MILPITAS, Calif., Jun 12 -- Appcara, maker of cloud application lifecycle solutions, will highlight new, faster and easier approaches to mobilizing enterprise applications in the cloud at this week's Cloud Computing Expo New York at the Javits Center.
The massive growth in cloud computing obscures the fact that most cloud applications deployed today are relatively simple, static Web environments. The lack of serious management capabilities has held back the deployment of complex enterprise application environments.
This session will portray 2012 as the year for application integration and dependency management technologies to take center stage and accelerate enterprise application workloads into the cloud, with single- pane-of-glass view and control. Yung will discuss why holistic management of complex application workloads requires advanced application setting and relationship data models as well as change management automations, and the limitations of server templates and script automation. Yung will then survey new ways for enterprises and service providers to gain exceptionally fast time-to-market even with key business applications.
WHAT: "Mobilizing Enterprise Applications for the Cloud"
WHO: John Yung, Appcara
WHEN: Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at 2:25 p.m. ET
WHERE: Cloud Computing Expo New York, Javits Center, New York, NY
Appcara is also showcasing the latest version of its AppStack cloud application lifecycle management solution, in its booth #257.
Appcara's vision is to enable the most advanced and flexible cloud platforms for application integration and mobility. The company was created by a group of cloud computing industry veterans in 2010 in Santa Clara, CA who previously built industry leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud computing services such as the Savvis Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC), the Sun cloud, as well as leading service provider infrastructures at companies such as Equinix. The company provides the AppStack(R) cloud application lifecycle agility and portability platform. For more information visit www.appcara.com or @appcara.
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. Use this quick article to jump-start your own thinking on heterogeneous computing.
