There are a lot of interesting people working on private cloud technology like Nutanix . In this episode, Tony Allen ( @tallen ) sits down with Michael Webster ( @vcdxnz001 ), NPX 007 and Global Manager of Business Critical Apps for Nutanix. Together they taste craft beers and discuss Flash technology, reducing datacenter complexity typically associated with three-tier architecture, and what movies not to show your children.
