What that sort of thing really comes down to, of course, is having champions in IT who can evangelize the solutions needed in their departments and organizations and "sell" the decision makers on the appropriate solutions.
IBM PureSystems can integrate with and access resources that you may have in AWS through the standard open interfaces available...but PureSystems are not designed to manage the resources that you may be using in AWS
1)I love the concept of one box with multiple OS'es, remote administration, IaaS in general. Is IBM the first in this space?
2)I was at Usenix the other week and no one I talked with had ever heard of IBM Pure. I rarely hear about Pure outside of this site, but I think the concept of IBM Pure and IaaS both newsworthy and disruptive. Why stealth marketing?
3)You said "See it, touch it, understand it." I'm in. Is there a website that has a schedule of appearances where I can actually see and touch the hardware?
Yes, this is my point. If you have lots of folks who love to run servers, they have to do something else. First actions could be porting their local environments into the shared platforms. They have to want to do this. Then, there has to be a transition.
As a general troubleshooting rule: If you see the radio player above, you should have audio, and buffering can be fixed with a refresh. If you don't see the radio player, BlogTalkRadio may be blocked by your firewall, in which case you'll have to come back later from a different computer.
Phenix: You are to download the slides through the link above the chat box. It's not a webinar in the traditional sense. The speaker is talking you through her slides (you should hear the audio -- if you don't, refresh).
Uggg... I don't have time for this. I don't think I'll be seeking the advice of a company who can't get a basic streaming app to work properly. Four different, common browsers on two different OS's and still buffering with no audio. Useless.
That's good. Also, for internal, need the right kind of staff -- would like to more hundreds of distributed folks into the core tools, and reallocate remaining people into discipline-specific activities. Might not be the same people though.
