AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 17 -- SMC Networks, a leading provider of advanced, high performance networking solutions for the SMB and enterprise markets, will be showcasing the industry's first available 10GBASE-T networking solution, revealing its new family of managed service platforms and announcing a number of key technology partnerships at the SC Conference, Nov. 17-20, 2008, at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.
SMC Networks will demonstrate the industry's first complete 10G Ethernet solution, including the TigerSwitch 24-port 10G Managed Switch (SMC8724-10BT) and Tiger Card 10G Server Adapter (SMC10GPCIe-10BT), at SC08 (booth #1741). The solution, which is the only system that is capable of meeting the full 100 meter distance IEEE specification, incorporates innovative technology from cPacket Networks and Solarflare Communications to provide real-time, wire-speed network visibility and management, and maximum I/O performance to support critical applications such as cluster computing, high-performance computing and real-time business applications.
Also making its debut at SC08 will be SMC's Tiger Access Managed Services Platform, a family of integrated hardware and software solutions that enable the VARs and IT administrators to remotely monitor and manage their networks through a standard Web browser. The Managed Service Platform product family is based upon storage and processor technology from Intel, and ships with Microsoft Windows Server Solutions to ensure easy and seamless integration into the existing network environment.
SMC will also announce the vast improvements to its three-tier Elite Partner Program. In addition to increased discounts, increased reseller margins and new training programs, SMC has launched a new partner program Website that will make it easier and more profitable for VARs and resellers to promote and sell SMC's broad family of networking solutions for the SMB and enterprise markets.
"We're particularly excited about our participation in this year's SC Conference as we're launching a variety of products and technologies that empower companies to implement the latest cutting-edge applications, and provide them with a greater level of control and manageability over the network than ever before at budget-friendly price-points," explained Keith Alexis, vice president of sales for SMC Networks. "Our booth will be filled with product and technology demonstrations that will showcase the innovation, high-performance, robust functionality, and industry-leading value that our networking solutions bring to the SMB and enterprise sectors."

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 Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

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.
