Virtual Iron joins Microsoft's Interop alliance

While many firms are still gushing over VMware, excited about XenSource (or atleast getting the market excited about it), it is Virtual Iron who is slowly and gradually gaining momentum. I must say that this shy company, who never raises too much dust, will surely surprise us.

“Virtual Iron is an important addition to the Interop Vendor Alliance,” said David Greschler, director of integrated virtualization strategy for Microsoft. “Tighter integration with Microsoft technologies will provide our mutual customers with highly reliable and easy to implement solutions for server virtualization and virtual infrastructure management in their environments.”

“From a user’s perspective, the greater the interoperability, the better,” said Stephen Bakerman, IT manager at Owen Bird, a law firm in Vancouver, British Columbia. “Like many organizations, we are running multiple Microsoft applications including SQL Server, Exchange and Office. Knowing that Virtual Iron is working with Microsoft and other members of the alliance to remove interoperability issues, gives us great confidence as we look to expand our deployment of virtualization and management.”

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…
