"Cloud Computing Expo is the perfect opportunity to launch the latest version of DAAS.com at a time when many service providers are eager to offer their own solutions to gain a foothold in the increasing popular cloud computing market," comments Arvid Fossen, Director of Product Management and DAAS.com. "DAAS.com is already used by service providers in Europe and the platform has undergone an upgrade to add a number of new features based on customer feedback."

The new DAAS.com product focuses on private cloud computing. New features in DAAS.com v2 include a full new GUI, allowing improved control of both virtual and physical devices, a new unbreakable storage setup that integrates with on board SSD technology, virtual desktop provisioning and integrated monitoring. As before, DAAS.com is delivered as a turnkey solution, including hardware, software and support, allowing customers to go live instantly.

Using the DAAS.com interface, users have access to three basic commodities: compute power, storage and connectivity. The DAAS.com platform allows customers to install next to servers, virtual firewalls, network management services, VoIP servers, QoS engines and load balancers. A-Server will be demonstrating key aspects of DAAS.com throughout the three-day event.

DAAS.com uses AMD architecture to provision Windows, Linux and Sun Solaris servers with the built-in Xen and Virtual Box hypervisors. It also includes integrated KVM technology to streamline the installation and configurations of applications and operating systems. There are no restrictions on the type of applications installed within DAAS.com and each server can be assigned boot disks, data disks and temp disks plus a range of add on features such as replication and recovery services.

"We are already in discussion with several U.S. based service providers on rolling out pilot environments using DAAS.com and we plan to announce our first US customer later this year." Fossen adds.

DAAS.com on/offsite installations pricing is available on request. DAAS.com also has remote test accounts available for evaluation purposes. For more information, please visit www.DAAS.com

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
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 ...
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...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
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...

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 keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
