TIBCO Software Inc. announced the general
availability of PortalBuilder 5, which provides global customers with
new feature-rich enhancements and a natural, cost-effective approach to
deploy portal solutions that harness the power of a Service-Oriented
Now more than ever, portals are being seen as the linchpin or face
of SOA, helping customers become more nimble and responsive through the
timely personalized delivery of relevant information assets.
PortalBuilder 5 provides enterprise organizations with a unified
presentation layer for SOA. It consumes services and easily integrates
non-SOA applications and content to enable composite applications that
efficiently deliver targeted, user-centric views to the right people at
the right time.
"The availability of TIBCO PortalBuilder 5 strengthens our
comprehensive service-oriented strategy by simplifying the face of
SOA," said Ram Menon, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at
TIBCO. "Our continued focus on usability and strong support for
industry standards has resulted in the delivery of a cost-effective
portal platform that allows companies to quickly react to changing
market dynamics with targeted composite applications."
TIBCO PortalBuilder 5 provides customers with a flexible,
configuration-driven interface that minimizes the need for custom
coding to help reduce the time and cost to deploy portals. The
intuitive interface of TIBCO PortalBuilder 5 also reduces information
technology bottlenecks by facilitating delegated administration to
allow business users to play a more active role in the development,
deployment and management of portals. In addition, PortalBuilder's
enriched capabilities allow customers to more rapidly and
cost-effectively derive benefits from their SOA by simplifying the
process of consuming, assembling and then delivering services to users
throughout the extended enterprise.
TIBCO's latest portal offering is based on several key standards
including the Java Specification Request 168 -- a Java API for portlet
interoperability -- and Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP). This
enables the seamless integration of a wide range of content and
applications, as well as the consumption and syndication of portlets
with other WSRP-compliant portal solutions. Additionally, TIBCO
PortalBuilder 5 supports a variety of infrastructure components, such
as servlet engines, database servers and other infrastructure
technologies for deployment within heterogeneous environments.
Furthermore, TIBCO PortalBuilder 5 interacts seamlessly with TIBCO's
comprehensive integration and business process management solutions, as
well as TIBCO General Interface (GI) to allow customers to fully
leverage these solutions' capabilities inside the portal environment.
The combination of TIBCO PortalBuilder and TIBCO GI -- an
AJAX-based solution for developing rich Internet applications --
provides customers with the industry's most advanced rich portal.
Together, these technologies enable a highly interactive and responsive
user experience, allowing customers to develop and deploy rich
composite applications within their portals.
Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
