“It would have to be beer, because everybody drinks it.”

- Steve Shelley, vice president modular solutions Asia Pacific, Emerson Network Power

“Rocket Fuel — because we’re not quite sure what’s in it.”

- Anastasios Mangos, chief technology officer, NEC

“Vodka, because it doesn’t put on any weight.”

- Ian Raper, regional vice president Australia and New Zealand, Riverbed Technology

“It would be every alcoholic beverage known to man because the term itself means everything.”

- Duncan Bennet, vice president and managing director ANZ, VMWare

“It’s clearly a rusty nail. It’s that first smooth bit of Drambuie, but every now and then there’s a bite of scotch underneath.”

- David Hanrahan, general manager cloud services, Dimension Data

All possible options the next time you need to liven up a cloud computing presentation.
