Edge and the cloud–shaping the future of IT


Join host Mike Kavis and guest Rob Hirschfeld, founder and CEO of RackN, as they discuss edge computing—taking a deep dive into how edge computing works, applications of edge technologies for business issues, how it’s changing the IT infrastructure and how it’s complementing the cloud computing landscape. They also take a look at the future of edge computing and how it will revolutionize both IT and industry.

Rob Hirschfeld is CEO and co-founder of RackN, leaders in physical and hybrid DevOps software. He has been in the cloud and infrastructure space for nearly 15 years from working with early ESX Betas to serving four terms on the OpenStack Foundation Board and becoming an Execute at Dell. As a co-founder of the Digital Rebar project, Rob is creating a new generation of DevOps orchestration to leverage the containers and service-oriented ops.
