CUPERTINO, Calif., July 11 — CumuLogic today announced the general availability of CumuLogic Cloud Application Platform v1.0, the platform of choice for Global 2000 and Cloud Service Providers to build a Java Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) in their datacenters. CumuLogic's enterprise-ready platform transforms virtualized environments and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds, such as Citrix CloudStack, OpenStack and VMware vSphere, to high-value PaaS, simplifying the development, deployment and runtime management of mobile, web and enterprise applications in private and hybrid clouds.
"We are very pleased with the ease of integration that we've seen with the CumuLogic product," says Matthew Porter, CEO and Co-Founder of Contegix. "Working with CumuLogic provides for a natural extension of our MiraCloud platform and delivers on our commitment to deliver robust technology in a very flexible way."
"As one of the first CloudStack partners to be certified Citrix Ready, CumuLogic remains an important ecosystem partner for us. We believe that Platform-as-a-Service is a key element to driving greater cloud ROI for our customers, and we're very pleased to see that market maturing even further with this product release from CumuLogic." – Peder Ulander, VP of Product Marketing, Cloud Platform Group, Citrix Systems.
CumuLogic Cloud Application Platform v1.0 improves developer productivity, lowers the cost of managing applications on clouds, enables DevOps collaboration, and streamlines the migration of applications to clouds – public or private.
"We are extremely excited about the release of CumuLogic Cloud Application Platform 1.0, the most robust, vendor-independent platform on the market today," says CumuLogic President, Mike Soby. "We're looking forward to continuing the advancement of the platform and delivering real business results for our customers and partners."
CumuLogic PaaS focuses on three key functional areas:
Developers can create a new cloud-based application using their preferred IDE – no proprietary SDK required insuring portability, and deploy their application with a single-click deployment in any cloud.
Existing Java applications can be migrated from physical or virtual environments with minimal-to-zero code re-write to leverage the elasticity and economics of the cloud.
The application management function includes all the enterprise-ready features out-of-the-box, including high availability and self-healing, monitoring and real-time application-level usage metering.
"We are excited to be working with CumuLogic. After evaluating several PaaS offerings, we found that the CumuLogic platform provided the most valuable extension for our CloudStack clients and we're looking forward to building deep practice competency around the integrated solution." – Giles Sirett, Managing Consultant and Founder, ShapeBlue.

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.
