10 or 100 Virtualization vendors to watch in 2008?

CIO.com is carrying this news while a lot of other virtualization vendors are totally ignored:

They missed out:

Electric Cloud
Amazon Cloud
HP's VO/E
VMlogix
Surgient
Catbird
and many more that have equal, if not more, value-add to a Virtual environment.

In my opinion, the ones you really have to watch out of these are:

Embotics
Marathon Technologies
CiRBA
BlueLane
Akorri

Here's the list of CIO's pick. Next time I prefer a poll with a list of 100 vendors and let the consumers, clients, community decide.

  2. For some very simple reasons:
    - They are Virtualization 3.0 ready (or are heading towards that)
    - We need to focus the next level strategy, these firms are also taking effort to provide that.
    - Except Akorri, I've spoken to the rest, and they seem to be very strong in their product line
    - They also take efforts to evangelize
    - They take effort in getting heard, with some of them I regularly chat so I also know that they are constantly working on that next level

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…
