Cloud Computing Echo: EMC attempts to woo consumers with Decho

In my upcoming keynote on Cloud Computing and Privacy, I will take you all down the road of privacy. How privacy has evolved through centuries and where we stand today. I have repeatedly stressed on the RCC, a Regulated Cloud with its Keynesian touch and with acceptable levels of, with some stentorian control where necessary, freedom.

Cloud security concerns are huge and out there in the open. As governmental interventionism goes to rescuing other parts of the industry such as Auto industries ,Open and GM, (GM is Opel's Mom since 1929) pleading the state's help.

Anyways, all I am saying is that, yes there is a great opportunity but there also lurks a massive danger.

Anyways, here's the news:

He was Microsoft’s general manager of platform strategy but left earlier this year to join Maritz at Pi. At Microsoft he wrote a platform economics blog. In his review of Nicholas Carr's The Big Switch Fitzgerald wrote: "Victory will go to those who best exploit both the cloud and the edge of the network." Aha!

EMC served up its CFO, David Goulden, to say what the Decho score is, a mere VP being insufficient and there being no Decho boss: "There is an immense, untapped business opportunity as personal information management inevitably migrates into the cloud. By bringing Mozy and Pi together to form Decho as a new subsidiary, we are creating a focused organization that can deliver on the promise of cloud-based personal information management and can help individuals everywhere preserve, manage and enrich the information most important to them.”

It will do this not by selling us software to manage our growing and overlapping silos of personal data but by offering cloud-based services to hook it all up and serve it back to us.

Some of us have online bank accounts. Some of us use Flickr and other services to share photos. Some of us have precious paper documents - wills, ownership deeds, share certificates, that sort of thing - stored in solicitor's safes. There's two trends here. Physical data and things like music CDs and paper documents and bank branches are migrating online. As they do there is a growing need to organise the stuff and both control and enable access to it online too - let friends see my photos but keep the identity thieves out.

What won't change

Links/Referrals: I will be redirecting the links (all links which you may have cross-posted) to IdeationCloud.com - so you don't have to do anything in all your posts and links. 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…
