SIMtone Corporation Partners with Brightstar to Offer Operators Global Fulfillment of SNAP Cloud Terminal Devices

Durham, NC (PRWEB) October 1, 2008 -- SIMtone Corporation, a privately held company delivering the next cloud computing paradigm, today announced a partnership with Brightstar Corporation, the global leader in customized distribution and supply chain solutions for the wireless industry. Addressing the needs of network operators and carriers that are utilizing its cloud computing platform, SIMtone will leverage Brightstar's global supply chain infrastructure to deliver zero-touch SIMtone SNAP terminals and devices. Additionally, Brightstar agreed to invest in SIMtone and will use the SIMtone cloud computing platform for its own operations.

SIMtone's carrier-grade universal cloud computing software platform consists of three core components - the Universal Service Provisioning platform, the Virtual Service Platform, and a series of zero-touch terminals called SNAPs. Together, these components provide network operators and their business customers with a complete platform to quickly build and ubiquitously deliver highly scalable, secure and very low-cost cloud computing services such as virtual desktops, DaaS, SaaS applications, and other Web services to anyone, anywhere and on-demand. SIMtone SNAP terminals allow users to easily and securely access all SIMtone-powered cloud computing services from any Internet, wireless, 3G, LAN or WAN connection. SIMtone SNAP terminals are offered as standalone, low-cost hardware appliances that require zero configuration, or software terminals usable on browsers or on PCs, thin clients and mobile devices. Further extending its SNAP product line, SIMtone recently introduced its SNAPbook - an ultra-compact mobile device based on the Asus Eee hardware that enables mobile access to any cloud service from any WiFi hotspot. All SIMtone SNAP terminals deliver the full, native end-user experience created by each computing service hosted in the cloud, on-demand and on-the-fly, including full frame-rate desktop media and native USB services for printing, storage and synchronization of devices such as PDAs or the Apple iPod.

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
