storageFOUNDRY Launches Nautilus 4K Software-Defined Data Storage System

San Mateo, California (PRWEB) February 17, 2015

storageFOUNDRY announces the release of the Nautilus 4K (N4K), a high-performance version of their popular software-defined storage (SDS) series. The N4K is specifically designed for the real-time throughput requirements of digital media, high-resolution content, and big data streams.

Nautilus 4K unites the low-cost and versatility of object storage with the high throughput and real-time performance of RAID data storage. Developed for HD, 2K, 4K, and ultra high-definition resolutions, the N4K is an open source platform that features an HA cluster design and delivers expansive bandwidth as the system scales out, even for high frame rate (HFR) workloads delivered to a single workstation.

“With the release of the Nautilus 4K we now have an inexpensive, highly scalable object storage system with the capacity and performance to meet the needs of high-definition media and content analytics,” said Craig Forbes, Solution Architect for Nautilus products. “The data demands from high-res cameras and sensors often exceed the capabilities of both enterprise data systems and cloud-based storage. Nautilus 4K borrows from the design principals of both, while adding in the focused performance needed for today’s content. Based on our in-field experience, we have found that Nautilus is the go-to solution for the Storage of Everything.”

Powered by open source Ceph, the Nautilus series provides object, block, and file-based storage over a number of connectivity options supporting traditional SAN, NAS, and Cloud access. As the proven software core is already a favorite for OpenStack and cloud-service providers, Nautilus is the ideal solution to converging legacy applications and private clouds into a single storage architecture with minimal budget impact.

“With today’s exponential data growth, companies are under immense pressure to store and analyze a greater amount of data, at even faster speeds and much lower costs,” said Brendan Collins, Vice President of Product Marketing, HGST. “Our proven, HelioSeal™ HDD platform and PCIe Flash solutions are synonymous with industry-leading storage capacity, performance, reliability and the lowest total cost of ownership. When coupled with software-defined storage systems, like the Nautilus series, customers can now capture, access and grab real-time insight from their data with speed and confidence like never before.”    

The Nautilus 4K is expandable using local or geo-distributed storage nodes connected using low-cost 10G, 40G, or 56G links, allowing it to scale-out and resize according to need. The current roadmap for the Nautilus series adds support for Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) transfers and NVM Express (NVMe) caching in Q2 2015, further extending the value obtained from off-the-shelf components and technologies. Existing Nautilus systems can be field-upgraded to N4K systems.

Pricing for the Nautilus 4K starts at $ 59,995. For more information visit http://www.storagefoundry.net.

About storageFOUNDRY:

Established in 2013, storageFOUNDRY is a leader in the convergence of OEM-grade storage components and open-platform architectures that embrace scale-out, parallel access and software-defined systems.

Gladinet Releases White Labeled Mobile Clients for Cloud Storage


Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) February 11, 2015

Gladinet has announced the release of white labeled clients for mobile platforms like iOS and Android which makes it easier for service providers to create a fully branded file sync and share solution (EFSS) based on OpenStack SWIFT or any other private cloud storage service. The company previously provided a free, self-service rebranding capability that did not allow mobile clients to be rebranded. The new white labeled mobile clients give small to medium sized service providers a lower entry point than the full branded service which was more easily amortized across large scale deployments.

According to Jerry Huang, Gladinet’s CEO, “We have fulfilled the promise of delivering the white labeled mobile clients based on the needs of many smaller customers and partners. These clients are now available at no additional cost. Search for the ‘Cloud Android Client’, in the Play Store on Android devices or the ‘Cloud Client’ in the App Store on iOS devices.”

The company has further enhanced its service provider offering by providing the capability to brand each tenant separately. This allows a service provider to host the Gladinet platform in their data center while providing each customer with a different web address and their own private branding.

For more information, please visit http://www.gladinet.com/ServiceProvider or checkout our YouTube video.

About Gladinet

Founded in 2008, Gladinet is a growing company, with the number of people who have downloaded its cloud storage access software approaching 2 million. The company provides a brandable enterprise file sync and share platform that can be self-hosted with flexible deployment options. Gladinet’s partners include HP, Amazon, IBM and hundreds of service providers in 26 countries.

AIS Network Delivers High Security Private Cloud and Secure Cloud Services Built on the Microsoft Cloud Platform


McLean, VA (PRWEB) February 12, 2015

The solution is among AISN’s newly launched High Security Cloud Services built on the Microsoft Cloud Platform and geared toward health care, pharmaceutical, government, education and financial services clients.

