2014 Conference Round Up ~ John Alday, Cima Solutions Group

Last week marked the 10th conference I've attended this year

SXSW 2014 Recap - Mindful, Good, & Creative

Have You Bought Your Last Server?

The Egg and I restaurant opened up in Flower Mound, TX last year.  Great place for breakfast or lunch if you are in the area.  About a mile or so away is an Einstein Bros Bagels - I'm a fan of the poppy seed bagel.  And a mile or so away from there is a First Choice Emergency Room.

TCO Comparison - SVC vs V7000

I’m a big fan of storage virtualization.  Have been for a long time.  The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings are too significant to not be.  From reduced hardware expenditures through commoditization of the storage components to the benefits acquired by thin provisioning – you are going to spend less and get a lot more.  Bring in the reduced management costs of a virtualized storage environment and its a slam dunk.  It’s why the IBM SAN Volume Controller (SVC) has been such a great product for our clients.

Happy New Year's

Happy New Year to all of our partners! Here"s wishing you all the prosperity that your hard work can deliver!

Cloud Computing for Texas ISD Budget Cuts

The Texas budget crisis looms large for school districts.  For those of you that don’t live in Texas and haven’t turned on the news (or gotten past the weather news!), the biennium shortfall is upwards of $10 billion.  That’s right $10 billion, with a b.  If you consider the fact that there are roughly 5 million school children in Texas, you are looking at having to reduce the budget by $1,000 per child.

Anatomy of a Google Apps Sale

My 8th grade son came to me the other day and asked if I could buy a copy of Microsoft Office 2010.  "It's a great deal for students, Dad!".  Apparently his teacher had told him his version on the Mac was incompatible with documents he was sending out to his class.   My wife was a co-conspirator "John, he needs it or he won't get his work done.  And can we get a Mac Book Pro for me?"  I decided to teach my son the current economics of cloud computing and said that would have to come out of HIS budget not mine.
