SAN DIEGO, Dec. 4 -- Verari Systems, developer of platform-independent blade-based computing and storage solutions, today announced the release of Verari Command Center (VCC) 3.10, the latest version of its comprehensive management software solution. This release of VCC delivers enhanced management and monitoring features as well as expanded metric reporting and plotting capabilities. As a VMware Technology Alliance Partner, Verari is utilizing this release to deliver new support for VMware ESX-based virtual servers. In addition, VCC 3.10 further extends its ability to provide remote “lights out” management of the enterprise datacenter.
“Verari Systems is committed to providing solutions that increase the efficiency and reduce the complexity of today’s datacenters,” said Jennifer Skjellum, president of Verari Systems Software. “This release of VCC is evidence of that commitment with newly expanded functionality that enables IT organizations to manage more with less. VCC 3.10 extends the ability of system administrators to remotely manage systems and keep their finger on the pulse of the datacenter. For those looking for a solution that provides comprehensive management of Verari’s BladeRack 2 Series platform and seamless integration with existing infrastructures, VCC has no equal.”
VCC is designed for remote management and interoperability in heterogeneous datacenters. The award-winning software provides a robust set of management services that can be accessed via a Web services API, enabling you to manage the BladeRack 2 Series infrastructure from your favorite interface. VCC comes with a native management console that fully leverages this API to deliver comprehensive system management for the BladeRack 2 Series environment.

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 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.

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.
