BEA: Pushes Java Virtualization like a true market leader

Love the BEA folks for that! Love them for a lot more reasons!

BEA Systems, Inc., a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced new performance results and unveiled major product plans that will help the company expand its leadership role in Java virtualization and further execute on its Liquid Enterprise vision.

According to early lab test results jointly conducted by BEA and Intel, LiquidVM(TM) -- the foundational technology behind WebLogic Server(R) Virtual Edition, runs Java over two times more efficiently than using the normal OS-based software stack on VMware Infrastructure. Because LiquidVM runs directly on top of the VMware ESX Server hypervisor platform without a traditional OS, it can manage memory resources for Java applications much more efficiently than the alternative OS model. This can help enable customers to increase hardware utilization and thereby reduce TCO. This approach to enterprise Java virtualization is unique in the industry; no other product to date has been able to match this level of performance.

BEA also announced that it is making key components of its Enterprise 360 offering available as virtual appliances ready to run directly in virtualized environments such as VMware Infrastructure. The company will start with WebLogic(R) Portal and AquaLogic(R) Service Bus, expected early next year, and eventually support additional products under the virtual appliance paradigm as part of its Liquid Enterprise strategy. Under this model, enterprise applications and the infrastructure that supports them can be configured and deployed independent of the underlying server and operating system. This can allow service-oriented architecture (SOA) services to be treated as virtual appliances that can be deployed whenever and wherever needed, representing a major shift in the software industry.

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
