Moab Automation Intelligence technology enhances performance and resource utilization for HPC Users in the Amazon Web Services cloud
PROVO, Utah, July 27 -- Adaptive Computing, a leader in intelligent automation software for HPC, datacenter and cloud environments, today announced that its leading Moab unified automation intelligence technology is compatible with Cluster Compute Instances for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), a new offering for high performance computing (HPC) in the cloud. Adaptive Computing customers can now leverage Amazon's EC2 Cluster Compute Instances capabilities to augment existing resources while maintaining the intelligent, policy-driven automation that Moab successfully delivers for the world's largest cloud and HPC environments.
After extensive testing, Adaptive Computing confirmed that the new Amazon Cluster Compute Instances are robust, reliable and capable of delivering the compute power, bandwidth and low latency required by HPC class applications. Moab technology ensures that cloud resources can be utilized with up to ninety-nine percent efficiency and, when combined with Amazon's EC2 Cluster Compute Instance environment, creates a dynamic and intelligent environment that offers excellent value and return on investment in HPC cloud resources.
"Our customers are excited about the potential of cloud computing but many have been disappointed by the lack of true HPC class capability in the public cloud until now. Amazon's new Cluster Compute Instances changes that landscape," said Michael Jackson, president of Adaptive Computing. "Our tests have shown the combined Moab and Amazon EC2 Cluster Compute Instance environment to be the right mix of performance, capability and price to deliver true HPC cloud services to both existing customers and a whole new class of HPC users."
"We're pleased Adaptive Computing customers can now reap the benefits of the cloud -- including pay-as-you-go pricing, the ability to add or shed resources on-demand and the opportunity to focus on business-differentiating programs -- without sacrificing operational performance, reliability or security," said Deepak Singh, business development manager, Amazon Web Services. "We're excited to see what customers can achieve with Cluster Compute Instances for Amazon EC2 along with familiar management tools provided by Adaptive Computing."
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a Web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers. Amazon EC2's simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction. It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon's proven computing environment. Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change. Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios.

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 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...

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.
