ORLANDO, Fla., November 9, 2010 -- Dassault Systèmes (Paris:DSY) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) today announced that its subsidiary Exalead, a global leader of information access solutions and search-based applications, has been selected by the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center (CAC) to speed access to critical military information. The CAC -Fort Leavenworth, Kansas- is using Exalead CloudView as their primary search engine for information and documents in Microsoft SharePoint.
This announcement is another illustration of the continuous commitment of Exalead to the government sector, where 100% accurate, comprehensive, secure and instant access to huge volume of both structured and non structured information is required. Exalead Cloudview solution is the only open search-based platform providing the speed, scalability and flexibility required for these highly constrained environments, whether it is inside secured data warehouses or on the web.
A critical part of CAC’s mission is to provide the U.S. Army easy access to tens of thousands of current documents, as well as documents dating back decades. CAC uses Microsoft SharePoint to enable collaboration to improve business processes – but wanted to boost productivity by improving search engine functionality.
Previously, CAC users often spent hours looking for documents in SharePoint. With Exalead, these same documents can be found in seconds.
CAC chose Exalead’s search-based application as its SharePoint search engine for several reasons, including:
Faceted navigation improves speed and effectiveness of searches: Exalead’s easy-to-navigate user interface, especially the multi-faceted search, makes finding materials and information much faster by showing more relevant information instantly using the Exalead unique award winning index technology.
Certificate of Network Worthiness (CoN): Exalead is currently being evaluated for CoN, a requirement for all enterprise software products that operate in the Army Enterprise Infrastructure network. CoN certificates verify that software meets the highest standards for security, interoperability and sustainability. Exalead’s CoN tracking code is NETSUB-08454.
Multiple security controls and integration: CAC requires the utmost in security and found that Exalead cloudview platform provides the flexibility necessary to meet all the requirements, including integration with the Department of Defense Common Access Card smart cards issued to active-duty military personnel, reserve personnel, civilian employees, other non-DoD government employees, state employees of the National Guard, and eligible contractor personnel.

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
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.
