Cloudscale CEO Launches Cloudcel Topic on Ulitzer

Bill McColl is developing a massively parallel cloud-based platform for continuous real-time intelligence on live data streams

Cloudscale Founder and CEO Bill McColl, on Monday, launched Cloudcel topic on Ulitzer.

Cloudcel on Ulitzer offers articles on the Cloudcel platform. Cloudcel enables the world's Excel users to simply and seamlessly exploit the full power of realtime, highly parallel cloud computing to process realtime and historical data of all kinds.

At the recent Hadoop World conference, Doug Cutting, Hadoop Project Founder, remarked that "The Dream" was to provide non-programmers with the power of parallel cloud computing tools such as MapReduce and Hadoop, via simple, easy-to-use spreadsheet-like interfaces.

With Cloudcel, the non-programmers of the world (and the programmers too!) can "live that dream" today.

Not only can you develop and launch massively parallel MapReduce/Hadoop-style cloud computations, simply and seamlessly from within the standard Excel interface, you can also go way beyond tools such as Elastic MapReduce and Hadoop, developing and launching live, continuous, realtime stream processing applications in the cloud, from that same Excel interface.

So if you already have Excel, and also have growing volumes of data you need to handle, your next steps in 2010 are to Go Cloud and Go Parallel.

You'll be surprised how easy it is to get started, and amazed by how powerful it is, as soon as you begin exploiting the elastic scalability of the cloud.

Bill McColl is Founder and CEO, Cloudscale Inc. - which is developing a massively parallel cloud-based platform for continuous real-time intelligence on live data streams.

In 2006, he left Oxford University Computing Laboratory where for over twenty years he had been head of research in parallel computing and scalable systems.

At the time of his departure, he was Professor of Computer Science and Chairman of the Faculty of Computer Science. McColl has published and lectured extensively on the design, analysis and implementation of massively parallel algorithms and systems.

He established and led Oxford Parallel, a major center for research on industrial and business applications of parallel computing at the university. He was also founder and CEO of Sychron Inc., a Silicon Valley VC-backed software company developing massively parallel system software for datacenter and desktop virtualization. Cloudscale Inc.is his second Silicon Valley company.

Ulitzer is the first "new-media" platform in the world that revolutionizes how we will create, deliver, and consume content on the Web.

Ulitzer authors can get started with their first article in a few minutes and may start a new "topic" on any subject or write a story and post it both to their Ulitzer author page and to any existing Ulitzer topic.

The network effect of people using Ulitzer to communicate and collaboratively produce and categorize content is disruptive, bypassing traditional media and middlemen.

Topics published on Ulitzer range from Greek Isles in the Summer to New-Media via Personal Branding and Marketing & Sales.

Ulitzer, Inc. owns more than 400 established and well-known content websites including www.sys-con.com.

Some of the topics will include:- best practices for creating repeatable deployments of OpenStack- multi-site considerations- how to customize OpenStack to integrate with your existing systems and security best practices.
Transformation Abstract Encryption and privacy in the cloud is a daunting yet essential task for both security practitioners and application developers, especially as applications continue moving to the cloud at an exponential rate. What are some best practices and processes for enterprises to follow that balance both security and ease of use requirements? What technologies are available to empower enterprises with code, data and key protection from cloud providers, system administrators, insiders, government compulsion, and network hackers? Join Ambuj Kumar (CEO, Fortanix) to discuss best practices and technologies for enterprises to securely transition to a multi-cloud hybrid world.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
