Report discusses that cloud security issues act as the major challenge for adopting cloud services in the EMEA
DUBLIN, June 22 — Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Cloud Services Adoption Market in the EMEA Region-Survey Report 2011" report to their offering.
TechNavio's analysts have conducted a survey on Cloud Services Market Adoption in the EMEA region. The survey was conducted with more than 100 business and technical leaders in organizations that are either using cloud services or planning to use cloud services in the near future.
The survey throws light on major drivers for the adoption of cloud services in the APAC region as well as the challenges that are hindering adoption among various organizational types in the APAC region. Further, the survey also brings out the reasons for opting for private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud for cloud services. The survey also, brings out interesting findings that helps to understand the future outlook of the market across the EMEA region.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's IT Security team said; Higher adoption of cloud services is being witnessed among those organizations with fewer employees. Cloud services allow enterprises to meet their storage and computational requirements easily through the cloud computing model. Companies in their initial stages of business are choosing to adopt cloud-based services to meet their business needs. Organizations are able to save on their initial investment in infrastructure and also reduce their operational costs associated with infrastructure.
According to the report, the major adopters of private cloud services mainly consist of banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) and healthcare institutions, which have critical data and require high security and monitoring. These end-users prefer to have a separate infrastructure to cater for their business requirements. Government institutions are also witnessing higher adoption of the services because of the higher reliability of the private cloud.

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.
