Funding to underwrite aggressive hiring plans across IP development, sales and marketing
BOSTON, Sept. 24 — Cloud Technology Partners the leader in transforming businesses with cloud solutions, today announced the closing of a $2 million series A-2 round. The additional funding will be utilized to underwrite the company's continued aggressive hiring plans particularly in the area of intellectual property (IP) development, as well as sales, marketing and client services. This round brings the company's total funding to $5 million.
"Cloud computing has changed the way we think not only about technology, but business itself. It's not just about driving out costs anymore. The world now recognizes that virtually unlimited access to infrastructure, applications and services means that businesses can eliminate previous growth and competitive barriers and re-dedicate its resources to innovation and business differentiation," said Chris Greendale, Founder and CEO of Cloud Technology Partners.
"Our early and significant success has enabled Cloud Technology Partners to attract highly experienced A+ professionals that are truly the cream-of-the-crop – each boasting many, many years of acquired knowledge and expertise, as well as direct hands-on experience. It's what our clients depend upon." He concluded, "We are deeply gratified with the continued vote of confidence from our world-class investors, and thrilled with the opportunity it will afford us to maintain our growth trajectory. I am particularly excited about the significant contribution to this round from employees. It shows how much we all believe in the potential of this company."
Since Cloud Technology Partners' Series A round 15 months ago, the company is approaching 50 employees, most of whom have been directly involved with the conceptualization, strategic planning and/or physical build-out of many of the most notable private, public and hybrid clouds across the Fortune 500, both here in the US and internationally.

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.

he 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.
