Machine to Container (M2C) Teleports Existing Enterprise Apps to the Cloud
It's been a busy time for tech's ongoing infatuation with containers. Amazon
just announced EC2 Container Registry to simply container management. The new
Azure container service taps into Microsoft's partnership with Docker and
Mesosphere. You know when there's a standard for containers on the table
there's money on the table, too.
Everyone is talking containers because they reduce a ton of
development-related challenges and make it much easier to move across
production and testing environments and clouds. Containers are the technology
that, many believe, deliver on the long-promised portability in the cloud to
avoid vendor lock-in, and put developers, system administrators and their

VAA on Ulitzer
We've all been there. Minding our own business in a local establishment,
when a discussion's heat rises to the level of a sporting bet. Sides are
chosen, money plunked down, combatants await the reveal. Other than adult

Much has been written about applications that are stranded on Solaris 2.6/7
OS and rare-as-unicorn hardware. In fact, much of it has been written by me.
My trusty biz dev leader suggested that I take an ROI run on the topic in my
next blog .... which is this one. But I just can't bring myself to do it.
Why? Because I can't see building an elaborate spreadsheet showing how
AppZero is the best option, when the choice is a no brainer that my 7 year
old son could make.
Let's play the model out and you tell me if a spreadsheet would... (more)

2014 State of Readiness for Windows 2003 End of Support: Poll Results
Most IT administrators are painfully aware that Windows Server 2003 will
reach the end of extended support in July 2015. This is a big deal because
Windows Server 2003 has been a monster success since it was released 11 years
