AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 11 -- Hyper9 Inc., formerly known as InovaWave Inc., today announced the completion of a revised corporate identity, which will better align and communicate the company’s products and business to its target market. At the same time, Hyper9 also announced the appointment of Ben Rouse, an industry veteran with more than 20 years experience in enterprise systems management, enterprise information integration and high-performance computing, to the new role of chief product officer. Rouse will also serve on the Hyper9 board of directors.
The new name reflects a corporate strategy that positions Hyper9 in the emerging virtualization management software market. It also supports the company’s intention to offer a broader set of software products to the server virtualization industry.
“The name change from InovaWave to Hyper9 Inc. supports our mission to take advantage of wider opportunities in the virtualization software market beyond performance optimization of virtual machines,” said Chris Ostertag, president and CEO of Hyper9 Inc. “At the same time, the appointment of Ben Rouse as our chief product officer will prove integral to rapidly scaling the company to meet expected market demand. Ben’s expertise in enterprise systems management and virtualization will be a key asset in delivering on the company’s vision.”
As chief product officer, Rouse will lead product development and strategy for all Hyper9 product lines.
“It should come as no surprise, the systems management challenges associated with virtual infrastructure have become top of mind for IT executives,” said Rouse. “The opportunity to create a management solution that embraces the dynamic nature of virtual machines is exciting -- especially with hand-picked virtualization and management experts who are not burdened with legacy platforms.”
Before coming to Hyper9, Rouse served as the CEO of United Devices, a developer of policy-driven automation solutions for next-generation data centers, where he was responsible for the company’s continued growth and overall strategic vision. Prior to United Devices, Rouse was the president and CEO of Journée Software Corp. (acquired by Initiate Systems), a pioneer in the Enterprise Information Integration market. Before Journée, Rouse was the general manager of a $200 million business unit at Tivoli Systems, which was acquired by IBM. In five years at Tivoli, Rouse managed five different divisions through explosive growth and helped the company drive revenue from $50 million to $2 billion. Rouse began his career at LTV Corporation and has held various customer engineering and sales positions at Dallas-based start-up Pinpoint Communications and Convex Computer Corp., a company acquired by Hewlett-Packard.
Founded by enterprise systems management experts and virtualization visionaries, Hyper9 is creating solutions to address the unique challenges presented by virtualization. The company is pioneering a new paradigm in the way virtual infrastructures can be managed. Based in Austin, Texas, Hyper9 is a privately held company backed by Matrix Partners and Silverton Partners. More information about Hyper9 is located online at www.hyper9.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.
