IBM and Intel push virtualization on Big Machines with VMware!


A lot of firms are making love and not war and joining the Virtualization space. Microsoft and Novell grinded their teeth together and decided to run their OS on their OS! Hah, got you there!
Anyways IBM and Intel too are doing that. These guys have a massive footprint so it is definitely going to make things a lot complex in the coming years. There is enough folks getting their feet wet out there. Hitachi is coming with their promise of Virtage, EMC has VMware. Other storage vendors and Application Virtualization vendors too are joining in.

Anyways, this is what they say:

“As mid-sized and large enterprise IT organizations strive to cash in on the cost savings of data center consolidation through server virtualization, hosting applications on larger, more expandable multi-processor servers delivers the best return on investment,” said Jim Northington, vice president, System x, IBM. “Nevertheless, many organizations need the tools to help them select the server platform that works best in their unique environments.”


This is old news by the way. Its just that somehow the www.sys-con.com's Virtualization news are coming on my radar. All happen to be either old news or some speculations. Anyways check it out on Intel's site.

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…
