Long Term Support for Linux from Oracle, Plus Ksplice!

The Virtual World
Oracle Linux now has 10 year support! Plus, a 30 day free trial of Ksplice may intice corporate customers that need 100% uptime to consider it for their systems!

Salesforce also raised its revenue projections for 2012, to a rise of 30 percent year on year. If these reports hold up elsewhere, it would seem that…

Veeam Adds Hyper-V Infrastructure Support Slowly but surely, Microsoft's Hyper-V hypervisor is taking over the SMB server virtualization market. The company has been developing its server virtualization technology by adding high-end features to compete with VMware in the enterprise space, but it's the bargain basement where Hyper-V is finding its true sweet spot. That's what Veeam has noticed, anyway. The Ohio-based virtual infrastructure management company flogs its Veeam One management products to SMBs that use VMware.
