VMmark builsd 1.0 ready for benchmarking!



In order to produce the benchmark, VMware has avoided the relatively easy approach of measuring the performance of virtual applications software running on specific machines. Instead, the benchmark measures the scalability of heterogeneous virtualised workloads. According to VMware: "It provides a consistent methodology so benchmark results can be compared across different virtualisation platforms."

The result is that, by using the benchmark, companies should be able to "make appropriate hardware choices, and compare the performance and scalability of different virtualisation platforms", VMware says.


Nice stuff this benchmarking. But will the clients really benchmark their stuff. Or lwetm e put it more bluntly, how the heck are you going to tell a client/customer to benchmark if they just have no clue of why a benchmark is done in the first place. Now that will not mean that all the clients are that way. I am pretty sure that besides silencing folks who have run tests/benchmarks on their own on the web, it will help VMware respond with the "did you use VMmark for it?". So once again besides the cosmetic response to a Gung-ho tester, it surely will help customers do "some kind of testing" before they start deploying VMware in their organizations. And obviously hats off to the VROOM! team!

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…
