Research Group names HDS the #1 in Block Level Virtualization


The results were attained following structured interviews with Fortune 1000 storage professionals across a variety of vertical industries. Throughout the last 10 iterations of TheInfoPros Storage Study, spanning five years, Hitachi Data Systems has consistently led in customers ratings for both in-use block-level virtualization and near-term deployments.

The steady stream of positive customer feedback speaks to the strength of our storage solutions and our unique ability to deliver these in a services-oriented approach, said Hu Yoshida, CTO, Hitachi Data Systems. Hitachi is the only company to deliver storage virtualization in a scalable, enterprise-class, storage control unit, which in turn, provides the capability to aggregate the storage services of the control unit to enhance lower level storage resources. Combining storage services like thin provisioning in the control unit with virtualization of external storage creates a powerful combination designed to dramatically improve storage utilization across all tiers of virtualized storage. The results of this study clearly demonstrate that there is strong demand for enterprise-class storage virtualization, and were pleased to be recognized as the first choice among the Fortune 1000.

The results of our study show that the number of block-virtualization users are growing sizably, with deployments nearly doubling from 2006 to 2007, said Robert L. Stevenson, managing director, Storage Practice, TheInfoPro. Hitachi Data Systems has proven time and again that it is the vendor of choice when it comes to helping customers leverage the best virtualization technologies to manage burgeoning data growth and mitigate risk factors.

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…
