BOSTON, Sept. 24 — Real Cloud Solutions LLC, a leading supplier of cloud computing enablement for independent software vendors (ISVs), today announced an agreement with CyberMetrics Corporation, a world leader in scalable calibration management software solutions, for the Cloud deployment of their GAGEtrak software utilizing Real Cloud Solutions technology and platform.
"We've been providing Internet-based business applications for over a decade now and we've taken that experience and applied it to our new GAGEtrak Cloud system," says Dave K. Banerjea, President and CEO of CyberMetrics (http://www.cybermetrics.com).
"Our primary objectives with GAGEtrak Cloud were accessibility, usability and security. Using the nearly ubiquitous Internet, we can provide anytime-anywhere access to our domestic, international and multinational clients. As far as usability, GAGEtrak Cloud delivers a responsive, robust and rich desktop-like experience to the user with no retraining needed. Security is thoroughly addressed by utilizing a triple-protection scheme of data encryption, account access security and end-user security credentials."
The Real Cloud Solutions platform allows for a quick and effortless deployment, minimized software-licensing costs, reduction in IT hardware and data storage costs and, eliminates time and money spent on software maintenance and improving scalability. With a cloud-based system, users can gain access to all of the advantages of using the software without having to incur the cost of in-house hardware and technical infrastructure development.
"There is strong market interest in cloud services due to an increasing demand for reducing TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) for IT investment and systems across many markets," stated Rick Cluthe, President and COO of Real Cloud Solutions. "CyberMetrics Corporation recognized these considerable benefits and wanted to bring them to their customers using our cloud solution services," commented Cluthe.

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.
