Data Center Managers love VMware!



Whats not to love about VMware. The products are cool and you have solutions that can fit every budget!

DC estimates that nearly 500,000 server boxes equipped with virtualization software will ship this year, up from just above zero three years ago. By 2009, the number of units shipped is expected to reach 1.2 billion, the research firm said. "I'm shocked by the level of adoption of virtualization," IDC analyst Michelle Bailey told a conference audience.


Gosh! That is some staggering figure! So have you made up your mind yet? If not, catch that first flight and plan to go to Los Angeles today!



VMworld is the place to be if you want to stay abreast with the latest trends. Check here for more details.

More news:
  • Well we knew there will be lots of players writing management software for VMware. Opsware is doing that as well.
Opsware Inc. (NASDAQ: OPSW), the leading provider of Data Center Automation software, today announced the company's strategy for managing complex virtual server environments at the company's annual user conference, OPSWorld, held this week in San Jose, CA. During an opening keynote in which he demonstrated solutions for automating the management of tough IT assignments from VoIP networks to configuration management data bases (CMDB), CEO Ben Horowitz discussed the little understood challenges of managing virtual servers. This complexity created by the rapid adoption of server virtualization -- and the accompanying rise in server "images" to be managed -- has reached crisis proportions as IT departments struggle to keep up with the dramatically increased workload. Horowitz's keynote discussed and demonstrated the value that automation can deliver for environments virtualized with technologies such as VMware, Microsoft Virtual Server, Sun Solaris 10, XenSource and others, both in terms of setting up these environments as well as in the ongoing management of them.




Anyways I'm pretty darn sure VMware will come up with a smart answer on that (HECK they have it already, its called Virtual Center). They have a bunch of smarties , thats for sure.

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…
