Symantec teams up with ChangeBase to ease Virtualization testing

While testing might seem a easy and an unimportant area (Can you imagine an "architect" guy was wondering what test, development terms were doing in the design doc yesterday), it is the platform where people validate their assumptions and get on to make more fact-based decisions.

I think Symantec is on a good and sturdy path. I have been wondering lately about these firms, especially the bigger ones like Symantec and McAfee. Talking to several of the folks within these firms helped me understand their stance and where they should find themselves in the coming 2-5 years.

The companies claim that the software can report comprehensively on any issues within two minutes.

ChangeBase offers a software platform which automates the majority of the manual work done around application packaging/management.

Symantec said that quality assurance is an essential process to ensure the smooth migration process, as 70 per cent of the time is spent fixing recurring problems found by installing and running the applications.

The ChangeBase AOK suite will automate this process, and offers an Altiris SVS layering technique which provides each installed application with a protected environment.


Here's the scoop.

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…
