STERLING, Va., Jan. 9 – IceWEB, Inc., a leading provider of Unified Data Storage appliances for cloud and virtual environments as well as secure, infinitely scalable Cloud Services, announced today that Ongoing Operations, a leading cloud storage provider, has purchased an additional high-performance IceWEB 7000 highly redundant and scalable unified data storage system.
"This represents our second purchase from IceWEB. The IceWEB 7000 more than fulfills our needs, is performance-based, provides not only cost savings but the reliability and protection that remain invaluable to our business,” stated Kyle Stutzman, Chief Technology Officer, Ongoing Operations.
Rob Howe, CEO of IceWEB, added, “For IceWEB to be ‘the choice’ of such a highly respected company like Ongoing Operations, is very encouraging. Winning this business after being put through an arduous bidding and selection process against the rest of the field is particularly important for us. I want to reiterate, this is a repeat sale of hardware, software and services. That is testament that our sales efforts are gaining all-important traction. We expect many more to come.”
In a competitive procurement process involving traditional storage vendors, only the IceWEB 7000 system fully satisfied all of the customer's unified data storage and performance requirements, including:
Additionally, IceWEB’s Disaster Recovery Site and Complex Citrix Installation as well as the European replication connection were critical components in Ongoing Operation’s decision process.
Ongoing Operations was formed in 2005 as a business continuity CUSO by a group of credit unions looking for better disaster recovery solutions. We have grown from serving a handful of local organizations to over 500 clients nationwide, due to the growing complexities of disaster recovery planning. Today the Company is owned by about twenty credit unions all around the United States. The company has evolved to work with both Credit Unions and companies that value high quality technology, service and security. The company offers a full disaster recovery solution as well as a complete cloud solution that is fully hosted and managed out of multiple data centers with very high levels of uptime and great flexibility.
IceWEB manufactures award-winning, high performance unified data storage appliances with enterprise storage management capabilities at a fraction of the price of traditional providers, while reducing space, power and cooling requirements and simplifying storage management for land-based, virtual and cloud environments.
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.
