When I read the following in SC Magazine, my brain identified and attempted to process so many issues at once that I experienced multiple memory and neural page faults and felt physical pain:
We don’t treat the virtualization servers any different than the physical servers when it comes to security. We treat them the same. Security is security.
This quote is from Virtual reality: Adoption of virtualization, which can be found here (
reading it at SC Mag requires registration; link no long available). The article describes how an IT group from a small town in Florida reduced “42 physical servers to five, and replaced them with 45 VMs.”
You might also be interested to know that the article begins this way: “Please forgive Guy Buzzelli [the CIO] if he sounds a little too matter-of-fact when discussing virtualization.” That statement is kind of like walking through a neighborhood and noticing there’s no flowers and little grass–it’s a bad sign.
