Virtualization advices keep pouring in...



"We've been well past the development/QA stage...". A lot of folks start off like that. Insufficient (or even none!) feedback keeps those virtualization solutions in the labs. It is very important that the managers pull up their socks and start reporting back to their bosses. (For the very same reason the CIOs too must take serious interest in these matters!)

All I want to say is that virtualization is running in production of companies like Google (and these guys run some real stuff there). The virtualization has been running in production for quite many years. Anyways if you're still a newcomer then an advice like this will help you decide:

Instead, you can have each app on its own virtual server, and put them all on one or more physical machines -- however many are needed to run the apps effectively. Costs are reduced since you have fewer machines to power, watch, store, and maintain. Scaling applications can be simplified since you can allocate more or fewer resources to specific vitual servers, and you can always move them onto other, more powerful physical machines as your needs grow. Plus, disaster recovery can be easier, since if you have a hardware failure, you can just load the virtual server onto a different machine and keep on truckin'.

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…
