ATLANTA, GA, August 9 -- Searchlight Solutions Ltd. today announces its subsidiary, Linux Labs International, Inc., has recently completed a key upgrade of its proprietary NimbusOS for use as the Operating System for its High Performance Cloud Computing ("HPC2") service. Linux Labs NimbusOS was developed to be compatible and configurable for almost all HPC applications.
This recently finalized upgrade is an important milestone in preparing for the formal launch of the Company's HPC2 Service. The modified NimbusOS will run the servers that will allow customers to run their HPC applications.
Company Management stated: "We are pleased with the recent completion of our NimbusOS upgrade. We look forward to achieving more milestones as we move towards an official launch of our HPC2 Services. The cloud computing market has a bright future and we feel we are on our way to being well positioned to take advantage of the opportunity."
Cloud computing in general terms is not so much a new technology as it is a new delivery model, but its impact will be enormous. The following provides insight from research analysts that are bullish on the future growth of the cloud computing space:
-- AMI Partners has a clear outlook for cloud computing, forecasting U.S.
spending on all cloud services at $49 billion by 2015 by SMB
organizations alone. Factor in probable enterprise spending (usually
set at 55 percent to SMBs' 45 percent), and you're around $110 billion
annually. But that's just the U.S. Figure about double that for the
global spend, and the AMI number could top $200 billion.
-- Gartner, the analyst firm of choice for many enterprises, is bullish
on cloud computing adoption. Like IDC, Gartner believes cloud
computing will be big, with nearly every Fortune 500 company having at
least one business-critical application "in the cloud" by 2015.

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.
