High-end IceWEB Unified Storage System designed for high performance, continuous availability and zero data loss
STERLING, Va., Dec. 7 — IceWEB, Inc., www.IceWEB.com, a leading provider of Unified Data Storage and building blocks for cloud storage networks, announced today its new Model 6500 High Performance and High-Availability Cluster Unified Storage Platform. With dual, multiprocessor controllers, redundant nodes, shared storage and no single-point of failure, the Model 6500 Cluster:
The Model 6500 Cluster utilizes storage volume sharing and its dual, multiprocessor storage controllers monitor each other for failures — with heartbeats, network monitoring and fencing. Neither controller is specifically designated to be the "primary" or "secondary controller." Both can be actively managing shared storage, although any given volume is owned by only one controller at any time.
The unique combination of dual multiprocessor controllers; clustering, CRC and the use of hybrid-storage pool SSD caching makes the Model 6500 Cluster ideal for high-performance, I/O intensive applications and for high-availability mission-critical applications.
"We're seeing an exploding market for faster, larger, fail-safe unified storage platforms from customers with critical business data and challenging workloads," said Tim McNamee, IceWEB VP of Sales. "The Model 6500 Cluster is designed to handle these demanding workloads, with zero unplanned downtime and nearly unlimited scalability."
With prices starting at under $45,000, the Model 6500 is available now. All IceWEB Unified Storage Platforms are available through the Company's exclusive value-added distributor Promark Technology (800-634-0255). Promark markets IceWEB products throughout the United States through its nationwide network of 1,200 channel partners. For more information, visit www.promarktech.com.

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 private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.

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.
