Inovation Everywhere
This is a good point, and demonstrates the importance of a clear cut value proposition from each new technology introduced. Basic6 has always been committed to this concept. While our tool addresses several major challenges facing today's infrastructure management, it can produce ROI on any single feature of the product itself, giving it tremendous utility, all while causing no other costs to be incurred. Basic6 was specifically designed to be lightweight, low cost, deploys no agents, and requires no special training or technical skills.

Comment from RightScale
After this article published, RightScale Product VP Rishi Vaish contacted us to clarify this article's discussion of RightScale and a base OS:

"RightScale supports porting and automating workloads across ten different cloud providers," Vaish says. "For convenience RightScale provides a rich set of base images should customers choose to use them, but RightScale fully supports customer provided images as well so that customers do not have to port to an unfamiliar operating system."

Another startup at Interop NY - Fiber Mountain
Although we are not on this panel, as we have been quiet until just before Interop, Fiber Mountain will show our products and solutions for transforming network infrastructure that have never been seen publicly before. We focus on data center innovation and can be found in the SDN Zone at Interop. Watch for news shortly as we start to share our story. We begin analyst and press briefings next week!

Re: Innovation everywhere
We need such a rather centralized place to gather information and find the right solution to move forward. There are so many innovations all the time so people are fed up with information.

Innovation everywhere
There's so much innovation going on in IT, both from established companies and startups, it can be hard to keep track. The Startup Hot Seat is a good opportunity to find out if one of these organizations can help you solve a problem or create new opportunities.
