Compellent certifies Novell


Salt Lake City, Utah, March 17, 2008 – Compellent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE Arca: CML) today announced at the Novell BrainShare event that its storage area network (SAN) has been certified with both Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and NetWare 6.5 operating systems, helping make it seamless for Novell administrators to leverage the Compellent SAN to lower storage costs and energy consumption. The Novell Yes Certified designation applies to both Fibre Channel and iSCSI server connections to the Compellent SAN.

As sustainability initiatives become a growing trend, many storage administrators are looking for greener data center solutions, but not at the sacrifice of performance, administration time or higher cost. When paired with Novell technology, Compellent's advanced storage virtualization, automated tiered storage and thin provisioning can help administrators see significant savings on hardware, energy expenses and CO2 emissions.

The Hesperia Unified School District, with 22,000 students in San Bernadino county, Calif., recently consolidated its data storage and Novell NetWare and GroupWise environment on the Compellent SAN. Hesperia IT administrators soon realized significant performance, cost and green benefits.

"With the combined benefits of Compellent and Novell we expect to eliminate 40 servers, all internal server disks, and 10 air conditioning units while implementing a true disaster recovery solution," said James Lincoln, assistant director of information technology at Hesperia Unified School District. "That’s good for the environment and our bottom line. We're now able to focus IT resources on enriching our students' learning experiences."

Energy conservation in the data center has become increasingly critical. Some analysts estimate nearly half of all data centers will not have sufficient power and cooling capacities in 2008.

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…
