Storage Virtualization: Start-ups sprouting like mushrooms!





Well, the fact that most folks, if you followed the El Reg's Virtualization Symposium, don't get Virtualization and it only gets worse when you make it a two word combination "Storage Virtualization". I did hear Ashlee speak, he's not that obnoxious to hear actually. Did leave half way since I had to leave office as it was late.

Anyways, we were talking about Storage Virtualization. See here:

Storage virtualization continues to gain traction, as evidenced by fresh funding for startups Seanodes and Xkoto today.

Xkoto, based in Toronto, Ontario, announced a $7.5 million Series B round, bringing the database specialist's total funding to $10 million.

The round, led by GrandBanks Capital, also included existing investor GrowthWorks Canadian Fund and has already been earmarked to boost the firm's U.S. presence.

Xkoto, which develops grid software that virtualizes off-the-shelf databases, also reshuffled its management team to support this effort.

Former Novell exec David Patrick will take the CEO's reins from co-founder Albert Lee, who becomes Xkoto's chief strategy officer. The incoming CEO will be based in Boston, Mass., from where he will oversee Xkoto's U.S. push.

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.
