Helps enterprises quickly enable, adapt and extend business-relevant private and hybrid clouds
BURLINGTON, Mass., June 19 — DynamicOps, pioneer of the Operations Virtualization platform that enables unified cloud automation and management, today announced new capabilities that make it easy for enterprises to evolve existing infrastructure into a business-relevant cloud. The company is extending its award-winning DynamicOps Cloud Suite and Cloud Development Kit with a highly customizable self-service portal, enhanced workflow editing tools, new developer productivity tools and an expanded activity library.
"Private/hybrid cloud systems don't operate in isolation. To be successful on a large scale and gain company-wide adoption, they must support the differing requirements of an enterprise's many business units. This means they must easily integrate with a wide variety of existing IT systems and best practices," said Leslie Muller, CTO and Founder of DynamicOps. "DynamicOps solutions were purpose-built for enabling companies to create business-relevant clouds that leverage existing and future investments, eliminating vendor lock-in. Now, with our new extensibility enhancements, we're making it even easier for enterprises to deliver unique, context-aware cloud services to each business group and a personalized experience to every user."
"The main criterion for any enterprise cloud framework is the ability to fit in with the rest of the company's data center management software. These existing management systems often have been refined over many years and contain corporate knowledge that must be built-upon, instead of replaced by a shiny new cloud environment. DynamicOps' cloud offerings meet this need by providing tremendous out-of-the-box integration capabilities plus comprehensive, intuitive tools for enterprises to extend their cloud for new use cases," said Torsten Volk, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Management Associates.
Intracom Telecom is a prime case in point. The international telecommunications vendor selected DynamicOps for the deployment of its public cloud largely due to its unparalleled extensibility capabilities. "We needed a cloud automation solution that would enable us to quickly develop and go-to-market with a variety of innovative cloud services. DynamicOps platform has significantly more out-of-the-box capabilities compared to others. Equally important, it includes robust tools that our development team can use to extend our cloud offerings, thus including services like Storage as a Service, Backup as a Service, and Desktops as a Service, without engaging external professional services," said Nikos Apostolou, Manager, Cloud Project Director at Intracom Telecom.
Enhanced Extensibility Capabilities
Using DynamicOps cloud solutions, enterprises can enable, adapt and extend their clouds to meet the unique needs of each business unit. In addition to out-of-the-box capabilities that address about 80 percent of a company's integration needs and use cases, DynamicOps Cloud Suite and Cloud Development Kit now include the following capabilities:
The new DynamicOps extensibility capabilities are available immediately as part of the DynamicOps Cloud Suite and DynamicOps Cloud Development Kit. For more information, please contact DynamicOps.

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.
