GridToday's report on Virtualization

The 451 Group believes that server virtualization is transforming datacenter management by breaking the one-to-one relationship between applications and (usually Windows) servers.

I'be been saying for a long time. While you all are looking at the relationships between apps and servers. If you are a manager this is what I can (almost) guarantee you will happen:
  • A healthy working venn will be created with all the collaborative units within and outside your domain, meaning users/admins/all of them will be able to relate to each other.
  • Will help both your E- and O (Nohria & Beer, HBR) change models dramatically
  • Applications mobility will be a reality (how often we have choked on all kinds of little fixes)
  • Clients will experience enormous gains and insights into their "own intellectual property" by committing themselves (Or should I say flirt) to such proven technology
I can go on and on. But honestly this the first good thing I am seeing from a disruptive technology such as virtualization. We are finally getting a grip on ourselves!

Server virtualization and related technologies can lower capital, energy and labor costs in the datacenter by streamlining application development and by consolidating workloads into more efficient arrangements of hardware. The 451 Group expects that, over the next two years, this will result in increasingly ubiquitous virtualization. All major server operating systems will include 'bare metal' virtualization as a standard. All major server CPUs will include hardware assistance for virtualization.

While 2 year is a might be a bit too early but hey in 2009 we will be into a totally different space, thats for sure. Read here...

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…
