NEWBURYPORT, MA., June 2, 2010 -- AgilePath Corporation, a leading IT management consulting firm, today announced the release of its "Cloud Computing Playbook™ Business Discovery Template" for complementary download from www.agile-path.com. AgilePath's "Cloud Computing Playbook™ Business Discovery Template" describes the necessary information to complete a Cloud Computing assessment and determine an organization's Cloud computing readiness. In addition, AgilePath is offering services bundles with the Cloud computing assessment template, including a one-day Cloud Jumpstart package, a two-day Cloud Mentoring package, and a five-day Cloud Facilitation package to accelerate and guide the completion of the Cloud Computing Assessment.
In addition, AgilePath is releasing a new whitepaper entitled "A Pragmatic Cloud Computing Reference Model." This new whitepaper provides an overview of the Cloud Computing Reference Model (CC-RM) that was developed in Mr. Marks' new book, "Executive's Guide to Cloud Computing," co-Authored with Bob Lozano, Founder of Appistry. The Cloud Computing Reference Model has been successfully applied in Federal Government and Commercial organizations, and provides a crucial planning and architecture framework to accelerate the migration to Cloud computing.
"We are pleased to offer our Cloud computing thought leadership in the form of our 'Cloud Computing Playbook™ Business Discovery Template' and the Cloud Computing Reference Model whitepaper," said Eric Marks, Founder, President and CEO of AgilePath Corporation. "AgilePath will continue to release additional Cloud Computing Playbook™ artifacts and thought leadership materials to facilitate broader industry adoption of Cloud computing to solve pressing business challenges."
To support the release of "A Pragmatic Cloud Computing Reference Model" and "Executive's Guide to Cloud Computing," AgilePath and Appistry announced a series of joint Webinars to focus on key themes from the book, such as the compelling value proposition of cloud computing, how to get started, and how to achieve agility, scalability and efficiency with both private and public clouds. These will be scheduled during June - August 2010, and focus on the following topics:
*The Cloud Adoption Lifecycle: June 17
*Cloud Architecture, Modeling and Design: July 15
*The Move Towards Big Data: Aug 12
Attendees are eligible to win a copy of "Executive's Guide to Cloud Computing." To view the Cloud Computing Webinar schedule, visit www.agile-path.com.

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.
