Cloudwashing: More money for less tech (video)

NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is a week away! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.

At the CloudBeat conference today, we got to catch up with Randy Bias, CTO and co-founder of Cloudscaling.

Bias works with large enterprises and telecoms on cloud solutions for massive-scale applications — they call their products “the world’s largest clouds,” in fact.

So he knows a thing or two about what holds water in his industry and what doesn’t. In this brief interview, we chat about “cloudwashing,” the practice of applying an expensive-sounding “cloud” sticker to a run-of-the-mill technology.

Stay tuned for lots more from CloudBeat today and tomorrow.
