anyscale adds $40m to bring its ray-based distributed computing tech to the enterprise masses

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The world of distributed computing took on a new profile this year when Folding@home, a 20-year-old distributed computing project, found itself picking up thousands of new volunteers to help Covid-19 researchers generate more computing power to fold proteins and run other calculations needed for screening potential drug compounds to fight the novel coronavirus. Today, a startup that is also tapping the potential and opportunity in distributed computing is announcing a round of growth funding to continue its own work.
Anyscale, a startup founded by a team out of UC Berkeley who created the Ray open-source Python framework for running distributed computing projects, has raised $40 million.
It plans to use the capital to continue developing Anyscale, a platform built on Ray that will make Ray usable not just by high-level developers and computing specialists, but any technical people who are looking to run projects that require large amounts of computing power.
Ion Stoica, Anyscale’s executive chairman who co-founded the company with Robert Nishihara, Philipp Moritz and Berkeley professor Michael I. Jordan, said in an interview that the company is tapping into a moment spurred not just by the events of 2020 but by the bigger demand from companies — spurred by …

Anyscale raises $40 million to launch a managed service for distributed computing workloads

anyscale raises $40 million to launch a managed service for distributed computing workloads

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Anyscale, the startup behind the open source project Ray, today closed a $40 million funding round. A company spokesperson says the capital will be put toward growing the ecosystem around Ray and promoting Anyscale’s first commercial offering, a managed Ray platform.
The types of distributed computing involved with AI and machine learning are often fraught with challenges. That’s because distributed systems vary in terms of how difficult they are to implement. Engineers working with distributed computing must test for all aspects of device and network failure, considering all the permutations of failures and bugs that a distributed system can encounter.
That’s where Anyscale comes in. Its solution enables developers to share and run distributed projects using a no-frills set of tools. The company was founded by the creators of Ray, which was developed at the University of California, Berkeley’s RISELab, a five-year intensive computer science research lab.
Ion Stoica, a professor of computer science at UC Berkeley, where he co-directs the RISELab, founded Anyscale last June with CEO Robert Nishihara, CTO Philipp Moritz, and UC Berkeley professor Michael Jordan. Stoica played a significant role in the creation of Apache Spark and other big data frameworks and tools. …

He brings more than 20 years of experience helping companies leverage technology for strategic advantage, as well as leading technology organisations as they scale for growth. Before joining Alteryx, Knudsen was a partner with Credera, focused on technology and business strategy. What was your first job? My first IT job was doing basic Windows NT administration in support of a ten-person development team. Not only did I know zero about things like DNS, DHCP, and WINS but this is 1995 when Windows NT was emerging so not a lot was available in terms of education but that’s what made it so interesting. Luckily the team I was on was really supportive of my learning which not only encourage me to learn and explore but also tolerated my mistakes which were plenty.Did you always want to work in IT? Like many young adults in college I wasn’t too sure about what I specifically wanted to do but after attending an information session with Anderson …

everything’s distributed: how edjx is rethinking computing – stacey on iot | internet of things news and analysis

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Distributed computing has been high on my list of useful technologies for almost two decades. And now that everyone is getting excited about the edge, the pendulum is swinging back to some form of distributed computing network that will work in conjunction with the cloud.To be fair, I get excited about distributed computing every few years because to me it seems like the only scalable option for providing computing or networking capabilities or applications to millions of people or devices. But every time I get excited about distributed technology I’m proven wrong. So it’s with a bit of hesitation that I offer up EDJX, a startup out of Raleigh, N.C., that’s building a business connecting other peoples’ servers and infrastructure as a repository for edge processing and data storage.

2021 Trends in Cloud Computing: The Omni Present Multi-Cloud Phenomenon

2021 trends in cloud computing: the omni present multi-cloud phenomenon

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Cloud computing has become as indispensable to the data ecosystem as it has to consumers’ lives. Its collaboration capabilities (eminently evinced in telemedicine, online banking, and e-commerce) epitomize the remote interactivity of a big data landscape shifting, inexorably perhaps, towards the edge.

Less than a year ago, this decentralized transaction capacity was a matter of competitive advantage. Today, it’s become the cloud’s cardinal point of distinction as its architecture keeps society itself operational—and connected.

As such, it’s imperative organizations optimize its traditional advantages of reduced cost, scalability, and ubiquity of access with a low latent experience. Although numerous developments have arisen to reinforce these boons, their underlying motif is the multi-cloud phenomenon surging to the top of progressive organizations’ priorities.









“If you look at Gartner, they say 80 percent of customers will be using multi-cloud in the near future because each of the cloud service providers have different strengths in their technology stack,” reflected Denodo CMO Ravi Shankar.

Multi-cloud deployments are central to cloud computing for numerous reasons, the most immediate of which may be an expansion of viable public clouds. Although Google (prized for its Artificial Intelligence utility), Azure (lauded for workplace applications), and AWS (desired …

Conducting real-time utility equipment thermal monitoring using AWS IoT services

conducting real-time utility equipment thermal monitoring using aws iot services

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Delta Thermal is an industrial Internet of Things (IoT) company focused on one thing: We keep stuff from blowing up. We do this by finding hotspots in equipment before it’s too late to fix them.

The hotspots we are focused on today are found in electricity transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment. In the electrical grid that delivers electricity from a power plant to an industrial consumer. There are many places we could help, but we focus on substations and downstream switchgear cabinets that distribute electricity directly to industrial consumers.

Delta Thermal’s ThermalSafe cameras offer an economical, secure, and scalable solution to detect maintenance issues with T&D gear in substations thus enabling reliability of systems for utilities and savings in replacement costs. Our Mosaic product extends this capability into the switchgear that is essential for delivering electricity to your facility. Mosaic is a small IoT device about the size of a hockey puck. It uses a small thermal camera to continuously collect heat data and then analyze that data in the AWS cloud. It’s called Mosaic because it enables using many small pictures to get the big picture.

TriggerMesh Allies With Rancher Labs to Simplify AWS Integration – Container Journal

triggermesh allies with rancher labs to simplify aws integration – container journal

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

TriggerMesh has partnered with Rancher Labs to make it easier to invoke Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud services from within a Kubernetes environment.
Via a TriggerMesh cloud service based on Knative, open source middleware for accessing serverless computing frameworks developed by Google, workloads running on AWS or a local Kubernetes cluster can be triggered bi-directionally. That capability has now been extended to include Rancher Kubernetes Engine.

TriggerMesh CEO Mark Hinkle says as hybrid cloud computing evolves IT teams need to mash up services residing on the AWS cloud and on-premises IT environments using an event-driven platform. TriggerMesh accomplishes that goal by extending Knative to support proprietary AWS services.
Event-driven IT architectures inside and out of the cloud are becoming the foundation on which digital business transformation initiatives depend. Most digital business processes not only depend on launch analytics workloads in real-time, but they also need to be able to access resources that can dynamically scale up and down as needed. Rather than build and deploy all the code required to drive those processes within an application, it becomes easier to employ a serverless computing framework to invoke them as needed. Legacy applications based on batch-oriented processes can’t provide the …
