VMTN: Ultimate Virtualization Resource Center

This recently polished VMTN section has several great resources. Look at it. It is complete with:
  • Discussion Forums: I drop by once in a while to see and sometimes am pulled by the alerts that I allow to send me an email , should there be something going on like a new post or direct response to my post.
  • Documentation*: I cannot stress enough. I read them from time to time. Check out all the update documents there. I will be preparing a course material for VMware Server for my international project and thus will be reading that manual really thorougly! But if you are preparing for a VCP exam then you will be spending a lot of time here and carrying the printed docs under your arms. Like I said, to know your stuff real good , this is a great starting point.
  • KB (Knowledge Base): Things and all other issues like time synchronisation on Linux Server (SMP VMs), disappearing vNICs on Windows hosts, etc c an all be found here. Very rich and helpful resource.
  • Discussion Forums: A very cool place to hang out. All the customers hang out here. I won't be surprised if this component is just added into the client-site's corporate site as a portlet. Very important to get your questions answered here and also help others pick up the strings and get going. Registration is free!
  • Technical Resources: A good place to get white Papers etc
  • Security Alerts: Equally important. Cannot stress enough.
  • Compatibility Guides: Very crucial to read before deploying VMware Solutions. Also crosscheck with your harfware vendor.
* Although Documentation Section is easy to reach but it would make some sense to have revised docs on that panel. They are there on the top left anyways.

So if you really want to test the products or know more about the VMTN , you ought to visit this page at least once a day.

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…
