Virtualization & Cloud Podcast Directory

Virtualization Cloud Podcast Directory

UPDATE: Please bookmark and visit the ‘ Tech Podcast Directory’ at the top of the page, I will be updating this going forward with all the latest podcast listings. 

Here are a list of popular virtualization, Cloud and tech related podcasts, many of which I try and listen to on a regular basis as they provide an effective way of keeping on top of what it happening in the industry, particularly in the areas of virtualization and Cloud.  How much time I get listen to podcasts is usually determined with how much travel I’m doing in the car or train to and from the office.

Over the past couple of years podcasts have come and gone though there are a few that have, and continue to, endure the test of time.  As this is a resource that could prove useful for future reference I will give this Virtualization and Cloud podcast directory its own menu at the top of the TechHead page.  Check back there regularly for updates.

If there are any podcasts that I have missed that you think worthy of inclusion then please let me know in the comments section below and I’ll get them added.  Happy Listening!

    Hey dude! Thanks for the shoutout to the Cloudcast (.net). Hope you’re doing well mate!

    • http://techhead.co/ Simon Seagrave (TechHead)

      My pleasure! Glad to give credit where credit is due. I appreciate the great job both you and Brian do in pulling together the Cloudcast. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Simon, a couple others for your list: vCatchup, AdaptingIT, vBrownbags & geek whisperers. It’s more network related but PacketPushers is another one. There is also the PowerShell podcast (I don’t listen to that one, though I hear it’s good). And, whatever happened to DataCenter Insiders?

    • http://techhead.co/ Simon Seagrave (TechHead)

      Hi GS,
      Apologies for the delay in replying. It is currently pre-EMC World madness where every waking hour is dedicate to pre-show meetings and work. :)

      Some great suggestions there – thank you!

      I’ll get them added.

      Hope to catchup again soon,

      Simon

    What ? No networking podcasts ?

    Criminal. Should have Packet Pushers Podcast on the list!

    • http://techhead.co/ Simon Seagrave (TechHead)

      That is a crime! I will add a dedicated section. :)

      Thanks for pointing this out.

      Cheers,

      Simon
