Terracotta and Eucalyptus Partner to Deliver High-Performance Data Scaling in Private Cloud Environments

Terracotta, the leader in simple scalability for Java applications, and Eucalyptus Systems, Inc., creators of the leading open source private cloud platform, today announced a partnership to provide enterprises with an open source solution that maximizes data scalability and application performance in a private cloud environment. Under the agreement, the two companies will provide tighter integration between Terracotta technology and Eucalyptus software as well as engage in joint sales and marketing activities.

Enterprises adopting cloud architectures can face challenges related to the elastic provisioning of compute clouds on existing data center infrastructure and the inability of the data layer to scale at the same rate as the compute layer. Now, the combination of Eucalyptus and Terracotta allows large-scale enterprises to provision private clouds on the Amazon AWS-compatible Eucalyptus private cloud platform and easily capitalize on the elasticity, latency and flexibility of the cloud.

Terracotta provides customers access to a seamless scalability continuum through data virtualization. With simple configuration changes, applications can scale from a single server using industry-standard interfaces such as Ehcache to many nodes, even in highly virtualized environments such as private clouds. Terracotta provides users with optimum data tier scalability and performance by addressing the biggest bottleneck in deploying private clouds; relational databases that cannot scale to meet the demand of the expanding application and are ill-suited for cloud architectures.

“Terracotta provides a highly effective approach to managing our customers’ application data within Eucalyptus private cloud environments, reducing the need to over-invest in costly database software,” said Woody Rollins, CEO and co-founder of Eucalyptus Systems. “Together we are making private clouds a viable option for managing critical applications and processes at even the highest workloads.”

Eucalyptus is an open source software infrastructure for implementing on-premise cloud computing using an organization’s own information technology (IT) infrastructure, without modification, special-purpose hardware or reconfiguration. Eucalyptus turns data center resources such as machines, networks and storage systems into a “cloud” that is controlled and customized by local IT. Eucalyptus is the only cloud architecture to support the same application programming interfaces (APIs) as public clouds, and today Eucalyptus is fully compatible with the Amazon AWS public cloud infrastructure. The Eucalyptus design gives users the flexibility to seamlessly move applications from on-premise Eucalyptus clouds to public clouds, and vice versa. Eucalyptus also makes it easy to deploy “hybrid” clouds, which use public and private cloud resources together to get the unique benefits of each.

“Our partnership with Eucalyptus is ideal for enterprises that are adopting the cloud as their IT infrastructure for deploying highly scalable applications to their employees and customers,” said Amit Pandey, CEO of Terracotta. “By addressing the scalability of the data layer and the ability to easily provision elastic cloud resources within internal infrastructure, Eucalyptus and Terracotta are empowering enterprises to build the most cost-effective private clouds using commodity hardware and the virtualization technology of their choice.”

Join Terracotta and Eucalyptus for an upcoming webcast on February 25 at 11:00 a.m. US Pacific time, 2:00 p.m. Eastern.
The companies will demonstrate the enterprise-level benefits of their combined solutions. Please visit this link for more information and to sign up for this webinar: http://terracotta.webex.com

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
