The IT sector is changing rapidly. Pressure to move to fast, inexpensive COTS gear, the cloud -- private and public -- much denser technologies, flash memory, and super-fast networks all are having impacts. What we are seeing is a migration toward smaller in-house setups, the transition of legacy architectures to private clouds, and the growth of mega-datacenters for cloud providers.
Infrastructure expert and blogger Jim O'Reilly joins The Enterprise Cloud Site community and editor James Connolly for a discussion about the ongoing changes in datacenter technology and concepts, and about how those developments have an impact on private and hybrid cloud initiatives.
Whatever your approach to business, the underlying infrastructure may be changing, and Jim O'Reilly has the expertise to look at what those changes mean. Here are some of the questions we will address:
How much of the datacenter will be outsourced to the cloud?
Will technology shrink equipment faster than installation growth?
Where do containerized datacenters fit in?
Will green power be important for in-house datacenters? For mega-datacenters?
Will we need much faster WAN links to make hybrid cloud approaches work?
Airtime is 3 pm (EDT) on Wednesday, May 28. Join us then.

Justin interviews Chris MacPhee, founder of the Suburban Camping Company, who had a big idea, something that would change the world … or at least the neighborhood.
Chris MacPhee lost his job as a regional manager for a retail fixturing company when it closed 4 years ago. The economy had created big changes and he didn’t see his job coming back. Losing it became the push Chris needed to focus on his dream to outfit suburbia with glamorous canvas tents and create backyard camp outs complete with cots, lanterns, sleeping bags and s’mores. One year later, together with his wife, Kella, Suburban Camping Company was launched and is today a successful, thriving business.

“Think of this as 34 new homeless individuals and families in the county every day,” Johnson said in a statement.
The count, done by the Santa Cruz-based research team Applied Survey Research, found that nearly 13,000 people in the county have been homeless at one point over the past year, including 33 percent of people who said that job loss was the primary reason that they were homeless.
Numbers from COTS confirm this alarming trend, according to Johnson. COTS reported that 39 percent of the people seeking shelter, food and other crucial services are homeless for the first time. In addition, 53 people and more than 20 families are waiting to get into COTS right now.

The Homeless Healer, Versandra Kennebrew: Five years ago I lived in Peggy's Place, a COTS facility for homeless women and children in transition. I was depressed, scared and surrounded by darkness. "The Shelter" saved my life. I was able to rest and be rejuvenated as my place of refuge provided me a safe space to be healed. ~ Author John R. Williams of "The Reunion": His first work; a children’s short story and coloring book about the bond between father and son entitled Daddy and Me.
This book drive kicks off a goal to raise $10,000 in the next year for the White Cots School Centre in Kenya and to supply them with all types of books - fiction and non-fiction, especially text books. Each book costs 40 cents to send to Africa. It costs us 40 cents per book to ship them to the Minnesota BFA warehouse. That's why we ask for a minimum donation of $1.00. To donate
