PRINCETON, NJ, March 6 — Cloud Linux Inc., an innovative software company dedicated to serving the needs of hosting service providers, today announced that SoftLayer Technologies will add the CloudLinux OS to its dedicated and cloud server offerings.
Under this agreement, shared hosting companies operating within SoftLayer's data centers will be able to purchase servers with CloudLinux pre-installed. Additionally, CloudLinux will work directly with SoftLayer's support department to make sure that customers receive prompt support for any CloudLinux related issues.
"By adding the CloudLinux OS to our arsenal, we're helping our customers to get the most out of every server through improved performance, greater virtualization density and management efficiency," said Marc Jones, director of product innovation for SoftLayer. "This new offering fits in nicely to our a la carte strategy for building out best-of-breed hosting solutions that empowers our customers to take advantage of the latest technologies while maintaining complete control over their IT environment."
The CloudLinux OS delivers major improvement in the stability and security of servers running cPanel and Plesk. CloudLinux uses Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology to control CPU, memory and concurrent connections on a per-customer basis. The LVE technology improves uptime and overall customer satisfaction by eliminating "bad-neighbor effects," in which one customer can cause performance issues for all the other customers on the server.
Key benefits of CloudLinux OS include:
"This agreement is a significant milestone for our company because working with an industry leader, such as SoftLayer, will greatly expand the reach of our distribution for CloudLinux OS," said Igor Seletskiy, Founder and CEO of Cloud Linux. "The integration of CloudLinux into the SoftLayer platform will enable customers to achieve higher stability and security for their shared hosting needs."

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.
