BELMONT, CA, September 7 -– Vyatta, the leader in software-based networking for physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures, today announced that Vyatta Network OS virtual machines has been selected by Data Dimensions, a leading provider of business process outsourcing and information technology, to secure its enterprise-level hosting environment, ddCloud.
"With the virtual network security solution delivered by Vyatta, we are able to protect our customers' data on the hypervisor instead of with costly hardware appliances," said Mike Heller, vice president of IT at Data Dimensions. "Vyatta's ability to deliver complete network functionality in an optimized virtual machine has enabled us to reduce our CapEx and scale our service offerings, resulting in better service from us and better pricing for our customers."
In order to deliver on the business benefits of cloud computing, Vyatta has evolved the networking layer to easily be deployed as an application in the cloud. Vyatta's unique approach to delivering core routing and network security as software and virtual machines simplifies enterprise migration to the cloud by enabling complete replication of the security and traffic management policies.
Data Dimensions deploys Vyatta virtual machines on a VMware ESX hypervisor to isolate customer data within their cloud environment and provide secure remote access for customers to manage their cloud applications. Offering cloud-based network security that leverages Vyatta's stateful firewall and point-to-point IPSec VPN provides a cost-effective, yet powerful add-on service to the ddCloud environment.
"Only Vyatta provides a complete, enterprise-class security solution set that can be provisioned, licensed, billed and scaled on-demand, truly presenting the network as an application," said Sheen Khoury, SVP of sales and field operations at Vyatta. "Like Data Dimensions, hosting providers are making the move to virtual environments because of the flexibility and cost benefits provided; Vyatta compounds those benefits as the industry leader in enabling the virtualization of the network as well."
Vyatta is disrupting the networking industry by delivering a software-based network operating system that is portable to standard x86 hardware as well as common virtualization and cloud computing platforms. Vyatta software provides a complete enterprise-class routing and security suite capable of uniquely addressing the next-generation infrastructure requirements of flexibility, on-demand delivery and platform independence. Thousands of physical and virtual infrastructures around the world, from small enterprise to Fortune 500 customers, are connected and protected by Vyatta.

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.

he 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.
