ViaSat Acquires LonoCloud
LonoCloud is a new "elastic" application platform that integrates live‐live fault tolerance, scalability and security into its policy system, accelerating the migration of mission‐critical applications to the cloud. Moreover, LonoCloud extends the intelligence of this hybrid public/private cloud fabric into a federation of nodes enabling specific policies to control message security, scale, availability, and performance of the distributed application components.
The LonoCloud OS (PaaS+) is evolutionary, driving broader adoption of distributed architecture SOA applications and enabling the cloud benefits of highly parallel, federated processing. The LonoCloud architecture is a mesh network with no single point of failure due to the algorithms built into the“fabric” of federated nodes. For mission‐critical applications including remote mobile devices like health sensors, LonoCloud enables a high degree of fault tolerance through triple modular redundancy. Your application never goes down or skips a beat during a transaction.
LonoCloud has assembled a veritable think tank of cloud and cyber‐security innovators with decades of combined experience in cloud computing. In addition, the management team has experience in successful startups and fortune 500 companies. The LonoCloud Platform is built with Clojure, a lightweight and dynamic programming language that targets the Java Virtual Machine. The LonoCloud OS PaaS+ is architected specifically for the InterCloud model and Clojure offers simplicity and higher performance with superior parallel processing. LonoCloud has hired experts in this new language to optimize the efficiency of the LonoCloud software and APIs. Moreover, these engineers are encouraged to spend company time giving back to the community by developing open source Clojure capabilities.
