Virtualization heats up as VMworld advances

For its part, VMware is likely to showcase servers with virtualisation embedded to boost ease of deployment and reliability.

The largest firm in the sector is expected to show off a slimmer version of its ESX hypervisor that can sit in server firmware rather than having to be installed to disk. Dell has already discussed a project for servers that ship optimised for virtualisation without referring explicitly to VMware.

By packing core virtualisation capabilities into the server rather than on disk, VMware might silence those who say its technology is difficult to install.

Also expected at VMworld is a technical preview of the next release of VMware Server, also scheduled to arrive later this year. On the VMworld web site, VMware has already said that the release will have a web-based console for remote admin, and will be manageable by the next release of VirtualCenter.

With the chiefs of Cisco, Intel and AMD making keynote speeches, optimisations in switching and processors or chipsets are also likely.


So you are going to see loads of puff and stuff! That is promised. Read on...

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…
