Want to backup your data center? Try VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB)!



Backup is one of the most frustrating, boring (thus allowing the sysadmins to ignore the importance of it) and very cumbersome issue. How many times you have had to encounter the situation: Stuff crashes in test, development and even production and you are looking at the sysadmin looking back at you like "what dýa want from me!?!"

Well I have had enough experiences in the past of all kinds of scenario where some production environments were not even backed up! Well it might sound like "Geez dude, where were you employed, Elbonia?" No sir, this happens all over the place.



Taneja ( a respected storage man) too has somethings to say about VCB...

"Time-consuming and labor-intensive backup and recovery processes have frustrated customers for years," says Arun Taneja, founder and consulting analyst at the Taneja Group. "VMware Consolidated Backup eliminates the backup load from production servers while enabling faster recovery of entire virtual machines."

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…
