CohesiveFT's Elastic Servers Available for Deployment to FlexiScale's On-Demand Cloud

CHICAGO and LIVINGSTON, Scotland – June 24, 2008 – CohesiveFT, providers of the Elastic Server Platform, an on-demand service for dynamic assembly and deployment of virtual machines, and FlexiScale, a leading provider of true on-demand Cloud computing, today announced a technology partnership to enable deployment of CohesiveFT’s Elastic Servers to FlexiScale's Cloud.

The integration of technologies from CohesiveFT and FlexiScale will enable true on-demand application stack assembly and deployment on a pay-as-you-go Cloud. This combination allows genuinely scaleable, high availability production environments that do not require in-house operations expertise to build and maintain such a facility. Beyond substantial manpower savings the combined solution significantly reduces capital and energy expenditures.

This partnership will also allow ISVs, application developers and QA teams to dramatically increase their productivity throughout the development lifecycle. These teams will not be dependent on resource constrained operations departments to provision development and testing environments and will be able to change their application stack definitions with the click of a mouse. Further, these development environments need only be retained while they are actively in use, and can be recreated with speed and quality whenever they are required.

Initially Elastic Server-branded virtual machines will be available from FlexiScale's Control Panel as templates built in a Xen virtual format for deployment into Virtual Dedicated Servers (VDS) in FlexiScale's Cloud. The Elastic Server templates will feature application stacks as pre-built virtual machine images of popular components. Users will have access to these custom images on demand, eliminating the typical administrative overhead of assembling virtual machine images “by hand”.

“The combination of FlexiScale and CohesiveFT provides customers with a self-service, rapid-response environment for deploying any kind of application” said Tony Lucas, CEO of FlexiScale. “Anchored by FlexiScale’s on-demand computing Cloud and CohesiveFT's dynamic virtual server assembly capabilities, this new approach takes all the upfront financial capital, human capital and lead time opportunity costs out,” he added.

“Cloud computing is revolutionizing the application development lifecycle,” said Pat Kerpan, president and chief technology officer of CohesiveFT. “Our partnership with FlexiScale will provide companies the ability to build and deploy a custom virtual server to a cloud in minutes which brings massive efficiencies to the adopters of this approach,” he added.

FlexiScale's and CohesiveFT’s collaboration will enable full dynamic connectivity between the Elastic Server platform and FlexiScale's Cloud in the very near future. This will provide users with the added benefit of building exactly what they need in their application stacks and the ability to provision and start-up the server in minutes using their FlexiScale credentials from within the Elastic Server platform.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
