illar Data Systems Increases Data Center Efficiency with Virtualization solutions

The Pillar Axiom platform is architected to help users consolidate their storage resources, while simplifying management to reduce the cost to acquire, administer, and maintain midrange storage systems. Aligned tightly with VMware’s ability to maximize efficiency for the server environment, Pillar integrates with VMware Infrastructure 3 to enable users to benefit from increased Quality of Service (QoS) at the storage layer. This allows for improved storage resource allocation, a highly available architecture and enhanced interoperability with the current infrastructure, which ensures that customers can drive maximum storage efficiency in a variety of application environments

“The strength of the Pillar Axiom lies in its unique ability to separate and prioritize the performance requirements for each application or database on each array, and allow the system to expand capacity or performance in line with the user’s requirements. This is a key enabling technology in making the Pillar Axiom the world’s most efficient midrange storage system,” said Mike Workman, CEO & Chairman of Pillar Data Systems. “VMware Infrastructure complements Pillar’s objective to aggregate resources, allowing users to combine and virtualize their SAN and NAS environments for a flexible, scalable and efficient architecture.”

As a member of the VMware TAP program, Pillar will provide IT organizations with a scalable solution that will enable them to consolidate their storage and server systems to maximize energy and space efficiencies, while retaining dynamic performance characteristics for application optimization. The combined solution offered by Pillar and VMware enables users to effectively consolidate their periphery elements and achieve high efficiency quotients.

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
