CHATSWORTH, Calif., Dec. 13 -- DataDirect Networks (DDN), the leading data infrastructure provider for the world's most scalable, content-intensive enterprises, today announced the company has been named one of the 100 fastest-growing private companies in the Los Angeles area -- the second largest metro in the United States -- by the Los Angeles Business Journal, and was one of only 20 companies on the list with more than $100M in annual revenue.
The award marked the latest in a series of honors for the 12-year-old company. Recognition on the annual Los Angeles Business Journal list follows DDN's inclusion in both the Inc. 500|5000 and Deloitte's Technology Fast 500. DDN is the only data storage company to appear on both of the latter two lists in 2010.
"We are very pleased to be recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in greater Los Angeles," said Alex Bouzari, CEO and cofounder, DataDirect Networks. "We are entering a new era in computing -- one marked by a surge in the creation of data, especially in scientific research, Web content and the increasing sophistication of the entertainment industry. All of these industries have strong roots here in the Los Angeles area, helping DDN to anticipate this trend and build best-in-class products to meet the demand. We are proud of our company and proud to call the Los Angeles area home."
The awards follow another year of rapid growth for DDN. This year the company announced its expansion into the Middle East and secured major customer wins as it expands into Asia, with much of the new activity coming through a burgeoning network of partners that includes Dell, HP, IBM, and Sony.
"The age of 'Big Data' is upon us -- people are recognizing they can no longer ignore the tidal wave of information that is being created all over the world," said Paul Bloch, president and cofounder, DataDirect Networks. "DDN is helping organizations around the world manage this data deluge efficiently and intelligently, and is well-positioned for continued growth."

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.

For engineers looking to leverage high-performance computing, the accessibility of a cloud-based approach is a powerful draw, but there are costs that may not be readily apparent.
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.
