TIBCO Software Inc. announced the general
availability of PortalBuilder 5, which provides global customers with
new feature-rich enhancements and a natural, cost-effective approach to
deploy portal solutions that harness the power of a Service-Oriented
Now more than ever, portals are being seen as the linchpin or face
of SOA, helping customers become more nimble and responsive through the
timely personalized delivery of relevant information assets.
PortalBuilder 5 provides enterprise organizations with a unified
presentation layer for SOA. It consumes services and easily integrates
non-SOA applications and content to enable composite applications that
efficiently deliver targeted, user-centric views to the right people at
the right time.
"The availability of TIBCO PortalBuilder 5 strengthens our
comprehensive service-oriented strategy by simplifying the face of
SOA," said Ram Menon, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at
TIBCO. "Our continued focus on usability and strong support for
industry standards has resulted in the delivery of a cost-effective
portal platform that allows companies to quickly react to changing
market dynamics with targeted composite applications."
TIBCO PortalBuilder 5 provides customers with a flexible,
configuration-driven interface that minimizes the need for custom
coding to help reduce the time and cost to deploy portals. The
intuitive interface of TIBCO PortalBuilder 5 also reduces information
technology bottlenecks by facilitating delegated administration to
allow business users to play a more active role in the development,
deployment and management of portals. In addition, PortalBuilder's
enriched capabilities allow customers to more rapidly and
cost-effectively derive benefits from their SOA by simplifying the
process of consuming, assembling and then delivering services to users
throughout the extended enterprise.
TIBCO's latest portal offering is based on several key standards
including the Java Specification Request 168 -- a Java API for portlet
interoperability -- and Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP). This
enables the seamless integration of a wide range of content and
applications, as well as the consumption and syndication of portlets
with other WSRP-compliant portal solutions. Additionally, TIBCO
PortalBuilder 5 supports a variety of infrastructure components, such
as servlet engines, database servers and other infrastructure
technologies for deployment within heterogeneous environments.
Furthermore, TIBCO PortalBuilder 5 interacts seamlessly with TIBCO's
comprehensive integration and business process management solutions, as
well as TIBCO General Interface (GI) to allow customers to fully
leverage these solutions' capabilities inside the portal environment.
The combination of TIBCO PortalBuilder and TIBCO GI -- an
AJAX-based solution for developing rich Internet applications --
provides customers with the industry's most advanced rich portal.
Together, these technologies enable a highly interactive and responsive
user experience, allowing customers to develop and deploy rich
composite applications within their portals.
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.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
04/02/2012 | AMD | Developers today are just beginning to explore the potential of heterogeneous computing, but the potential for this new paradigm is huge. This brief article reviews how the technology might impact a range of application development areas, including client experiences and cloud-based data management. As platforms like OpenCL continue to evolve, the benefits of heterogeneous computing will become even more accessible. Use this quick article to jump-start your own thinking on heterogeneous computing.
