Methud Launches Bitcoin Cloud Mining Powered By OpenStack

Irving, TX (PRWEB) April 24, 2014

Methud (Method, Inc.) has finally finished their OpenStack-based bitcoin mining cloud, set to launch fully on May 1st 2014. Methud is currently taking pre-orders on mining contracts, powered by their ultra-secure cloud, featuring military-grade encryption and other major security upgrades. The Bitcoin industry has had its fair share of security issues over the past year, including the massive failure of MtGoxs exchange service, once thought to be one of the most secure wallet services online.

Methud has set out to create the ultimate cloud mining service, based on high-end security and performance. Its not a secret that Bitcoin has some major security flaws when incorporated with unexperienced service providers. Having provided military and medical IT services for over a decade, we have figured out a solution to solve these issues by using the private networking suites that OpenStack boasts, says Methud founder and CEO Joe Torres. Working with some of the most knowledgeable miners and cloud engineers has helped us a great deal when it comes to protecting our users information and earnings, he added.

In July 2010 Rackspace Hosting and NASA jointly launched an open-source cloud-software initiative known as OpenStack. The OpenStack project intended to help organizations offer cloud-computing services running on standard hardware. The community’s first official release, code-named Austin, appeared four months later, with plans to release regular updates of the software every few months. The early code came from NASA’s Nebula platform as well as from Rackspace’s Cloud Files platform. Methud has contracts available in 3, 6, 9 and 12 month increments and unlike most cloud mining providers, has its own secure private pool available to users who would like to experience their powerful security platform. Miners also have the option to mine in their own external pools as well. Methuds infrastructure is hosted in Equinixs Phoenix teir-1 facilities, for an extra boost of security.

One thing that I think sets us apart from most mining providers is our ability to build our own hardware, instead of relying on outside hardware suppliers to fulfill our customers requests. This will keep us on a steady climb instead of having to take a pause in the middle of a major mining rush, says Methuds VP John Capillari. While the value of bitcoin has plummeted over the past few months due to some major industry changes and crashes, Methuds leadership believes there will be a major rise in the near future that will lead to a mining rush.

Time will tell what Bitcoin will bring to the world economy but it is safe to say that many online retailers have decided to stick with the currency, even during tough times. The worlds interest in getting their hands on this new currency is still a hot topic and cloud mining providers like CloudHashing and Methud are planning on bringing this opportunity to the masses.

Methud plans on launching in a few other Equinix facilities in the near future if things go as planned and expanding their cloud by the Fall of 2014. Other mining and exchange services are looking at possible security upgrades as well, heading into what could be a major bitcoin rush once again. You can bet they will be checking out each others advancements over the next few months to buff up security for customers.

Hosting Provider ViUX Systems Improves Retention of High-Value Customers by Creating a Natural Upgrade Path Powered by Parallels Software


Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

Parallels Partner, ViUX Systems is the subject of a new case study published by Parallels with the title “Hosting provider ViUX Systems improves retention of high-value customers by creating a natural upgrade path powered by Parallels software”.

The case study speaks about the history and growth of ViUX Systems and its use of Parallels software to solve business problems faced along the way… most specifically, Parallels Virtuozzo Containers & Parallels Cloud Server – the latter of which ViUX has recently deployed as the foundation of its Cloud Servers and new Virtual Datacenter.

The case study details how ViUX has progressed from Shared Hosting, to Dynamic Dedicated Servers, to now using Parallels Cloud Server as the foundation upon which all ViUX services will be provisioned going forward… and how this marks a critical step in the evolution of the ViUX Cloud, as it now includes revolutionary Parallels Cloud Storage technology which significantly improve the availability and performance of ViUX Cloud Servers provisioned upon new state-of-the-Internet Dell PowerEdge C- Series Servers.

———-

Parallels Cloud Server allows ViUX to provision Cloud Servers as both Containers and Hypervisors on the same physical servers. This flexibility lets ViUX take advantage of the scalability and streamlined management of Operating System Virtualization (Containers); while also making use of Hardware Virtualization (Hypervisors) to create Virtual Machines (VMs) – all deployed on top of Parallels Cloud Storage.

Parallels Cloud Storage combines and pools the disk space on ViUX servers into a single large storage cluster to deliver Cloud Storage at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. When used to deploy Cloud Servers, Parallels Cloud Storage eliminates the physical server as a potential single point of failure, for high-availability Cloud Hosting.

ViUX Systems was one of the first Hosting Providers to announce deployment of Parallels Cloud Server (PCS) back in February as a beta offering just prior to the Parallels Summit 2013 in Las Vegas. The live production deployment of PCS by ViUX uses new Dell PE C6220 Servers. The complete configuration and deployment details are published in the ViUX Blog: ViUX Deploys 54TB Cloud Storage Cluster Using Parallels Cloud Server 6.0 on Dell PowerEdge Cloud (6220) Servers.

Parallels Cloud Server includes: Parallels Containers, the highest density, highest performance Cloud Server Virtualization solution (formerly Parallels Virtuozzo Containers) – enabling near instant provisioning with no operating system updates required by the customer; and Parallels Hypervisor (formerly Parallels Server Bare Metal) – giving ViUX the flexibility to create Virtual Machines for customers who prefer to manage and maintain their own operating systems; all controlled by Parallels Business Automation, which is the hosting automation and billing system from Parallels that ViUX has used since 2006.

Using Parallels Cloud Server and other software systems from Parallels, ViUX has deployed a super-efficient and highly automated Cloud Hosting Infrastructure from which a wide range of Web Hosting and Managed Cloud Services are offered, such as: Shared Cloud Hosting; Private Cloud Servers; Dynamic Dedicated Servers, etc… that appeal to the broadest possible customer base.

The new case study published by Parallels about ViUX Systems gives the history of this evolution and how Parallels software has allowed ViUX to overcome certain business problems along the way – resulting in the latest offering from ViUX… the Virtual Datacenter.

Denovo Ventures, LLC Launches ‘JDE as a Service,’ Powered by Amazon Web Services


Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 23, 2012

Collaborate 12 Quest Forum April 23, 2012 – Denovo Ventures, LLC (dba Denovo) an Oracle Platinum Partner, today announced it is delivering JD Edwards (JDE) as a Service on Amazon Web Services (AWS) . JDE as a Service is as a set of solution offerings, pre-configured by Denovo for Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (E1). This cost effective suite provides customers with greater agility, to dynamically grow and expand their businesses.

Denovo has demonstrated success with traditional JDE hosting and managed services for companies like Crocs, Inc. and Sunrise Medical. Seeking to expand capacity and capabilities, Denovo and Oracle determined it was time to provide a public cloud offering and approached AWS, the leading cloud service provider, to be their cloud resource for the JDE as a Service subscription-based model.

Denovo will offer full transparency into its solution offerings, a voice in decisions beyond the scope of traditional outsourcing contracts, and an opportunity for sharing in further cost reductions as Denovo continues to implement its cloud computing strategy.

Mark Goedde, President of Denovo said; We want to provide customers with a broad choice in service offerings. According to the 2012 Oracle Application User Group Survey, 51% of organizations are showing rapidly increasing cloud adoption. Upgrades, new implementations, cost savings, increased flexibility, and scalability were shown to be the top business benefits for moving to a cloud-based environment. Denovo, teaming with AWS and Oracle, has positioned itself to deliver cloud solutions, while providing impeccable customer service. JDE as a Service provides yet another choice for our customers that will help them maintain their competitive edge and improve their bottom line.
