SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 10 -- Sonoa Systems Inc., an innovative provider of cloud service gateways, today announced the availability of Sonoa Analytics, a powerful solution that enables business-level visibility and decision support for cloud services and APIs. Sonoa also announced several new customer wins for Sonoa's analytics, management and governance solutions, which provide visibility and control over cloud services.
In the growing API economy, companies are seeking new ways to understand the audience and impact of cloud services and APIs, just as they have used analytics platforms for years to understand Web behaviors and traffic. Sonoa Analytics is the first business-level analytics solution to offer users the ability to understand usage patterns of customers, partners and services. Sonoa Analytics is a software solution that deploys quickly with no code to write, protects sensitive customer and enterprise data, and scales to thousands of services or customers at enterprise traffic levels without impacting service performance.
Key capabilities of Sonoa Analytics include the ability to:
Sonoa's growing roster of new customers continues to validate demand for solutions that enable the enterprise the visibility and control to trust cloud services. New customers that have selected Sonoa Analytics include Innotas, a provider of Project Portfolio Management solutions; QuickArrow, the worldwide leader in Professional Services Automation solutions; and InfoNGen, the first financial discovery engine.
Sonoa also released a virtual software appliance for each of its analytics, management and governance solutions. Recent customer wins using this solution include MTV, one of the world's leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms; mBlox, the world's largest mobile transaction network; and Cast Iron, a SaaS integration company. These industry leaders have selected Sonoa to ensure visibility and control when opening Web services to large numbers of diverse customers.
"To be successful and to make smart business decisions, we must have the visibility and understand the value, audience and impact of our APIs," said Tim Madewell, vice president of engineering at Innotas. "We selected Sonoa to provide this important level of information and trust that it will allow us to manage our company activities and make the right decisions to move our business forward."
"No executive would run a Web site without the analytics to understand and make decisions around customers, partners and investments. APIs require the same level of visibility," said Chet Kapoor, CEO of Sonoa Systems. "As businesses are beginning to see more traffic through their cloud services or APIs than their browser-based applications, it is necessary to have a scalable, easy to install analytics solution for valuable business insight. We are addressing this need and giving our customers the ability to rapidly introduce a powerful, enterprise-grade analytics solution built for 'cloud scale.'"

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.
