Zeus Software Now Available on Amazon EC2

The platform will make web development easier for companies and developers

Zeus Technology announced its flagship web traffic management solution, Zeus Traffic Manager 6.0, is available on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).

The solution gives companies access to extra computing power with the tools to deliver exceptional online services on a pay-as-you-go basis.

The platform will make web development easier for companies and developers. Using a simple web service interface, users can monitor and control web traffic and automate maintenance to ensure online services are always fast and available even during high peaks in web traffic.

Zeus is packaged on Amazon EC2 as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). An AMI is a template from which virtual machines can be created.

Users create one or more ‘instances' of this AMI, where each instance is a Virtual Appliance with Zeus software preinstalled. To use Zeus Traffic Manager 6.0, companies simply need to log on to the instance and configure it.

Martin Gill, Director, HomeMade Digital, a digital service provider for major UK charities says, "When organizations need to respond to emergencies quickly, we need to scale their IT infrastructure and handle extra web traffic seamlessly. We've recently rolled out the full functionality offered by Zeus Traffic Manager 6.0 in the Amazon Web Services Cloud, as we feel it's the best solution available to help us do exactly what we need. By scaling fast when needs arise, reducing page response times and data transfer costs, we're able to keep our client's hardware costs to a minimum while still providing a very high quality of service."

"We are pleased that Zeus is leveraging AWS to extend to their customers the Cloud infrastructure that addresses the integration, security, and performance needs that businesses require," said Terry Wise, Director of Business Development for Amazon Web Services. "Amazon EC2 provides an ideal environment to help meet the demands of services like Zeus Traffic Manager, while providing on demand pricing that is cost efficient."

Paul Brennan, CEO, Zeus Technology comments, "Many enterprises need sophisticated web traffic management, particularly at the planning or production stages of web service development. Offering our solution on the Amazon Web Services Cloud gives customers the ability to tap into extra power for very little cost even during these early stages of development. Our unique software architecture addresses this need, making it an ideal fit for any application, whether they are currently operating in Amazon on EC2 or designed for future migration to the Cloud." otherwise.

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 ...
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
CloudEXPO New York 2018, colocated with DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
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 bene...
