Hifn to Showcase Secure iSCSI Appliances at FOSE 08

LOS GATOS, Calif., March 31, 2008 – Hifn™ (NASDAQ: HIFN), the catalyst behind storage and networking innovation, will showcase its Swarm™ secure iSCSI SAN appliances at FOSE 2008 Conference and Exhibition, April 1-3 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., Booth #1517N.

Hifn’s Swarm appliances are the only iSCSI storage appliances available with integrated AES256 hardware data encryption, providing a simple-to-deploy and easy-to-use, out-of-the-box regulatory compliance solution for government installations facing the complexity of protecting people’s data and mandates governing the retention of information. In addition, Hifn’s Swarm 3000 model was the world’s first iSCSI storage appliance to feature RAID level 6, adding an extra layer of protection against potential data loss during the longer array rebuild times associated with high-capacity SATA drives.

Hifn’s IP SAN storage system allows government users to leverage their existing Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure and IP knowledge base to deploy a secure IP Storage Area Network with the associated cost benefits of storage consolidation and centralized management without the complexity penalties of typical Fibre Channel SANs. Hifn has simplified the management of network storage by including a complete set of storage services with every Swarm iSCSI appliance, including data encryption, storage consolidation, snapshots, remote replication, central management, automatic backup, and support for both iSCSI and NAS (block and file storage) in the same appliance. Those storage services are typically extra-cost add-ons with other storage appliances, making the Swarm Series the most secure and best value in iSCSI storage for government users.

Hifn’s Swarm secure iSCSI appliances are available on the GSA schedule through Promark Technology.

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
