Based on the success of the recent ISC Cloud and ISC Big Data conferences in Heidelberg, the organizers will once again conduct the conferences in tandem next fall. The ISC Cloud’14 event will be held on September 29th and 30th, followed by ISC Big Data’14 from October 1st to 2nd, again at the Heidelberg Marriott.
IBM inventors have developed a method for dynamically managing network bandwidth within a cloud, which could lead to significant improvements in overall system performance, efficiency and economy. The cloud computing invention provides a method for automatically deciding the best way for users to access a cloud computing system based on availability of network bandwidth.
At LinuxCon 2013, IBM announced plans to invest $1 billion (USD) in new Linux and open source technologies for IBM's Power Systems servers. The investment aims to help clients capitalize on big data and cloud computing with modern systems built to handle the new wave of applications coming to the data center in the post-PC era.
Intel Corporation’s new Xeon Processor E5-2600 v2 product family (code named “Ivy Bridge-EP”), a new set of versatile processors that promises to redefine the server, storage and networking infrastructure found in datacenters.
For small and midsize organizations, the outsourcing of demanding computational tasks to the cloud — huge banks of computers accessible over the Internet — can be much more cost-effective than buying their own hardware. But it also poses a security risk: A malicious hacker could rent space on a cloud server and use it to launch programs that hijack legitimate applications, interfering with their execution.
HyperWorks Unlimited offers companies a fully configured hardware and software appliance for computer-aided engineering (CAE).
The Dell virtualization operations management suite is comprised of a trio of solutions designed to help businesses of all sizes streamline virtualization, storage and cloud computing initiatives. The suite includes Foglight for Virtualization, Enterprise and Standard Editions 7.0, as well as Foglight for Storage Management 3.0

Microsoft Corp. has decided its entire business needs a new operating system. CEO Steve Ballmer is restructuring the company to cope with a quickening pace of technological change that has left the world's largest software maker a step behind its two biggest rivals, Apple and Google.
IBM has announced that it completed the acquisition of SoftLayer Technologies, a privately held cloud computing infrastructure company based in Dallas, TX. On June 4, IBM announced that it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire SoftLayer. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Univa, the Data Center Automation Company and home of Grid Engine, has announced the kickoff of the 20th anniversary of Grid Engine software. Grid Engine is a widely deployed distributed resource management software, providing a powerful, integrated software solution suite for mission-critical enterprise technical computing and Big Data applications.
IBM has unveiled an extensive array of cloud solutions designed for the C-suite to help executives accelerate innovation around customer experience to meet their business objectives in concert with their company's IT strategy. Among the newest cloud business offerings is a Big Data and social analytics solution that chief marketing officers (CMOs) can use to get an emotional reading on how customers view their brand.
The proportion of high performance computing (HPC) sites employing co-processors and accelerators more than doubled during the past two years, and a surprising two thirds of HPC sites are now performing Big Data analysis as part of their HPC workloads, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Study of HPC End-User Sites.
Penguin Computing has announced that it is developing a highly efficient large scale cloud storage deployment with industry partners Calxedaand Inktank. Calxeda is a manufacturer of ARM based SoCs (System on Chip). Inktank is the company delivering Ceph — the massively scalable, open source, software-defined storage system.
A six-month study led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) with funding from Google has found that moving common software applications used by 86 million U.S. workers to the cloud could save enough electricity annually to power Los Angeles for a year.
Homomorphic encryption is one of the most exciting new research topics in cryptography, which promises to make cloud computing perfectly secure. With it, a Web user would send encrypted data to a server in the cloud, which would process it without decrypting it and send back a still-encrypted result.
The phrase “Big data” means different things to different people. Some believe that the big data is hype and will fade away with time, but the same was said about cloud computing four years ago. ISC Events, with its 28 years of experience in organizing scientific computing conferences realized early on that high performance computing (HPC), big data and cloud are converging, prompting far-reaching implications
OrangeFS is a parallel virtual file system designed for high performance computing (HPC), big data and data intensive applications, such as research, genomics and seismic. OrangeFS High Performance Cloud Storage is available on AWS Marketplace as a Community version, or as an Advanced (Provisioned IOPS) version, with the consistent performance of Provisioned IOPs and advanced support from Omnibond.
The EMC ViPR Software-Defined Storage platform is designed to manage storage infrastructure (the Control Plane) and the data residing within that infrastructure (the Data Plane), allowing service providers and IT departments to drive toward the operational model of web-scale data centers without building a custom environment.
