Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
Axceleon invited to particiapte on technology panel at the IDC sponsored HPC User Forum event which is taking place in Dearborn MI, September 17th through September 19th 2012.
The HPC User Forum Mission is "To Improve The Health Of The High-performance Computing Industry Through Open Discussions, Information-sharing And Initiatives Involving HPC Users In Industry, Government And Academia Along With HPC Vendors And Other Interested Parties."
“We are very pleased to be invited to participate on the technology panel that is discussing 'Emerging and Potentially Disruptive Technologies.' This is recognition that we continue to push the envelope in building new cloud based innovative technology and HPC solutions for our customers," said Michael Duffy, president and COO of Axceleon.
"The role of the 'cloud' is expanding quickly in the High Performance Computing (HPC) arena. Cloud based HPC is being actively deployed by many enterprises, large and small, across many industry segments and provides a very cost effective, flexible solution for quick and easy access to thousands of cores at a moments notice. Axceleon has over 10 years of experience and expertise working in larger private cloud environments and first deployed CloudFuzion in public clouds in 2008. We were the first to announce the ability to build complete HPC clusters in the cloud in less than 5 minutes using CloudFuzion,” commented Michael Duffy.
CloudFuzion is now offering applications as a service for certain industries, such as image processing. This is an integrated, with fully licensed applications, solution that allows launching of the HPC application directly to any cloud based cluster or compute environment anywhere in the world. CloudFuzion will move the data, including any attributes or references required, from within the company's data repository to the cloud based compute farm, and in turn, will move the resulting computed output back to the company data repository as part of an automated workflow. The engineer or scientist is oblivious as to where the experiment or applications are being processed.
CloudFuzion is a workflow automation solution for HPC applications in the cloud. CloudFuzion has the ability to manage individual clouds, virtual machines, processors/cores to maximize and optimize the HPC application’s compute needs. CloudFuzion's "Fast Track" BIG DATA module ensures that data is moved to and from cloud based HPC compute farms at maximum speed and assures that data is always in the right place at the right time for the HPC application computing needs. CloudFuzion also enables "Cloud Federation" which means integrating clouds from different providers to optimize cost and availability of certain resources. The goal being to accelerate the time to results using optimized cloud based HPC clusters.
