Microsoft and HP to Tap Into Overlooked Private Cloud Market

Cloud Computing on Ulitzer Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard have teamed up on a three-year $250 million partnership to bring about the “next generation computing platform” called HP private cloud. They will be working towards a combined cost effective IT solution encompassing varying levels of hardware, software, and professional services for business applications. The idea seems to be to bundle up a complete virtualization and systems management offering that would work in mega data centers and cloud providing centers. The joint stack would leverage existing products from both companies while plans are also underway for new ones. Microsoft which has already jumped head long into cloud with its public cloud services Azure, is now looking to take on private cloud with HP by its side. Private cloud is a proprietary network that implements cloud strategies behind a fire... (more)

HP Makes News at Discover in Barcelona

BARCELONA — HP, taking a new leap in its marathon to remake itself, has further assembled, refined and delivered the IT infrastructure, big data and cloud means by which other large enterprises can effectively remake themselves. This week here at the HP Discover 2013 conference — despite the gulf of 70 years but originating in the same Silicon Valley byways — has found a kindred spirit in … Facebook. The social media juggernaut, also based in Palo Alto, is often pointed to with both envy and amazement at its new-found and secretive feats of IT data center scale, reach, efficiency and adaptability. It’s a mantle of technological respect that HP itself once long held. So for Facebook’s CIO, Tim Campos, to get on stage in Europe and declare that, "A partner like HP Vertica thinks like we do” and is a “key part” of Facebook’s big data capabilities, is one the best end...

An Introduction to Abbot

Graphical user interface (GUI) testing is a potentially problematic area because constructing effective test cases is more difficult than the corresponding application logic. The roadblocks to effective functional GUI testing are: Traditional test coverage criteria like "80% coverage of the lines of code" may not be sufficient to trap all the user interaction scenarios. End users often use a different user task interaction model than the one conceived by the development team. Functional GUI testing needs to deal with GUI events as well as the effects of the underlying application logic that results in changes to the data and presentation. The common methods for functional GUI testing are the "record and execute" script technique and writing test programs for different scenarios. In the "record and execute," the test designer interacts with the GUI and all the eve... (more)

HP Virtualization to Field Cloud Storage

HP is racing to the rescue of those threatening to drown in their own data, but that Web 2.0 lot had better be able to hold on until the fourth quarter when HP can deliver what it calls “Extreme” storage, the NAS-style ExDS9100. It’s a 10U BladeSystem that can hold 820TB of SATA-based data and through the wonders of HP’s PolyServe clustering can be strung together into a multi-petabyte system – along the lines of what EMC is promising to do with Hulk and Maui widgetry – that can be managed by a single administrator. Its $2-a-gigabyte cost sounds utterly reasonable until you do the math. A full-fledged system will run you north of $1.5 million. One saves on the cost of, say, administrators. The applications accessing the data run on the blades, eliminating a software tier. HP says the box was designed to provision performance and capacity independently for greater f... (more)

HP Launches New Low-End NonStops

HP's got a new entry-level family of NonStop Integrity servers to target at smaller emerging markets and the NonStop installed base still using Mips-based products whose monthly maintenance and support costs, it says, will take a dive if they trade up. It's got in mind SMEs in healthcare, financial service and telecoms, which it claims will now be able to compete better against their bigger competitors. The fault-tolerant NS2000 blade family is built around two or four Intel dual-core Montvale Itanium chips and doubles the performance capacity of the old NonStop entry-level boxes. The chips command either 8GB or 16GB of memory per processor. And the boxes come in AC or DC configurations. Customers can migrate up to the S-series; they run the same apps. ... (more)
