MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 12 — Mirantis, a leader in engineering services for OpenStack Cloud, said that its executives and customers, Nexenta and iSuperGrid, will speak at three sessions at the upcoming OpenStack Conference in San Francisco, April 19-20.
Mirantis has been an active member of the OpenStack community since its inception and has contributed multiple code commits to the OpenStack Compute and Identity projects. Mirantis is also one of the key organizers of the Bay Area's OpenStack user group, hosting the quarterly community events in Silicon Valley. Just before the OpenStack Design Summit kicks off on Monday, on April 14-15, Mirantis is hosting the first two-day Boot Camp for OpenStack, hands-on technical training for OpenStack Compute. The session is sold out.
Greg Elkinbard, Senior Director, Product Management, Mirantis, and Caitlin Bestler, Director, Architecture, at Mirantis customer, Nexenta, will speak on Thursday, April 19, at the panel discussion:
Boris Renski, co-founder and CMO at Mirantis, will moderate one panel session and speak at another on Friday, April 20:
Also, Mirantis will host the Design Summit Kickoff Party on Monday, April 16. Conference attendees can register to attend at openstacksummitkickoff2012.eventbrite.com/.

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.

he 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.
