After joining with Southeastern Asset Management in signing an open letter to
Dell’s special board committee – which is wrestling with Michael Dell’s
offer to pay $13.75 a share, 10 cents more a share, to change how the
stockholders vote on his leverage buy-out offer is counted – telling the
special committee he expected them to tell Michael Dell “no” – activist
investor Carl Icahn wrote another open letter to Dell shareholders
characterizing Michael Dell as a “whining” “sore loser” and major
corporate “liability” and castigating the Dell board for “making a
mockery of what little is left of corporate democracy at Dell.”
He tells them that “If my past record is any indication, I believe you will
be happier and richer if you join me in voting against the Michael
Dell/Silver Lake deal....It is time for Michael Dell and the Dell Board to

As Cloud and SaaS applications become mission-critical to organizations, IT
managers are being asked to integrate these new applications with existing
on-premise applications and business processes. Successful cloud integration
projects require collaboration between both the IT managers and business
users to fully understand the business process requirements and technological

Ten years from now software developers will commute to work only if they’re
invited to a corporate party or they have to work for an old fashioned
client. Software professionals (not the average 9-to-5 workers) will have a
freedom to equip home office to their taste. In our company we already work
in this mode trying to minimize/eliminate the commute time as much as
possible, and I’d like to share with your the home office setups from three
concrete people of our company, circa April 2013.
But first I’ll touch on the monitor connectivity solutions that might be
useful for some of you. Computer professionals should be having computers
with more than one monitor. Hooking up the monitor number two is easy. Your
laptop has this video output (VGA, mini DVI, etc.) that presenters use while
delivering their powerpoints via projectors.

Canonical has released Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC), which will run on Dell
PowerEdge C2100 and C6100 servers in an integrated solution enabling Dell's
U.S.-based customers to easily deploy Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
This standard edition will allow software developers and IT organizations to
run cloud proof-of-concept programs by providing an optimized, pre-configured
testing and development environment. Workloads can easily be shared with
external providers for capacity growth due to Ubuntu's open-source
implementation of the de facto cloud-computing standard provided by Amazon
The availability marks the completion of a cooperative engineering effort to
give businesses an easy way to build and deploy world-class private cloud
infrastructures that work with the most popular public cloud providers.

We’re seeing a lot of changes in the IT landscape. Oracle buying its way
into the Cloud, AMD wants in on the server business, Dell is no longer a PC
company, and some legacy players are learning about the Cloud market the hard
way (see: Harris Scraps Secure Public Cloud).
Harris claims customers have a preference for on premise (private cloud)
solutions, though a McKinsey survey mentioned in the article indicates CIOs
will take a “balanced” approach (read: Hybrid Cloud). Besides, acquiring
on-premise IT business won’t get easier in the Federal government space
with its shift to a Cloud First Policy, nor in State government (see Time For
State And Local Govs To Head To The Cloud).
Is the Cloud chasm too wide for legacy players (like Harris) to cross?

Reportedly prodded by IBM, Dell has moved to try to eclipse a hush-hush Cisco
attempt to ride roughshod over software-defined networking (SDN) and rally
the industry behind a proprietary Cisco standard in a consortium code-named
News of the counter-insurgency is reportedly supposed to hit the wires
Cisco and a few friends have reportedly been putting together an SDN
consortium code-named "Daylight." It was supposedly meant to create an open
source SDN controller with Cisco as the reference architecture for OpenFlow
And the move supposedly had it in for VMware. At least that's been the buzz
The consortium reportedly included Cisco, HP, NEC and Citrix. Evidently Cisco
is still ticked over its buddy VMware buying Nicira, the promising SDN and
network virtualization start-up, last year.

Yesterday, Dell announced the largest technology M&A in history with a
proposed $67B buyout of EMC and VMware (via EMC’s 80% ownership of VMW).
The combined company will have over $80B in revenue, employ tens of thousands
of people around the world and sell everything from PCs, servers & storage to
security software and virtualization software. Not to be overlooked is the
fact that Dell and EMC will be private companies and free from the scrutiny
of activist investors.
Dell has to borrow a ton of money to make this deal, like $40B debt. The
annual interest payment will be $2.5B! This deal has three entities –
Michael Dell’s own investment, Silverlake Partners, and Singapore based
Tomasek. On paper this seems like the two companies bring complimentary
values – Dell sells to small to medium size companies and EMC addresses the
larger enterprise needs. The big attract... (more)
Oracle and Dell have cut themselves a new global deal that makes Dell the
"exclusive" distributor - now there's a stretch - of Oracle's new 10g
database, or rather Oracle Standard Edition One, pre-installed on Dell's
Intel boxes and targeted at SMBs.
The potential two-way Dell PowerEdge 2600s and 2650s will run either Windows
or Red Hat Linux and cost $4,995 per CPU or $149 per user. Oracle's software
comes on a shrinkwrapped CD and the Oracle license automatically kicks in
when the seal is broken.
Only the Red Hat configuration is immediately available.
The object of the game is to lower the cost of business critical computing
for a broader range of customers, including China, where Dell's server sales
were up 85% last year. China is Oracle's fastest-growth market, Oracle CEO
Larry Ellison said.
The joint push in China, which recently started with Dell moving the Or... (more)
