Platform computing and XenSource sign OEM partnership


Platform Computing, a leading systems infrastructure software company, and XenSource, the leading provider of enterprise-class virtualization solutions based on the open source Xen hypervisor, today announced an OEM agreement that enables Platform to integrate and bundle XenEnterprise v4 with the new version of their VM Orchestrator (VMO) solution.

Under terms of the agreement, Platform will embed XenEnterprise v4 with VMO as part of a complete VM life cycle management solution, offering best of breed dynamic resource management, self-service functionality, and resource aware high availability (HA), all from a common web-based management console. A core element of VMO is Enterprise Grid Orchestrator™ (EGO) — a proven management environment and policy engine that dynamically allocates shared resources based on application priority and workload. The two companies will participate in joint marketing activities including an upcoming webinar.

“XenSource is committed to an open ISV ecosystem, with an open product that allows best-of-breed solution vendors such as Platform Computing to complement XenEnterprise v4 with value-added features,” said Simon Crosby, CTO, XenSource. “Platform worked closely with XenSource during the v4 engineering cycle. It is exciting to see powerful technologies from grid computing, like Platform’s Enterprise Grid Orchestrator™ applied to the automation of virtual infrastructure. Integration with XenEnterprise v4 extends Platform’s leading enterprise grid technologies with the ability to deliver fully automated virtual infrastructure.”

Introduced in August 2007, XenEnterprise v4 includes XenMotion™ for live migration of running virtual machines; XenCenter™, a scalable, resilient virtual infrastructure management framework integrated into every host; an open, standards-based XenAPI which enables ISVs and OEMs to develop add-on solutions for XenEnterprise v4; and, a powerful 64-bit hypervisor that supports both 32- and 64-bit enterprise workloads. This release includes version 3.1 of the Xen open source hypervisor and leverages the latest hardware virtualization support features from Intel and AMD to deliver near bare metal performance. Benefiting from XenSource’s comprehensive 24x7 regression testing on hundreds of hosts worldwide, XenEnterprise is without doubt the highest performance and most robust virtualization platform available.

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…
