MADRID, January 13, 2011 -- C12G Labs announced today the creation of specialized support services to customers and partners in specific application domains, such as the High Performance Computing, Hosting and Telecom industries. HPCcloud.com is the first of these new support service programs targeted to specific business or industry domains that has been created to give expert advice on OpenNebulaPro to organizations using computer clusters to solve advanced computation problems.
OpenNebula is being used by many supercomputing and leading research centers to build private, public and hybrid clouds for hosting virtualized computational environments, such as batch farms and computing clusters, or for providing users with new "HPC as a service" resource provisioning models. Cloud computing enables the execution of flexible and elastic cluster and high performance computing services on demand while reducing the associated cost of building the datacenter infrastructure.
C12G's HPCcloud specialized support team has extensive and deep expertise in configuring OpenNebula clouds to address the needs of cluster and high performance computing environments. Besides the standard technical support, the new program provides guidance about different architectural solutions for HPC cloud computing, and helps to define the computing services for their execution in the cloud and to integrate higher-level tools in computing environments with OpenNebulaPro.
OpenNebula is the most advanced open-source platform for building IaaS clouds, offering unique features for cloud management and providing the integration capabilities that many enterprise IT shops need for internal cloud adoption. OpenNebula is the result of many years of research and development in scalable management of virtual machines on large-scale distributed infrastructures in collaboration with leading IT companies.

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.
