ClearCube goes ahead to manage VDI for clients


Companies looking to implement a virtual desktop strategy could find their task easier following ClearCube’s decision in September to make its Sentral management software more widely available. The suite, which provides monitoring as well as connection brokering, can now be used with third-party hardware such as Dell, IBM or HP servers.

Sentral was developed by ClearCube to manage the firm’s own blades, which put PC hardware into rack-mounted enclosures in a datacentre and provide user access through a desktop console. Early kit simply provided each user with a dedicated blade, but in 2003 the firm added the ability for several users to share a blade, cutting the cost per seat for customers, and then introduced tools to manage it all. ClearCube now, however, sees a wider opportunity to sell the tools to firms using third-party hardware.


Desktop virtualization is where all the creative work and fun is, Server virtualization is soon going to be , more or less, standardized leaving room for customized desktop virtualization solutions. Firms that gain that experience will go faster with the flow, laggards will have to face extinction, because suddenly this space has got hotter!

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…
