Google Launches Cloud DataFlow, a Cloud Computing Based Data Pipeline Management Tool

Cloud DataFlow in Beta Version would be used to manage the large data pipelines of different social media activities or other cloud computing based feeds, and data flows from multiple online platforms.

GoogleThis was announced by Google Corporation during its annual conference for the developers at the last weekend that, it has started some new initiatives for the users of the cloud computing services of the company to enhance their experience. These initiatives includes many cloud computing based features and capabilities that can increase the satisfaction of the customers – the most important of them is the launch of Cloud DataFlow in Beta Version for managing the cloud computing based data pipelines.

According to the official announcement made by the company, the newly introduced tool would help users manage the large and most complex data pipelines with the help of the powerful drill down options of the tool. The Cloud DataFlow tool is capable of handling both the streaming as well as the batch of data to process and manage according to the requirements of the user.

While talking about the technical features of this cloud computing based tool of the company, the Head of the Product Marketing at Google Cloud Platform, Mr. Brian Goldfarb explained that the tool uses the same API for both the complex as well as the simple pipelines, which enables the developers to concentrate on their development work on the data, and allowing the Cloud DataFlow to manage the data pipelines. This tool takes into account all conversation between different segments, and is capable to handle the traffic among the segments with the help of different logics, such as, aggregation by sliding window, parts of map, keys and others.

This tool is capable to produce the graphical presentation of the desire reports out of the large volume of data pipelines. This tool provides monitoring information of the cloud application, auto debugging feature, and service level metrics.

“Cloud Dataflow handles both batch and streaming data,” as pointed out by Brian. “Imagine analyzing millions of tweets posted during a worldwide event in real time. In one pipeline segment, you read the tweets. In the next segment you extract tags. In another segment, you classify tweets by sentiment (positive, negative, or other). In the next segment, you filter for keywords. And so on. Map/Reduce — an older paradigm for handling large data sets — doesn’t readily deal with such real-time data, and doesn’t easily apply to such long, complex pipelines” he added.

Joyent Cloud Computing Service Provider Company Appoints Scott Hammond as Its CEO

In the pursuit to strengthen the hybrid cloud computing based business, Joyent Inc, the provider of high performance cloud infrastructure hires Scott Hammond from Cisco Systems.

joyentOwing to the fact that hybrid cloud computing services are going to play a major role in the cloud computing based business in the near future, the Joyent cloud infrastructure and data service Provider Company hired one of the most suitable candidate for the top slot of its management. It was announced on June 25, 2014 by the company that it has hired Mr. Scott Hammond for the position of CEO to strengthen the hybrid cloud computing business in the near future.

The official statement further informed that Scott Hammond has joined as the CEO of the company to help company achieve the business targets in the domain of hybrid cloud computing service provisioning and infrastructure building.

While talking about the background of newly hired CEO of Joyent Company, it was informed that Scott comes from a diverse experience in the domain of cloud business. He was working as the Vice President of Strategy and Business Development in the Cloud and System Management Group of Cisco Systems. He served as the CEO of NewScale Inc, which was later acquired by the Cisco Systems, and he was appointed as the VP in Cisco System.

The expertise of Scott includes data center automation, cloud computing infrastructure business, successful development of startup companies, and many others.

Mr. Scott Hammond, while talking about his new responsibilities said, “Joyent has a massive market opportunity coming into the era of hybrid cloud adoption. The long tail of cloud computing kicked off in the enterprise and will multiply dramatically as large and midsize companies move to deploy applications written for the cloud, in the cloud. What we’re seeing now is essentially the next stage of hardware consolidation, where we’re going from a 10x return on server spend from virtualization, to even greater consolidation by bringing the economics of public cloud into the data center. Joyent’s ability to provide a consistent, high-performance technology stack for both public and private use gives the company a significant differentiator and advantage in a noisy market.”

One of the members of the board of directors of Joyent, Mr. Charles Beeler, while commenting about the appointment of new CEO of the company said, “Through his leadership, Scott has a history of accelerating growth and driving new sources of revenue for both proven and emerging companies. As the cloud industry matures towards a hybrid future, his vision aligns perfectly with Joyent’s centered around a new economy of datacenters and cloud services”.

MetaCloud Hires Scott Sanchez and Niki Acosta to Push Its Private Cloud Computing Offerings

Scott Sanchez and Niki Acosta, associated with the Rackspace, are well known names in the domain of OpenStack cloud computing – and, they joined Pasadena based MetaCloud.

metacloudIt was announced by the provider of managed cloud computing services, both the hybrid clouds and the private clouds based on the open source cloud computing platform OpenStack that, it has hired two OpenStack cloud evangelists of the Rackspace cloud computing firm – Scott Sanchez, and Niki Acosta to strengthen its OpenStack based private cloud computing services.

The company has also expressed its pleasure that it has snagged two well known resources of the OpenStack giant Rackspace. It will be very beneficial for the MetaCloud in enhancing their private cloud based services.

While talking about their positions and the responsibilities in the company, it was informed that Scott Sanchez has been appointed as vice president, Strategy of the company – while, Niki Acosta will be taking charge as director of evangelism MetaCloud Company headquartered in Pasadena, CA. Both of these positions of the company will be located at the new office at Austin, Texas.

The MetaCloud is focusing on the easing out of the implementation of the private and hybrid cloud services based on the OpenStack cloud platform, which has been very complex in nature to run and deploy in the companies that support this platform. By the induction of these two big names, the private cloud push for the company will be created. MetaCloud plans to implement the managed cloud model of private cloud business, which will be very helpful for the customers. This platform will remove the issues related to deployment and maintenance of the cloud services for the prospective customers.
