All things IT are moving to the cloud, but not always to the ?public cloud? according to Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, which today is announcing a new Private Cloud Practice created to support premises-based, fully-customized cloud solutions. While competitive, semi-private cloud solutions offer the appearance of security and control, Logicalis Private Cloud solutions are tailored specifically for each customer?s environment and computing needs and the customer keeps control of all of the IT assets at the data center of their choosing. The company has a well-established history providing managed services, data center services and a variety of cloud solutions. It was recently named a ?Top 100 Cloud Service Provider? by industry publication Talkin? Cloud and a ?Top 500 Solution Provider? by UBM Channel. The new practice will help organizations that are seeking the flexibility and expansion capabilities of cloud computing, with the security and access provided by a premises-based data center.
?For many organizations, cloud computing offers game-changing strategies necessary to increase business agility, add flexibility and mitigate risk. We help clients define and design a private cloud solution that specifically addresses the business problems they are trying to resolve. This allows IT staffs to refocus on the highest value activities and provide targeted services to their organizations,? says Kevin Gruneisen, vice president of data center solutions for Logicalis.
The private cloud solutions from Logicalis are based on the company?s consultative approach. These solutions have been designed to enable organizations to expand on the value of a virtualized infrastructure. By improving processes through automation, cloud technologies provide agility, faster time to market and improved total cost of ownership.
Industry analysts agree with the direction Logicalis has taken.
?Our recent cloud services survey shows that when it comes to cloud, whether private or public, CIOs want to work with providers that can demonstrate expertise in security, compliance and management. Customers also want to work with providers that foster and maintain high levels of trust between them and their enterprise clients,? says John Madden, principal analyst, Ovum, and co-author with Senior Analyst Ian Brown of Ovum?s Cloud Services Business Trends Survey.

NextComputing, a leading provider of portable workstations and dense, small-footprint servers, announces the latest addition to its Radius series of mobile computers, the Radius EX-B. Based on NextComputing?s Radius EX all-in-one portable workstation, the Radius EX-B is NextComputing?s first portable system to feature an integrated battery for total mobility.
Watch a video about the Radius EX-B.
Users in industries like military intelligence, oil and gas exploration, digital video production, and network testing need high-performance hardware for their demanding applications. Features like full-powered CPUs, high-end 3D graphics, fast RAID storage, and PCI expansion slots are often required for these mission-critical applications. But when trying to run these applications in the field, these users are often forced to choose between large, non-mobile systems like a tower or rack-mount server that gives them the performance they require, or scale their application down to run on a laptop for mobility.
NextComputing solves this problem with the Radius EX-B. Like all NextComputing portables, the briefcase-like Radius EX-B is designed to offer true workstation and server performance in a compact, all-in-one package that is easy to transport and set up. But unlike other NextComputing portables, the Radius EX-B can run completely un-tethered, without being plugged into a power source. This feature is entirely unique in a desktop-class system and offers a number of advantages including:
The ability to transport the system from room to room within a facility without powering down
Keeping the unit running continuously in the event of a power failure
Running the system in a remote environment where power is intermittent or unreliable such as military base station or trailer
The Radius EX-B features:
320W power supply with removable Lithium-ion battery pack, able to power the system at full-load for 2 hours, longer when idle
Built-in 17-inch widescreen, high-resolution (1920×1200) LCD monitor
Workstation-class 2nd Generation Intel

NextComputing, a leading provider of portable workstations and dense, small-footprint servers, announces a new rugged portable server solution for forward deployed military environments or any remote location that requires enterprise computing resources. The Vigor EX-B is NextComputing?s first completely battery-powered and fully mobile rugged server, able to run on its own internal power for up to 4 hours. Designed to support tactical operations centers and other mission-critical environments, the Vigor EX-B is the ideal platform for delivering virtualized ?local cloud? computing services to multiple users in a remote setting.
As cloud computing continues to grow across multiple industries, off-site operations are often seeking solutions to provide these types of services in the field. While traditional rackmount servers can do the job, these systems and their associated rack infrastructure ? including power conditioning, switching, KVM, etc. ? are often impractical in a tactical environment where size, weight, power and mobility are important factors. Electrical power is usually unreliable in these situations, and a typical UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) can only run a server for a very short period of time. And though laptops are usually the preferred platform for client systems, these computers are not up to the task of running multiple concurrent applications and operating systems with virtualization ? a requirement for deploying cloud services.
NextComputing solves these problems with the Vigor EX-B. Most importantly, the system is designed from the ground up for portability, reliability, and performance. The server?s rugged anodized aluminum chassis with both interior and exterior rubber shock absorbers insures that the system will hold up to the rigors of field use. With its integrated Lithium-ion battery, the unit is able to run for up to 4 hours on battery power alone ? unheard of in a server. The Vigor EX-B is also based on Intel
