Install Cloud Apps. Rule the Universe

We wanted to release and test a product line which we believe will have a great impact on Cloud hosting

For the past few months Solar VPS has been conducting an open lab beta test accessible for all Solar VPS clients. The test, known as Cosmo’s Lab, featured a product line called SolarSystem Cloud Apps on Demand, or One Click A.I. A screen shot can be seen below:

The idea behind the laboratory test was very simple: like Google’s Beta Lab’s, we wanted to release and test a product line which we believe will have a great impact on the Cloud hosting and general marketplace. The product line is Cloud Apps on Demand. In short, SolarSystem Cloud Apps on Demand featured 260 + Cloud Applications which our clients could install with the single click of a button. Just as Softaculous acts as an auto-script installer, we built SolarSystem Cloud Apps on Demand to install the most popular and useful Cloud applications with one click. We wanted to build a solution which was dead simple to use, highly useful and extremely valuable to the marketplace.

SolarSystem Cloud Apps on Demand Stage Selection

The Simple Cloud
When you get into it, SolarSystem Cloud Apps on Demand is very simple. Pick your Cloud Application, click install, rule the Universe. The idea is very simple and we hit on it by looking at Solar VPS solutions and more importantly the solutions other Cloud and web hosting providers were/are currently offering the marketplace.

Above all else, our main goal is to make solutions which are simple and powerful. Easy to use and highly useful. That’s it. While conducting market research, we began seeing other providers offering a limited number of application (WordPress, Joomla, Magento) however all of the heavy lifting (setting up, installation, configuring) was set on the shoulders of the consumer. While this might work for the more technical, for the blogger just looking to get his/her thoughts out to the world, this model doesn’t work. The reason why free WordPress blogs are so popular is found in their simplicity. Sign up for a WordPress blog. Begin blogging. It’s that simple. From this motto, we built SolarSystem Cloud Applications on Demand.

Stage 6 Solar VPS SolarSystem Cloud Apps on Demand

SolarSystem Cloud Apps on Demand is the best of both worlds. Simplicity and power. You need an ecommerce application or a blogging application or an education application? Scroll through our list of over 260 application, click install and off you go.

Whereas the rest of the marketplace is stuck offering Cloud solutions which require technical background, we are of the firm belief that non technical people need technical solutions to run their personal and business lives. This is where the simplicity of SolarSystem Cloud Apps on Demand thrives. It provides real world useful applications for Cloud based solutions. So go on, get going. Launch your WordPress blog, Joomla or Drupal Install, osCommerce or Magento platform with the click of a button. SolarSystem Cloud Apps on Demand has what you need.

In today's always-on world, customer expectations have changed. Competitive differentiation is delivered through rapid software innovations, the ability to respond to issues quickly and by releasing high-quality code with minimal interruptions. DevOps isn't some far off goal; it's methodologies and practices are a response to this demand. The demand to go faster. The demand for more uptime. The demand to innovate. In this keynote, we will cover the Nutanix Developer Stack. Built from the foundation of software-defined infrastructure, Nutanix has rapidly expanded into full application lifecycle management across any infrastructure or cloud .Join us as we delve into how the Nutanix Developer Stack makes it easy to build hybrid cloud applications by weaving DBaaS, micro segmentation, event driven lifecycle operations, and both financial and cloud governance together into a single unified st...
"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Sold by Nutanix, Nutanix Mine with Veeam can be deployed in minutes and simplifies the full lifecycle of data backup operations, including on-going management, scaling and troubleshooting. The offering combines highly-efficient storage working in concert with Veeam Backup and Replication, helping customers achieve comprehensive data protection for all their workloads — virtual, physical and private cloud —to meet increasing business demands for uptime and productivity.
While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of Strategic Alliances at Kentik, discussed tactics and tools to bridge the gap between IoT project teams and the network planning and operations functions that play a significant role in project success.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lavi, a Nutanix DevOps Solution Architect, explored the ways that Nutanix technologies empower teams to react faster than ever before and connect teams in ways that were either too complex or simply impossible with traditional infrastructures.
