Hello, I'm Roger Sakowski, one of Dan Kusnetzky's colleagues at the Kusnetzky Group. Dan and I had a conversation with InfoVista recently and this post is a quick summary of that conversation.
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.
Stefan Hochuli Paychère, Founder & CTO, of Dunes Technologies, spent a few moments speaking with my colleague, Roger Sakowski, and I to help us understand his company's products, VS-O and VD-O. Dunes appears to be working from the point of view that a revolutionary change is occurring in the industry and Dunes doesn't need to offer ready-made links to the past.
In an earlier post, I ran through the "Golden Rules of IT" that appear to guide how medium and large organizations adopt technology. I've had several requests to run through those rules once again.
After I published Novell offers virtual machine driver pack my friends at Novell responded quickly to clear up my confusion about their announcement. Wow, guys, that was fast!
A few days ago, Novell announced that the first service pack (SP1) for SUSE® Linux Enterprise 10 was available to its customers. Here's a pointer to their Website.
ClearCube announced new technology that eliminates the distance barrier long associated with delivering full performance video from centralized PC blades. The company is introduced the I9420, I9440 and the C7420, three new user port devices, at the SIFMA Technology Management Conference & Exhibit.
Out of the blue, I received an Email from Roger W. Boyce, President and CEO of Evident Software, offering to brief me on the company, its products and its direction.
SWsoft - partitioned operating systems are better for hosters than virtual machines. Are they better for you?
I had a chance to speak with Douglas Johnson, Director of Marketing for the Hosting market for SWsoft about the company's approach to partitioned operating systems, what the company calls "Operating System Virtualization." Thanks for taking so much time discussing SWsoft with me, Doug!
I've followed PlateSpin for a number of years and have always found the pragmatic, productive approach taken by the company to be refreshing. I had an opportunity to speak with Stephen Pollack, Founder, CEO of PlateSpin, the other day.
I was speaking with Greg Scott, a former colleague from Digital Equipment Corporation, recently about his company InfraSupport. Although his business focuses more on network infrastructure, such as firewalls, virus protection and spam filtering, InfraSupport has started down an interesting path towards helping organizations virtualize meetings at a very low cost.
