NEW YORK, N.Y., Jan. 3 – The 451 Group, parent company of 451 Research & Uptime Institute, today announced their acquisition of Yankee Group, the preeminent research, data and advisory firm equipping enterprises to profit in a mobile world. With Yankee Group, the 451 Group sees an exciting opportunity to extend The 451 Group's operating philosophy of long-term, sustainable, profitable and global growth – and, most importantly, to provide an expanding and richer array of products and services to their clients.
Founded in 1970 by Howard Anderson, Yankee Group emerged as the first independent information technology market research and advisory firm focused on the telecommunications industry. Throughout its history, Yankee Group maintained and extended its reputation for independent thought leadership in emerging IT and communications technologies. Today, with more analysts covering the mobility market than any other analyst firm, Yankee Group is the thought leader in providing insight and data for a mobility revolution that it forecasts to be a $3 trillion market opportunity by 2016.
Since 2010, Yankee Group has been led by CEO Terry Waters. Post-acquisition, Terry will continue as CEO of Yankee Group, reporting 451's Chairman and CEO, Martin V. McCarthy. Terry’s team will join the 200+ professionals at The 451 Group, and Yankee Group will operate as an independent division of The 451 Group. For over four decades, the insights of Yankee Group have served the communications industry and, more recently, the emerging mobility marketplace. Mobility is a huge driver of innovation, and it substantially impacts the evolving enterprise and broader consumer IT marketplace we serve, analyze and provide insight on for our 451 Research clients. Having Yankee Group insight and data will also inform 451's focus on the evolution of Digital Infrastructure and further their thought leadership on its future expansion and strategy.
In the coming weeks and months, Yankee Group CEO Terry Waters and 451 Group CEO Martin McCarthy will share developments as they complete the post-acquisition activities and begin to realize the benefits of having Yankee Group insight and data as part of The 451 Group.

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.
