Microsoft Virtualization tests coming up

It has got my notice some months back. I have tried the older versions back in 2005/2006 and was honestly not impressed but today with their Hyper-V and the SCVMM (a part of the whole SC) which is far better and mature than what Virtual Center from VMware (if you'd like to believe Gartner).

So what am I announcing here?

  1. I am already into Hyper-V testing. In the coming days/weeks we'll dive into many facets of Hyper-V. We'll get into middleware: We'll test SQL Servers 2000, 2005 (x86 and x64 version), Exchange, Sharepoint etc. So this will be really heavy. I will be asking other guys around me, from time to time, to do the needful as I am short on time to do everything ;-)
  2. We will try to also manage the VI through the SCVMM. We really want to see what the Microsoft people say about the product being much better than VC from VMware.
Expect more stuff here and also on the ITtoolbox site. It has nothing to do with this post from Malhotra who decided to "manage VMware" with his SC. We are independent folks, we like to see the truth as it is ;-)

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…
