VDI : Very Different Idea



But not a dumb idea, I don't think so. All those who have thought up the thin computing deserve all the credit of bringing the ThinComputing to the market. So VMware is bringing it to the masses. Some might say its clever rebranding, I will take it up further and say its something that fits perfectly with the Server Virtualization and its ready for prime time!

I know that a lot of Thin Computing folks might feel like "Hey, we've walked on fire and you dare to...".

Anyways its still funny to read this view...

It’s a harsh assessment, but one that’s born out of pragmatism. Back in the glory days of the thin-computing movement IT organizations were faced with TCO-inflating issues like remote application deployment and configuration management. Many shops actively sought alternative compute models in an effort to bring some degree of order to the chaos, and server-based computing was a long considered the front-runner.

PS: I went up to look for Randall's posts and was thrilled to see that he has declared VMware dead. Contender? VirtualBox. Hey whatever happened to Xen, QEMU, KVM and just about anything. One question for you , Randall. Have you even tried VMware's products? Another blog we don't have to visit, I guess.

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…
