SAN DIEGO, CA. November 7, 2012 – Tabor Communications Inc., (TCI) a leading international media, advertising, and communications company, today announced the debut of its newest online news and information portal covering energy-efficient and eco-friendly computing in the datacenter, Green Computing Report. Published in partnership with the Washington D.C.-based Green IT Council, Green Computing Report will serve the IT industry as a primary resource for news and information on the latest advancements taking place in energy efficient technologies designed for the data center.
The green computing publication will join Tabor Communications' data-intensive computing portfolio that includes HPCwire, Datanami, Digital Manufacturing Report, and HPC in the Cloud. Award winning journalist Richard Brandt, former Business Week tech correspondent and Editor-in-Chief of Upside magazine plays a lead role as the Managing Editor of Green Computing Report.
“Without well defined, consistent, and universally accepted best practices, policies, and direction, the IT industry cannot effectively continue to deliver a uniform model for enhancing energy efficiency and sustainability in today’s datacenter,” said Raj Kosuri, Executive Director for the Green IT Council. “What has been lacking is a comprehensive communication model dedicated to providing clear goals and guidance for improving overall efficiency and sustainability throughout datacenters worldwide, many of which are now being built in some of the most ecologically sensitive areas on earth. We believe that the introduction of Green Computing Report is a definitive step towards keeping datacenter managers current on the latest developments and trends on key issues such as facility location and design, systems efficiencies, and e-waste.”
“As datacenters continue to grow in size, capability, and capacity, energy efficiency, from a business operations and ecological standpoint, becomes a critical management concern,” said Tom Tabor, CEO and Founder of Tabor Communications. “Our mission in introducing Green Computing Report is to inform and educate IT professionals, managers, industry, and government on the need for deploying eco-friendly solutions on a global level. Green Computing Report will cover first-hand the emerging trends, technologies, and challenges associated with building more eco-efficient data centers, and how they influence the larger business and environmental contexts facing the IT industry today.”

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 private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.

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.
