Securing Virtual Desktops with Brian Gracely & TheCloudcast.Net

On Thursday, Feb 9th, I drove from RSA HQ in Bedford, MA to EMC HQ in Hopkinton to spend some time with Brian Gracely (Twitter:@bgracely)and do a podcast and whiteboard session on security and virtual desktops.

Brian is the Director of Technology Solutions and Strategy at EMC and one of the co-hosts of TheCloudcast.(NET) along with Aaron Delp. (Twitter:@aarondelp) If you haven’t heard of The Cloudcast you’ve been missing out! It’s a wealth of knowledge sharing with some of the real leaders in the virtualization and cloud space.

This was my second time on The Cloudcast. My first time was as part of a panel at VMworld 2011 where I discussed vCloud and security with Brian, Aaron and VMware’s Chris Colotti, (Twitter:@ccolotti) a vCloud rockstar.

I really enjoy these social media opportunities! I like sharing knowledge but more than that, I like hanging out with people smarter than me. It really raises my game and gets the creative juices flowing!

Out of discussions like this I’ve come up with novel ways to solve problems, opened my eyes to a different way of thinking and even came up with a patent application that I’m hoping to be able to talk about soon.

In our discussion, Brian and I built upon some of the points I made in a previous blog posting on Virtual Desktops and Security. Take a moment to read that and then listen to the audio and check out the video whiteboard.

So, without further adieu, I’d like to redirect you over to our podcast and video on Securing Virtual Desktops and my thoughts on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it and that it helps you in your virtual desktop strategy. If you have questions, reach me on Twitter or send me an email.
