IBM Virtual World Can Manage Your Servers

Here’s a closer look at the “Virtual Network Operations Center,” a Second Life demo of IBM’s technology for creating virtual worlds that provide real-time monitoring of a distributed network of data centers. It provides a 3D model of your actual racks and servers, along with multiple screens presenting information about the status of your data center. There’s also a lounge where your sysadmin avatars can take a break. So do the virtual sysadmins work while their real-life counterparts relax? Or is it the other way around? This video runs about 5 minutes, 30 seconds.
