Fujitsu Siemens Computers and EMC Corporation today announced integration of EMC networked storage systems and software with the next generation of Fujitsu Siemens Computers' FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite. Aimed at reducing total cost of ownership of IT for enterprises, FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite version 4.0 is designed to give customers improved information management and protection while delivering an adaptable and flexible computing infrastructure. FlexFrame provides a means for running enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA) from SAP, with SAP NetWeaver as a technical foundation.
"We have worked closely with Fujitsu Siemens Computers on this integration initiative" said Chuck Hollis, EMC, vice president of Technology Alliances. "The combined strengths of Fujitsu Siemens Computers' advanced FlexFrame server technology and EMC networked storage and software technology means that SAP customers now have a superior choice to deliver higher levels of performance, flexibility and availability."
FlexFrame is central to Fujitsu Siemens Computers' Dynamic Data Centre strategy. According to the company, FlexFrame delivers agility for greater business efficiency and reduces the financial burden on large enterprises running enterprise SOA technology from existing SAP applications on UNIX or Linux. Developed in conjunction with SAP, FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite aims to improve the availability and support of SAP applications.
Bernd Kosch, vice president of Alliances, Fujitsu Siemens Computers, said, "Staying ahead of the competition is the key to commercial success for many businesses today. FlexFrame is designed to accelerate the development and exploitation of new business opportunities in response to changing market conditions to give companies this edge. By working closely with EMC, we are providing FlexFrame for mySAP Business Suite customers with new storage networking capabilities and benefits. This effort with EMC further supports our core strategy around the Dynamic Data Centre to provide enterprises with stress-free IT operations."
The addition of EMC technology to Fujitsu Siemens Computers' FlexFrame storage line-up is part of the company's strategy to identify the most popular solutions for the data centre and ensure they are supported.
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.

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.
