XenSource to release its latest enterprise tool

Suddenly the Virtualization folks, vendors and analysts alike have again woken up! A lot of talk around virtualization: KVM going with its own release soon; VMware working on various ways to enhance its VI3 portfolio and getting deeper and deeper into the Data Center; Parallels soon to come out with its server edition; Virtualbox too working on its server edition; and now XenSource, the commercial company backing Xen

XenSource is preparing to take the next big step in its virtualization evolution with the latest version of its XenEnterprise suite, which is ready to roll out Aug. 20.

XenSource is looking to offer an improved product for a growing list of enterprise customers, while providing a low-cost alternative to industry heavyweight VMware and its Virtual Infrastructure suite.

XenSource, with founders that helped create the open-source Xen hypervisor, now has more than 500 paying customers and is looking to create a larger name for itself in the virtualization space, an area that is growing and includes a number of other players vying for a piece of the market, including Microsoft, SWsoft and Virtual Iron Software.

To help bring its product into a more mainstream and larger market, XenSource signed a June 22 agreement with NEC, which bundles XenSource's technology with its line of x86 servers.

The latest version of XenEnterprise product—V4—offers a number of improvements over the older version, including enhanced storage capabilities, the ability to deliver high availability and fault-tolerant backup and support for 64-bit application guests.

These might be pretty good reasons, quoted and the ones mentioned above, to go for XenSource. Read at eWeek.

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.
