IRVINE, Calif., May 19, 2011 -- Netlist, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announced that its HyperCloud memory module is certified with Nexenta Systems, Inc., the leader in OpenStorage solutions. 16GB HyperCloud memory modules were integrated, tested and validated with NexentaStor OpenStorage software, reinforcing the module's ability to support memory-intensive applications, such as virtualization and storage.
"Netlist's HyperCloud high-speed, high-capacity memory helps to deliver enhanced server utilization functionality and we are proud to add Netlist as a Technology Partner," says Jon Ash, Vice President of Sales, Nexenta Systems. "By combining Netlist's leading HyperCloud memory technology with Nexenta's leading OpenStorage software, we can provide cost-effective, high-performance storage that is a superior alternative to proprietary and legacy technologies."
"This certification exemplifies HyperCloud's benefits to virtualization applications in the Cloud Computing and Virtualization segments," said Steve McClure, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Netlist. "We are excited to work with Nexenta on delivering scalable virtualization solutions and improved system utilization."
Nexenta formally certifies both complete solutions sold by its reseller partners and solution components provided by its technology partners. Nexenta's Hardware Supported List (HSL) allows Nexenta partners to create unique and differentiated solutions based on their individual application needs and requirements. With NexentaStor, customers can save 70-80 percent over proprietary solutions as well as enjoy support of an open-source community that collectively possesses far greater resources than a single vendor. Nexenta's HSL is available at www.nexenta.com/corp/supported-hardware/hardware-supported-list.
HyperCloud memory will be demonstrated with Nexenta's NexentaStor OpenStorage software at this year's European User Conference in Amsterdam, taking place May 20, 2011.
Netlist, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLST) designs and manufactures high-performance, logic-based memory subsystems for datacenter server and high-performance computing and communications markets. Netlist's flagship products include HyperCloud, a memory module that breaks traditional memory barriers, and the NVvault family of products, including NVvault battery-free, a flash memory-based subsystem that enables data retention weeks following a disaster. The memory technologies are developed for applications in which high-speed, high-capacity memory, enhanced functionality, small form factor, and heat dissipation are key requirements. These applications include tower-servers, rack-mounted servers, blade servers, high-performance computing clusters, engineering workstations, and telecommunication equipment. Founded in 2000, Netlist is headquartered in Irvine, California, with manufacturing facilities in Suzhou, People's Republic of China.

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.
