LOS ANGELES, April 21, 2010 --Lieberman Software Corporation, the enterprise leader in privileged identity management, will host an online discussion about the challenges of maintaining security and compliance in cloud environments. While organizations are increasingly turning to cloud services as a way to cut operational costs, the migration creates new concerns about data security and regulatory compliance and introduces new elements of business risk for both customers and service providers.
“Telecommunications and cloud service providers must meet their customers half way if they expect their solutions to emerge as viable alternatives to the traditional enterprise model”
On Thursday, April 29, at 2:00 p.m. ET/11:00 a.m. PT, Field and Wave Solutions Cloud Computing Strategist Steve Staso and Lieberman Software CEO Phil Lieberman will discuss these concerns and review emerging technologies that are designed to preserve security and compliance.
“Two issues have emerged with the rise of cloud computing,” stated Philip Lieberman, founder and CEO of Lieberman Software. “One the one hand, the introduction of cloud-compatible security technologies lags significantly behind today’s business migration – leaving many cloud customers more exposed than they may realize. On the other hand cloud service providers have failed to provide adequate transparency and accountability to their customers into their security measures.”
“Telecommunications and cloud service providers must meet their customers half way if they expect their solutions to emerge as viable alternatives to the traditional enterprise model,” said Steve Staso, cloud computing strategist for Field and Wave Solutions. “The potential benefits of cloud computing are huge, and as soon as providers meet customers with a level of transparency, they will open the doors to increased business.”
Webinar attendees will discover ways to:
* Enhance the security of existing cloud computing services and gain market share;
* Eliminate barriers of adoption by clearly defining certain security practices;
* Scale, enforce and audit the management of passwords for privileged user accounts of infrastructure components (e.g., servers, routers, switches, firewalls, load balancers, etc.)

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.
