Canadian cloud software firm announces Sept. 27 Hybrid Cloud Webinar featuring GigaOM Principal Research Director Jo Maitland, ActiveState CEO Bart Copeland
Sept. 19 — ActiveState, whose software enables developers and enterprises to innovate from code to cloud, today announced an upcoming webinar on the topic of hybrid cloud computing, titled "Making Hybrid Real – Practical Steps to Hybrid Cloud with Private PaaS." Next week's webinar will be led by ActiveState CEO, Bart Copeland,and will feature analysis from GigaOM Principal Research Director, Jo Maitland.
"Hybrid clouds are moving from myth to reality," Maitland said. "Enterprise innovators aren't waiting – they're adopting extensible, secure hybrid cloud computing technologies to support new ways of working."
"Cloud computing should no longer be an either/or proposition," Copeland said. "Today's – and more importantly, tomorrow's – enterprise demands the security of a private PaaS with the unlimited scalability of the public cloud. Hybrid can deliver that."
In the Thursday, Sept. 27 webinar, Maitland and Copeland will address key hybrid cloud issues:
"Some industry pundits aren't exactly bullish on hybrid cloud computing adoption," Copeland said. "In this webinar, Jo and I will assess the cloud computing status quo and discuss why enterprises can't afford to postpone hybrid consideration. And we'll show how enterprise private PaaS technology like Stackato from ActiveState can make hybrid cloud computing real. Today."

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. Use this quick article to jump-start your own thinking on heterogeneous computing.
