Not that I ever do this ;) but if you think about the process to download a movie. To do it for free, I first have to find the files from a torrent tracking portal. Then I have to know how to use a download client. Next I have to check the file is what I want, as well as scan it for any malware. If I’ve done all this correctly I can watch my movie, and even then with my luck the quality is probably terrible. My wife on the other hand actually values her time, so she uses Netflix. All she does is browse their catalog and have the movie stream in near real time; they even have HD!
I am pleased to annouce that the 4.7 Patch Bundle was released this week. The patch bundle contains several fixes...
I was talking with a co-worker the other day and we were chatting about Novell Operations Center, specifically Experience Manager (previously known as Business Experience Manager - BEM). We then remembered a story he told me a long time ago that I thought would be interesting to share.
From time to time we run across situations where the end user needs to grab a piece of information from within Novell Operations Center and add it to an email, a change request or some other application. While Operations Center can be customized to do some of these tasks in a more automated manner, there are some adhoc situations where the user would just like to grab the details and use it.

Our objective to create a single Virtual Machine that runs Novell Service Desk so that we can explore the capabilities of this new solution from Novell. To do this we will
a) Create a new VM using SLES JeOS
b) Upload Sun Java and Novell Service Desk installer into the VM
c) Perform the installation and start Novell Service Desk
d) Load a browser and give it the URL for Novell Service Desk
In the previous blog(s) I showed an example of how you can automate the building of the server views so they are data driven and self maintaining. The next step is to put the rules in place to control how state (Critical, Major, Minor, etc) are propagated up from the different categories and control how they impact the individual servers.

Novell Operations Center meets WorkloadIQ - Monitoring and Measuring Intelligently
What a fast year it has been and what a crazy last couple of weeks for us on the Business Service Management team at Novell. Wednesday was launch day for us and a very exciting time! A time to reflect as well as I spoke to many in the press this week always being asked just what this Business Service Management technology is, what do companies need, how does it differ from the competition, what is your longevity secret sauce and what makes it different than all the rest with this WorkloadIQ approach. I found this intriguing and a very exciting time for the technology in the days of mixed physical, virtual and cloud environments.
