Engineering experts will share case studies about enterprises using OpenStack
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 6 — Executives of Mirantis, a leader in engineering services for OpenStack Cloud, will describe how its customers are deploying OpenStack technology to attendees of Cloud Connect 2012, February 13-16 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Alex Freedland, co-founder and chairman, Adrian Ionel, CEO, and Boris Renski, co-founder and CMO will share case studies of OpenStack Cloud implementation. Mirantis has recently completed several projects to help companies solve a range of IT challenges, using OpenStack in areas that range from storage to HPC.
OpenStack software is an open source platform for building private and public infrastructure clouds. More than 145 leading companies participate in the OpenStack project, including AMD, Cisco, Citrix, Dell, HP, Intel, and Microsoft. It originally started with NASA and Rackspace.
Mirantis has been an active member of the OpenStack community since its inception and has contributed multiple code commits to the OpenStack Compute and Identity projects. Mirantis is also one of the organizers of the Bay Area's OpenStack user group, hosting the quarterly community events in Silicon Valley. This OpenStack community grew from 100 to more than 900 members in less than nine months in 2011. Mirantis is also focused on expanding the OpenStack community in Russia because of the growing interest there among developers.
Also at the conference, Mirantis will introduce a new training program on OpenStack technology. The much-needed program will expand the pool of skilled engineering talent and expertise in OpenStack software throughout the industry.
Mirantis is an engineering services company delivering open source application infrastructure and OpenStack expertise. Clients include Cisco, GE Money and Agilent. The company is headquartered in Mountain View, Calif., and currently houses one of the largest groups of experts in OpenStack technology under a single roof. Mirantis works with middleware vendors, compute infrastructure companies and Fortune 1000 enterprises, helping them to extract value from OpenStack software. http://www.mirantis.com.
About Cloud Connect
Cloud Connect, produced by UBM TechWeb, is the defining event of the cloud computing industry. As both a conference and an exhibition, Cloud Connect's goal is to chart the course of cloud computing's development by bringing together enterprise IT professionals, developers, infrastructure and service providers and cloud computing innovators. UBM TechWeb has produced cloud events that define and frame cloud computing discussions since June 2008, and recently expanded the Cloud Connect event brand to Chicago and Bangalore, India, in addition to the flagship Santa Clara event. Cloud Connect is a one-of-a-kind event that encompasses the entire cloud computing ecosystem featuring a Launch Pad program, IT & Developer workshops and a full conference program.

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.
