Virtualization sales shoot up to 67%

and SWsoft is the winner here.

Operating system virtualization software Virtuozzo from SWsoft is growing fastest among all vendors -- 98 percent -- in the hot overall market for virtualization technology, according to industry analyst firm IDC. The worldwide industry sales of virtualization software experienced a 67 percent growth rate from 2004 to 2005 – with revenues topping $560M.

According to IDC, the virtualization market is expected to grow to $15B worldwide by 2009. The proliferation of servers in the data center has led to increased complexity and costs. Virtualization helps to reverse this trend by dramatically reducing the need for adding physical servers and their associated capital, power, software and management costs.

"Our sales momentum is a reflection of our highly-efficient operating system-level Virtuozzo technology, along with its management capabilities for physical servers and virtual environments," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. "We will enhance those with management and automation tools that will allow customers to further maximize the benefits gained through virtualized resources."

Virtualization Efficiency and Manageability By consolidating virtual environments on physical servers, IT managers can reduce hardware costs, while increasing server utilization rates. The ability to effectively manage and automate a growing catalog of virtual assets ensures that complexity is reduced and that virtualization delivers cost savings.

"Overall, IDC views virtual machines as a foundational technology to the dynamic IT," said John Humphreys, program director with IDC's Enterprise Platform Group. "Virtualization, which decouples the application from the underlying hardware, allows the customer to create service oriented infrastructure whereby they can begin to manage services and employ policy-based automation to manage and deliver the underlying infrastructure."

The IDC report also showed virtualization implementations on Linux experienced the fastest growth from 2004 to 2005 continuing the trend from the previous year. That trend is expected to continue through 2009.

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…
