Thread regarding Sungard Availability Services layoffs

Honestly, are you busy?

I don’t know, maybe some people are overwhelmed with work, but in my case, I wish I was busier. I've never had less work to do. Once upon a time, I would have looked forward to periods when I had less work to do, but now it's not like that at all and it's a bit worrying. I know, the best advice is to get out of here.

No it was built on VCE, The used Cisco switches, EMC san and individual servers. But not the VCE appliance.
They wrote their own VMware code for basic functions, but then failed to maintain it, in order to do timely version upgrades.

Indu K brought us Enterprise Cloud Services that was built upon the Cadillac of Cloud infrastructure at that time; namely, VCE.

Money was not an object then unlike today.

They could never pay his Silicon Valley salary nowadays anyways...

" Maybe they can bring back Indu K. to run the place. He along with A.B. will save the company. "
No way, Indu train wrecked MS. Alienated the board, strained the RS side by ignoring the other GMs, would not participate in customer calls to sell MS and RS if RS was on-line.
Fired all but his cloud product mgr.
He was one the forces that caused the next 5-6 years of no sales.

@swsv: "In a conference call the other day, there was mention that a facility in California could be revamped for another recovery automation project."

This is a game-changer. Things are in the works. I knew something had to happen. No way is the leadership letting things slip. I had a feeling there was some kind of plan. Maybe this is all part of the strategic draft that AB left behind. Way cool if it all plays out.

Talk is cheap, and so is SGAS. Maybe they can shuttle enough vintage used equipment over there to make an attempt...but I have doubts.

“In a conference call the other day, there was mention that a facility in California could be revamped for another recovery automation project”

Wow this is good news. I mean, at least it could be something positive. I’ll take any kind of positive movement over something negative. Wow maybe things are changing!

There was a building in San Ramon. There was a product dev group there. I heard a while back they were all whacked, the building was up for sale, but nobody bought it.

What a joke. I'm so glad I'm no longer a part of the punch line.

In a conference call the other day, there was mention that a facility in California could be revamped for another recovery automation project. I have no idea if anyone is even there but somebody on the call said KR was really into the idea.

The only thing I've heard from a C-level recently is an abridged War and Peace sequel regarding covid from CB. It's easy to maintain social distancing when there's nobody left to spread the disease, my man.

Work lately is extremely tedious and boring. I drink a quart of coffee a day trying to keep my eyes open. A lot of people just going thru the motions. Uneven workload - sometimes it's 10 to 12 hours fixing something, followed by a week of nada. No new products or challenges, adding to how boring & dead things are.

I think the busy folks are just fighting the same fires repeatedly, I don't envy them.

There's also a fringe element of busy-workers trying to make a name for themselves by getting others to perform meaningless tasks in a super-urgent-very-important manner.
