Radware joins the effort to develop the standard open cloud operating system and speed innovation in cloud technologies
MAHWAH, NJ, Dec. 14 — Radware, a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud datacenters, today announced that it has joined OpenStack, a global community of developers collaborating on an open source cloud operating system.
As workloads continue to transition into the cloud, there is a greater need for both public and private clouds to become more efficient by increasing application performance while reducing the risk of security breaches. As the emerging open standard for cloud infrastructure, OpenStack complements Radware's application delivery and application security solutions to be implemented across public, private and hybrid cloud environments.
"Application acceleration and attack prevention capabilities in the cloud are essential to ensure the smooth working of mission-critical applications," said Avi Chesla, chief technical officer, Radware. "Enterprises of all sizes that operate within public and private clouds will be able to benefit from Radware's expertise in application delivery, network and application security. We look forward to working with all companies involved with OpenStack, contributing code and providing architectural inputs based on our best practices in the areas of application delivery and information security for the future of cloud eco-systems."
OpenStack has grown to be a global software community of developers representing more than 130 companies, collaborating on a standard and massively scalable open source cloud operating system. The project aims to deliver solutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, massively scalable and feature rich. The technology consists of a series of interrelated projects delivering various components for a cloud infrastructure solution.
The news of Radware joining OpenStack comes on the heels of the Company's recent introduction of the industry's first application delivery fabric for the IT-as-a-Service economy. Radware ADC Fabric breaks new ground in virtualized application delivery by leveraging the concept of a virtual ADC (vADC) resource pool across both single and multiple datacenters. By implementing Radware ADC Fabric within virtual datacenters and replacing traditional ADCs with vADC instances, IT managers can now assign a vADC instance per application, department or customer. This essentially creates a fully virtualized application silo with full fault isolation for its own dedicated components (servers, storage, and vADCs), guaranteeing application performance and service level agreements. The ADC Fabric includes Radware AppShape, a technology providing an application perspective for shaping the application delivery tools within the datacenter to meet specific application needs. AppShape dramatically accelerates the rollout of new business applications and services, which can be integrated into the virtual datacenter and cloud eco-systems. Radware's ADC Fabric empowers IT managers, allowing them to be focused on business services rather than on IT products and hardware.
Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), is a global leader of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud datacenters. Its award-winning solutions portfolio delivers full resilience for business-critical applications, maximum IT efficiency, and complete business agility. Radware's solutions empower more than 10,000 enterprise and carrier customers worldwide to adapt to market challenges quickly, maintain business continuity and achieve maximum productivity while keeping costs down.

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.
