SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 2 -- Fujitsu Computer Systems Corp. announced the North American availability of Resource Coordinator Virtual Edition (RCVE), software that provides enterprise datacenters and cloud computing providers with improved management control, rapid reconfiguration capabilities, and fully automated failover for both physical and virtualized blade servers.
RCVE reduces the time and resources needed to install, configure and recover workloads on blade servers, regardless of whether the servers are physical or virtualized.
Key features include:
Richard McCormack, senior vice president of marketing at Fujitsu Computer Systems: "As virtualized server deployments continue to gain ground in datacenters, RCVE allows Fujitsu customers to get the most from their all their infrastructure investments. The robust, unified management capabilities of RCVE eliminate the existing disconnect between the physical and virtualized environments, while simplified administration and increased availability save time and reduce costs."
John Enck, managing vice president for Gartner: "While the benefits of a virtualized datacenter are clear, many organizations are finding the slow transition painful because they are forced to manage systems in two distinct worlds. Solutions that can bridge these worlds and unify -- and simplify -- the management of all systems will ease the burden on IT managers, drive down costs, and help accelerate the migration to datacenter-wide virtualization. This has the potential to directly and significantly benefit a company's bottom line."

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.
