SAN FRANCISCO, September 2, 2010 -- Jamcracker, the unified cloud services delivery and management company, and Eucalyptus Systems, creators of the leading open source private cloud platform, today announced an integration that enables enterprises to self-provision Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) private and hybrid clouds. The integration of the Jamcracker and Eucalyptus platforms allows IT departments to automate the process of procuring the resources and building infrastructure clouds. Eucalyptus Systems and Jamcracker are highlighting this new solution at the VMworld 2010 conference held this week.
The Jamcracker Platform Enterprise Edition enables organizations to provision and control both public and private cloud services. Meanwhile, the Eucalyptus cloud platform allows IT departments to set up their own private clouds and move workloads among internal servers, or to and from Amazon Web Services (AWS). The integration of both platforms provides a turnkey solution for procuring through Jamcracker all the resources required to implement scalable IaaS-style private and hybrid clouds using the Eucalyptus platform.
“The adoption of private and hybrid cloud technologies is growing rapidly as a means for large enterprises to access the efficiencies of public clouds and maintain the security advantages of on-premise clouds,” said Steve Crawford, vice president of marketing and business development for Jamcracker. “Through this partnership with Eucalyptus Systems, we are providing organizations with a pre-integrated solution that makes it easy to centralize the resource provisioning, creation, and management of private clouds as wells as hybrid clouds that can tap computing resources in the public cloud.”
“Self service is essential for any cloud infrastructure, and Jamcracker provides a proven solution that can help businesses unify IT services across private, hybrid and public clouds and deliver them in a single point of provisioning for end-users,” said Matt Reid, vice president of sales and marketing at Eucalyptus Systems. “We welcome Jamcracker to the growing ecosystem of partner solutions that extend the benefits of the Eucalyptus cloud platform.”
About Jamcracker Platform Enterprise Edition
Jamcracker Platform Enterprise Edition enables IT departments to become “Cloud Services Brokers,” offering any combination of cloud-based services to their organization including private and public IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions.
To allow enterprises to unify command and control of disparate cloud services, the Jamcracker Platform gives IT organizations the ability to create a catalogue of aggregated services which is backed with unified provisioning, access control, administration, auditing, monitoring, support and departmental chargeback capabilities. It is based on the Jamcracker Services Delivery Network (JSDN), a multi-tiered and multi-tenant cloud delivery and management solution currently used by hundreds of service providers and cloud providers around the world to aggregate, deliver and manage cloud services.

About Eucalyptus Systems, Inc.
Eucalyptus Systems develops enterprise-grade technology solutions built on the open source Eucalyptus software for private and hybrid cloud computing. Originally developed as part of an NSF-funded academic research project at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Eucalyptus is quickly becoming the standard for private, on-premise cloud computing, delivering the cost efficiencies and scalability of a cloud architecture with the security and control of deploying on an organization’s own IT infrastructure. Eucalyptus is available in two editions: open source Eucalyptus and the Eucalyptus Enterprise Edition (EE), commercial, enterprise-grade infrastructure software designed for large-scale deployments. For more information about Eucalyptus, please visit http://www.eucalyptus.com.
Jamcracker enables Service Providers, Cloud Services vendors and Enterprise IT organizations to unify the delivery and management of disparate cloud services. Jamcracker was founded in 1999 by K.B. "Chandra" Chandrasekhar, the founder of Exodus Communications and chairman of e4e Services. For more information on Jamcracker visit www.jamcracker.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.
