Cloud computing concept meets supercharged open-source network security tools at SC10
REDLANDS, Calif., November 12, 2010 -- MetaFlows, Inc., a startup focused on leveraging emerging cloud/virtualization technologies for the next generation of network security solutions, will debut an innovative network security monitoring system as part of the SC10 networking infrastructure called "SCinet". By monitoring SCinet's diverse and high throughput network, MetaFlows aims to demonstrate that its new network security monitoring ("NSM") system, the world's first fully SaaS-based system, is "ready for the big leagues." If successful, it would also signal the realization of a new cost-cutting paradigm shift the network security industry -- and its patrons -- have been waiting for.
Founded upon battle-hardened, open-source resources (Emerging Threats signatures, Cyber-TA's BotHunter dialog-based correlator, Sourcefire's Snort VRT, etc.), MetaFlows' NSM reconciles and ranks IDS, flow, and active (local And global) intelligence through a revolutionary predictive global correlation system based on Google's page ranking algorithm, better revealing true positives while significantly cutting down on false-positive clutter. MetaFlows' NSM then delivers and unifies these results, along with log management, through the world's first fully SaaS-based, real-time security console with easy-to-use forensic tools for deep event analysis. To cap it all off, MetaFlows' Open-Sensor Technology helps NSM subscribers save thousands more dollars per year by granting them the ability to use almost any off-the-shelf sensor hardware they prefer or, via Linux/FreeBSD or virtual machines, use their preexisting hardware.
"At SC10, we expect to show the world that these technologies are now fully matured and able to handle the most demanding of environments," said Livio Ricciulli, founder and chief scientist of MetaFlows. "The HPC community should find our fully SaaS-based security console and predictive global correlation technologies especially interesting, because they afford HPC admins and their MSSPs the levels of secure mobility and efficiency they've always needed but have never seen before."
MetaFlows' NSM will be active throughout SC10, and MetaFlows Chief Scientist, Livio Ricciulli, will be available to answer any questions you might have about it, November 14th through the 19th.
If you are interested in a live demonstration of MetaFlows NSM while at SC10, Livio Ricciulli would be happy to personally demo the system and get your feedback. Simply RSVP with MetaFlows' press contact, Jude Calvillo (email@example.com), to arrange a meeting.

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.
