Attendees will learn how to gain a competitive edge when managing applications on private and hybrid clouds
RALEIGH, NC, Nov. 2 — rPath, the application engine provider for the private cloud, today announces that chief technology officer, Brett Adam, will be speaking at both Cloud Expo West, November 7-10, in Santa Clara, Calif., and the Cloud Channel Summit, November 7, in Mountain View, Calif. At each session, Adam will offer insights on how managed services providers (MSPs) and cloud stack vendors can differentiate their offering by delivering application clouds that give enterprises a way to manage applications in the cloud with consistency, reliability and speed.
Cloud Computing Expo
Cloud Channel Summit
These speaking engagements come on the heels of the launch of rPath Cloud Engine, new software that helps any private or hybrid cloud software stack ensure consistent, reliable, fast application delivery and update. In addition to end-to-end application management, rPath Cloud Engine plugs and plays into any cloud technology ecosystem, helping tech vendors, hosting providers, and MSPs who partner with rPath to differentiate their products to enterprise customers with bulletproof application delivery.
The first in the industry to realize this differentiation, rPath and Cisco offer the Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud (Cisco IA) software stack seamlessly integrated with the rPath Cloud Engine. This solution, which features a self-service portal, application automation and orchestration, is being used by Cisco to transform the company's private infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud, known as the Cisco IT Elastic Infrastructures (CITEIS) project, into an application cloud.

rPath is the application engine provider for the private cloud. Named a "Cool Vendor" in release management by Gartner in April 2011, rPath offers a Cloud Engine that is built on the battle-tested system automation platform of rPath X6 and features end-to-end application management. The solution boasts a model-driven approach that ensures rapid application delivery and eliminates vendor lock-in. rPath Cloud Engine seamlessly integrates into any cloud technology ecosystem, helping cloud providers, builders and buyers ensure a cloud that delivers consistency, reliability and speed. Headquartered in Raleigh, NC, rPath customers include many of the world's largest enterprises and managed service providers. For more information, visit www.rpath.com.
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.
