Technology gives enterprises effective way to release software to production
FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 27 — Grid Dynamics, the authority on cloud computing and enterprise systems scalability, announced today a new solution, DevOps Catalyst, an integrated product and services offering designed to address the need of modern enterprises to release code to production in a fast, repeatable and reliable manner.
DevOps Catalyst is a combination of Grid Dynamics services and tools that help enterprises establish the following practices:
"We are excited to offer DevOps Catalyst family of tools and services," said Klimoff. "Each practice is designed to help enterprises become more agile. We have been refining these capabilities for many years and on numerous client engagements. With DevOps becoming more and more prevalent throughout the IT industry, DevOps Catalyst will give CIO's and senior IT executives the right tools to aid the process of change. We are fortunate to have been able to announce our new offering at the Gartner Symposium/ITexpo and discuss it with the industry's key executives."
This is Grid Dynamics' first time attending the annual Gartner event. Gartner, Inc. is an international leader in IT research headquartered in Stamford, Conn. In April, Gartner included Grid Dynamics in its 2011 annual list of "Cool Vendors" for "Infrastructure Services".*

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.
