10 finalists have been picked to present as this year's hottest cloud technology competition, taking place at CloudBeat 2011
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 29 — Today, GigaSpaces announced that it has been selected as one of the 10 finalists in the CloudBeat 2011 Innovation Showdown. Proving that the company has what it takes to stand-out in the crowd, GigaSpaces was picked by a panel of experts and advisors as one of the hottest companies in the cloud space. As a finalist, GigaSpaces will have the chance to present its Cloudify solution to over 500 influencers, investors, and press live at CloudBeat 2011.
GigaSpaces was selected as an innovator for its newest product offering, Cloudify, currently the only solution that enables real apps to migrate to any cloud without any code changes, and with full control. With its disruptive built-in recipes, Cloudify is the only truly independent and open platform that is able to bring even the most complex mission-critical apps to any cloud with the click of a button. With strategic partners in this space, including Microsoft, CA, Citrix, Cisco, Rackspace and others – GigaSpaces' technology is production-ready without forcing lock-in on any of those layers.
Hosted by VentureBeat, CloudBeat 2011 is taking place Nov. 30-Dec. 1 at the Hotel Sofitel in Redwood City, Calif. Using a customer-centric approach (vs. vendor-centric), the event will hone in on 12 case studies to dissect the most disruptive examples across all layers of the cloud. Join in for an information-packed two days that will offer actionable lessons and networking opportunities, as industry leaders define the key processes and architectures companies must put in place in order to survive and prosper.
There is still time to register for CloudBeat 2011 and see Adi Paz, executive vice president of marketing and business development, and Uri Cohen, vice president, product management of GigaSpaces present in-person. Head here to find out details: http://venturebeat.com/events/cloudbeat2011/.

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.
