The Data Stack – January Podcasts

In January, Chip Chat covered the “Powered by Intel Cloud Technology” launch, a program designed to let end users know about the infrastructure and technologies in their public cloud instance. We also began archiving HP Discover episodes, with a check-in on the state of security in the enterprise.
