HP through thick and thin with Virtualization: One Desktop Per Client (ODPC)

Mike Reports...

It’s something we might see more of in the next year or two, as computer manufacturers are eager to give IT managers easier ways of implementing Windows Vista across a large number of workstations.

When it’s time to upgrade to Vista, models like the new HP Compaq t5135 (specs here), which will sell for $199, may look good to managers facing the prospect of replacing hundreds of machines at once.



I think the thin computing at work place ought to be totally OS independent. All the organizations need to really evaluate the needs of their staff and in the end I won't be surprised if all of them are replaced with those thin clients from Sun (which we also tried at our place, I loved the idea though!). With all the applications becoming web-enabled, how would anyone care what OS a Thin Apparatus is facilitating?

And as you can see, that stuff is cheap too! They will be shipping these thinnies by Feb 2007.

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…
