MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- CloudPhysics, who provides predictive analytics for virtual datacenter management, today announced that it has been selected as one of 10 finalists for the 11th Annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium Innovation Showcase for developing a cutting edge solution that provides both strong value and innovation to enterprise IT: http://www.mitcio.com/innovation.
The agenda for the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium is available at: http://www.mitcio.com/agenda. The Innovation Showcase will take place at 5:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at MIT in Cambridge, MA.
"We are thrilled to have received such a high number of qualified Innovation Showcase submissions," said David L. Verrill, Executive Director of the MIT Center for Digital Business, and Co-Chair of the Innovation Showcase. "Each of the 10 finalists we have chosen represents innovative technologies that have the potential to positively impact growth, and help CIOs move their digital enterprises forward successfully."
CloudPhysics was founded in 2011 with the mission to continuously deliver insights to IT teams for actively managing the dynamics of their virtualized infrastructures. The company's SaaS offering collects machine metadata of virtualized datacenters and, with the power of big data analytics, uncovers hidden operational hazards before problems emerge as well as identifies radical efficiency improvements in storage, compute and networking with VMware workloads, giving IT more power than ever before to understand, troubleshoot and optimize their virtualized datacenters.
This is the latest in a series of accolades for CloudPhysics. CloudPhysics has been named a Top 10 Big Data Startup to Watch by Network World, a Top 12 Cloud Company to Watch by Network World, a Top 10 Virtualization Company to Watch in 2014 by TechTarget SearchServerVirtualization, one of the 21 hottest startups by Business Insider, one of the 10 startups in the VMware Universe worth tracking at VMworld 2013 and one of the most notable vendors by Enterprise Management Associates. The company won the VMworld 2013 Best of Breed Cloud Management Award presented by Virtualization Review magazine and was named a finalist in TechTarget SearchServerVirtualization's Best of VMworld Awards in the Virtualization Management category. The company received the Best Innovation Award at VMworld 2012, where it debuted its technology.
"Big data is used extensively to drive analytics for many consumer-facing industries; ironically, IT has yet to exploit this power to manage datacenter operations," said John Blumenthal, CloudPhysics CEO and Co-Founder. "It's exciting to be recognized for our innovative use of the cloud and big data to answer questions about how our users' virtualized infrastructure is -- and should be -- running. We are honored to be a finalist for MIT Sloan CIO Symposium's Innovation Showcase."

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
