CHICAGO, IL, Sept. 11 — Cyber Innovation Labs, LLC (CIL), a premier enterprise-class managed Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider, and NEC Corporation of America (NEC), unveil a paradigm shift for cloud computing at the Cloud Connect Conference and Expo in Chicago September 10-13. This announcement comes after nine months of rigorous infrastructure testing and multiple successful full-scale global deployments of the Cloud in a Vault solution, the first holistic Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution for major enterprises.
Cloud in a Vault is a proven, comprehensive Cloud data management and networking solution that is already successfully deployed across major enterprise networks. It is a next-generation, on-demand infrastructure solution that transforms the modern-day data center into a 100% dedicated, ultra-secure and compliant Cloud as a Service platform. The solution allows companies to deploy an OpEx model-based infrastructure that is completely self-contained and scalable, offering the first retractable "cloud on wheels" service guarantee.
This breakthrough in cloud computing leverages Cyber Innovation Lab's own 2N Tier 3+ SSAE 16 certified data center facilities, NEC's proven Software Defined Networking (SDN) product family, the award-winning ProgrammableFlow networking and Nblock infrastructure, plus Halock Security Labs' innovative security solutions. NEC's ProgrammableFlow network suite was the first commercially available SDN solution to leverage the OpenFlow protocol enabling complete network virtualization, allowing customers to easily deploy, control, monitor, and manage a multi-tenant network infrastructure. Nblock is a comprehensive, full-suite IT and networking platform solution that provides integrated infrastructure.
"Cloud in a Vault delivers the first completely supported and transportable solution all-inclusive of the data center infrastructure to the hardware, software and applications that run through it," adds Mike Mitsch, VP Enterprise Technology Unit / IT Group for NEC Corporation of America. "NEC's proven and flexible Nblock technology stack incorporates industry standard, OpenFlow-based SDN technology, coupled with Cyber Innovation Lab's ultra-reliable data center facilities and Halock's security solutions. As a result, Cloud in a Vault meets the demands of the most discerning companies in the financial, healthcare, legal, government and educational verticals – and beyond."
"There hasn't been one solution that can meet the holistic needs of today's enterprise marketplace through one provider – until today," comments Jack Pressman, Managing Director of Cyber Innovation Labs, LLC. "Cloud in a Vault is a proven solution that has already been successfully deployed across several organizations within the financial, healthcare and legal verticals. Its capabilities are highly flexible and attractive to any enterprise that values security, scalability, reliability and control."

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.
