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."

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 private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.

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.
