GreenButton Releases Updated Software Development Kit and
New REST API


Managing Big Compute Workloads in the Cloud Just Got Easier


SAN JOSE, CALIF.


APRIL
30
, 2013



GreenButton
™, the
leading provider of
compute intensive and integrated on
-
demand cloud solutions, today announced

the
availability of its new

and improved

software development kit (SDK). The
GreenButton SDK make
s

it easier for developers to customize and extend the power
of
GreenButton’s Cloud Fabric platf
orm,
to cloud
-
enabl
e

high

performance
computing (HPC)
, c
loud

bursting

and big data

workloads
.



"
There is
a
tend
ency

to
grossly underestimate the effort involve
d in developing and
commercializing cloud projects
,

said Dave Fellows, CTO for GreenButton.

Our
goal
here
is to empower developers and provide a low
-
risk and minimum ef
fort
entry point to
leverage
c
loud

computing resources for
scale out workloads
.

This is
the easiest way to get Big Compute workloads running on multiple clouds.
"


“I'd recommend
the
GreenButton
software development kit
to other developers that
have targeted HPC workloads
,” said Sandy Bugai,

Senior Software Engineer at
Bentley Systems
.


T
he API was very easy to use.”


The
new
SDK
gives
developers the ability to specify how their applications or
workloads should scale in the cloud

and i
ncludes simpler abstractions for enabling
Big Comput
e workloads and Big Data to run in the cloud
.
The

simple process
typically takes a few hours to get something running in the cloud
,

scaling across
thousands of cores
.
In addition, the SDK
can

be used by system i
ntegrat
ion

partners to cloud
-
enable their customers

-

i
t’s a very unique way of defining any
w
orkload to run in the cloud.


It

is
also integrated into
familiar
developer
environment
s

such as Visual Studio.


GreenButton’s SDK is

built on a fully
documented REST API

and include
s

documentation, code samples

on
GitHub
, resources and tools to help developers
build on the
Cloud Fabric

platform. Benefits include:




White

labeled offering:
Software Vendors can
rapidly

cloud
-
enable their
applications
-

w
ithout having to port the entire application to the cloud
-

and
deliver a white labeled capability to their users.

Supported
cloud platforms include Windows Azure, Amazon Web Services, VMware
vCloud and OpenStack.

GreenButton SDK Gets Great Results


In the beta phase, a

Fortune 500

manufacturer enabled one

of their complex
simulations
to run on the cloud

in two

days. This workload took three

hours to run
on 156 cores with their legacy implementation

and couldn’t scale beyond due to a
database bottleneck
. With GreenButton it was run in 10 minutes on 1100 cores

and
took advantage of GreenButton CloudSync
to rapidly synchronize

their
relational
data to
highly
scalable

cloud

storage

and insert the resulting outputs
.
