Fusepoint Launches Virtualization Solutions with VMware Service Provider Program



Press Release:

Fusepoint Managed Services, a leading provider of infrastructure and IT services, today announced that it has joined the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP). In adopting this program and offering VMware, Fusepoint will now offer managed hosting solutions running on VMware across physical and virtual servers for both large enterprise and small to medium sized businesses, making it one of the first fully-managed service providers in Canada to be authorized.
VSPP incorporates a new licensing model that makes the industry-leading VMware Infrastructure suite available to Fusepoint on a per-virtual machine, per-month basis. With this
new program, Fusepoint offers managed infrastructure hosting solutions using VMware to its
customers, improving the management of existing applications and giving customers just-intime
resource allocation and disaster recovery within the solution.
Rest of the story here.

Honestly this is far from a breaking news, what is their differentiated strategy? Are you offering something new?

Although I am beginning to see some dangerous subscription model issues when I read this " on a per-virtual machine, per-month basis".

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.
