BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 11 -- Enterprise Management
Associates (EMA), a leading IT management research and consulting firm,
today issued its annual take on IT management trends to watch for in
2008. The 2008 trends span the entire IT management market and
represent many of the technologies that will be top-of-mind for IT
professionals during the coming year, including the configuration management database (CMDB), service catalogs, datacenter automation
"EMA is uniquely positioned to speak to these trends because of our
focus on IT management and the constant interaction among our
close-knit team of analysts and consultants," said Dan Twing, COO at
EMA. "This interaction both helps us identify areas where technologies
are converging and keeps our research grounded in the real-world issues
facing enterprise IT."
EMA has identified nine hot topic areas for the IT management market in 2008 and foresees the following:
"While we will continue to conduct research across a wide array of
IT management practice areas, each of these hot topics will receive a
considerable amount of attention from the EMA team in 2008," said
Twing, "Expect to see new research, advisory notes and articles
expanding on these topics in the future from EMA."
An overview of planned 2008 EMA research on these topics can be accessed directly at www.emausa.com/ema_collateral/EMA_ResearchTrackCalendar-2008.pdf.

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.
