MELBOURNE, Australia, June 26 — DURGA, a one stop Platform as a Service (PaaS) platform that allows business to configure, deploy, manage and monitor applications in the cloud within a matter of minutes, was launched in Melbourne last Friday (22nd June 2012). The launch took place at the NBNCo Discovery Centre (Docklands) solidifying the partnership between Australian based PaaS provider SENATH and high performance IaaS provider OrionVM.
This partnership allows businesses (both small and large) to very quickly deploy a range of free and paid applications, as well as allowing application developers to package and sell their applications on the application marketplace. By combining the Worlds Fastest Public Cloud platform as built by OrionVM with an application provisioning platform developed by SENATH, business are able to gain rapid access to a range of business application, while keeping data on-shore.
The DURGA platform is a next generation Platform as a Service (PaaS) product that simplifies application development, testing, deployment, migration, monitoring and management in private, hybrid as well as public cloud environments. DURGA comes with a rich marketplace of applications and an application development framework that allows you to get started in matter of minutes.
In a presentation given by SENATH's Director Kanchana Wickremasinghe, the partnership between OrionVM and SENATH was announced. "We are delighted to have partnered with OrionVM to deliver DURGA to Australian businesses. The use of an Australian cloud provider has allowed us to deliver extremely responsive applications with much lower latency than our competitors. This is key for many of customers and is very important to us."
OrionVM Managing Director Sheng Yeo was also present at the event to unveil this partnership. "We are incredibly excited to be working in close collaboration with SENATH on the DURGA Platform. We believe that with the release of the Durga platform, the leadership position within the largely misunderstood PaaS category of Cloud Computing is absolutely within the grasp of this highly innovative company. We are very proud to have established this great strategic partnership with DURGA and together we will continue to innovate and deliver groundbreaking solutions for business globally."
The NBNCo Discovery Centre was selected to host this event as the NBN will provide broadband connectivity to 100% of the Australian premises. Broadband connectivity is critical to the delivery of cloud platforms such as DURGA and OrionVM.

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.
