Virtualization : Regional IT managers worry about security

To paraphrase a chocolate vending scientist, why is it so? One possibility is the relative immaturity of growing regional markets such as China -- if you're only just getting around to proper storage management, security is bound to be a bigger consideration than re-architecting.

However, that argument doesn't apply to the more mature regional markets, such Japan, Australia and Singapore, which still account for a hefty chunk of local spending (and a large proportion of the survey).

Vendors hawking virtualisation solutions (and that covers most players in this market) will presumably need to work harder on selling those concepts to local managers. In the meantime, those looking for a quick sale might as well talk up the security credentials. Anything to make a sale, hey boys?


And you can't blame them for it. but I must also say that none of virtualization solutions, come without security considerations. I think virtualization vendors, resellers and distributors need to educate and enable the clients by adding security profiles, such as Bluelane, Reflex VSA and others, in their portfolio. It should come as a default.

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…
