Vendor Coalition Announces Self-Service Private and Hybrid Cloud Toolset

08/24/2010

newScale, rPath and Eucalyptus Systems today announced an integrated technology platform that will provide an on-ramp to private and hybrid cloud computing in the enterprise.



ebizQ received the following:

The technology combination is designed to help businesses achieve maximum IT agility through cloud computing, integrating infrastructure for private and hybrid clouds with enterprise IT self-service and system automation.

As a preferred delivery partner, MomentumSI will bring enterprise IT organizations self-service private and hybrid clouds built on top of the three vendors’ technologies. This initiative creates a compelling, enterprise-ready option for executives who want to transform their IT departments into internally-managed versions of a public cloud service.

Eucalyptus, newScale and rPath will jointly demonstrate this technology integration in booth 102 at VMworld 2010, to be held August 30-September 2, 2010, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

A recent Forrester Research, Inc. report titled, “You’re Not Ready For Internal Cloud,? stated: “[Internal/private cloud] seems like a no-brainer: faster time-to-market, a fully virtualized environment, flexible chargeback if needed, and all inside your corporate protections. What’s not to love? ... To be ready, [organizations] must first scale operational standardization, automation, and virtualization mountains.?

Interest in self-service private and hybrid cloud computing is surging as enterprise business units press their IT departments to deliver the kinds of simple, on-demand infrastructure services readily available from public clouds like Rackspace or Amazon EC2. Many IT organizations, however, are not ready to make the transition from interest to action. They do not have the infrastructure or process maturity to provide the dynamic elasticity found in the public cloud.

The agility benefits of private and hybrid clouds, however, are compelling. With controlled, consistent services and compute capacity available on-demand for project leads and application development and testing groups, IT can step out of the way and focus on higher-value tasks—freeing up resources and budget for faster product delivery and new innovation.

The integrated solution offered by newScale, rPath and Eucalyptus Systems and delivered by MomentumSI creates an on-ramp to self-service private and hybrid cloud computing and can help organizations quickly maximize business agility.

The platform comprises the following:

· newScale, a pioneer of the self-service IT storefront for the enterprise, provides an e-commerce ordering experience for both private and public cloud services. With newScale’s software, IT can enable on-demand provisioning, enforce policy-based controls, manage the lifecycle for workloads, and track usage for billing.

· rPath, an innovator in automating system deployment and maintenance, controls and promotes reuse of standardized software infrastructure and automates system construction, maintenance, and on-demand image generation for deployment across any physical, virtual and cloud environment.

· Eucalyptus Systems, creator of the leading open source private cloud software, provides infrastructure software that enables organizations to deploy massively scalable private and hybrid cloud computing environments within a secure IT infrastructure.

· MomentumSI, a pioneer in cloud and service oriented architecture, integration, and application development, provides implementation services, best practices and the adoption model for making the transition to self-service, private and hybrid clouds.

Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions, said, “Cloud solutions won’t come in a box, nor are traditional internal IT technologies and skills apt to seamlessly spin up mission-ready cloud services. Neither are cloud providers so far able to provide custom or ‘shrink-wrapped’ offerings that conform to a specific enterprise’s situation and needs. That leaves a practical void, and therefore an opportunity, in the market.? Gardner continued, “Ecosystem-based solutions then are the first, best way that many organizations will likely actually use and deploy cloud services. The technology value triumvirate of newScale, rPath and Eucalyptus—with solution practice experience of MomentumSI—is an excellent example of the ecosystem approach most likely to become the way that cloud models actually work for enterprises for the next few years.?

Quick Guide: What is Enterprise 2.0?

Some use the term Enterprise 2.0 exclusively to describe the use of social networking technologies in the enterprise, while others use it to describe a web economy platform, or the technological framework behind such a platform. Still others say that Enterprise 2.0 is all of these things. Learn More
