Chef is an excellent tool for setting up an enterprise environment and automating complex IT processes. It promotes the concept of DevOps and managing your infrastructure as code. However, Chef doesn't go beyond the setup phase. This webinar will speak about how the concept of DevOps and recipes can go well beyond setup, to actually accelerate the entire lifecycle of your applications, from setup, to monitoring, through maintaining high availability, and auto-scaling when required.
Who: Uri Cohen, GigaSpaces Technologies
When: Wednesday, May 23, 12 pm ET
Where: Online webinar
No one can deny that big data and cloud simply complement each other. Big data requires clusters of servers in order to process and analyze data, which is something the cloud can easily provide. In this session, we’ll learn how you can build your big data “database on-demand” using Cassandra’s big data solution, as well as manage your big data application using Cloudify.
Who: Nati Shalom, GigaSpaces Technologies
When: Tuesday, June 5, 12 pm ET
Where: Online webinar
Your different lines of business need to have consistent view across applications and across sites but you still need to think about cloud bursting or disaster recovery. GigaSpaces will speak about how multi-site replication over WAN will help you achieve the reliability, scalability, security, and interoperabilty you need for your business, and even more. This webinar will bring a real world use case, and dive into the architecture you need to start replicating your data today.
Who: DeWayne Filippi, GigaSpaces Technologies & the CTO of one of the world’s largest commodities trading companies
When: Tuesday, June 20, 12 pm ET
Where: Online webinar

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.

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.
