Virtualization: Whats newsworthy and whats not!

I get occassionally comments from users, one such comment prompt me to write this little post:

"Wow! It's a news-worthy event when Virtual Iron actually convinces someone to buy their software?"

My answer to that is yes!


  • It tells about Virtualization adoption and that we are adopting Virtualization all the time.
  • It tells us that we need to look at parties like Virtual Iron as well because we are looking at virtualization solutions.
  • This is a blog, I develop strategies based on the amount of virtualization adoption that is taking place.
  • I would even like to contact or be contacted by Virtual Iron clients to learn about their best practices.
  • We cover virtualization on a broader scale; should Sun, Oracle, IBM, XenSource, VMware, Citrix, Parallels or any other virtualization vendor, open source or proprietary, deploy their solutions on their client base.
  • 95% of the customer base is yet to be virtualized and we are very curious which vendor is "truly" working towards helping clients to think on the next-level strategy and business transition.
So is Virtual Iron's deployment news worthy? You bet it is!

In respond to a comment to this post of mine.


  1. Any press on virtualization is a good press. The more use of virtualization technology only benefits all users as vendors will be forced to innovate and improve their product offerings.
    We currently use Virtual Iron 4.1 and spent a year reviewing different vendors. Virtual Iron has the key features and capabilities that are the core reason for deploying a virtualized server array. With the release of 4.1 it has only gotten better with less overhead and more features. We are running Virtual Iron in a production environment and it has held up to the demands of our business. I strongly suggest a look at VI before you make decide on a vendor.

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

*osedax(bone devourer, newly discovered marine genus) feeds on a fallen(sunken) whale carcass(which is also called a whale fall). Read more here
