3Tera introduces Cloud Computing
3Tera, Inc., a innovator of cloud computing technology and utility computing services, today announced at the Web 2.0 Expo its Cloudware architecture for Cloud Computing without Compromise, a flexible architecture empowering customers to build and run large-scale applications in the cloud without compromising their choices of operating system, middleware, security, location, architecture and vendors.
The company explains that Cloudware is based upon technology proven in their AppLogic grid operating system. It says the Cloudware architecture incorporates the fundamental building blocks used in developing today's most popular applications: storage, computing, connectivity, security, and how they all relate to each other in a far reaching architecture for building an open cloud computing system.
Cloudware is intended to be vendor agnostic so that any third party vendor's software can be incorporated in a Cloudware-enabled system. It claims that the new architecture will initially support the most popular operating systems - Linux, Solaris and Windows - and is targeted toward clients who want to explore the extreme scale and flexibility of cloud computing infrastructures quickly and easily.
It declared that it will be demonstrating for the first time new capabilities that are the foundation for its Cloud Computing without Compromise architecture at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco.
It adds that some of the upcoming features include adding support for Solaris and Windows to the existing support for Linux; choice of multiple data centers worldwide, pre-built MySQL clusters, database replication appliances and NAS integration with third-party storage solutions.
"The Web has succeeded by allowing each individual or company to add their own unique capabilities to the system," said Peter Nickolov, President and CTO, 3Tera, Inc.
"Cloud Computing should develop the same way, and 3Tera is demonstrating that there are no architectural obstacles to doing so. Giving developers the ability to write and design their applications and services with whatever software and architecture they choose is at the heart of Cloud Computing without Compromise."
"With Cloud Computing without Compromise, small shops can have the most modern, world-class IT infrastructure and can grow dynamically as their businesses grow," said Barry X Lynn, Chairman and CEO, 3Tera, Inc. "Enterprises can always have available the resources they need while only paying for what they consume."
