VMware ESX best practices book

I didn't see any draft or get any complimentary copy so I can't talk about the contents so buy if you know its worth a buy.

The economic and practical benefits of virtualization continue to make it one of the hottest technologies. These benefits include the capability to consolidate the workloads of underutilized servers on fewer machines, and the capability to run multiple and different operating systems simultaneously. VMware continues to be the leader in the field, particularly when it comes to industrial-strength, enterprise-level applications. However, with the power provided by VMware ESX also comes some complexity. You typically need to hire a consultant to come in and help with choosing hardware, establishing good candidates for virtualization, choosing installation methods, installing, configuring, using, and even migrating machines. Now, however, Edward Haletky has written a book that provides all that information, and more, in a very accessible fashion. After you have read this book, you will be ready to use this extremely powerful tool efficiently and effectively.

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.
