SYDNEY, May 27, 2010 -- Sqware Peg, a leading Cloud Computing consulting and solutions provider in the Asia-Pacific region, has announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Informatica Corporation to resell Informatica Cloud in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and Singapore.
The partnership will enable Sqware Peg to resell Informatica’s Cloud Services solutions across Asia Pacific. At the same time, the agreement will enable the Australian-headquartered SaaS-based integrator to build out an extensive cloud integration services practice and enhance its offering to a range of vertical markets, including telecommunications, high tech, automotive, education and business services.
Informatica Cloud Services are multi-tenant, secure, low-cost, easy to use, and require minimal IT resources to implement and manage. They are designed to integrate Salesforce CRM data with common web services as well as a variety of common on-premise systems and databases and require very little training to set up and administer.
Sqware Peg began as a CRM solutions provider in 2003 and has been working exclusively ever since with Salesforce.com. Additionally, Sqware Peg enables Cloud solutions for Eloqua, Google, Financial Force and others. It will now benefit from reselling the Informatica family of cloud data integration solutions specifically designed to help customers integrate their systems with the data residing in various databases and applications.
The Informatica Cloud maximises the benefits of having the right data in the right place at the right time as business needs, technology, data volumes, and data integration challenges grow and change.
Shawn Stilwell, Managing Director, Sqware Peg, said, “Our new relationship with Informatica is a great move forward for Sqware Peg in the Asia Pacific region and for our hundreds of customers. Consuming enterprise integration tools on an on-demand, subscription basis has only recently become available and this means the addressable market is now much wider.
“Informatica has traditionally built and integrated their technology in an on-premise format and has deployed successfully to many large and international enterprises. Traditionally this required very powerful onsite infrastructure and implementation. This isn’t required now as these same tools are now driven through the browser. This geography is ready for a quality-driven, subscription-based cloud technology player like Informatica with its unique approach and Sqware Peg looks forward to this compelling and exciting partnership.”
Sqware Peg estimates there are hundreds of companies in Australia and New Zealand alone who are hungry for cloud integration service and in need of a more powerful subscription model. For as little as $1,000 per month, organisations can have real time two way integration between any SaaS or On Premise platform, Salesforce,com and a host system all implemented within a matter of weeks. In fact, Sqware Peg has already successfully deployed the technology in a few key accounts where multi-point host system integration was required for Salesforce.com.
“We were looking for a leading cloud systems integrator in Australia to take our business forward and realised that Sqware Peg uniquely understands the importance of integration to cloud computing success,” said Ron Papas, general manager, Informatica Cloud. “As data becomes more and more fragmented, Informatica Cloud Services empowers customers to access and integrate all their cloud data easily and cost-effectively. Working with Sqware Peg means customers will benefit from their successful track record, regional momentum and reputation for customer success.”
More than 650 salesforce.com customers run Informatica Cloud Services globally for bi-directional integration with other applications, platforms, databases and files – whether they reside in the cloud or on-premise. Informatica Cloud Services customers currently run over 30,000 integration jobs per day, moving and manipulating more than 6 billion rows of data per month.
Sqware Peg is a Platinum sponsor of the salesforce.com Cloudforce2 Australia events being staged in Melbourne on 27 May and in Sydney on 3 June. The company will be staging a competition for a prize which includes one way free integration to salesforce.com. The prize is sponsored by Informatica Cloud and Sqware Peg.

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.
