CAMPBELL, Calif., Dec. 5 -- ONStor Inc., the leading
provider of scalable clustered NAS solutions for the enterprise, today
announced that it has joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner
Program. The relationship enables ONStor to receive both technical and
marketing benefits as it expands its understanding and delivery of
VMware Infrastructure solutions.
ONStor will receive software for validation and integration,
pre-sales development, technical support and subscription services,
marketing tools and access to certification services to promote its
virtualization solution to end users.
Bob Miller, CEO of ONStor, stated, "The VMware Technology Alliance
Partner Program is designed to enable ONStor to achieve technical
compatibility with VMware products while leveraging a set of marketing
tools to help promote our solutions. This will ensure our compatibility
with VMware Infrastructure and enable joint customers to make maximum
use of the flexibility and high availability of our product range."
"This relationship means that customers utilizing VMware
Infrastructure in their datacenters will be able to take advantage of
ONStor's highly scalable NAS solution as a centralized data store for
virtualized environments. ONStor's combination of availability,
scalability and virtualization features makes it a complementary fit
for the virtualized datacenter," added Miller.
Working with VMware, ONStor will also be able to take advantage of a number of other benefits, including:
ONStor recently announced a new addition to its Pantera line of
virtualized storage solutions with the launch of the Pantera 5000. A
fortified version of its clustered NAS solution, the Pantera 5000 more
than doubles the per cabinet capacity of the Pantera 2000 and offers
higher performance to support the large, fast-growing file storage
demands of medium to large enterprises and organizations with
substantial digital imaging storage requirements.
ONStor's newest product offers storage managers advanced power
management; the ability to scale to massive capacities at a greater
density; plus file server consolidation features to deliver a greener
data center solution via low energy consumption, a reduced footprint
and lower cooling costs.
The ONStor product line -- which includes the Pantera 5000 and
Pantera 2000 Series Clustered NAS solutions and the Bobcat NAS Gateway
-- offers enterprise customers a range of scalable NAS solutions
designed to minimize the cost and administrative burden of managing
data growth in real time across multiple tiers of storage.
ONStor drives down the cost of storage management by delivering
scalable clustered NAS that saves enterprises 50 percent on total cost
of ownership with systems that let customers start small and scale
massively as their requirements grow. ONStor's award-winning Pantera
Clustered NAS Systems and Bobcat NAS Gateways consolidate information
from multiple Windows, UNIX and Linux devices into a single, highly
scalable file storage environment. The open storage architecture allows
existing assets to be leveraged, while integrated file server
virtualization enables resources to be redeployed quickly to
accommodate changing needs. Proven at hundreds of enterprise customer
sites, ONStor delivers the cost-effective approach to scalable storage.

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.
