Nice "definitional" article on Software Asset Management, and I enjoyed the bit about "that report is radioactive - i.e. it has a half-life..."

How does Data Center Virtualization create Software Licensing “Gotchas”? Data center virtualization is booming (according to one source, at a rate 4X that of cloud adoption), resulting in significant software license issues for some companies.

But the complexity of licensing models, and the difficulty in precisely identifying which virtual machine (VM) has which application running at which time, can lead to spectacular license compliance issues.

If the VMs are enabled to move freely around a cluster, then very significant liabilities can accrue. For example, there are significant cost differences—up to 10x—between a physical server and a virtual machine that is part of a DRS-enabled cluster. And in a recent IDC report, one IT executive noted that for every $1M virtualization saved on hardware, their company spent $13M resolving software license compliance overages.

How can this happen? Different vendors treat different virtualization technologies differently regarding licensing, resulting in highly complex licensing scenarios.

Yes, Chris Brogan nails it. Who to put in your "one family"? In addition to those you love and naturally stay connected with, and those you work with and thus naturally stay connected with...here are the three other sorts to include:
"People you personally want to help succeed. People you feel can help you succeed. People you care about who could use the help of people you know."
