Garter Data Center: Brocade presents Data Center Fabric Architecture

Another *.ppt or is it really worthwhile something. I on one side am excited with all these developments, but I just hope that consumers are seeing this as the beginning on an era and decide wisely!

The new Brocade DCF architecture provides several tangible and significant advantages compared to alternative approaches, including:

    -- The Brocade DCF is a policy-based, application-driven architecture. It
adapts and responds to the changing needs for managing applications and
data. It also helps ensure that important data center services -- such
as data security, encryption, backup, and replication -- are
automatically available based on defined policies, and that they do not
encumber the infrastructure when not in use.
-- The Brocade DCF simplifies and optimizes important new technologies
such as server virtualization. The vast majority of virtual servers
connect to networked storage, and Brocade is using its deep storage
networking experience to optimize and automate these connections,
helping customers to simplify their environments and operations.
-- The Brocade DCF provides customers with investment protection. It
enables customers to leverage their existing IT resources -- including
servers, storage, and SANs -- seamlessly incorporating them into the
evolving data center fabric. As a result, the Brocade DCF maximizes
cost savings while minimizing disruption and risk.
-- The Brocade DCF provides customers with unparalleled choices. Brocade
is working with industry-leading storage, server, and systems partners
to ensure maximum compatibility and choice for customers within the
Brocade DCF architecture. Customers can enjoy best-in-class solutions
for servers, storage, protocols, virtualization techniques, and
management tools.

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…

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
