VMworld 2008 leaks: VMware on "Configuration intelligence" with Update Manager and Virtual Center Extensions; Fortispehere CTO responds!

VMware will be talking about analytics and intelligence in its own ESX, not Data Center. Something which is the worry of a typical data center manager who has all kinds of hyprvisors and desktop and streaming virtualization technologies.

This move, although deceptive in doing the Data Center talk, only focuses on its ESX server. Since VMware hasn't found a way get out of the hypervisor arena, it will do some talk of Cloud Computing, some talk on some enhancements to its interface, some mention of ESX 4.0 beta. All some introductions with some upgrades.

Anyways here's Fortisphere CTO's response:

"I'm glad that VMware is validating the market need for better visibility, control and automation. It is a pain we are seeing in the market today (every day) and it is front and center with customers that have deployed production infrastructure. I believe the move is a positive one for traditional virtualization management companies like Fortisphere as it will eventually allow us easier, more centralized access to the underlying data we need to feed our next-generation policy engine.

VMware's move is focused on the underlying platform performance and not on traditional data-center management. Obviously, this is a critical need for them maintaining a leadership position with the ESX platform against the likes of Microsoft and Hyper-V.

We see three fundamental requirements for successful virtualization management that differentiates our strategy from VMware:

1. We are focused on pioneering policy-based automation - our policy engine is the most robust, and leading edge on the market. Their primary purpose is the platform and keeping it as the technology leader.

2. We are focused on heterogeneous and vendor agnostic solutions. VMware is focused on its platform.

3. To succeed you need to be partner focused and have extensive ecosystem integration."

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…
