rPath Recognized for Next-Generation IT Automation Solutions by BTC Logic and AlwaysOn

rPath, an innovator in automating system deployment and maintenance, today announced that it has been ranked a Top 10 Cloud Foundation Company by BTC Logic, an inter-disciplinary business, technology, and creative consulting group; and the category winner for Cloud Management Tools within the AlwaysOn OnDemand 100 list.

The list of Top 10 Cloud Foundation Companies is part of a larger research report, “The BTC Logic Top 10 Cloud Rankings,” a review of the Top 10 Cloud Companies in five categories. The free report and category rankings can be found at http://www.btclogic.com/pov/rankings.cfm.

The BTC Top 10 Cloud Foundation Companies are those companies that provide the tools and software that make building a cloud infrastructure possible. The rankings provide a systematic approach to evaluating cloud vendors against the needs of an enterprise. To develop the cloud rankings, BTC Logic analyzed its database of over 600 companies offering cloud-related products and services. BTC Logic then distilled the list down to the top 10 companies in five categories—cloud infrastructure, cloud foundation, network services, cloud platform, and cloud applications.

“Cloud computing has the potential to create disruption and growth in the enterprise,” said Elliott Lowen, vice president of Technology Group, BTC Logic, and main architect of the Cloud Ranking Report. “We included rPath in our rankings because it offers an elegant way to mitigate the threat of massive systems proliferation being driven by virtualization and cloud computing. rPath’s intelligent approach to system automation is the foundation for managing IT going forward.”

The AlwaysOn OnDemand 100 list is selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team, along with partners at Morgan Stanley, KPMG, Hewlett-Packard, and industry experts who engaged in a rigorous three-month selection process to identify the top 100 private companies that are taking old notions of data management, customer relationships, and infrastructure and forging solutions that will lead to industry shake-up and huge value creation opportunities. Companies were selected based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

Mike Torto, chief executive officer of rPath, said, “Companies moving to cloud computing will find that the cap ex advantage is offset by a significant op ex costs. It’s one of the dirty little secrets of cloud computing. Your systems may be running offsite, but they still need to be managed. And because it’s so easy to deploy systems in the cloud, your management burden can explode. rPath provides an automation foundation that lets companies handle scale without adding cost. We let companies package systems so they can run in any physical, virtual or cloud environment, giving enterprises the option to move workloads to the cloud and between cloud environments.”

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
