Looking Back at Adaptive Computing in 2012 and What's to Come in the Cloud Management Space
December 24, 2012
Adaptive Computing (News - Alert) has seen quite a successful year in 2012. From new announcements to releases to honors, the company has maintained a full-speed ahead agenda to becoming one of the industry’s most recognized players. It seems appropriate, then, to take a look back at some of this year’s highlights for the company, as well as what the company is expecting for cloud management for 2013.
Not only was Adaptive granted its fifteenth cloud computing patent this summer, but it also revealed new enhancements to its signature Moab HPC Suite, which were aimed to help its customers get the most from high performance computing (HPC) with improved workload management, among other things. Boasting improved topology-based scheduling and integration with third-party technology, these enhancements proved very advantageous when the new version rolled out.
Also this summer, the company was named a contender in the Worldwide Distributed Server/Workload Automation Software 2012 Vendor Analysis MarketScape report by IDC (News - Alert) for the very first time. IDC continued that the vendors reviewed in the report have “the potential for serious impact on this market as it continues to mature and evolve in the coming years.” The report also shed light on a number of Adpative’s strengths, including its expansion and emphasis on its advanced analytics and automated policy-based optimization of virtualization and cloud workloads.
Also this year, Adaptive released its all new Moab Cloud Suite 7.2, which allows users in today’s resourceful age to make the most of their cloud deployment by offering out-of-the-box integration with their existing infrastructure, therefore minimizing system upgrades by leveraging what is already being invested.
Boasting new features and functionalities including multi-group management, a streamlined dashboard portal and a period budget reset capability, Moab Cloud Suite 7.2 ultimately enables IT departments to more easily meet the needs of different organizational groups. “As more businesses introduce private clouds, it’s important to keeps costs at a minimum by making the most of the current infrastructure. We designed Moab Cloud Suite 7.2 to aid them in making the smoothest, most efficient transition possible,” noted Robert Clyde, CEO at Adaptive Computing.
Even more, the company introduced two new editions of its Moab HPC Suite – its Application Portal Edition and Remote Virtualization Edition – which make use of advanced access models to ease the process of data collection and interpretation, as well as enhance the time needed to derive significant results.
So what does the company expect to see in the cloud management space in 2013? Last week, Clyde sat down with Virtual-Strategy Magazine to divulge three cloud computing predictions for the New Year, including the continued growth of bare-metal clouds, the dissipation of cloudbursting, and an increase in heightened application awareness.
