AUSTIN, Tex., Jan. 28 – The Virtualization Practice, an industry analyst firm that provides unique analysis, commentary and resources on Virtualization and Cloud Computing, has released a new white paper titled "Secure Hybrid Cloud Reference Architecture," written by Analyst Edward L. Haletky.
While it is quite easy to implement various virtualization security offerings within a virtual environment, once one expands to the entire data center, a complete architecture is required. The entire data center includes virtual, physical and hybrid Cloud instances, all of which need to be secured. Security should extend into each aspect of a hybrid Cloud and not just be a part of the physical or virtual footprints.
"When we talk about hybrid Clouds, security becomes all about the data and not necessarily about the virtualization layers in which the data may reside," said Edward L. Haletky, The Virtualization Practice CEO and Analyst. "Building upon existing thoughts on hybrid Cloud security, this white paper provides a reference architecture into which Virtualization and Cloud security products can be implemented and managed in a secure fashion."

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 private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.

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.
