3Tera Introduces Cloud Computing without Compromise

3Tera to Demonstrate, for the First Time, the Foundations for Its Cloudware Computing without Compromise Architecture at the W

3Tera, Inc., the leading innovator of cloud computing technology and utility computing services, announced today at the Web 2.0 Expo its Cloudware architecture for Cloud Computing without Compromise, a flexible architecture empowering customers to build and run large-scale applications in the cloud without compromising their choices of operating system, middleware, security, location, architecture and vendors.

Cloudware is based upon technology proven in 3Tera's award winning AppLogic™ grid operating system. The Cloudware architecture incorporates the fundamental building blocks used in developing today's most popular applications: storage, computing, connectivity, security, and how they all relate to each other in a far reaching architecture for building an open cloud computing system. Cloudware is intended to be vendor agnostic so that any third party vendor’s software can be incorporated in a Cloudware-enabled system. The new architecture will initially support the most popular operating systems — Linux, Solaris and Windows — and is targeted toward clients who want to explore the extreme scale and flexibility of cloud computing infrastructures quickly and easily. More information is available at http://www.3tera.com/Cloud-computing/.

3Tera will be demonstrating for the first time new capabilities that are the foundation for its Cloud Computing without Compromise architecture at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco. Some of the upcoming features include adding support for Solaris and Windows to the existing support for Linux; choice of multiple data centers worldwide, pre-built MySQL clusters, database replication appliances and NAS integration with third-party storage solutions.

“The Web has succeeded by allowing each individual or company to add their own unique capabilities to the system,” said Peter Nickolov, President and CTO, 3Tera, Inc. “Cloud Computing should develop the same way, and 3Tera is demonstrating that there are no architectural obstacles to doing so. Giving developers the ability to write and design their applications and services with whatever software and architecture they choose is at the heart of Cloud Computing without Compromise.”

“With Cloud Computing without Compromise, small shops can have the most modern, world-class IT infrastructure and can grow dynamically as their businesses grow,” said Barry X Lynn, Chairman and CEO, 3Tera, Inc. “Enterprises can always have available the resources they need while only paying for what they consume.”

“If you have vast data center resources, and application deployment is a core competency of your business, leveraging cloud architectures can help make your IT shop more responsive to business needs,” wrote James Staten, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research in a recent report “Is Cloud Computing Ready For the Enterprise,” Forrester Research, Inc., March 2008. “Many hosting providers — and several enterprises — are building clouds using 3Tera AppLogic, a grid engine that has evolved into full-blown cloud computing infrastructure software. This technology works across physical and virtualized servers (sitting below the OS) and has built-in high availability, virtualized storage, and per-use reporting.”

3Tera is currently working with major hosting providers and data center operators in USA, Europe, Japan and Australia to offer together a choice of multiple locations worldwide for the Cloud Computing without Compromise architecture.

“With the introduction of Cloud Computing without Compromise, hosting your application in the cloud just became incredibly easier,” said Todd Abrams, COO and President, Layered Technologies, a 3Tera hosting partner. “Customers not only have the ability to choose their own operating system, middleware, security, vendors, location, etc., they also get their own personally customized virtual private datacenter.”

“We’re looking forward to moving our Web system to the highly scalable and flexible Cloudware platform,” said Oliver Hurst-Hiller, CTO of DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit Web site where teachers and donors connect to help public school students in need. “As a small organization, it can be a challenge to manage the up-front costs and technical complexity of traditional infrastructure technologies when you need to scale rapidly, especially in response to the spikes in Web traffic that often result from media coverage. 3Tera’s AppLogic gives us cost-effective agility and control of our computing infrastructure so we can move at the speed of the teachers and donors we serve.”

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
