Couchbase Partners with ElasticBox, Cloudsoft and CumuLogic

Existing partners for cloud deployments include AWS, VMware, Windows Azure, HP Cloud Services, Red Hat’s OpenShift & Eucalyptus

Couchbase on Tuesday announced the expansion of its partner ecosystem. Newly announced partnerships with Cloudsoft, CumuLogic and ElasticBox will give customers the option to deploy Couchbase Server to public, private, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. With these new partners, customers can now automate the process of provisioning Couchbase Server to Amazon Web Services, HP Cloud, IBM SoftLayer, VMware, OpenStack, and more.

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of Cloudsoft, CumuLogic and ElasticBox as new partners,” said Rod Hamlin, VP of Business Development, Couchbase. “Adding these partners ensures customers can find the right option for their business to deploy Couchbase Server to their cloud of choice, whether it’s on-premises, public or hybrid, and power their applications with the highest performing and most scalable NoSQL database.”

Recent projections from Gartner indicate that more enterprises will be moving their infrastructure to the cloud, making the expansion of Couchbase's cloud deployment ecosystem timely and relevant. In its 2013 Public Cloud Services Forecast Overview, Gartner projected a 17.7 percent growth rate for public cloud services through 2016. Gartner also projects that cloud computing will account for the majority of new IT spend by 2016 and by the end of 2017, nearly half of large enterprises will have hybrid cloud deployments, emphasizing the importance of enabling deployment of Couchbase technology across all cloud-based environments.

Couchbase Cloud Eco-System
Cloudsoft, CumuLogic and ElasticBox join a thriving Couchbase partner ecosystem. Existing partners for cloud deployments include Amazon Web Services, RightScale, VMware, Windows Azure, HP Cloud Services, Red Hat’s OpenShift, and Eucalyptus. Each of the new partners provides unique benefit to businesses wanting to leverage Couchbase.

Cloudsoft
Cloudsoft Application Management Platform (AMP), built on the open source Apache Brooklyn project, streamlines the deployment and operation of applications by orchestrating services, platforms and infrastructure dynamically and in real time. Enterprises building and running applications can compose these from a wide range of software components, policies and target environments. As a Couchbase partner and an equally committed open source company, Cloudsoft has already contributed support for Couchbase Server to the Apache Brooklyn project and is actively working with Couchbase to add Couchbase Mobile support.

CumuLogic
CumuLogic’s Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) platform provides a quick and easy way to access fully managed database instances on-premises, on any Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud or virtual machine resource pool. As a Couchbase partner, CumuLogic will provide access to Couchbase “as a service” in public, private and hybrid cloud environments, dramatically improving time-to-market of mission critical applications.

ElasticBox
ElasticBox is an IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) technology that streamlines the development, deployment, and management of applications for any cloud. ElasticBox has pioneered a simplified, modular, service-based application development structure, where fully configured components of application architecture are encapsulated as “Boxes” and made available as a service. The technology provides real time collaboration and a decrease of application delivery time for enterprises. As a Couchbase partner, ElasticBox will create “Couchbase Box”, allowing ElasticBox users to quickly deploy and run Couchbase in the cloud.

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Business Unit at CA Technologies, will share his vision about the true ‘DevOps Royalty’ and how it will take a new breed of digital cloud craftsman, architecting new platforms with a new set of tools to achieve it. He will also present a number of important insights and findings from a recent cloud and DevOps study – outlining the synergies high performance teams are exploiting to gain significant busin...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chief Architect at Cedexis, covered strategies for orchestrating global traffic achieving the highest-quality end-user experience while spanning multiple clouds and data centers and reacting at the velocity of modern development teams.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be looking at some significant engineering investment. On-demand, serverless computing enables developers to try out a fleet of devices on IoT gateways with ease. With a sensor simulator built on top of AWS Lambda, it’s possible to elastically generate device sensors that report their state to the cloud.
CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cross-functional purposes. So, when traditional IT Service Management (ITSM) meets the cloud, and equally, DevOps, there is invariably going to be conflict.
