Security Software Giant F-Secure Selects Eucalyptus Systems for Private and Hybrid Cloud

F-Secure Expands Cloud Initiatives With Leading Open Source AWS-Compatible Cloud Solution

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/14 -- Eucalyptus Systems, the leading provider of open source software for building AWS-compatible private and hybrid clouds, today announced F-Secure, the security software expert, has chosen Eucalyptus as their corporate wide on-premise cloud platform to host production, development and testing, and quality assurance (QA) workloads. F-Secure is leveraging Eucalyptus' AWS-compatibility to scale to the public cloud as needed.

With over 25 years expertise, F-Secure is the foremost trusted provider for personal and business security in over 20 countries around the world. Millions turn to F-Secure to protect themselves against security threats and vulnerabilities introduced through social media and mobile devices. To ensure the company continually provides the best in security solutions and personal content management, F-Secure needed an on-premise cloud solution that would enable them to rapidly innovate. To meet F-Secure's growing needs, the company chose Eucalyptus as its private and hybrid cloud solution after detailed 'head-to-head' technical trials of leading on-premise IaaS platforms.

"F-Secure leverages Eucalyptus to power the research, development, and production of the company's security and content management software which serves millions of users around the world," said Markus Melin, Director, Operations, Content Cloud at F-Secure. "Eucalyptus gives us the flexibility to scale our cloud resources so we can quickly and cost-effectively meet business demands from operations in over 20 countries. With around the clock access to highly secure cloud resources, our teams can focus on what they do best -- delivering software that protects and simplifies the digital lives of consumers and businesses."

F-Secure needed a private cloud solution that could be quickly deployed in various geographical locations around the world. More specifically, they were seeking a solution that utilized their existing infrastructure and security policies and complemented their current public cloud strategy. F-Secure evaluated multiple solutions to find out that only Eucalyptus provided them a solution to fit their immediate and growing private cloud needs and supported hybrid functionalities to scale production workloads to AWS.

Game-changing functionalities for F-Secure were:

  • Auto Scaling - Allows workloads to automatically scale to meet performance and SLA requirements using EC2 and Cloudwatch compatible APIs and tools.
  • Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) - Distributes incoming application traffic across multiple Eucalyptus instances, providing greater fault tolerance for applications.
  • Auto Healing - Maintains application workload capacity, even as underlying server resources fail, without impacting the application end user experience.
  • Custom Network Isolation - Eucalyptus Systems was able to quickly respond to customer requirements and deliver immediately-needed networking functionality.

"F-Secure's adoption of Eucalyptus will enable them to rapidly develop innovative products that protect their users regardless of device or location," said Marten Mickos, CEO of Eucalyptus. "This is the beginning of a great partnership where Eucalyptus and F-Secure can make sure that the digital world is a safe and useful place for everyone."

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace.
WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Graham Holt, Executive Vice President of Daitan Group, will cover implementation examples that have enabled ea...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
