SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 27 -- Cloupia, a leading provider of cloud automation and management software, today announced Open Automation for Clouds for its customers and partners, allowing them to extend, add or enhance data center management and operations automation in addition to its “out of the box” Cloupia Unified Infrastructure Controller (CUIC) cloud and data center automation capabilities.
Cloupia helps organizations to smoothly evolve from static data center or virtual environments to private and public cloud environments and achieve the goals of elasticity, efficiency, cost savings and agility that businesses are expecting from IT today. Its flagship product, CUIC, provides comprehensive infrastructure control, provisioning, management and monitoring across physical, virtual and cloud environments using a single pane of glass.
Cloupia's new Open Automation for Clouds capability provides customers with a way to automatically add multiple infrastructure and cloud vendors as an extension of their data centers and allows users to take control of systems and applications with a minimum of engineering effort and without vendor lock-in. IT administrators can customize and automate many infrastructure administrative and operational tasks using the platform while allowing IT teams to build and execute repeatable physical and virtual infrastructure provisioning workflows without complex custom scripts and expensive system integration engagements.
"Typical data centers are heterogeneous in nature and no automation technology cannot be limited to a small set of protocols and systems," said Raju Penmetsa, CTO at Cloupia. "Open Automation for Clouds provides technology and service delivery partners, as well as customer administrators, with access to reports, analytics, workflows, triggers, chargeback and data acquisition information to properly service business users and operators. These tools are vital in helping an organization properly implement a dynamic IT infrastructure to reduce costs, simplify administration and better align IT departments with their business needs."
Cloupia is providing evaluation software, a software development kit, documentation and training for partners and customers adopting Open Automation for Clouds. Open Automation for Clouds has limited availability. Interested parties can become an Open Automation partner by contacting Cloupia at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cloupia solutions enable IT organizations to provision infrastructure consistently and automatically from pools of shared resources using a self-service portal. IT managers can rapidly provision resources ranging from a single virtual machine to complex multi-tier environments with physical and virtual servers and storage systems. By enabling seamless integration and management across heterogeneous hypervisor technologies and cloud vendors, Cloupia helps organizations leverage their IT investments and purchasing power to their maximum advantage.
Cloupia further simplifies data center management and operations with the recently released CloudGenie, a tablet-based data center orchestration application to manage and provision physical and virtual infrastructure. Targeting Apple IOS devices (iPad) initially, this app demonstrates ease of deployment and management for workloads running on cloud infrastructure.

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.
