The collaboration between OpenLogic and Rackspace allows:
"The Rackspace Cloud and CloudSwing are both built to handle the highly-flexible and on-demand environments that enterprises need to deploy in the cloud," said Ven Shanmugam, senior manager, Strategy and Corporate Development at Rackspace. "We welcome OpenLogic into our Cloud Tools community."
CloudSwing provides a complete open PaaS solution for enterprises seeking to deploy applications in the cloud. It offers an entirely customizable array of infrastructure, languages, and technology stacks, giving companies and developers the flexibility they need to choose the best platforms for all their cloud deployments. The first offering of its kind, CloudSwing is the only PaaS solution with built-in cost management tools to help enterprises understand and manage their cloud costs across multiple clouds. Based on open source technologies, CloudSwing is platform-agnostic and frees enterprises from the limitations of vendor lock-in associated with proprietary tools.
"We are excited to expand OpenLogic CloudSwing's momentum to the Rackspace Cloud customer ecosystem," said Kim Weins, senior vice president of marketing of OpenLogic. "CloudSwing has more than tripled the number of users in the first 60 days. As enterprises look to build customized PaaS environments in the Rackspace Cloud, we anticipate this growth to continue."

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.
