VMware: From Glory days to Gory days

ArsTechnica thinks so.

Also: The comment of What Maritz said about Netscape are also notable. Will he try to cut off Microsoft's air supply? (He knows the guys inside-out) but there could also be a whammer surprise move: Joining hands with Microsoft to go after the x86 market. There are more players in the market. Who isn't doing virtualization these days? Storage firms, Security firms, heck even a Bank (Credit Suisse) wants a piece of it! (They are the coolest when it comes to the whole heterogeneous OR environment"

Although the removal of Greene has come as a shock to many, insiders say that her replacement has been on the cards for some time. Greene's limited business skills were overwhelmed by both VMware's rapid success and the subsequent shifts in the marketplace. Maritz is a hardened fighter willing to do whatever it takes to win; during Microsoft's browser war with Netscape, Maritz is claimed to have said that Microsoft would "cut off Netscape's air supply." Greene's relationship with EMC is also reported to be fractious, with Greene wanting to deal with EMC as little as possible.

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.
