We go deeply technical today and discover the wonders of Virtual machines. What are they and why do we compare them to holographic characters in Star Trek ? We talk about the secret sauce to build a ‘Datacenter in a Box’ for your home. Instead of owning rows of old clunkers to test, or half a server rack to meet your needs, we take a tour of Virtualbox and how you can use it to shove an entire datacenter… under your desk.
You can also watch the Live recording of this show on Youtube.

We start off season 8 with a great topic on Cross platform security. Many of us think that we are safe from mall ware or viruses because we don’t use vulnerable operating systems. Good friend of the show Emmet Steward is here to tell us, that this is not the case. We talk about cross-platform security hazards and, more importantly, how to protect your system and be safe.
Emmet also talks about a great course called ‘Hackitplus’ where you can enrol to be a white hat hacker and learn all about penetration testing, security and … ethical hacking.
We also have Konrad Dwojaks weekly photography tip : This time on keeping your gear safe in cold weather.
All in all : a great show to kick off season 8 of Knightwise.com
