PROVO, Utah, Aug. 22 — Adaptive Computing, the largest provider of private cloud management and High-Performance Computing (HPC) workload management software, today announced a strategic partnership and technology development agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT) to create a cloud operating system by integrating Moab Cloud Suite and an open source private cloud platform. By integrating best-of-breed components, Adaptive will enable broader applicability of private clouds within the Intelligence Community as well as in the commercial market.
Moab's policy-based decision engine enhances open source cloud, making it more efficient and capable as a cloud operating system. Moab brings policy-based optimization to cloud management, managing resource allocation, migrations, maintenance reservations, etc. Combining these capabilities with open source enables organizations to save time and money.
"The Moab integration with open source will lead to increased flexibility and cost savings for IQT's customers in the Intelligence Community," comments Rob Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. "We are honored to be a part of this strategic partnership and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship."
This innovative solution will bring the power of policy-based optimization to the open source platform, enabling much wider adoption for private clouds.
"Adaptive Computing's extensive experience in cloud management software and its unique development capabilities make the company relevant to needs in both the government and commercial market," comments Robert Ames, Senior Vice President in charge of the Information and Communication Technologies practice at IQT. "We are pleased this strategic partnership will help increase our customers' access to this important technology."

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.
