SWsoft reveals milestones and first half growth


I missed this in all mayhem. Anyways , I had been on vacation until the 14th August , and intentionally didn't want to blog around from the forest where we didn't have any internet connection.

The sales growth reflects accelerating customer demand for SWsoft virtualization and automation technology. The company's Parallels, Virtuozzo and other products now power more than 1.3 million virtual desktops and servers:

  • More than 130,000 physical servers are currently powered by SWsoft products.

  • More than 600,000 physical desktops and notebooks use Parallels software.

  • More than 700,000 virtual environments (or containers) are powered by Virtuozzo.

  • Nearly every Fortune 500 company uses Parallels virtual machine software.

"These results are clear indications of the useful innovation and unique value that SWsoft products offer hundreds of thousands of customers every day," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. "Our company is differentiated as the only one delivering both OS virtualization and virtual machine software, along with a suite of automation software. Rather than creating new software platforms, SWsoft is focused on enhancing existing operating systems and applications for the benefit of customers and other software vendors."

Not bad at all, read the rest of the press release here.

    I think SWsoft is confused. They might have _sold_ this many licenses of Parallels Desktop for Mac, but make no mistake, what people actually _use_ nowadays is VMware Fusion.

    Not very surprising, given how Fusion trounces Parallels in benchmarks.

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…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall
-----------------

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall


Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy


What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors


I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!


I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run


We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors


we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred


Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested




*osedax(bone devourer, newly discovered marine genus) feeds on a fallen(sunken) whale carcass(which is also called a whale fall). Read more here
