CHICAGO, Nov. 20 -- Clerity Solutions Inc. (Clerity), a leading full-service provider of mainframe migration and modernization solutions, today introduced new software and services that enable legacy mainframe applications and rehosted workloads to play strategic roles in SOA and Web services initiatives.
Building on a heritage of maximizing the value of core IT assets while lowering total cost of ownership, Clerity Service Builder and Clerity Web Connect allow organizations to easily expose legacy assets as secure Web Services and rapidly transform inflexible screen-based applications into modern, user-friendly Web applications.
"Our SOA and Modernization technology solves a pressing problem for customers -- how to integrate distributed applications with legacy workloads," said Brandon Edenfield, president of Clerity Solutions Inc. "As companies rely more on SOA initiatives to preserve investments and reduce costs, including legacy applications and open systems assets without recoding or rebuilding is an important step in delivering enterprise-class business services."
Using Clerity Service Builder, companies can quickly assemble and deploy multi-step, multi-operation composite business services from 3270-based CICS, IMS, and UniKix Transaction Processing Environment (UniKix TPE) transactions, in addition to COMMAREA and native data Web Services. Clerity Service Builder's runtime environment runs on a mainframe or rehosted platform, eliminating the need for costly and complex middleware. An intuitive drag-and-drop development tool is included to compose business services and it is pre-integrated with key technologies to make generated services instantly recognizable and accessible within a SOA environment. These services can be utilized by .NET and Java-based application environments; no special understanding of SOAP, XML, WSDL or HTTP protocols is required.
With Clerity Web Connect, inflexible "green screen" applications can be rapidly transformed into modern, user-friendly Web applications without changing underlying program code. Offering a simple visual editing environment, Clerity Web Connect provides instant access to 3270 and 5250 applications so developers can develop, deploy, and call Web Services from any captured screen.
"The look of an application can be quickly improved without requiring HTML or Java coding skills," said Barry Tait, modernization architect for Clerity. "Screen interface customization and application workflow reengineering is all performed in an intuitive visual environment; eliminating work that used to take organizations weeks or even months to perform."
Both Clerity Service Builder and Clerity Web Connect are available immediately. In addition to providing these key technologies, Clerity offers a range of discovery, assessment, and delivery services to assist organizations in evaluating, executing, and managing SOA, Web Services, and related legacy modernization initiatives.
More information on Clerity's legacy modernization and SOA offerings, including an upcoming December 9th Webinar focused on providing in-depth demonstrations of Clerity Service Builder and Clerity Web Connect, can be found at www.clerity.com/soa.

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.
