VMware: Too popular to be complex?

Yep. They are the heroes today. Really basking in the limelight and they ought to, dogammit! They rebuilt the way you are thinking today, aren't you? Even when ou are defying everything about it, you are thinking about it. Even when you don't want to think about it, you just can't push it away.
Face it, its looking into your face, whether you're looking or not!

Businesses love this since VMware allows them to realize immediate cost savings. It eliminates the requirement to buy new hardware every time a company needs a new application, which shortens project implementation life cycles. It also means fewer servers on data center floors, which reduce cabling, power and floor space requirements.

Where businesses need to exercise caution in this new virtual environment is the complexity that virtualization introduces. Though businesses can virtualize servers and, in so doing, reduce their infrastructure costs, complexity takes on a virtual component as well.

For instance, backups become much more complex. Prior to VMware, each physical server often had its own dedicated network connection it could use for backups. Now each virtual server must share the same physical network connection with other virtual servers on the VMware host.

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…
