Cloudera in The Cube with Silicon Angle TV at Strata Conference 2011

The consensus from the Cloudera attendees of the O’Reilly Strata Conference last week was that the data-focused conference was nearly pitch perfect for the data scientist, practitioners and enthusiast who attended the event. It was filled with educational and sometimes entertaining sessions, provided ample time for mingling with vendors and attendees and was well run in general.

One of the cool activities happening at the conference was live streaming video brought to us from the good folks at SiliconAngle. Using a mobile production system called The Cube, Silicon Angle hosts John Furrier (@furrier) and Dave Vellante interviewed industry luminaries and up and comers while bringing their own perspective. After streaming live for nearly two days these hosts are still able to keep the energy high and the tone light.

In the interviews below John and Dave interview Amr Awadallah, CTO and Co-Founder of Cloudera (@awadallah), and John Kreisa, VP Marketing at Cloudera (@marked_man); followed by a John and Dave interview with Sarah Sproehnle director of education at Cloudera. During the interviews they cover many different aspects of Cloudera and Apache Hadoop.
