Architecting for Manageability

So my SAF coverage stinks. I missed all of Day #3 sick at home. Which means I missed BillG’s keynote. 😦

I did moderate an awesome session on Architecting for Manageability today. The session was awesome because of the speaker Praerit Garg (not because of my awesome if under-utilized moderator skills). He talked about the Dynamic System Initiative and the System Definition Model. DSI and SDM are very important for the Whitehorse analysis and design tools. However, you don’t need to wait for Whidbey to start designing for operations. Check out this whitepaper on how you can start adding support for management models in your applications today.
