Virtual Iron signs global reseller agreement with Dell

Both Dell and Virtual Iron have a CEO on a war-footing. That helps companies define their "next-level" strategy much faster than the ones who aren't ready for change.

The news snippet:

Virtual Iron Software (, a provider of enterprise-class server virtualization and virtual infrastructure software, announced a new worldwide authorized reseller agreement with Dell Corporation. Dell will work through Virtual Iron's distribution channel and resell the software to end-users as part of an extensive portfolio of server virtualization and storage offerings.

Dell servers provide an ideal platform for Virtual Iron and virtualization is a key component of Dell's scaleable enterprise strategy that aims to help customers cost-effectively scale, improve utilization and simplify IT operations. Virtual Iron simplifies enterprise server virtualization with a comprehensive solution that is easy to use and easy to afford. Many of Virtual Iron's existing customers run on the Dell Precision and Dell PowerEdge server platforms.

"We're running Virtual Iron on Dell PowerEdge servers and getting great performance and huge operational cost savings," said Paul Joncas, president and co-founder of Meganet Communications, Inc., a regional hosted server provider serving the New England area. "The efficiencies and advantages we gain using Dell and Virtual Iron translate directly into increased service levels and better performance for our hosted customers."

"End users are asking for a choice in server virtualization solutions as they look to refresh and 'virtualize' their data centers at multiple tiers including servers, network, and storage," said Mark Bowker, Analyst with Enterprise Strategy Group. "Virtual Iron's reseller agreement with Dell helps to position these options in front of the customer during the evaluation and purchasing process helping Virtual Iron become increasingly visible in a rapidly growing marketplace."

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.
