FastScale Composer: Lightweight provisioning of Virtual Data Center


What are the coolest features of this product?

Key innovations of FastScale Composer include:

  • Application Blueprint™ – While operating systems support hundreds of thousands of
    applications, any given application only uses a small subset of the operating system. The
    Application Blueprint automatically identifies the precise operating system components an
    application requires at execution time, without any manual effort.

  • Dynamic Application Bundle™ – Based on the Application Blueprint, FastScale Composer
    automatically builds a small, full-featured software environment including only the precise software
    components required. Averaging only one percent the size of traditional server images, the
    Dynamic Application Bundle (DAB™) is created on-demand at job execution time, so it always
    includes the appropriate updates and patches.

  • Lightweight Provisioning – With the DAB’s small footprint, provisioning to bare metal servers
    takes seconds, as opposed to an hour or more. The application software stack is small enough to
    run in memory, so diskless configurations are easily supported. When a job is complete, the
    server is available for provisioning of a new DAB – all in under a minute.


Press Release and the Composer itself.

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…
