Top 5 reasons to choose for virtualization

Well you may have seen that I have given in total more than hundred reasons to go for virtualization. This news item talks about the top 5, check them out:

Here are my top 5 benefits you can realize from server virtualization:

  1. Capital Cost Avoidance. Every time you deploy a VM instead of acquiring a physical server, that action represents several thousand dollars of capital that the company didn't have to spend.
  2. Saving Time & Time = Money. Deployment of a VM using a pre-defined template can be accomplished in minutes, while traditional physical server acquisition/deployment takes days or even weeks.
  3. Environmental Cost Savings. Every physical server in the data center requires physical rack/floor space, power, network connectivity and cooling. Only the host requires these things and whether you're supporting 5 or 20 VMs on the host, the environmental needs do not change.
  4. Portability. Because the VMs utilize virtual hardware, there are no dependencies on the host physical hardware. As new server technology becomes available, you inherit viable servers from acquisition/merger activity or change hardware vendors, you can integrate these hosts into your environment and there is no change necessary for the VMs.
  5. Physical Server Migration/Consolidation. There are many products and methods available to migrate a physical server to a VM with little or no downtime and consolidate them onto a host or into a farm. Many legacy servers will probably function even better as VMs because the host is probably a newer, more powerful server.

Seems good to me, do also join my LinkedIn discussion.

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…
