SAN FRANCISCO-- Feb. 10, 2011 -- Joyent, the leading global provider of cloud computing solutions and technologies, and m2mi, (Machine-to-Machine Intelligence Corporation), a maker of network orchestration and automation products in the cloud M2M market, announced a partnership today. The combination of Joyent’s SmartDataCenter 6.0, including a native Node.js run time and DTrace latency introspection, with m2mi’s patented network virtualization and Machine-to-Machine technologies will enable Joyent and m2mi to jointly deliver federated cloud solutions to select customers that have existing and disparate data center locations, multi-vendor equipment and are interested in completely comprehending their datacenter infrastructure.
“We are working with m2mi, the leader in Machine-To-Machine Cloud solutions, to create a unique value for the datacenter. The network is one of the hardest components of the cloud to operate and automate correctly because it requires a complex understanding of orchestration and multi-vendor interoperability. The product of our collaboration will enable customers with complex requirements and multi-vendor datacenters to fully leverage the power of the cloud. They gain the benefits of Joyent’s cloud operating system with introspection tools for root cause analysis, and the security and visibility that is provided by a federated view of infrastructure” said David Young, CEO of Joyent.
With the growth of Joyent’s public and private cloud, the partnership with m2mi will add Machine-To-Machine services to Joyent’s already comprehensive Infrastructure-as-a-Service Platform. Specifically, these services will enable implementation of automated rapid provisioning and change management, as well as advanced security, responsive performance, autonomous SLA and compliance services throughout Joyent’s cloud technology stack.
“We anticipate great customer benefits from this partnership. Joyent has a comprehensive offering for both the public and private clouds. In addition to meeting growing demands in their expanding public cloud, we look forward to helping Joyent monetize its cloud network with innovative new services,” said m2mi’s CEO Geoff Brown.

m2mi, headquartered at NASA Research Park, Silicon Valley is a global leader in Machine-To-Machine technologies for Enterprise Cloud and Grid environments, providing Network Orchestration, Data Center Automation and patented Cloud Security products.
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.
