What's the sign of a really smart guy? The ability to take a complex topic and simplify it so that even your mom will understand it.
Steve Oberlin, Cassatt's Chief Scientist, had done that. He's taken a look at how data centers operate, the dynamics that drive them, and how existing technology can help simplify IT management's life. Simpler capacity management, service-level management, and overall energy efficiency. It's the basis behind utility computing, what will drive Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), the basis for building "internal cloud" infrastructures we're all talking about.
Oh. And what's the sign of an extraordinarily smart guy? That he can simplify-down these concepts -and- produce the entire video himself.
