In 1995, the top-grossing film in the U.S. was Batman Forever. (Val Kilmer as Batman, Jim Carrey as the Riddler, Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face. Yeah.) The L.A.

Tech Media Watch: HBO's "Silicon Valley" set to wrap 2nd season – it won't be "Game Of Thrones"-esque but it'll do
The far-and-away best satire of the technology industry on TV airs the last episode of its second season Sunday night, and you really should be watching. <em>Silicon Valley</em> has continued to bring the funny throughout the second set of episodes, and the finale looks like it's leading up to a fairly insane climax.
This past fall saw the worst Ebola outbreak ever ravage western Africa, and while medical researchers are trying to find a drug to treat or prevent the disease, the process is long and complicated. That's because you don't just snap your fingers and produce a drug with a virus like Ebola.

For the past three to five years, server virtualization has been a catalyst for data center consolidation, (even though for the most part, IT has mapped server virtualization initiatives to existing IT infrastructure choices, or dare I say legacy infrastructure).
As more and more servers are virtualized, connections between them are increasingly handled by virtual switches running on the same servers, begging the question, does <a href="http://www.networkworld.com/article/2165935/data-center/how-facebook-aims-to-reinvent-hardware.html">the top of rack data center network switch</a><a href="http://www.networkworld.com/article/2599508/infrastructure-management/manage-infrastructure-convergence-without-losing-your-grip.html">ultimately get subsumed into the server</a>?

It hasn't been lost on the IT vendor community and IT professionals that Cisco is absent from the VMware EVO:RAIL partner program. With all of the powerhouses participating in the program, you'd think that Cisco would jump right into the mix.

Do private Clouds work? You bet they do, says Cisco, which has more than two years of experience under its belt with its Cisco IT Elastic Infrastructure Services (CITEIS) Cloud.
Microsoft just appointed its Cloud guy to be the company's next CEO. Satya Nadella has impressively grown Microsoft into being one of the relevant members of the cloud computing industry, but industry watchers say there is a lot more the company must do to grow into one of the dominant companies in the market.
