EMC Proven Professional Community Roundup – Week ending July 9, 2010

EMC logo

This post is cross-posted from the EMC Proven Professional Community on the EMC Community Network.

Here are some of the highlights from the past week in the Proven  Professional Community:

Knowledge Sharing Articles

The July articles were released last week. In case you missed it, topics ranged from DLP (data loss prevention) to email archiving and retention to deduplication to DR (disaster recovery). Check out this year’s publication schedule for more info.

There were also some good comments on one of this year’s winning articles: SAN Performance – Getting the Most ‘Bang’ for your Buck. If you have read the article, what do you think about John’s methodology for documenting, analyazing, remediating, and reviewing all elements of your SAN? (I thought it was a really good article – could have used something like this 5 years ago when I was working as a sys admin).

New Proven Professional Certifications announced

Blogs of interest to Proven Professionals

As usual, Proven Professionals are blogging about the cutting edge topics in the information and storage management industry:

Did I miss a good post? Let me know in the comments.


Please remember to mark your questions answered once they’ve been answered, and assign points to the people who helped you out. You never know when we’ll decide to do something with those points!

Why did you get Proven? Last call to participate in the poll.

What were you up to this week?

We’ve completed the first week of Q3. Who has been goaled to get a new Proven Professional certification this quarter? We’re here if you have questions on how to get started, ask away in the Proven Advisor: Ask Us section of the community.

That’s all I have for this week. Keep safe, and we’ll do it again next week!

the SAP and Intel Collaboratory

Driving Enterprise R&D: the SAP and Intel Collaboratory

I was in Northern Ireland today to announce the opening of a new joint laboratory with SAP focused on Cloud Computing and Sustainable IT. The SAP and Intel Collaboratory, as it’s called, will be located at SAP’s research center at the Titanic Quarter in Belfast.

The Collaboratory builds upon a history of very successful collaborations between the two companies, including the Co-Innovation Lab (COIL) in Palo Alto, California, the LinuxLab in Walldorf, Germany, and the Innovation Value Institute at the National University of Ireland. Intel and SAP are also partners on various European Framework 7 projects. The Collaboratory represents the natural progression of the research relationship between SAP and Intel. Its charter is to understand and drive enterprise computing in Europe such as Cloud Computing and Software-as-a-Service or SaaS. Using cloud-based services, businesses are beginning to “rent” IT, shifting capital expenditures on hardware to scalable, “pay-as-you-go” services. The implications of this shift touch almost every aspect of our products from the silicon microarchitecture through the software/solution stacks. The work at the Collaboratory will complement our internal research efforts in Cloud and Data Rich Computing, such as the Open Cirrus test bed.

Cloud computing is also driving up the size of datacenters which is leading to increased focus on energy efficiency and greater interest in sustainable IT. Beyond simply reducing the energy consumption of computing, sustainable IT applies the latest information and communication technologies to more efficiently manage the power grid, water supplies, and other large-scale resource management systems. The Collaboratory will be studying both: green “for” IT, and green “by” IT.

Additionally, through the Collaboratory we will work with academic institutions such as Queens University & University of Ulster to help develop more relevant research projects in these areas. I expect that as we build a network of industrial and academic research partners around the Collaboratory, it will emerge a leader in enterprise thinking in Europe.
