Microsoft delays Windows 2008, Virtualization late too

Well this doesn't come as a surprise, they have loads of work to do and I can imagine the developers working harder to get the bugs out of the system. We are still waiting for viridian but we will obviously not wait for our own virtualization deployments, but you knew that already.

The reason? Helene wrote that Microsoft is happy with the feedback it’s getting from the latest product builds but wants to spend more time to reach the expected “high quality bar.”

She quoted a Microsoft program manager as saying that Server 2008 is “like a brisket.” It just needs “a little more time to bake.”

Launch Event

A launch event for Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008, and Visual Studio 2008 has been planned for February 27 in Los Angeles. Assuming Windows Server 2008 is not ready for release by February 27, the other products featured at the event might be delayed.

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.
