Goofy Mashups sell Virtualization

Or so it seems. IBM has been touting their virtualization programs by showcasing it with items such as Red Bull Racing and the US Open. This is either genius or just plain goofy. Look a this picture on the right, does that really make any sense? A race car to sell environmental products? Or does it mean that the motherboard is fast, just like the car? I bet the guy is forcing a straight face.

Be that as it may, I am very excited about IBM's PowerExecutive software, which monitors and diagnoses virtual servers in real time. They make reference to monitoring the 'virtual climate' and responding to it, much like a weather report. Now, that I like!
