dezineforce appliance offers rich decision-support environment, HPC cluster management and advanced search and optimisation tools to aid decision-making with data-intensive computation
Nov. 16 -- dezineforce, a provider of advanced simulation optimisation and decision support tools, will be exhibiting at SC09, the exhibition and conference devoted to high performance computing. The event will be held in Portland, Ore., from Nov. 14-20, 2009. dezineforce will be exhibiting with Dell on booth 1535 and will use SC09 to showcase the innovative appliance version of its design search and optimisation and decision support suite.
Earlier this year dezineforce partnered with Microsoft and Dell to make its cutting-edge design search and optimisation and decision support suite available as a plug-and-play appliance to give engineering companies an alternative mode of access to the unique capabilities of the dezineforce solution. The dezineforce appliance allows easy on-site deployment of its advanced graphical user environment for simulation tools currently in production in the dezineforce On-Demand service, integrated on a Microsoft and Dell high-performance computing (HPC) cluster.
dezineforce CEO George Shanks comments: "dezineforce has perfected its offering working with the engineering design community and with Microsoft and Dell. We are now rolling out the technology to other HPC markets. The challenges facing innovators in engineering are not unique. Many areas of science and technology need more flexible and easier to use platforms to execute and gain improved insight from their computational simulations. SC09 is an opportunity to reach a wide range of technical computing professionals and demonstrate how the ready-to-use dezineforce appliance eases the establishment and use of in-house simulation capabilities tailored to the needs of projects, departments and businesses."
dezineforce is a software and SaaS services company. It has developed a specialised platform for running complex third party simulation programs used by technical professionals in high-tech market sectors including biosciences, computer aided engineering, electronic design and geosciences. Available as an on-demand SaaS service and an "out of the box" appliance, the dezineforce platform offers advanced graphical workflow, data visualisation tools, HPC cluster management and advanced search and optimisation tools to aid decision-making with data-intensive computation.
The on-demand service and appliance offer a powerful combination of availability, speed and ease-of use. Because it is delivered over the Internet, the on-demand SaaS service can be accessed from anywhere in the world, by whomever the subscribing company chooses, facilitating collaboration between teams in different locations. Inbuilt flexibility of use enables immediate and essentially infinite availability to grow capacity in response to demand. The platform's capabilities to manage data-intensive computation are the result of pioneering work led by acknowledged leaders in high-performance computing, including Simon Cox, director of the Microsoft Institute for High Performance Computing at the University of Southampton, and Andy Keane, director of the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre for Computational Engineering at the University of Southampton, England.

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.

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

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.

Supercomputers at the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) have worked on important computational problems such as collapse of the atomic state, the optimization of chemical catalysts, and now modeling popping bubbles.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
