Data Center Managers love VMware!

Whats not to love about VMware. The products are cool and you have solutions that can fit every budget!

DC estimates that nearly 500,000 server boxes equipped with virtualization software will ship this year, up from just above zero three years ago. By 2009, the number of units shipped is expected to reach 1.2 billion, the research firm said. "I'm shocked by the level of adoption of virtualization," IDC analyst Michelle Bailey told a conference audience.

Gosh! That is some staggering figure! So have you made up your mind yet? If not, catch that first flight and plan to go to Los Angeles today!

VMworld is the place to be if you want to stay abreast with the latest trends. Check here for more details.

More news:
  • Well we knew there will be lots of players writing management software for VMware. Opsware is doing that as well.
Opsware Inc. (NASDAQ: OPSW), the leading provider of Data Center Automation software, today announced the company's strategy for managing complex virtual server environments at the company's annual user conference, OPSWorld, held this week in San Jose, CA. During an opening keynote in which he demonstrated solutions for automating the management of tough IT assignments from VoIP networks to configuration management data bases (CMDB), CEO Ben Horowitz discussed the little understood challenges of managing virtual servers. This complexity created by the rapid adoption of server virtualization -- and the accompanying rise in server "images" to be managed -- has reached crisis proportions as IT departments struggle to keep up with the dramatically increased workload. Horowitz's keynote discussed and demonstrated the value that automation can deliver for environments virtualized with technologies such as VMware, Microsoft Virtual Server, Sun Solaris 10, XenSource and others, both in terms of setting up these environments as well as in the ongoing management of them.

Anyways I'm pretty darn sure VMware will come up with a smart answer on that (HECK they have it already, its called Virtual Center). They have a bunch of smarties , thats for sure.

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…
