Slice 'n Dice: IBM is serious


And IBM is going rather strong in the Asian and other places. Funny, I spoke to my Avastu Associate in India and told him about my experiences in Africa. We ordered our project team in Africa to order for some laptops. And they all went ahead and bought ThinkPads! Anyways you'd never think of buying a ThinkPad here in Europe (don't know about US).

My point (as worded by my associate) "Its pretty much IBM here, Tarry". It's very much prevalent and they have their way , way too deep into the corporate world in these regions.

So think of a scenario, one of those big firms like Satyam, TCS, HCL, Wipro,Infosys etc would like to go full virtualization, IBM may just eat the whole market in no time.

Anyways, if you had a few thousand servers, it would take a just a handful of those z/VM's to consolidate it all!

As our Register guys report...

With release 5.3 of z/VM, customers now run even more virtual machines - up to a 1,000 of the bastards on a single copy of the hypervisor. We're not so sure that many customers will need virtual machines in such quantities, but IBM likes to throw out the big numbers.

More importantly, IBM has bulked up z/VM on a number of fronts.


But the big blue means serious business! Read the rest of the story by Ashlee Vance

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…
