PROVO, Utah, Jan. 23 – Adaptive Computing, the largest provider of private cloud management and High-Performance Computing (HPC) workload management software, today announced it has been granted 12 new patents by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, raising its total number of patent grants to 27 – one of the largest private cloud patent portfolios in existence. As a result of this rapid cloud technology expansion, Adaptive Computing increased cloud software sales by 244 percent in 2012.
“The rate of innovation to acquire such a breadth and depth of patents is remarkable,” said Robert Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “The phenomenal cloud growth we’ve seen in 2012 can be attributed to being first-to-market in many core concepts, which enables us to provide a customized, differentiated private cloud solution with a higher level of efficiency and increased cost savings. Moab’s unmatched policy-based optimization allows businesses to move to the cloud cost effectively by reducing hardware and IT maintenance costs.”
The new patents, six of which are issued and six of which are allowed, encompass several policies that enable optimization of the cloud, including data management, energy consumption management, workload-aware power management, complete environment management, guarantees, reservations and billing. With priority date back as early as 2005, the patents validate Adaptive Computing's pioneering work in intelligent workload management.
Adaptive Computing’s new patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office include:
New patents allowed (which do not yet have an assigned number) from the United States Patent and Trademark Office include:
“The worldwide cloud systems management software market is now forecast to total $3.6 billion in 2016,” said Mary Johnston Turner, research vice president of Enterprise Systems Management Software for IDC. "As cloud applications and workloads become more mainstream and mission critical, customers will move beyond simple self service provisioning to prioritize policy-based management tools that can optimize resource utilization, power consumption, workload availability and end to end application performance."
Adaptive’s most recent private cloud patents, which were developed years before the technology took shape, uniquely position the company to meet these requirements as the market continues to grow.
“This ever-increasing patent portfolio is evidence of both our foresight and our efforts to push the private cloud space forward,” said David Jackson, Adaptive Computing’s CTO and founder, to whom the company’s patents are issued or allowed. “With these patents, we can deliver a more extensive set of business guarantees than any other solution.”
Adaptive Computing currently has more than 130 patent applications with both U.S. and foreign filings.
