    Great podcast – I’ve been listening since episode #1. A couple of comments (actually 3) about your guests assertion that hybrid cloud is the most expensive cloud:
    1. I don’t remember (could have missed it because I was multitasking at the time) him citing any sources.
    2. Everything I’ve read says hybrid is the way enterprises are moving. I don’t think enterprises would purposely move in a more expensive direction unless the investment was worth it.
    3. Azure has Azure Stack which is promised to be seamless hybrid. AWS will have some VMware on AWS offering which is promised to be seamless hybrid. Google has ???. The Nutanix offering will NOT be seamless hybrid. My very brief reading of the Nutanix announcement (could be completely wrong here) sounds like yet another cloud management platform and we see how well those are faring in the marketplace.

    Great show – keep up the good work.

    vblather, cant agree more on the three points. Public cloud guys will never accept that theirs is costlier than private or hybrid cloud. I have talked to a few public cloud guys and they never accepted the enterprise view of the cloud.

    And regarding NTNX, I guess the guess didn’t want to let their partner down.
