Managing your Virtual Data Center with openQRM



Kris has written a neat and concise introduction to what openQRM can do. I have chosen openQRM as a provisioning tool for our project in Africa. This is amazing and what it all can do is absolutely mind blowing!

Anyways an excerpt...

openQRM, which just reached version 3.1, is an open source cluster resource management platform for physical and virtual data centers. In a previous life it was a proprietary project. Now it's open source and is succeeding in integrating different leading open source projects into one console. With a pluggable architecture, there is more to come. I've called it "cluster resource management," but it's really a platform to manage your infrastructure.

Whether you are deploying Xen, Qemu, VMWare, or even just physical machines, openQRM can help you manage your environment.


and they are also working for plugins for Microsoft Virtual Server, so don't lose heart there.

Excited? Then download our ready-to-use data center openQRM appliance with FC5 and Centos 4 images now! Just search Google for "openqrm appliance" and you'll find the link

Excellent introduction, check it out here on onLamp.com

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…
