Marathon gets the "Best of VMworld award"; CEO thrilled about VMworld developments


"It was a little surprising, but welcome," said Marathon CEO Gary Phillips of the award. His company was happy to accept the TechTarget-sponsored award in the New Technology category, though Marathon "has been shipping a product since January 2004 based on a virtualization architecture," he said.

"We're able to provide continuous availability, in such a way that it's transparent to the application, and everything's automated so it installs in hours. A good portion of our customers are SMBs, so they're very compelled by the fact that it's plug and play," said Phillips, who described his partner base as "100 percent channel."

Marathon has about 150 channel partners, with that number breaking down about 50-50 between system builders and system integrators, Phillips said.

Key Information Systems has built a successful partnership with Marathon, said Pete Elliot, VP of marketing at the Woodland Hills, Calif.-based system integrator.

"Our pedigree is availability, keeping systems up and running. We take hardware and software and makes it work for companies. We take products like Marathon and bundle them with an HP or IBM component and make them work," said Elliot, whose company is an IBM Premier Business Partner.

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.
