Happy Memorial Day

I wanted to take time with today’s post to step outside the world of blade servers and say a few words about Memorial Day.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with Memorial Day, it is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May created to commemorate U.S. Service Members who died while in the military service.  Over the past few years, Americans have used Memorial Day to not only remember those servicemen who have lost their lives, but also to remember those who are still serving in the U.S. Military. 

Only a few people know, but I went to college at North Georgia College, a senior military school in the mountains of North Georgia.  Before entering school, I signed up to serve in the Army National Guard‘s 48th Brigade 1/108th Armor Unit for six years.  Little did I know that my National Guard unit was going to be one of the first units activated during my Sophomore year of college for the first conflict, Desert Shield (which later became Desert Storm.)  While we were fortune enough not to be deployed overseas, I spent 3 months of my life as a Army soldier, preparing to support our battle overseas.  I became close friends with dozens of guys who went on to commission as officers in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Today, many of my friends from college are serving as high rank officers in the Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force.  They leave their families to spend years fighting for my freedom as an American, knowing that each day could be their last.  So, today I want to take time to thank those United States soldiers who are currently serving in the U.S. Military as well as those thousands of Americans who have given their lives over the years.  Thank you!  You are our heroes.

What’s Your Problem??

I’m deviating from the norm today to ask you a question: what’s your problem?  I ask not in a sarcastic way, but in a serious way.  Writing about blade servers is fun, but I’m looking to write up some posts on what problems blade servers, or x86 servers in general, help solve – and I’m looking for your feedback.  Of course, I could rely on the marketing that vendors provide on how they can “increase your ROI” or “reduce your TCO”, but I want REAL issues from you, the reader, and not a bunch of corporate buzz words.

One Stop Shop for Blade Server Links

I continuously find myself re-visiting the same links to find additional information regarding blade servers, so I finally came up with a revolution: why not consolidate the links and put them on my site?    Introducing a new addition to my blog – the “Helpful Links” page.  Located at the top of every page, the Helpful Links page is designed to be a single stop shop for the best links related to blade servers.  My goal is to continue to update this page, so if you have links you want to see, or if something is broken, please let me know.  This is YOUR site.  I built this site for you, so in the words of Jerry Maguire, “Help me, help you.”    Thanks for your continued support.
