CUPERTINO, Calif., September 28, 2010 -- Zend Technologies, the PHP Company, announced a new partnership with RightScale, the leader in cloud computing management. With this new partnership, development teams will be able to deliver PHP applications faster by leveraging the productivity and performance gains offered by Zend Server through RightScale's open and flexible cloud management platform.
RightScale today launched the RightScale Development and Test Solution Pack — a cloud management solution designed to help software development and testing teams more easily provision and use cloud computing resources to improve software quality and speed time-to-market.
The PHP stack in the new RightScale Development and Test Solution Pack will include Zend Server, Zend's cloud-ready PHP application stack, which comprises PHP, Zend Framework, extensions and drivers, as well as a host of features that help developers run, debug and optimize their PHP applications.
The new offering addresses the need of IT organizations to reduce the time, hassle and risk associated with managing multiple development and test environments. Developers and testers can now quickly and easily provision a complete PHP cloud-based environment based on Zend Server using RightScale's self-service portal. Developers use the Zend Studio IDE to build their applications locally, leverage Zend Framework components to access a variety of cloud services, and debug their applications on a Zend Server instance running in the cloud.
"RightScale leverages the power of cloud computing to deliver flexibility and consistency at the infrastructure level. Zend's server products add the application-level infrastructure components required to realize the full benefits of the cloud," said Eldad Maniv, Senior Vice President of Products and Marketing at Zend. "PHP has been broadly adopted for the productivity gains it brings to Web application development. The partnership between Zend and RightScale facilitates another leap in productivity that many developers will find valuable."
"PHP is one of the most commonly used languages for cloud application deployments," noted Betsy Zikakis, Vice President at RightScale. "By partnering with Zend, we can offer PHP professionals an easy and safe path into cloud computing. With the RightScale Solution Pack for Development and Test, they can gain fast access to all the cloud computing resources they need while using Zend Server to run and debug their applications. The combination of RightScale and Zend products helps developers get software into the hands of users faster."

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.
