Attunity CloudBeam enables reliable, affordable and high-performance Big Data replication for disaster recovery, backup and data distribution
BURLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 28 — Attunity Ltd., a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today that Attunity CloudBeam, its recently introduced high-performance SaaS platform for Amazon Web Services (AWS), has expanded its services to provide a new data replication-as-a-service solution for AWS' Simple Storage Service (S3). Currently available for testing, the service provides replication and synchronization of Big Data stored in S3 across AWS cloud regions to enable business-critical initiatives, including disaster recovery, backup and data distribution. The new Attunity CloudBeam service is designed to ensure that information availability in the cloud is quick, reliable, easy-to-use and affordable for AWS customers.
"Enterprises today are increasingly feeling constrained by traditional data management methods and as a result, are embracing the cloud for its scalability and affordability," explained Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies Inc., a cloud strategy consultancy, and founder of the Cloud Computing Showplace. "Organizations can properly configure cloud systems to be ready to go when needed, but never pay for any services until they're actually used – a smart, cost-saving measure. Key benefits like these make data replication in the cloud a highly attractive and viable option for organizations today."
Automated, fully-managed, and ‘pay-as-you-use', the new Attunity CloudBeam service for S3 efficiently replicates files and folders, and features:
"As a new member of the exclusive Amazon Partner Network, Attunity is proud to deliver this exciting new service as part of our continued dedication to enhancing our partnership with Amazon Web Services," explained Matt Benati, VP Global Marketing at Attunity. "AWS customers have expressed strong interest in a data replication-as-a-service solution that is tightly integrated with S3 to enable high-performance data distribution, backup and disaster recovery affordably. This new Attunity CloudBeam service is designed to effectively meet customers' Big Data replication requirements and its guaranteed delivery, elastic, high-performance platform and quick time-to-value make it a true stand out."

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.
