REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 9 – The Ethernet Switch market is undergoing a technological transformation in the data center, as virtualization changes where and how applications are connected to end users. To assess the market impact, Dell'Oro Group has created an advanced research report to analyze how disruptive the Cloud can be and how Ethernet Switch vendors are currently performing in the data center. The Report details projections for the Ethernet Switch market and for Software Defined Networking in the data center over the next five years.
"For the first time in the market, customers are consolidating data centers and connecting those servers to the network with three different speeds, Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet," said Alan Weckel, Vice President at Dell'Oro Group. "Moving infrastructure towards the hosted environment of the Cloud and looking towards Software Defined Networking is resulting in a battle for supremacy in data center. It is also causing unique requirements and solutions across the customers. The result is that there has never been a better time for new entrants or a better opportunity for existing vendors to gain share."
The report also indicates that Avaya, Brocade, Cisco, Dell, Extreme, HP, IBM, and Juniper are the largest vendors in the data center in terms of revenue for 2011.

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.
