Virtualization Conference Europe 2008: ProFoss pushes "open talk" in your face!

Profoss is organising events to spread objective information about professional uses of Free and Open Source based solutions, and is looking for speakers for its next event about virtualisation, taking place in Brussels on 22nd and 23rd january.

If you have deployed a Free or Open Source virtualisation technology in a demanding professional environment, if you're a services company with extended expertise with virtualisation, or if you have developed a virtualisation software under an open source license, or built a product based on open source technology, and want to share your experience with your peers, please don't hesitate to submit your proposal as described below.

Talks should not be commercial shows, but bring interesting information for professional ICT users, based on real world experience. Here is an non-exhaustive list of possible subjects: introduction to virtualisation; deployment experiences with Xen, KVM, VirtualBox, Linux vserver, Solaris Zones, Virtuozzo/OpenVZ; support for virtualisation in hardware (eg processors); how to manage the deployment of a virtualisation technology in a company, without falling in the trap of over-virtualisation; the futur of virtualisation; virtualisation on the desktop; security concerns with virtualisation technologies; impact of virtualisation on the enterprise infrastructure, eg network; virtualisation, only for the OS? ; etc.....

If you are in Europe and have a passion for virtualization, then you would not want to miss it! And besides you may also get to see me speak! I do have a stage-fright issue, so go easy on me!

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.
