CHENNAI, India, May 16 — OrangeScape, a Global 10 Platform as a Service (PaaS) provider, and Eucalyptus Systems, the world's most widely deployed Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud platform, today announced integration between OrangeScape's Visual PaaS platform and Eucalyptus' IaaS platform. The combined solution accelerates time to market for important business applications by addressing the application platform needs of IT and the hybrid and private cloud capabilities demanded by today's enterprises.
Suresh Sambandam, founder & CEO at OrangeScape, said on this partnership: "With our Visual Platform as a Service (PaaS) we address business application and workflow needs of very large enterprise customers focused on productivity through platform abstraction. This partnership with Eucalyptus offers our customers a complete cloud platform solution starting from private cloud, spanning into hybrid model and running PaaS on top of it. This is a great opportunity for very large enterprise customers to have their own "Private PaaS."
OrangeScape provides a model driven visual development environment for creating cloud based business applications that can be deployed on the OrangeScape run-time platform and the cloud infrastructure of their choice, such as Google App Engine, Microsoft Azure, or Eucalyptus' IaaS platform.
Eucalyptus is the world's most widely deployed cloud computing software platform for on-premise (private) Infrastructure as a Service clouds. The Eucalyptus IaaS platform is fully compatible with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) APIs, enabling customers to more efficiently migrate workloads between their existing data centers and AWS while using the same management tools and skills across both environments.
"Through our partnership with OrangeScape, customers can combine the Eucalyptus IaaS platform with OrangeScape's Visual Platform as a Service (PaaS) to create a production ready private PaaS for enterprises," said David Butler, senior vice president of marketing at Eucalyptus. "The integrated solution meets the market's increasing demand for comprehensive cloud solutions, and will provide customers the fastest way to bring business applications and services to market."
Through this partnership, OrangeScape will provide technology platforms for customers globally to build, deploy and scale sophisticated business applications, with flexibility to opt for a an Enterprise Private Cloud or Hybrid Cloud configuration.

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.
