The Last Episode

I vowed long ago that I would never just pod fad. I would let you know when it was over. Well, it is over. This is the final episode of the Linux User Podcast. I am unemployed and need to concentrate on finding a job. This is probably a permenant good bye to the Linux User Podcast. I may podcast again next year, but if I do it will be spiritual in nature. I will keep the website up and running for as long as I can. The next hosting bill is due in December 2009. If I can make that, the site should be up for another 6 months after that. Right now the funds are very low, so we will see how it goes. Please remember my family and me in your prayers. Thank you, God bless, and good bye.

FEEDBACK: Thank you Jess, Steven, Clyde, Brian for your emails.

In this episode of the Linux User Podcast Allan Emord discusses Cloud Computing and Eucalyptus. Allan Emord is a System Administrator for the city of Albuquerque. In this episode Allan points out that there is a lot of opinion and speculation about cloud computing. There is also a lot of disagreement about what it actually is. Allan discusses these and gives you what he believes is a pretty good definition. He also discusses some of the security issues involved in cloud computing. He then takes on the subject of Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is an open-source infrastructure for the implementation of cloud computing on computer clusters. Ubuntu has been actively involved in the project.
