STERLING, Va., May 25, 2010 -- IceWEB, Inc., www.IceWEB.com, a leading provider of Unified Data Storage and building blocks for cloud storage networks, has been awarded a contract for Storage Appliances and Servers to assist in deploying satellite imagery in the theatre of combat areas.
IceWEB, in cooperation with its Federal Integrator, will assist its Government customer in deploying large imagery datasets that are too large to be sent via traditional communication lines. This award is a pilot program that, upon successful deployment, should lead to additional task orders on the contract. IceWEB will work closely with its partner and the end user to continue to develop solutions in support of National Defense. Delivery is expected to occur in the current quarter.
Tim McNamee, Federal Channel Director of IceWEB, stated, "We are very pleased to continue to be chosen as the 'go-to' partner for so many federal deployment projects. IceWEB's solutions are a perfect match for larger Systems Integrators to use in Federal support efforts."

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.

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.
