NEW YORK, N.Y., March 8 — 451 Research, a division of The 451 Group, is extremely pleased to announce that industry experts Al Sadowski and Liam Eagle have joined the 451 Research team.
The lines between traditional colocation, hosting, and network service providers are blurring. Cloud and virtualization technologies continue to shape the way services are delivered, with these providers moving more aggressively to cloud-style provisioning platforms. At the same time, disintermediation along the IT value chain is spurring these same providers into adjacent services. Al and Liam – and the entire Internet Infrastructure Services research team – will be at the forefront of these transformative changes, expanding the scope and depth of 451 Research's analysis.
For more than 20 years, Al has held management positions in software development, network operations, product development and product management at AT&T, Global Crossing and Level 3 Communications. He led global teams that developed customer care applications, defined cloud strategies, managed colocation product portfolios, and launched multiple network-based managed services for the enterprise sector. Al is PMP-certified, and holds a BS in Business Administration from Bryant University, and an MS in Management from Stevens Institute of Technology.
Liam Eagle covers managed hosting, cloud, and mass-market hosting for the Internet Infrastructure Services practice. Prior to joining 451 Research, Liam covered the hosting services market as Editor-in-Chief of Web Host Industry Review for more than 10 years, where he had a front-row seat to many of the transformative trends shaping the industry, including the emergence of virtualization and cloud technologies, and the development of the partner ecosystem that underpins the hosting market. Liam also served as Co-Chair of HostingCon for several years, where he built the educational program for one of the industry's most highly regarded and well-attended events. Liam holds a Bachelor of Journalism degree from Ryerson University in Toronto.
"Al and Liam bring a wealth of experience, insight, and expertise to the Internet Infrastructure Services practice," said Simon Carruthers, Chief Operating Officer, 451 Research. "With their knowledge of cloud and hosting markets – and their long-standing involvement in the industry – they are strong and welcome additions to the 451 Research team."

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.

The 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.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
04/02/2012 | AMD | Developers today are just beginning to explore the potential of heterogeneous computing, but the potential for this new paradigm is huge. This brief article reviews how the technology might impact a range of application development areas, including client experiences and cloud-based data management. As platforms like OpenCL continue to evolve, the benefits of heterogeneous computing will become even more accessible.
