Research Group names HDS the #1 in Block Level Virtualization

The results were attained following structured interviews with Fortune 1000 storage professionals across a variety of vertical industries. Throughout the last 10 iterations of TheInfoPros Storage Study, spanning five years, Hitachi Data Systems has consistently led in customers ratings for both in-use block-level virtualization and near-term deployments.

The steady stream of positive customer feedback speaks to the strength of our storage solutions and our unique ability to deliver these in a services-oriented approach, said Hu Yoshida, CTO, Hitachi Data Systems. Hitachi is the only company to deliver storage virtualization in a scalable, enterprise-class, storage control unit, which in turn, provides the capability to aggregate the storage services of the control unit to enhance lower level storage resources. Combining storage services like thin provisioning in the control unit with virtualization of external storage creates a powerful combination designed to dramatically improve storage utilization across all tiers of virtualized storage. The results of this study clearly demonstrate that there is strong demand for enterprise-class storage virtualization, and were pleased to be recognized as the first choice among the Fortune 1000.

The results of our study show that the number of block-virtualization users are growing sizably, with deployments nearly doubling from 2006 to 2007, said Robert L. Stevenson, managing director, Storage Practice, TheInfoPro. Hitachi Data Systems has proven time and again that it is the vendor of choice when it comes to helping customers leverage the best virtualization technologies to manage burgeoning data growth and mitigate risk factors.

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…
