VMware founder & Scientist says: Virtualization WILL transform IT!



As Mendel Rosenblum talks to ComputerWorld here.

Excerpt...


Q:Ten years from now, how will virtualization have changed the PC and server landscape?
A:Virtualization will provide all the computation, all of the disks and all of the networks in your organization. You'll have decisions to make about when I buy more storage bricks or compute bricks based on scheduling of the workload I need to do. It might give me hints that I might need to buy more of this resource or the other, but it's all totally anonymous to me.

That's fundamentally different from the way we work today. Right now, people bring up a server and give it some name so they can personalize it. That will be gone in 10 years. You'll no longer think of a server as being something other than how you think of a disk in a disk array today.

Today, you put the world's most general-purpose operating system on [a server] so you can multipurpose it for anything you want. In a virtual world, you build virtual machines and just customize what you want to do. That' a pretty different way of thinking about how computing goes on.


I agree wholly!

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
