Go Modular In the Virtualization of Big Data With CloudVolumescloud-volumes

CloudVolume is a virtualization giant that focuses on the innovativeness of its products on the cloud, including modulating applications without swapping those of the client. Though its apps are advanced than most of what the clientele uses, it integrates the latter natively with no notable change in application behavior. This is unlike situations where customers have to upgrade to new software if they are to achieve parity with a new system. Alternatively, big data users do not have to expect a slow, protracted process similar to how their CPU performs when processing gigabytes of information. Rather, the advanced systems gobble up huge apps or excessive data of the client in what it terms on its website as ‘milliseconds.’

Modulation in Different Aspects

What really makes this company tick? The easiest answer to the question is that it is a modulator of infrastructure, apps, integration and scalability. Here is a look at each of these elements successively.

Virtual Infrastructure: CloudVolume directly penetrates and becomes a part of the existing systems or rather the latter setup transforms to the system of the startup. Even in cases where there are thousands of servers to gobble up, it does this without altering anything and at once. In short, it shuns the long path home where one has to synchronize with each server successively for it does so simultaneously. The client side remains intact with its existing hypervisor and network machinery.

Apps: The factor to key in for a machine to integrate with all apps at once is that each app ought to be accessible natively as before the integration. What is the purpose of Software as a Service (SaaS) anyway? Secondly, if special administrative attributes of applications including prohibited copies are available, the system will connote a single copy for all inclusive servers to share, which in a way retains the same prohibition or read-only status of the original.

Integration: One way of achieving parity of applications, storage and infrastructure elements is by ensuring that all volumes are accessible on even incompatible machines. CloudVolumes does this via a clone-free premise. One does not have to clone a volume in order to be accessible in a new device. The instantaneous modulation power of the system does this, making all volumes available on any machine.

Scalability: Workloads always increase in virtual environments. There is registry information, like log files, and mammoth big data output to keep of a client’s organization. This is why storage through a scalable system like that of this startup is essential.

The Team behind the Startup

CloudVolumes has beginnings of 2011 when a team of experts configured a modulated virtual infrastructure system. The Chief Executive, Raj Parekh was a co-founder of a venture capital company on the West Coast. The Chief Technology Officer also worked in a technology firm that focused on virtual security. The other team members have each a gamut of former links with leading IT and marketing firms.

Recent Activity of the Firm

A partnership with Dell came to be in July, 2013 when the later electronics giant provisioned a virtualization application from CloudVolumes. This brings the startup a step closer to offloading the cloud onto the desktop for the smart user. This goes by the name of Enterprise Desktop, whose virtual appearance creates an aura of being inside a real desktop. It works for, among others, Microsoft RDS.

Thus, if seeking to make configuration of servers an easy task that demand just a simple, one-off relocation process, then this is the cloud offer to seek. Despite being relatively young, CloudVolumes has managed pretty well to make a name for itself in a world where even Dell seeks partnership with the firm. The greatest winning attribute, however, which makes the start up earn a permanent pace, among its peers, is the level of modulation on these scores: infrastructure, integration, app transitioning and volume sharing. This alone makes it one of the leading North American cloud startups.
