VMware stock shoots up as it makes more deals

The big bounce came on the eve of the fourth annual "VMworld" conference starting today at San Francisco's Moscone Center. More than 10,500 people from companies around the world have registered for the conference that showcases how VMware and its rivals are transforming information technology.

The initials VM signify how its software enables one computer server to run several operating systems, creating "virtual machines" that enhance reliability and efficiencies while reducing costs in hardware and energy.

VMware, a Palo Alto-based subsidiary of data storage giant EMC, made headlines last month with an initial public offering that saw its opening $29 price climb 76 percent to $51 by the end of the first day of trading. It has been Silicon Valley's most successful IPO since Google, and the VMW ticker has continued to soar, closing at $76.76 a share Monday.

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.
