Server virtualisation’s relevance to BFSI

This is with reference to the Server Update 2006 articles in the Network Magazine’s August 2006 edition. These articles have been highly informative.

This is specially the case with the article pertaining to virtualisation of a server. In today’s IT infrastructure, factors like storage & network (multiple operating systems) are important to ensure lower costs while increasing utilisation on a single server.

This is more so considering the infrastructure strategies that have to be in play today accompanied by the increase in IT budgets at all levels. These will be highly useful to all sectors, mostly in the BFSI segment where we have to consider RoI, business targets, security and consumer trends.

Thank you for the encouraging feedback. As you have rightly mentioned, server virtualisation especially that on the x86 platform, will be quite useful for the BFSI segment.

Traditionally, the BFSI segment has favoured virtualised environments. Many organisations from this vertical have been faithful to the virtualisation capabilities offered by RISC platforms for many a year now.

With the advent of virtualisation on the x86, the BFSI vertical has one more option on the server virtualisation front. The scene is no doubt bound to get even better as server virtualisation on x86 matures.

BI-SCM was useful

I read Network Magazine’s article on BI-SCM in the February 2006 issue. It was impressive and gave a good understanding of the concept to the layman.

I am studying with the S P Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai. The story has been quite useful to me.

Technology Senate 2006

I am interested in knowing about Network Magazine’s annual CTO event Technology Senate. I heard about the Senate from a peer of mine in the CIO fraternity.

Will you be conducting the event this year? Where can I find details on this?
