The Cloudcast #117 - OpenStack API Deep Dive

Topic 1 - It’s been a while since you were on last. How has the transition from Enstratius to Dell been? How is the Multi-Cloud Manager business changes since you’re at Dell?

Topic 2 - You’re talking at OpenStack Summit about APIs across multiple clouds. What are the highlights of that talk? 

Topic 3 - Whether OpenStack should adopt AWS APIs has made some noise over the past few months, due to people like Randy Bias and Simon Wardley. Where do you stand on that issue, and it is the right issue for OpenStack to be concerned with?

Topic 4 - Now that VMware has a public cloud offering (that’s out of beta), has your opinion of VMware changed at all? 

Topic 5 - You’ve been outspoken about companies that try and classify themselves as “Enterprise Cloud”. You wrote a book about how to design applications for cloud - how well do you see Enterprise companies understanding this (and not needing traditional Enterprise capabilities)?

Topic 6 - You’re never one to hold back opinions. What are your bold predictions for 2014?
