SAN DIEGO, Nov. 7 — Tabor Communications Inc., (TCI) publisher of HPCwire, HPC in the Cloud, Digital Manufacturing Report, and a leading international media, advertising, and communications company, announced today that it has appointed Tiffany Trader as its new editor for HPC in the Cloud.
"I could not ask for a more qualified individual with the experience and familiarity with the HPC, digital manufacturing, and cloud computing communities than Tiffany. Her deep understanding of compute-intensive technologies, combined with her writing ability made her selection for this role unquestionable," said Jeff Hyman, President and Group Publisher of Tabor Communications Inc. "Tiffany's captivating writing style, combined with her intimate knowledge of the high-tech industry is what we believe are the skills necessary to continue to expand our reach to a wider global audience. I am pleased that she has accepted this role and I look forward to her continued contributions as part of the editorial management team."
During her 5-year tenure with Tabor Communications, Trader has held the roles of associate editor for three other leading TCI publications; On-Demand Enterprise, HPCwire, TCI's flagship publication, and Digital Manufacturing Report. Trader played an integral role in the success of all three, working to support the expansion of the company's publication portfolio and to increase its combined readership base by over 50%. Former editor of HPC in the Cloud, Nicole Hemsoth, has accepted the role of editor for a new TCI publication. With her promotion to editor of HPC in the Cloud, Trader will assume ownership over all aspects of the publication's news, commentary, special features, and communications.
"I'm honored and excited to be given the opportunity to lead HPC in the Cloud as the editor," said Trader. "I will continue to build upon the reputation we have established to make HPC in the Cloud the leading publication of choice for the technical cloud community. I am deeply committed to our readers to uphold the level of editorial excellence that they have come to expect from HPC in the Cloud."
Trader brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from HPC, cloud computing, and technology publishing with her to HPC in the Cloud. Trader holds a bachelor's degree from San Diego State University, where she studied Linguistics and Computer Science.

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.
