Attenda Wins VMware Partner of the Year Award for Its Hosting Services

London - 7th March 2008- Attenda Limited, the Always On Managed Services
company, today announced that it has been awarded the VMware EMEA
Hosting Partner of the Year Award.

The award was presented at the Partners Awards ceremony at the Palais
des Festivals in Cannes, France, as part of VMworld Europe 2008, which
was attended by more than 4,500 IT professionals from around Europe to
experience Europe's largest virtualisation industry event.

The award is a mark of Attenda's success as a leading VMware Service
Provider, bringing to market new virtual infrastructure hosting and
managed services offerings.

Commenting on the Award, Steve Jackson, Director, EMEA Strategic
Partners, VMware, said "VMware is proud to honour Attenda with this well
deserved accolade. As one of our primary EMEA Service Provider Partners,
Attenda is embracing VMware 's datacenter virtualization capabilities in
VMware Infrastructure 3 to create innovative and powerful on-demand
computing services for its clients."

Attenda is utilising VMware technology to power its Real Time
Infrastructure, with the benefits of faster provisioning, higher
availability and lower cost than would be possible with conventional
hardware hosting, whilst also helping the environment by consuming less
power and data centre space.

"Our adoption of VMware in late 2006 transformed our business. By
leveraging the functionality of VMware, we have been able to improve the
agility and availability of our clients applications, whilst providing a
robust DR platform," comments Mark Fowle, CEO, Attenda Limited.

According to industry analysts, utility computing is becoming a key
component of the hosted services industry and Attenda is providing a
broad range of utility computing solutions, from high end managed
services to individual web hosting solutions.

Fowle continues, "This award from VMware and our other certifications
and industry awards, is a great testament to the investments we continue
to make in our shared operations platform Attenda M.O. Time and time
again, it proves to differentiate Attenda and deliver a quality of
service and cost point unmatched in the managed services industry."

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.
