TEL AVIV, Israel & SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Dec. 12 – Cloudyn, the leader in cloud optimization and Scalr, trailblazers in cloud deployment and automation, have partnered to enable integration of cost and infrastructure management. An integrated Scalr dashboard now provides customers with a seamless view of cost drivers, over-provisioned resources, optimization options and implementation recommendations.
“As a customer of both Cloudyn and Scalr, I love how their integration provides easy access to all my cloud cost and performance data from within my deployment console,” said Jeremy Koerber, Director of Technical Operations at BranchOut. “I see this as a great start towards the full automation of optimal reservation fulfillment and deployment rightsizing, helping BranchOut reduce tedious and time-consuming manual cloud management.”
“The partnership between Cloudyn and Scalr has created a cloud platform that provides our customers with what they’ve been asking for - the ability to view their current deployment, with insights into unused or unnecessary resources, alongside the management tools needed to confidently implement the optimization recommendations,” said Sebastian Stadil, CEO and Founder of Scalr.
Scalr customers can now access Cloudyn’s cloud cost management and optimization tools directly from their Scalr console. Cloudyn provides them with detailed reports highlighting cloud usage trends, spending inefficiencies along with recommendations for selecting best fit, custom pricing plans and deployments.
“The combined ease-of-use and comprehensive suite of cloud management tools that our partnership delivers, will radically transform cloud management by bringing together and streamlining the decision-making and fulfillment processes that can be such a large part of day-to-day cloud computing,” said Sharon Wagner, CEO and Founder of Cloudyn. “Together we can offer customers control mechanisms for costs, deployment and automation all from one easy-to-use dashboard application, a critical component of long-term use of the cloud for enterprises.”
Founded in 2011, Cloudyn offers organizations clarity and control of cloud costs, actionable recommendations for cost savings and maximized utilization of resources in a dynamic cloud environment. Already actively managing hundreds of thousands of cloud resources today, Cloudyn delivers an average of 40% cloud-related cost reductions to organizations with significant cloud investments in various industries worldwide. Privately held and backed by Elron Electronic Industries Ltd., Cloudyn’s team of software veterans combines extensive experience in cloud computing and network optimization with a proven track record in transforming innovative ideas into viable and valuable products.
Scalr is productivity software for technical operations professionals, otherwise known as a cloud management platform, focused on user productivity through ease-of-use and packaged automation. Organizations around the world use Scalr to deploy and manage highly available services on private, public, and hybrid clouds. It is available on premise, hosted, and as an open source package, and is widely deployed across five continents, over 30 countries, and is proud to serve such distinguished companies as Samsung and GE.

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.

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.
