DataPipe Inc Acquires UK-Based Adapt Cloud Firm

This acquisition aims at the extending of high quality cloud computing services with world class customer support of DataPipe to the European clients.

DataPipe Cloud FirmGreatResponder.com  It was announced by DataPipe Inc through an official press release that it was going to acquire the UK based cloud computing firm Adapt. This announcement was made on Thursday through two press releases – one issued by Adapt cloud firm and the other issued by the DataPipe Inc. The DataPipe Inc is a cloud computing service provider company. The Adapt firm is also an Amazon AWS partner in the UK market.

This acquisition took place after the Brexit poles in June 2016. Many people were so skeptical about the cloud computing business in the UK after its separation from the European Union.  In the press release statement, the financial terms and conditions for this acquisition were not disclosed.

While terming the acquisition of Adapt as a ‘Non-disruptive additions’, the CEO of DataPipe Inc, Mr. Robb Allen in his official statement said, “Adapt and Datapipe both have cultures that focus on proactive, high touch customer service and a commitment to customer-specific solutions designed to meet clients’ individual business challenges. Our similar approach to guiding clients on their cloud journey makes the acquisition a natural fit for us and will increase our scale and service capabilities in the United Kingdom, and the broader European market.”

While talking about the merger of the Adapt Firm in the DataPipe, the CEO of the Adapt, Mr. Steward Smythe in his official statement said, “We are seeing emerging customer requirements for a tactical and strategic presence overseas, so it makes sense for us to advance the UK’s capability in a global market rather than create more bulky domestic organizations. UK-only consolidations in our space can get very messy and can be short-sighted. We have chosen a far more exciting path.”

It is very important to note that many experts in the domain of IT industry have been talking about the future of the cloud computing and data center business in the United Kingdom post Brexit vote. But, their skepticism is proving to be wrong at this moment. For instance, the AWS has recently confirmed that its plans for the UK based data centers will not change and they will be completed as per earlier schedule.

The healthy competitive environment of the UK will further improve in the domain of cloud business with this acquisition.

Google Launches Cloud Based API for Human Language Understanding

The new API platform will strengthen its existing intelligence services for a deeper understanding of human communication in natural language.

GoogleGreatResponder.com  Google Corporation is aggressively pursuing its ambitions in the domain of cloud computing technologies by providing the innovative ideas with the help of cutting edge technologies. It has announced a new cloud based API platform in the beta version that will understand the human communication in natural languages.

It was also announced that this application would strengthen the previously launched cloud service of the company named as “Parsey McParseface”. Both of these applications have been released in the beta version yet, but the full version will be released soon. It was further informed through the official statement that the main objective of launching of this application is to allow the software developers to create such applications that can understand the communication between the human in a more natural way that the existing services.

The statement further elaborated that Google would be a bit closer in the fierce race to capture the bigger share in the cloud marketplace. This platform will help the software engineers to cope with the challenges that arise in solving the complex mechanism of human communication among the human being. This platform would encourage the developers to develop more advanced applications that provide the intelligent assistant service through cloud automation. The chat bots would be more efficient and effective than the existing forms of automated communication with the human.

While talking about the technical aspects of the platforms, it was further explained that the newly launched application would listen to the human communication, translate it into the text for the software, which will understand, analyze the objective, location, behavior and other information regarding the communication and then it will create the response to that communication in a more effective way.

Google is focusing on multiple innovative projects that are in synch with its wide spread service portfolio and expertise in the business intelligence. Newly launched two cloud based APIs would complement each other to create much stronger and robust platform for the developers so that they can create some innovative ideas and projects.

Many people in the industry believe that Google is going very aggressively into the domain of cloud computing services during many past years, especially in private and hybrid cloud services to provide a tough competition to its major competitors, such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, and others.

Microsoft Wins Overseas Datacenter Data Access Litigation in Federal Court

The verdict of the federal court will help cloud service providers to maintain high security and privacy of data stored in the overseas data centers.

Federal court rulingGreatResponder.com  A federal court verdict regarding the government access to the customer data located in overseas data center that was awaited for over one year has proved to be a shot in the arm for many cloud service providers across the United States of America, especially Microsoft Corporation, which was fighting legally against the magistrate judgement delivered back in May 2014.

According to the earlier judgement delivered by the magistrate, the government agencies have authority to force the cloud service providers to allow the access to the data of the customers located in the overseas data centers. The latest decision in federal court has overturned that decision and delivered the judgement that the government cannot force the Microsoft to give access to the customer data stored in the Ireland data center.

The main reason for this litigation was the access that the government agencies wanted to have to the email server of Microsoft located at the Dublin, Ireland data center. The decision of the magistrate was challenged by Microsoft in the federal court later.

The detailed ruling consists of the 43 pages that clearly highlight that the Stored Communication Act SCA does not allow any government agencies to force the concerned cloud service providers to provide the access to the customer data located in the foreign countries. “Congress did not intend the SCA’s warrant provisions to apply extraterritorially. The SCA warrant in this case may not lawfully be used to compel Microsoft to product to the government the contents of a customer’s email account stored exclusively in Ireland. We therefore reverse the District Court’s denial of Microsoft’s motion to quash; we vacate its order holding Microsoft in civil contempt of court; and we remand this case to the District Court with instructions to quash the warrant insofar as it demands user content stored outside of the United States,”the ruling further maintained.

The decision was welcomed by Microsoft official Mr. Brad Smith in his official statement. He wrote, “Since the day we filed this case, we’ve underscored our belief that technology needs to advance, but timeless values need to endure. Privacy and the proper rule of law stand among these timeless values.”

The US department of justice was very disappointed over this verdict of the federal court.
