Sept. 13 -- AMAX, a leading innovator of high performance computing (HPC), dynamic enterprise IT, and custom appliance manufacturing solutions, has announced that their Zettaset-powered PHAT-Data (Peta-scale Hadoop Analytics Technology) Hadoop Platform is the winner of a GOLD Stevie Award in the Best New Product or Service of the Year – Hardware category in the 9th Annual International Business Awards.
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit, and non-profit, large, and small. The 2012 IBAs received entries from more than 50 nations and territories.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Seoul, South Korea on 15 October.
“Zettaset is pleased that Orchestrator™, our powerful Hadoop installation and management application, is playing a key role in AMAX’s award-winning Big Data reference architecture,” said Jim Vogt, CEO of Zettaset. “Orchestrator’s ability to manage any Hadoop distribution means that PHAT-Data has the flexibility to fit into any enterprise environment and accelerate time to value.”
“PHAT-Data is AMAX’s answer to the industry’s need for a high-performance Hadoop solution running on optimized hardware, with simplified deployment in mind,” said Jean Shih, President, AMAX. “Hadoop is a necessary and powerful tool for business intelligence, and we are honored that PHAT-Data has been recognized for leading the charge as a truly innovative, game-changing product.”
The AMAX PHAT-Data line of products offers a highly scalable, tunable, and easy to deploy platform bundled with Zettaset Orchestrator and Apache Hadoop to solve Big Data acquisition, storage and analysis problems, and has been thoroughly tested and certified production-ready to be deployed on any scale. PHAT-Data is the ONLY open-architecture designed solution that also maintains 100% compatibility with Java-based MapReduce applications with full open standards support right out of the box.
Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 300 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process this year.
Zettaset is an enterprise software company that delivers an enterprise-ready and hardened Hadoop solution designed for organizations that need a more automated, efficient, and reliable way to structure and manage Big Data. Zettaset Orchestrator™ is scalable, secure, and resilient, and can be used to manage any Apache-based Hadoop distribution. Unlike other Big Data approaches which are costly and require significant development time and resources to implement, Orchestrator is easy to deploy, enabling faster time to value while dramatically lowering total cost of ownership by eliminating dependencies on professional services.

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.
