Prasanna and Curtis wax philisophical at the end of 2020, and try to predict what they think will happen next year. We look forward to the end of 2020 (don’t we all?) and look with a positive outlook to 2021. We talk about the vaccine, and what it’s going to be like getting back to work, and whether or not there will be a new normal there that’s not like what it was. We talk about SaaS products and their prevalence, as well as the emergence of a number of backup products based on Kubernetes. 2020 has been quite the year; let’s hope 2021 is better.
