NetApp and VMware to work together


VMware has won the heats and is spidering its web into the hearts of the corporate vendors. and surely there are others who remain still at bay, chiefly competitors, and I can understand the reluctance, but it's time to join the game and make technology alliances with VMware. This would mean several vendors like Oracle and Microsoft.

Imagine if Oracle and Microsoft do make such a massive, and very cool move, like this, why on earth would you want to do business via via?

Anyways , for now, lets look at NetApps's 10 reasons to deploy VMware:

OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY
1. Increase overall productivity. The
combination of VMware and NetApp
offers significant advantages for companies
that are consolidating servers and
storage by reducing costs, maximizing
storage utilization, and increasing
operational efficiency.
2. Flexibility. NetApp solutions give you
the ultimate in flexibility by enabling you to
choose iSCSI, FCP, or NFS connectivity
within a single storage platform. NetApp
systems can also mix drive types within
a single system so that you can tier your
virtual machines (VMs) within a single
architecture, giving users flexibility and
investment protection.
3. Streamline storage allocation to
virtual machines. With NetApp, VMware
administrators can supply storage to virtual
machines in seconds while achieving
the highest level of storage utilization.

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…
