LUXEMBOURG, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, March 8 — NoMachine, a leading provider of remote access and hosted desktop delivery solutions for Linux and other platforms, announced that it has established its new headquarters in Luxembourg, with further offices planned for Riga and Poland.
The new headquarters will be a strategic centre for NoMachine and will have a central role in supporting its international growth. This is the latest opening of a number of new sites as NoMachine establishes itself across Europe. An R&D site in Georgia was opened in January 2012 with the aim of expanding development activities in Tbilisi.
Originating as an early player in open source technology, NoMachine offers remote access solutions for accessing files and applications on Linux as well as Windows, Mac and other platforms. These solutions include the top-ranked NX Server for Linux, known world-wide for its terminal server and application delivery capabilities used by many of the biggest organizations to provide employees with cross-platform remote access across continents. Its upcoming product “NoMachine” for Windows and Mac, a desktop sharing, multimedia streaming and file-transfer tool will expand that portfolio to consumers looking for an easy-to-use product that offers extensive functionality and speed: one of the main traits of all of NoMachine's remote computing software is its exclusive compression technology bringing a local-desktop experience to the user even though their desktop might be thousands of miles away.
Gaspare Tripi, General Manager of NoMachine Sàrl said: “NoMachine is very excited to be expanding not just its customer base through new product offerings, but also its offices. Putting NoMachine's global headquarters in Luxembourg was an obvious choice due to its central position between NoMachine's offices already in place, and the country’s successful track record in technology start-ups.”
NoMachine is the creator of NoMachine (NX) software, an enterprise-class solution for secure remote access, multi-platform application delivery, and hosted desktop deployment. NoMachine revolutionizes the way users access their computing resources across the Internet to make desktop access as easy and widespread as Web browsing. Regardless of location or the network environment, NoMachine's software provides real-time performance in remote sessions, automatically tuning itself to network bandwidth and latency parameters. It's upcoming version 4 will extend its renowned remote desktop capabilities for companies with Linux environments to the consumer, offering Windows and Mac users an intuitive remote access and desktop sharing solution with multimedia support, record and playback, file-transfer, bidirectional printing and much more.
Researchers from the Suddhananda Engineering and Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, India developed a job scheduling system, which they call Service Level Agreement (SLA) scheduling, that is meant to achieve acceptable methods of resource provisioning similar to that of potential in-house systems. They combined that with an on-demand resource provisioner to ensure utilization optimization of virtual machines.
Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)...
When considering moving excess or experimental HPC applications to a cloud environment, there will always be obstacles. Were that not the case, the cost effectiveness of cloud-based HPC would rule the high performance landscape. Jonathan Stewart Ward and Adam Barker of the University of St. Andrews produced an intriguing report on the state of cloud computing, paying a significant amount of attention to the problems facing cloud computing.
