Compellent certifies Novell


Salt Lake City, Utah, March 17, 2008 – Compellent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE Arca: CML) today announced at the Novell BrainShare event that its storage area network (SAN) has been certified with both Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and NetWare 6.5 operating systems, helping make it seamless for Novell administrators to leverage the Compellent SAN to lower storage costs and energy consumption. The Novell Yes Certified designation applies to both Fibre Channel and iSCSI server connections to the Compellent SAN.

As sustainability initiatives become a growing trend, many storage administrators are looking for greener data center solutions, but not at the sacrifice of performance, administration time or higher cost. When paired with Novell technology, Compellent's advanced storage virtualization, automated tiered storage and thin provisioning can help administrators see significant savings on hardware, energy expenses and CO2 emissions.

The Hesperia Unified School District, with 22,000 students in San Bernadino county, Calif., recently consolidated its data storage and Novell NetWare and GroupWise environment on the Compellent SAN. Hesperia IT administrators soon realized significant performance, cost and green benefits.

"With the combined benefits of Compellent and Novell we expect to eliminate 40 servers, all internal server disks, and 10 air conditioning units while implementing a true disaster recovery solution," said James Lincoln, assistant director of information technology at Hesperia Unified School District. "That’s good for the environment and our bottom line. We're now able to focus IT resources on enriching our students' learning experiences."

Energy conservation in the data center has become increasingly critical. Some analysts estimate nearly half of all data centers will not have sufficient power and cooling capacities in 2008.

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…
