Data Center 3.0: Cisco's Vframe and VMware's VI3 the "road to secure infra"

"Cisco and VMware share a joint vision for driving and supporting a service-oriented approach for the data center," said Krish Ramakrishnan, vice president and general manager, Server Virtualization Business Unit, Cisco. "Together our efforts support the IT collaboration that will be required across organizations to streamline operations and take advantage of the data center technology advancements to come."

Cisco began the technical collaboration with VMware as a result of customer feedback requesting a tighter integration with Cisco Catalyst® and MDS technologies to support the scaling of their VMware Infrastructure deployments. By adding service orchestration, Cisco VFrame DC can provision all the network services for Internet-facing applications running on VMware Infrastructure, including firewalls, content load balancing, switch and server trunks, and access control lists; all from a single GUI-based service template. This integration enables network, storage, and security IT groups to collaborate using a common design interface for dramatic improvements in real-time provisioning agility.

"VMware customers are used to being able to rapidly provision and configure virtual infrastructure," said Brian Byun, vice president of global partners and solutions, VMware. "Now, with Cisco's integration of VFrame DC, customers can also get similar benefits for their physical infrastructure. VFrame DC enables coordinated provisioning of physical resources (network, storage and server) to complement their virtualized infrastructure."

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…
