Verari Systems Announces Industry’s First High Capacity Blade-Based NAS and iSCSI Storage Appliance


“With the SB5165XL StorageServer NAS/iSCSI appliance, Verari’s Storage Group is demonstrating its commitment to continuous innovation and providing customers with an alternative to existing NAS solutions,” said Deni Connor, principal analyst, Storage Strategies NOW. “Verari is delivering industry-leading capacity and energy efficiency with the added benefit of investment protection by delivering new types of solutions for its BladeRack 2 X-Series platforms.”

This high capacity blade-based NAS and iSCSI storage appliance for the Verari Systems BladeRack® 2 XL platform is a powerful enabler for storage consolidation and as an effective alternative for enterprises to consolidate server virtualization resources providing a dramatic improvement in cost of ownership. The iSCSI capabilities of the SB5165XL StorageServer simplify the migration of data resident in server blades to networked storage while the StorageServer’s NAS-based file services are complementary to its IP network-based services. Applications such as Web 2.0, social networking and media achieving, that require file sharing are ideally suited for the SB5165XL, which can deliver significant ease of use, provide heterogeneous data sharing and enable organizations to automate and simplify their data management.

Purpose-built for the Verari Systems BladeRack 2 XL platform and FOREST containerized data center solution, the SB5165XL StorageServer appliance consists of an SB1165 StorageServer blade and up to two SB1056 disk blades, providing up to 24TBs of RAID 6 protected capacity. A single platform can house up to 24 StorageServers delivering 576 terabytes of unified storage in just two data center floor tiles while a FOREST container solution boasts up to 12 petabytes of capacity. These configurations make the SB5165XL StorageServer the densest and most energy efficient NAS/iSCSI storage appliance in the industry, with up to 50 percent savings in energy use and 77 percent better floor space utilization then traditional storage systems.

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
