SL Corporation and CloudTran to Provide Joint Solution to Keep an Eye on How Corporate Data is Stored and Accessed In the Cloud
Extensive monitoring capabilities will help to enable business decisions that reduce operating costs
Corte Madera, CA - September 30, 2011 - SL Corporation, a leading provider of Application Performance Monitoring and middleware monitoring solutions, and CloudTran, a provider of software that enables corporations to leverage Cloud Computing technology for cost-effective data processing, today announced that the two companies have agreed to develop a joint solution to monitor the effectiveness of data placement in public, private and hybrid cloud-computing environments. Such monitoring will help mutual customers to make better decisions about data placement and workloads, and can dramatically reduce the cost of operating in Cloud Computing environments.
Until now, it has been difficult for many corporations to take advantage of Cloud Computing due to concerns of security and control over important corporate data. SL and CloudTran seek to address such concerns through a joint solution that gives companies the visibility necessary to ensure data is reliably stored and located for optimal cost savings and control.
"RTView's light footprint and ability to involve all necessary data make the platform uniquely suited for component-oriented application monitoring in the cloud, said Tom Lubinski, Founder and CEO of SL Corporation. "The monitoring of CloudTran's offering is a natural extension to our highly regarded monitoring solution for Oracle Coherence, and we expect it will deliver great value to our mutual customers.
"Corporations that use Cloud Computing technology must be able to monitor and control the location of sensitive corporate data, said Tom Henn, CEO and President, CloudTran. "The combined CloudTran/SL solution will make it possible to distribute data throughout the world while maintaining a close watch over the transactions that access that data and the systems that house it.
"Cloud Computing allows an application to use the bundled computational power of many, low-cost computers to perform its work, rather than requiring a single, large and expensive mainframe computer. This has the potential to drive lower capital and operating costs, and improved bottom-line profit for large enterprises.
