A press release crossed my desk on September 6, 2007 from Virtual Iron concerning some very strong benchmark results. Here's a segment of their release.
Virtualization reaches from hand-held devices to the data center to the clouds. Virtually Speaking examines the forces behind this expansion, the suppliers of the technology and the organizations using the technology.
Daniel Kusnetzky, a reformed software engineer and product manager, founded Kusnetzky Group LLC in 2006. He's literally written the book on virtualization and often comments on cloud computing, mobility and systems software. In his spare time, he's also the managing partner of Lux Sonus LLC, an investment firm.
Kenneth 'Ken' Hess is a full-time Windows and Linux system administrator with 20 years of experience with Mac, Linux, UNIX, and Windows systems in large multi-data center environments.
I had the opportunity to use an HTC X7501 for a while and thought you might be interested in my take on this type of device. This, by the way, isn't meant to be a device review.
XenSource has been really busy since the announcement of its acquisition by Citrix Systems. It seems that the company has come forward with quite a few interesting announcements.
Cassatt Active Power ManagementIf you'll recall, I posted a series on virtualization and green computing back in May. It seems to me that while virtualization technology won't solve all of the problems of power utilization and heat production in a modern datacenter, the proper use of this technology could certainly help.
Today Virtual Iron is announcing Virtual Iron version 4. John Thibault, President and CEO, and my old friend Mike Grandinetti, chief marketing officer, took time out of their very busy schedules to chat with me about the new release.
VMware and its partners are gearing up for VMworld. I've been speaking with quite a few companies about their announcement plans and will present may take on them when I can.
Many IT executives remember a time in which everyone using the organization's systems used a character cell or block mode terminal. Although these devices presented only limited number of graphical elements and text only, once they were deployed, little to nothing needed to be done to them throughout their lifetime.
I had the opportunity to interview Rob Baker, Smartronix's Director, Strategic Enterprise Initiatives. He's the first user of Kidaro's desktop virtualization technology I've had the good fortune to meet.
I had the opportunity to interview the Director of Development of a large multinational financial services organization. Since IT is often considered a competitive advantage for these firms, it didn't surprise me that he asked that neither he nor his organization be named in this post.
The good folks at FastScale Technology contacted me to let me know about an announcement they were making today. I had a chance to speak with Lynn LeBlanc, Fastscale CEO, and Richard Offer, VP of Engineering.
