In this video from Moabcon 2013, Robert Clyde and Chad Harrington from Adaptive Computing discuss the company’s recent announcement that Adaptive has been named as a “Cool Vendor” in Cloud Management by Gartner.
We believe to be recognized as a ‘Cool Vendor’ by Gartner for our cloud management technology is confirmation of our pioneering work in policy-based optimization for this space,” said Robert Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “Our Moab Cloud Suite allows enterprise IT leaders and cloud architects to maximize cloud return on investment through cost savings in capacity and management complexity. Moab’s ability to perform ongoing service optimization ensures organizations achieve both agility and service performance with their private cloud.”
The software-defined datacenter vision took the industry by storm in 2012. It represents a prescriptive model that brings the benefits of virtualization to the rest of the datacenter. Expect to see the move towards a software-defined datacenter accelerate in 2013. Networking and infrastructure security represent some of the stickiest issues when it comes to the drive to a more agile data center. And because of this strong customer interest in SDDCs, you’ll also see more networking vendors and startups modify their roadmaps to steer towards a software-defined networking strategy.
In this video Rich Wolski, Professor in the Computer Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara and co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Eucalyptus Systems Inc., presents: Eucalyptus — Elastic Utility Computing Architecture for Linking Your Programs to Useful Systems.
Eucalyptus is an open source software infrastructure that implements IaaS-style cloud computing. The goal of Eucalyptus is to allow sites with existing clusters and server infrastructure to host a cloud that is interface-compatible with Amazon’s AWS and (soon) the Sun Cloud open API. In addition, through its interfaces, Eucalyptus is able to host cloud platform services such as AppScale (an open source implementation of Google’s AppEngine), and Hadoop making it possible the “mix and match” different service paradigms and configurations within the cloud. Finally, Eucalyptus is capable of leveraging a heterogeneous collection of virtualization technologies within a single cloud making it possible to incorporate resources that have already been virtualized without modifying their configuration. The talk focuses on specific features of the system that are designed to enable rapid development, prototyping, and deployment of local computing clouds, particularly for debugging and/or application development purposes. It also discusses experiences with hosting the Eucalyptus Public Cloud (EPC) as a free public cloud platform for experimental use and the ability to use the EPC in conjunction with commercial web development services that target AWS, such as Rightscale. Finally, Wolski discusses his experiences in building and supporting open source cloud infrastructure and point to potential future directions that we believe will enable greater innovation.
In this video from Moabcon 2013, Dick Bland and Jérôme Labat from HP present: The New Style of IT: HP Update for Moabcon 2013.
Cloud, Mobility, Security, and Big Data are transforming what the business expects from IT resulting in a “New Style of IT.” The result of alternative thinking from a proven industry leader, HP Moonshot is the world’s first software defined server that will accelerate innovation while delivering breakthrough efficiency and scale.
In this video, Sesha Sai from C2C Consulting presents: Cloud Computing for Education and Training Services.
Cloud Computing offers an excellent Return on Investment for the Education and Training Services. The major factors which influence the education and training services in any developing country include: budget & technical skill constraints, a large number of Stakeholders, and large & disparate content in multiple formats.
