Free WSO2 webinar on March 21, 2012, explores best practices for enabling enterprise applications with cloud-native multi-tenancy, self-provisioning, elasticity and metering
PALO ALTO, Calif., March 15 — Cloud computing enables enterprises to cost effectively extend the reach of their applications and readily adapt to changing demands. However, a successful migration requires not only the ability to provide full cloud-native functionality – such as multi-tenancy, elasticity, self-provisioning and metering – but also seamless integration with on-premise systems that need to remain behind the firewall. To help IT architects, developers and managers address these demands, WSO2 will present a free webinar entitled, "Roadmap to the Clouds – How to Easily Migrate to the Cloud Platform Using WSO2 Stratos."
The one-hour WSO2 technical webinar on cloud migration will run Wednesday, March 21, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PST. For more information, visit wso2.org/library/webinars/2012/03/quotroadmap-clouds%E2%80%9D-easily-migrate-cloud-platform-using-wso2-stratos.
The webinar will examine how the WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform can be deployed in various infrastructures, including public and private cloud environments, to provide facilities such as self-provisioning, multi-tenancy, elasticity and metering. The session also will cover how enterprises can use WSO2 Stratos to efficiently move service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications to the cloud while supporting many industry standards such as Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), OpenID, eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML), and the WS-* family of Web service specifications.
The webinar will be presented by Selvaratnam Uthaiyashankar (Shankar), a senior software architect who is part of the WSO2 cloud platform team. Shankar is a recognized industry expert in security and cloud deployment. Equipped with an in-depth understanding of the elements of security, he brings quality insights into the architectural aspects of securing an enterprise whether on-premise or in the cloud.
WSO2 is the lean enterprise middleware company. It delivers the only complete open source enterprise SOA middleware stack purpose-built as an integrated platform to support today's heterogeneous enterprise environments – internally and in the cloud. WSO2's service and support team is led by technical experts who have proven success in deploying enterprise SOAs and contribute to the technology standards that enable them.

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.
