2008: Virtualization to remain hot item for Venture Capitalists

Well for the industry as well, I'd say...

"Virtualisation across the board is already hot, and it's going to get hotter," says Maeder. Once applied mainly to servers in the datacentre, this technique will find more applications as enterprises look to get their arms around unruly IT systems. "It's getting more segmented, it's going to pop up in a lot of places, but ultimately it all amounts to the same thing; taking something that's currently uncontrollable, labour-intensive and vulnerable to security breaches and making it safe and more economical to operate."

Another trend Maeder predicts for 2008 is, at long last, the death of antivirus software and other security products that allow employees to install and download any programs they'd like onto their PCs, and then attempt to weed out the malicious code. Instead, products that protect endpoints by only allowing IT-approved code to be installed will become the norm.

"There are much better approaches to dealing with external threats, and those approaches are going to take over," he says.

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…
