Cartoon: Pee Into This Cup & Hand Over Your Twitter Login Info

first_imgRelated Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… To the list of things you worry about when you’re writing a blog post or updating your status (“How will this affect my Technorati ranking?” “Will Wil Wheaton finally retweet me?” “Is this going to get me on a no-fly list?”), you can now add this: “What’s my boss going to think?”More and more employers want to know what you’re doing, not just in your cubicle, behind the register or out in the field, but on the Net. They’re trying to find out if your social media antics are going to reflect poorly on them. Should that be any of their business? After all, it’s your Facebook account/blog/Twilight fan wiki; how is what you’re doing any of their concern?But consider the summer contractor fired from his job with the District of Columbia after he tweeted derogatory remarks about a local neighbourhood and talked about loafing on the job. Set aside the confession of misconduct, and you still have the issue of a worker publicly slagging the people he’s supposed to be serving.The slope gets a little more slippery once we start dealing with people who criticize their employer on their blogs… or just discuss their job without permission.Waaaay down at the bottom of that slope is June’s social-media-fail-of-the-month, the City of Bozeman, which required job applicants to provide the usernames and passwords for their social network profiles. (That policy has since been rescinded.)Is the problem that we still haven’t figured out what this space is yet? We sometimes treat it like it’s a pub where we’re venting with friends, saying outrageous things with complete impunity; some of the powers that be treat it as though every word we utter online ought to be lifted from the corporate annual report. Just where do employees and employers draw the line? 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#Cartoons#web More Noise to Signal rob cottinghamlast_img read more

BlueLock Lets You Customize Your Cloud Infrastructure

first_imgIf you’re a software-as-a-service company you are probably thinking about how cloud computing can save you money and time. The same thing is true for departments in the enterprise that wants to spin up a new service for customers.We had a chance to sit down with BlueLock, one of the leaders in cloud-based infrastructure providers. Their solutions range from quick provisioning using an online form, to becoming your infrastructure team for mission-critical applications. BlueLock represents a part of the trend in virtualization that not only extends physical servers, but allows companies to leverage infrastructure investments to meet the needs of application developers.One of the benefits of cloud computing is the ability to optimize the experience of experts and save money in hosting applications. However, one of the areas that is terminally difficult in the enterprise is configuration management in between the layers of OS, storage, security and network. This is getting more and more focus from the biggest providers in IT – Cisco, Microsoft, EMC, NetApp – but where the rubber hits the road, IT leaders are doing a majority of the work tuning configurations to find the right mix of infrastructure to meet their needs.Custom is King Fully outsourced configuration management of the infrastructure is one of the areas that BlueLock offers. One benefit of this service is the opportunity for an enterprise to configure a cloud to be both production ready, and also have a mirror environment for testing and development. Not all applications are created equally and it is a key part of the job to optimize across layers.This area seems ripe for change and the future is unknown in the sense that today it is unclear which traditional infrastructure tools will evolve into the holy grail of “one click” deploy-and-customize solutions. So, if you want a solution that is cloud hosted today and configurable, it’s worth giving BlueLock a look. This week at VMware Partner Exchange announced the BlueLock CloudSuite. One key feature in the mix is a tailored selection of infrastructure environments.Instead of just cloning infrastructure, BlueLock focuses on tailoring it around the successful patterns we’ve seen in the enterprise. Additionally, its offerings are based on VMware virtualization technology. The mix of cloud computing with customization seem like an ideal marriage for IT managers looking to build towards the cloud. Is customization a key capability that you look for in a cloud hosting provider for your applications?Photo credits: thebestofmyself & Phillip Pessar Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloudcenter_img Tags:#cloud#Data Centers#saas#Vendors#Virtualization Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… mike kirkwoodlast_img read more
