There’s nothing simple about defining middleware to begin with, but that process gets far more complex when the goal is to paint a broad picture of trends around such a nebulous set of tools. Despite the enormity of the task, HPC analyst group, Intersect360 Research, tied together a wealth of findings around a comprehensive definition Read more…
Research firms are predicting strong growth for the cloud computing markets.
It is often said that managing enterprise risk and micro risk is about finding the needle in the haystack. Predictive analytics uses powerful computers with large memory and storage to eliminate 90 percent of the hay, those “easy” decisions that a computer can handle effortlessly. The modeling systems then score the remaining 10 percent, prioritizing the activities of the human analysts and investigators to do what they do best, which is to make the optimal decision.
Using high performance computing to help modernize US manufacturing is one of those good ideas that seems inevitable but always just out of reach. A recent study confirms this, and provides a framework for strengthening the HPC landscape in this sector.
An interview with Addison Snell at ISC in Hamburg on the significant barriers for ISVs as HPC moves into the cloud, including the perception of licensing model decisions, data movement and, of course, data security.
Faced with mounting pressure from partners and end users in the HPC community, application software vendors are striving to cope with what it means to offer their software as a service. To learn more about the potential for cloud expansion, InterSect360 Research has been conducting a study of the outlook of SaaS and cloud computing models among the HPC ISV community.
