ITHACA, N.Y., Oct. 27 – The Cornell University Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) announced today the launch of Red Cloud, an on-demand research computing service available by subscription.
Two Red Cloud services are available. The basic offering, called “Red Cloud,” is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) that runs Eucalyptus, the open source cloud computing platform. Subscribers have root access to virtual servers and virtual disks.
The second offering, “Red Cloud with MATLAB,” is a Software as a Service (SaaS) that runs MATLAB Distributed Computing Server and features NVIDIA GPUs. Subscribers program applications on their desktops using their licensed copy of Parallel Computing Toolbox™ and then scale up to Red Cloud with MATLAB using MATLAB Distributed Computing Server.
Deployed by CAC as a flexible computing and data analysis resource for Cornell University researchers and their collaborators, Red Cloud services are now available to researchers at other academic institutions.
Red Cloud subscriptions provide fast access to data via 10Gb Ethernet in and out of the cloud at no additional charge. Subscriptions also include 50GB of storage. These features appeal to researchers who work with data-driven applications.
“Cloud computing has the potential to advance U.S. research discoveries and better prepare students for STEM careers by making computing, software, and data resources more readily available at an economy of scale,” concluded CAC director David A. Lifka.

Red Cloud services run on Dell PowerEdge C servers.
Industry may access Red Cloud as an IaaS through the center’s corporate program.

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.
Supercomputing veteran, Bo Ewald, has been neck-deep in bleeding edge system development since his twelve-year stint at Cray Research back in the mid-1980s, which was followed by his tenure at large organizations like SGI and startups, including Scale Eight Corporation and Linux Networx. He has put his weight behind quantum company....

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.
