    Tech Talk on the SoftwareONE Radio Network - Hyper-Convergence and SDDC

    in Technology

    Hyper-Convergence is defined by the virtualization of compute, network, storage technologies thus allowing logical objects to reside on any compatible hardware regardless of location. The Software Defined Data Center focuses on the end user solution and the process of providing these solutions in a Hyper-Converged Infrastructure. The modern data center is no longer restricted by brick and mortar walls.


    For years, IT has used abstraction to create a commoditization of our infrastructure.  Now there are formal names and products that take the commoditization to the next level. As hyper-convergence and the software defined data center begin the journey of maturing to the point where early adopters now have stories to tell, we can explore tool sets and best practices of expanding your data center beyond the four walls of your data centers.


    Tune in on February 3rd as we discuss this trend and all the software companies that are working to support the modern data center. And don't forget to call in to ask a question or make a comment on the air and get an Amazon Gift Card at (347) 637-1009

    This month, John recaps his December 2012 conversation with HeatherAsh Amara as they discuss her book "The Toltec Path of Transformation". HeatherAsh and John will talk about "re-crafting the self". Beginning in 1994, HeatherAsh apprenticed with and taught extensively with don Miguel Ruiz, author of "The Four Agreements", and in 2001, she founded the Toltec Center of Creative Intent. HeatherAsh's writings and teachings are a rich blend of Toltec wisdom, European shamanism, Buddhism, and Native American ceremony.


    John will also share his discoveries about "going to his left" and living a defensive life, that he encountered by exploring the Qua through dance and QiGong. He'll also share reflections on being where you are, and communing with the West.

    This month, John is in Spirited Conversation with Charles Randall Paul, founder of the Foundation for Religious Diplomacy and chairman of The World Table. John and Randall discuss Randall's work and perspectives in cultivating conversations between people with fundamentally conflicting views on deeply held, even sacred, beliefs. Not just restricted to religion, this challenge is in our politics, our communities, even in our families and intimate relationships. How does one navigate these challenging waters? Perhaps a new understanding of Love is called for. (Full disclosure: John is also affiliated with The World Table.)


    John challenges his co-hosts Mildred Lynn McDonald and HiC Luttmers with this very thing - a different definition of love that willingly encourages - even desires - to be influenced by another. "Love they Enemy", anyone?

Making the mystical accessible to the scientific-minded, and bringing the language of science to the Mystery, John brings provocative, new perspectives to living, learning, healing, and discovery.


    In today's program, John is in Spirited Conversation with Kimberly Walters, a doctoral candidate at the Univeristy of Chicago and faculty member at University of California, Irvine. Kimberly has done ethnographic studies in Southern India, investigating the cultural interplay between sex workers and the NGOs seeking to "rescue" them. The facts on the ground belie easy conclusions, and what seems like freedom might be exploitation of a different kind.


    In his Reflections segment, John shares his encounter with Fly Medicine - an uncomfortable but ultimately healing journey into powerful and ubiquitous support that we ignore at our own risk, finding within it a tool for addressing old, deep, and stubborn wounds.


    John is also joined by his co-hosts HiC Luttmers and Mildred Lynn McDonald in a Firefly Willows L*I*V*E! roundtable about games, inspired by Jane McGonigals potent TED talks.
