OTTAWA, Canada & SAN DIEGO, Calif., Aug. 29 -- Protecode, a leading provider of open source compliance solutions, today announced a free version of its popular hosted open source scanning and license management solution at the inaugural CloudOpen conference, co-located with LinuxCon, August 29-31, in San Diego, CA.
ProtecodeCloud ComplimentaryTM is a Software as a Service (SaaS) code scanning tool that allows organizations to uncover open source and third party content in their code. Because it is a hosted solution, there is no software to install or update. ProtecodeCloud Complimentary is ideally suited to any size organization, especially those that are already developing software in the cloud.
Organizations can sign up through Protecode’s secure website at www.protecode.com, and will be given seven day access to ProtecodeCloud to scan their code and obtain a list of all open source licenses and copyrights in their code portfolio. Additional detailed reports can be obtained by signing up for one of the paid editions,ProtecodeCloud Professional or Premium.
“Linux and open source software components are pervasive in new product development across market segments. With many organizations now developing software for the cloud, it makes sense for them to be able to manage license compliance in the cloud as well,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer services, The Linux Foundation.
Protecode will showcase its open source compliance solutions in booth #104 at CloudOpen. Additionally, Protecode COO Kamyar Emami will present on the topic of “Leveraging Open Source in Cloud Based Applications” on Friday, August 31 from 3:05-3:50pm.
Protecode also announced support for the Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX) standard, version 1.1 across all of its products. Protecode is a member of the SPDX work group, sponsored by the Linux Foundation, helping to drive innovation in open source compliance standards.
Protecode provides comprehensive solutions for managing open source software licenses. Protecode offers bothon-demand and on-premises solutions that enable lightning fast code scanning that works behind the scenes in real-time to detect and report open source licenses relative to company-defined policies. Built for ease-of-use and minimal intrusion into existing development processes, Protecode cost-effectively manages the lifecycle of open source licensing obligations. Protecode is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada with partners worldwide. For more information, visit www.protecode.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.
