LISLE, Ill., April 20, 2010 -- Univa UD, a leading provider of cloud management software, announced today that Aspera Inc. and Univa will leverage both companies' technologies to deliver seamless, end-to-end private, public and hybrid cloud resource management and large bulk data transfer solutions for cloud computing customers.
"We're taking the concept of data mobility in the cloud to the next level," says Gary Tyreman, senior vice president of products and alliances at Univa UD.
Aspera develops breakthrough software transfer technologies to achieve optimal performance and cost savings using existing network infrastructure. Aspera's fasp technology enables Fortune 500 corporations, Hollywood studios, major broadcasters, life sciences organizations and government agencies to move terabytes of data on a daily basis as a core part of their business process.
"Having both Univa UD and Aspera's fasp as a combined solution brings cloud computing infinitely closer to the end user," says Diego Dugatkin, vice president of product management at Aspera. "We are looking forward to bringing cutting-edge cloud solutions to market with Univa."
Univa's leading product for private, public and hybrid cloud management, UniCloud, allows application users to manage physical and virtual infrastructures at scale and achieve an unprecedented level of application and data mobility. UniCloud makes it easy to on-board an organization or application into a cloud environment, and enables policy management based on established service level agreements or requirements.
As partners, Univa and Aspera will allow customers to eliminate cloud latency and data throughput concerns by building clusters in the public cloud or creating hybrid environments by securely extending on-premise infrastructure into a public cloud. Customers can also use Univa and Aspera products to create private cloud computing environments within the corporate firewall capable of easily moving bulk-data sets on demand based on application and users needs.

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 private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.

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.
