Appnomic Systems Announces Its Leadership in Open Data Center Alliance Enterprise Cloud Service Quality Proof of Concept

ODCA Members Appnomic Systems and Intel Validate ODCA Usage Models Intel Includes Appnomic in New Intel(R) Cloud Finder Search Tool

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- Appnomic Systems, a leading provider of innovative analytics software for IT application operations (ITOA), today announced its leadership role in the Open Data Center Alliance's Proof of Concept (PoC): Enterprise Cloud Service Quality with ODCA member, Intel Corporation®, as well as other ODCA Steering Group member companies. ODCA, the global organization where members work together to advance the deployment of enterprise cloud solutions and services that are interoperable, secure and free of vendor lock-in, also today, released its white paper highlighting the results of the PoC.

ODCA's latest proof of concept provides a method for evaluating different Compute Infrastructure as a Service (CIaaS) providers including internal enterprise operations. The framework shows how enterprises can compare multiple CIaaS providers to evaluate quality of service, deliver better end-user experiences, enhance overall cloud operations and increase their return on investment. The platforms included in this study are public cloud services from Amazon Web Services and Rackspace, along with a private cloud platform within one of the ODCA Steering Group company's technical operations. A partial list of the ODCA Steering Group Level Companies is provided below. This PoC also proposes the adoption of an industry-wide "Cloud Facts" label, similar in concept to the nutrition facts label in the food industry.

"Enterprise buyers and users of cloud services in today's cloud-computing marketplace can have a difficult time evaluating and comparing performance across service providers," said Ray Solnik, president of Appnomic Systems, Inc. "A lack of standard units of measurement and a common framework for assessing vendor services makes it more difficult to gauge the reliability of cloud services. While CIaaS companies currently provide a great deal of information, the manner in which the information is presented and the lack measurement standards vary is inhibiting market growth. The findings of this POC provide ways for enterprises and service providers to improve the state of the industry in ways that can accelerate cloud services growth."

"We're very excited about this PoC contributing to the valuable body of ODCA work," said Cathy Spence, Chair of the ODCA Technical Coordination Committee and principal engineer at Intel. "Adding to the body of knowledge that the ODCA has created so far, this PoC will save enterprises time, money and resources, allowing IT departments to make informed decisions about how to architect and deploy data center services."

Intel Cloud Finder
In addition to announcing the public availability of the ODCA Enterprise Cloud Service Quality PoC results, Appnomic is announcing its participation in the new Intel Cloud Finder Search Tool.

In an effort to better support enterprise IT in their search for cloud services providers, ODCA has launched a collaboration with Intel through the Intel Cloud Finder Program, an online reference site featuring information about cloud service providers (CSPs). With this collaboration, Intel Cloud Finder now integrates ODCA usage models into a custom search that assists users with the selection of CSPs. Appnomic is one of the CSPs included in this new online search tool that is simple to use and enables a more efficient use of time and resources for enterprises purchasing cloud services.

We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
