Virtualization and the Art of Patience with HP, IBM, Sun and Dell

Digesting x86 boxes with class and humor

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Meat Cast If an analyst's brain is vacuumed in a forest, does it make a noise? We answer that very question in Episode 6 - code-named Toe-Tapping Senator - of Semi-Coherent Computing.

This week's show has me pulling down a direct feed of server data and virtualization philosophy from Gabriel Consulting Group analyst Dan Olds. We talk about HP's surging blade server business, Dell's x86 server struggles and successes and the trend toward larger x86 boxes. Oh yeah, we discuss Microsoft maybe buying Citrix, different approaches to virtualization software and the future of computing too.

Along the way, Olds dishes out some of his research to help provide an idea as to where HP, Dell, Sun and IBM fail and aid their customers.

You must listen to this show if you like x86 servers and/or virtualization technology and/or want to maintain your self-respect.
