PacificSource does file virtualization with F5

"We recently faced a significant data migration challenge during a system upgrade of our direct-attached disk environment to a clustered Windows storage area network. We recognized that any interruption of access to health plan information or even our own internal business data would be completely unacceptable," said Tim Wolfe, Network Administrator at PacificSource. "The F5 Acopia ARX file storage virtualization solution allowed us to perform all data migration tasks without any downtime and without the need to manually reconfigure client systems and applications. Moreover, by leveraging ARX we have been able to streamline and automate all future data movement."

"PacificSource applied the same level of painstaking diligence in choosing their file management platform as they do in selecting the world-class health plans to offer their customers," said Kirby Wadsworth, Senior Director of Marketing for Data Solutions at F5. "Initially, they selected the F5 Acopia ARX for its non-disruptive capabilities, as well as unmatched performance and scalability. However, they also chose to invest in the ARX solution for the long term as it provided them with the ability to move data whenever they wish, to whatever storage technologies they might choose to use in the future. This translates into significant savings in both operational resources and capital expense."

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…
