New SGE blog / Cisco Live! ticket contest

June 5, 2012 at 5:29 am PST

Long time Open MPI mailing list contributor and Open Source Grid Engine (OGE, previously known as SGE) maintainer Rayson Ho has just opened up a blog about Open Grid Engine kinds of things.

In one of his first posts, he’s giving away a free Cisco Live! pass for the June 10-14, 2012 event.  All you have to do is answer a “simple” MPI question (well, it might not be as simple as it looks :-) ).

As of yesterday, no one had answered the question correctly, so it’s still up for grabs!

Automation and IT-as-a-Service at Cisco Live in Melbourne

March 19, 2012 at 10:29 pm PST

We’re in the sporting and cultural capital of Australia this week for Cisco Live! Did you know that Melbourne is the only city in the world that has five international standard sporting facilities surrounding its central business district?

You might see a rugby match while in town, but I’d suggest you also tackle the Cisco Live World of Solutions expo.  We have an exciting demo to show you in the Cisco Data Centre booth: Intelligent Automation for Cloud, a key component of the Unified Management pillar of our Unified Data Center platform.

Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud is a cloud management and orchestration software solution that complements Cisco UCS and Nexus to provide self-service on-demand provisioning of IT resources.  This new solution is becoming as ubiquitous as the sporting facilities in Melbourne.  Cisco partners including Alphawest / Optus, CSC, and VCE are also showcasing our Intelligent Automation for Cloud software in action at their booths.

Essentially, this solution will help you tackle the challenge of deploying infrastructure-as-a-service – and adopt an IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) strategy. Here’s a short analyst video on delivering ITaaS with Cisco Intelligent Automation:
