SWsoft's "funny" tactics with Parallels?



We all know that SWsoft was daddy-dear to Parallels for a long time. And all this news of Parallels coming with its own server products (geez..don't we have enough on our hands?) , the tone on their blogs might have to change, says this blogger:

Moreover, the Virtuozzo blog has long been a critic of hardware/para-virtualization, where VMWare, Xen and Microsoft Virtual Server are frequently attacked. For example, this (VMWare taking over the role of OS, so Linux and Windows vendor should take up the fight with the alternate solution), or this (VMWare=slow, OS virtualization=fast), or this (para-virtualization is slow), or this (hardware/para-virtualization is re-inventing the wheel). I am not saying the attacks are miss-leading, and there are indeed a lot of truth in there! However, now with Parallels, another hardware virtualization software, on board, I wonder whether the tone of the Virtuozzo blog will be different.

Funny isn’t it? 4 months ago the hardware/para-virtualization technology is reinventing the wheel. Now they are just complimenting.


Without wasting anymore breath, lets check the essential details:
SWsoft is challenging VMware (nice but do note that even big players have a lot of ground to catch up)and sure its a $20 Billion market (meaning $5 Billion this year? Sorry I just did plain math)and we can fully understand the Virtualization vendors going head-on with all kinds of claims. I'm still curious if the client community is waiting for yet another product?

Anyways this blogger found it funny.

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…
