PRINCETON, NJ, Dec. 8 -- Dataram Corporation, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-quality computer memory, storage products and software, announced today the expansion of its SAN Consultancy Services to include Assessment and Optimization, Installation and Support, and Vendor Selection/Evaluation. These services provide users with the ability to maximize their SAN investments while optimizing performance and efficiency.
Dataram's SAN Consultancy Services leverage the significant expertise and intellectual capital developed during the research and development of XcelaSAN, Dataram's game-changing SAN storage optimization and acceleration solution. Dataram SAN consultants maintain unique skills and insights on a wide array of storage technologies, hardware, software and tools, based on their involvement in the XcelaSAN product development phase. This extensive knowledge will be deployed to help customers proactively optimize their SANs for performance and efficiency, and to plan effectively for their future needs.
Dataram identified the opportunity to extend their value proposition to customers during XcelaSAN installations. As customers installed XcelaSAN to achieve immediate high-availability application performance improvements and SAN optimization, their interactions with Dataram System Engineers brought to their attention the unique insights and skills the SE's maintain. Customers began to inquire if they could retain system engineering services to assist with strategic planning and other challenging issues. It soon became apparent to Dataram that a structured SAN services offering would support Dataram's mission to help customers optimize and leverage their data center assets.
"Companies build SANs for performance, availability and scalability, but it's a challenge for IT departments to truly understand how optimized their networked storage really is," said Tom Mayberry, director of product development at Dataram. "Dataram's SAN-based services are designed to help IT managers pinpoint current and impending bottlenecks and help them effectively plan for the future."
Dataram's Assessment and Optimization service provides a health-check of performance metrics in a customer's current storage infrastructure. This assessment helps customers avoid near-term problems by providing detailed visibility into current thresholds, and reduces future troubleshooting exercises by providing a basis for comparison.
"Customers depend on having their storage network up and running optimally 100 percent of the time," continued Mayberry. "Dataram's SAN Consultancy Services provide IT managers with the knowledge and skills to implement effective solutions. The result is improved reaction time to performance demands, a better managed SAN and improved ROI."
The Installation and Support services assist with the effective and timely integration of new or existing SAN technologies and capabilities into a customer's current environment.
The Vendor Selection/Evaluation service supports the formal evaluation and selection process of a high-performance, mass data storage platform for business applications to identify a well suited solution including improved efficiency, redundancy and performance of mission-critical data.
Dataram is unique in that it provides full SAN solution capability, delivering both products and services that help customers optimize their environment to meet critical business requirements. Customers who choose the Dataram Consultancy Services gain the expertise of a professional consulting firm with broad experience in commercially available storage products and proven experience in storage selection, implementation and support. Dataram consultants deliver actionable recommendations for SAN environments, and ensure customers are prepared to meet current and future business demands for performance and efficiency with the most cost-effective solutions.
Founded in 1967, Dataram (NASDAQ: DRAM) is a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-quality computer memory, storage and software products. Its products and services deliver IT infrastructure optimization, dramatically increase application performance and deliver substantial cost savings. Dataram solutions are deployed in 70 Fortune 100 companies and in mission-critical government and defense applications around the world. For more information about Dataram, visit www.dataram.com.

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.