Our new suite of High Security Cloud Services is built on the robust Microsoft Cloud Platform and will provide customers with the enhanced flexibility and scalability that they expect from the cloud, the ability to maintain data control, enforced stringent data security and 99.999 percent availability.”

Atkinson added that AISN’s “100% Compliance Guarantee” comes standard with hosting solutions and services for clients requiring compliance with HIPAA/HITECH, PCI DSS, FISMA, FERPA, SOX, GLBA, and other regulatory standards.

By leveraging the Microsoft Cloud Platform, AISN offers an adaptable environment that reduces costs and time, provides vast resources and services, and supports future growth with virtually any existing infrastructure. Businesses with existing investments in VMware and Citrix XenServer will find that the Windows-based cloud platform allows users to manage centrally different hypervisors with support for Windows Server Hyper-V, VMware, vSphere and Citrix XenServer.

We engineer, customize and manage high-performance, secure cloud and disaster recovery solutions. Our clients never worry about whether their IT environment can pass a HIPAA, PCI, FISMA, SOX or other compliance audit, because we pass ours 100% of the time. We value highly giving our clients all of the personalized attention that they deserve, while also helping them to audit their infrastructure, reduce their IT compliance risk, avoid costly regulatory mistakes and lower costs for their business and their customers.

AAPOR Releases Big Data Report: What is Big Data and How to Unlock its Full Potential


Deerfield, Illinois (PRWEB) February 16, 2015

To unlock the great potential of Big Data for the public good, several important issues have to be resolved regarding quality, science and ethics. One common misconception is the belief that sheer volume of data can compensate for any other deficiency in the data. The American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) released a report on what constitutes Big Data, current uses, how it is changing survey research and other ‘classical’ research methods, and recommendations on creating a framework of best practices and ethics.

Using Big Data, such as social media, sensor and transactional data, is a scientific challenge. Unless it is treated as such, we are destined to make ill-informed decisions about public policy or measures that impact quality of life. Survey or economic research, for example, has been held to high standards of conduct in the last decades. If used right, Big Data can shed light on new issues, small populations and create large cost savings, all benefiting policy, society and public opinion research.

Highlights of recommendations for better use of Big Data include:

Public-Private Partnerships: Data ownership is not well defined and there is no clear legal framework for the collection and subsequent use of Big Data. There is a need for public-private partnerships to ensure data access and reproducibility. It is important that professional communities, like AAPOR, work with federal statistical agencies on developing guidelines and building capacity in this field, such as the creation or propagation of shared cloud computing resources.

New models of privacy protection are required: Data ownership is not well defined and there is no clear legal framework yet for the collection and subsequent use of Big Data. Most users of digital services have no idea that their behavior data may be re-used for other purposes. New models of privacy protection are required, as existing models are quickly outdated by technological advancements.

Raising public and media awareness of risks and benefits of Big Data: Most users of digital services are unaware of the fact that data formed out of their digital behavior may be reused for other purposes, for both public and private good. Organized efforts to increase public awareness and provide training for journalists to improve data-driven journalism are critical.

Collaboration for growth: Keeping up with the research and development in the Big Data area is extremely difficult for a single organization or professional. AAPOR recommends further collaboration across the private and public sector and professional communities to help understand and address key challenges and provide educational opportunities for professionals. For example, the United Nations Secretary-General has asked an Independent Expert Advisory Group to make concrete recommendations on bringing about a data revolution in sustainable development.

Disclosure and transparency standards for Big Data: Using Big Data in statistically valid ways is a challenge. A code of standards of disclosure and transparency when using Big Data in survey research is recommended. AAPOR is uniquely positioned to offer this tool to the professional community drawing on its existing industry Transparency Initiative.

It transfers the exhaustive work of vulnerability scanning, identification and validation to experts who do it every day, allowing an organization’s IT staff to concentrate on prevention and remediation.

“The nature of the ongoing monitoring gives IT staff members immediate feedback on actions they’ve taken to fix the issues identified by Lifeguard and whether they are effective or still at risk,” said Mark Wolfgang, president and CEO of Shorebreak Security Services. “The interface includes an intuitive and secure web dashboard that provides a live snapshot of activity and potential problems.

