MacBooks for the Corporate users?



I think with the increasing adoption of Intel Architecture and X86 model, Apple is coming pretty close to allowing those lone-rangers to help MacBooks (Macs in general) penetrate into the Enterprise.

This post makes me so jealous. You can also see his regular Office software run in "coherence" with Parallels.

After using the my political juice at work, I weaseled a new MacBook Pro out of corporate IT to be a "trial user" for Parallels. I had a last gen Powerbook G4 and this is so much zippier. But the coolest part is Parallels. For those that don't know, Parallels is virtualization software that lets you run Windows at the same time as Mac OS X. There is a new version on their site that adds all kinds of nifty features, the coolest of which is Coherence mode. Coherence basically lets you run Windows apps on the Mac desktop.


And this is what I meant in the previous post about user happiness and creativity. It really doesn't matter if its a Mac or not, users ought to be able to choose their most personal environment (in close adherence by using a robust virtualization solution for your enterprise like VMware) where they can get as productive as nature intended...ahem.

I'm still very jealous of that screenie! ;-)

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…
