VMWare liberate the server by making it independent from the hardware. Once you virtualize it, it can run on any x86 hardware. Provision become short from months to minutes.
Now NICIRA will do the same to the network by doing network virtualization. Network will be free form vendor lock down. So long the switches is IP connected, NICIRA wil virtualize it.
By the way, in the website written there NICIRA by VMWARE.
www.tintri.com is as purpose-built storage for virtualization. Quote what Kieran Harty say " TINTRI is the storage for Software Defined Datacentre". It simplify the whole thing for Virtualization from storage to backup management.
IP PBX server are the main target for hacking activity because it involve dollar and cents. It need to be secured. This device can at least mitigate the attack even before the attackers entering the server itself. This is very simple plug and play device.

http://ardrone2.parrot.com/ , this is their official website. Can purchase from here. You can control the airborne drone using ipad/iphone. The flight can be recorded using 720p camera mounted on the drone itself.
They even had GPS that can be attached to the drone. You can set the GPS path and the drone will follow it. Useful for patrolling factory, farm or even rubber estate
Fire brigade can use is to do surveillance or fact finding on a building during their rescue mission.

KUALA LUMPUR: Nutanix Inc - a US-based company that sells all-in-one compute and storage infrastructure for virtualised datacentres - is setting up a customer support centre in Malaysia this year.
The move is in line with the company's plans to rapidly expand operations into the Asia Pacific market. It expects to derive at least 30% to 35% of its revenue from the region by its financial year 2014-2015.
"South-East Asia is going to be a significant source of business for Nutanix because there are a lot of cloud computing and virtualisation growth happening in these countries, particularly in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand," said Sudheesh Nair, vice-president of worldwide sales at Nutanix Inc.
He was speaking to Bytz on the fringes of the Interactive VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) Design workshop in Kuala Lumpur, that was organised by Datapath Networks Sdn Bhd, an authorised solutions partner for Nutanix in this country.
Sudheesh described Nutanix's products as being software defined and said that these merged server and storage functions into a single piece of hardware.
He said this kind of infrastructure would greatly benefit enterprises because it meant that they would no longer have to maintain a physical storage area network (SAN), typically the most complex and costly part of datacentre architecture.
Ken Too, technical director at Datapath Networks, said the solutions help customers eliminate expensive network storage. "This will result in an immediate 40% to 60% reduction in capital expenditure while providing highly advanced shared-storage capabilities," he said.
Aside from the cost savings, Sudheesh said, another advantage of using an all-in-one solution was that companies could easily scale the size of their operations up or down at any given time without impacting the overall network performance.
"These factors make us a perfect fit for hybrid cloud infrastructure," he said, referring to systems that possess a combination of both public and private cloud-computing features. Sudheesh said Nutanix would begin offering its products to companies in the financial, manufacturing, and oil and gas sectors first. It would later extend its services to the healthcare and technology sectors as well.
Both Nutanix and Datapath Networks anticipate the emergence of new datacentre architectural trends within the region this year as a result of the entry of Nutanix's products into the market.
"We foresee the trend of converged compute and storage into datacentre building blocks continuing to grow in this region. This architecture will allow end users to start with what they need now and to add additional blocks as their needs grows in order to scale out a single system," Too said.
Nutanix Complete Cluster products are priced at US$160,000 (RM480,000) and upwards. For more information, go to www.nutanix.com.
Meet Double by Double Robotics. http://www.doublerobotics.com/
Technology behind is complex and was made simple, using available technology already familiar to mass human market.
Imagine, the is so many creative application that we can use with this technology.
In Malaysia for example, we already have Tesco eshop where you can shop online and have the grocery delivered to your home with a click of mouse.
Tesco may add this Double Robotics in it store where customer may roam their store using this and shop around as if they were there in actual store. Nice right!!
Goverment sector may use this at their front office, client just log in using ipad or computer and interact with government official.
Doctors can have one in their room, patient can consult for medication, doesn't matter from wherever they are.
Lecturers and teachers can also benefit from this technology, providing remote or distance learning.
At the simplest application Double can be guards at our house.
There is so many application open up with this Robots, we just need to use our imagination
At this point of writing, they are only open for pre-order at usd 2499. Quite high for a house guard right.
