SUSE Launches Cloud4, Latest Version of Cloud Computing Platform Based on OpenStack Icehouse Release

The Cloud4 platform will support multi-hypervisor cloud computing ecosystems with automated high availability (HA) capabilities.

suseGREATRESPONDER.COM – This was announced by the SuSe open source software support company on Wednesday August 13, 2014 that it is going to release the latest version of it cloud computing platform named as Cloud4. It is an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platform, which is based on the latest release of the OpenStack cloud version called as Icehouse. The company staked its claim in the domain of cloud computing services and negated the general thinking that Red Hat and Canonical are only Linux based companies that deal with OpenStack cloud platforms.

In an official statement of the company, it was further informed about the features of the newly released cloud computing based product that, it supports the feature of automated high availability (HA), which is very critical for the enterprises and large companies. The Cloud4 infrastructure as a service is capable of support multiple hypervisor at the same time, which will lead to open up a new dimension of interoperability of cloud services among diverse hypervisor providers. This new release will also support the Ceph Distributed Storage System.

The company further claimed, in the official statement that, “SUSE Cloud is the first enterprise distribution with automated high availability (HA) configuration and deployment of the OpenStack cloud services. This ensures the continuous operation of private cloud deployments and the delivery of enterprise-grade Service Level Agreements (SLA).”

In his official comments, the VP of Global Alliance and Marketing at SUSE, Mr. Michael Miller said, “With SUSE Cloud, SUSE has taken the lead in making a standardized OpenStack distribution deployable in today’s enterprise datacenters. SUSE Cloud makes it easy and cost effective to implement a highly available, mixed-hypervisor private cloud infrastructure. And the addition of Ceph distributed storage capabilities increases the value and flexibility of SUSE Cloud in almost any enterprise.” Meanwhile, the Executive Director of OpenStack platform, Mr. Jonathan Bryce commented about the adoptability of the OpenStack platform that, “The OpenStack project is seeing increasingly wide adoption by enterprises. We’ve heard from enterprise users that high availability, integration with their preferred tools and platforms, and access to the latest upstream innovation is important, and that’s exactly the market SUSE is reaching for with Ceph integration and HA tools.”

The statement of the company further maintained that, “SUSE Cloud now includes advanced VMware capabilities for image management and support for VMware Virtual SAN, in addition to previous support for VMware vSphere compute nodes, VMware NSX network virtualization and the vSphere driver for block storage, automation and availability features to ease enterprise adoption of OpenStack and help organizations maximize current IT investments.”

Silicon Cloud International Company Launched for Designing Secure Cloud Computing Semiconductors

Silicon Cloud International SCI would develop turn-key IC design flow, multi-tenant and secure cloud computing infrastructure that will help integrate the cloud technologies at the semiconductor level.

GREATRESPONDER.COM – This was announced on Jan 25, 2014 through a press release statement, that a dedicated company called ‘Silicon Cloud International’ (SCI) has been launched to work on the development and integration of cloud based infrastructure at the semiconductor levels. The company will focus on the end to end semiconductor design workflows, which will be based on the secure and multi-tenant cloud environment. The primary focus of the company would be universities and research organizations to carve this next generation cloud computing infrastructure into reliable and robust technologies before presenting to the commercial markets.

It was further elaborated in the company statement that this cloud based design infrastructure would be maintenance free with many other features, such as – production grade workflows, latest semiconductor process technologies, semiconductor intellectual property and electronic design automation or EDA software.

This technology would be very helpful for fast growth of the private and secure cloud computing infrastructure at an end to end semiconductor level. With the help of this project, the global semiconductor development and collaboration would improve due to its consistency and uniformity. It will also allow secure access to EDA tool-kits, IP cores and process libraries.

“The security has always been the main hindrance in the implementation of IC design in the cloud,” said the CEO of the company, Mr. Mojy Chian. “Using defense-grade security, SCI creates a trusted environment that enables universities and research institutions to access leading edge manufacturing technologies (PDK), state of the art design tools and the latest cloud computing technologies” he added.

The press release also hinted the establishment of a widespread and strong partnership of the company with different research institutes and universities along with other entities, such as – semiconductor ecosystem providers, EDA, foundry and IP companies.

“SCI represents the first major disruptive technology application of cloud computing in the semiconductor industry,” said Ulf Schneider, while commenting about this development in the domain of cloud computing technology at the IC level.

Due to the military grade security of the workflows, many technical experts in the IT industry anticipate this move a very positive sign to establish the confidence of all kinds of industries and organizations in the most cruising technology of the world.
