Virtualization: Whats newsworthy and whats not!

I get occassionally comments from users, one such comment prompt me to write this little post:

"Wow! It's a news-worthy event when Virtual Iron actually convinces someone to buy their software?"

My answer to that is yes!


  • It tells about Virtualization adoption and that we are adopting Virtualization all the time.
  • It tells us that we need to look at parties like Virtual Iron as well because we are looking at virtualization solutions.
  • This is a blog, I develop strategies based on the amount of virtualization adoption that is taking place.
  • I would even like to contact or be contacted by Virtual Iron clients to learn about their best practices.
  • We cover virtualization on a broader scale; should Sun, Oracle, IBM, XenSource, VMware, Citrix, Parallels or any other virtualization vendor, open source or proprietary, deploy their solutions on their client base.
  • 95% of the customer base is yet to be virtualized and we are very curious which vendor is "truly" working towards helping clients to think on the next-level strategy and business transition.
So is Virtual Iron's deployment news worthy? You bet it is!

In respond to a comment to this post of mine.


  1. Any press on virtualization is a good press. The more use of virtualization technology only benefits all users as vendors will be forced to innovate and improve their product offerings.
    We currently use Virtual Iron 4.1 and spent a year reviewing different vendors. Virtual Iron has the key features and capabilities that are the core reason for deploying a virtualized server array. With the release of 4.1 it has only gotten better with less overhead and more features. We are running Virtual Iron in a production environment and it has held up to the demands of our business. I strongly suggest a look at VI before you make decide on a vendor.

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…
