Deployments being driven by the accelerated adoption of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS according to Synergy
RENO, Nev., Nov 28 — Synergy Research Group announces the publication of its Cloud Market Share Report, which provides quarterly market shares, sizing, and forecasts for the public and private cloud equipment markets. The foundation of Synergy's segmentation includes the networking, computing, and storage platforms deployed for private cloud, public cloud (VPN), and public cloud (non-VPN).
Synergy's report shows the cloud equipment market for the first half of 2011 exceeded $17B in sales. The fastest growing segment includes Private Cloud platforms, which is growing at over 30 percent annual growth. Synergy defines a Private Cloud platform as a virtualized datacenter, which resides behind an organization's firewall. Synergy believes this growth will continue as larger Enterprises realize the economies of scale and other cost benefits associated with the virtualization of their datacenters.
Today, Public Cloud platforms represent the biggest share of Cloud Equipment spending, representing 56 percent in the first half of 2011. Synergy believes Public Cloud deployments could potentially experience exponential growth in the coming years as IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS gain wider usage by both consumers and businesses.
"Cloud unleashes the power of utility computing that has never been seen before and it becomes a game changer when matched with advanced communications and applications," said Jeremy Duke, founder & chief analyst, Synergy Research Group. "From small start ups being able to access massive scale computing facilities to new cloud-based consumer services, cloud will continue to open up a wealth of opportunities for innovation."

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.
