LAUSANNE, Switzerland, December 9, 2010 -- Kaseya, the leading global provider of automated IT systems management software, today announced that the U.S. Patent Office has issued it a patent covering technology that delivers dynamic instruction sets to remote devices from a centralized server.
Patent 7,827,547 discloses the use of a new dynamically loaded instruction set or library from a central server to update a remote computer management capability that was not previously enabled to be performed.
“The key to any successful IT service delivery depends on automating repetitive tasks on each managed system. Automation not only saves man-hours but more importantly, increases reliability and quality of the service. IT administrators need to customize tasks rapidly through a simple to use scripting mechanism that scales to all the systems under management. Our unique approach meets all these needs,” said Mark Sutherland, president of Kaseya.
Using Kaseya® agent procedures technology, IT professionals can define and build computer instructions that perform a multitude of operations to help them maintain and manage IT infrastructure remotely. Historically an IT professional would have to be physically present at the device site to be able to maintain the systems, uncover performance issues and troubleshoot technical difficulties.
“We understand that sustaining optimal performance on the network is critical for our customers,” said Sutherland. “Through our patented technology, we can ensure not only that work is successfully completed, but also that there is minimal impact on system resources and user activity.”
Kaseya serves a global customer base of more than 10,500 on-premise and cloud customers with millions of agents deployed, including Windows PCs, Linux servers and Mac notebooks.
Kaseya is the leading global provider of IT Systems Management software. Kaseya solutions empower everyone –– from individual consumers to large corporations and IT service providers –– to proactively manage and control IT assets remotely, easily and efficiently from one integrated Web-based platform. Kaseya solutions are trusted by IT service providers and a wide variety of industries including: banking, consumer packaged goods, education, financial services, government, healthcare, military, real estate, retail and transportation. The company is privately held and based in Lausanne, Switzerland with 33 offices in 20 countries. To learn more, please visit http://www.kaseya.com.
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.
