looking at if large enterprise and legacy storage systems are dead, along
with what todays EMC VMAX 10K updates mean.
Thus on January 14 2013 it is time for a new EMC Virtual Matrix (VMAX) model
10,000 (10K) storage system. EMC has been promoting their January 14 live
virtual event for a while now. January significance is that is when (along
with May or June) is when many new systems, solutions or upgrades are made on
a staggered basis.
Historically speaking, January and February, along with May and June is when
you have seen many of the larger announcements from EMC being made. Case in
point, back in February of 2012 VFCache was released, then May (2012) in Las
Vegas at EMCworld there were 42 announcements made and others later in the

Mergers & Acquisitions on Ulitzer
With only the ‘you may now kiss the bride’ custom to follow, the
Oracle/Sun marriage (or dare I say Sun/Oracle) is now finally complete. After
months of legal wrangling which has caused nothing but embarrassment and
dwindled Sun’s stature within the market sphere, reports also came out that
half of Sun's 27,000 staff will be made redundant. Thus initial indications
are clear that Oracle, known for its past agnosticism to open source has an
eye for the merger being based on maximizing profit. In the meantime Sun’s
competitors are probably smiling wryly as the delay of the merger played into
their immediate interests but what threats and challenges does this
partnership now pose to the once great open source vendor which did so much
for developing the tech and e-commerce industry.
One thing which Oracle will most probably do is addres... (more)
As part of my prep for the talk we give at JavaOne 2012, I built a WebSocket
app using JavaFX 2.2 front-end with NetBeans 7.2 and the brand new JavaFX
Scene Builder 1.0.
The tools were a pleasant surprise, they were pretty straight-forward to use.
Most of the Oracle tutorials were helpful too, although I couldn’t find
signs of an active and extensive JavaFX developer community out there.
The app I wanted to build consumes the same data source as the lightning
fast Kaazing portfolio demo.
This video demonstrates what it looks like in the development environment, as
implementation of the Kaazing portfolio demo.
Step 1 – Creating a JavaFX App
First, I created a new project: JavaFX > JavaFX FXML Application.
Step 2 – Defining the UI
Then, using the new JavaFX Scene Builder, I created the grid layout I wante... (more)
The advent of SOA and standard-base Web services together with Internet based
delivery models has provided the essential base for facilitating new software
platform innovations. One of these innovations is a breakthrough software
componentization technique that we have coined Service Oriented Programming
(SOP). While SOA focuses on communication between systems using
“service operations,” SOP provides a new technique to build agile
application modules using in-process, native service operations as the
“units of assembly.” Instead of using services just to go across
systems, SOP provides a model-driven technique that uses an in-memory image
of services to run an entire application. Since these in-memory services can
transparently externalize through Web service standards or any proprietary
protocol, SOP automatically brings SOA inside the appl... (more)

iPhone Apps on Ulitzer
iPhone Apps on Ulitzer - The Apple iTablet or iSlate is due to be shown off
to the world January 27th, and unleashed on us sometime in March.
The blogosphere has been buzzing about the topic. Joe Wilcox of BetaNews.com
said “The world doesn’t need an Apple Tablet, or any other” (full post
MG of TechCrunch followed up with “The World Doesn’t Need Someone Telling
Us What We Don’t Need In Tech” (full post here). I think both writers
make some good points, but I wanted to give my thoughts, and ask the readers
of CTOvision theirs.
The Apple Tablet is rumored to cost $1000. So the first word that comes to my
mind is “overpriced.” When you can purchase a decent netbook for under
$300, a solid ultra-portable 12-14″ (laptop) for $500, and a good business
laptop for under $700…why would you ever pay $1000 for a simple tablet?
