Diane Greene starts her blog at VMTN!

I'd actually love to hear her talk (as in podcasts) but I'm rather content with her blogging at VMTN.

In the midst of mad rush towards Virtualization and where everyone is setting and freeing their software (no matter its junk or means absolutely nothing). Anyways each to his own. but still one HUGE HUGE issue is being forgotten. The customer is getting smarter by the day. I think Diane raises some very crucial issues in her first post.

Benchmarks. There are starting to be multiple offerings for virtualization and the customer needs a way to evaluate the performance of the different offerings on apples to apples basis. There should be a benchmark that can show the performance in real-world relevant ways and also in a way that requires as inexpensive a setup as possible.

Yes, I want benchmarks. I'm not going to risk my business on anything. I want a solid product!

I think I will talk a bit about "Why cook a solid virtualization product?" soon. I love to do the impromptu talk.

So if you're (as a virtualization vendor) asking yourself questions like...
  • -- Serious question to be asked daily, a healthy sign

  • --Cluelessness (Some sign of hope for the team)

  • -- "Relentless Inquisitor's" vain attempts to stop the charging bull from dashing against the wall. Keep him in your shop if you want to survive. He could be your last hope!

  • Well...(Because they're smarting up real fast!)-- Disbelief

  • --Despair and Anger
(I did manage to talk quickly about it) Well listen to what I have to say then on "Why cook a solid virtualization product?"

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…
