VI plugin Guide by Andrew Kutz

It's not supported by VMware, so you're warned ;-)

The doors are opening...What I mean by this, expect a detailed blog article by me on it("the doors opening").

This paper focuses on educating developers on:

Client Plugin Architecture
This includes where plugins are installed, how the VI client discovers local plugins and ones advertised on the VC server, and finally how to create a client plugin.

Server Extension Architecture
Includes how to register server extensions and how to make client plugins centrally available.

Tomcat Architecture
Discusses how the VirtualCenter Tomcat installation impacts server extension daemons.

Database Schema
Review the new VirtualCenter database tables that are related to extensions.

Creating Windows Installers
Reveals some problems with creating Windows Installers for server extensions.

Namespaces
Details the namespaces and assemblies VMware provides to create plugins and extensions.

Terminology
Coins new terminology that developers can use when discussing the above concepts.

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.
