Storage vendors go ga-ga over Oracle VMs

And why the heck would you care about Oracle VMs? Well Humphrey thinks otherwise:

Who needs a hypervisor just for Oracle? Lots of enterprise folk, some say. "Products like Oracle VM can be excellent tools that enable IT to increase their server utilization, and dramatically reduce complexity and overall total cost of ownership," said IDC analyst John Humphreys in a prepared statement.

At least one other analyst isn't so sure enterprises are ready to use different hypervisors for different applications in the fashion Oracle's announcement implies. "It remains early days for standards that handle the control and movement of virtual machines across virtual infrastructures sourced from different vendors," writes Illuminata analyst Gordon Haff in his blog today. "It’s perhaps more thinkable that Oracle database and application servers might be kept independent from a general virtual infrastructure than would be the case with other, often less business-critical, applications."

Anyways this is a clear message to VMware , the market leader in virtualization: Change the game, get into apps!

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…
