Built on company's leading enterprise-class cloud architecture, private cloud solution meets customer requirements for dedicated cloud resources
MIAMI, April 3 — Terremark, a Verizon Company, is launching the latest addition to its extensive portfolio of secure cloud offerings – Enterprise Cloud Private Edition. This private cloud solution is built on the leading enterprise-class architecture of Terremark's flagship cloud computing offering, the Enterprise Cloud, but is designed as a single-tenant environment to meet the security compliance requirements of many large enterprises and government agencies.
Enterprise Cloud Private Edition is an extension of the company's hybrid cloud strategy, offering customers the capability of migrating application workloads between traditional and cloud environments – including their own dedicated infrastructure, Terremark's cloud platforms, and cloud resources offered by other providers – in a seamless and secure way. Enterprises and government agencies running application workloads in this private cloud are able to connect easily into the company's award-winning public cloud platform for bursting during peak usage periods and as part of a cloud migration strategy. Additionally, the Private Edition solution adheres to Terremark's commitment to an open cloud strategy by offering customers the freedom to utilize multiple operating systems and private network integration through Terremark's carrier-neutral data centers.
"Our Private Edition solution is designed to meet the strong customer demand we've seen for the agility, cost efficiencies and flexibility of cloud computing, delivered in a single-tenant, dedicated environment," said Ellen Rubin, Terremark's vice president of Cloud Products. "Since the initial launch of the Enterprise Cloud four years ago, Terremark has been a recognized leader in delivering the innovative, enterprise-class cloud computing solutions and complementary secure IT infrastructure services that large companies and government agencies are leveraging as they migrate from traditional IT infrastructure to a hybrid model."
Terremark's portfolio of cloud computing solutions sets the standard for enterprise-class cloud computing – with the service-level agreements, security models, professional services, and world-class data centers that allow organizations to run their critical production applications in the cloud with confidence. With the addition of Terremark's CloudSwitch software, customers are able to bridge their existing IT infrastructure with Terremark's cloud computing services to create a compelling hybrid model for enterprise IT. This unique capability allows customers to connect seamlessly to Terremark's public and private cloud services for workload portability. The CloudSwitch software also supports multiple clouds allowing customers to migrate application workloads to other cloud providers or back to their data centers without modifying their applications.
The Enterprise Cloud Private Edition solution is available now, and is delivered from Terremark cloud-enabled data centers across its global footprint of strategically located facilities. Additionally, a customized private cloud offering designed by the company's proven team of cloud experts and based on the same highly secure architecture as the Enterprise Cloud Private Edition offering is available for deployment in customer facilities and other non-Terremark locations.
Terremark, a Verizon Company, is a leader in transforming and securing enterprise-class IT on a global scale. A subsidiary of Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq:VZ), Terremark sets the standard for IT deployments with advanced infrastructure and managed service offerings that deliver the scale, security, and reliability necessary to meet the demanding requirements of enterprises and governments around the world. With a global network of data centers and a comprehensive portfolio of secure solutions, Terremark is helping enterprise and government executives realize the power and promise of the cloud today.

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.
