Manpower Asia Pacific saves 130 servers with VMware!

Before consolidation, the company had about 200 servers across the region. They now have 70 physical servers in Singapore, having consolidated about 150 servers already, mainly from Japan and Australia. Of the 70 servers, 25 are running VMware’s ESX, a virtulisation solution from VMware. On average, each physical system hosts about four virtual machines.


Community experimentation is one thing, community enthusiasm is another. Adoption by the business community is a totally different ball game!

VMware just shows that it quietly does the latter.

While virtualisation may not be appropriate for all companies, it is particularly useful for companies that have many servers with low utlisation rates. By consolidating virtual servers on one physical server, utilisation rates naturally shoot up.


And each and every shop has these underutilized boxes. You'd be lying to yourself or to your directors and CIOs by stating that all your machines are really sweating it out. Imagine if your directors and CIOs started asking independent firms to do a TCO/ROIC. They will, sooner or later!

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…
