SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 6 — EVault, Inc., a Seagate Company, today announced it is joining the OpenStack community, a global community of technologists, developers, researchers, corporations and cloud computing experts delivering a massively scalable cloud operating system. EVault will be both contributing to ongoing OpenStack development, and working to add OpenStack support to its cloud storage services.
EVault provides onsite, cloud and cloud-connected data protection solutions to help organizations protect distributed environments, supported by a secure, reliable cloud storage infrastructure and backed by the highest quality customer service. EVault has been a leader in the industry’s move to hybrid storage models, with a uniquely integrated ecosystem of EVault storage software, SaaS, managed services and appliances that help ensure customers maintain business continuity.
“EVault is proud to have been a key contributor to cloud business adoption, having first introduced cloud backup solutions 15 years ago. EVault is joining the OpenStack community of software developers collaborating on this scalable open source cloud management platform,” said George Hoenig, vice president, Open Storage, EVault. “EVault’s parent company, Seagate, announced its commitment to working with the Open Source community on cloud-optimized hardware and software systems. EVault plans to build upon OpenStack, and to work closely with Seagate to design and deliver reliable, cost-effective, and simple to use cloud storage services.”
EVault intends to focus its contributions around OpenStack Swift. Swift is a highly available, distributed object store that organizations can use to store large amounts of data efficiently, safely, and inexpensively. “Swift's fully distributed architecture allows for extreme scalability. Its redundant and self-healing properties provide for enterprise class durability while simultaneously keeping storage management costs to a minimum,” Hoenig added.
More than 38,000 companies rely on EVault cloud-connected backup and recovery services. Delivered by a team of data recovery experts and using the very best cloud-connected technology, EVault backup solutions seamlessly integrate on-premises and online backup data protection for fast, local data access and ensured cloud disaster recovery. Optimized for distributed environments and backed by an ironclad cloud, EVault technology also powers the offerings of cloud services providers, data centers, telcos, ISVs, and many others. EVault is a Seagate Company.
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.

he 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.
