Riverbed executive to discuss modernizing and optimizing storage and data protection architecture
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 24 — Riverbed Technology, the performance company, today announced its participation at Storage Decisions New York 2012, taking place September 24-25, 2012 at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn, NY. At the conference, Riverbed (booth #15) will demonstrate its solutions for consolidating data, accelerating disaster recovery, and moving backups to the cloud. These demonstrations will include showcases on Granite edge virtual server infrastructure (edge-VSI), the Steelhead appliance, and the Whitewater cloud storage gateway appliance. Additionally, Jerome Noll, marketing director at Riverbed, will deliver a presentation highlighting how storage practitioners can modernize their storage and data protection architecture.
Organizations worldwide are using Riverbed's broad suite of performance solutions that span wide area network (WAN) optimization, edge-VSI, application-aware network performance management (NPM), application delivery, web content optimization (WCO), and cloud data protection for backup and disaster recovery (DR). To overcome performance challenges associated with DR and business continuity, many organizations are deploying Steelhead products to accelerate DR making the process more efficient and reliable, as well as Whitewater cloud storage gateway appliances to enhance data protection, thereby improving their recovery time (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO).
To support customers that are restructuring their IT architecture to achieve complete consolidation, Riverbed introduced Granite. Edge-VSI, enabled by the Riverbed Granite appliance, allows organizations to consolidate and manage all edge servers in the data center. Edge-VSI extends centrally managed data to distributed end users, enabling IT to fully consolidate branch servers, applications, and storage to the data center, yet deliver services to the edge as if they were local. Riverbed will be showcasing Granite in its booth at Storage Decisions.
"Granite edge virtual server infrastructure decouples storage from compute, allowing data to be completely consolidated in the data center yet presented to end-users and applications at the edge as if it were local. As a result, enterprises deliver uncompromised performance to workers in branch offices while IT organizations centrally manage, backup, provision, patch, expand, and protect data from the data center."
- Miles Kelly, senior director, product marketing, Steelhead and Granite appliances at Riverbed

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.
