In a previous episode of Technometria, Bogamil Bolgansky of VMWare gave a great overview of the concept of virtualization and how it is becoming more popular in enterprises. Now, Greg Ness of Blue Lane Technologies joins Phil and Scott to discuss the special security issues that virtualization creates.
Ness makes it clear that IT professionals must quickly re-learn old habits, particularly with the increasing popularity of virtualization. He reviews the theoretical differences between traditional security issues and those under VM and also gives some of the technical problems caused by those differences. His discussion forms a useful bookend with Bolgansky's more general review.
