Manjrasoft Pty. Ltd.: Having “World-first” Cloud Application Platform

In the hunt for a superior speed and performance for IT resources, higher efficient utilization of IT resources, at the same time lower IT infrastructure costs, lower IT operational costs, additionally increased capacity to handle peaks in demand for IT resources, like web applications and services, enterprises are longing for the best enterprise cloud computing platform in the industry.Also, the longing of the enterprises for a safer computing environment, through the use of virtual servers, to reduce the threat of an on site intruder attack on the physical storage devices within a data center is taking them towards cloud computing.

Here comes the best solution available in the market for cloud computing and that is Manjrasoft Pty Ltd. Founded in 2008 by veteran IT practitioners who have dedicated their careers to Utility, Distributed and Cloud Computing, Manjrasoft is an innovative provider of choice for application acceleration services and solutions over Cloud.

 Manjrasoft’s Flagship product ‘Aneka’

Having Patented in US, Manjrasoft’s flagship product, Aneka Technology is driving the company’s business. Aneka is the “world-first” Cloud Application Platform supporting multiple programming models such as Task, Thread, and Map Reduce and tools for rapid development of applications, seamless integration of multiple distributed computing resources, including private and public Clouds, and elastic scaling of applications on multiple Clouds depending on customers’ Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, which are part of SLA (Service Level Agreement) in market-based Cloud computing environments.

Manjrasoft assists its clients in the creation of enterprise Clouds using their Aneka Cloud Application Platform and train the trainers on foundations of Cloud computing and application programming. They also guide their clients (educational institutions) in the formulation of content for both theoretical and laboratory subjects so that next-generation software engineers they produced as fully grounded in theory and practice.

Dr. Rajkumar Buyya, a Veteran IT practitioner

A globally recognized thought leader in the field of Distribution and Cloud Computing, Dr. Rajkumar Buyya is the Founder and CEO of Manjrasoft. Having immense industry knowledge and strong personal links to key industry players (such as Microsoft,CA and IBM) in the research and product Dr.Rajkumar architecture/management domains, started Manjrasoft with a zeal to do something extraordinary in Utility, Distributed and Cloud Computing.

Dr.Rajkumar has many accolades to his name, such as“2009 IEEE Medal for Excellence in Scalable Computing” for pioneering distributed and Cloud computing utility models to deliver business solutions. He has authored over 525 publications and seven textbooks, including “Mastering Cloud Computing” published by McGraw Hill, China Machine  Press, and Morgan Kaufmann for Indian, Chinese and international markets respectively.

His efforts have resulted in numerous awards such as Software Technologies for Grid and Cloud computing developed under Dr.Rajkumar’s leadership have gained rapid acceptance and are in use at several academic institutions and commercial enterprises in 40 countries around the world. He is one of the highly cited authors in computer science and software engineering worldwide. Recently, Dr.Rajkumar has been recognized as“2016 Web of Science Highly Cited Researcher” by Thomson Reuters.

Dr.Rajkumar has been working on the development of software systems for utility-oriented Internet computing systems such as Grids and Clouds for over 15 years. Development of applications and management of resources continues to be challenging in these utility-oriented computing systems. Existing technologies,were primarily supporting a single programming model for application development and their deployment on a single platform i.e., either Windows or Unix-class operating environments. To overcome this bottleneck, Dr.Rajkumar and the team created an innovative software platform, Aneka, which supports multiple programming models for rapid creation of applications and their deployment over multiple computing environments in a seamless manner.

Talking about his wonderful journey, Dr.Rajkumar says, “A rapid pace of changes in computing world can be quite challenging. Fortunately, we are able to manage them well as we took extensibility and elasticity as our two core design requirements right from the start.”

He further adds, “A persistent effort in good and difficult times and having a firm aim in creating outcomes that matter the most is the secret of success.”

Golden Advice for Young Entrepreneurs by Dr. Rajkumar

“The era of Cloud computing is an excellent time for young entrepreneurs to build solutions and application services and offer them to customers world-wide with a minimal investment. If you have an idea for solving problems of Gen Y consumers, you need to move quickly and they may not wait for you too long! So, Be persistent and have a clear view of users of your solutions.”

Focus on the Future

As Manjrasoft Cloud solutions are created with extensibility and elasticity as first class design parameters right from the start, they will be looking into supporting the rapid creation of the emerging Internet of Things (IoT) applications and their seamless deployment on edge and public Clouds.

Dr.Rajkumar adds, “In the beginning Manjrasoft’s primary strategy for customer acquisition was direct-marketing. We have been able to successfully demonstrate our value proposition to the customers and attract many high-profile customers. Now with our proven track record and value proposition, we have appointed many Channel partners across India and some in China as part of our growth strategy.”
