A few months ago I became lead for the corporate work we do in virtual world environments. Today I've got the the first significant event happening since I got this baton and started running with it.
We're hosting an event for our industry analysts. We're going to have 3D virtualized models of Sun's Santa Clara, California datacenter. Our industry analysts are going to be able to "see" by joining us in the virutal world or by experiencing it on the web. So in a pretty real sense, we're delivering the Santa Clara, California datacenter in a browser. Pretty cool, eh?
So while the event is technically for industry analysts, pls feel free to peek in on it, even if you don't technically qualify as an industry analyst. I won't tell.
opportunity to participate in-world is by invitation only to these
industry analysts, and that has sold out. So if you want in on this
game, you need to watch and participate on the web.
What are they going to talk about?
But what I think is super cool about this event is that we're going to be taking advantage of the unique attributes associated w/a virtual world environment to tell this story.
We're doing things like being able to "show" the heat coming off the servers and how the innovation that the Sun Services organization is delivering to our customers manages it.
So while your man-on-the-street might not really get what a HUGE big deal heat and energy is in the datacenter, these hot shot techno celebs running the datacenters totally get that. And this is a neat way for us to show our industry analyst community what the issues are and how innovation from Sun is addressing them for customers in a unique and compelling way.
I'm pretty pumped. I think it will be fun.
