With 1 day left before the beginning of Partnerworld Lino Donati shares his thoughts on the autonomic village.
Lino, What do you think about the AC village and what do you hope to demonstrate?
The AC village is an excellent idea. It is often difficult to demonstrate how autonomics work behind the scenes to ensure smooth IT operations in a presentation. The village allows IBM AC partners to demonstrate their products' capabilities in a more visible and compelling manner.
And how does autonomic capability help differentiate your product?
Corente's AWB autonomic capabilities were designed into the basic architecture from the start. One of the design goals of the product was to allow businesses to spend less time and money configuring, managing and changing their wide-area networks - particularly in cases when they need to create secure, monitored application connections with business partners and companies in their value chain. The ability to seamlessly provide automatic failover to backup datacenters, networks, service providers, gateways or application servers is one of the autonomic capabilities that differentiates us from most networking vendors.
Great Lino! See you at the village!
