MARLBOROUGH, Mass., November 22, 2010 -- Egenera Inc. announced it has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 7,787,388 for clustering and fail-over technology used to ensure its highly-available converged infrastructure services. Egenera's patent is for a uniquely architected, redundant controller fabric configuration that ensures business critical levels of availability for its PAN Manager Software controllers. No other converged infrastructure or unified computing system today can boast this form of availability.
While use of converged infrastructure is the best way to physically simplify datacenter topology, it is also one of the most well-designed ways to provide availability and disaster recovery (DR) services. Egenera's software is currently in use worldwide to provide high-availability and disaster recovery for both physical and virtual servers at commercial and government locations.
Converge. Unify. Simplify. That's how Egenera converged infrastructure and unified computing solutions have been transforming datacenters and service providers worldwide for over 10 years. The company's production-proven PAN Manager Software leverages powerful I/O virtualization and converged network fabric to deliver quantifiable value such as high availability, disaster recovery, operational agility, and cloud computing infrastructures. Egenera software and services guarantee simple wire-once, always-on, physical / virtual infrastructure automation on standard volume platforms with significant savings every time. Headquartered in Marlborough, Mass., Egenera has offices globally. For more information visit http://www.egenera.com
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
