The French Storage Podcast
The French Storage Podcast
Ph. Nicolas
"The French Storage Podcast" (aka TFSP) is about Data, Data Management and Storage. It is owned, hosted and driven by Philippe Nicolas, observer of the storage industry for more than 30 years. As an international podcast, TFSP has the mission to cover the industry as a whole with interviews, debates, round tables and technical talks, and the wish to keep some french aspects and episodes when needed. TFSP publishes a new episode every Friday at 12pm Paris time. You can find all statistics on the TFSP site here. You can contact me on Twitter via @CDP_FST. On TFSP, in addition to new episodes, you can also find all past episodes produced during the USP ("Unleash your storage passion") podcast period between April 2020 and July 2021. As a reminder USP was launched in April 2020 by Yoann Castillo and Philippe Nicolas during the Covid-19 with the idea to unify, discuss and boost the French data storage community.
140 -  Interview with Philipp Reisner, CEO and founder, Linbit
Linbit, a reference in Linux HA and data replication, has participated to the recent IT Press Tour in Lisbon, Portugal, and it was the perfect opportunity to learn more about the standard in data protection for production data. So I decided to make this interview with Philipp Reisner, CEO and founder of the company, a story he started more than 20 years ago when he was a student working in the domain. So I let you imagine the expertise Philipp has developed during that period. We spoke about all, the genesis of the project, the strategy of the company, how product work, Kubernetes of course, go to market and pricing and we conclude by a bit of future directions. A very interesting episode I invite you to discover and listen carefully. Enjoy. Thank you Philipp.
