We just published the third episode of the Unexplored Territory. This time we are talking to Shawn Bass, who is the CTO for the EUC business unit. Shawn talks about various aspects of End User Computing, especially security is a big focus at the moment, aka zero trust. Make sure to listen to the episode, either via the embedded player below, or just add the podcast to your podcast app (google, apple, overcast etc), or spotify, and listen to it that way.
There we go, episode 002 of the Unexplored Territory Podcast was just published. In this episode we talk to Sazzala Reddy. Sazzala is a Chief Technologist at VMware who joined via the Datrium acquisition, where he was the CTO. Before founding Datrium, he was at Dell/EMC, where he came in via the DataDomain acquisition. I think it is fair to say that Sazzala has a heavy data/storage DNA. We discuss Sazzala’s career path, why better is sometimes worse, and we extensively discuss VCDR and the new cloud file system that is being developed. I think it is a very interesting episode and would encourage everyone to give it a listen!
One of my goals for this year was starting the Unexplored Territory Podcast. A podcast however is only relevant when people bother to listen to it, as such I figured I would use my blog to promote the podcast for now. As you can imagine, we are hoping to grow our audience fast, and we can use all the help we can get. If you enjoyed the podcast, make sure to subscribe, like, and share the episode on all social platforms, and preferably with your colleagues and friends. You can find the podcast in your favorite podcast app by searching for “Unexplored Territory, or simply click one of the following links: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Overcast, Stitcher, or Amazon Music.

In this episode, we talk to Kit Colbert. Kit was recently promoted to CTO within VMware. Kit talks about how he started as an intern and managed to find his way through the company to ultimately become the CTO. We also discuss various projects that were introduced at VMworld like Project Monterey, Project Capitola, and Project Santa Cruz. I hope you will enjoy this episode as much as we did recording it.
