    CloudMosa Firing Up Mobile Browsing Through The Cloud CloudMosa Firing Up Mobile Browsing Through The Cloud Document Transcript

    • Customer perspective CloudMosa Firing up mobile browsing through the cloud CloudMosa counts on a cloud-computing infrastructure powered by Dell™ PowerEdge™ microservers and Samsung® Green memory and solid-state drives to deliver a blazingly fast web experience for mobile users. W hen it comes to the web, speed is everything. But many mobile devices, held back by limited processing power and memory capacity, deliver a sluggish online experience. To solve this mobile web problem, CloudMosa, developer of the web browser Puffin, shifted the workload from mobile devices to cloud data centers running Dell PowerEdge C5220 microservers equipped with Samsung Green Memory. In In preparation for the launch of Puffin, CloudMosa tandem with Puffin, this offloading accelerates the performance of resource- and rented capacity from public cloud providers. This memory-hungry web applications on smartphones and tablets. approach minimized setup time, reduced initial Dr. Shioupyn Shen, founder and CEO of CloudMosa, recognized that many mobile device users regard interactive information retrieval and multimedia viewing through a web browser as fairly simple computing tasks. But, says Shen, investment requirements and allowed CloudMosa to bring its product to market quickly. As the number of Puffin users exploded, the “Web browsing is actually the most resource-intensive application on your mobile company’s cloud server fees escalated dramatically. device in terms of CPU and memory usage. When I looked at this situation, I said, Given the tight margins that come with a cloud- ‘I can fix this problem. I can put data centers on the cloud and use the data center based offering, controlling operational costs is one servers to accelerate web browsing.’” of the keys to business success. So CloudMosa built its own data centers, which are now home to more Unleashing the potential of the web than 1,000 servers. To rent that degree of computing As CloudMosa’s flagship product, the Puffin web browser is designed to channel capacity from a cloud service provider, CloudMosa the full web experience to smartphones, tablets and notebooks. By using the would pay about US$1 million each month — company’s cloud data centers to render web pages, the Puffin browser can compared to a one-time cost of about US$2 million achieve unparalleled page loading speeds. “Puffin is wicked fast,” Shen says. to build the data centers. “When people first use it, they can’t believe web browsing on a mobile device could be this fast.” 58 2013 Issue 03 | Dell.com/powersolutions The data centers host high-density Dell PowerEdge C5220 microservers. “This particular server allows us Reprinted from Dell Power Solutions, 2013 Issue 3.

    • Rapid resource retrieval To provide a scalable, highly efficient cloud-computing infrastructure that supports extremely fast mobile web experiences, CloudMosa deployed Dell PowerEdge microservers equipped with Samsung Green technology. Dell PowerEdge C5220 servers Designed for environments in which maximizing power efficiency and compute density is critical, Dell PowerEdge C5220 servers fit up to 12 server nodes in a 3U form factor. A shared power and cooling infrastructure in the PowerEdge C5000 chassis enhances energy efficiency and helps reduce operating costs. Samsung Green solid-state drives The solid-state drive (SSD) is a next-generation storage device that is designed to overcome the shortcomings of the mechanical parts in rotating media. As a result, SSDs provide many benefits over rotating media, including low latency, low power consumption, high reliability and high data integrity. When comparing I/Os per second (IOPS) per watt, the fourth-generation Samsung SM843 SSD is 1.8 times more efficient than the previous generation, while cutting power consumption by 33 percent. Samsung Green Double Data Rate 3 memory Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) memory from Samsung helps boost the performance of notebooks, desktops and servers while minimizing power consumption and bandwidth requirements. The company’s 30 nm class, 1.35 V, 4 Gb DDR3 memory is the world’s first ultra-low-power memory technology, providing more than a 76 percent power savings over traditional Double Data Rate 2 (DDR2) memory at twice the bandwidth. Samsung DDR3 memory supports data rates of 800 to 1,600 Mbps, with clock frequencies of 400 to 800 MHz and voltage ranges down to 1.35 V. to do a so-called headless installation,” says Shen notes that CloudMosa liked the 50 countries and is extremely popular Shen. “We never hook up a keyboard, mouse performance and reliability of the Samsung with users of the Google® Android™ and monitor. We developed an automatic SSDs and DDR3 memory. “With Samsung’s platform as well. “We are growing installation program, so all we need to do is memory, the power consumption is about 40 percent, quarter to quarter,” put in the server, connect the network and low,” says Shen. “It’s more green, more Shen says. “Very soon we will be everything configures itself. It starts to serve environmentally friendly. But the most the number-one alternative browser. live traffic in about a half hour after we turn important thing is that Samsung devices And give another two years and we on the power.

CloudMosa he says. “It gives us the least expensive computing selected components that included highly platform with the highest performance per efficient Samsung solid-state drives (SSDs) and Supporting ongoing expansion dollar,” says Shen. “It fits our power budget. high-performance, ultra-low-power Samsung The Puffin browser has become the It fits our real budget.
