The Compute Era -- which the tech world appears to be entering as we speak, according to HP -- boils down to the transformation of traditional server silos into pools of processing resources.
Timesharing used to be the way to share the resources of a single system. It was replaced by client/server computing but suppliers of VDI technology are looking to dig up the past.
Dell Software this week delivered Foglight for Virtualization Enterprise Edition, to extend the depth and breadth of managing and optimizing server virtualization, as well as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and their joint impact on such IT resources as storage.

AppZero, formally Trigence, demonstrated a different approach to allowing organizations to take advantage of the computing resources made available by hosting suppliers at Demo 09. Rather than taking the approach that is typically proposed by the suppliers of virtual machine technology, AppZero's approach is to encapsulate applications rather than complete desktop or server environments.
So tonight I brought home a spare desktop and set up a home server. The goal is to make it easy to use simple, cheap devices like the Acer Aspire One for everyday computing, but still have access to more powerful resources for the heavy lifting.

Singapore-based video software maker implements virtualization to maximize its limited resources, in order to support a rapidly-growing video portal.
This is an impressive update to Microsoft's Small Business Server that packs a big punch. However, it may be overkill for a lot of companies and isn't quite as easy to manage as it first appears.
Microsoft provided attendees of its Professional Developer Conference this week with a 160 GB drive full of bits and resources. The Windows 7 M3 pre-beta build and Windows Server 2008 R2 M3 pre-beta are on the drives. What else is on there?
Cloud providers and mainstay enterprise software vendors could make sweeter WOA plus SOA music together. They may not have a choice. If Microsoft acquires Yahoo!, there will be a huge push for Microsoft Oriented Architecture that will double-down on "software plus services." And MSFT combined with Yahoo would have an awful lot in place to work from -- from the device and PC client, to the server farm, business applications, developer tools and communities, and ramp-up of global cloud/content/user metadata resources. I think Microsoft already understands the power of WOA plus SOA.
VMware will announce Tuesday that enterprise software giant SAP will support its applications running on VMware ESX Server. Under the arrangement, SAP will support its virtualized software running on VMware (all resources) and 64-bit Windows, Linux and Solaris platforms.
With the upcoming launch of SQL Server 2008, Microsoft will focus its massive resources on the issue of licensing, in an attempt to win customers for Oracle and IBM.
BriefingsDirect SOA Insights analysts on virtualization trends and role of IT operations efficiency for SOA
When you really embrace SOA, you're going to wind up with more moving parts for a given solution. And in doing so, you could create this management challenge of how to allocate resources for each of these individual services that have their own life cycle. There's a natural potential to move towards server virtualization to do that, so you can get your arms around that whole management concept. Where I've been disappointed in the management space, however, was that we really haven’t seen anything from the large systems management vendors to start tackling this problem.
With AMD's launch of its latest greatest Opteron server chip--formerly codenamed Barcelona--one of the biggest questions is whether lightning can strike twice.The first lightning strike came when AMD (all resources) launched the Athlon line and became a legitimate desktop player.

Here's a quick review of the announcement highlights:A quick scan of the XenSource announcement reveals that XenEnterprise v4 offers the following new features:XenMotion and Server Resource Pools: Multiple physical systems may be combined into a pool of virtual resources.
Dan Briody comments on an article in theWall Street Journal discussing companies which ban public communicationservices:I'm not going to argue that these technologiesare often used for personal reasons. They are. But so are phones, and e-mail,and water coolers, and bathrooms. And they do come in handy. Instant messagingis a far quicker way to communicate than e-mail. Personal Web e-mail accountsare great backups for corporate server outages. And any company that'snot looking hard at switching their entire telecommunications system overto the IP network is already behind the game. Bandwidth concerns? Please.Within 10 years every piece of business communication will be running throughthe IP network.Now what's the technology direction forbathrooms and water coolers? On the other hand, perhaps the reason some of the companies mentioned havelocked up public communication services is that they have business-qualityproducts deployed or in plan, and are going to use enterprise connectionslike those in the new Sametime 7.5 to manage the connectivity for theirenterprise. Still, I think open and available is the way to go. I really appreciatethat IBM acknowledges that some personal use of corporate resources isbound to happen, and not to make us punch codes into the copier/FAX touse it, not to block eddiebauer.com, and not to turn off ports for AOL/Skypeetc. Link: eWeekBiz Bytes: The Absurd Crackdown on Free Internet Services> (Thanks, boss)
Rather than buy an expensive hardware VPN device, you can use Windows Server 2003's built-in VPN to allow remote users to access network resources.
Virtual servers translate to real dollars as spending around virtualization activities will balloon to nearly $15 bln worldwide by 2009. According to IDC, a disruptive change is at hand as customers rapidly adopt virtualized servers - partitioning of smaller 2-4 way x86 systems using software developed specifically for the volume server space - in an attempt to contain costs, leverage existing IT resources, and seamlessly handle growing workloads.
AJAX's 'client-service' architecture eliminates the need for an application server to connect the Web client to back-end resources.
