READING, England, January 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Pulsant - Powering IT, today announced that its Enterprise Cloud and Enterprise Cloud VDC service has achieved VMware vCloud® Powered status, illustrating to customers that the company's cloud services are underpinned by VMware's leading virtualization and cloud computing technology, namely VMware vSphere® and VMware vCloud® Director™. A member of the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP), the Enterprise Cloud and Enterprise Cloud VDC VMware vCloud Powered service delivers a set of cloud computing services across a common platform, supporting the largest set of existing applications and offering distinctive application mobility uniquely available from VMware.

What we are bringing to market now is true next generation cloud - it's not just an upgrade or enhancement. Pulsant can truly deliver on cloud's promise of unlimited scalability, total flexibility, quicker access and processing. Our customer trails have recorded a 40-50% increase in speed and 20% reduction in power usage."

"The VMware vCloud® Powered program was developed to enable our service provider partners to differentiate themselves and help them bring their enterprise-class cloud services to market in this competitive landscape," said Gavin Jackson, director, vCloud & Service Providers, EMEA, VMware. "We look forward to supporting Pulsant further as it delivers on the agility and performance customers are looking for in the cloud computing landscape."

Customers of Pulsant have the ability to move workloads from their VMware vSphere-based virtualized or private cloud environment to the VMware vCloud Powered service and back again. This application portability is a key differentiator allowing customers to achieve the flexibility and security they need while enabling increased IT agility.

Pulsant sought VMware vCloud® Powered validation in order to highlight the expansion of its enterprise-class cloud solutions, while providing the security and agility customers require in their cloud solutions.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
A valuable conference experience generates new contacts, sales leads, potential strategic partners and potential investors; helps gather competitive intelligence and even provides inspiration for new products and services. Conference Guru works with conference organizers to pass great deals to great conferences, helping you discover new conferences and increase your return on investment.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
