Gartner: India looking forward to Microsoft's Virtualization with Windows Server 2008

Even as Microsoft Corp., the world’s largest software firm, prepares to globally launch Windows Server 2008, its latest computer server software, in the first week of March, enabling users to potentially cut server costs by up to 40%, India’s information technology (IT) managers say they are still evaluating the benefits of the new offering and will take up to a year to decide whether to upgrade.
One of the core differentiators that Longhorn, as the Windows Server 2008 product was codenamed during development, is the ability to integrate what is called virtualization as part of the offering. Virtualization refers to the technology that allows multiple operating systems and applications to run on the same hardware, thereby eliminating the need for different computers to run different servers.
“The Indian market is still at a very nascent stage in virtualization adoption and current vendors are keen to explore new virtualized products. (But) there will be a significant increase in the adoption of virtualization as a technology trend only in three-four years,” said Naveen Mishra, senior research analyst at tech research and advisory firm Gartner Inc’s India offices.

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…
