LISLE, Ill., August 18, 2010 -- A team of cloud computing experts from Univa and Intel are hosting a free webcast on August 19, 2010 to discuss their top five lessons learned from planning and implementing hybrid cloud solutions.
The webcast, titled “Top 5 Must-Haves for Hybrid Cloud Computing,” will address best practices for implementing a hybrid cloud, where the computing environment consists of a mixture of internal and external resources. Cloud technology experts from Intel and Univa will present their collective top five lessons learned in hybrid cloud planning and execution phases, including must-have technologies and pitfalls to avoid.
The event is crafted for IT directors or executives who are seeking to learn what is possible with hybrid cloud computing today and the necessary steps for making this approach viable.
* Billy Cox, director of Cloud Strategy and Planning, Software Solutions Group, Intel Corporation
* Bill Bryce, vice president of Products, Univa
These presenters will be joined by a team of experts who will participate in discussion and Q&A:
* Sinisa Veseli, Solutions Architect, Univa
* Rekha Raghu, Technical Program Manager, Intel Corporation
* Trevor Cooper, Program Manager, Cloud Lab, Intel Corporation
“The majority of organizations we talk to find that a hybrid model makes the most sense for their computing needs,” said Bryce. “Now that Univa has made it possible to migrate workload seamlessly across multiple internal and external resources based on policies and requirements, the option to dynamically flex the computing environment into an external cloud becomes much more realistic and attractive.”
“For this session, we have distilled many of the lessons Intel has learned from working with vendors like Univa in the Cloud Builder program,” said Cox. “Participants will find these recommendations extremely practical and valuable as we go beyond the obvious to explore what really works and what doesn’t when it comes to hybrid cloud infrastructures.”

Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
Cloud computing has become mainstream in today’s HPC world. In order to enable the HPC researchers who currently work with large distributed computing systems, to bring their expertise to cloud computing, it is essential to provide them with easier means of applying their knowledge.

The San Diego Supercomputer Center launched a public cloud system for universities in the area designed specifically to run on commodity hardware with high performance solid-state drives. The center, which currently holds 5.5 PB of raw storage, is open to educational and research users in the University of California.
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.
