Road Trip Stop: Denver

Conversation: Super Cloud

We begin our journey this year in the heard of Denver, talking to Faction Founder Luke Norris about the ride of supercloud and how it delivers capabilities through software consumed as services.  Running on a single hyperscale cloud or spanning multiple clouds, we pick Luke’s brain about the ins and outs of this cloud architecture.

THE CLOUD
NEVER SLEEPS

It’s technically possible to take data one PB of data from AWS to GCP and use GCP AI/ML is technically possible. Luke Norris, Founder of Faction, argues that their service makes it possible. Luke draws out the Faction Data Fabric and explains how this multi-cloud data access isn’t just technically possible but financially possible.

Road Trip Stop: San Jose

Conversation: The BIG Move

We’re cheating a little on this stop, but you can’t blame us. We’re talking to former SAP President, VMware COO, and current Cohesity CEO Sanjay Poonen. This is a follow-up conversation to Keith and Sanjay’s discussion from Road Trip 2021. In this editorial session, Keith asks Sanjay all the questions customer executives want to know, what’s Cohesity, and why did he choose to lead a data management startup.
