The Top 8 Cloud Computing Podcasts
8. Deloitte On Cloud
Deloitte’s podcast is hosted by David Linthicum and Mike Kavis, who talk with industry leaders about the latest in cloud technologies, what’s on tap for the cloud, what cloud tools to use, and why.
“David has been at the forefront of analysts urging organizations to take a more rational view of their cloud strategy, especially right now as costs are rising in the public cloud and there’s a lot of turmoil within the VMware customer base. He has identified that the private cloud is now a genuine and cost-efficient option for many organizations and workloads.”
– Andrew Moloney, chief strategy officer at SoftIron, a manufacturer of private cloud infrastructure
7. The Cloudcast
Hosts Aaron Delp and Brian Gracely interview business and technology leaders shaping the computing future. Topics include cloud computing, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.
“I absolutely admire The Cloudcast for being an authentic and independent voice in the dynamic realm of cloud computing. This podcast offers a unique perspective by delving into a diverse array of captivating topics, steering clear of the usual engineering-centric narratives.
“What sets Brian and Aaron apart is their profound understanding of the industry, which enables them to pose insightful questions that spark profound and engaging discussions. The caliber of the distinguished guests they invite to the show further enriches the experience, making complex subjects accessible and truly enlightening. It’s a refreshing and enlightening journey into the world of cloud technology.”

6. Cloud Security Podcast (Google Cloud)
Co-hosts Anton Chuvakin and Timothy Peacock discuss some interesting cloud security subjects with industry experts.
“Anton and company do a great job of picking timely topics, and they can dig into deep tech issues witty and insightfully. For example, recently, they had a couple of episodes on AI. One of these episodes got down in the weeds about how security teams might use large language models daily, what they can and can’t do, the pros and cons, etc.
“Other recent topics included the strategic challenges of a shared security model (DevOps and security) and cloud security’s biggest remediation headaches. It’s a good listen, and I highly recommend it.”
– Dror Kashti is co-founder and CEO of Sweet Security, a provider of a cloud runtime security suite.
5. The Hybrid Cloud Podcast (Unpacked Network)
In this podcast, host Chris Evans talks to vendors and subject matter experts about their products, ideas, and experiences transitioning to a hybrid cloud model.
“Chris has a practitioner’s real experience combined with an analyst’s viewpoint, so he’s able to dig deep when needed but also not get drawn in by vendor or market hype.”
