There’s a difference between having a cloud and using it

By Larry Walsh

What is that orchid purple pizza box doing in the data center? Turns out the overnight shift hasn’t left the debris from its dinner in a server rack. It’s actually the IBM WebSphere Cloudburst Appliance.

Here’s the idea: You’ve created a cloud computing environment for your business. Great, but what can you do with it? Can you quickly get an application up and running? Can you efficiently provision the virtual resources it needs? Many businesses are creating internal clouds, only to run into the obstacles of provisioning and managing the applications they want to run on them. In a corporate environment, it can take weeks to get an application up and running. And you know how it is with project delays. One delay causes other projects to be pushed back – and the wasted dollars multiply.

Enter the orchid purple pizza box. The IBM WebSphere Cloudburst Appliance was created to help you put your cloud to efficient use. It can drastically cut the time it takes to get an application up and running – think minutes, not weeks. You’ll have a chance to hear more about this useful appliance in a Webcast, “Application Infrastructure in the Cloud,” that will take place at noon (Eastern time) on October 13, 2010.

It will be an interactive Webcast – you’ll have a chance to pose the questions that are on your mind to the experts: Phil Schaadt, president and CTO of the Haddon Hill Group, a firm specializing in IT integration, and George Knoll, IBM WebSphere specialist. Hope you’ll join us.

  20. I’d also like to state that most of those who find themselves
    without the need of health insurance are typically students, self-employed and people who are not working.
    More than half from the uninsured are really under
    the age of 35. They do not experience they are wanting health insurance simply because they’re young
    and also healthy. The income is often spent on homes, food,
    plus entertainment. Many people that do represent the working class either whole or
    as a hobby are not given insurance by their work so
    they proceed without because of the rising
    price of health insurance in the country. Thanks for the suggestions you reveal through your
