The notion of “personal genomics” has generated a great deal of buzz over the last several years but according to one researcher, many of the promises that lie at the “plateau of productivity” for this technology are tied to some significant computational-side complexities.
Today’s announcement from Rackspace about the OpenStack project, which included details about NASA involvement with some of its Nebula code, also identified partners–companies with a direct stake in creating an open cloud enviornment. We talk with one such partner, Cloud.com about their history with the project and with HPC more generally.
Striking a balance between science and software engineering.
A team of researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Georgia Tech, and Rutgers University developed the ADaptable I/O file System (ADIOS), an I/O middleware package that has shown great promise with leading fusion and astrophysics codes. Recently, ADIOS made its mark in the field of combustion.
