BRISTOL, England, Dec. 10 -- ClearSpeed Technology, the world leader in acceleration for high performance computing (HPC), today announced that Andrew "Andy" Kroese has joined as chief financial officer and board member. Based in San Jose, Calif., he will be responsible for leading ClearSpeed's finance strategy and will also be involved in working with ClearSpeed's global partners and customers.
A seasoned 20 year HP veteran, Kroese was most recently finance director of HP's world-wide Personal Systems Group (PSG WW) where he was responsible for financial management of the group's supply chain and customer support activities. As part of that responsibility, he lead the group's financial management of supply chain architecture, inventory, commodity procurement, and outsourced manufacturing.
"Andy brings an extensive range of IT industry and finance experience particularly in the area of worldwide operations effectiveness in delivering to customer needs," said Tom Beese, ClearSpeed chief executive officer. "I am confident that he will make a significant contribution to ClearSpeed's leadership and growth of our business."
As the world leader in acceleration technology for HPC, ClearSpeed acceleration is ideal for the most demanding applications for the financial services industry, government laboratories, and university research institutions where the constraints of energy and facilities space are significant barriers to delivering maximum performance.
ClearSpeed Technology is a semiconductor company that develops massively parallel coprocessors and accelerator boards delivering unmatched performance per watt for high performance computing applications on industry standard systems. ClearSpeed has offices in San Jose, Calif. and Bristol, UK and has over 50 patents granted with additional pending. For more information, visit www.clearspeed.com.

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
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).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

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.
