Virtualization; Intel dishes out six migration friendly processors!

Also native to the new Xeon 7300 chips is Intel's attempt to make a series of chipsets socket compatible. Dubbed "VT FlexMigration," the design will make the Xeon 7300 series consistent with Intel's other multi-processor chips through at least its next-generation 45-nanometer process core micro-architecture, code-named Nehalem, which is expected in late 2008.

"With FlexMigration, if you are going to be buying servers over a period of time, you can add new servers to the system in a virtual environment, and not worry about migration to future hardware," Tom Kilroy, Intel VP and co-general manager of the Digital Enterprise Group, told InformationWeek. "That means, if your Caneland system is about to fail, you can convert a whole machine over to a server running a Nehalem chip without shutting down applications."

The future migration and virtualization issue became apparent as previous versions of VMware software had be upgraded along with updated hardware. Going forward, that is expected to be less of an issue as VMware and Intel have worked together to optimize VMware ESX Server on the Xeon 7300, said VMware VP of R&D Stephen Alan Herrod.

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…
