VM Convertor by Invirtus?



I thought we already had one by VMware. Some questions remain unanswered and I would first want them to be answered before asking for an evaluation:

  • Why didn't they address XenSource conversion?
  • VMware has it's oneway convertor+importer that has proven to do a great job (I've converted a lot of my prod boxes and pushed them into my development ESX 3.x environment and my bosses are suddenly looking like "Wooaah")
  • For all you know the VMware Converter too might be free, so there goes your "first-in-the-market" advantage.
  • Microsoft's Virtual Server is being shunned by the die-hard MS folks (OK rant'ish, but not mine)
  • I'll wait till Viridian arrives (Well by then VMware would have pulled the skirts off all the niebie virtualization ladies again with ESX 4, but nevermind)
  • Is it cheap or even free?
So I guess I'll wait. but if you can't wait and have sometime to kill, get it here.

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…
