newScale, rPath and Eucalyptus Systems have announced an integrated technology platform that will provide an on-ramp to private and hybrid cloud computing in the enterprise. The technology combination is designed to help businesses achieve maximum IT agility through cloud computing, integrating infrastructure for private and hybrid clouds with enterprise IT self-service and system automation.
As a preferred delivery partner, MomentumSI will bring enterprise IT organizations self-service private and hybrid clouds built on top of the three vendors’ technologies. This service offers a compelling, enterprise-ready option for executives who want to transform their IT departments into internally-managed versions of a public cloud service.
Eucalyptus, newScale (News - Alert) and rPath will jointly demonstrate this technology integration in booth 102 at VMworld 2010, to be held August 30-September 2, 2010, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Interest in self-service private and hybrid cloud computing is surging as enterprise business units press their IT departments to deliver the kinds of simple, on-demand infrastructure services readily available from public clouds like Rackspace or Amazon EC2. Many IT organizations, however, are not ready to make the transition from interest to action. They do not have the infrastructure or process maturity to provide the dynamic elasticity found in the public cloud.
With controlled, consistent services and compute capacity available on-demand for project leads and application development and testing groups, IT can step out of the way and focus on higher-value tasks—freeing up resources and budget for faster product delivery and new innovation. The integrated solution offered by newScale, rPath and Eucalyptus Systems and delivered by MomentumSI creates an on-ramp to self-service private and hybrid cloud computing and can help organizations quickly maximize business agility.
Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions, said that ecosystem-based solutions are the first, best way that many organizations will likely actually use and deploy cloud services.
