VMware Lab Mabager Beta 2.4 up for grabs!


Go here and get your Lab Manager. For those who want to know a brief history of Lab Manager: It is the Akimbi which we spoke about in our last few blog posts. Akimbi's site is still online but I'm sure the staff and the stuff has relocated to the VMware's HQ.

A print shot:



Anyways Lab Manager is a great provisioning tool but with a price of $ 15,000 (I don't know the details) it might be difficult for me to promote this tool against the openQRM . A some places like SMB and Educational and gov. institutions the prices keep adding up.

I am still excited about the tool and am pretty curious to test it as last time I was not able to build a lab environment with Akimbi. It had some problems with installing the agent on the ESX 2.5.x which , back then, was apparently supported by the Akimbi. I'll check if its fixed now.

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…
