Attenda Wins VMware Partner of the Year Award for Its Hosting Services

London - 7th March 2008- Attenda Limited, the Always On Managed Services
company, today announced that it has been awarded the VMware EMEA
Hosting Partner of the Year Award.

The award was presented at the Partners Awards ceremony at the Palais
des Festivals in Cannes, France, as part of VMworld Europe 2008, which
was attended by more than 4,500 IT professionals from around Europe to
experience Europe's largest virtualisation industry event.

The award is a mark of Attenda's success as a leading VMware Service
Provider, bringing to market new virtual infrastructure hosting and
managed services offerings.

Commenting on the Award, Steve Jackson, Director, EMEA Strategic
Partners, VMware, said "VMware is proud to honour Attenda with this well
deserved accolade. As one of our primary EMEA Service Provider Partners,
Attenda is embracing VMware 's datacenter virtualization capabilities in
VMware Infrastructure 3 to create innovative and powerful on-demand
computing services for its clients."

Attenda is utilising VMware technology to power its Real Time
Infrastructure, with the benefits of faster provisioning, higher
availability and lower cost than would be possible with conventional
hardware hosting, whilst also helping the environment by consuming less
power and data centre space.

"Our adoption of VMware in late 2006 transformed our business. By
leveraging the functionality of VMware, we have been able to improve the
agility and availability of our clients applications, whilst providing a
robust DR platform," comments Mark Fowle, CEO, Attenda Limited.

According to industry analysts, utility computing is becoming a key
component of the hosted services industry and Attenda is providing a
broad range of utility computing solutions, from high end managed
services to individual web hosting solutions.

Fowle continues, "This award from VMware and our other certifications
and industry awards, is a great testament to the investments we continue
to make in our shared operations platform Attenda M.O. Time and time
again, it proves to differentiate Attenda and deliver a quality of
service and cost point unmatched in the managed services industry."

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
