The OrionX Download™ Podcast
Big Ideas. Simplified.
Join us as Dan Olds, Shahin Khan, and guests discuss big ideas across technology topics and share insights and revelations that can impact your investment decisions and change the technology options you might consider.
Here at OrionX.net, we are fortunate to work with many tech leaders in nearly every part of the “stack”, from chips to apps. Doing this for many years has given us a unique perspective. The OrionX Download podcast/slidecast brings you the essence of that perspective.

They discuss changes to the TOP500, New server chips (POWER and ARM), Liquid Cooling, and Quantum Computing. Also discussed: Y2Q, Quantum Supremacy, and Quantum-Safe cryptography.

Cost of Data and How to Avoid Data Loss
Brian Hellman from LINBIT joins as the guest of Dan Olds and Shahin Khan to discuss our recent blog and research paper, The Cost of Data Loss and How to Avoid It.

In this podcast, the team looks at consequences of data loss, cost categories of data, and available solutions to prevent data loss.
