VMware Server : Poor man's ESX Server?

Well you are not poor by having VMware Server, you just are not ready for the ESX Server yet. Well with that I mean that if you are seriously deploying VMware Server in your test, dev and staging environments (who isn't these days! My wife came to me telling me that her employer is also running VMware, I mean there are high schools experimenting with VMware. Some of them are even onto ESX Servers! Can't divulge anymore names, sorry)then the virtualization bug has bitten you. And its real sweet pain, the kind of pain you experience when you work out in a gym ;)

So, are you a poor man by deploying VMware Server instead of ESX. No way! You just are gearing up for virtualization. That is all. You will obviously taste the fruits of ESX Server , the premium flagship product of VMware. But just get started with the VMware Server. Do it on Windows , do it on Linux. Just do it!

So sometimes you will find it, other times it will find you. You two will meet at some crossroads, thats for sure!

And when you do fall in love , you sing tales like these...

Thanks to the cool networking features in VMWare, all my virtual systems can be on the local network (direct or NAT) or they can be on their very own private network. I can also mount iso images and have them act as a directly connected CDROM, making installs a snap.

See how this blogger discovered freedom!

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…
