Queplix Corp., a provider of data integration and data management, on Friday announced that QTI International, a system integration firm in South Korea, is a new partner in the Queplix Advantage Partner Program. QTI, which works with industry leading manufacturing companies such as Samsung, Hitachi and Toyota, will implement Queplix’s advanced data virtualization technology to integrate extensive product and materials information that is the lifeblood of supply chain management. The partnership with QTI extends Queplix’s presence into Asia and advances delivery of its technology on a worldwide scale.
“In response to customer demand, we’ve been working to integrate large database systems that span multiple manufacturing plants around the world, but found it to be a very challenging endeavor,” said Gyuseop Oh, Ph.D., CEO, QTI International. “When we saw the capabilities of Queplix’s data virtualization platform, we knew immediately it would be the right solution for the hard integration problems we’re trying solve. We look forward to partnering with Queplix and eliminating these problems for our customers so they can focus on the strategic aspects of operating their business, not on the difficulties of getting their systems to work together.”

Many physical resources exist as virtual clusters today, but do clusters work in the cloud? Hypervisor clustering is the standard “Virtualization 1.0” method of creating a resilient, load balancing virtualized environment and, if implemented well, does a reasonable job. But don’t make the mistake of thinking Private Cloud, which would perhaps be better described as “Virtualization 2.0,” is just an extension of its predecessor.
In his session at the 8th International Cloud Expo, Azmir Mohamed, Senior Product Manager at Abiquo, will discuss how Private Cloud is a fundamentally different beast. Different in the potential benefits it offers and long-standing problems it can solve, but also different in how your IT infrastructure team needs to view and manage it and, above all, different in the expectations your users and application groups will have.

Ah, the gloves are coming off. VMware, under the guise of a proprietary virtualization company, is inching up the software stack to horn in on Microsoft’s prized Office turf, a piece of ground well known to its CEO, ex-Microsoft nabob Paul Maritz.
It’s bought SlideRocket, a five-year-old San Francisco SaaS-based business presentation ISV that leverages cloud computing, collaboration, social media and mobile computing platforms, giving it a practically perfect checklist score, especially if you throw in the fact that, in keeping with the custom of the day, it gives its entry-level widgetry away for free.
This checklist paradigm claims more than 20,000 customers and 300,000 users, a base it’s built up since its software left beta in October of 2008. In that space of time it says its widgetry was used to produce 10 million presentations.
