Jason Waxman, general manager, Cloud Infrastructure Group at Intel Corporation, to deliver headline keynote address at 4th annual Cloud Slam'12 Cloud Computing Conference in San Francisco
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 25 — Cloudcor announces Intel Corporation as headline Diamond Partner for the 4th Annual Cloud Slam'12 Conference and Expo, taking place Wednesday May 30 - June 1, 2012 in San Francisco and broadcast virtually globally.
Jason Waxman, GM, Cloud Infrastructure Group, will deliver a headline keynote address focused on Intel's vision of federated, automated, and client aware cloud environments and the programs that Intel is driving with the industry to make it easier for enterprises and service providers to build, deploy, and enhance cloud environments to add value to their businesses.
"Today, cloud computing is driven by more users, more devices, more storage, and more traffic – all of which requires a solid infrastructure to manage the growth," said Jason Waxman. "Intel's Cloud 2015 Vision includes the following characteristics: federated, to share data securely across public and private cloud environments; automated, so that IT can focus more on innovation; and client aware, to optimize services based on device capabilities. Moving forward, there must be open industry standards to enable interoperability and allow for industry innovation."
"We are delighted to have Intel headline Cloud Slam'12 as our conference Diamond Partner," said Khazret Sapenov, chairman of Cloudcor. "Intel is leading the way when it comes to helping fortune 1,000 companies navigate the right path to the cloud and are driving cloud efficiencies across the enterprise. We look forward to their contribution to this year's CS12 proceedings."

About Cloudcor and Cloud Slam'12
Cloud Slam'12, produced by Cloudcor, is one of the world's largest independent cloud computing conferences. The conference, now in its fourth year, encompasses a tried and tested hybrid format event, which last year attracted a global audience in excess of 10,000 senior business decision makers.

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 private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.

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.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
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. Use this quick article to jump-start your own thinking on heterogeneous computing.
