Garter Data Center: Brocade presents Data Center Fabric Architecture

Another *.ppt or is it really worthwhile something. I on one side am excited with all these developments, but I just hope that consumers are seeing this as the beginning on an era and decide wisely!

The new Brocade DCF architecture provides several tangible and significant advantages compared to alternative approaches, including:

    -- The Brocade DCF is a policy-based, application-driven architecture. It
adapts and responds to the changing needs for managing applications and
data. It also helps ensure that important data center services -- such
as data security, encryption, backup, and replication -- are
automatically available based on defined policies, and that they do not
encumber the infrastructure when not in use.
-- The Brocade DCF simplifies and optimizes important new technologies
such as server virtualization. The vast majority of virtual servers
connect to networked storage, and Brocade is using its deep storage
networking experience to optimize and automate these connections,
helping customers to simplify their environments and operations.
-- The Brocade DCF provides customers with investment protection. It
enables customers to leverage their existing IT resources -- including
servers, storage, and SANs -- seamlessly incorporating them into the
evolving data center fabric. As a result, the Brocade DCF maximizes
cost savings while minimizing disruption and risk.
-- The Brocade DCF provides customers with unparalleled choices. Brocade
is working with industry-leading storage, server, and systems partners
to ensure maximum compatibility and choice for customers within the
Brocade DCF architecture. Customers can enjoy best-in-class solutions
for servers, storage, protocols, virtualization techniques, and
management tools.

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…
