Virtual India with ESX: Mass commoditization soon to reach critical mass?



I really don't think virtualization is for only nations and organizations that face problems due to escalating costs. So its not just for the US and Europe. We are past that phase. It's time to see virtualization as the shape of things to come.

I think a solid strategy and a very fast , effective, planned (in phases, does not need to be baby steps though,) will definitely attract our Indian couterparts to adopt it as a pretty regular thing to have. They need to get started as well. Its about time!

I will be adressing (and participating) in a congress here in the North of holland. Some key players will be participating as well. We also plan to invite VMware, MS , Xen folks. I agree partly with Hunter here...


Although the technology has already been widely adopted, users can still struggle with the idea of their physical server becoming virtualized, according to Jeff Hunter, a consultant and systems engineer with Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co. in Columbus, Ohio.

“It’s easier to take baby steps and get started,” he said Monday. “People don’t always get it. It takes time to grasp the concept.” Hunter was speaking during an event to launch virtualization software vendor VMware Inc.’s VMware Infrastructure 3 (VI3) suite in Cambridge, Massachusetts.


No one likes the idea. A sysadmin or a manager might feel that he's losing his grip on his Servers or staff (Yes, someday you won't have any staff anymore. Your employees too will become virtual , pretty soon!) Fears are understood. But that does not stop it from happenning. Adressing the typical (or even mixed audience) with the stuff that it will feed on and truly understand is the key to a succesful and effective consultancy.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…
