Feb. 16 — Entensys, a leading Russian software developer dealing in Internet security solution, is glad to announce the full-fledged release of GateWall DNS Filter Cloud, its cloud-based service on Amazon EC2 platform.
GateWall DNS Filter Cloud is a cloud solution that filters DNS-requests and thus blocks dangerous or non-target resources, and provides analysis of Internet usage. Entensys URL Filtering technology is utilized in the service.
Cloud services are now a global trend and offer multiple benefits. Companies using such solutions can avoid the need to support their own servers, and still enjoy a much greater level of reliability and data security.
Today, users have a whole range of free Internet filtering solutions before them. The main drawback of such solutions though is a very limited database of websites. As a rule, these include only the most popular Internet resources, and that approach does not provide the required level of threat protection. GateWall DNS Filter Cloud uses a website database that lists more than 500 million Internet resources, divided by categories for greater operating convenience. For example, users can block access to such website groups as "Social Networks," "Job Search," etc.
With the cloud-based GateWall DNS Filter service, users have access to reporting and analysis, as well as custom filter settings. The solution operates on the Amazon EC2 platform, which offers high efficiency and 99.99% reliability.
"Soon working in a 'cloud' will be just as common for a modern person as using a cell phone to communicate, for example," said Dmitry Kurashev, Entensys CEO. "We are rapidly moving towards the world where companies will no longer have to use their own servers, and the popularity of GateWall DNS Filter Cloud (even during testing), is more evidence of this trend."
The user operates the cloud service through a special account profile available after registration and connection. User-friendly interface and a system of prompts will help you to find your way about GateWall DNS Filter Cloud.
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.

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.
