'Life in the cloud' published on Inside Data Centre Podcast

Watch our recent podcast interview on our perspective of cloud infrastructure in the Inside Data Centre Podcast.

In this episode, Andy Davis and Jurg van Viet cover a number of topics within the datacenter and cloud infrastructure landscape. From starting Aknostic and the evolution of cloud throughout the years, to the impact of cloud and its impact on the datacenter sector.

Jurg and Andy talk about sustainability in the sector and how Aknostic is working on an alternative to the public cloud: a local, sustainable cloud, with a unified measurement for sustainability.

They also touch base with the vibrant cloud community and especially the Kubernetes community. A crucial technology to the evolution of the cloud. But also the power lying with software engineers to make decisions on how to reduce emissions.

Thank you for listening!
