Transforming diamond analysis through superior simulation software
TEL AVIV, Israel, April 16 — Xoreax Software, a leading provider of software acceleration technology, announced today that Sarin Technologies, a worldwide leader in advanced planning, evaluation, and measurement systems for diamond grading and gemstone production, has adopted IncrediBuild-XGE.
"Our adoption of IncrediBuild-XGE is really a win for our customers," explained Uzi Levami, chief executive officer of Sarin. "With IncrediBuild-XGE, we not only maximize diamond value for clients involved in gemstone production and extraction, but also enable them to save significant time and resources."
Sarin is using IncrediBuild-XGE to accelerate the performance of Sarin Advisor, a specialized diamond analysis application that maximizes the value of raw diamonds. The software calculates millions of potential diamond cutting options and identifies optimal cutting patterns based on stone attributes including size, weight, and internal flaws.
Using traditional sequential processing, full optimization analyses for complex projects used to take as long as 40-60 hours. By applying IncrediBuild-XGE software acceleration technology, Sarin was able to slash processing time to 1 or 2 hours. In other cases, simpler 1 to 2 hour analysis processes now finish within 10-15 minutes. Workflows that once took several days have been reduced to a single night's run.
IncrediBuild-XGE is a software-based distributed computing solution that accelerates time-intensive computational processes. IncrediBuild-XGE transforms a network of PCs and servers into a private computing cloud, allowing utilization of unused computing power and creating a heavy-duty compute farm best described as a "Virtual Supercomputer," all without requiring additional resources.
"Advisor is an ideal example of the kind of application for which IncrediBuild-XGE was designed," added Eyal Maor, CEO of Xoreax. "By dramatically accelerating processing time for Windows-based applications with complex computational workloads, IncrediBuild-XGE can free up time for additional features and create the competitive advantage needed to deliver game-changing results."

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
