Emulex announces LightPulse Virtual HBA for VI3


Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) today announced that its LightPulse(r) Virtual Host Bus Adapter (HBA) technology, with industry-standard N-Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) support, is integrated into the latest release of VMware Infrastructure, announced today. Industry-standard NPIV enables end users to leverage the benefits of combining server virtualization with traditional storage area network (SAN) best practices in their data centers. This represents a first major innovation delivered from VMware's Community Source program, and reflects Emulex's collaboration with VMware on this technology.

Emulex's LightPulse Virtual HBA technology, composed of Emulex 4Gb/s Fibre Channel HBAs and NPIV driver technology, enables customers to effectively 'virtualize' SAN connections so that each virtual machine has independent access to its own protected storage. In addition, Emulex LightPulse Virtual HBA technology enables storage and SAN fabric administrators to manage connections from virtualized machines in the same way, and with the same tools, as traditional physical hardware-based servers. The end result is greater storage security, enhanced management and migration of virtual machines and the ability to implement SAN best practices such as LUN-masking and zoning for individual virtual machines.

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…
