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.”

Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.

Cloud computing is gaining ground in utilization by mid-sized institutions who are looking to expand their experimental high performance computing resources. As such, IBM released what they call Redbooks, in part to assist institutions’ movement of high performance computing applications to the cloud.
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.
