Today Comsol announced the availability of COMSOL Multiphysics software on the Rescale Cloud simulation platform. “For customers seeking HPC resources for bigger analyses, this important initiative with Rescale allows our users to take full advantage of both the COMSOL Multiphysics software and Rescale’s secure and flexible simulation environments,” said Phil Kinnane, COMSOL’s VP of Business Development.
“The virtually infinite scale of cloud compute resources is now within easy reach from either existing network-attached or object-based storage. No longer is the location of your storage a roadblock to reaping the ease, timeliness, and cost offered by cloud compute services. Avere’s Enterprise Cloud Bursting solution utilizes the Virtual FXT Edge filer (vFXT) which puts high-performance, scalable NAS where you need it to enable massive compute on-demand for enterprise apps with simple installation and zero hardware maintenance. Avere makes your NAS data accessible to cloud compute without experiencing latency or requiring that your data be moved to the cloud.”
NSF’s iPlant Rebrands to CyVerse, Provides Data Management and Computation Across Scientific Disciplines
The National Science Foundation’s premier data management platform for the life sciences has rebranded, shedding the project’s original label of iPlant Collaborative and donning the new name CyVerse. The rebrand emphasizes the project’s capacity to provide data management and computation services beyond plant sciences, for collaborations across scientific disciplines.
Today Nimbix announced plans to use Infomart Dallas to support the infrastructure needs of its upgraded HPC cloud platform, JARVICE 2.0. Infomart Dallas provides Nimbix with a high-density data center complete with industry-leading connectivity options, access to the core Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) network hub, and the low-cost power it needs to deliver its innovative HPC solutions.
Today ProphetStor Data Services rolled out a reference cloud computing platform with Mellanox based on the open-source projects OpenStack and Ceph. The solution leverages each company’s respective strength in software-defined-storage, state-of-the-art server hardware, and high-speed networking. Based on ProphetStor Federator SDS, this joint project addresses the key issues of OpenStack’s storage management solution as well as improving the functionality and performance of Ceph, the de facto storage backend for OpenStack.
Rob Futrick presented this talk at SC15. “Cycle Computing’s CycleCloud software suite is the leading cloud orchestration, provisioning, and data management platform for Big Compute, Big Data, and large technical computing applications running on any public, private, or internal environment.

In this video from the Cycle Computing the HPC in the Cloud Educational Series, Jeff Layton, HPC Principal Architect at Amazon Web Services, explains concepts and options around using storage in the AWS Cloud.
The InterCloud-HPC 2016 conference has issued its Call for Papers. As part of The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2016), the event takes place July 18-22 in Innsbruck, Austria.
In this video, Dr. David Southwell from Obsidian Strategics discusses conventional InfiniBand technology and goes on to describe how the company’s Longbow, Crossbow and Bowman devices enable what is generally considered as an ‘indoor use only’ protocol to be deployed at scale with security over global distances. The resulting Global InfiniBand Fabrics can be used for a variety of purposes including technical computing, big data migration and streaming distribution.
Today NetApp announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire SolidFire for $870 million in cash. Founded in 2010, SolidFire is a market leader in all-flash storage systems built for the next-generation data center where simple scaling, set-and-forget management, assured performance and multi-tenancy, and cloud economic models are driving new market growth.
