Application Virtualization has management potential?



The big news was the addition of application streaming to create a new version, SVS Professional, using AppStream's technology. Where SVS had installed layers locally on desktop machines before, now they can be streamed down on demand, with a high degree of control over what happens to them. On office desktops, for example, a set of applications may be represented as icons, and a layer acquired on demand may represent only a temporary instance of the app, and when it's closed it goes back into a managed pool on the server. If the user's computer is a laptop, on the other hand, the user probably wants the layer installed permanently so it can be used offline. There's lots of room for creative customization of services here.


Honestly I am banking on thin light weight Virtual Appliance Desktop Infrastructure. Think of it this way. You have an ESX Desktop version on a quad-core PC. You have some very totally different needs. We segregate the needs and provide you with several versions of appliances. You log in to the PC and can run those appliances at your own will. I am not saying that Application virtualization isn't that good. All I'm saying is that we need to isolate the VM so that it is "totally secure".

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…
