Facemelting w/Chad Sakac Pt.1 - The CTO Advisor Podcast 088

We finally got Chad Sakac on the podcast. It only took Chad taking a role at Pivotal to get him on. As with his blog, Chad can run a little long so we split the conversation into two episodes. The first episode focuses on the growth and customer demand for HCI.
