unikernels and unik with Scott Weiss

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/unik_edited_fixed.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download The Linux kernel of many popular operating system distributions contains 200-500 million lines of code.

OpenStack and the Future of Cloud Computing with John Purrier

http://traffic.libsyn.com/sedaily/Openstack_Edited.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | Download “Why do we need any open source versions of proprietary implementations? I would argue that first of all, it’s just good for industry and the ecosystem.” Cloud service providers like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft provide both infrastructure as a service and platform as a service. Infrastructure as a service gives developers access to virtual machines, servers, and network infrastructure. Platform as a service

Competition in the Open Source Ecosystem

From Eric Sammer’s answer via Quora: At Cloudera (company) we regularly work on open source code right along side our competitors. I tend to joke that the engineers at our competitors are effectively our coworkers. Since the question specifically asks about how one deals with code (rather than the working relationship) I’ll focus on that. Honestly though, that’s probably the less interesting part. In (almost) all ways, our engineers shed their
