Oct. 1 — LuxCloud, a market leader in cloud services distribution, will be a Silver Sponsor at the EuroCloud Congress, to be held in Luxembourg, October 8-9, 2012. The event hosts the European cloud computing industry and offers excellent opportunities to engage with members, across the board, who deal with cloud computing applications.
EuroCloud Congress – “Growth through Cloud”
This is the third successful year for the congress as it continues to attract the best of the best from all across Europe. It brings leaders from the cutting edge of the cloud industry, businesses currently migrating to the cloud, software developers, and governmental policy makers.
Policy workshops will be held and are a focus at the event; previous years’ discussions resulted in the publication of the 16-Point Action Plan for Cloud Computing in Europe. A group of ICT experts, including service providers, software developers, investors and integration partners, contributed to the writing of a set of principles addressing the future of cloud computing in Europe; featuring advice on creating trust and how European businesses will benefit from cloud computing.
LuxCloud @ EuroCloud
As a Silver Sponsor of the EuroCloud Congress, LuxCloud will be exhibiting their services and products. The team will be highlighting the latest addition to their portfolio, Hosted365; with full mobility and flexibility, it is a bundle of cloud services that allows service providers, telecoms and value added resellers the opportunity to offer a secure hosted desktop.
Marco Houwen, Founder and CEO of LuxCloud said, “This is an important and extremely educational event for anyone involved in the cloud industry, not only are the networking opportunities hugely beneficial, there is also much to be learnt about ‘best practice’ in the future of cloud computing.” Continuing, Marco said, “We attend this event to, not only present our company and portfolio, but also to garner information from cloud innovators across Europe.”

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.
