Microsoft, Citrix extend alliance, again?

OK, products now. We wanna test!

For more than 18 years, Microsoft and Citrix have offered solutions that improve the delivery of Windows(R) applications and desktops using Citrix Presentation Server running on Microsoft Terminal Services. More recently, the two companies have collaborated on solutions designed to simplify branch office computing using Citrix WANScaler running on the Microsoft Windows Server(R) 2003 and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server platforms. Today's news extends that alliance, making it easier for mutual customers and partners to design virtualization directly into their solutions, using their existing investment and providing a road map for the future.

"Customers want options for making desktop computing and applications more broadly accessible. Their needs vary widely depending upon bandwidth, user location, and application type and information sensitivity," said Mike Neil, general manager of virtualization strategy at Microsoft. "Microsoft offers a comprehensive set of virtualization products at the server, desktop and application levels, and the management platform for both physical and virtual environments, so customers can deliver computing in a much more flexible, dynamic and responsive manner. By standardizing on a common virtualization format for both operating systems and applications, Microsoft and Citrix will enable customers to run interoperable solutions that can be centrally managed using our technologies."

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…
