Competitors find VMware's growth hard to digest

I can fully understand though, all the money, all those new customers who ought to have been using other virtualization products; all that IPO stuff; all that Intel and Cisco (and other big daddies wanna eat pie at VMware's kiosk).

Honestly, the typical car buying users and customers want simplicity. Look at VMware, they have made all those windoze admins VMware aware. They got the GUI and the winboys took it with arms wide open. So all Xen needs is some cool GUI stuff and trust me, you will have loads of folks trying out your stuff.

El Reg's post:

Meanwhile, VMware is providing the whole car. It might be sleek, shiny and complete, but what you see is what you get — all at the mercy of VMware. Their proprietary code may get VMware rich, but it leaves everyone else in the cold. And as VMware's platform expands, it's bound to step on partner's toes more and more. "We want people to use our codebase and have everyone make out like bandits," said Crosby. "Otherwise, only VMWare makes out like bandits. That's not good for the rest of us.
Bandits, eh?

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…
