The essential guide to IT transformation

This is the first Infosmack Deep Dive podcast, hosted by Nigel Poulton, the infrastructure inquisitor, with co-host Rick Vanover and guests Kevin Houston and Bob Plankers.

The idea of the Deep Dive came from Nigel who wanted to hear more in-depth material about specific technologies. We told him, "OK, Go!" and here we are...

Among the topics Nigel and guests discuss this week are:

  • The prevailing assumptions about blade and rack servers,
  • the I/O capabilities of blades and racks,
  • scalability concerns
  • management considerations
  • relative cost of server technologies
  • and a wish list for future server products.

On with the show.
