Allyson and Reuven are finally reunited this week for a new episode with a couple of great guests. First up, Michael Crandell (@michaelcrandell), the CEO of RightScale stops by to talk about cloud management in the cloud environment and bridging services (servers/network/storage) to run applications. He also weighs in on the PaaS vs. IaaS debate. Then Dave McCrory (@mccrory), the CTO of Basho, discusses distributed database technology and also the concept of Data Gravity – thinking about data as if it were a planet that builds mass and attracts additional Services and Applications. When data is large enough, it’s virtually impossible to move.

With Allyson on sabbatical and Ruv on the road, we’re pulling a couple of our “best of” episodes from the archive. This week we’re re-posting Harper Reed (@harper), the CTO of Obama for America, who stopped by the show in March 2013 to talk about big data and utilizing technology (smartphones, Websites, social media) to engage voters. He and his team received tremendous credit for helping win the election through use of scalable cloud infrastructure (Amazon Web Services*) combined with a cutting edge big data engine that helped pinpoint everything from ad buys to volunteer engagement.  It’s a great test case for how technology is transforming society.
