Our Economy Ain't Dead Yet
All week, the financial news has been bleak. Lehman Brothers saying uncle,
stocks falling faster than a base jumper, the doom-and-gloom analysts getting
unlimited air time...
But I was living in a different world. At VMworld, there were some 10,000 customers
looking to transform their shops, over 200 third parties creating a brand-new
and vibrant market, and a company, VMware, looking to do revolutionary things
-- doing it all with a fair bit a class and savvy.
Virtualization also offers us a way out of this economic and even energy mess.
Through the massive centralization of servers, PCs, networks and storage that
virtualization allows, we can save mega megawatts. The energy saves are stupendous,
as are the hardware and management economics.
