Software integrates application development tools with the app store, dramatically improving developer productivity and user experience
BOULDER, Colo., Sept. 28 -- Massively Parallel Technologies, Inc. (MPT) today unveiled industry's first application ecosystem software for modern cloud computing environments. In the emerging "app-centric" world of the internet, the Blue Cheetah application ecosystem is suitable for a wide variety of industries such as massive multi-player gaming, cloud computing, business analytics, or numerically-intensive applications. It is comprised of multiple interlocking software products, the first of which, "Blue Cheetah - Cub," was released today in beta form.
"The Blue Cheetah application ecosystem is first to provide a single environment for both creation and monetization of highly-optimized modular applications," said Bobbi Hazard, CEO of MPT. "Cloud computing and multicore processors provide an immense potential for high performance and operational efficiency, but they create new problems for application development and commerce. MPT solves these problems with a new holistic solution that goes well beyond existing products."
With a growing patent portfolio, currently standing at 400+ claims (issued and pending), MPT draws from a rich technological foundation to significantly improve developer productivity and enhance user experience. A host of challenges such as organization of developer communities, application creation, optimization, parallelization, digital rights management, monetization, and revenue sharing are solved by the Blue Cheetah application ecosystem.
"Compilers, libraries, and app stores are not enough for today's developers," said Kevin Howard, CTO and co-founder of MPT. "A complete environment is a must. The Blue Cheetah application ecosystem is that environment."
About Massively Parallel Computing
Massively Parallel Technologies (MPT) has conceived of a revolutionary software ecosystem that radically simplifies application development and improves user experience. Cloud computing and multicore processors offer massive opportunities for performance and efficiency, but they create a significant problem in application creation, collaboration, optimization, rights management, access, and monetization. MPT solves that problem. With a rich patent portfolio and deep technology roots, MPT's leadership, board of directors, and board of advisors include industry luminaries and veterans from Dell, Sun, IBM, STK, and Cray. The company is privately held and is headquartered in Boulder, Colo. For more information, visit www.massivelyparallel.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.
