Not having recorded for a couple of weeks, we had a huge crop of IT related news to go over:

  • John starts out talking about encountering iTricity folks in Europe (they partner with IBM for cloud computing) and his recent cloud-talk while in Europe.
  • We go over the VMWare tooling released by Hyperic, Zenoss, PacketTrap, and then the GroundWork releases.
  • In talking about VMWare, I talk about a recent briefing with recently un-stealthed Replicate.
  • I re-cap some interesting items from Spiceworld, Spicework‘s first user conference.
  • John tries to pry some information about recently signed up RedMonk client Cloudera from me, but we instead talk about Hadoop in general.
  • John then re-caps a conversation he had with the openQRM gang. This gets us into a discussion of the disconnect between monitoring, management, and provisioning: you rarely find those features under the same vendor-roof.
  • Finally, we go over the Microsoft BizSpark offering and how it could relate to IT management startups.

And, there’s more of course – like why companies might actually benefit from being in stealth mode rather than “flailing” about in public. We also spend time talking about pulling in Web 2.0 IT management innovations (and IT in general) into the enterprise.

Disclosure: IBM, Hyperic, Zenoss, GroundWork, Spiceworks, Cloudera, and Microsoft are clients. See the RedMonk client list for other clients mentioned.
