Green Data Centers: IBM customers virtualize their Unix and x86 platforms

I am betting that VMware (or should I say EMC) is going to go full blast at that Blue Whale, it won't be easy though since we are are talking about the mother of virtualization here. but still I think VMware has got to go for Unix and X86 data center consolidation and virtualization. Would that mean that Unix will eventually catch up? For now, I'll let you read this news

At LinuxWorld here today, IBM (NYSE: IBM) announced that dozens of customers — including Volkswagen AG and Telefonica Moviles — have recently selected Linux on POWER for consolidating their UNIX and x86 workloads to IBM’s System p servers as they seek to maximize their IT investments and become more energy efficient. When combined with those customers migrating from competitive platforms to IBM’s AIX UNIX operating system on System p, the migrations to Linux on POWER are part of a broader overall increase in adoption of System p servers that bring the total migrations to more than 700 since the start of 2006, including over 250 this year alone.

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…
