MIAMI, May 22 — As part of its focus on delivering secure IT infrastructure solutions to enterprises and government agencies in Europe, Terremark, a Verizon Company, increased its cloud infrastructure capacity by deploying a node of its Enterprise Cloud Managed Edition at its data center in London. With this expansion of cloud capacity, the London data center joins the company's network of data centers across Europe that serve as the foundation for the secure, enterprise-class services Terremark offers to its multinational customer base.
The London data center provides the robust physical infrastructure that helps Terremark meet the increasing demand from customers for advanced cloud computing, security and IT infrastructure services. As with the cloud deployments in its cloud-enabled data centers around the world, Terremark delivers leading security services to support its public cloud infrastructure and offers a range of IT infrastructure and hybrid cloud solutions to meet customer requirements for their dynamic enterprise systems.
"This investment is testament to our focus on architecting a global enterprise cloud to help our customers transform their business operations," said Nelson Fonseca, president of Terremark. "London is a crucial business hub for Terremark and Verizon, given the number of global multinationals with operations in the region. The expanded cloud capacity enables us to help our customers securely explore innovative new business models, which will help them to achieve their future business success."
Through Terremark, Verizon is continuing to invest heavily to deliver transformative and secure enterprise IT solutions on a global scale. Most recently, Terremark announced the deployment of a node of its Enterprise Cloud offering in its cloud-enabled data center in Denver, an expansion of its Network Access Point (NAP) in Brazil to serve customers who are expanding their operations in Latin America, and the expansion of the company's NAP of Americas-Colombia facility. In Europe, the company launched the NAP of Amsterdam, a state-of-the-art facility designed with advanced cooling, power, redundancy and sustainability features to maintain the availability of business-critical applications while reducing energy consumption, in September 2011. Verizon also recently opened a new combined Security, Network and Remote Operations Centre in Dortmund, Germany.
Kerry Bailey, Verizon Enterprise Solutions' chief marketing officer, commented: "The ability to quickly and efficiently realize the benefits of enterprise cloud services has been of particular interest to businesses in Europe this year, as they are faced with business continuity concerns in connection with the London 2012 Olympics. It's important for us to invest to support our customers where they need us – this is obviously timely in terms of London 2012, but is also part of our focusing on investing in infrastructure to support our customers' future business growth."
The London data center facility is part of Terremark's network of nearly 50 strategically located data centers around the world. These robust facilities provide advanced security, redundant power and monitoring to maintain availability, and feature advanced colocation and cloud technology for sensitive mission-critical applications.
Terremark, a Verizon Company, is a leader in transforming and securing enterprise-class IT on a global scale. A subsidiary of Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq:VZ), Terremark sets the standard for IT deployments with advanced infrastructure and managed service offerings that deliver the scale, security, and reliability necessary to meet the demanding requirements of enterprises and governments around the world. With a global network of data centers and a comprehensive portfolio of secure solutions, Terremark is helping enterprise and government executives realize the power and promise of the cloud today.

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.

he 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.
