Jess Frazelle (@jessfraz) of Oxide Computer (@oxidecomputer) spoke with us about hyperscalers (large companies that make their own datacenter server hardware) and podcasts. 

Jess wrote an article about the power efficiency measurements of datacenter servers: Power to the People (ACM Queue August 2020).

The Oxide podcast is available on oxide.computer/podcast as well as your usual podcast apps. Jess particularly recommended the episode with Jonathan Blow.

Oxide is working to make hyperscaler-style hardware available to everyone. Their goal is to open source all their hardware and software: github.com/oxidecomputer. They use the Rust language for much of their development.

Protecting sensitive information: Growing data, regulations and risks
The amount of data organizations hold has exploded — along with the risk it poses. Today’s guest is Very Good Security CEO and co-founder Mahmoud Abdelkader, who wants to solve the problem of sensitive data by removing it from the equation (by replacing it with decoy data). It’s an intriguing idea as having less worry about data security frees resources up to focus on other areas of cybersecurity. Mahmoud talks about the future of data security, how these new solutions do and don’t help with privacy regulations, and what cybersecurity professionals can do to prepare for a future where the amount of data continues to grow every year. – Get your free security awareness toolkit: http://infosecinstitute.com/ncsam2020  – Enter code “cyberwork” to get 30 days of free training with Infosec Skills: https://www.infosecinstitute.com/skills/ – View transcripts and additional episodes: https://www.infosecinstitute.com/podcast Mahmoud Abdelkader is the CEO and co-founder of Very Good Security.
