SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 10, 2010 -- Cloud Application Platform developer GridGain Systems, Inc. today announced a multi-year strategic alliance with system integrator Fitech Laboratories that will extend GridGain's distribution to customers in Japan and China. Fitech Laboratories has the exclusive rights to resell GridGain's flagship software product in those two markets and will also provide necessary support, professional services and training to customers through regional partners as well as its group companies, FitechLabs K.K. in Tokyo and Fitech (Beijing) Software Ltd in Beijing.
GridGain's innovative Cloud Application Platform facilitates the development of highly scalable distributed applications that work natively on any managed infrastructure – from an Android-device to a large grid and cloud environment. GridGain's platform is the first to deliver all three key technologies in an integrated product that natively supports Java and Scala programming languages:
Computational Grids for MapReduce-style processing
Data Grids for distributed in-memory data caching
Auto-Scaling with Zero Deployment for unprecedented development productivity in managed environments like clouds and grids
"It is absolutely essential to partner with a locally proven system integrator when entering Asian markets. Western companies can rarely, if ever, do it alone due to cultural and business differences," said Nikita Ivanov, CEO of GridGain Systems. "Fitech is not only one of Japan's top Java-based system integrators for mission-critical financial systems, but also comfortable with the range of technologies involved in a product like GridGain. From compute grids and data grids to cloud auto-scaling, zero provisioning and deployment, and Java and Scala programming languages, Fitech has extensive expertise that will serve both us and our customers well."
Added Toshiyuki Matsushima, founder and CEO of Fitech Laboratories: "Our high-performance online trading products for financial institutions take full advantage of advanced distributed computing technology. GridGain's product for commercial cloud infrastructures requires many of the same skill sets, so we will be leveraging our years of experience to support GridGain projects for cutting-edge high-performance distributed systems."

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.
