Join Larry Jordan and Michael Horton as they talk with:

Jim Sherhart Senior Director, Product Marketing, Drobo

Drobo first became known for its friendly, expandable, RAID-protected storage. Now, they are creating an ecosystem of applications revolving around storage and the Cloud. Jim Sherhart, Senior Director of Product Marketing and Business Development, joins us to talk about the new storage applications that Drobo is making available as well as what new storage products Drobo is working on.

Lisa Contoyannis, VP of E-commerce, Pogoplug

An example of one of these new Drobo applications is Pogoplug. They have created a cloud-storage system for mobile devices – what they call the “Personal Cloud.” And they just partnered with Drobo to provide cloud-based storage for remote file access, cloud storage and media streaming from any device. Lisa Contoyannis, VP of E-commerce, joins us to explain how their system works.

Ned Soltz, Contributing Editor, Government Video and Digital Video magazines

Ned Soltz is a regular contributor to The Buzz, as well as being an contributing editor to both Government Video and Digital Video magazines. This week, we want to chat with him about some of the new digital video recorders that recently appeared, such as the Samurai and Pix. Plus, when it comes to talking tech, nobody does a better job than Ned.
