CloudFounders launches new version of CloudFrames private cloud software at Cloud Expo Europe; First demonstration of new version including VMware support; First demonstration of new integrated storage appliance that out performs high cost SANs
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Cloud Expo Europe -- CloudFounders, a leading developer of advanced private cloud software for IT-as-a-Service solutions, will be launching the latest version of CloudFrames, a revolutionary software platform that converts commodity x86 hardware into a multi-function, ultra-reliable and high performance private cloud.
CloudFramesR is different from other private cloud vendors, as it is delivered in an all-in-one software stack that converts standard Dell, HP and IBM hardware into a high performing and ultra-reliable Private Cloud.
"It has been a busy 5 months for us since we showcased our first commercial version of CloudFrames at VMworld and our development teams have been working on feedback from our commercial customers to deliver an update that adds significant functionality," explains Joost Metten, CEO for CloudFounders.
One of the most sought after features is support for the VMware Hypervisor to go alongside existing integration with Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix Xen and open source equivalents. "We have also spent time qualifying and optimising the platform for hardware from Dell, HP and IBM to ensure performance and reliability," Metten adds.
CloudFounders will also showcase a new Integrated Storage Appliance that uses its own Software Defined Storage technology and x86 hardware to deliver low cost yet highly scalable storage in support of cloud and virtualisation solutions. "Late last year, we privately demonstrated this storage innovation to our partner community and already have several enterprises proof-of-concepts underway. Cloud Expo will give us an opportunity to explain to a wider audience that innovative software is the key to unlocking the value of cloud computing." CloudFounders will exhibit at Cloud Expo Europe (Stand 912) for the first time at what is considered the single most important event for unlocking the potential of cloud computing. Cloud Expo will run over the 29th and 30th January at Olympia, London and experts from CloudFounders will be offering hands on demonstrations of the simplicity offered by CloudFrames in designing, deploying and managing a true Private Cloud using low cost commodity hardware.
Key features of CloudFrames 2.0 include: . Cloud Deployment and Management platform . Software Defined Storage delivering over 15000 IOPs . Hypervisor support for Microsoft, Citrix, VMware and others . Built-in Business Continuity including onsite and offsite replication . Unlimited Cloning and Snapshots . Real-time Monitoring and Alerting "CloudFounders sells its software exclusively via its partner network and it is actively recruiting channel and looking for partnerships worldwide typically with VARs that handle the end-to-end IT for small and medium enterprises. Distribution is also an area we are considering," Metten adds.
