Count Japan's Fujitsu as among the big players who are taking Cloud Computing seriously; in the case of a new release, it's not as a platform provider or as a host, but as a technical supervisor. Its labs has produced what it calls "a technology" that promises "to detect system failures before they happen."
Predictive computing by another name, yes? No?
The company outlines a three-stage process to work its magic:
1. Detecting failures through analysis of system messages, by focusing on specific patterns generated just before previous failures occurred.
2. Detection of potential failures that do not generate messages. The Lab addresses the potential for human error here, by gathering and analyzing packets and minor changes on the packet level.
3. Narrowing down the causes of failure by making inferences "about the most likely areas that have generated" the signs of failure.
