DALLAS, Sept. 14 — Nimbix, a leader in accelerated high performance cloud computing, and HUGEdata, a leader in enterprise big data analytics, have announced a partnership to deliver converged big data and high performance infrastructure solutions to enterprise customers.
The rapid explosion of enterprise data has continued to add strain on in-house IT systems and their ability to handle growing workloads. At the same time, query and computation times are getting longer which severely impact productivity. To provide a comprehensive and scalable solution to this challenge the HUGEdata and Nimbix partnership brings the power and simplicity of HUGEdata’s massively parallel processing technology for high speed database analytics together with the Nimbix Accelerated Compute Cloud for highly parallel and accelerated computation. As part of the partnership, Nimbix will manage HUGEdata server infrastructure in its Dallas-based high performance computing facility and the two organizations will collaborate to deliver integrated cloud processing workflows, marrying traditional relational data storage, SQL queries and analytics with computational statistics for increasingly large datasets.
Enterprises benefit from the accelerated workflow, high availability, computational scale, and low cost of ownership afforded by a cloud-based service offering. Existing queries and data structures are maintained while performance increases dramatically. The net result is a big boost in productivity.
“Both of our companies are about delivering ultra fast, easy to use cloud processing to the enterprise,“ said Steve Hebert, CEO of Nimbix, “essentially we’ve brought big data and big compute cloud solutions together under one roof, simplifying data movement and automating cloud-based data processing.”
“We are very excited about our partnership. With Nimbix, we can deliver storage and computing capacity almost immediately. And we look forward to leveraging Nimbix’s knowledge of bioinformatics and accelerated computation into new features and capabilities in our database”, said Martin Zacarias, CEO of HUGEdata.
Nimbix offers its cloud computing service through the Nimbix Accelerated Compute Cloud Portal and through its innovative Task Processing API which enables enterprises to launch many concurrent cloud processing tasks with a simple web command.
HUGEdata provides its analytic database as a cloud service, hosted service and appliance, providing full flexibility of deployment depending on client needs. In addition to standard SQL, HUGEdata has incorporated many statistical and data mining functions into its database, allowing high-speed, in-database analytics.
Nimbix is a provider of cloud-based High Performance Computing infrastructure and applications. Nimbix offers HPC applications as a service through the Nimbix Accelerated Compute Cloud ™, dramatically speeding up data processing for Life Sciences, Oil & Gas and Rendering applications. Nimbix operates unique high performance hybrid systems and accelerated servers in its Dallas, Texas datacenter.

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 private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.

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.
