The Cloud Episode 1: Featuring Amon Prasad, CEO and Founder of Network Remedy
Dear Cloud Curious folks,
Hello there, Aaron Mangal here, host of The Cloud Radio show and I wanted to thank you for your interest in The Cloud and Network Remedy.
We are very excited to bring you this production in an effort to increase your understanding of IT services and The Cloud.
Network Remedy is the sponsor of The Cloud and was recently voted as a Top 20 Virtualization Company in Silicon Valley by CIO Review Magazine.
They have 15+ years of CIO-level IT Consulting, Cloud Hosting and Managed IT Services for small to midsize business, non-profits and government agencies.
Here’s a quick breakdown of what to expect: Network Remedy Radio is an overarching umbrella of Tech Media for free public access. We will be interviewing various subject matter experts to have a well-rounded discussion and learning experience for all.
Why? Educating the public and especially our clients is a huge priority to us which is why we have invested significant resources to make The Cloud and other Tech Media related content available.
What is The Cloud Show?
The Cloud is a series under Network Remedy Radio that has emerged in partnership with Paul Roberts, the brains behind OC Talk Radio which is hosted in a live studio, in Costa Mesa in Orange County. He is also a regular co-host of The Cloud, acting as the voice of the curious common man.
In addition to the studio, we will be podcasting at events and in person, separate from OC Talk Radio so I just wanted you to be aware of our formats.
We hope you enjoy The Cloud and our other content to come under Network Remedy Radio. Please do not hesitate to give us your honest feedback, questions, and concerns.
In this episode, we interviewed Amon Prasad, CEO and founder of Network Remedy. We discuss why we’re doing this show, some basic concepts of the Cloud and how Network Remedy delivers value to its clients.
