Cumulogic: A Team of former Sun Microsystems employees and a dynamic team of engineers passionate about cloud computing

I’ve been watching the incredible team of mission-focused technologists as form Cumulogic since my friend Bill Vass alerted me to their virtuous computing approaches in early 2011.  Since then they have provided many updates on their website of their approach, partners, intent and technology. And technical marketing champion Laura Ventura of Cumulogic has supported my voracious need for more info with a steady stream of reading material (and that is much appreciated Laura).

Over the last two years they have introduced Java Platform-as-a-Service for private clouds, built strong relationships with firms like Citrix, established training activities, fielded a Java cloud applications platform, built a relationship with HP for delivery of Java Platform-as-a-Service, and continued to enhance their platform with features developers need for successful delivery of capability.

Now even more can be revealed publicly about their approach and the many partners they have lined up. They are now available on Nebula and Cloudscaling Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds.

CumuLogic’s original PaaS is now a “Cloud Services Platform” that offers individual cloud services, including Database-as-a-Service (SQL and NoSQL), Elastic Cache and Elastic Load Balancer in addition to a polyglot PaaS. This is essentially the flexibility of AWS inside the firewall. To my knowledge, no other scalable platform can do this.

Here is more from their press release:

CumuLogic Doubles Down on OpenStack
Industry’s first modular Cloud Services Platform is now available on Nebula and Cloudscaling-powered clouds enabling enterprises and Cloud Service Providers to deliver cloud services to end users.

Santa Clara, Calif. – April 17, 2013, CumuLogic, the premier software provider of Cloud Services Platform, today announced that its Cloud Services software suite is now available on Nebula and Cloudscaling Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds. The move will increase underlying infrastructure choices for developers and organizations using the CumuLogic platform, bringing AWS-style Cloud Services to

OpenStack users. Backed by more than 8,800 members representing 850 unique organizations across 114 countries, OpenStack is an open source cloud operating system for public and private clouds.

“We are very excited to deliver CumuLogic’s Cloud Services Platform on Nebula One,” said Chris C. Kemp, co-founder and CEO, Nebula. “Enterprise users now have an integrated, turnkey IaaS and cloud services environment to simplify cloud application development, deployment, and management.” “CumuLogic’s platform is an ideal solution for developers running on Open Cloud System that want a flexible and composable cloud services experience. CumuLogic Database-as-a-Service, PaaS and Elastic Cache for large-scale web applications fit well with a significant segment of our customer base” said Randy Bias, co-founder and CTO of Cloudscaling. “The integration of metering and billing systems is
another layer of simplicity and convenience for our customers who require a range of capabilities in one product.”

The move further extends CumuLogic’s commitment to OpenStack and follows last month’s introduction of CumuLogic Cloud Services on HP Cloud,
http://hpcloud.cumulogic.com. With CumuLogic Cloud Services, enterprises can seamlessly leverage public cloud resources while maintaining a consistent deployment environment across on-premise clouds. CumuLogic platform works out of the box with Essex, Folsom and Grizzly releases.

CumuLogic Cloud Services software suite is being leveraged by Cloud Providers who want to offer private label services on top of their OpenStack IaaS cloud, as well as enterprises that are moving toward an open IT-as-a-Service model. CumuLogic’s platform comes with cloud services, including Database-as-a-Service, Platform-asa- Service, Elastic Cache and Elastic Load Balancer, giving enterprises and Cloud Providers maximum flexibility with their cloud deployment strategy.

About CumuLogic

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...
Digital innovation is the next big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies of which IoT and Big Data are key components, For example: Business boundary innovation is a challenge to excavate third-party business value using IoT and BigData, like Nest Business structure innovation may propose re-building business structure from scratch, as Uber does in the taxicab industry The social model innovation is also a big challenge to the new social architecture with the design fr...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
