Mike Coleman
Technology Evangelist, Docker

Interview Overview: Uniting Containers and VMs to Answer Specific Use Cases
Mike Coleman, technology evangelist at Docker Inc., stopped by theCUBE and talked with Stu Miniman (@stu) about how many users are trying to determine whether containers or virtual machines are better for their purposes. “You may not have the quantity of workload it takes to natively drive the utilization you need to make your hardware affordable if you’re just running containers,” Coleman noted. “We’re in the early days, the early stages. Being able to put some containers next to some traditional VMs, to maximize resource capabilities, is a big use case. The other one is around some of the functionality in existing toolsets.” Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.

CMO, Igneous Systems

Interview Overview: Is the Answer to Exploding Sensor Data a Public Cloud Mimic on Premise?
Steve Pao, MO of Igneous Systems Inc., stopped by theCUBE and talked with Stu Miniman (@stu) about the scramble to secure huge data streams inundating enterprises from new sources like sensors and IoT. “Everybody’s hitting this juncture, because the data’s growing faster than the [IT] budget,” said Pao. He also said that data from sources like streaming video feeds, microscopy and others require changes to storage technology at a deep layer. “As we’re looking at these very, very different datasets, we’re looking at very, very different kinds of computing, and what that requires is a very, very different kind of infrastructure,” he said.
