While I was in Las Vegas a few weeks ago I took the opportunity to sit down with Alex Williams, Cloud editor of Silicon Angle, and Stu Miniman from Wikibon, to film a video interview. The interview cam at an interesting time – in the space of 24 hours we’d seen some large Cloud-related announcements from HP, from Microsoft and from Oracle – these announcements spanned the continuum from revolutionary at one end, to a rehash of existing stuff at the other.

During the interview we talked about a bunch of different things relating to cloud – from Larry Ellison’s cloudwashing to the rise of big data. From cloud education to the reality that a huge number of existing applications will continue to run on-premise for the foreseeable future.

Always fun to sit down and chat with Alex – enjoy the video and let me know your thoughts.
