My interview with Amazon CTO Dr Werner Vogels

He may not have meant intended it, but if anyone deserves the title of ‘The Father of Cloud Computing’ it ought to be Amazon’s chief technology officer Dr Werner Vogels (although’s Marc Benioff could mount an honest challenge). It was through expanding Amazon’s services to provide the platform for powering other online businesses that the concept of public cloud computing became a viable business, with other companies able to build entire systems and applications on top of Amazon Web Services with an unprecedented level of freedom. Dr Vogels was in Australia early in April and I was fortunate to be able to interview him for the Fourth Estate Domain. You can see the video of that interview here, thanks to Viocorp.
