Product improvements target front, middle & back-office acceleration, big data deployments and cloud computing
OTTAWA, Canada, May 22 — Solace Systems today announced a series of upgrades to its market leading family of middleware appliances to deliver high-capacity application infrastructure in support of the most demanding distributed computing architectures. Solace's latest hardware innovation helps companies handle more data at lower cost and with less effort than ever before.
"The volume of data handled by business applications continues to grow at 40% per year with no sign of slowing*. This trend affects a wide spectrum of applications such as trading platforms in capital markets, big data systems and cloud environments where data from many systems is merged into a single shared infrastructure," said Dan Sholler, research VP at Gartner. "We expect this trend to accelerate as more information from mobile apps, social media and operational systems is incorporated into the IT landscape. Organizations are looking beyond traditional middleware products to simplify the movement of data at this scale."
Solace's middleware appliances have been deployed in a range of industries to simplify and accelerate the movement of information within datacenters, around the world over wide area networks, and to users via web and mobile apps.
The new capabilities and products announced today include:
"A number of factors are driving demand for middleware that offers higher capacity without increasing cost and complexity: the migration to cloud infrastructure, big data initiatives, and legislation like Dodd Frank that requires companies to collect more data," said Shawn McAllister, CTO at Solace. "These latest technology innovations meet that demand by extending our advantage over competing middleware in terms of throughput, savings and overall system reliability."
The new Solace products and features will be available during summer 2012.

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.
