Event to feature Nexsan customer presentation on increasing storage capacity and achieving dramatic gains in reliability without accelerating costs
LAS VEGAS, Dec. 8 -- Nexsan, a leading storage system provider, today announced that the company will showcase its line of highly efficient and reliable storage systems to meet growing storage requirements at the 2010 Gartner Data Center Conference in Las Vegas, Nev. The conference will feature informative booth exhibits, educational sessions and case studies presented by experienced enterprise IT professionals at some of the world's most recognized organizations. On December 8, 2010, at 2:45 p.m, Westinghouse Electric Company will present on how it optimized its storage infrastructure to meet business objectives using Nexsan. The session will share how the global energy company used Nexsan technology to increase storage capacity and achieve dramatic gains in reliability without increasing costs or forcing datacenter expansion.
Westinghouse's datacenter is mission critical as it supports its engineering group which designs and constructs some of the world's most innovative nuclear power plants. This active development process produces exponentially increasing volumes of unstructured engineering file data and associated corporate data; the company's datacenter currently is responsible for more than 450 TB of data.
"Facing exponentially increasing storage costs and complexity, the innovative nuclear engineering organization was seeking more effective ways to reliably store a growing volume of information within its datacenters," said Richard W. Kuhar, president, ARKAY Storage Solutions. "Westinghouse quickly recognized the value provided by Nexsan's enterprise-class features, density and reliability. After five years in use, the Nexsan systems have cost-effectively met Westinghouse's IT requirements while also providing 100 percent uptime without any data loss."
"For companies that require a higher level of flexibility and reliability without physical expansion, Nexsan is able to achieve this in a very small footprint," said Randy Chalfant, vice president of strategy, Nexsan. "I encourage IT professionals at the event to join the Westinghouse presentation for real-world insight on optimizing storage infrastructure within budget while meeting IT and business objectives."

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.
