Texas Instruments invests in VirtualLogix

Texas Instruments (TI) has made an undisclosed equity investment in virtualization software company VirtualLogix. The companies have agreed to collaborate on future Linux-based virtualization technology using TI processors, with an apparent focus on wireless applications and network access devices.

VirtualLogix has long supported TI DSPs with its VLX-DM (digital media) product targeting set-top boxes (STBs), and it offers a version of VLX-NI (VLX for Network Infrastructure) that is optimized for TI's DSPs. For its part, TI recently bundled an evaluation version of VLX-DM with select DaVinci DSP and RISC/DSP development boards.

VirtualLogix's Linux-based VLX products, which also include a VLX-MH (mobile handset) version used in Grundig Mobile's Grundig U900 design, comprise a small scheduler and other nanokernel components designed to divvy up a computer system's resources between multiple operating system instances, says VirtualLogix. Touted advantages include reduced bill-of-material costs, legacy OS/application reuse, software failure containment, and license segregation.

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…
