CUPERTINO, Calif., Dec. 3 – SugarCRM, the market-leading customer relationship management (CRM) company that enables effective customer engagement enterprise-wide, today announced a new technology integration with VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure. The integration between SugarCRM and VMware vFabric Application Director 5.0 allows organizations to choose the type of cloud environment that best aligns with their business needs.
VMware vFabric Application Director 5.0 is an application provisioning solution that allows customers to reduce application deployment times from weeks to minutes and deploy any application into any cloud across the application lifecycle. With the release of VMware vFabric Application Director 5.0, applications can be deployed to heterogeneous clouds.
“SugarCRM's product line is used by VMware customers for critical customer information and driving customer engagement across the organization,” said Shahar Erez, Director, Application Management Products for VMware. “We are pleased to see SugarCRM provide a blueprint for a cloud-ready portable CRM solution for large enterprises that can be easily deployed, scaled, and updated in their private, public, or hybrid cloud environments using VMware vFabric Application Director.”
“Giving customers the ability to run their CRM system in a variety of cloud environments provides a real business advantage to organizations as their needs evolve over time,” said Chuck Coulson, VP, Business Development and Alliances for SugarCRM. “By collaborating with VMware, our customers have the ability to run on demand, on premise, or in the cloud. VMware vFabric Application Director makes it significantly easier to support the rapidly growing number of public and private cloud environments, giving customers the highest level of choice in the CRM market.”

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.
