SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 19 — LogicMonitor, the leading SaaS-based monitoring solution, today announced Gold Sponsorship of Zumasys’ Zumapalooza IT infrastructure technology event, September 23-25 in Las Vegas. LogicMonitor will showcase its comprehensive hosted monitoring solution, which enables companies to monitor their entire infrastructure – networks, servers, virtualization, applications, storage, and websites – from the cloud.
Zumasys, a leading provider of customized cloud computing solutions for SMBs across North America, leverages LogicMonitor to monitor their state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform, built on the latest virtualization technologies from VMware, NetApp, Cisco, and Citrix. The SaaS-based solution simplifies monitoring today's complex, multi-vendor data centers, and eliminates the burden of managing an on-premise monitoring infrastructure.
LogicMonitor Founder and Chief Product Officer Steve Francis will also be on hand to speak to attendees on the topic of Monitoring as the New Profit Center. “Many companies consider infrastructure monitoring to be just another cost center,” says Francis. “But the monitoring data we collect and aggregate can tell compelling stories about your business if you know where and how to look at it. I’m going to give some compelling examples of companies that turned their monitoring data into tangible business benefits and profits.”
Zumapalooza 2012 takes place at the Red Rock Casino-Resort-Spa in Las Vegas. The three-day infrastructure technology event will feature breakout sessions on Disaster Recovery, Public/Private Cloud Computing, Custom Mobile Software Applications, Storage/Virtualization, Security, and more. Attendees will also be treated to a private presentation by Crush It! Author and social media authority Gary Vaynerchuk, as well as a private tour of the 407,000 square foot SuperNAP, the tenth largest data center in the world.
Companies can get immediate access to a 14 day free trial of the full version of LogicMonitor at http://www.LogicMonitor.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.

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.
