Oracle Keynote at Cloud Expo
Cloud Computing News - Oracle co-president Charles Phillips was supposed to
become CEO of CA - for all its muddied skirts still one of the world's
largest software companies - and then those "soul mates forever" billboards
popped up in New York, Atlanta and San Francisco, exposing his near
decade-long bi-coastal double life with wife and son in the East and a
live-in girlfriend in the West.
Six days after Phillips was forced to admit that a picture of him and his
ex-girlfriend canoodling was hanging over Times Square, CA named board member
and executive chairman Bill McCracken CEO. He's the guy who's been running
the company since John Swainson's reportedly forced retirement was announced
in September. An ex-IBMer and an ex-Swainson pal, it was no secret he really
wanted the job.

Security at Cloud Expo
The San Francisco-based Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) has added CA into the
mix, increasing its roster of major players.
The CSA stemmed from discussions at a Cisco event in late 2008, and is
dedicated to promoting security best practices within cloud computing. It
seems that only Oracle is among the missing major technology vendors to date.
The CSA has also yet to add Amazon, eBay, Google, or Yahoo! -- potential
major cloud providers all -- to its roster.
In any case, CA plans to add its identity and access management knowledge to
the alliance’s initiatives and working groups, and provide input into the
next release of the alliance’s Security Guidance for Critical Areas of
Focus in Cloud Computing. Matthew Gardiner, CA's director of security and
compliance, said the company will work with other alliance members including
technology vendors, ... (more)

Virtualization has the power to transform the way business runs IT, and it's
the most important transition happening in IT today. It promotes flexible
utilization of IT resources, reduced capital and operating costs, high energy
efficiency, highly available applications, and better business continuity.
However, the virtualization journey can be long and difficult as
virtualization brings with it a unique set of challenges around the
management and security of the virtual infrastructure. Most organizations
struggle, sooner or later, with workload migrations, visibility and control,
virtual machine (VM) sprawl, and the lack of datacenter agility.
Working with customers, industry analysts and other experts, CA Technologies
has devised a simple four-stage model, shown in Figure 1, to describe the
progression from an entry-level virtualization project to a mature dynamic ... (more)
