DENVER, June 28 — FORTRUST, the Rocky Mountain Region's premium data center and colocation services provider, today announced that Ajubeo, a national provider of enterprise-class cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), has chosen its Denver, Colorado data center for their high-density cloud computing colocation deployment. The decision was based on FORTRUST's 100% uptime track record as well as its ability to accommodate Ajubeo's need for 17 kW per cabinet/rack. FORTRUST owns and operates the 224,000 square-foot data center that is an SSAE 16 SOC 1 and 2 Type 2 compliant facility in Denver, Colorado.
Cloud infrastructure companies such as Ajubeo are ideal customers for FORTRUST due to their high-growth potential, interconnection ecosystem development and on-site co-marketing synergies such as data center consolidation endeavors that include hybrid colocation to cloud deployments. Analysts have projected the cloud computing market to grow at a 56% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next five years.
Ajubeo's sales performance since its launch announcement on May 23, 2012, validates these projections.

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.
