GaleCloud Scheduler Release 12.7 from Gale Technologies is now available for free download
SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 13 — Gale Technologies, a leading provider of infrastructure automation software solutions that power IT as a Service for labs, enterprises, and service providers, today announced the availability of the latest version of Cloud Scheduler, an innovative and free software tool that allows IT admins to provide self-service reservation and scheduling of virtual machines in VMware environments. Cloud Scheduler Software is a product built specifically for the purpose of maximizing the utilization of virtualized infrastructure, and automating repetitive tasks associated with VM provisioning.
Cloud Scheduler 12.7 now supports VMware VSphere 5, and is freely available for download at http://www.cloudscheduler.com.
With Cloud Scheduler organizations are able to fully realize the value of VMware virtualization by:
Improving Agility of VM delivery by automating manual tasks associated with provisioning a VM, and offering a self-service catalog of VM workloads for users to reserve;
Pro-actively Preventing VM Sprawl with need-based allocation of resources to VMs;
Increasing infrastructure utilization with intelligent allocation and de-allocation of virtual resources;
Pro-actively managing capacity based on actual anticipated demand; and,
Preventing performance issues caused by long running VMs by decommissioning virtual resources at the end of the reservation.
"With Cloud Scheduler Software, IT administrators can easily create self-service infrastructures, and automate the provisioning of complex VM workloads within a simple web-based interface", said James Thomason, chief technology officer at Gale Technologies. "An added advantage is that organizations are able to proactively manage the lifecycle of each workload, proactively preventing VM sprawl."
The latest version of Cloud Scheduler 12.7 includes these features:

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.
