In this episode I talk again (see episode #42) with ESM blogger John Willis. We talk about open source in IT management, but more than that, we talk about possible ways the data center landscape could change (“Infrastructure 2.0,” if you will): namely, Hardware-as-a-Service, which essentially means hosting your stuff behind a URL instead of on-premise (you, know, more or less). Whatever it may actually mean, it seems all this *aaS stuff is a big change waiting to happen when it comes to the way IT management is done.
For example, if a new business opened up and ran completely off URLs, what role would existing IT management thinking and vendors have? Not much, it seems.
