Links for the Week

• A blog post by an admittedly-biased KickFire employee who makes some interesting points about power consumption.

• DATAllegro's take on why they're better than Netezza. We don't get to see open and public assaults like this nearly often enough. :-)

• An interesting perspective on InfoBright, especially given Netezza's recent acquisition of NuTech Solutions (which was founded by Dr. Zbigniew Michalewicz).

• In yet another spin on the term appliance, VMWare is making available virtual appliances - "pre-built, pre-configured, ready-to-run enterprise applications packaged with an operating system inside a virtual machine". Why does this matter to you? Because there are Vertica, DB2 Express-C, Ingres, MS SQL Server 2005, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Derby and Firebird virtual appliances available. Pretty cool, huh?

• A good writeup of some of the announcements made at last week's TDWI World Conference. Of particular interest to me is the final portion about Sybase. More on that later.
