BILLERICA, Mass., and HERZELIYA, Israel, Nov. 28 -- Voltaire Ltd., a leading provider of grid backbone solutions for the datacenter, today announced it has been named the No. 1 company on the 2007 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years, from 2002-2006. Voltaire experienced a 500X growth rate during this period.
"We are honored to be recognized as the fastest growing company in EMEA," said Ronnie Kenneth, CEO of Voltaire. "Our fast and consistent growth is a testament to our customers who depend on Voltaire switches and software to improve the performance and efficiency of their datacenters."
"We congratulate Voltaire for taking the top position in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA and for being the fastest growing networking company among this select group of high growth companies. Achieving a phenomenal revenue growth of 500X over five years is a tremendous achievement," said Eric Morgain, partner in charge of Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 EMEA program.
In addition to ranking on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500, Voltaire ranked number-one on the Israel Technology Fast 50, which is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology firms in Israel.
In July 2007, Voltaire completed an initial public offering on the Nasdaq Global Market.

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.
