Before we get started,
Aaron and Brian always do a few checklists to make sure we’re on format
and haven’t forgotten anything. Lets run through the Dell checklist:

We talk about the breadth of Dell Cloud and Big Data offerings and how
they have quietly put together a portfolio that appears to play in
almost every element of these markets.

We discussed the history of the Data Center Solution team having built
some of the largest Clouds in the world (Yahoo, Microsoft, Joyent), and
how that experience has helped them develop tools like Crowbar.

We talked about the progress that OpenStack has made over the past 12-18
months and how it's different from other open-source clouds because of
it's "community" nature.

We discussed why Big Data solutions such as Hadoop are starting to gain
traction with customers.

[NOTE: We didn't cover Big Data enough, so we'll dedicate another show to that soon]

We learned about the history of Crowbar and how it is quickly being
adopted by various Cloud projects (Cloud Foundry, Dreamhost-CEHF,
OpenStack and others)
