Red Hat's Hogan Comments on UserLinux

The following three replies are taken from a longer Q & A just published at www.LinuxQuestions.org. Hogan, Manager of Community Relations at Red Hat, does not seem unduly concerned about UserLinux.   Q. What are your thoughts on UserLinux? Hogan: It's a great boost for Debian efforts (meaning the part of the announcement regarding funding). I'm not sure what some of the statements about "proprietary open source" were about, but you say what makes the trades, I guess. I'm still not sure if it's an effort to get funding being Debian-based distros, or a reaction to things Red Hat is doing, or what. We'll see. Maybe they'll join UnitedLinux and really stick it to us. :-D   Q. Do you think it poses a legitimate threat to Red Hat Enterprise Linux? Hogan: Not really. Not yet, anyway. I tend to look outside the community for the enemy and we've got bigger, imminent threats r... (more)

Virtualization Expo New York Call for Papers to Expire January 15, 2010

Virtualization Expo on Ulitzer Virtualization cuts across just about all that you might find in the today's data center: to one degree or another, clients, servers, applications, storage systems, data networks, and security can all now be virtualized. . By compressing multiple workloads onto a single physical server, Virtualization enables data centers to save tremendous amounts of money on hardware, power, cooling and floor space. For small and midsized enterprises, Virtualization can also help data centers tap into levels of fault tolerance previously enjoyed only by huge organizations. And chief executives are discovering that Virtualization has the potential not only to improve the balance sheet, but also to strengthen competitive advantage and put a shine on the corporate brand. Designing and managing IT environments independently from physical limitations is... (more)

Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
