ATLANTA, April 13, 2011 -- Asankya, Inc., the application delivery leader for network-intensive applications, announced today that dinCloud has selected Asankya to accelerate cloud storage services. Based in Los Angeles, CA, dinCloud delivers a leading suite of Cloud based services for Cloud Storage and Hosted Virtual Desktops, among other services.
Latency and middle-mile Internet bottlenecks cause large media file transfers to be unacceptably slow, negatively impacting customer aspirations. With the use of Asankya's RAPID solution, dinCloud is able to significantly increase the throughput of file transfers and thereby deliver a superior cloud storage environment. Asankya's ability to accelerate encrypted traffic – another critical feature - allows dinCloud to maintain their application security without complex layers of connectivity.
"Being able to transmit large volumes of cloud content and data quickly and efficiently for customers is critical," explains dinCloud's Chief Technology Officer, Mike Chase. "We strive to be the innovative leader in the market, so we are constantly enhancing our solutions to meet the current and future requirements of our customers. Asankya has provided a cost-effective cloud Internet connection solution and has allowed us to improve our throughput significantly."
Matt Ashton, IT Director at CIS Hollywood (a wholly owned affiliate of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group) stated, "The performance of the Asankya RAPID technology was truly amazing, the testing done by dinCloud using 3D media data produced a significantly measurable performance improvement over our standard data transfer methods."
"Even though dinCloud already has innovative and robust cloud storage solutions, they continue to innovate and improve their offerings," states Scott Ryan, CEO of Asankya. "We are excited to help dinCloud enhance their cloud storage offering."
Asankya operates the RAPIDnet Application Delivery Network (ADN) service. RAPIDnet provides service globally to Asankya's commercial and U.S. Federal customers.
Asankya is the premier application delivery partner for network-intensive Internet applications. The company's patented technology powers the RAPIDnet Application Delivery Network (ADN). RAPIDnet is utilized by leading providers of Stoarge-aaS, online file servers, virtual desktops, private enterprise applications, and by agencies of the U.S. Federal government. Asankya is venture-backed by Veritas Venture Partners, In-Q-Tel, Georgia Research Alliance, Seraph Group and Ridgewood Advisors. Asankya is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

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.
