So Dell has introduced ARM servers for hyperscale/cloud applications. This is very, very interesting, but also quite puzzling. Will they sell these to “regular” customers? And who would buy them?
This week’s Tech Field Day roundtable discussion is an audio chat on the subject of Symantec’s VMworld-related announcements. This discussion occurred prior to the official announcement of these three products and was part of our joint effort to support VMworld, including Symantec’s sponsorship of our “Get Away to VMworld” contest.
The annual VMworld gathering in San Francisco has become the central event for virtualization-related companies, but not everyone can attend this must-go event. So we contacted some of our favorite technology companies about sponsoring a contest to send another deserving person to the show!
Trade shows are a veritable swag-fest, some with great loot and some with junk. I’ve been critical of the booth babe and chotchkie phenomenon, but my friend Kevin Houston has a better suggestion: Donate your (useful) swag like backpacks and pens to school kids in need.
We were pleased to be invited to attend HP’s annual Tech Forum event, held in Las Vegas on June 21-24, 2010. Among the many announcements made by HP, the massive DL980 and new blade servers stood out, along with the StorOnce data deduplication technology. Since not everyone could attend this event, we recorded some video from the show floor to give a feeling of being there.
Hereâ€™s my roundup of all the posts, pictures, video and comments from the HP Blades Tech Day.
