Expect Dynamic Data Centers to be the norm

Techworld's Manek muses about it:

Let's not kid ourselves about ideological spending on so-called 'greenness' - how likely is that? - the trend is of course driven by ratcheting energy prices. One of the consequences is the need to reach out and drag as many applications and assets as possible back into the datacentre, where energy use and other attributes can be managed - and where devices are nowhere near as vulnerable to malware and user-induced glitches; we'll leave IT staff-induced issues out of the equation for the moment.

Additionally, virtualisation technology has now moved on from being simply a way of consolidating servers - although for most real-world users as opposed to commentators, this remains a goal yet actually to be achieved.

There's a growing awareness of virtualisation's ability improve an organisation's disaster recovery schemes. Instead of needing an expensive, energy-guzzling second infrastructure humming away, 24 hours a day, it's now possible to institute a standby system consisting a fraction of the original hardware, but loaded up with virtual images of the production datacentre's servers.

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…
