SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 11 — Intersect360 Research, a leading market intelligence, research, and consulting advisory practice for the High Performance Computing industry, announced today that it has hired Michael Feldman, a 35-year computer industry veteran, to augment its analyst team.
Feldman, recognized as an expert in the HPC industry worldwide, is well-known as the former managing editor of HPCwire, where he spent eight years as one of the foremost predictors of HPC trends. Feldman was also the cohost, along with Intersect360 Research CEO Addison Snell, of the insightful and popular weekly HPCwire Soundbite podcast.
“Having worked with Michael as a close partner for years, I already know what an established expert he is in HPC,” said Snell. “More importantly, he is universally esteemed by buyers and makers of HPC technology as one of the preeminent names in HPC.”
With the addition of Feldman to its analyst team, Intersect360 Research is poised to advance its profile even further as the leading source of market-driven, end-user-based research in the HPC space. In addition to his broad knowledge of the entire HPC industry, Feldman brings an in-depth knowledge of processor technologies, including the emerging field of accelerators. Feldman will contrbute to Intersect360 Research’s syndicated research reports as well as to client-specific deliverables such as white papers, webinars, and consulting engagements.
“I am excited to be joining such a talented team of individuals and am looking forward to bringing my expertise to Intersect360 Research’s business,” said Feldman. “High Performance Computing has grown into a very diverse and complex market, making the analyst's job especially challenging and more important than ever for HPC vendors and users.”
Previous to his tenure at HPCwire, Feldman spent a number of years as a programmer and analyst at Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) and later as a software engineer with Aonix Corporation. He also developed software tools for the US Department of Defense and other government agencies across a variety of hardware platforms. Feldman holds a B.S. degree in Microbiology from the University of Maryland and a B.S in Computer Science from Chapman University. He resides in Napa, California.

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 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.

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.
