Even though server proliferation can be partially addressed through virtualization, the usage of virtual and physical assets becomes complex to accurately assess or manage. Cost management is crucial to integrate into overall service management, especially with a move into cloud. This webcast discusses how to implement a financial management roadmap and the key requirements for cloud transparency-- the ability to allocate IT costs, usage, and value.

Disclaimer:- These steps mentioned here are quickest and least - that help achieve objective. 1. Enable NFS service 2. Disable the firewall (if firewall is required in that case enable only NFS ports) 3. Confirm NFS service is running by /sbin/service nfs status 4.

1. On VM console menu navigate to VM > Guest > Install /upgrade VMware Tools 2. open the VMware installables folder in terminal. Run command rpm -i VMwareTools-4.0.0-261974.tar.gz 3. Run /usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl The steps mentioned above usually work fine for 64 bit OS. However today I had to create a 32 bit RHEL6.1 OS. Faced couple of issues starting from :- 1. gcc not installed. Install the OS complaint rpm. 2. Kernel headers files not found in /usr/include. After a little googling, I found the solution to this issue.... [More]

Here at Pulse the best part, for
me, are the client conversations. The efforts of clients to understand our IBM
categories and for me to understand the customers’ scenario have led to
interesting exchanges and raised some strange questions. Talking to a business partner,
I found myself asking "What is the shape of your computation?" Does
it look like a banana or a dolphin ? A whale tail or a multi-drop jet ? A rhizome or a Pacific atoll map ?
Does it matter? It is
certainly a useful insight to visualise the general... [More]

Below is the original case study created by the internal Tivoli IT team and outlines our journey to the cloud.
With over 40 sites worldwide, IBM® Tivoli® IT faced high capital, management, and administration costs, and less than optimal efficiency. Lack of a virtualized IT environment limited the organization’s ability to reuse and share IT resources and best practices. Predominantly manual request workflows, and capacity management and administration processes drove up management costs and resulted in... [More]
