Earlier this month, Holium Corporation the developers of Realm, announced the acquisition of Third Earth, an Urbit hosting platform. After just one short year in operation, Holium is nearing the official launch date of Realm, a full-service operating system designed for the future of computing. While currently in Alpha stage, Realm has over 5,000 users on their waitlist eager to be granted access and begin utilizing the feature set. The official launch is slated for Summer 2023 with an aggressive development cycle currently underway. Having raised $2.9M in seed funding, Holium deployed resources to build integrated apps such as a crypto wallet, a video conferencing platform, and collaborative document creation. To date, 10 Urbit apps have been pushed live by the Holium team with more on the near horizon including a group messenger for mobile.

Holium Corporation Details:

  • Realm operating system will be available for download on MacOS, Windows, and Linux.
  • With the acquisition of Third Earth, Holium will provide Urbit hosting and seamless onboarding.
  • A complimentary mobile app is in development and will launch along with Realm.
  • Realm will move from Alpha to full release in Summer 2023, forgoing the Beta phase entirely.

"Our goal at Holium is to create a collaborative computing experience which fosters community growth while maintaining user autonomy. Urbit allows us to do so as it is truly peer-to-peer without any form of data collection or distribution. With a single Urbit ID and access to Realm, individuals can easily eliminate 5 to 8 applications from their personal and professional software stack." 

CEO Trent Gillham is a featured speaker at the upcoming Urbit Volcano Summit, taking place in El Salvador from March 6 to 10.

Illustrated newspaper 'StormForge Times' with front page article announcing Kumina partnership

StormForge, the leader in Kubernetes resource optimization, today announced their partnership with Kumina. The Netherlands-based company with over a decade of experience in providing mission-critical IT services will offer StormForge's Kubernetes resource optimization solution Optimize Live.

Together, Kumina and StormForge will provide Kubernetes users with an all-inclusive package comprising managed Kubernetes services and advanced optimization capabilities.

This partnership will help users enhance the performance and efficiency of their Kubernetes clusters, reducing costs and freeing up resources to focus on other aspects of their business. Consequently, Kumina's expertise in managing Kubernetes clusters with customized IT solutions will assist users in maximizing the performance of the optimization platform provided by StormForge.

Kumina's CEO Tim Stoop is enthusiastic about the benefits customers gain from integrating StormForge:

"I was impressed how Optimize Live has solved a whole class of customer issues with one solution, reliably and deterministically, while actually allowing resource usage to go down as a whole. We can help customers scale with confidence and cut costs with StormForge without sacrificing user experience. I am really excited about the potential that StormForge brings to the table."

Optimize Live

StormForge Optimize Live applies machine learning to existing Kubernetes metrics to make real-time, actionable recommendations to resource settings for any deployment running in Kubernetes. By optimizing CPU and memory settings, customers can save cloud resources and money, reduce the business risk of poorly performing applications, and get their developers focused on innovating, not tuning their Kubernetes environment. StormForge's Solutions Architect Niels Roetert expresses enthusiasm regarding the benefits afforded by the solution:

"StormForge Optimize Live provides Pod resource right-sizing and can set optimal TargetUtilisation values for Kubernetes HPA to operate on. It does so continuously and without any human effort (configurable) at large scale. This results in resource and cost savings most of the time, when beneficial, resources are actually added to facilitate a better performing and more reliable application, which is a win-win for the application owner either way."
