Computer Express Mumbai: VDI to fuel thin client sales in India!

The VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution is a result of the collaboration between vendors and VMware to make the Thin Client OS aware of key VMware VDI technologies. The end result, Thin OS-VDI Edition, is designed to enhance the user experience and functionality. Arun Rao, Business Manager – Client Virtualization, Personal Systems Group, Hewlett-Packard India says, “Delivering all the qualities associated with VMware VDI in a single ‘push the power button to work’ device, the solution incorporates the new Thin OS-VDI edition software and is delivered on the thin client appliance.”

According to a NEC official the major driving factors VDI in thin clients are security, manageability, reliability, availability and, last but not the least, a reduction in overall TCO. With NEC Sigma System Centre (SSC) featuring system provisioning and deployment manager, it is easy to manage the IT infrastructure more efficiently. Enterprise Desktop Virtualization allows organization to deploy small, secure thin clients on the user’s desktop and then link them to their own virtual desktop machines residing on centrally managed servers. This provides an organization with the opportunity to utilize a totally stateless desktop device as the user access platform. These thin clients are simple in nature with no moving parts and, more specifically, no user accessible local operating system software to accidentally corrupt. The end result? The near elimination of IT support for desktop users. Singh says, “There is no way that any business information will be stored on the device, as the thin client lacks local storage, thereby greatly enhancing enterprise security. Similarly if a device fails, a new thin client device can be plugged into the power outlet and the network cable connected and it is ready to use. Indeed, any user can log into a desktop from any thin client system in the enterprise.”

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…
