Data Center editorial on the road
SearchDataCenter.com's editorial staff is on the road. Me? I'm currently typing this blog entry from a motel in Wyoming, just on the Western side of the Bighorn Mountain Range. I'm five days into a cross country move from Boston to that data center promised land, Oregon. I'll be covering most of the West Coast events for the site, while your intrepid reporter Mark Fontecchio will remain in Boston.
Speaking of Mark, he's been on the road too, covering a recent IBM announcement in NYC about its x86 line. Fontecchio talked to some customers for the AMD-based x86 machines, including Vincent Stephens, vice president of technology at Move.com, who was very excited about the new machines.
Mark also cranked out a story on Indiana's BMV, which had migrated off a 1970s mainframe and consolidated three databases into one. Unfortunately, there was a glitch in the process, even to the point where police can't access accurate driver records.
Assuming my strained Honda Civic makes it, I'll talk to you all next week.
