Virtualization: Don't we all need labs?



This blogger needed to learn about security and hacking. So he turned to VMware's VMware Player. Well there are lots of things you can do with the free VMware Server as well. Loads of them. I have personally lab enviroment where I cook (including the heavily downloaded Avastu Appliances) loads of appliances. Convert them for different formats (like Vmware Workstation etc) with VMware Converter and send them over to various clients (users, external developers etc).

Anyways this blogger too describes how he turned to VMware for his lab testing...

One of the tools I use is called VMware Player, a FREE application that allows you to run predefined virtual guests, which can also be downloaded for FREE. All the FREE virtual machines offered are obviously open source. VMware Player can be played on Windows 2000 Pro and Server, Windows XP Home and Pro, and also Windows Server 2003. It can also be played on various flavours of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux, Mandrake Linux and Ubuntu Linux.

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…