Lifespan Therapies Engages Quantopix Technologies to Develop Cloud Based Practice Management Software


Vestal, New York (PRWEB) January 20, 2015

Quantopix Technologies, LLC is proud to announce an agreement with Lifespan Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech and Language Pathology Services, PLLC of King Ferry, NY to develop a cloud based Therapy Practice Management Software to manage their practice that provides physical and occupational therapy and speech and language pathology services.

The original program to manage many aspects of their clinical therapy practice was built in-house at Lifespan and deployed on individual laptops. Lifespan outsourced the effort to migrate this program to a cloud server, allowing their staff to work anywhere while sharing the most up-to-date information through a common database. Now, and with the help of Quantopix Technologies, this project moves to the next level of automation and data management to ensure that clinical therapists remain sharply focused on helping their patients and on perfecting their services.

Quantopix builds on decades of experience in data management and database related projects to help clients make better business decisions, streamline their processes, and enhance their services. “We are very excited to extend our technology services to health care practitioners,” said Al Sabawi, President and CEO at Quantopix. “Unlike normal business data, health related data is highly regulated and has to be managed to a strict standard”

Jelastic and FAST.hit Form Down-to-Earth Computing Cloud

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) January 14, 2015

Jelastic, Inc., the first company that combined Unlimited PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and Container-Based IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) into one solution, has announced their partnership with FAST.hit, a leading hosting provider based in Perth, Western Australia.

Frost and Sullivan recently reported that Australia’s demand for cloud services is elevated by the increased use of data intensive applications, which necessitates the use of back-end cloud applications needed to store and analyse this data. Cost saving continues to be a key push factor for cloud with organisations reporting an average IT cost savings of 12% through the use of cloud computing services. In 2013, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), which together make up the Australian cloud computing market, generated revenues of $ 1.23 billion.

“We’re excited to kick-off our partnership with FAST.hit and thrilled to finally penetrate the Australian market, ” said Ruslan Synytsky, Jelastic CEO and Co-founder. “Customer demand for scalable, easy-to-deploy cloud solutions is on the rise, and we are seeing tremendous traction in Australia, where FAST.hit already has an impressive customer base and loyal developer following. Our alliance with FAST.hit further validates Jelastic’s ongoing commitment to deliver a superior Container-Based PaaS and IaaS solution in dynamic, high-growth technology regions, such as Australia, and Asia-Pacific.”

FAST.hit is a service-centric web hosting provider offering a full set of web hosting products to government, small businesses and enterprises since 2003. Partnership with Jelastic marks the company’s official entry into the Australian cloud computing market.

“We’ve considered a number of management tools for our cloud hosting product line. Jelastic is a clear winner for us and for our customers,” said Chris Bauer, FAST.hit’s Managing Director.

Jelastic cloud server technology is great because it allows customers to manage complex application environments including the full web and data tier. Unlike maintaining traditional virtual servers, customers don’t need the server administration skills and time investment to maintain a secure cloud.

“Since the term cloud computing was first used, it became surrounded by clouds of mystery and uncertainty. Jelastic casts those clouds away, exposing the cloud computing, and in our case cloud server hosting, in the most transparent and easy-to-manage way. With Jelastic, FAST.hit is able to bring cloud servers to mainstream users here in Australia,” said Bauer.

Jelastic’s proven technology is deployed by over 150,000 developers and more than 50 private and public cloud providers around the world.

From the beginning Jelastic has been the pioneer PaaS using containers virtualization technology for application deployment/lifecycle management/scalability and ZERO CC. In addition, Jelastic provides unique vertical scaling for all application containers with load spikes and variable loads in general. The granular vertical scaling provides the ability to scale up and down stateful apps, legacy apps and apps that were not designed for horizontal scaling, resulting in transparent pricing for end customers.

Jelastic supports popular programming languages such as Java, PHP, Ruby, Node.js, Python and .NET and provides the maximum application density, the fastest deployment model and the easiest management for private, public and hybrid clouds, all while retaining the flexibility to customize infrastructure and application configurations. A wide choice of software stacks by default, plus Docker and Cartridges templates, plugins for Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, NetBeans IDEs and other technologies integrated inside make Jelastic a turnkey cloud with a complex solution.

About FAST.hit

Fast Hit Pty Ltd (trading as FAST.hit Web Hosting) is a privately owned web hosting company based in Perth, Western Australia. It provides a full range business web hosting services to customers in Australia and Asia-Pacific countries. The company operates a state-of-the-art network infrastructure from data centers in Perth, Western Australia and Sydney, New South Wales. It currently offers managed hosting, network outsourcing, cloud servers and data center space.
