|English term or phrase: it's already being used in anger|
|Virtualization makes third-generation security possible, on demand, and within budget. Virtualization lets you customize and deploy multiple, pre-tested security services to specific requirements, without incremental cost increase, and with a single, simplified management interface. |
Virtualization offers a realistic path to third-generation security and it's already being used in anger.
Using a virtual services switch, NEC's Systems Integration & Construction division, which employs over 3,000 people, was able to layer firewall and intrusion detection and prevention (IDP) in front of every network LAN segment for 76 percent lower capital and operational costs than using NetScreen firewall and IDP appliances.
So next time someone asks how secure your corporate network is, give them the following answer: defended in depth and layered virtually everywhere.
to use something “in anger” means to use it for real

the product is being trialled or developed with clients before the design is 'set in stone'
'use in anger' is a very specialised new jargon term. Refers to product development. you can use different approaches eg work in-house with a particular client; sell slowly,adapt quickly, and other methods are discussed in Ref 2.

From ref 2:
" In Carl Myhill's article, Get Your Product Used in Anger!, he demonstrates that many design flaws or weaknesses are not exposed until a product is used "in anger", which he defines in the sense of use in the real world under real conditions, not in a demo or lab. As a quick example, see the footpath below, and the "Desire Line" which people really want:
Mr. Myhill further argues that a product designer should try to get their product "used in anger" before finalizing the design.
But how to do it? Beta tests are often ineffective. Radically changing the design after your first release is usually a bad idea. Your best bet is usually finding a client who needs the product and working with them to develop a product, as they have tremendous incentive to use it "in anger" before your first public release, but then you my design too closely to their requirements and have trouble designing for broad appeal.
At Genii Software..., we've tried all of these approaches in one way or another. COEX! Links was first developed for a large customer (our version 1.0 , which was developed along with two other partners, as opposed to our current version, which is all ours). The Midas Rich Text LSX was designed and adapted under the "Sell slowly, adapt quickly" model, where you may force the first few users to undergo a certain amount of design shock as you alter things, but since you sell slowly at first, not too many are inconvenienced. @Midas Formulas is likely to follow this second approach, although we have had a beta test and some early adopters. With ReportLogic, we did almost everything wrong, as we seemed to continually develop a great product underneath with all the wrong "Desire Lines".
How would you, or how do you, get your products "used in anger" before they are "set in stone"?"
