EMC heads to the clouds with PI purchase

We are moving towards the age of:

  • Personalization
  • Globalization
  • Conceptualization
  • Ideation
  • Real-world, Real-time Visibility
And I can tell you more about it but when firms start buying little start-ups, like this PI's purchase, we know that the time has come to move on to that age. I'll soon be telling you soon how the "Multi-mapped covergence" will still make most of the good and well running firms, big and small, fail and others, again big and small, move on to the next wave and sustain for the coming 50-60 years (If they still can do their own re-startup 30 year cycle, well).

That will come, trust me! At some point in time you will see Avastu's community sourcing take off, unfortunately I am not considering to sell at at any point in time. Avastu will "surf-2-shore" for a long time to come.

Anyways here's EMC's purchase of PI:

Enterprise storage Relevant Products/Services giant EMC Relevant Products/Services has acquired Pi Corp., a small technology start-up that has yet to release any products on its own. EMC did not disclose the purchase price, but did announce plans to hire Pi's founder Paul Maritz as president of a new Cloud Infrastructure and Services division.

Maritz is a 14-year veteran of Microsoft Relevant Products/Services who left the company in 2000 and went on to serve as chairman of the Grameen Foundation, the innovative nonprofit founded by Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus.

While information about Pi's technology is limited, EMC CEO Joe Tucci offered some clues about the company's cloud-computing plan.

Ubiquitous Computing

Cloud computing, for those unfamiliar with the term, refers to the strategy of data Relevant Products/Services and applications existing on a shared network rather than on individual users' computers. With cloud computing, users have greater access to shared resources.

Tucci emphasized that Pi's technology is complementary to EMC's emerging cloud infrastructure Relevant Products/Services strategy. And, he said, Maritz will provide leadership to help position EMC at the leading edge of cloud computing and personal-information management.

Maritz described his vision as "allowing consumers and corporate information workers to create, repurpose, store, share and access personal information in novel ways, taking advantage of the ubiquity of computing power and a new interconnected world."

I will send out emails personally to those who are using my link(s) on their sites.

Thanks much for your co-operation and hope you enjoy the new site and its cool new features :-)

Not like the site is unlive or something..on the contrary, its beginning to get a lot of attention already. Well most of the work is done, you don't have to worry about anything though:

Although, I would urge however that you do change the permalinks, especially on your blogs etc yourselfThis blog is not going away anywhere but within a few months, I will consider discontinuing its usage. I won't obviously do …

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…
