SL Corporation and CloudTran to Provide Joint Solution to Keep an Eye on How Corporate Data is Stored and Accessed in the Cloud

Extensive monitoring capabilities will help to enable business decisions that reduce operating costs

CORTE MADERA, CA – SEPTEMBER 27, 2011 – SL Corporation®, a leading provider of Application Performance Monitoring and middleware monitoring solutions, and CloudTran, a provider of software that enables corporations to leverage Cloud Computing technology for cost-effective data processing, today announced that the two companies have agreed to develop a joint solution to monitor the effectiveness of data placement in public, private and hybrid cloud-computing environments. Such monitoring will help mutual customers to make better decisions about data placement and workloads, and can dramatically reduce the cost of operating in Cloud Computing environments.

Until now, it has been difficult for many corporations to take advantage of Cloud Computing due to concerns of security and control over important corporate data. SL and CloudTran seek to address such concerns through a joint solution that gives companies the visibility necessary to ensure data is reliably stored and located for optimal cost savings and control.

“RTView’s light footprint and ability to involve all necessary data make the platform uniquely suited for component-oriented application monitoring in the cloud,” said Tom Lubinski, Founder and CEO of SL Corporation. “The monitoring of CloudTran’s offering is a natural extension to our highly regarded monitoring solution for Oracle Coherence, and we expect it will deliver great value to our mutual customers.”

“Corporations that use Cloud Computing technology must be able to monitor and control the location of sensitive corporate data,” said Tom Henn, CEO and President, CloudTran. “The combined CloudTran/SL solution will make it possible to distribute data throughout the world while maintaining a close watch over the transactions that access that data and the systems that house it.”

“Cloud Computing” allows an application to use the bundled computational power of many, low-cost computers to perform its work, rather than requiring a single, large and expensive mainframe computer. This has the potential to drive lower capital and operating costs, and improved bottom-line profit for large enterprises.

CloudTran Raises Funds for Round of Financing

(Pleasanton, CA – May 24, 2011) – CloudTran, a provider of transaction processing solutions for cloud computing, today announced it has secured new funding from a strategic partner. These funds will be used to fuel product development efforts, adding support for the 10gen MongoDB document-oriented database.

CloudTran offers the CloudTran Dynamic Transaction Manger™ product, which is software infrastructure used to easily create and run highly scalable applications. These applications, such as eCommerce websites, online games, and payment processing systems, must maintain fast response times despite potentially huge and un-planned user loads. CloudTran employs patent-pending technology that integrates in-memory data caches, providing fast access to data, and back-end data storage systems, providing long-term data persistence. Applications using CloudTran can handle up to 30-times greater workloads compared to using databases alone.

With this new funding, CloudTran intends to add support for the 10gen’s MongoDB product, an open-source, document-oriented database. This integration can dramatically reduce the costs of operating large-scale applications by providing an alternative to expensive licensing of traditional databases. Support for MongoDB is expected to be released in the third quarter of this year.

“Mainstream IT organizations and SaaS vendors will find CloudTran to be an essential product in building scalable, transaction-oriented applications without specialized development skills,” said Tom Henn, CEO and president, CloudTran. “We’re pleased to be adding this new funding to expand our product offering.”

CloudTran Delivers Capabilities Built on the Rackspace Cloud that Target Hybrid Clouds, Joins Rackspace Cloud Tools Program

(Pleasanton, CA – May 3, 2011) – CloudTran, a provider of transaction processing solutions for the cloud, today announced the availability of its products built on top of the Rackspace Cloud, allowing critical business applications to now take advantage of popular cloud computing techniques. In addition, CloudTran has entered into the Rackspace® Hosting (NYSE: RAX) Cloud Tools Program. This solution will dramatically reduce operating costs for these applications while providing a growth path as businesses expand operations.

“Cloud computing” allows an application to use the bundled computational power of many, low-cost computers to perform its work, rather than requiring a single large and expensive mainframe computer. This typically results in lower operating costs and improves bottom line profit for large enterprises. Previous to this announcement, transactional business applications (e.g., eCommerce, invoice processing, inventory management) were unable to fully benefit from cloud computing because technology did not exist to process large volumes of business transactions across all computers in “the cloud.” Now, CloudTran is leveraging the Rackspace Cloud to provide an integrated solution, removing this barrier.

“Business-critical applications have special needs for processing large volumes of transactions on a time-sensitive basis,” said Tom Henn, CEO and president, CloudTran. “Now these types of applications can run in the industry-leading Rackspace Cloud, reducing operating costs and improving bottom line profit.”

“CloudTran is delivering an important ability to the commercial marketplace for processing business-critical transactions across cloud computing resources,” said Nishan Sivathasan, director of corporate development at Rackspace. “Large eCommerce websites, enterprise IT, and even SaaS vendors now have the ability to experience even more benefits by using Rackspace and CloudTran for their cloud computing needs.”

CloudTran specifically targets their solutions at businesses deploying "Hybrid Clouds," which combine private, dedicated computing resources with those available from publically available cloud resources from Rackspace. As many mainstream IT organizations worry about the security of holding sensitive data in public clouds, the CloudTran solution built on top of the Rackspace Cloud provides a stepping stone approach that allows sensitive data to remain in highly-controlled, dedicated computers, while less-sensitive information can be migrated to public clouds on an as-needed basis. A single, unified computing architecture from CloudTran make this possible in ways that are transparent to IT developers and operations personnel, greatly reducing the complexity of administering such an environment.

The combined XAP-CloudTran infrastructure gives IT organizations the tools and infrastructure components required to build and deploy database-focused enterprise applications in the cloud by providing a simple Java view of data, transactions and automatic distribution within public clouds, private clouds, and hybrid combinations.

Scalability is key to transaction processing; GigaSpaces dynamically and linearly scales at the in-memory data level, while CloudTran provides scalability at the persistent data level by logically organizing data stored across multiple computing nodes. By using XAP as the infrastructure, CloudTran can process thousands of transactions each second, making it suitable for a broad range of online transaction processing solutions, such as payment processing, order entry, and inventory tracking.

CloudTran provides a data modeling tool and a transaction manager that implements ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) transactions, and integrates the Gigaspaces in-memory grid and persistent data stores. CloudTran also provides hot failover recovery, which rebuilds data within the Gigaspaces’ grid if a node fails.

“Enterprises need platforms that enable today’s data-focused applications in the cloud,” says Adi Paz, GigaSpaces Executive Vice President for Marketing and Business Development. “With XAP and CloudTran, CIOs and development teams have the tools necessary to deliver scalable, database-intensive applications within any environment.”
