Private Cloud: Dell has its eyes on it

Cute to see that people can so totally make it all a different picture that what it is.

Paul Bell, president of Dell Americas, told eWEEK Nov. 4 at a roundtable discussion at the Dreamforce conference in San Francisco that private cloud computing is indeed on the company's agenda and that it is a trend in which customers are beginning to invest.

"This [private cloud enterprise] is definitely on our radar. We work with partners like Rackspace, which has been supporting smaller businesses, trying to leverage hosting that way. We are also seeing a growing number of customers trying to built it [their own cloud systems] themselves," Bell said.

As a mainstream supplier of the hardware to put these things together, Dell is coming at this in several ways, Bell said.

"One situation is where we may have a joint [private cloud computing] project with Citrix or VMware -- I think right now we're doing about a third of VMware's [hardware] business -- in the server virtualization market," Bell said.

"Increasingly, our customers are working on technologies such as VDI [virtual desktop infrastructure]," Bell said. "This allows them to do client virtualization. The reality is, there are multiple means to the end state today."

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…
