Europe: SMEs still not convinced on virtualization

Virtualisation providers have yet to convince Irish SMEs of the technology's potential, analysts at IDC have told ENN.

Research by the firm indicates that large companies in Europe see benefits in virtualisation but that SMEs have yet to show the same level of interest. "It's certainly not seen as a mature technology by SMEs in any of the countries we've gone to," Chris Ingle, consulting and research director with IDC, told ENN. He made the comments at a roundtable event in Munich held by Novell, Intel and IDC.

Virtualisation technology is designed to allow computers and servers to be used much more efficiently by facilitating several programs at the same time. Virtualisation firms say that virtual infrastructure software enables multiple virtual machines to be run on a single physical server, making for more effective and efficient use of customers' server hardware resources.


Well the fact that the SMEs are taking a note of virtualization is reason enough to shoe them the full-fledged use and benefits of virtualization. They will understand, surely!

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…
