Today the ISC Cloud & Big Data conference announced that their pre-conference program will center around eight engaging workshops. The event takes place Sept. 28-30 in Frankfurt, Germany.
Researchers at the University of Lincoln in the U.K. are using the BlueBEAR HPC service to simulate the use of protons for CT imaging. Generally reliant on X-rays to image the body’s composition and healthy tissue location before treatment, doctors are looking to the the project to build a device capable of delivering protons in a clinical setting.
Today Cycle Computing announced its participation in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Through its membership, Cycle Computing will enable enterprise users with big compute problems to fully leverage the advantages of cloud by running their workloads on cloud native software. Finance, research and manufacturing organizations are increasingly moving their high performance and high throughput workloads to the cloud; Cycle and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation will bridge the gap from internal infrastructure to cloud to ease and accelerate their transition.
In this video from ISC 2015, Oliver Tennert from Transtec describes how the company’s Remote Visualization solutions are empowering customers with flexibility for their computing workloads. “We have a lot of customers from the scientific as well as financial or telecommunications areas, where analyzing huge amounts of data in the shortest period of time possible is a critical factor of success.”
Today Univa joins Google, IBM, and other world-class companies founding members of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The new CNCF organization will accelerate the development of cloud native applications and services by advancing a technology stack for data center containerization and microservices.
Today IBM announced that the company is now offering Nvidia Tesla K80 GPU accelerators on bare metal cloud servers. With the new offering, IBM Cloud is bringing high-speed performance to the SoftLayer cloud infrastructure, enabling companies to build supercomputing clusters without having to expand their existing technology infrastructure.
