SaS and Virtualization: LSI,Intel and Microsoft show how its done

SAS =! SaaS. SAS= serial Attached SCSI ;)

LSI Corporation announced it is collaborating with Intel and Microsoft at Intel Developer Forum to demonstrate the scalability, availability and performance enhancements that Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) brings to virtualized environments. LSI will showcase the Windows Server virtualization capabilities of its SAS portfolio at the Independent Hardware Vendor (IHV) Community booth #119, September 18-20, 2007 at the Moscone Center West in San Francisco. In addition, LSI will be displaying its end-to-end SAS solutions and unmatched storage interface breadth at various venues throughout the show, including the LSI booth #229, the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Community booth #149, and the SCSI Trade Association (STA) booth #324.

"With more and more users deploying virtualization technology to capitalize on the operational efficiencies its provides, LSI is working to make sure that our industry-leading SAS portfolio not only meets the demands of these environments, but exceeds them," said Robert Andrews, director of product marketing for the Storage Components Group, LSI Corporation. "This demonstration with Intel and Microsoft substantiates the importance of our end-to-end SAS technology that has the ability to deliver superior scalability, availability and performance to virtualization implementations."

The Windows Server 2008 demonstration will showcase how extendible SAS storage products offer a flexible and simplified hardware infrastructure to scale up Windows Server virtualization deployments. This demonstration will highlight the seamless integration of SAS physical hardware in Windows Server 2008 and its hypervisor-based virtualization capabilities with a single driver implementation while achieving greater than 90 percent of physical storage hardware performance.

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…
