AUSTIN, Texas, December 10, 2010 -- While virtualization technology has delivered many benefits, organizations that have increased their virtualization footprint have quickly discovered unique challenges and requirements not present in traditional physical environments. To address these challenges Hyper9, Inc. today published a new sponsored white paper “Top 5 Things You Need in a Virtualization Management Solution,” by noted vExpert, IT industry veteran, author and blogger Eric Siebert.
From performance management and capacity planning to identification of VM sprawl and storage I/O bottlenecks, virtualization management solutions provide a wide range of advantages. This white paper walks through the key differences between the management of virtual and physical environments and provides tips on how to select an effective virtualization management solution.
“Implementing a management solution that is designed specifically for virtual environments is critical to ensure you are monitoring the metrics and issues that are unique to virtual environments,” said Seibert. “This is essential to allow you to keep up with the higher rate-of-change and to scale as your virtual environment grows.”
Key topics covered in the white paper include:
How to use virtualization management tools to ensure optimal performance across your virtual environment.
How to leverage capacity planning to maintain sufficient levels and plan for future growth.
How to monitor VM lifecycles and growth patterns to proactively identify VM Sprawl.
How to use chargeback in a virtual environment to help control growth and track resource consumption.
How to eliminate storage I/O bottlenecks, one of the biggest threats to performance in a virtual environment.
Eric Siebert is an IT industry veteran, author and blogger with more than 25 years of experience, most recently specializing in server administration and virtualization. Siebert has published books including his most recent, "Maximum vSphere" from Pearson Publishing, and has authored training videos in the Train Signal Pro series. He also maintains his own VMware information website, vSphere-land.com, and is a regular blogger and feature article contributor on TechTarget's SearchServerVirtualization and SearchVMware websites. Siebert has presented at VMworld in 2008 and 2010 and has been recognized as a vExpert by VMware in 2009 and 2010.

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.

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.
