That vRealize report is finally up. I spend much of the time going over the strategic reasons for doing this and much less on the actual features. I figure there'll be more at the BCN VMworld so we'll look to cover it more in-depth then. Coincidently, I had an end-user inquiry today that talked all about vRealize and its competitors.

Tech & Work World
Jenkins is now sole focus for CloudBees as it drops PaaS and teams up with Pivotal | ZDNet - the PaaSes are droppin' like flies. It either means a winner is emerging, or the idea is shaky...or both!
OpTier – an opportunistic option for SAP? - An APM company looks to be biting the dust too, with SAP scooping up the assets.

Concerning VMware’s vCloud Air: It's all about choice - Trevor Pott goes to town on vAir. He likes it!

-HP buys Eucalyptus | CloudPundit: Massive-Scale Computing - Lydia at Gartner's take.

No fun today, just work. I'm going to go have a martini.
