BOULDER, CO., September 28, 2010 -- Massively Parallel Technologies, Inc. (MPT) today unveiled industry's first application ecosystem software for modern cloud computing environments. In the emerging "app-centric" world of the internet, the Blue Cheetah™ application ecosystem is suitable for a wide variety of industries such as massive multi-player gaming, cloud computing, business analytics, or numerically intensive applications. It is comprised of multiple interlocking software products, the first of which, "Blue Cheetah - Cub," was released today in beta form.
"The Blue Cheetah application ecosystem is first to provide a single environment for both creation and monetization of highly optimized modular applications," said Bobbi Hazard, CEO of MPT. "Cloud computing and multi-core processors provide an immense potential for high performance and operational efficiency, but they create new problems for application development and commerce. MPT solves these problems with a new holistic solution that goes well beyond existing products."
With a growing patent portfolio, currently standing at 400+ claims (issued and pending), MPT draws from a rich technological foundation to significantly improve developer productivity and enhance user experience. A host of challenges such as organization of developer communities, application creation, optimization, parallelization, digital rights management, monetization, and revenue sharing are solved by the Blue Cheetah application ecosystem.
"Compilers, libraries, and app stores are not enough for today's developers," said Kevin Howard, CTO and co-founder of MPT. "A complete environment is a must. The Blue Cheetah application ecosystem is that environment."
An announcement event for the Blue Cheetah application ecosystem will be held on Tuesday 28 September, 2010, at the ASU SkySong, Scottsdale Innovation Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. The event will feature Dr. Gene Amdahl, founder of Amdahl Corporation, member of the scientific advisory board of MPT, and author of Amdahl's Law of parallel processing. A live webcast of the event will be available at http://ustream.tv/channel/massivelyparallel starting at 3 PM Pacific time. Additional information is available at MPT's web site: www.massivelyparallel.com.
About Massively Parallel Computing
Massively Parallel Technologies (MPT) has conceived of a revolutionary software ecosystem that radically simplifies application development and improves user experience. Cloud computing and multi-core processors offer massive opportunities for performance and efficiency, but they create a significant problem in application creation, collaboration, optimization, rights management, access, and monetization. MPT solves that problem.

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 private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.

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.
