ISC Cloud '11 in Mannheim, Germany is just around the corner. We caught up with the event's chairman, Wolfgang Getzsch to find out what to expect.
Steve Campbell spent time this week speaking with Tim McIntyre from StackIQ, which was once called ClusterCorp.
The upcoming ISC Cloud '11 conference will bring some the world’s research and large-scale enterprise cloud computing luminaries under one roof to discuss issues ranging from HPC cloud performance, to security and compliance, to explorations of user experiences.
Los Alamos National Lab recently announced their contract with Locus Technologies to outsource environmental management to a cloud-based service provider. We spoke with Locus CEO, Neno Duplan about what LANL might gain--and how this provides an interesting software as a service use case.
Microsoft's cloud power has brought cloud computing closer to home, but what are the real associations for the source of that power when considered in the context of a license-based IT giant?
As pharmaceutical companies grow more comfortable with the cloud concept, services providing outsourcing of discovery and collaboration are set to grow.
Big data and cloud computing are often being used in the same sentence, even though there are still some barriers that separate the two. We talked to Vineet Tyagi from Impetus Technologies to learn more...
Scott Clark argues that the more similar that we can make cloud infrastructures to the enterprise infrastructures we have today, the more comfortable customers will be with using cloud from a security perspective.

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 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.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
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.
