From a cave to the cloud

Using tools has made life easier for people from the dawn of ages. It may have started with the invention of hammers and spears but we’ve come a long way since. The cloud is part of this constant move for innovation to make our life easier. This started with Infrastructure as a Service, and now evolves to Platform as a Service.

A common misconception is that moving to the cloud will magically make your application cloud ready, resolving all issues around reliability and manageability. However, cloud is not a magic bullet. Cloud it is a tool to help you achieve higher reliability with less effort.

A good cloud provider provides cloud services with many built-in redundancies. No single point of hardware failure, be it a compute node, hard-drive failure or network failure affect the performance of a cloud hosted system. However, this doesn’t address the most common cause of failure: software. Not only that, it also ignores the true benefits of cloud computing.

Customer spotlight: Mirus Australia provides cloud based analytics

Yesterday, ComputerWorld & TechWorld published an interesting case on the use of Cloud Computing using the example of a customer of ours, Mirus Australia.

Mirus Australia helps residential aged care organisations provide the best care for their residents through improved funding and clearer operational insights. Mirus Metrics being available in the Cloud is a business project not technology deployment for their customers. The barrier to entry for care facilities is very low. A cloud based solution brings the cost of utilising business intelligence and analytics down so it is accessible to many many more facilities

By moving Mirus Metrics to CloudCentral’s cloud platform, Mirus Australia can focus on providing innovative solutions to care providers rather than managing infrastructure. Aged care providers can focus on optimising aged care rather than managing technology. Mirus Metrics allows customers to effectively manage, prioritise and track residents ACFI assessments.

We recently announced our official partnership with Microstrategy. The combination of MicroStrategy’s Analytics Platform, which provides a range of enterprise reporting, predictive analytics and management dashboards, with the performance, dependability and strength of CloudCentral’s Cloud Services, now makes analytics available to companies of all sizes, anywhere, anytime. The article on ComputerWorld is an excellent example of the benefits created by the cloud and our strategic partnerships.

CloudCentral is proud to announce that we are the major event sponsor for this month’s AIIA Canberra Managers Forum featuring Bruce Thompson, Chief Knowledge Officer of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

Our sponsorship of this months event has major significance as CloudCentral is set to announce several new service offerings focussed on Big Data, Analytics and Open Data.

Big Data, Analytics and Open Data are obviously highly topical subjects right now, with the Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) recently releasing their Big Data issues paper.

CloudCentral is looking to address the current gaping hole for Big Data, Analytics and Open Data cloud solutions in the Australian marketplace. We look forward to releasing more details on our strategies and services over the coming weeks.
