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.

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.

Ruan Pethiyagoda, Cameron Boehmer, John S. Dvorak, and Tim Sze, trained at San Francisco’s Hack Reactor, an institute designed for intense fast paced learning of programming, put together a program based on the N-Queens algorithm designed by the University of Cambridge’s Martin Richards, and modified it to run in parallel across multiple machines.
