GridToday's report on Virtualization

The 451 Group believes that server virtualization is transforming datacenter management by breaking the one-to-one relationship between applications and (usually Windows) servers.

I'be been saying for a long time. While you all are looking at the relationships between apps and servers. If you are a manager this is what I can (almost) guarantee you will happen:
  • A healthy working venn will be created with all the collaborative units within and outside your domain, meaning users/admins/all of them will be able to relate to each other.
  • Will help both your E- and O (Nohria & Beer, HBR) change models dramatically
  • Applications mobility will be a reality (how often we have choked on all kinds of little fixes)
  • Clients will experience enormous gains and insights into their "own intellectual property" by committing themselves (Or should I say flirt) to such proven technology
I can go on and on. But honestly this the first good thing I am seeing from a disruptive technology such as virtualization. We are finally getting a grip on ourselves!

Server virtualization and related technologies can lower capital, energy and labor costs in the datacenter by streamlining application development and by consolidating workloads into more efficient arrangements of hardware. The 451 Group expects that, over the next two years, this will result in increasingly ubiquitous virtualization. All major server operating systems will include 'bare metal' virtualization as a standard. All major server CPUs will include hardware assistance for virtualization.

While 2 year is a might be a bit too early but hey in 2009 we will be into a totally different space, thats for sure. Read here...

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…
