Virtualization promise delivered by VMware



Those who are enjoying the benefits of virtualization already know that. They are in that promise land already! I saw a lot of folks , ZDnet especially, talking about just about everyone dethroning VMware. eWeekss' labs got the sweet taste of ESX on their Intel and AMD based processor boxes. and they too fell in love...

We bound the boxes together under VMware's VirtualCenter management server. From there, we installed several Linux, Windows and Solaris virtual machines onto our ESX hosts, and we were pleased with how the ESX/VirtualCenter duo enabled us to fine-tune our VM implementations.

Companies looking to consolidate single-application servers, to squeeze more out of under-utilized hardware, to extend the availability of their networked services or to get a surer handle on the machines in their data centers would do well to evaluate Virtual Infrastructure 3, which can deliver compelling results in any of these scenarios.


But they too noticed little or no support of management tools on Linux platforms. (Although I can bet you that they are working on several tools with Linux in mind. VMware Converter, Lab Manager to say the least!). They found the pricing a bit confusing and cautioned the users to keep a good eye on Xen.

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…
