SEVILLE, Spain, Dec. 14 – Besol, the Spanish-based cloud broker creator of Tapp.in, an orchestration framework that allows service providers to provide an easy on-board to new cloud services for their customers and for enterprises with multiple cloud suppliers, today announced that it has launched a partnership with New Relic, the all-in-one web application performance management provider for the cloud and the datacenter. All Tapp.in customers will receive a Standard subscription to New Relic free of charge, fully integrated into the Tapp.in product suite.
Through the already deployed SSO integration, Besol will offer its customers and SPs real-time user monitoring, server monitoring, application monitoring, and availability monitoring in a single solution, enabling developers and operations teams to quickly and cost effectively monitor, troubleshoot, and tune application performance.
“Integrating New Relic into Tapp.in is another step forward into bringing best-of-breed solutions within our Cloud brokerage platform and ultimately offer a one-stop, highly-visual service management experience across different cloud providers" said Hector Rodriguez, CEO of Besol. "New Relic will let our customers monitor performance from the end user experience, through servers, and down to the line of app code.”
"Besol is an invaluable resource through which companies can easily and rapidly take advantage of leading tools and technologies," said Bill Lapcevic, New Relic vice-president of business development. "As Tapp’s growing world-class network of service providers, together we’re bringing proven app performance management to an extensive IaaS partner network in Europe and changing the way companies do business.”
Tapp.in end-users, and the customers of service providers with licensed rights to Tapp’s service management console, will also benefit from New Relic’s proven capabilities for monitoring, triaging and diagnosing performance issues throughout the web environment. Moreover, using New Relic’s real-time monitoring data will also allow Tapp.in to further perfect its SaaS cloud brokerage and drag-and-drop migration platform, a longer-tail freemium business model focused on SMBs and targeted at the US market. Every Tapp.in customer will be automatically assigned a Standard New Relic account free of charge and can start using it by logging into their Tapp.in management console and clicking on the New Relic tab.
Besol, through its Tapp.in platform, provides infrastructure management and brokerage across multiple cloud (IaaS) providers. Tapp makes it easy for companies to deploy their infrastructure and manage their servers in a public cloud environment with the ability to seamlessly migrate between public cloud providers. Tapp also provides a DNS administration, DR, cost control, load balancing, wizards and application performance management. Tapp is currently compatible with the largest IaaS vendors and was named 2012 Cool Vendor by Gartner in Cloud Services Brokerage Enablers and selected finalist in 2012 Structure Europe.
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.

he 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.
