« Response to comments from Alessandro Perilli blog | Main | Paul Maritz Keynote at EMCWorld Mentions Oracle Performance on VMWare »

May 14, 2009



A really interesting green computer technology I found is Userful Multiplier. It's where multiple people can use the same computer at the same time each with their own monitor, mouse and keyboard. This saves a lot of electricity and e-waste. A company called Userful recently set a virtualization world record by delivering over 350,000 virtual desktops to schools in Brazil. They have a free 2-user version for home use too. Check it out: userful.com

Thank you for your very intersting comments. There is no doubt that ORACLE tries to force customers to adopts its own products. But, by doing this, ORACLE plays a dangerous game. Some clients may refuse to see their choices dictated by another company. Some other ones, especially the smaller clients may not have the manpower needed to operate two virtualization softwares with the same degree of proficiency. These clients are the smaller ones. But smaller clients also tend to be more numerous than larger ones. So ORACLE takes the risk to endagner its relationship with many of them and this may have serions mid and long term consquences.
