CloudSigma CEO Elaborates on Science Cloud

Jun 14, 2013 |

Experimental scientific HPC applications are continually being moved to the cloud, as covered here in several capacities over the last couple of weeks. Included in that rundown, Co-founder and CEO of CloudSigma Robert Jenkins penned an article for HPC in the Cloud where he discussed the emergence of cloud technologies to supplement research capabilities of big scientific initiatives like CERN and ESA (the European Space Agency)…

The Science Cloud Cometh

May 28, 2013 |

Monumental scientific undertakings have very different goals, but one important feature in common: the huge amounts of data that must be processed efficiently in order to yield accurate results. The answer to this dilemma may lie in one of today’s most innovative computing delivery technologies: cloud computing.

Helix Nebula: from Grid to Cloud and Lessons Learned So Far

Jul 17, 2012 |

European cloud computing is taking off as can be seen in the progress of Helix Nebula. The major pan-European cloud project announced last week that they were moving from the initial proof of concept phase to the start of the two-year pilot phase, which involves expanded proofs of concept and perhaps some additional demand side partners. Just a few months into the project, the participants discuss the challenges of migrating science into the cloud.
