Cross-post - GigaOm: Coming Soon - the Cisco Blade Server?

I wrote a blog post this week on the possibility of Cisco moving into the enterprise data center by offering blade servers for their new Nexus 7000 switch. I think this move is inevitable given that Cisco, IBM, HP, Microsoft, VMware and others are fighting for account control in the enterprise data center. You can read my post here.

Cross-post: GigaOm: Save Music - Disconnect the Internet!

This topic has never failed to raise my blood pressure and get me worked up.... Why again should ISPs be responsible for people breaking the law using their infrastructure? Read my latest post on this topic here and get ready for some dripping sarcasm.

NASA and open source

It looks like open source is going where few people have gone before - to space, the final frontier. Coverage of NASA's use of Fedora and RHEL starts here on the ostatic blog. I can already picture the Vyatta system routing packets between planets, something that has been on the minds of networking geeks for over 8 years.

US recession would help open source

According to Sun, FOSS will be helped by the US recession. I guess there is always a silver lining! Read about the good part of the US recession here.

No wonder I like Europe so much....

The EU has announced that it will consider buying more open-source software. While this is clearly another gnarl at Microsoft, it also bodes well for EU business practices and economics. You can read some thoughts on this announcements over at Ostatic as well. Ah, how I look forward to Paris in the spring time - browsing the web with Firefox running on Fedora and connected to the Internet with Vyatta routers.

Cross-post on Ostatic

Om asked me to help christen his latest addition to the GigaOm network, the Ostatic blog with a post on open source telecom. That seemed right up my alley.... You can read my post here. In case you are wondering - I know I was - Ostatic is destined to be slang for "ecstatic with open source." That works for me!
