Xtreme Podcast: My network neighborhood looks different from the cloud

Welcome to this week’s installment of the Xtreme Minute. This is our weekly rundown of the TechGenix Xtreme Podcast with Louise Chalupiak and Peter King. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoy reading and discussing the week’s hot tech topics.

The podcast starts off with a discussion about an article from Mitch Tulloch: The challenges of supporting MAC computers in a workplace. We do seem to exist in a predominantly Windows enterprise world, but not all organizations subscribe to this preference and some even boast a cost reduction when moving to Mac technology. Mitch investigates the risks and issues to be aware of if you are considering this radical change.

Second up we go to a couple of articles submitted by Amy Babinchak. The first is titled Rethinking network design when there’s no longer a server. Amy uses the transition to the cloud as a teaching moment as she takes our current understanding of network architecture and maps it to the new world. We also discuss Amy’s article titled, Surprising places where your Microsoft Teams data is stored. We are all aware that finding data is no easy feat and it’s most likely no surprise to anyone that this just became more challenging considering the recent migration to Microsoft Teams. Fear no more! Amy provides a quick summary of each function and where one can go to locate that elusive data.

The final article we discuss is from Brien Posey, From Alexa toilets to porn-star experience: The ‘WTF’ side of CES. (Why we did not discuss the porn-star experience will forever remain a mystery.) While we do agree that much of this “WTF” technology will never find its way into the mainstream market, the technology behind it could potentially be the start of the next big thing.
