SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 27 -- Fujitsu Computer Systems Corp. today announced a technology partnership with Citrix, the global leader in application delivery infrastructure. As part of the agreement, Citrix will provide support for Citrix XenServer Enterprise Edition running on the Fujitsu PRIMERGY RX300 S3 server, and the two companies will collaborate on future products. Citrix has also certified the PRIMERGY RX300 S3 Server for XenServer Enterprise Edition.
Citrix XenServer Enterprise Edition runs in Linux and Windows environments, making high-performance server virtualization affordable and easy-to implement for every business. By virtualizing their datacenters, organizations can increase server utilization, lower IT hardware costs and improve operational agility. With XenServer Enterprise running on the PRIMERGY RX300 S3 server, customers can confidently use server virtualization to cost-effectively scale their infrastructure with greater flexibility and reliability, and with the assurance of 100 percent compatibility with XenServer technology.
"With its reputation for mainframe reliability and outstanding customer support, Fujitsu is an excellent platform for deploying XenServer solutions," said Frank Artale, vice president of business development at Citrix Systems Inc. "This partnership will help our joint customers more rapidly obtain the management and agility benefits of server virtualization and control the costs of scaling their infrastructures."
"As a leader in bringing virtualization solutions to market, Fujitsu is continually looking for new ways to ensure our customers have the ability to choose a virtualization technology that meets their specific needs," said Richard McCormack, senior vice president of marketing for Fujitsu Computer Systems. "A technology partnership with Citrix provides Fujitsu customers with access to a highly reliable, industry-leading virtualization platform, while companies first looking to implement virtualization now have a powerful, fully tested combination of Citrix XenServer software and Fujitsu hardware to turn to."

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.
