Investors gush over VMware; fail to notice EMC

EMC is why VMware is today. No, i am not saying this to kiss-ass any EMC top shot. Well Investors, we are talking about the biggest storage vendor in the market.

Please don't lose focus! (Same thing I told my chauffer when I pushed him to run 1200 KM and when he lost focus for a while, not fair on my part today!)

"EMC (nyse: EMC - news - people )'s stock has not moved up proportionally with VMware's," said Caris analyst Shebly Seyrafi. Shares of EMC rose 0.8%, or 16 cents, to $19.66, on Friday, after Seyrafi upgraded EMC shares to "buy" from "above average." Forbes ranked Seyrafi the third best stock picker in the computer sector in 2007.

EMC retained 87% of VMware's common stock after spinning off the company. Since VMware's initial public offering in mid-August, its shares have gained 32.9%. EMC's shares have only gained 7.5% over the same period of time. Seyrafi said this anomaly is unsustainable and EMC shares will pick up as a result.

EMC makes and sells data-storage devices and software. VMware provides software that allows data centers to use their servers more efficiently. The company has whipped up investor enthusiasm as a market leader in a quickly growing tech sector.

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…
