BURLINGTON, Mass., March 6 — VMTurbo, the leading provider of software-defined control for cloud and virtualized environments, today announced that the company’s president and chief executive officer, N. Louis Shipley, will be speaking on the "technology disruptors" panel for software-defined and virtualized data centers on March 13 at 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in Boston, Mass. Shipley will be joined by Tom Erickson, CEO of Acquia, Doron Kempel, CEO of SimpliVity, and William Koss, VP of marketing at Plexxi.
“Data centers are increasing their use of virtualization, therefore increasing management complexity,” said Shipley. “Software-defined control is advancing how enterprises manage and utilize their respective data centers by reducing the need for manual intervention, assuring application performance, and driving down costs. I’m excited to discuss key issues pertaining to software-defined data centers and to hear from the fellow experts on the panel.”
VMTurbo delivers a new approach to meet the challenges associated with complex virtual and cloud environments. Operations Manager controls these environments by assuring application performance while utilizing the infrastructure as efficiently as possible. The product’s software-defined control offloads and automates decision-making from operational staff instead of just collecting data and providing alerts. VMTurbo customers are experiencing significant efficiency gains by reducing time spent troubleshooting and maximizing infrastructure utilization.
The invitation-only event highlights five key technology themes: cloud, big data, BYOIT, flash and software-defined. Confirmed participants include Salesforce, NetApp, Infoblox, Riverbed, QLIK, Aspen Technology, HubSpot and SciQuest.
About VMTurbo Operations Manager
VMTurbo Operations Manager is the only solution on the market that understands application performance, resource utilization and capacity constraints in a virtualized data center, and is able to automatically adjust allocation to ensure service based on priority. Since its initial release, more than 9,000 cloud service providers and enterprises worldwide have deployed the VMTurbo Software-Defined Control platform to gain greater control and prevent performance issues across their virtual infrastructure.
VMTurbo delivers a Software-Defined Control platform for cloud and virtualized environments. The Company’s solutions utilize its Economic Scheduling Engine to dynamically adjust configuration, resource allocation and workload placement to meet service levels and business goals. It is the only technology on the market capable of closing the loop in IT operation by automating the decision-making process to maintain the environment in the desired state. The VMTurbo platform first launched in August 2010 and since that time more than 9,000 cloud service providers and enterprises worldwide have deployed the platform, including British Telecom, Omnicare and L-3 Communications. Using VMTurbo, customers ensure that applications get the resources they need to operate reliably, while utilizing infrastructure and human resources in the most efficient way.
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.
