SPRINGBORO, Ohio, March 19 — IO, the leading provider of Data Center 2.0 technology for the world's largest enterprises, governments and service providers, today announced the launch of IO Ohio, the company's latest Data Center as a Service (DCaaS) deployment, which went live in less than 90 days.
Participating in the IO Ohio Grand Opening celebration last night was LexisNexis, the Dayton-based leader in providing online legal and business information. LexisNexis is an existing IO customer that has acquired additional DCaaS in IO Ohio. According to Terry Williams , Vice President, Managed Technology Services at LexisNexis, "Extending our footprint to IO Ohio enables us to support customers with next-generation Data Center 2.0 technology. IO DCaaS provides the secure, always-on infrastructure that our customers require for their mission-critical legal applications and archives."
Also in attendance was Springboro Mayor John Agenbroad , who commented, "With its strong reputation for meeting the needs of some of the most sophisticated technology users in the world, IO is a welcome addition to the greater Dayton tech community and a great new business partner in the City of Springboro."
The Dayton area is seen as an emerging tech hub for the Midwest. A December 2012 study by the Bay Area Council Economic Institute cited the Dayton area as having the nation's third-largest increase in high-technology employment growth among the top metros in the nation from 2010 to 2011.
"We're pleased to be able to offer DCaaS in Ohio," said Rick Crutchley, Senior Vice President of Global DCaaS Sales for IO. "By utilizing IO.Anywhere and IO.OS, we were able to bring IO Ohio online in less than 90 days, demonstrating the technology's ability to deliver data center capacity where and when it's needed to meet the growing demands of customers. And, we're proud to continue our relationship with LexisNexis as they adopt a Data Center 2.0 strategy for their IT operation in Ohio."
By leveraging IO.Anywhere and IO.OS, customers at IO Ohio can support cloud computing, high-availability applications, business continuity, data center consolidation and other strategic technology initiatives.
IO designs, engineers and delivers data center products for the world's largest enterprises, governments and service providers. IO owns and operates data centers for hundreds of customers, and has leveraged this experience to build a next-generation Data Center 2.0 cloud enabling technology platform. IO.Anywhere data center products provide enterprise-class infrastructure that can be delivered as Data Center as a Service and rapidly deployed as a product to customer sites anywhere in the world. IO developed the first data center infrastructure operating system, IO.OS, to provide the intelligent control needed to maximize utilization, resiliency, energy efficiency and global data center performance. IO is a privately held company headquartered in Phoenix, Ariz.
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.
