REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 5, 2011 -- Abiquo, the leading Enterprise Cloud Management software company, today announced its partnership with everis, a multi-national consulting company dedicated to defining, designing, and implementing business strategies for Global 2000 enterprises.
Everis’ Cloud computing technology service builds and implements private Cloud strategies, from architecture through management. Abiquo Enterprise Edition empowers everis to leverage existing and third party infrastructure resources, including heterogeneous compute, network, and storage resources to build private Clouds.
“Our customers want leading technology solutions that give them greater control and flexibility,” said Juan Carlos Ferrer, everis head of global cloud computing outsourcing. “We continue evaluating the other Cloud management solutions, but found that Abiquo’s business policy engine is unique. It makes implementing our strategies much easier and customers can use the policy engine to adapt to changing needs. Abiquo gives us the power to manage global infrastructure with heterogeneous environments, so we can recommend the same strategy for VMware users as we would for Hyper-V or open source users.”
Abiquo and everis will work jointly to market and implement private Clouds. In addition, Abiquo will leverage everis resources to expand their service and implementation capability throughout Europe and Latin America. The partnership gives everis the option to provide managed Cloud services to their customers or to implement private Cloud policies that enforce strategic goals.
Everis is seeing increasing demand for Cloud strategies from its European and Latin American customers, which is also reflected in recent research. According to a recent Frost & Sullivan end-user study, 50% of Latin American companies are already using some form of Cloud computing, and many more have plans to implement Cloud strategies in 2011. The Centre for Economics and Business Research calculated that €177.3 billion per year will be generated by 2015 if Europe’s five largest economies continue to adopt Cloud technology as expected.
“Enterprises in Europe and Latin America are looking for the best tools to design and implement their Cloud strategies,” said Pete Malcolm, CEO of Abiquo. “Abiquo’s business partnership with everis provides these new Cloud players with the means to develop, implement, and manage their Cloud strategies successfully.”
Abiquo is the leading Enterprise Cloud Management software company. Designed to meet strategic objectives, rather than as a temporary tactical fix, Abiquo is built on open standards, allowing organizations of all sizes to dramatically improve business agility, mitigate risk, and reduce costs. With Abiquo, organizations can use business policy to manage an entire, globally deployed computing infrastructure, comprising unlimited physical and Cloud resources including private, public and hybrid Clouds through a “single pane of glass”. As a result, Abiquo customers are able to significantly decrease the cost and complexity of managing their virtual IT environments, while maintaining control of the physical infrastructure and increasing agility to change hypervisors as needed.

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.
