Six Channel Blogs The VAR Guy Didn’t Write: Dec. 4
The VAR Guy is feeling a little run down this week. Lack of Latte will do that to you… If our resident blogger had more energy he would have written the following six blog entries for the week ending Dec. 4, 2009.
7. Press Your Luck: CA Inc. is getting ready to launch ARCserve 15 for VARs and MSPs in 2010. But the current ARCserve release is version 12. So what happened to 13 and 14? CA wanted to avoid “bad luck” connotations in North America (“13”) and Asia (“14”). Lucky 15, here we come?
4. Symantec Gets Social: Glenn Hansen is the new Symantec Partner Community online manager. The VAR Guy will be watching Hansen’s handiwork closely.
2. Simplified Systems Management?: GroundWork Open Source and Novell have launched a $59 software appliance to help smaller organizations with their systems management efforts. Both companies landed on The VAR Guy’s Open Source 50 report, which tracks the world’s most promising open source partner programs. Now, the duo is striving to simplify systems management.
1. Check the Headline: If you know The VAR Guy, you know he doesn’t play by the rules. There is no #1 on this list, because it’s a top six list.
