SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 3 -- Juniper Networks Inc., the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that Dexia, a European banking group and a leader in financing services for the public sector, has deployed a new security architecture throughout its branch network based upon the Juniper Networks Integrated Security Gateway (ISG) 2000 and the Juniper Networks NetScreen Security Manager (NSM). With offices in the most prominent industrialized countries in the world, the bank was required to upgrade its firewall provision to provide comprehensive protection without compromising performance.
“Speed and security are the touchstones of the network in financial services, and these factors underpin people’s confidence in our brand,” said Laurent Deffranne, of Dexia’s Network Security Competence Centre. “Juniper has delivered a high-performance security infrastructure that easily meets all of our business critical requirements. With Juniper’s ISG and NSM, we are able to secure our network without compromising performance.”
The Juniper Networks ISG 2000 is a fully integrated FW/VPN/IPS system with multi-gigabit performance, a modular architecture and rich virtualization capabilities. The full IPS capability available on the ISG products via the IDP security modules, provide robust network and application layer protection against current and emerging threats. With unmatched security processing power and network segmentation features, the ISG Series can be deployed to protect network perimeters as well as internal servers and network segments.
“Juniper’s ISG provides seamless integration of a number of security technologies to ensure a cost-effective deployment,” said Gert-Jan Schenk, senior vice president of operations for EMEA at Juniper Networks. “Virtualization in the ISG 2000 enables Dexia to operate up to 250 virtual firewalls from a single platform, while integration of functions such as intrusion prevention removes the need for multiple devices to secure their network.”
Juniper’s local partner Dimension Data is responsible for the implementation of the security solutions.

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 private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.

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.
