Today NICE software in Italy announced that the company is to be acquired by Amazon Web Services, the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform. With its remote visualization platform, NICE delivers comprehensive Grid & Cloud Solutions for increasing user productivity to access applications and computing resources.
IDC has published the agenda for their next HPC User Forum. The event will take place April 11-13 in Tucson, AZ. “Don’t miss the chance to hear top experts on these high-innovation, high-growth areas of the HPC market. At this meeting, you’ll also hear about government initiatives to get ready for future-generation supercomputers, machine learning, and High Performance Data Analytics.”
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. For years, customers in Life Sciences, Manufacturing, Financial Services, and other Engineering and Research areas have used CycleCloud software to manage some of the world’s largest production cloud deployments.”
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.
In this video from the Intel HPC Developer Conference at SC15, David Pellerin, HPC Business Development Principal at Amazon Web presents: Use-Cases and Methods for Scalable Enterprise HPC in the Cloud.
High Performance Computing (HPC) in the cloud has become a hot topic with new offerings targeted at this market. The demands of technical computing professional to use the cloud for HPC workloads are different than that of a general enterprise software requirement. Performance is key, which requires a different infrastructure at the cloud providers premises.
For companies looking to test the viability of engineering in the cloud, Altair has teamed with Intel and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer an “HPC Challenge” for product design. In a nutshell, the program provides free cycles on AWS for up to 60 days, where users can run compute-intensive jobs for computer-aided engineering (CAE).
With more and more enterprises moving to the cloud, there is a growing demand for developers, information technology professionals, and forward-thinking business leaders with demonstrated knowledge of cloud computing. To meet this need, Amazon Web Services has announced AWS Educate, a major initiative designed to fundamentally transform how cloud computing is taught and how best practices are shared in higher education.
Today ANSYS announced that the company is making its flagship engineering simulation software available on the cloud via Amazon Web Services. The new ANSYS Enterprise Cloud running on AWS enables customers to scale their simulation capacity – including infrastructure and software assets – on demand, in response to changing business requirements, optimizing efficiency and cost while responding to the growing demand for wider use of the technology.
Since 2011, ONS (responsible for planning and operating the Brazilian Electric Sector) has been using AWS to run daily simulations using complex mathematical models. The use of the MIT StarCluster toolkit makes running HPC on AWS much less complex and lets ONS provision a high performance cluster in less than 5 minutes.
