Virtualization craze: CIOs and Managers ought to focus on the ABCs of Virtualization!



With so much going on in the Virtualization arena, it is getting increasingly difficult for managers, CIOs and just about anyone to see virtualization happening in their production environment. The confusion which may result from the "too much information" phenomena, may have many influencers and decision-makers bogged down.

I too blog on several issues and try to address many key issues through the means of strategy articles, reporting other bloggers opinions , and obviously sharing my experiences with the others. I am approached by CIOs privately. (I'm sorry , I won't take any names) and am asked what it is. And all I can advice them is to get a simple idea of what Virtualization is and what it can really mean for an organization. Today VMware is a market leader. Its market share is not just plainly "first in" advantage they have (adequately) addressed several crucial issues and have addressed the manageability of such complex infrastructure by providing some good tools.

This is excellent for many to take the virtualization for a quick spin. Other virtualization vendors such as Virtual Iron too are moving rapidly in providing a good management interfaces with all the basic tools for the admins to start managing their infrastructure.

But I can very well understand that many firms can find it very hard to make a decision when there is so much happening out there.

John Waters has written pretty well what it is all about. Do read it.

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…
