Unbeatable offer by VMware for SMB

I am going directly for the ESX version for our project in Africa. I was initially planning the VMware Server in production for our 8 clients (its is one project, but the clients handle their activities individually), but this offer is absolutely impossible to ignore!

So I don't see any reason to sticking to the VMware Server plan anymore!

This week we are “kicking off” a new promotion called VI3 Foundation targeted at customers that want the advanced functionality of VI3 but for smaller deployments. For $3,000 a customer gets VirtualCenter Server 2.0 plus three 2-processor licenses for VMware Infrastructure 3 Starter Edition. So for $3,000 an SMB gets our hypervisor based virtualization platform (ESX Server) and our fully functional management product VirtualCenter. For more information you can go to our website.

I said this was an evolution and it is. VMware was the first company to introduce a free virtualization product with VMware Server in Summer of 2006. We were the first commercial vendor to have a free P2V/ V2V product called VMware Converter Starter Edition that reached general availability back in January, 2007. Finally a key piece of our strategy is virtual appliances and any customers can go out to Virtual Appliance Marketplace and easily download trial virtual appliances including 3rd party software. VMware was the first to enable these technologies for free. We had some followers (as all market leaders do) but we were the first company that believed that enabling customers to have free virtualization products was important. Can’t beat the value of free.

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…
