A functional demonstration Many organizations are wrestling with the economics of cloud computing. This is especially true in high-performance computing (HPC) and analytics where applications often demand clustered, scaled-out infrastructure. These types of workloads are often “spiky” or unpredictable and the costs associated with infrastructure can be substantial. As a few examples: A (...)
Let’s face it - IT infrastructure is expensive. This is especially true of the type of infrastructure used for clustered HPC and analytic applications. For people not familiar with distributed workload management, claims around cost-savings can sound fanciful, so in short this post I wanted to take the time to clearly (...)
Your organization might have deployed a cluster or grid on site. But can these resources always meet your peak demands? For example, what happens when several large projects move into the same simulation and design phase at the same time? Simply adding hardware to address peak workload requirements, especially if they (...)

Bringing Enterprise-grade resource management to OpenStack clouds OpenStack is quickly emerging as a de-facto standard for provisioning and managing public and private IaaS cloud infrastructures. It has several advantages over proprietary solutions including that it is open source, it supports multiple operating environments and hypervisors, and with so many vendors backing (...)
For more than a year, I have been talking to Cloud Application Architects at MSPs and Telcos around the world looking to develop super scalable storage-based applications to create new businesses for their organizations. They want to do everything in software and drop it on commodity hardware like they see (...)
