HP unveils new storage virtualization

Hewlett Packard (HP) today introduced a high-end disk array for enterprise customers who require constant access to vital data and continued operations in the event of a disaster.

The latest addition to the XP family of enterprise arrays, the HP StorageWorks XP20000 Disk Array apparently brings both heterogeneous storage virtualization and thin provisioning to customers at a lower entry point.

Packaged as a “disaster-tolerant” design, the XP20000, which is available with a portfolio of software to cut costs and eliminate the complexities that come with data management, integrates a fully redundant hardware platform, unique data replication capabilities, and clustering solutions to create a business continuity solution that mitigates business risk by providing constant data availability.

“Enterprises want worry-free and easily manageable data centers that unfailingly run 24/7 despite any disaster, and the XP20000 helps them achieve that goal,” said Jim Wagstaff, vice-president and general manager, StorageWorks Division, Hewlett-Packard Asia Pacific and Japan.

“The XP20000 is another example of environmentally responsible technologies from HP that lower overall data center management costs for customers, while reducing business risk and increasing IT efficiencies.”

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…
