PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 7 — As the start of 2012 quickly approaches, enterprise architects and software developers are fleshing out plans for the coming year's IT projects. In support of this planning, WSO2 Co-founder and CTO Paul Fremantle will lead a technical webinar entitled, "WSO2 Quarterly Technical Update." The free one-hour webinar will run Thursday, December 15, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PST. For more information, visit wso2.org/library/webinars/2011/12/wso2-quarterly-technical-update-thursday-december.
The technical update webinar is designed for current WSO2 customers, as well as IT professionals who have been evaluating WSO2's middleware platforms for their on-premise and cloud deployments and want an update on future direction. The session will discuss recent advancements, as well as roadmaps for upcoming enhancements to WSO2 products, the platform and cloud services. Webinar topics will include:
· Updates on projects and solutions being built with WSO2 technology.
· New features in the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform.
· A review of recent improvements to the WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform and StratosLive platform-as-a-service (PaaS), which is hosted by WSO2 and powered by WSO2 Stratos software.
· Technical roadmaps and updates for WSO2 products, including the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus, WSO2 Application Server, WSO2 Governance Registry, WSO2 Identity Server, and more.
· A review of WSO2's approach to development and how to influence the roadmap.
Webinar presenter Paul Fremantle is WSO2 co-founder and CTO, vice president of the Apache Software Foundation Synapse Project, and co-chair of the OASIS Web Services Reliable eXchange Technical Committee.

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.

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.
