KANSAS CITY, MO., November 24, 2010 -- Spectrum Sales, the premier electronic manufacturer's sales and solutions representative firm in the Midwest, recently launched an energy efficient way to green up Kansas City. The new cloud technology, which Spectrum Sales started using, via MDL Technology, LLC, a Kansas City IT company, will increase energy efficiency, server storage and data protection.
Pat Powell, president of Spectrum Sales, said that the company was in need of a partner to help with cloud and IT management so they engaged with MDL Technology, LLC. "To me, the cloud is processing, services and storage out on the Internet. We are using it in place of our former server-based network at Spectrum Sales. Cloud is energy efficient, and now we do not require a server that consumes power. We kept important files and information plus backups on a server and ran our outlook.pst on each of our own computers. This resulted in two problems: server management which required time and expertise, and infrequent backups resulting in catastrophic losses of data when laptops inevitably died," said Mr. Powell.
Mark Dryer, president of MDL Technology, LLC, said, "Due to increased bandwidth and speed, more and more companies are able to take advantage of cloud technology. By utilizing cloud, companies do not burn as much energy, power or money to keep their IT equipment secure and affordable."

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.
