Cloud collaboration with Red Hat Allows Autonomic Resources to expand their reach into the federal market
CARY, NC, March 27 — Autonomic Resources announced that it has joined the Red Hat Cloud ecosystem as a Certified Cloud Provider in the federal community. Red Hat Certified Cloud Providers have to meet business, operational, and technical requirements to be able to offer Red Hat solutions under cloud-appropriate business models and are backed by Red Hat support relationships.
Autonomic Resources Cloud Platform (ARC-P) is a government-only elastic compute environment that meets the NIST criteria for what is considered "cloud computing." The combination of shifting budgetary targets, conditional funding streams, and cloud first / future first policy initiatives has driven the need for utility based computing. One of the key benefits identified in the governments cloud computing initiative is the reduced overhaul of software and hardware every few years, removing political, budgetary and integration headaches.
"Extending our relationship with Red Hat into the cloud was a desired and natural fit for Autonomic. Red Hat is clearly a leader in open standards and as open, portable, and flexible clouds continue to be key to adoption, we see compelling value in our work with Red Hat," said John Keese, president at Autonomic Resources.
Red Hat Certified Cloud Providers offer a trusted destination for Red Hat customers, ISVs, and collaborators to use Red Hat technologies in public clouds and deliver a safe, scalable, supported, and consistent environment for enterprise cloud deployments.
"Red Hat and Autonomic Resources have worked closely together on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and JBoss Enterprise Middleware for many years and we take this collaboration to the next level by extending our reach into the cloud today. Together, we will bring an open choice to our joint federal customers as we offer the ability to plan, build and manage clouds more easily with Red Hat and Autonomic Resources," said Paul Smith, vice president and general manager, Public Sector at Red Hat.

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.
