FastScale Technology Joins HP BladeSystem Solution Builder Program

We did a demo with FastScale sometime back and would have loved to have talked to the folks in Cannes. but not all is lost we will be chatting up with the CEO soon and ask where they are heading with this HP partnership.

Santa Clara, Calif., March 10, 2008 – FastScale Technology, Inc, provider of next generation software virtualization and provisioning solutions, today announced that it has joined the HP BladeSystem Solution Builder Program. By utilizing the technologies of FastScale and the capabilities of HP Virtual Connect, which permits real-time changes between server environments and local area network (LAN) and storage area network (SAN) domains across the data center, customers can deploy enterprise-class applications on their BladeSystem servers in seconds, whether servers are physical or virtual.

FastScale’s flagship products, FastScale Composer Suite and FastScale Virtual Manager, address the urgent market need for more dynamic software infrastructure in large IT organizations by delivering an entirely new kind of software virtualization and provisioning solution. With compact, space-reduced server software environments built on-demand, provisioned to physical or virtual servers in seconds, and managed from a central point, the entire server infrastructure becomes a dynamic pool of resources able to adapt to constantly changing demands – on the fly.

“Through the BladeSystem Solution Builder Program, FastScale has access to a wide array of technical, marketing and collaborative resources which will allow both FastScale and HP to deliver better products to our mutual customers,” said Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of FastScale Technology. “The FastScale goal has always been to give customers the ability to dynamically manage and deploy software in the data center, whether servers are physical or virtual. Combining our products with HP’s BladeSystem provides an ideal solution for enterprise-class computing and server consolidation.”

The FastScale technology is the only server software solution available that provides a fully automated approach to building, managing and deploying server application software stacks in the enterprise. The HP BladeSystem architecture helps customers of all sizes address the four key pain points of time, change, cost and energy. Together, customers will have robust and scalable infrastructure that is more affordable, maintainable, uses less power and can adapt dynamically to the needs of the business.

“The BladeSystem Solution Builder Program gives partners the tools and resources to add unique value for our joint customers,” said Jim Ganthier, Director, BladeSystem Division, HP. “FastScale capabilities combined with HP BladeSystem and Virtual Connect will enable customers to reduce the size of application stacks while increasing the speed of bare metal or virtual machine server provisioning. The FastScale Composer Suite provides new levels of provisioning flexibility and performance to meet the ever-changing needs of data centers.”

The HP BladeSystem Solution Builder Program is a global community of more than 300 technology and service delivery providers who collaborate with HP and one another to define, develop, deliver and deploy customer solutions built for HP BladeSystem. Program members include independent hardware vendors, independent software vendors, system integrators and service-oriented resellers with a substantial SI practice and expertise in the rapidly growing blade market.

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
