Welcome to the first tidbits post of 2010!
The first item comes from this post about abandoning old data center models in the quest for green-ness (greenocity?). I do agree that the rate of innovation will increase in 2010 but that doesn’t mean that everything done before has to be abandoned wholesale. Pick the best of the old, integrate with the new, and don’t reinvent the wheel just because it’s last year’s wheel.
Second comes an article on the 7 deadly sins of IT managers. The one that struck me was sin #4. How many data center failures did we see in 2009 where the data center provider had no idea they had a major outage until customers screamed?
