BladeLogic's integration with VMware's VI3

Features of BladeLogic’s integration with VMware Infrastructure include:

Rich configuration item support (including native VMware configuration objects, virtual host and machine relationships, and virtual machine resource configurations) to allow for precise and accurate information when diagnosing a problem and making a change;
Cross platform automation support for tasks such as provisioning, deleting, starting and stopping virtual machines with built-in auditing capabilities to enable IT organizations to quickly respond to the demands of the business while maintaining appropriate governance controls;
Best-practice workflows to implement a process-driven approach to change management, incident/problem management and release management across VMware environments for configuration management tasks including provisioning, repurposing, decommissioning, backup and recovery. This allows IT organizations to easily comply with process standards such as the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL).
Policies to automate both on-line and off-line patching of virtual machines and VMware ESX Server hosts to ensure that both physical and virtual machines meet security compliance guidelines;
Granular access control templates which grant permissions to specific virtual machines, VMware ESX Server hosts and VMware configuration items based on the role and level of experience of the user to enable a workload sharing approach to managing virtualized environments, resulting in reduced management costs;
Integrated packaging and promotion of applications across physical and virtual environments to increase the success rate of application rollouts across multiple VMware ESX Server environments ranging from development to production;
The ability to implement a rules-based compliance approach to consistently enforce compliance across physical and virtual environments with support for auditing and remediation across VMware ESX Server hosts and virtual machines.

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…
