By Chris Puckett, TechRepublic EditorAtomizer was the first cloud-based compute platform to launch in 2018, offering a blazing-fast, fully-featured, and cheap, yet powerful compute environment.
Its cloud-ready, scalable, and powerful compute platform makes it a natural fit for the fast-growing cloud computing market, and it’s a great fit for big data analytics and big data-driven business applications.
But the platform also offers a lot of potential for enterprise use, as it has a strong business ecosystem and a robust set of tools that are easy to integrate with existing systems.
The company’s first customer for this year was AT&T, who recently acquired a 3.5 percent stake in Atomizer for an undisclosed amount.
AT&t is also building a new AWS-based cloud-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for data center workloads, and Atomizer is expected to be part of that platform.
Atomizer has a huge user base, and its platform is already used in many industries, including healthcare, healthcare consulting, and retail.
Its latest milestone is the 4k21 AWS build on AWS (formerly known as AWS Compute Engine), which is an upgrade of Atomizer’s previous 3.4k build on EC2, which launched in 2018.
This is the first time a 4k build has been deployed at AWS.AT&T purchased a significant portion of Atomizers 3.2k build in 2017, with plans to continue growing Atomizer in 2020.
Atomizers latest 4k11 build, which was announced in March, was targeted at healthcare customers.
At&t was able to deploy this build because of the availability of an internal 4k compute node on Atomizers compute cluster.
As a result of this AWS upgrade, Atomizers 2.0, Atomizer 3.0 and Atomizers 4.0 will be the only 2k builds in the company’s 3.x series of servers.
Atomizes 2.2 and 4.1 will also remain in the 2.x family.
Atomize 4.3 is a standalone build that was not part of this upgrade.AT & T plans to leverage Atomizers AWS cluster to support new and upcoming AWS customers and applications.
The company also plans to deploy Atomizers existing AWS customers’ existing AWS compute nodes on the 4.x stack.
The 4k AWS build will support the 2-way communication protocol for cloud-native applications.
AWS’ new cloud-oriented architecture allows applications to use the same data center as they do in the cloud, meaning applications can be written and run from the cloud without having to deploy or configure any additional infrastructure.
Amazon S3, an AWS storage platform, will be used for this deployment.
Amazon’s AWS compute platform supports both 2- and 4-way communications, and can support multiple virtual and physical machines.
The AWS stack can handle virtual machines with multiple cores, and multiple physical machines in parallel.
As of the time of this writing, AWS does not have any specific plans for the AWS 4k-based stack.
