SEATTLE, Feb. 24 — Leading companies in cloud computing are slated to deliver keynotes, user case studies and hands-on tutorials at Seattle's newest and largest cloud computing conference.
CloudFair 2012 Cloud Computing Conference and Expo will feature more than 40 sessions and 10 workshops as part of its three-day event at the Sheraton Seattle from April 17 through 19. Selected keynotes and sessions include:
Other speakers at CloudFair 2012 include:
CloudFair 2012 offers three days of workshops, tutorials, keynotes and breakout sessions, all focused on giving business and technical leadership the information and resources they need to map out a migration path to cloud that fits their unique circumstances. The second and third days offer a mix of keynotes and tracks targeting infrastructure and application developers, security best practices, end-user education and the business opportunities cloud makes possible beyond cost savings. The second and third days will also feature an expo hall. Attendees can choose from more than 40 sessions and 10 hands-on workshops.
Media and Analyst Passes
Media passes are available for journalists employed or on contract with blogs or publications covering the cloud computing industry. Analyst passes are available for those engaged substantially in the development of commercial research covering the cloud computing space. Contact Kent Barnard for more information.

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.
