Top 5 reasons to choose for virtualization

Well you may have seen that I have given in total more than hundred reasons to go for virtualization. This news item talks about the top 5, check them out:

Here are my top 5 benefits you can realize from server virtualization:

  1. Capital Cost Avoidance. Every time you deploy a VM instead of acquiring a physical server, that action represents several thousand dollars of capital that the company didn't have to spend.
  2. Saving Time & Time = Money. Deployment of a VM using a pre-defined template can be accomplished in minutes, while traditional physical server acquisition/deployment takes days or even weeks.
  3. Environmental Cost Savings. Every physical server in the data center requires physical rack/floor space, power, network connectivity and cooling. Only the host requires these things and whether you're supporting 5 or 20 VMs on the host, the environmental needs do not change.
  4. Portability. Because the VMs utilize virtual hardware, there are no dependencies on the host physical hardware. As new server technology becomes available, you inherit viable servers from acquisition/merger activity or change hardware vendors, you can integrate these hosts into your environment and there is no change necessary for the VMs.
  5. Physical Server Migration/Consolidation. There are many products and methods available to migrate a physical server to a VM with little or no downtime and consolidate them onto a host or into a farm. Many legacy servers will probably function even better as VMs because the host is probably a newer, more powerful server.

Seems good to me, do also join my LinkedIn discussion.

I will send out emails personally to those who are using my link(s) on their sites.

Thanks much for your co-operation and hope you enjoy the new site and its cool new features :-)

Not like the site is unlive or something..on the contrary, its beginning to get a lot of attention already. Well most of the work is done, you don't have to worry about anything though:

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…
