that comment about the cable

turn_self_off's picture

that comment about the cable company seeing the net as yet another tv channel reminded me of the story about trying to describe the idea of package based networking to the "graybeards" at the phone company.

when they heard that the circuit got closed down after a package got past along it was as if one where to read the bible backwards. you basically didnt close down the circuit in the middle of a conversation!

one got to love the net, its forcing us to reexamine our social and cultural world again and again. just like the industrial revolution made it simpler to make physical stuff that everyone could use, the information revolution is making it simpler for everyone to create mental stuff for everyone to use. its as if one had given every kid the ability to understand morse code and a radio transmitter back then.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
