Robust management capabilities previously available exclusively to private cloud users now available in public cloud
NEW YORK, Aug. 7 — Logicworks, a global leader in cloud computing and managed hosting, today announced new updates to its public cloud platform that will bring enhanced management capabilities and cost savings to customers. Integrated with Logicworks' powerful array of managed services, the public cloud is built to seamlessly sync with existing enterprise IT infrastructures and deliver the performance needed to power mission-critical applications.
Logicworks has taken an enterprise approach to its public cloud offering, integrating functionality previously available exclusively to private cloud and managed service customers. These updates incorporate a best-in-class management interface, giving clients increased control and ease of use under one dashboard. Further updates include enterprise-level support, multi-cloud manageability, RightScale-supported configuration management and lower pricing.
"Clients have stressed the importance of having agility in their private and public cloud implementations which is often difficult to find under one roof," says Kenneth Ziegler, CEO of Logicworks. "With these updates, subscribers can now manage their entire infrastructure through a single pane of glass, accessing unparalleled control and real support from our veteran engineers."
Logicworks cloud is built on Citrix's CloudStack platform and backed by enterprise monitoring tools from ScienceLogic and non-commodity storage from EMC Isilon. These updates enable Logicworks' customers to manage their public and private cloud resources through a single control panel. With the focus on enterprise usage of these resources, clients now have more customization options to align their cloud strategy more closely with the specialized necessities of their individual businesses.
Along with the platform's increased scale, Logicworks is also lowering its public cloud pricing by 17 percent, making their public cloud the most competitively priced enterprise Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering available in the market. Further, it is backed by Logicworks' top-tier systems administration and offers multiple availability zones to ensure that applications stay up and running with consistent, uninterrupted service.
"With unprecedented cloud adoption underway, clients seek us out to help them implement the right cloud solutions for their specific applications," says Ziegler. "We will continue to iterate our cloud services to meet these ever-changing business requirements across applications and business models."

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.
