Will VMware's Fusion product fare poorly in MacWorld?



ComputerWorld reports that VMware's fusion product may have limited appeal. I don't know about that. I think VMware came around pretty quick and its up to the Mac users and desktop/laptop owners now to give fusion a spin.

VMware Inc. has reported strong initial interest in its virtualization software designed to run on the Mac computer platform, but skeptics doubt it will improve Apple's share of the enterprise market.

About 70,000 people registered for a free download of the software prior to the release of the beta version Dec. 21, and since then, about half of them have proceeded with the download, said Srinivas Krishnamurti, director of product management and market development at VMware.


In my opinion Fusion could have a lot more. Had Fusion had the ability to also run a Mac OSX in MAC OSX it would have rocked. And the Workstation integration would have helped a lot. (Look at the poll on the right). What does Apple want:
  • Sell Mac Hardware
OR
  • Sell OSX/Leopard
OR
  • both?
I think both is the answer. Wouldn't it have been great if I could run my Mac OSX VM on Linux/Windows/Mac OSs? That would have prompted a massive download figure. I would have loved to run and display the Oracle RAC on OSX.

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…
