VMware: Enterprise Desktop of tomorrow is here today!

VMware, Inc., the virtualization leader, today announced an end-to-end virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution with the introduction of VMware Virtual Desktop Manager 2, the company's next generation connection broker. Today's news extends VMware's comprehensive line of desktop virtualization software and services to bring new levels of security, mobility and manageability to global enterprise desktop users. The new software will be among the many products and solutions showcased this week at VMworld 2007 in San Francisco.

"The desktop is fundamentally changing," said Jerry Chen, senior director of enterprise desktop solutions at VMware. "Our customers are transforming the way they manage their desktop infrastructure and replacing traditional PCs with centralized desktops that can be more effectively managed and controlled. Users of virtual desktops can enjoy reliability, data protection and disaster recovery capabilities that have traditionally been available only for server applications. In addition, they get the flexibility of being able to access their desktops from many locations and devices."

VMware Virtual Desktop Manager 2 is a component of VMware VDI, an end-to- end desktop virtualization solution that enables organizations to centralize desktop management and control using the VMware Infrastructure 3 platform. Through tight integration with VMware Virtual Center, VMware Virtual Desktop Mana`ger delivers enterprise-class virtual desktop management while providing end users with a familiar desktop experience. VMware Virtual Desktop Manager connects remote clients to centralized desktops that can be accessed securely from almost anywhere and from many different hardware platforms. VMware Virtual Desktop Manager is designed to meet the security and scalability needs of small and large deployments.



Right on the money this. I may have to already start looking for desktop virtualization (I started with server virtualization on my international project), I did apply for Pano Membership as I really love the stuff (and let me be absolutely shameless and say that : I have the cash for it as well) and I know what needs to be done tomorrow better be done today (if not yesterday!)

WHY?

People, users, admins don't have the time to spend managing the enterprize on clients and servers, no sire, we ain't got no time for that!

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
