CA Session at Cloud Expo OK; I’m not skipping or anything, but I am happy. CA Inc., obviously on the path to acquire more and more cloud technology providers in order to build up its own capabilities for cloud computing, is joining the ever-louder chorus of those in our industry recognizing that enterprises want, no, they demand, better monitoring of cloud providers. CA this week announced it has agreed to buy a company called Nimsoft, Inc., a Redwood City, CA-based provider of IT performance and availability monitoring solutions for small and mid-sized companies and managed service providers (MSPs). It’s supposedly all for cash, a transaction valued at $350 million. This latest announcement follows CA’s recent acquisitions of Cassatt, NetQoS and Oblicore, as well as the planned acquisition of 3Tera. What does this mean for CA? Chiefly that it will greatly extend CA’s... (more)

VMware's Cloud VDC-OS a "groping in the dark" stint?

Timothy really wrote a cool post. Since Ashlee has left The Register, you just don't come across a well written post. I am by no means saying that Ashlee wrote any meaningful stuff (Its a joke, Ashlee) but he did make us all smile. Heck its really cloudy out there, it doesn't make any sense and a lot of vaporware might float. Amazon is probably the only one that is seriously building a business around it. Google is beginning to work hard with Gear, AppEngine and a lot of other smaller vendors like 3Tera, ParaScale, FlexiScale are doing a great job there. Anyways here's what Timothy has to say about VMware's stint at Cloud Computing: Whenever I see such announcements, I never see anyone say this: Our product is not just about managing Linux and Windows, whether physical or virtual. But rather managing all kinds of servers in the installed base, and that includes AS/4... (more)

Mmm... (Tech)Crunchy.

Whew! It's been a busy week as I've been preparing with new client, 360desktop, for next week's third annual TechCrunch50 event in San Francisco. If you're not familiar, TechCrunch50 is a major global competition conference for start-ups where they have the opportunity to pitch themselves to nearly 2,000 attendees, including corporate buyers, VCs and angels and some very prestigious members of the press. Ryan was lucky enough to attend the event last year with client 3Tera and this year it's my turn! 360desktop is a consumer media platform that brings the Web and the desktop together as a 360° Web-enabled desktop. The free Windows download literally transforms a user's desktop into a 360° workspace, giving them an almost unlimited amount of desktop space. The program has some incredible new features and we can't think of a better opportunity than TechCrunch50 to ... (more)

A Cloudy Future for Networks and Data Centers in 2010

Hosting Pavillion at Cloud Expo The message from the VC community is clear – “don’t waste our seed money on network and server equipment.” The message from the US Government CIO was clear – the US Government will consolidate data centers and start moving towards cloud computing. The message from the software and hardware vendors is clear – there is an enormous investment in cloud computing technologies and services. If nothing else, the economic woes of the past two years have taught us we need to be a lot smarter on how we allocate limited CAPEX and OPEX budgets. Whether we choose to implement our IT architecture in a public cloud, enterprise cloud, or not at all – we still must consider the alternatives. Those alternatives must include careful consideration of cloud computing. Cloud 101 teaches us that virtualization efficiently uses compute and storage resources i... (more)
