Frost & Sullivan says Malaysian Enterprises Demonstrating Increasing Traction for Cloud Services

Posted by admin in Featured on February 26, 2011 with No Comments

A recent end-user study (Feb 2011) on Cloud Computing conducted by Frost & Sullivan reveals insights on the paradigm shift in the computing industry.

The study was conducted with 330 senior IT decision makers across  the Asia Pacific, 55 of which were from Malaysia. Here are the findings:

  • close to 30% of enterprises use some form of cloud computing
  • more than 64 percent of the survey respondents believe that Cloud Computing technology in any delivery form can help businesses reduce their infrastructure cost and lower capital expenditure investment compared to traditional IT management.
  • in terms of spending, 41 percent of respondents are likely to increase it in 2011 (no prior budget to consider cloud services earlier).
  • key concerns are still around security & privacy standards, quality of SLAs and pricing.

The research analyst indicated that,  “A growing number of enterprises in Malaysia are looking to move their applications and infrastructure into the Cloud. This is primarily being driven by their increasing awareness of the advantages of using ‘IT as a Service’ – the lower total cost of ownership, predictable costs and the ability to scale up or down depending on business needs.”

We at SKALI Cloud have contributed to that study ourselves, we have shared that most of our clients patterns and their business decision-making process, as well as their overall awareness on the benefits of adopting the cloud services. Malaysian enterprises realised that with SKALI Cloud’s offering, they now have another option to consider (instead of the traditional models).  Most understood the benefits, however they are wary of the complication of the move (new tools, new technology, new ways of doing work), and that is the reason why we are here locally in Malaysia to assist you with your cloud computing projects.

Call us, we show you how.

Role-Play Live Demo (14mins Video)

Posted by admin in Featured on February 17, 2011 with No Comments

Sharing with you the role-play live demo we had during our launch event recently.

Basically we tried to show a real live example of a person trying to setup a real server vs. a cloud server. Requirements of the servers came from clients, and we had to deliver it within a limited timeframe (within hours, not days). Then along the way, the client changes their requirements and we had to response within the same deadline.

Can you do that with a traditional server hardware?

Enjoy the video.

Give us a try to see how easy it is. Free trials available.

jClouds, a multi-cloud library now supports SKALI Cloud

Posted by admin in Featured on February 8, 2011 with No Comments

We are proud to announce that SKALI Cloud platform is now certified to work with jClouds – jClouds is a multi cloud framework which allows connection to multiple clouds such as Amazon, VMWare, Azure, and Rackspace. What is amazing is that jClouds provides portable abstractions for cloud specific features, thus allowing the application to move from one cloud vendor to the other with relative ease.

What does that really means?

This can get slightly technical: As you know, you can use SKALI Cloud API to programmatically instruct your cloud servers to either start, stop, delete, and do bunch of things. Now, if you are a software developer, and using many other cloud service providers, basically you need to learn each provider’s API in order for you to control stuff via your software codes.. right?

This is where the folks of jClouds (and a few others like libcloud, deltacloud, etc comes in). They have created their own libraries that talks to many other cloud providers out-there (amazon, gogrid, rackspace, etc), and people will just need to learn their libraries and use them to interact with many cloud server providers — without the need to know each individual provider’s APIs!!

Depending on your coding needs, jClouds is java-based (while libcloud is phyton-based). With the libraries, you can now have SKALI Cloud as one of your cloud server deployment option!

Go ahead to the jClouds website for details on how to fully use the libraries.

Let us know if you need further details.
