Project Description

Fourteenth and Final Stop, Denver!

The City and County of Denver is the consolidated city and county that is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. state of Colorado. Denver is located in the South Platte River Valley on the western edge of the High Plains just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The Denver downtown district is immediately east of the confluence of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River, approximately 12 mi (19 km) east of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Denver is named after James W. Denver, a governor of the Kansas Territory. It is nicknamed the Mile High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.344 meters) above sea level. The 105th meridian west of Greenwich, the longitudinal reference for the Mountain Time Zone, passes directly through Denver Union Station.

CTO Advisor Road Trip Interview

Home on the Ranch – Mulicloud Data Repatriation

While much of the conversation has focused on A16z findings around cloud workload repatriation, Joe Onisick of Transformation Continuum reminds us of data gravity and the need to support multi-cloud. As a result, customers are looking to repatriate data from single clouds but to co-locations for better multi-cloud access.

Keith Townsend also discusses the future of Joe’s 120-acre ranch. A nice little unpublished stop to Montana/Wyoming on the CTO Advisor Road Trip.
