Adrian Cockcroft (@adrianco), director of architecture for cloud systems at Netflix, joins us from the Google I/O conference and chats about his Google Glasses and also an interesting announcement on charging by the minute for Google’s IaaS platform. He also discusses how Netflix built their massive cloud architecture, how they test the Netflix cloud, and the recently launched $100,000 prize from Netflix for developers who can improve on the company’s open source tools. Our second guest is John Cowan (@cownet), the co-founder and CEO of 6fusion which offers a utility-metered cloud computing platform that enables organizations and IT services providers to access to a federated network of IaaS providers. The foundation of the platform is the Workload Allocation Cube (WAC), which creates a commercial standard to quantify supply and demand for compute resources.
