muSOAing for 12/11/10 – Aggregate?

So wwhat is this huge buzz about Cloud Lifecycle management. While the cloud has ploriferated and become the bedrock and foundation for computing in many areas, the speed with which such infrastructures can be setup and mushroom has created it’s own host of headaches. Think about this, you setup a VM, install a bunch of important apps, patches and other utilities. It is humming along and one fine day somebody copies this VM onto his USB drive and voila he has an entire machine with him. Cloud assets are spread across a wide variety of infrastructures, Public, Private and Hybrid cloud infrastructures. Apart from just your VMs you have other physical assets such as storage that the virtual layers control so this magnifies the problem to a larger scale. How do you deal with these myriad components, enter your dearest friend CLM.
