PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 26 -- Scalent Systems, provider of infrastructure virtualization software for large datacenters, today announced that Scalent V/OE software will be available through HP in December 2007 as part of the HP BladeSystem c-Class Solution Builder Program.
Scalent V/OE infrastructure virtualization software enables datacenter managers to react in real time to changing business needs. It does this by dynamically changing the software stack that servers are running and how those servers are connected to networks and storage systems, without making physical changes to the infrastructure. This ability to make real-time server software, network connectivity and storage access changes adds greater infrastructure flexibility, drives down costs and increases deployment and failover capabilities of datacenter systems.
"We are pleased that HP is making Scalent V/OE available to their BladeSystem c-Class Server customers," said Kevin Epstein, vice president of marketing of Scalent Systems. "Scalent's non-disruptive approach to infrastructure virtualization has been deployed across many of the Fortune 500 to dramatically improve utilization and agility of the physical and virtual servers in their datacenters."
Making Scalent V/OE software available through the HP BladeSystem Solution Builder Program will enable customers to use their existing HP relationships, contracts and purchasing agreements to obtain Scalent software. Implemented in an HP environment, the software lets customers seamlessly add, swap, and failover between blade servers, while transparently maintaining the consistency and integrity of their business systems. This extends the functionality of HP's BladeSystem Insight Control and the recently announced enhancements to BladeSystem virtualization and power management features.
"The addition of Scalent V/OE to the HP BladeSystem c-Class Solution Builder portfolio should greatly improve infrastructure operations for IT administrators," said Paul Miller, vice president of marketing for Enterprise Storage and Servers at HP. "Our customers will have a new solution to deploy or repurpose entire tiers of networked servers in minutes without manual intervention -- increasing performance, agility and building on HP's Adaptive Infrastructure strategy."
About Scalent Systems
Scalent Systems is the leading provider of infrastructure virtualization software to large datacenters worldwide. Scalent's software enables datacenters to react in real-time to changing business needs by dynamically changing what servers are running and how those servers are connected to network and storage. The result is an adaptive infrastructure, where datacenters can transition between different configurations -- or from bare metal to live, connected servers -- in five minutes or less, without physical intervention. Using Scalent software, companies have been able to implement cost-effective solutions while reducing server counts, simplifying manageability and increasing reliability. Many of the Fortune 1000 companies rely on Scalent to support their success, having adopted the software as an integral part of their IT operations.
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.

he 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.
