Spectra expands on open storage and preventative error identification initiatives with BlueScale 10.5
AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 18 -- SC08 -- Spectra Logic, the data storage innovator, is developing the next revision of the BlueScale management software, the common interface across its T-series tape libraries and nTier backup and archive disk appliances. BlueScale 10.5 offers new features that simplify data storage and boost backup reliability in enterprise and HPC environments.
BlueScale retains all of its existing features, including Spectra BlueScale Encryption with key management, EnergyAudit power monitor, Media Lifecycle Management and AutoSupport. BlueScale 10.5 adds these new functionalities:
BlueScale 10.5 features enable open storage options to ease operations in custom and HPC environments:
BlueScale 10.5 promotes proactive problem identification, reporting and support:
"Spectra Logic's goal is to identify solutions and to develop features that our customers' environments demand," said Molly Rector, Spectra Logic's VP of product management. "BlueScale 10.5 was designed with HPC and enterprise customer pain points in mind."
BlueScale software was introduced in 1994 and comes standard, free of charge, with the Spectra T-series tape libraries: the Spectra T50e, T120, T200, T380 and T950; and nTier SATA-based backup and archive appliances: the nTier 300, 500 and 700. BlueScale 10.5 will ship in late December 2008.
About Spectra Logic Corporation
Spectra Logic custom-builds innovative backup and archive solutions for secondary storage, to protect data after it migrates from primary disk. More than 20,000 companies worldwide have implemented Spectra Logic solutions to address tiered storage needs. With Spectra Logic solutions, no single technology is advocated at any customer site. Instead, Spectra architects a customized blend of software and hardware to create the right solution to meet each customer's needs. Spectra Logic solutions provide features that are built in, not bolted on, so customers can easily add capacity, encryption, deduplication, energy monitoring, media health reporting, and much more -- in the field, when needs change. Spectra Logic is available 24x7 to provide the best in support, worldwide. Spectra Logic's corporate headquarters and US-based manufacturing has been located in Boulder, Colo., since the company's founding in 1979.

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.
