MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 1 — Nimbula, the Cloud Operating System Company, today announced that EPAM Systems, a leading global software engineering and IT consulting provider, implemented Nimbula Director, the most advanced cloud computing software for building and managing private, hybrid and public clouds.
Headquartered in the United States, EPAM Systems employs more than 7,300 IT professionals and provides services to clients worldwide using a global delivery model through its client facing and delivery operations in North America and Europe. EPAM's core competencies include complex software product engineering for leading global software and technology vendors, as well as development, testing, maintenance and support of mission critical business applications and vertically oriented IT consulting services for Forbes Global 2000 corporations.
To enhance its delivery model, EPAM selected Nimbula Director to create a geographically distributed community cloud that addresses its need to increase its productivity, quality and cost-effectiveness of delivering services and project and infrastructure management.
"EPAM tested several systems that claimed to be 'EC2-like,'" said Eli Feldman, Vice President of Cloud Solutions and Services at EPAM. "However, Nimbula Director provided a better solution out-of-the-box. Other systems were complex to install and configure, difficult to manage, not as reliable and priced unattractively. We liked the concept of having a product that included all functionality in one SKU at a competitive price. Federation to EC2 was a critical part of the project. For the past year, Nimbula provided exceptional support for their product."
EPAM's cloud features:
"EPAM is a leader in software and application outsourcing and is using Nimbula Director to improve the quality and performance of its operations and to reduce costs," said Reza Malekzadeh, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Nimbula. "We are excited to see industry leaders like EPAM strengthening their leadership and competitiveness with Nimbula Director."
The cloud increased the efficiency of the EPAM's global delivery model with:
Founded by the team that developed the industry-leading Amazon EC2, Nimbula (NYSE: EPAM) delivers a comprehensive cloud operating system that uniquely combines the scalability and operational efficiencies of the public cloud with the control, security and trust of today's most advanced data centers. Nimbula was named one of the most promising startups in The Wall Street Journal and was dubbed "one of three cloud properties ready to burst" in Fortune. Nimbula is headquartered in Mountain View, California. For more information, visit http://nimbula.com.
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.
