More Enterprise Software Vendors Get ‘All In” with AWS

Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), today announced that four new enterprise software vendors are now “all in” on the Amazon cloud.
The new companies choosing AWS for the core infrastructure platform backing their Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings include: MicroStrategy, Software AG, TIBCO and Onshape. Software AG, a German software vendor, announced last month that it was moving its entire cloud portfolio over to AWS.
Terry Wise, AWS executive, stated that cloud computing is becoming the norm in IT. “Companies expect software products and applications to be accessible in the cloud in a way that is secure, always accessible, and instantly accessible from anywhere around the globe.” ISVs need a cloud platform that supports their current and future solutions.
AWS claims it provides infrastructure in the cloud to help software vendors focus on innovative customer solutions, rather than managing compute, storage, analytics, and application deployment services.
AWS stated that the cloud is the preferred method to deliver enterprise IT solutions to customers all over the world because it offers a level security, availability, and global accessibility that is hard to replicate in traditional IT environments. AWS cloud allows technology partners to leverage AWS’s global scale and broad platform capabilities to quickly innovate and meet the needs of enterprise customers all over the globe by building their solutions on it.
This news is from the AWS Summit in San Francisco.

Multicloud Storage Service Spans AWS Microsoft Azure Nimble Storage Inc. has today launched a beta offering that claims to be the only enterprise-grade multicloud block store service for Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), and Microsoft Azure public cloud. The product is called Nimble Cloud Volumes, and its enterprise-grade availability as well as data services can be used to help organizations move new types enterprise apps to the cloud. Nimble Storage believes that the first wave cloud apps will be mostly content-centric, native Web and mobile apps. They lack enterprise-friendly features like data durability and data services such as snapshots, and the ability to share the same volumes with multiple hosts. The next wave of cloud applications comprises traditional transactional-centric workloads — like transactional databases — moving to the public cloud space, with stringent storage requirements. The company stated that NCV flash-based storage could provide enterprise functionality, opening up new frontiers. It also offers other benefits, such as the elimination of cloud vendor lock-in, better data reliability, and uninterrupted data access. Ajay Singh, a senior executive at AWS, stated that the NCV service delivers flash storage volumes or block storage to AWS EC2 instances and Azure Virtual machines. It offers significant advantages over native cloud block storage services such as Amazon EBS and Azure Disk Volumes. The company highlighted the following three main benefits of the new NCV service:

Data mobility between public clouds or on-premises datacenters is easy without large data egress fees. Global visibility and predictive analytics allow for information such as usage history,…
