Carpathia Hosting Provides New Managed Enterprise Cloud Solutions for Enterprises and Government Agencies


Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) June 2, 2009

Carpathia Hosting, the leading provider of enterprise managed hosting services for government agencies and businesses, announced today it has been selected by organizations such as Echo360, Nuvolus, Ventraq, Voices Heard Media and a leading federal systems integrator to provide customized managed cloud solutions using its Carpathia AlwaysOn/InstantOn hybrid model.

AlwaysOn/InstantOn is the first managed cloud solution designed for enterprises, differentiating Carpathia Hosting from industry competitors. Components of the AlwaysOn/InstantOn model are highly flexible and can be used to design custom solutions to meet the specific needs of individual organizations. Already, multiple enterprises and government agencies have deployed the solution within their enterprises.

Echo360

Echo360 sought a managed solution that would allow its higher education customers to have a reliable and stable hosting environment for on-demand access to university lectures. The customized solution designed by Carpathia Hosting utilizes Carpathia AlwaysOn capacity for the predictable portion of Echo360’s workload, and then will provide Carpathia InstantOn to allow bursting into the Carpathia Hosting storage and compute cloud in the future when usage peaks.

“Carpathia Hosting evaluated the entire problem we were trying to solve. The one-to-one design support provided by Carpathia Hosting resulted in a solution with the reliability of dedicated resources, and in the future, the cost savings associated with the benefits of a ‘burstable’ cloud computing model,” said Mark Jones, President of Echo360.

Nuvolus

Delivering virtual desktop solutions to the healthcare industry presents many challenges. Not only does Nuvolus have to ensure compliance with regulatory standards such as HIPAA, it also must achieve a cost model that drives down the IT cost for healthcare providers. Nuvolus selected the Carpathia AlwaysOn/InstantOn solution to meet these challenges. By using dedicated and cloud services tied together with Carpathia Cloud Orchestration, Nuvolus has been able to create a compelling solution for its clients.

“We originally looked at deploying in a public cloud computing provider’s infrastructure, but quickly came to the conclusion that this was sub-optimal in terms of price and the support we require to deliver the mission-critical services our customers demand. With Carpathia Hosting, we have engineered a horizontally-scaled infrastructure solution, taking advantage of cloud-bursting to dynamically add more resources as we need them. By leveraging the blended solution, we can also take advantage of additional services such as managed backup, data recovery and storage,” said Kevin Ellis, CEO of Nuvolus.

Ventraq

Ventraq required a solution that could scale to meet the demands of high volumes of data processing over a low latency network. By using the AlwaysOn/InstantOn platform, Carpathia Hosting was able to develop a solution that met this key requirement in a matter of days.

“Our customers have strict requirements for security and availability of our mission critical application. By blending dedicated infrastructure with Carpathia Hosting’s cloud services, we were able to take advantage of its ‘Cloud Orchestration’ technology to allow our dedicated machines to leverage cloud storage and for our web traffic to be distributed across dedicated and cloud servers,” commented John Louglin, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Mediation for Ventraq.

Voices Heard Media

Using Apache JMeter, Carpathia Hosting delivered an elastic testing cloud for Voices Heard Media, allowing load testing of thousands of simultaneous users against Voices Heard Media’s environment. In order to deliver this capability, the solution dynamically allocated cloud compute resources to scale to the required testing requirements. The process was controlled from a single JMeter console also running in Carpathia Hosting’s cloud infrastructure.

Grid Dynamics and Gogrid Help Enterprises Adopt the Cloud with Cloud4QA


Fremont and San Francisco, CA (Vocus) July 28, 2009 –

Grid Dynamics, a leading expert in scalability of mission-critical systems, has announced the launch of Cloud4QA services offering, in collaboration with its cloud infrastructure partner, GoGrid. Cloud4QA includes Grid Dynamics proprietary methodology and a set of tools designed to help enterprise customers quickly adopt public cloud computing infrastructure for application testing and development.

