Investors waiting eagerly for VMware's IPO!

Forbes reporting:

Certainly, from a technological standpoint, this is the stock that most of the investing world has been waiting for," said David Menlow, president of market research firm IPOFinancial.com. "It's going to be met with an incredibly strong level of investor support."
But watch out that it may start a domino effect for other IPOs as well!

Despite its connection to well-known players in the tech market, VMware faces the challenge of increasing competition.

"Competition will definitely be an issue, but to what extent I'm reluctant to say," said equity analyst J. Hingorani, who covers EMC at Standard & Poor's. But Hingorani is quick to add that VMware is probably the furthest ahead of its competitors, which include Virtual Iron Software and XenSource.

VMware's IPO could spark additional IPOs in the virtualization market. John Thibault, president and chief executive of Lowell, Mass.-based Virtual Iron, said an initial public offering is something the company will have to consider by the end of next year, or beginning of 2009.

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.
