Clouded Judgment: Part 1 | ExtraHop


Since moving from heading ExtraHop's Professional Services team to leading our cloud strategy, I've been doing a whole lot more of two things:

  • Fielding questions about cloud: platforms, products, migrations, security, economics.
  • Wearing a suit and talking on camera.

I found myself getting many of the same questions about the cloud from security and IT professionals: What is the cloud? How should I go about migrating? What does moving to a public cloud provider mean for my budget and my company's finances? How secure is the cloud?

Given how often these topics come up, I asked my colleagues to put together a list of questions for me to answer on camera. They pitched, I batted.

(Most of the questions were great! Some were bad. They were really interested in my suit. Suits are hilarious to Seattleites? I don't know.)

The result was a series of short videos that distill my experience working with cloud providers and customers. Be sure to stick around for the not-embarrassing-at-all outtakes at the end of each video...

We'll be posting the series of four videos over the coming weeks, including the first installment below. Enjoy!
