SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 28 – Marvell today announced its chairman, president, chief executive officer and founder, Dr. Sehat Sutardja, has been selected to join the Junior Achievement Business Hall of Fame in a ceremony held on January 24 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. Other honorees in the Business Hall of Fame include Bay Area executives Joseph Saunders, executive chairman of Visa; Brad Smith, CEO of Intuit; and James White, CEO of Jamba Juice.
"In today's culture, success is about building both a personal and professional foundation centered on three core principles, integrity, a strong work ethic and teamwork. It is imperative that children learn as much as they can from an early age and develop a clear economic understanding through real-world experiences," said Dr. Sutardja. "I truly believe it is the responsibility of all leaders to collaboratively invest in the next generation for the sake of the economy, future of our education system and society at large. I am delighted to receive this honor from Junior Achievement. I believe I am an example of the American dream and I am committed to continuing to work with the organization to help build the business leaders of tomorrow."
Junior Achievement is one of the world's largest organizations dedicated to educating students, giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices. Through hands-on experience, students from kindergarten through high school learn knowledge and skills in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship.
"For nearly a century, Junior Achievement has been dedicated to helping young people become entrepreneurs, develop skills that will be valued in a global workforce and proactively manage their finances. Our success is only possible through the strong support of our volunteers and community leaders like Dr. Sutardja. I am proud to welcome Dr. Sutardja into our Hall of Fame and I, along with the students whose lives he's impacted, are thankful for his tireless contributions and ongoing support," said Linda McCracken, president of Junior Achievement of Northern California.
Dr. Sehat Sutardja is widely regarded as one of the pioneers of the modern semiconductor age. His breakthrough designs and guiding vision have revolutionized numerous industry segments, from data storage to the high-performance, low-power chips now driving the growing global markets for mobile computing and telephony. His lifetime passion for electronics began early; he became a certified radio repair technician at age 13 and has been designing components and systems ever since. For his relentless innovation, he has been awarded more than 260 patents, recognized as the Inventor of the Year by the Silicon Valley Intellectual Property Law Association and has been named a Fellow of IEEE. In 2012, Dr. Sutardja was awarded the Indonesian Diaspora Lifetime Achievement Award for Global Pioneering and Innovation at the first-ever Congress of Indonesian Diaspora, presented by the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia. The award recognizes Dr. Sutardja's achievements in advancing technology through innovation in engineering, driving adoption of technology into new markets and evangelizing the use of the latest technology in developing nations that will greatly impact the future.
Dr. Sutardja holds Master of Science and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Iowa State University.

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.
