I just spent 3 days in Bangalore for a board meeting. Staying in south
Bangalore around JP Nagar and Jayanagar area feels like the old Bangalore of
yesteryears – greenery all around, spring flowers, no high rise apartment
buildings, and comparatively more tranquil ambiance. Once I went to north,
around Whitefield area, the new Bangalore intimidates you – huge apartment
complexes, no trees, chaotic traffic and what not. All over town, one notices
the construction of the new metro – the overhangs spoil the beauty of the
city. Of course the area around electronic city is all concrete jungle and
heavy traffic. The airport is so far away, it takes at least 1.5 to 2 hours
in mild traffic to get to the city. Moving around the city is non-trivial and
everyone warns you of the rush hours in the morning and evening.
We looked at some new ventures to get services to the people ... (more)

Cloud Computing on Ulitzer
Back in June, we released the very first security hardened virtual machine
images for the Amazon Web Services Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) environment.
These original images were based upon the OpenSolaris 2008.11 release and
were configured in accordance with the guidelines published by Sun the Center
for Internet Security.
Since its initial release, we have provided an update to offer this image in
the European Region. In August, we took another step forward with the release
of a security-enhanced image based upon the OpenSolaris 2009.06 release.
This time of year is a favorite for children of all ages – I happen to be
one of these kids – in part because of the television programs that are
shown around Christmas.
A Charlie Brown Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Rudolph the Red
Nose Reindeer, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, have been favorites of
mine since TV went from exclusively black and white to poor quality color.
This is no coincidence as these programs were made in the mid 1960’s.
As I was watching this year, it occurred to me that if at this time in
history Christmas had not yet been established, if so... (more)

Cloud Interoperability Magazine on Ulitzer
As we end 2009 and prepare for the next decade there seems to be a nagging
question, a question that I have to say, I frequently answer without any
concrete proof. A question that seems to be becoming more important then
ever. The question is simple yet profound in its implications as a global
citizen, is cloud computing actually environmentally friendly?
First, I will admit, I am among the group of cloud advocates who routinely
claim that cloud computing is green, I say this without any proof or evidence
to support my statement. I make t... (more)
