LITTLETON, Mass., Dec. 3 -- Marathon Technologies Corp., the leading provider of automated, fault tolerant-class availability solutions for virtual and physical environments, today announced the launch of everRun CDP. The new software complements Marathon's everRun family of proven availability software by extending the breadth of protection to remote locations. Marathon's everRun software dramatically reduces or eliminates downtime due to system, storage or network connection failures. everRun CDP provides added protection from catastrophic failure by capturing and replicating application data across any distance, in real-time.
Unlike traditional data protection and replication software than can leave gaps in data protection, everRun CDP ensures uninterrupted data protection. This powerful but easy to use software allows IT managers to quickly and simply recover data from any point in time. everRun CDP ensures that the application data is safe, up to date and readily available at a remote location hundreds or thousands of miles away.
"everRun CDP extends everRun protection across the country or the globe," said Jerry Melnick, chief technology officer at Marathon Technologies. "Recovering data and transactions is as simple as selecting the time you want to 'roll back' to, and everRun CDP presents a copy of your data precisely as it looked at that point."
everRun CDP, which is available now, integrates seamlessly with standard server, storage and network environments and includes application-specific options for Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server and SharePoint.
Marathon's everRun line of fault tolerant-class software products protects Microsoft Windows applications from leading sources of downtime while eliminating the need for costly and complex failover processes, specialized applications, or proprietary server hardware. Turnkey, automated, and simplicity are the cornerstones of the everRun line, which uses embedded intelligent policy management to prevent application downtime. The primary benefit to the end user is that they are protecting their business by ensuring continuity of operations -- simply, at low cost and with complete confidence. Network World recently named Marathon Technologies one of "ten virtualization companies to watch."

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.
