Listen to What Works – Audio Podcasts Featuring Runecast

Whether your IT infrastructure is running as a fully on-premises data center, in hybrid cloud, or full-on public cloud, business continuity is critical.

From time to time, our in-house technology industry experts get featured in audio interviews for podcasts that focus on virtualization news and other new technologies for ensuring business agility.

For IT environments running AWS, Microsoft Azure, Kubernetes, VMware vSphere or VMware Cloud on AWS, the answer for this is simple: Runecast Analyzer. But then, we are a little biased. ;)

Interview (by ActualTech Media) with Runecast CEO Stanimir Markov @ AWS re:Invent

Released January 2020

Stanimir Markov (CEO of Runecast and VCDX #74) spoke live with ActualTech Media at AWS re:Invent conference about the latest features within Runecast Analyzer.

Runecast Analyzer had just launched Amazon Web Sevices (AWS) hybrid cloud insights to help sysadmins with their transition from the private to hybrid cloud.

Runecast made its name by providing the most benefits and enhanced ROI for VMware-based environments. To support companies on their path to hybrid cloud migration, Amazon Web Services (AWS) analysis was added for helping IT teams to address issues. Despite providing transparency for the hybrid cloud, Runecast operates fully on-premises, with no data shared outside the environment.
