Express Computers Mumbai: Virtualization is hot!

R Ravichandran, Sales Director, South Asia, Intel states, “We have written a set of specifications for the platform and given it to the likes of VMware, Microsoft and Xensource. They have all written their software so that they have APIs that support our hardware. Therefore, we still need those VMM vendors or software, the hardware support is a complimentary function.”

"VMware is the only vendor that provides the reliability that comes from thousands of production implementations as well as the business value that comes from built in automation and availability of VMware virtual machines"

VMware has long worked in collaboration with server and operating system vendors. “Despite the entrance of server and OS vendors in the virtualization space, it is not hard to see VMware’s leadership continuing. By not being a server or OS vendor, VMware provides complete choice to our users and allows them to virtualize the infrastructure and run the IT stack that is optimal for the user, without forcing server and OS selections based on a virtualization component,” insists Jim Lenox, Country Manager VMware-ASEAN & India. He adds, “While some of the suppliers may be striving to achieve a basic hypervisor offering, VMware is the only vendor that provides the reliability that comes from thousands of production implementations as well as the business value that comes from built in automation and availability of VMware 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.
