Sarah Palin Talks Data Center Monitoring?

Will a digital shout-out to "Joe the Sysadmin" sway your monitoring decision? Would Larry King's avatar be able to intelligently discuss load balancing?

Huh? Sarah Palin and Larry King discussing data center monitoring? Well, no. This video from LogicMonitor uses digital animation and voice technology to create a two-minute conversations in which avatars resembling the former Alaska governor and CNN host discuss monitoring, availability and load balancers. The video was created with xtra normal, which offers a "text-to-movie" service that allows users to craft messages to be spoken by digitally animated characters. So if a digital shout-out to "Joe the Sysadmin" may sway your monitoring decision, well, here's your two minutes of marketing mischief.
