The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) Thursday announced the release of the CSA
Cloud Control Matrix (CCM) Version 3.0, the most comprehensive update to the
industry's gold standard for assessing cloud centric information security
risks. The CCM Version 3.0 expands its control domains to address changes in
cloud security risks since the release of the CSA's seminal guidance domain,
"Security Guidance for Critical Areas of Focus in Cloud Computing version
3.0" while making strides towards closer harmonization of the two.
Having drawn from industry-accepted security standards, regulations, and
control frameworks such as ISO 27001/2, the European Union Agency for Network
and Information Security (ENISA) Information Assurance Framework, ISACA's
Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology, the American
Institute of CPAs Trust Service and Principals Payment Card... (more)
My watered down translation of Long Tail theory is simply the notion that the
aggregate sum of stuff buyers take in small, infrequent quantities will
invariably outstrip the aggregate sum of the most popular counterparts.
Research evidence is beginning to corroborate what we saw some three years
ago: There is a Long Tail in Cloud Computing. Consider some well accepted
research points from IDC and others of late:
The Cloud Computing market will hit USD $42 Billion by 2012 Of that, more
than 50% will comprise business process applications (the stuff we all use
daily to run companies big and small)
So, I can infer then that some $20 Billion will comprise the 2012 feed bag
from which all the little cloud computing piggies will line up at the trough
to consume. Not a bad market, from 10,000 feet away. But here's the thing.
The cloud computing market is already becoming pre... (more)

Yesterday, 23 November 2009, an Atlas V rocket from the United Launch
Alliance successfully launched the Intelsat 14 satellite (IS-14). Liftoff
of the Atlas V occurred at 1:55am ET. The satellite separated successfully
two hours later. Today we received word that the satellite’s solar
panels have deployed and all is well. Great launch!
There is something really significant about this satellite that many
enterprise technologists will be paying attention to. Besides its payload
of now traditional satellite communications, it carries a specially hosted
payload known as the Internet Router in Space, or IRIS.
According to Cisco’s Steve Boutelle, “We believe IRIS will extend
broadband services on demand in the sky. The Cisco IRIS payload will merge
communications received on various frequency bands and transmit them to
multiple users. Once in service, the IRIS pay... (more)

I have seen a lot of discussion on the subject of layering of software images
to deliver virtualized client computing. There are some interesting
opportunities here but also a number of serious potential issues.
There are number of different ways the word ‘layers’ is used in client
computing. Firstly, when we think of our software stack we unsurprisingly
think of the layers that make up that stack. Those layers are typically
operating system, applications and user environment. We then think about how
we manage those layers, either as the complete unwieldy stack or
individually. As such we are thinking about layers as a handy shortcut for
what we want to manage individually.
Another way that the word ‘layers’ is being used is as a way of splitting
the stack into a large number of separate layers. A number of small vendors
are launching... (more)
The holiday season is always a time of excitement, anticipation, and good
Clearly, mobile is at the heart of all three! I just spent $300 on new
smartphones for my family and upgraded our plans to 1200+ minutes, 500+ text
messages, and tens of mega bytes per month.
That does not even include everything I do with my business phone!
If this is any indication, the mobile data traffic will far exceed the
projections from the Cisco Visual Networking Index in many markets!
With this backdrop, the Cisco Mobility team is doubly excited because today,
as part of our ongoing efforts to enable the mobile Internet transformation,
Starent Networks is now a part of Cisco.
As the new Cisco Mobile Internet Technology Group, under the leadership of
Ashraf Dahod, former Starent CEO, Starent’s employees will continue their

Like it or not, some enterprises have already entered a post-PC world --
where their business communication network must accommodate new user-driven
choices. These include traditional applications, mobile apps, social apps and
operating systems; various server architectures; and an array of mobile
devices ranging from smartphones to tablets and other mobility tools. Are you
experiencing this phenomenon? If not, you will soon. Moreover, this latest
business technology trend has huge ramifications.
Cisco’s Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG) conducted extensive
research and analysis to uncover key insights about BYOD (“bring your own
device”) and desktop virtualization trends in U.S. enterprises. The Cisco
IBSG Horizons BYOD and Virtualization study surveyed 600 enterprise IT
leaders from 18 industries.

My how time flies, seems like just yesterday (back in 2008) that I did a
piece titled Politics and Storage, or, storage in an election year V2.008 and
if you are not aware, it is 2012 and thus an election year in the U.S. as
well as in many other parts of the world. Being an election year it's not
just about politicians, their supporters, pundits, surrogates, donors and
voters, it's also a technology decision-making and acquisition year (as are
most years) for many environments.
Similar to politics, some technology decisions will be major while others
will be minor or renewals so to speak. Major decisions will evolve around
strategies, architectures, visions, implementation plans and technology
selections including products, protocols, processes, people, vendors or
suppliers and services for traditional, virtual and cloud data infrastructure
