CA has announced the availability of Wily Introscope version 7.1, a new release of their solution for monitoring and optimizing the performance of business-critical web applications, portals and SOAs. The latest release of CA's Wily Introscope offers integration with CA's Unicenter Network and Systems Management (Unicenter NSM) to create a single source of comprehensive visibility into network, infrastructure and application performance.
"The continued growth and pace of innovation from the Wily Division demonstrates CA is executing on its strategy to acquire industry leading companies and accelerate their development," said Julie Craig, senior analyst at Enterprise Management Associates. "Deep, out-of-the-box integration between Wily Introscope and Unicenter NSM is a natural evolution for management solutions and shows CA understands the IT management challenges organizations are grappling with today."
Wily Introscope 7.1 includes a new DVD-R-like navigation feature that allows customers to scroll through detailed, time-coded replays of actual user transactions and conduct root-cause problem analysis. The reporting and chart features in Wily Introscope 7.1 have been enhanced with new views that allow customers to generate summary and comparison reports for analysis and distribution to IT and business managers.
To streamline use by CA's system integrator (SI) partners such as Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Wily Introscope 7.1 introduces HTTP tunneling and proxy support which will allow SIs to automatically instrument web applications with Wily Introscope for their clients as part of their software delivery process. These features will enable SI's to monitor, triage and diagnose their clients' remotely-hosted web applications.
Wily Introscope 7.1 provides out-of-the-box integration that combines application and portal performance metrics and alerts with Unicenter NSM's views of the performance of IT infrastructure and network. This complete view of performance allows IT teams to correlate transaction performance with infrastructure performance in a single operations dashboard. This can improve the ability of IT staff to identify and correct performance problems while improving the overall end-user experience with web applications.
Wily Introscope continues to provide full integration with all third-party management frameworks such as IBM Tivoli and HP OpenView.
"By enabling customers to synthesize real-time performance metrics from both the application and network perspective, Wily Introscope 7.1 delivers unrivaled insight into enterprise performance," said Mike Malloy, vice president and chief marketing officer at CA's Wily Technology Division. "Our customers can expect Wily Introscope to remain framework-independent even as we develop innovative new management solutions and build strategic points-of-integration to CA's broader technology portfolio."
Wily Introscope delivers a single source of application, portal and SOA performance information for all IT and business stakeholders. It provides a common tool that senior management, line-of-business managers, operations personnel, system administrators, QA and development teams can use to help ensure that applications are successfully achieving business and IT quality-of-service goals.
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.
