Radware announced widespread adoption of its Intrusion Prevention Switch DefensePro in the Carrier market. Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom Co, Ltd and Korea Telecom, South Korea's largest fixed-line operator and broadband service provider, recently deployed Radware's Application Switch III Intrusion Prevention solution to secure their networked applications against attacks.
"As the number of broadband subscribers in the US grows to reach over 68 million by 2008, IDC expects the US telcos to respond to increased user demands in their networks by deploying network technology that decreases costs while improving the overall customer experience and security," said Lucinda Borovick, director of Datacenter for IDC.
Chunghwa Telecom services customers in Taiwan with telecommunication and information-related services ranging from local and long-distance calls, international calls, GSM, data communication, Internet services, broadband networking, satellite communication, mobile data and multimedia broadband. Chunghwa deployed Radware DefensePro to secure its network against external attacks while isolating attacks from internal branches within the company. DefensePro also ensures smooth network operation even during attack while dramatically shrinking reaction time to threats.
With the plan to expand the Kornet security management system, Korea Telecom's (KT) high speed Internet service, KT deployed Radware's Intrusion Prevention solution to deliver advanced security intelligence to isolate, block and prevent attacks in real-time at multi-Gigabit speeds to more than 20 million customers. Radware's Application Switch III architecture protects against DoS/DDoS attacks, viruses and worms while controlling the bandwidth that the attacks consume at the Point-of-Presence (POP). This limits the attack spread and ensures that it will not propagate and affect the service level and the performance of other customers' applications that are connected to the same POP.
"KT and Chunghwa Telecom are excellent examples of the traction DefensePro is receiving in the carrier market and demonstrate the need for intrusion prevention solutions amongst carriers worldwide," said Roy Zisapel, president and CEO of Radware. "DefensePro enables carriers to protect their networks against DoS and worm attacks, ensuring immediate attack isolation while preventing spread of attacks to other customers. DefensePro delivers real-time protection in multi-Gigabit speeds, helping carrier customers fulfill their Service Level Agreements."
"Since Radware security devices were first implemented at KT during the Internet disaster of January 25, 2002, our intrusion prevention systems have successfully and continuously blocked the worms and viruses from attacking KT systems. Radware continues to provide KT Corp. with security solutions," said YY Chung, general manager of Radware Korea. "We were once again able to confirm Radware's technology leadership in the latest KT tests and evaluations of other IPS vendors."
Built on top of a performance security switch, DefensePro delivers accelerated security throughput and advanced security intelligence to isolate, block and prevent attacks in real-time for multi-layer application defense. With a port density comprised of one 10 Gigabit port, seven 1 Gigabit ports and 16 fast Ethernet ports, DefensePro enables high capacity scanning across multiple network segments with a single device for internal and external application security. DefensePro features inline security switching and accelerated, stateful, deep-packet inspection -- using Radware's industry leading StringMatch engine hardware -- to bi-directionally scan and protect all network traffic against application level attacks.
The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
