Built on company's leading enterprise-class cloud architecture, private cloud solution meets customer requirements for dedicated cloud resources
MIAMI, April 3 — Terremark, a Verizon Company, is launching the latest addition to its extensive portfolio of secure cloud offerings – Enterprise Cloud Private Edition. This private cloud solution is built on the leading enterprise-class architecture of Terremark's flagship cloud computing offering, the Enterprise Cloud, but is designed as a single-tenant environment to meet the security compliance requirements of many large enterprises and government agencies.
Enterprise Cloud Private Edition is an extension of the company's hybrid cloud strategy, offering customers the capability of migrating application workloads between traditional and cloud environments – including their own dedicated infrastructure, Terremark's cloud platforms, and cloud resources offered by other providers – in a seamless and secure way. Enterprises and government agencies running application workloads in this private cloud are able to connect easily into the company's award-winning public cloud platform for bursting during peak usage periods and as part of a cloud migration strategy. Additionally, the Private Edition solution adheres to Terremark's commitment to an open cloud strategy by offering customers the freedom to utilize multiple operating systems and private network integration through Terremark's carrier-neutral data centers.
"Our Private Edition solution is designed to meet the strong customer demand we've seen for the agility, cost efficiencies and flexibility of cloud computing, delivered in a single-tenant, dedicated environment," said Ellen Rubin, Terremark's vice president of Cloud Products. "Since the initial launch of the Enterprise Cloud four years ago, Terremark has been a recognized leader in delivering the innovative, enterprise-class cloud computing solutions and complementary secure IT infrastructure services that large companies and government agencies are leveraging as they migrate from traditional IT infrastructure to a hybrid model."
Terremark's portfolio of cloud computing solutions sets the standard for enterprise-class cloud computing – with the service-level agreements, security models, professional services, and world-class data centers that allow organizations to run their critical production applications in the cloud with confidence. With the addition of Terremark's CloudSwitch software, customers are able to bridge their existing IT infrastructure with Terremark's cloud computing services to create a compelling hybrid model for enterprise IT. This unique capability allows customers to connect seamlessly to Terremark's public and private cloud services for workload portability. The CloudSwitch software also supports multiple clouds allowing customers to migrate application workloads to other cloud providers or back to their data centers without modifying their applications.
The Enterprise Cloud Private Edition solution is available now, and is delivered from Terremark cloud-enabled data centers across its global footprint of strategically located facilities. Additionally, a customized private cloud offering designed by the company's proven team of cloud experts and based on the same highly secure architecture as the Enterprise Cloud Private Edition offering is available for deployment in customer facilities and other non-Terremark locations.
Terremark, a Verizon Company, is a leader in transforming and securing enterprise-class IT on a global scale. A subsidiary of Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq:VZ), Terremark sets the standard for IT deployments with advanced infrastructure and managed service offerings that deliver the scale, security, and reliability necessary to meet the demanding requirements of enterprises and governments around the world.

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.
