Hosted by Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela. This week Sarah is out while Ed and Greg are joined by special guest Sam Johnston, director of cloud and IT Services at Equinix. Join us for a discussion on the joys of European air travel, Equinix's deal with Hitachi Data Systems, Amazon's next steps after yet more losses (moving from the end point to the middleman), and Microsoft's ("insane") billion dollar estimate for establishing a presence in the clouds.
