rockets….Let’s blow up Rockets!

Welcome back to the Tech Fugitives podcast.  Today Kyle and Mark talk about exploding rockets, exploding technologies and imploding companies….and of course how it all ties back to The Game of Thrones

The Lannisters…They always pay their debts, but to Oracle?

If the House of Targaryen had a Mad King, Mark wonders if it’s simply because the Seven Kingdom’s IT is too heavily invested in Solaris.  You might be pissed too.  Certainly the 2500 infrastructure employees being let go at Oracle might wish they had a dragon or two.  Nonetheless, Kyle straightens it all out with his wisdom from The Citadel.

The Tech Fugitives also paddle the murky waters of China’s new demand to have access to source code for “security reasons”.  Also,  Amazon…. the cool hill to die on….or…I’m sorry, did you say OpenStack?  Well, It’s your Enterprise….paint yourself into any corner you like.  You should feel free to pick the color

No show is complete without some Elon Musk talk.  But this time, Elon is not just all talk.  He’s blown up rockets, costing hundreds of millions of dollars in investment.  Lesser people might be humbled by this type of failure.  But if you’re Elon Musk, let’s just produce a Rocket Explosion Blooper Video and have a good laugh.

We hope you’ll have a good laugh with us!  Thanks for giving us a listen!
