Embotics Joins OpenStack Community

 Embotics Corporation, a pioneer in virtualization and cloud management software, today announced it has joined the OpenStack community. As an active member of the OpenStack community, Embotics is continuing its commitment to integrate with OpenStack in future Embotics vCommander releases.

Embotics is executing a strategy of brokering IT services from any hypervisor, any cloud and remains committed to giving its enterprise customers the freedom of choice to avoid cloud platform lock-in. While VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V are commonly recognized today as leading on-premises platforms, OpenStack is emerging as another platform of interest for enterprises.

OpenStack was founded by Rackspace Hosting, NASA and a host of other companies. It has grown into a global software community of developers who are collaborating on an extremely scalable open source cloud operating system and standard. The group’s mission is to enable any organization to create and offer cloud computing services running on standard hardware.

Embotics’ flagship product, vCommander, was developed for mid-sized to large enterprises that are building and managing clouds. The platform provides multi-hypervisor management, automation and self-service provisioning to help enterprises gain visibility and control of their virtualized environments. Embotics vCommander deploys in 15 minutes and delivers the industry’s fastest time to value. vCommander also provides a multi-tenant cost model, analytics and cross-platform workload migration to help customers make economically justified platform decisions for their virtualized data centers, setting it apart from other cloud management platforms.

“OpenStack has gained momentum in the industry, and the OpenStack community represents an intelligent collaboration of cloud computing experts,” said Jay Litkey, CEO of Embotics. “Our participation in the community and commitment to integrate OpenStack services into upcoming vCommander releases delivers on our vow to support any hypervisor and any cloud, which is essential in a landscape where data centers are increasingly managing multiple hypervisors across disparate cloud platforms.”

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...
