Lixto gets into the Clouds



New version of Lixto’s Online Market Intelligence solution utilises Internet Cloud Computing to support data collection and processing

Lixto Software (www.lixto.com), the Web Intelligence company, today announced the release of Version 5 of its Web Data Extraction Software Suite comprising the Lixto Visual Developer and the Lixto Transformation Server. This latest version of the Lixto Online Market Intelligence (OMI) solution utilises the power of Internet Cloud Computing to improve the scalability and processing power of the company’s SaaS and on-premise web intelligence solution that will allow Lixto’s customers to extract even more data from the Internet for analysis in real-time.

To achieve this virtual infinite scaling of its solution, Lixto has introduced a new software architecture into the latest Version 5 solution for its server-side products that supports a grid-based scaling (or Cloud Computing) approach. This allows for linear scaling in relation to the number of processing units available in a cluster of servers. The software supports the use of Cloud Computing resources such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). The new server architecture also introduces intelligent load-distribution amongst the available processing units resulting in more efficient resource utilization and reduced management overhead.

According to Robert Bamgartner, VP of Research and Development at Lixto, “The new server architecture on Version 5 is a major technical breakthrough that will enable our customers to gather more Web data in a shorter amount of time, whilst reducing the overall resource consumption in a typical application. Our vertical solutions will benefit from the new technology in terms of scalability and performance in a transparent way and due to its reverse compatibility with previous versions of the product, upgrading to the latest version is straightforward.”

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…
