451 Research Says the Cloud Enabler’s Technologies are ‘Radical’ & ‘Far-Reaching'
Sep. 30, 2013: Canadian start-up Cloud
Dynamics has developed and offers technologies
that are “radical” in nature and make the company stand out among its peers in
the cloud technology world, says 451
Research, one of the world's largest analyst firms.
report the New York-based firm, which focuses on emergent technologies and
start-ups, points out the fact that Cloud Dynamics provides next generation
integration of not just hardware and software, but also of IT and power (heat
extraction and cooling). "The
integration of power distribution and cooling is a real differentiator, and
ahead of the general curve. Many will want to take a look," the report
Research, which also owns the Uptime Institute, says further that while Cloud
Dynamics has developed from scratch a “broad” technology platform -- including
its patent-pending ultra-efficient green heat-exchange technology (ecoHX), the
adaptive cooling system (ecoCool) and the Cloud Data Center Operating System
(cDOS) – the company emphasizes on seamless integration with other key cloud
technologies -- such as CloudStack and OpenStack -- that currently dominate the
sector. “One aspect we do like is the combination of support for legacy apps
alongside the newer apps more commonly associated with public cloud
deployments,” the report says.
integration technologies help Cloud Dynamics to offer its partners turnkey or
customized solutions that cut their data center power costs by as much as
90-percent, and increase data center rack density by ten times.
Dynamics has multiple pending patents around its core technologies.
key technologies include:
(Eco Data Center): The ecoDC is a disruptive innovation from Cloud Dynamics,
featuring its proprietary ultra-high density heat exchanging technology (ecoHX)
and adaptive ultra-efficient Cloud Data Center Cooling System (ecoCool).
ecoDC’s 35kW (10 tons) per cabinet heat -extraction capacity is ten times more than
that of a typical legacy data center, and its Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE)
of less than 1.1 is much lower than the industry average of around 1.9 (Uptime
Institute, 2012), which converts into cost and other savings for clients by as
much as fifty percent.
(Cloud Resource Unit): CRU is the currency of the cloud sector, just as the
watt is for the electricity sector. It is the weighted summation of all the
disparate components that go into a cloud data center – network, computing,
storage, power, facilities, human resources, etc. – and provides CIOs and CFOs
with a standard, single, dimensionless unit to cost and budget their cloud
resources. Managers can use the same tools and techniques used in
financial management for cloud resource management, control and budgeting
Dynamics was founded by three entrepreneurs:
Ratnam, P.Eng. (CEO): Ratnam is a seasoned entrepreneur with more than 20 years
of experience in information technology (IT) modernization, infrastructure,
data center, and technical services and support. Before starting Cloud Dynamics
Inc. He founded four successful technology companies, including iVedha Inc., a
systems integrator with approximately $20 million in annual revenues. Ratnam
also serves as a board member of many private and publicly traded companies.
Vijai Karthigesu, MBA,
P.Eng. (COO): Karthigesu has more than 15 years of experience in large IT
infrastructure architecture, design and operations in the public and private
sectors. He was also the founder of two successful IT firms, including
SpectraVoice, a pioneer in Canadian-VOIP industry.
Mirza Kamaludeen, PhD, P.Eng. (CTO): Dr. Kamaludeen is an innovator, author and
entrepreneur with more than 15 years of experience in IT and data center
infrastructure design, analytics and implementation, and held senior positions
in the Ontario Government. He is the architect of the ecoDC and the CRU.
