The Cheap Revolution

posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 9/11/2006 04:38:00 PM
Bill Coleman is featured in this week's Forbes as the leader of the Cheap Revolution - all software open source, all hardware off the shelf - think Linux, mySQL, Apache running on pizza boxes. Bill was one of the founders of BEA Systems and now heads up Cassatt. He offers an interesting view on how the Cheap Revolution is challenging proprietary hardware powered by Sun processors and operating systems powerd by Windows. Cassatt is creating middleware to virtualize hardware, processing, and storage - a very big vision that is similar to what VMWare accomplished with VMWare Server.
