NEWPORT BEACH, CA, Nov. 8 – CloudBerry Lab, a leading cloud storage tools maker, today released CloudBerry Backup version 3.0.2, an application that allows users to online backup data to their cloud storage accounts such as Amazon S3, Windows Azure, Google Storage, Rackspace and OpenStack.
In the new release CloudBerry Backup becomes fully compatible with Amazon Glacier, the recently introduced extremely low-cost storage. Optimized for data backup and archiving it becomes a supplement to Amazon S3 storage costing as little as $0.01 per gigabyte per month. Amazon claimed Glacier to be as reliable as its original S3 solution but with longer data retrieval time.
From this release CloudBerry Backup users can leverage scheduling capabilities to automate data backup to Glacier or backup files in real time as soon as they are changed. Varieties of encryption algorithms help users protect their sensitive data, while compression allows reducing total storage cost. All operation executes on the user machine before data is sent to Amazon Glacier. Such users get full control over their backup process while keeping data remotely.

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.
