Note: I'll also be posting an interview with Hyper9 executives soon here. For those who don't know yet, our friend David Marshall works at Hyper9!

AUSTIN, TX—September 10, 2008 — Hyper9, Inc., the leader in search-based software for managing the dynamic nature of virtual environments, today announced that it will hold open auditions for enterprise virtual administrators to join its Hyper9 beta program at booth # 1054 at VMworld, September 15-18, in Las Vegas. Regardless of whether they qualify for the beta program or not, all candidates are invited to drop by the Hyper9 booth and enter for a chance to win a fantastic combination of a Nintendo Wii machine and an Aerosmith Guitar Hero game bundle so they can rock out at home, too!

An initial band of rock star virtual administrators have already helped Hyper9 compose and fine tune the product pain points to be addressed. Starting on September 15 at its booth, Hyper9 will open up the program to experienced and talented virtual administrators in order to orchestrate a much deeper and specific arrangement of product features.

“As an early enrollee in the Hyper9 beta program, Pitney Bowes has benefitted from the comprehensive visibility that Hyper9 has provided into our virtual environment,” said Steven D. Acreman, Infrastructure Manager (EMEA) Tech Central Software Services, Pitney Bowes Business Insight. “This is especially important when you consider how quickly the virtual environment can change.”

“We’ve been working closely with the Hyper9 team to shape this into an important troubleshooting tool,” said D. Arell Chapman, AVP Network Administration, United Bancorp, Inc. “Because Hyper9 allows me to run diagnostics from so many different dimensions—from the hardware to OS to hypervisor and even the application layer—I’m able to see the full scope of my virtual environment.”

“As a services and hosting organization, Technical Momentum is always focused on the service levels it delivers to its customers. To do that, we have to constantly be on the lookout for the best management products,” said Brent Taylor, managing partner, Technical Momentum (MSP). “Hyper9 has structured its beta program to optimize the contributions of all its participants and to ensure that its Hyper9 product is a winner.”

The beta program, which is open to qualified enterprise users, is designed to provide early access to the core Hyper9 search product, as well as add-on product modules such as VMDNA, monitoring and reporting. Preliminary virtualization rock star members also are encouraged to help recruit the people they believe will have the greatest impact on the Hyper9 product.

In June, Hyper9 unveiled its search-based platform for managing the dynamic nature of virtual environments. Hyper9 leverages a specialized search engine to access both real-time and historical data in the virtual stack from the guest operating system to the physical infrastructure, and then presents that data via a next-generation user interface. As a result, Hyper9 supports faster troubleshooting, comprehensive monitoring and detailed reporting on the performance, configuration and utilization of virtual environments.

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
