DUBLIN, July 2 — Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vh54zq/asiapacific_platf) has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan's new report "Asia-Pacific Platform as a Service Market 2011: The Next Battleground of Cloud Computing?" to their offering.
This report titled Asia-Pacific Platform as a Service Market 2011 provides an overview of the platform as a service (PaaS) market as well as the factors that are aiding or deterring its growth. In this research, Frost & Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following geographic markets: Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), Greater China, India, South Korea, and Australia-New Zealand.
Platform as a Service to Be the Next Battleground for Cloud Service Providers as Software and Infrastructure Get Commoditized
The Increasing Adoption of SaaS and Pressure to Deliver IT as a Service Accelerates Demand for PaaS
Belying its nascence, the Asia Pacific PaaS market is attracting considerable interest from businesses due to the flexibility it brings to application development and software as a service (SaaS). As most software available from the cloud is standardized, enterprises are looking to leverage PaaS offerings as it will be the only stack where a service provider can create differentiation. The high level of flexibility and the ability to reduce costs while developing, testing, and deploying new applications is creating a strong case for PaaS' adoption. The growing developer community, with an increasing number of small/part-time developers, is also creating a strong opportunity for the market, says the analyst of this research. PaaS provides them access to a scalable IT infrastructure and the tools required to develop and test their applications, on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Enterprises have begun to recognize the benefits and need for cloud computing and are taking steps to enable it in their organizations. However, as PaaS is still only a fledgling concept, its lack of regulation and standardization has restrained adoption among enterprises in the highly regulated sectors. The differences in the choice of platforms, such as Java, Ruby, or others, are hindering porting applications and data between PaaS vendors and/or to on-premise. Therefore, openness and integration with other platforms and mobile devices will be crucial in the future. Constant technical innovations will ensure that the PaaS market evolves and sheds its embryonic tag.

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.
