Six-week Web-based training program provides IT professionals with all-new sessions on key cloud and PaaS concepts, technologies and best practices
PALO ALTO, Calif., May 22 — WSO2 today announced that WSO2 Summer School returns for a fourth year by popular demand. The all-new classes for 2012 will focus on the cloud: from selecting a cloud platform to developing cloud applications, scaling cloud deployments, and demonstrating cloud value. Since 2009, WSO2's interactive Web-based program has helped more than 2,000 enterprise IT professionals become more familiar with the technologies and best practices for building, integrating and deploying Web applications and services. The free WSO2 Summer School classes will be held on Tuesday at 9 a.m. Pacific for six weeks beginning June 12, 2012.
"Our widely attended Summer School program has highlighted the keen interest among IT architects and developers to gain a deeper understanding of proven development best practices," said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder and CEO. "With more enterprises turning to the cloud, our fourth year brings exciting new classes to answer these IT professionals' top questions about how to select, develop and deploy cloud applications. And it reflects our continued commitment to open education that supports the evolving needs of the developer community."
The six customized Cloud Summer School courses will be led by WSO2 Vice President of Technology Evangelism Chris Haddad, who brings more than a decade of expertise in cloud and platform-as-a-service (PaaS). He will be joined by WSO2 Co-founder and CTO Paul Fremantle, Director of Solutions Architecture Asanka Abeysinghe, Senior Software Architect Selvaratnam Uthaiyashankar, and Associate Technical Lead Senaka Fernando. Together, they will share their first-hand experience in developing cloud middleware and implementing cloud deployments for Global 1000 companies.
The program is open to all individuals who want to boost their cloud knowledge directly from some of the industry's leading experts – a once-a-year opportunity to obtain thousands of dollars worth of professional training at zero cost.

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.
