Vancouver, BC, Nov. 6 – PEER 1 Hosting, the global IT hosting provider, announced today that it is exhibiting at Super Computing 2012, November 10-16, 2012, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. At booth #115, PEER 1 Hosting will highlight its HPC Self-Serve Cloud offering and Managed HPC Cloud offering, which give customers a high performance cloud computing environment with all the flexibility and accessibility of the cloud, but without the hefty price tag or vendor lock-in.
Powered by PEER 1 Hosting’s public cloud platform, the HPC Self-Serve Cloud fuses virtual and physical servers with a private network to give customers a seamless, self-serve solution that is both fast and secure. Ideal for handling intermittent projects, it allows customers to deploy up to 665 teraflops in as little as fifteen minutes and is available on a pay-by-the-hour or monthly basis.
The Managed HPC Cloud is ideal for businesses with a consistently high volume of projects that require more HPC power and a custom supercomputing infrastructure. Inherently flexible when compared to the more standardized and utility-based Self-Serve HPC Cloud, it allows for greater GPU-based HPC computing resources and flexibility in hardware and additional services like load balancing, proprietary operating systems and sophisticated networking solutions.
“Our HPC offerings help companies seize new market opportunities with superior agility to set them apart from the competition,” said Greg Rusu, General Manager of PEER 1 Hosting’s public cloud division. “Being able to tap into on-demand HPC resources in ways that are fast, secure, reliable, scalable, and, most importantly, affordable, gives our customers an added level of responsiveness to their most pressing business needs.”
Super Computing 2012, the premiere international high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis conference, brings together as many as 10,000 professionals from academia, industry and government. Super Computing 2012 will feature one of the largest exhibitions in conference history, with 366 exhibitors from industry and research institutions around the world.

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.