Application testing is a recurring activity on every software development project. Test hardware is expensive to buy, configure and maintain, so most development projects use less hardware and test less frequently. Even when companies invest in testing labs, the precious resources end up being either over- or under-subscribed most of the time. In addition, frequent set-up and re-configuration of these environments between the test runs become significant cost factors and process bottlenecks. The result is a backlog accumulation of testing jobs with increased time-to-market, as well as sub-optimal software quality, hindered by the lack of adequate test hardware.

Offering benefits such as on-demand resource provisioning, reduction in cost of ownership and location independence, public clouds are the perfect solution for these common problems.

The Cloud4AQ solution offering gives the developers the ultimate luxury practically unlimited hardware resources dedicated to them, available in any configuration for any period of time, at a price point that even the most budget-constrained organizations can afford. This is a game-changer for the software development industry said Victoria Livschitz, CEO and Founder of Grid Dynamics.

The company has also announced that its cloud infrastructure partner, GoGrid, will complement the Cloud4QA solution with its hosted cloud offering.

“Customers who are looking to move their test and development environment into the cloud will greatly benefit from Grid Dynamics’ expertise combined with GoGrid’s market-leading cloud offerings and hosting infrastructure said John Keagy, CEO and Co-Founder of GoGrid.

Industry leaders recently announced how small and medium enterprises (SMEs) can speed up business growth by adopting cloud computing


UK – (PRWEB UK) 17 April 2013

London: Change is a given in business. The industrial revolution was world-changing, but business has now moved into a new revolution where innovation and adding value wins. Small and medium sized businesses are flexible, providing an advantage over large businesses to be at the forefront of emerging technologies and ways of doing business.

If organisations dont change, they stagnate at best, Karen Callaghan, people director at Innocent Drinks.

Forrester forecasts that the global market for cloud computing will grow from $ 40.7 billion in 2011 to more than $ 241 billion in 2020.

Australias largest accounting software provider, MYOB recently conducted a study of over 1,000 SMEs which demonstrates that small to medium-sized business operators who embrace cloud computing and business websites were twice as likely to enjoy rising revenue than others in the past 12 months.

While cost may be perceived as the primary reason for SMEs to outsource its IT, many mid-market organizations continue to view cloud computing as a way to transform processes and gain access to best-practice knowledge. Cloud computing has proven its capabilities in providing added value to SMEs, these can be categorised into four distinct areas:

(The below information was sourced from e-Skills for Cloud Computing, Cyber-security and Green IT: A call for action!)

Business revenue and growth

Cloud services allow the business to focus on business because the enterprise can now reduce the need to provide low-business value via high-cost labour to support commodity IT services. Medium-sized businesses can also reduce the amount of money spent on non-differentiated services and can allocate resources to value creating activities. Finally, cloud solutions provide a platform for collaboration that eventually accelerates time to value and reduce time to start up and complete projects.

Agility and flexibility

Cloud services provide greater flexibility on architecture and sourcing options and can be scaled up and down as needed, which then maximises efficiency and adds additional capacity when needed. The introduction of cloud solutions that integrate suppliers and customers in core business processes in real time also means that the boundaries between the companies and the vendors and customers are blurring. The social enterprise is therefore another perspective related to the agile and flexible company using cloud solutions.

Cost reduction

Cost reduction is specifically related to reduced energy consumption and a more general shift from capital expenditure to operational expenditure. Cost reduction can also have a perspective related to employment because cloud provides the option of simplifying IT management.

Innovation

Business value is also related to innovation. Cloud computing means that SMEs avoid the need to handle time-consuming upgrades in-house, as users outsource the operation and maintenance of software and as upgrades take place automatically, the need for redesign of datacentres or IT upgrades is decreasing. Therefore, ICT practitioners can potentially focus on deploying applications or delivering new projects that drive business benefits and innovation. Employees and managers can now conduct all types of business from wherever they choose, and this leads to a stronger emphasis on a service delivery approach to IT. Consequently, cloud solutions must be flexible and rely on service delivery. This way of creating business value means that ICT departments need to focus on the core business and not just the supporting processes. It also means that ICT practitioners will have a direct impact on business through orchestrating, aggregating and delivering services when and where they are needed.
