Cloud Management

Cloud providers protect the security & stability of cloud infrastructures by limiting app management in public cloud services

Grazed from TechnologyNews. Author: Editorial Staff.

Public cloud computing providers offer subscribers as much flexibility as they can, but their first commitment is always to the security and stability of the cloud infrastructure. This means limiting the degree to which subscribers can manage hosted applications.

Blocking application patches

One of the ways service providers limit the degree of application management is by blocking subscribers from installing application patches. Organizations often outsource applications to cloud service providers in order to free themselves from the burden of managing the application. Many administrators are all too happy to walk away from their patch management chores...

Cloud System Management Software Market 2019 - New Research Report at

Grazed from PRWeb.  Author: PR Announcement.

One key trend in this market is the emergence of cloud system management software. In recent years, many large- and medium-sized organizations have become increasingly aware of the significance of cloud system management software solutions and their impact on productivity.

The System Management Software Market can be defined as the management of distributed systems including computer systems in an enterprise. System management involves multiple tasks such as requirement analysis, purchasing, distributing, configuring, and maintenance of the equipment and software with service updates. In addition, it helps to determine problems and its solutions so that the objectives are fulfilled on time. System management is sometimes referred to as management information system (MIS) or information systems. Database management and network management are also a part of system management, which works equally with the process...

Amazon Lambda takes the administration out of cloud computing

Grazed from ARS Technica. Author: Peter Bright.

At its AWS re:Invent cloud computing conference today, Amazon announced AWS Lambda, a way of performing computing in the cloud in response to events without the need for virtual machines, compute instances, or any kind of administration. The usual model when performing computation in cloud services is to create some kind of a persistent application, such as a Web server on a virtual machine.

Sometimes the developer manages everything on the VM. Sometimes aspects of this are abstracted away—Azure's Web roles, for example, leave management of the base operating system and server up to Microsoft, letting developers focus solely on the Web content—but those persistent deployments, with their time-based billing, have become the basic model of cloud computing...

SysFera-DS Version 5.0 for HPC and Cloud Management Directly Visualizes Results, Shortening Simulation Time

Grazed from Sysfera. Author: PR Announcement.

SysFera has introduced a new version of its high performance computing (HPC) and Cloud management software, SysFera-DS version 5.0, featuring immediate visualization of simulation results without downloading and opening results within applications—to gain a significant boost in productivity. As well, for the first time, HPC administrators can create custom web pages for applications improving their ability to tailor the interface to their clients’ research and analysis needs. These new capabilities, along with significant enhancements to the web interface, promote user-friendly features and tighter applications’ integration, so engineers and researchers can run jobs more quickly and preview results faster.

On display next week in SysFera’s booth #3726 at the SC Conference in New Orleans, LA, SysFera-DS v5.0 boosts HPC and Cloud management with its new, better integration with simulation applications. Users gain faster access and more visibility to their output data. Results are previewed from the web browser, eliminating file search and download time regardless of the type of image their simulation creates for output...

Bracket Computing bridges local servers, cloud capacity

Grazed from ZDNet. Author: Heather Clancy.

Stealthy startup Bracket Computing made its debut last month with more than $85 million in backing for its radical virtualization technology, which allows businesses to move computing workloads from cloud to cloud more easily. The vision is to help organizations process applications wherever it makes the most sense from a cost or resource perspectives.

The approach could also be used to bridge operations between on-site servers and those hosted in a cloud service. "When you have a million servers at your disposal, you have the appearance of an infinite resource," said Bracket CEO Tom Gillis. "Our question to ourselves was: can we build a layer that could present applications with highly reliable and secure performance?"...
