Virtualization: Hypervisor portability is key to sustainability!

This is what this news item has to say. Companies are custom-coding too much in the hope of making a quick exit from VMware's VI to another cheaper infrastructure that provides the functionalities of HotMigration and Resource scheduling capabilities. Quoting

As such, Mosso isn't devoting too many resources into developing its environment around VMware. Instead, it will use "the basics like VMotion and DRS" and try not to custom-code too much of the environment. "We've tried not to tie our system too directly to VMware, because we might potentially switch it out for Xen," Bryce said. The company recently finished evaluating Citrix XenServer and will soon evaluate Oracle VM, Bryce said.

With Xen-based virtualization platforms, Bryce said, the philosophy is to provide "the engine and the access, on which you are free to do whatever you want."

The company is also "talking to VMware to help us develop more advanced features, although I don't know how much success we'll have," Bryce said. "VMware is building the tools that 80% of business needs; the problem is, we do things in the remaining 20% that not many people need."

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…
