InovaWave a possible acquisition target?

Well Eweek thinks so. This little firm, where our friend David Marshall works (as a Director Marketing), has a lot more to offer in terms of Virtualization I/O problems. And surely that will be the core issue and obviously security will too make a very strong case.

VMware took Determina, maybe Microsoft might want to take a look at its latest interop partner and tester BlueLane? Also note that we are still talking about VMware and Microsoft but there is Citrix+XenSource, while some may disagree with me, I still think IBM will desperately want to join in this game and go for Citrix. Look at the possibilities:
  • It'll have the fame: Look at all the attention the firms are getting even if they just say the word "virtualization"
  • It'' have the Name: It will suddenly be the firm that deals with x86 virtualization, we all know that IBM is the mother of virtualization
  • In Da Game: It'll suddenly be in the game.
If I were someone close to the CEO, I'd really tell him all that is to be won with this virtualization game.

So what should IBM be doing now to join the game:
  • Server Virtualization: Citrix
  • Desktop: Pano Logic (yep, it's still new but it is really going to be hot!, although I am sure there'll eb a lot of start-ups who'll probably go the same way)
So I am predicting that a major acquisition is on its way! for now, check out EWeek's possible acquisition targets.

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…
