CFEngine AS, the Norwegian outfit with the popular eponymous open source configuration and compliance management widgetry for automating distributed infrastructure, has moved its sales operation to Palo Alto in hopes of turning its freeloading Fortune 1000 accounts into paying customers.

Cloud computing as a genre is without a doubt overhyped, and companies big and small race to recast existing products as “next generation” or “cloud.” But among the chaos, there are a few technology trends to watch, and a few young software companies that you should bet on.
In his session at the 9th International Cloud Expo, Greg Bybee, a graduate student at Stanford University on leave from VMware, will go over some of the exciting advancements in the way infrastructure is managed and information is consumed. Technologies include analytic engines and business intelligence, in-memory databases and data caching, synchronous data replication, and distributed storage.

eldavojohn writes “Stanford’s OpenSim software is a human motion modeling package that is currently making the rounds at museums where ‘visitors walk across a pressure-sensitive floor and are presented at the other side with color-coded print outs of their weight distribution, identifying even slight imbalances that might be putting undue stress on their limbs and joints.’ This project can also help with planning surgery (video). The work has been published in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (note that this is a different effort from the virtual world of the same name). Although Stanford’s press release says it is now open source, I cannot find what license they are using, nor can I access their SVN browser after registering.”

Atlantis Computing, a provider of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) storage and performance optimization solutions, has announced that Frankfurter Bankgesellschaft, an international private bank with 7 Billion Swiss Francs under management, has implemented Atlantis ILIO as part of its Citrix XenDesktop desktop virtualization project to reduce the cost of storage by 93 percent and improve the user experience. Axept AG, a Swisscom IT services company, recommended and delivered the Atlantis ILIO solution to Frankfurter Bankgesellschaft, cutting the bank’s VDI storage costs and solving the performance challenges that were preventing the VDI project from being deployed company-wide.
“Atlantis ILIO is an enabler for VDI. If you don’t solve the storage I/O problem, the cost per desktop is extremely high. For Frankfurter Bank, the cost per desktop was 2,000 CHF using our SAN,” said Zdravko Ruzicic, Head of Systems & Network Engineering, Frankfurter Bankgesellschaft. “If you don’t solve the cost and performance issues intelligently, management won’t accept the cost of VDI and it will lead to project cancellation. Atlantis ILIO enabled us to implement VDI for a lower cost than a physical PC by reusing our existing SAN more efficiently and reducing our storage costs by 93 percent in the process.”
