SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 4 -- FalconStor Software Inc., the market leader in disk-based data protection solutions, has partnered with SeaChange International Inc., a leading provider of mission-critical storage systems, to offer an extremely high-density, high-performance, and flexible storage solution for small- and medium-sized business and enterprise data storage markets. The solution is powered by the award-winning FalconStor IPStor virtualization platform and SeaChange’s Drawer of Drives storage platform, and supports up to 504TB of storage in a single rack footprint.
The density, performance and scalability of this FalconStor/SeaChange combination are unprecedented in a product of this size. The flexibility of the FalconStor IPStor platform enables users to take advantage of the Drawer of Drives’ capacity to mix any combination of SAS and SATA II hard drives using only one tray. The available solutions include FalconStor Continuous Data Protection (CDP), which provides the fastest, most granular data recovery available across all heterogeneous storage devices, as well as FalconStor’s industry leading VirtualTape Library (VTL) with Single Instance Repository (SIR) for de-duplication, which leverages disk to emulate industry standard tape libraries.
“The combination of FalconStor CDP and VTL software products with SeaChange’s Drawer of Drives storage platform creates a highly available storage solution designed for enterprise applications involving massive quantities of data,” said Bernie Wu, vice president for business development at FalconStor. “FalconStor software and Drawer of Drives will operate as an open system to support any file format, network and application.”
“SeaChange and FalconStor have established a storage solution that provides vital relief for space and budget-constrained enterprises,” said David Kendler, vice president of storage strategy for SeaChange International. “The combination of FalconStor software and SeaChange hardware creates an unprecedented storage capacity in an ultra-compact footprint, making it the best of all possible solutions as enterprise storage demands continue to grow exponentially year over year.”
FalconStor CDP and VTL software products and Drawer of Drives are available from solution providers under the FalconStor and SeaChange brands, respectively.
SeaChange International Inc. is a leading provider of mission-critical storage solutions that economically provide massive capacity combined with the highest levels of reliability. Enterprises worldwide are using SeaChange systems to store and manage the data and content that serves as the very core of their businesses while enjoying the peace of mind that comes with SeaChange’s patented RAID2 (raid squared) fault-resilience technology. Headquartered in Acton, Mass., SeaChange has product development, support and sales offices around the world. Visit www.schange.com.

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.
