Re: Not so for the SQL Community
How's that Technet thing going?. Oh dear it isn't.
I was recently on business in the US, and everybody I talked too about iPad, Surface etc, all agreed the Surface is a load of cr#p !
Am I missing something?
Are you sure this information is accurate and has not been garbled. Microsoft's proxy is very flakey!
Re: Always a PC
Don't think it will happen, but if Microsoft does not get over its VMware ( we will kill you off like we did with Novell ) current obsession, it will surely be finished off.
VMware shrinks + Google Acquisition of VMware = End of Microsoft.
MS works with VMware + MS concentrate on Office, Exchange = Microsoft survival
Along with Linux survival.
Easy maths :-)
Re: To coin a phrase
If any of the other vendors were top dogs, you would simply say the same thing about them. Personally I am glad that Apple gets this vote, so it keeps the others on their toes. Competition is the best thing. I am glad Apple, Google, VMware, Microsoft exist but I do not want one of them to be totally dominant.
Of the aforementioned, Microsoft are always the one that preaches they want kill others off! (Ballmer bang tables etc). Glad that c*ck has gone!
Go VMware go :-)
Apple must survive
I will buy everything apple and I do not care about cost or functionality versus Samsung or Microsoft. What else would I spend my money on?
Why?, because we need Apple, VMware and Google to survive as companies to keep Mickeysoft down. Competition is healthy.
Apple is Rolls Royce...............enough said.
Foot - Gun - Pull Trigger :-)
First you announce the death of Technet subscription. Are you sure Mr Microsoft........errr okay then just hold this gun, that's right point at your foot, and pull trigger.Yes it hurts does it not?,
but Apple, Red Hat and VMware did not feel a thing :-)
Too late. All my customers want:
Re: And Microsoft's share price continues to trickle forever downwards
Indeed, they played pontoon with Hyper-V, Azure and Windows 8, and went bust!
Ballmer - deal me some better cards!
Re: Still need them here.
Oh go on tell us who you work for, we could pass it on to Dell .......grin :-)
Rack space problem not VMware
You should have worded it as "the problem with VMware from Rackspace is........."
This is not a problem with VMware (and its hybrid cloud) as it will happily run RHEL 6. This is a Rackspace business protocol problem.
Desperate MS it seems
All a bit desperate, this move by Microsoft.
Oh BTW, why are we not moving to SCVMM and Hype-V,
because 50 clicks, 10 reboots, and numerous Powershell script runs = 5 clicks and two reboots in VMware.
MS just don't get it!
I know many people that would rather buy an iPad than a Surface, just because it is Microsoft trying to barge into others market. If Microsoft would just be satisfied with dominating the Office/Applications/Windows space and stop trying to rule the world by trying to take out Apple, VMware and Google in which stills makes them billions of dollars, then people would not detest them.
It is in everybody's interest to have many companies competing as this increases quality and technological advances.
Ballmer & Co are just greedy dictators who need to grow up to be honest.
To be honest, I know many friends and techy colleagues that are quite happy to convert MS Word into PDF and iTunes board them onto their iPad for reference library stuff.
To edit, they use a laptop. The age of a single device to do all is not with us yet (or it could be a dream?).
Taxi for Ballmer - one can only hope. Oh wait a minute, stay there Stevie boy your making a right mess.
Re: Looks like the layoffs helped too
Hyper-v is free but no good on its own. Add the required System Center suite of products in the mix and MS suddenly becomes more expensive managing comparative virtualisation workloads plus configuration management overhead.
The old MS trick to get more out of you...............you mugs!
Opening many fronts - oh dear
Playing catch up with Apple.
Playing catch up with VMware.
Opening many fronts and spreading themselves thin amongst a reorganisation within.
Oh dear, another historical dictator tried that and failed.
And cue, vSphere 6 to finally put sword to Hype-V ?
Amazon and Openstack to severely dent Azure growth?
Have they anything left?
The Disruptor is back - again
Good old VMware I say. When the majority of VMware bashers have been mentioning their downfall, VMware answers with another "IT Arena Disrupter". This will send shockwaves through the channel.
Buy your of the shelf solutions - Yes really :-) Why have hundreds of engineers to build it.
Floyd Storm !!
The NSA culprits should be strapped to a chair and made to listen to Pink Floyd at 100 decibels. Wait a minute, that looks familiar LOL.
Storm Thorgerson and Pink Floyd created DSOTM cover before her dad's design I believe?
And they want us to move from Vmware to Hyper-V and their Private Cloud!.
Patch Tuesday = kill your cloud.
In the know:
Quality is important.
VMware NSX = Multi hypervisor and Openstack linkage.
NVGRE = Only Hyper-V ;-(
It's simple, the free argument does not hold water. I have many customers that would rather pay than endure vendor lock in and pay for it at a later date.
Nothing in this world is free.
LOL = playing catch-up. Unlike NVGRE it will be more advanced, more likely be furnished with advanced firewalling capabilities and have full integration and tuning with other products in its ecosystem.......... and oh it will work more reliably under heavy workloads. VMware raising the bar yet again :-)
Your Missing the Point
The reason Azure is flaky, is due to rushed implementation, backup process failures and a general slap dash approach to cloud by Microsoft!.
Build your Linux and Windows on VMware Cloud Director accompanied by robust DR concepts and and a more professional attitude to delivering Cloud properly and the situation will be much more robust if any of the componenets fail.
The whole Azure, Hyper-V, Windows Server 2012, SCCM is a rushed coded cobbled together ecosystem that is going to burn all the MS shop "follow like sheep" fanbois!. This will not be the last time customers will suffer long downtimes in all type (Azure, Hyprid, Public, Private) MS cloud mash ups!.
Pay the money and you get reliability. Its a no-brainer.
Microsoft got left behind, panicked and delivered a whole load of rubbish. Their salesman are spouting bullshit and huge exageration. And this is the company that also wants us to put faith in Hyper-V 2012!
I don't think so MS$. Openstack, VMware, Hadoop, Apple, agility and mobility are the big things again for 2013.
Your Apple doom and Gloom is flawed!
Yes Apple has huge competition from Android and Microsoft and ther model needs adjusting.
You forget Microsoft have come back because they are a $260 billion dollar company. Apple is just a temporary wounded animal worth $450 billion! They are not going to take all this lying down from Samsung, Microsoft and all other competitors.
They will re-invent, re-innovate, headhunt the best in the game and come back greater than ever.
Money talks and makes waves.
