StrataScale Unveils New Cloud and Hybrid Solutions on World's Most Reliable Platform

Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Automated Managed Hosting, and Hybrid Hosting Services to be Available 24/7 through Easy-to-use Storefront

SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- StrataScale, Inc., makers of the world's first fully Automated Managed Hosting solution, today announced the addition of three best-of-breed cloud offerings that are tailored to meet the unique infrastructure needs of any business regardless of size. In addition to its flagship physical Automated Managed Hosting service, StrataScale has developed the industry's most reliable, flexible, and secure public and private virtualized clouds. The company also unveiled a one-of-a-kind Hybrid Hosting solution that allows customers to seamlessly integrate physical managed servers and virtualized cloud servers on-the-fly in the same secure network and optionally cross connected with a client's colocation infrastructure. Unlike any other cloud service on the market, each of StrataScale's cloud offerings feature enterprise-grade redundant components on servers housed in parent company RagingWire Enterprise Solution Inc.'s world-class 220,000 square foot data center with 99.999% availability and N+2 redundancy. This distinction effectively allows any business to take advantage of an immediate infrastructure solution that matches quality previously only available to Fortune 1000 corporations.

StrataScale also debuted an easy-to-use storefront that instantly allows customers to make purchases or changes to their existing services. Customers can automatically scale up or down and add new computers and IT components without speaking to a sales representative. In an industry known for complex pricing, the new storefront showcases StrataScale's straightforward and transparent approach to pricing. StrataScale's configuration interface makes set-up and infrastructure changes incredibly simple through complete automation of all systems, including physical managed servers, public virtual servers and private virtual servers. Advanced features that once were only available in virtual environments are now transparently available for both physical servers and virtual cloud solutions within the StrataScale architecture.

"This is a very exciting time for StrataScale, as the company releases what we believe is the most technologically advanced suite of cloud services ever developed," said Yatish Mishra, founder, president and chief technology officer of StrataScale. "We listened to our customers' needs and took the time to build each product line with the finest components available. Our cloud offerings have been repeatedly tested to ensure the optimum experience for our customer base."

New Offerings Allow Any Business Access to Instant Enterprise-grade Infrastructure

StrataScale's Public and Private Cloud offerings deliver hypervisor-based virtual machine instances running CentOS, Red Hat Linux, or Microsoft Windows. The Public Cloud offers businesses the most cost-effective, reliable, and responsive computing platform to utilize shared physical computing resources, while the Private Cloud gives customers running mission-critical applications a remarkably stable and secure server environment dedicated solely to their business. StrataScale's Private Cloud is also the industry's first private cloud that can be purchased through a storefront and completely configured through a web portal.

StrataScale's exclusive Hybrid Hosting solution enables customers to seamlessly integrate managed servers and cloud servers to meet all of their infrastructure needs at any given moment. Hybrid Cloud customers can run Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Automated Managed Hosting servers all on the same network, managed through the StrataScale portal. It is as flexible as a hosting solution can get, allowing customers to instantly change their services with the click of a button whether physical or virtual and without compromising security or reliability.

"We had tested so many of the mainstream on-demand infrastructure offerings. But we're in the business of secure data backup for businesses and medical offices, so we weren't comfortable with having everything just 'in the cloud.' Visiting StrataScale's world-class facilities instantly relieved our security concerns," said Jason Thayer, founder and chief technology officer of Wintensive Technologies. "By combining the ease, flexibility and scalability of on-demand server deployments with a more robust Physical, Private and Hybrid infrastructure, StrataScale has allowed us to significantly differentiate our business from competitors."

"The combination of traditional and cloud infrastructure is going to be a staple of the market for the foreseeable future," said Antonio Piraino, vice president and research director at Tier1 Research. "Hosting providers like StrataScale, that work on enabling administrators to manage and provision their server environments through a single pane of glass will be solving a problem that has long frustrated and hindered integrated operations; and will make it a leading choice for IT operations staff."

StrataScale's innovative Automated Managed Hosting service remains an ideal solution for businesses seeking the utmost in security and reliability without sacrificing scalability and flexibility. It offers cloudlike simplicity on non-shared physical servers. Automated Managed Hosting services can now be purchased or modified through the new storefront.

The new Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Hosting services will be available for purchase through the StrataScale storefront on April 1, 2010. For technical specifications for each service offering, please visit www.stratascale.com.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
