SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 10 -- Two leaders in open source and Java application development, SpringSource and Terracotta, today announced a comprehensive partnership to simplify the development and deployment of enterprise Java applications and reduce the costs of their scale-out, tuning, and ongoing operations. Under terms of the agreement, SpringSource and Terracotta are tightly integrating their products and providing organizations with key resources and tools for quickly building and supporting specific vertical applications and processes powered by Java infrastructure. For a live application demonstration, visit http://reference.terracotta.org/examinator.
As a first step, the two companies have already collaboratively developed reference implementations and best practice design patterns for processes such as authentication and authorization (Terracotta + Spring Security), workflow (Terracotta + Spring Workflow), and database offload (Terracotta + Spring MVC). In addition to application reference implementations, Terracotta and SpringSource are actively engaged in joint development to more tightly integrate their two solutions to include the SpringSource dm Server.
Organizations across a number of markets including e-commerce, health care, travel, telecommunications, banking and financial services have developed Java-based infrastructure using Terracotta and SpringSource as foundation technologies. Spring is the de facto standard platform to build, run, and manage enterprise Java applications; Terracotta is a breakthrough Java data management solution that reduces the operational and capital costs required to build and support reliable, scalable Web applications. For Java applications, Terracotta provides an infrastructure layer that drives simpler scalability by reducing database and custom development costs often associated with expanding application capacity.
"Terracotta and SpringSource have a common goal: simplify and reduce the cost of developing and operating enterprise Java application," says Terracotta CEO Amit Pandey. "As IT departments in organizations of all sizes try and do more with less, solutions like Terracotta and Spring are exactly what they need to meet their customers' strict requirements for reliable, high-performance applications and processes."
"Terracotta is the only Java clustering solution certified through SpringSource's Certified Solution Provider program and listed on the SpringSource Exchange, as it provides the most effective way to simplify Java application deployment and management," said Rod Johnson, CEO of SpringSource. "SpringSource and Terracotta will continue to work together leveraging SpringSource Certified Software to build scalable and cost-effective Java infrastructure that support mission-critical applications and processes."
About Terracotta Inc.
Terracotta is infrastructure software that provides affordable and scalable high availability for Java applications. Companies use Terracotta to offload work from databases and application servers and to reduce their development efforts. Founded in 2003, Terracotta Inc. is a private firm headquartered in San Francisco. More information is available at www.terracottatech.com. Terracotta's open source community is available at www.terracotta.org.
SpringSource createdSpring, the de facto standard platform to build, run and manage enterprise Java applications. SpringSource is also the leading support provider for Apache Tomcat. The SpringSource platform is designed from the ground up for complete portability and scalability for today's datacenter and for next-generation virtualized, grid and cloud deployments. Nearly half of the Global 2000, including many of the world's largest financial institutions, retailers, manufacturers, health care, technology and public sector clients are SpringSource customers.

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.
