DENVER, June 28 — FORTRUST, the Rocky Mountain Region's premium data center and colocation services provider, today announced that Ajubeo, a national provider of enterprise-class cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), has chosen its Denver, Colorado data center for their high-density cloud computing colocation deployment. The decision was based on FORTRUST's 100% uptime track record as well as its ability to accommodate Ajubeo's need for 17 kW per cabinet/rack. FORTRUST owns and operates the 224,000 square-foot data center that is an SSAE 16 SOC 1 and 2 Type 2 compliant facility in Denver, Colorado.
Cloud infrastructure companies such as Ajubeo are ideal customers for FORTRUST due to their high-growth potential, interconnection ecosystem development and on-site co-marketing synergies such as data center consolidation endeavors that include hybrid colocation to cloud deployments. Analysts have projected the cloud computing market to grow at a 56% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next five years.
Ajubeo's sales performance since its launch announcement on May 23, 2012, validates these projections. The company's go-to-market strategy includes retail and wholesale direct cloud infrastructure sales as well as turnkey private label IaaS offerings and referral partner programs, addressing the largest possible demand base in the industry. Ajubeo's strategic positioning has been well-received in the Denver market, onboarding direct cloud customers such as Datavail Corporation, a leading provider of expert database administration, and EstesGroup, a customer-focused managed service provider delivering cloud-based and on-premise end-to-end ERP, CRM and financial systems, as well as ecosystem contributors such as RevGen Partners and Go West IT.
Cloud computing providers such as Ajubeo are also strong candidates for FORTRUST's new Data Module offering, utilizing their "powered by IO" partnership. Ajubeo has already confirmed interest in the product with the companies actively involved in discussions on next steps and demand timelines.
"The decision to deploy our Denver cloud hub at FORTRUST was obvious," commented Chuck Price, president and CEO of Ajubeo. "FORTRUST is the only data center in Denver built to handle power-dense offerings like Ajubeo's enterprise-class cloud infrastructure. FORTRUST has never experienced an outage and their commitment to security is evident immediately upon entering the facility.

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.
