Top 25 European Rising Stars 2012: ComodIT

The Top 25 European Rising Stars is a special annual series by CloudTweaks, where we seek to celebrate new cloud startups that have demonstrated the strongest impact across the year. These have earned little or no press coverage nor loquacious claims but they are indeed rising. To authoritatively arrive at the top 25, we have applied a criteria pegged on critical parameters like the quality of management, current funding, valuable service provision, European based and professionalism in all respects.

We welcome you to join us in this year’s tour de force where as you will discover, every rising star has a unique angle that just serves to demonstrate that the potential of the cloud could be more gigantic than most of us can possibly imagine.

ComodIT

…Commandeers how a single perfect click should provision on orchestrated servers

ComodIT is an example of a rising IT firm that crunches big data through open source provisioning either on cloud or private servers. The firm is based in Liege in Belgium and was among the top five firms that attended a critical IT Automation as a Service ceremony in Europe, October 16. Details are next.

Provisioning is one of the key areas of ComodIT which aptly drives the automated part of infrastructural deployment of resources. This technological opus helps to leverage all resources in a datacenter ranging from new applications, documents, encryption needs and user control, from top to bottom. It eliminates the traditional orchestration method of attaching alter egos of the same software at thousands of layers. The latter is time-intensive, laborious and has many manual requirements. The provisioning of ComodIT is cutting-edge because of its automated integrating factor, which creates simultaneous commands along the data and user streams at a single click.

The exponential rise of this cloud computing startup has seen it earn respect from various authoritative quarters. The statement below attests to this:

ComodIT has been chosen for “groundbreaking technologies and business models driving the future of the cloud industry.” This is according to GigaOM’s Structure: Europe 2012 LaunchPad statement upon the ITaaS startup making the shortlist. The latter is a sophisticated contest that arrays on the tech map the best startup in the cloud and related niches.

Its orchestration software known as ‘commodity-agent’ helps to automate and sample network resources in a mind-boggling universe of data, ranging from the end-users to intranets and from project managers to encrypted databases. Instead of former cumbersome apps that had to deploy to each layer, whether for the user or for the filing system, one now uses an omnipresent orchestration tool whose utility is quite abstract. It can locate any piece of information, rummage through the stacks of data in seconds, isolate Internet Protocol addresses for the right one and also govern who accesses what at a given layer. Thus, this is a gagging tool against the users as much as it is a split-second resource manager-cum-retriever.

Alternatively, it is possible to bring together multiple hosts who are in diverse deployment environments through the Synapse orchestration tool. It operates just as in the ComodIT-agent.

The golden retriever of cloud computing is proper deployment. However, this may fail and where does one go? It happens where one so trusts the cloud efficiency that they forget that there is something like documentation. At ComodIT, there is assertion that documentation keeps all technological, management, operational and deployment secrets of an organization by virtue of ‘design.’ It is like saying that without chronological facts, the past never existed: and for a fact, the ComodIT servers seek to pile up all designative elements that cross-tie to the infrastructure of a virtual entity. In case of an error, only the mapping that is in store with the rest of the data will act as a lead. This overcomes possibilities of leaving recovery options to IT consultants who did the deployment.

Recovery options, indeed, are some of the major concerns with ComodIT.com. There might be a thousand data bases but all of them have a core design that networks them. It remains the central focus of the tech kaleidoscope that will be consulted for doing any repairs without missing a detail on the specific virtual infrastructure of the organization. Secondly, the documentation offers regular updates without dousing the remnants of previous versions in case of a fallback. It is like shaping the future of recovery by creating layers of the past in an orderly design. When one needs to investigate a missing detail he or she needs to slit open the contrivance and choose the backdated layers hidden in the core. Still, the above argument makes one question the practicability of the notion that mere design can save a whole infrastructure.

Another breakthrough of this Rising Star is its open source cloud provisioning. ComodIT is a one-click-facilitation that breaks icy barriers between various storage providers. To mention but two, the site reveals compatibility with VMWare and Amazon EC2 compute, all fine examples of quintessential cloud industry platforms.

There is also the breakthrough of tracing the source of a backlog through a different machine altogether. It might be a 404 denial to some off-limit database which requires provider authorization. In this circumstance ComodIT follows parametric regulations that seek permission to penetrate a network without delay. The site’s software can also pay in the same coin to another network if a client so decides to barricade his or her database using firewalls and the like.

Though this might reflect subjectivism, it is essential to give a tidbit of what industry users of the platform are saying. An Information and Communications Technology research firm, CETIC, has affirmed that the ComodIT facilitation influences its gains in “configuration management automation.”

Looking back at the above presentation, it is irresistible to pass the buck to ComodIT as a Rising Star in Europe. It passes the test on simple, instantaneous documentation through its provisioning cloud model.
